Kane Strang: "My Smile Is Extinct"

Pop and New Zealand are usually a successful cocktail, and such is the case with Kane Strang's new single, the absolutely brilliant " My Smile Is Extinct". He really knows how to write great guitar pop jams that mix a bit of jangle with edgy power pop, and is putting out his second album, Two Hearts And No Brain, on June 30th.

Waxahatchee: "Silver"

After two great albums as Waxahatchee, Katie Cruchfield returns with a new one this summer, a record called Out In The Storm to be released on July 14th through Merge. "Silver" is the first single, a great 90's inspired guitar pop track with a fuller and more electric sound than her previous efforts.

Cigarretes After Sex: "Apocalypse"

We are really excited about this band and their personal interpretation of "ambient pop". We have loved every single they have put out so far, and "Apocalypse"is no exception, an elegant, soft and beautiful track that also serves as the announcement of their debut album, which will come out on June 9th via Partisan Records.

Skating Polly: "Hail Mary"

Skating Polly are an indie-rock trio from Oklahoma fronted by stepsisters Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, who despite being young, have already a prolific discography with a sound that it's an homage to their 90's heroes, bands like Babys In Toyland, Nirvana or Bikini Kill. For their new Ep, New Trick, they have teamed up with Veruca Salt's Louise Post and Nina Gordon and the result is the impressively amazing new single "Hail Mary"

Chastity Belt: "Different Now"

We loved Chastity Belt's  Time To Go Home, as we think the band has something really unique and special in their surf infused guitar pop. "Different Now" is the opening track of a new album , I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone, out on June 2nd, which sounds really great and has a very cool video inspired in Temple Of The Dog's "Hunger Strike"
