New Cayetana LP Available for Streaming

The DIY ladies of Cayetana came together and taught themselves how to play their instruments. And after the successful release of their debut LP Nervous Like Me (Tiny Engines), they have also bravely chosen to start their own label Plum Records - "rock and roll without compromise" - to release their forthcoming album, New Kind of Normal, due out May 5. "The record is about mental health…struggling with that and settling into a new kind of normal where you can finally recognize your own your destructive behaviors and accept love into your life." Cayetana just premiered New Kind of Normal over at Hype Machine, and you can stream it below now.

Wilder Maker unveils groovy summer jam, "New Streets" + plays Rough Trade on 05.06

From the electric guitar hook to the soft, confident, sultry vocals, it is clear that Brooklyn's Wilder Maker has mastered the art of caressing the ear in "New Streets." I am not hesitant to call this one of my favorite new songs- the affectionate, breathy saxophone and the breakout drums exude freshness, turning this song into a real jam. Gabriel Birnbaum has mastered the art of the chill-yet-groovy indie anthem and Katie Von Schleicher's vocals exert peak girl-power and a refined boldness. "New Streets" is on repeat on my playlist, and it should be on yours, too. Catch the band live at Rough Trade on May 6th. - Geena Kloeppel

 

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Rootsy songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

The Toads' ode to Portland

Portland has become quite the popular place over the last few years. The influx of new residents has pretty much ruined what old locals have considered to be all that's in the city, with all the condos going up and old haunts going down essentially serving as proof of that.

But no matter how much Portlandia may have skewed (somehow accurately and inaccurately all at once) their depiction of Portland, The Toads have written their own little ditty about this rainy city. It reigns incredibly true.

With lyrics touching on how open Portland is with nearly every type of social and individual freedom, "Portland, Or" shows how much The Toads love their town in a catchy, pop-punky way. If anything, it should be the city's anthem. 

Give it a listen below and see how much of it sounds "so typically Portland."

The catchy melody of The Loved's "Back to Me"

Poppy indie rock trio The Loved sure know how create harmonious melody, especially out of the simplicity of just three chords.

Driven by Lael Alderman's expressive vocals, The Loved balances galvanic rock with the tenderness of dulcet songwriting and rhythmic instrumentation from bassist Daven Hall and drummer Jake Endicott. They're doing a staggered release of their debut album, by dropping a series of singles throughout the first half of the year. The first single, "Back to Me," has a video that coincides with it.

"Back to Me" as an idea seemingly came out of nowhere for the band, and within seven minutes was a finished song. The song has a lot of power and its video compliments it well. On the song, Hall said:

"There was a vision for this album going into the studio, where we could create an album that moved and would move you, that would sometimes rock you, and where there would still be plenty of space for things to breathe, and we walked out off there with all that."

Watch the video for "Back to Me" below.
