  1. Single Serving: American Wrestlers – I Can Do No Wrong

    Not much is known of American Wrestlers just yet – aside from it being a project by an artist who was born in Scotland and is now based in St. Louis, Missouri. I guess for now he’s letting this single speak for itself. “I Can Do No Wrong” is a beautiful little piece of lo-fi Continue…

    The debut single from St. Louis-by-way-of Scotland songwriter American Wrestlers is a warm slice of lo-fi power pop.

  2. Single Serving: Jessica Pratt – Back, Baby

    San Francisco singer Jessica Pratt is set to release On Your Own Love Again, the follow-up to her 2012 self-titled debut album. The first offering from the upcoming LP is the tranquil folk of “Back, Baby.” The song opens with three strummed chords as Pratt softly sings “sometimes I pray for the rain” and that Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Natalie Prass – Why Don’t You Believe In Me

    Hearing this song from Nashville singer Natalie Prass had me thinking of sounds both classic and current. Blending elements of soul, R&B, jazz and pop might seem ambitious, but ‘Why Don’t You Believe In Me’ is so wonderfully crafted that it all feels right. The one thing that struck me upon first listen is how Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Bully – Milkman

    Nashville band Bully just dropped the lead single from their upcoming self-released EP and it’s a certified banger. Led by singer Alicia Bognanno, the fuzzed out “Milkman” is a fast paced bit of pop-punk infused indie with some garage rock influences to boot. It’s just unfortunate that before you know it, the just over 2-minute Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Crying – Batang Killjoy

    If you’re in need of some seriously fun melodies combined with epic video game sounds, you’ll want to press play on the latest offering from Crying. And that description merely scratches the surface of the band’s sound. The delicate vocals of lead singer Elaiza Santos float underneath the calculated yet chaotic mix – creating something Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Restorations – Misprint

    Philadelphia is a city with a great musical heritage and continues to produce plenty of great bands. Enter Restorations, a Philly band who wears influences like The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen and especially, in my opinion, Constantines, on their sleeve. But instead of coming across as a mere copycat, Restorations exist in their own musical realm. Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Little Big League – Tropical Jinx

    With links to bands like Strand Of Oaks and Titus Andronicus, it’s no surprise Little Big League sound like a band inspired by indie rock and punk. Their 2012 LP These Are Good People remains an underrated gem, and their latest single (also the name of their upcoming full-length) ‘Tropical Jinx’ is more evidence that Continue…

  8. Single Serving: Dads – Fake Knees

    Although it wasn’t the first song of theirs I’d heard, the first Dads song I really took note of was “No, We’re Not Actually.” The song closes out last year’s breakout Pretty Good EP – and lyrically it details a refusal to accept the mortality of a loved one. Its release also coincided with my Continue…

  9. Single Serving: Hey Rosetta! – Kintsukuroi

    St. John’s, Newfoundland seven-piece Hey Rosetta! are set to release Second Sight, their follow-up to 2011′s fantastic Seeds – and the first single is another dazzling bit of indie pop. “Kintsukuroi” – which is named after the Japanese art form of fixing broken pottery with adhesives such as gold, platinum and silver – features a Continue…

  10. Single Serving: S – Brunch

    As a former member of Carissa’s Weird, it’s no surprise Jenn Ghetto’s solo project S is an emotionally charged musical endeavor. But, thankfully, with her latest track “Brunch” it’s not just about bringing the sad. Even with lyrics that detail a bad breakup, the catchy vocal performance and instrumentation bounce along enough to mask some Continue…

  11. Single Serving: The Rural Alberta Advantage – On The Rocks

    “On The Rocks” by Toronto indie rockers The Rural Alberta Advantage is, according to lead singer Nils Edenloff, about both accepting that a romantic relationship is ending and also related to his first trip to Newfoundland and Labrador (Canada’s easternmost province, also referred to as “The Rock”). And these lyrical themes blend beautifully with the Continue…
