Excited about: Gangly – Gangly EP (and Iceland Airwaves 2017)

Today Iceland Airwaves announced their 2017 lineup and local band Gangly is part of it. They also just released their debut EP, which may come as a surprise, because singer Jófríður Ákadóttir has probably the most iconic voice in Iceland – after you-know-who. Anyway, if you can, go see them[…]

EXCITED ABOUT: Oriel Poole – Sunday EP

“Sunday” is the debut EP by L.A.-based singer/songwriter Oriel Poole who followed her passion, taught herself the tools of the trade and started to make music. The five tracks, while rooted in soul and electro-pop, are refreshingly genre-free: Oriel does what she likes, but in the end everything fits together[…]

EXCITED ABOUT: Holy Boy – Holy Boy EP

The self-titled debut EP by Holy Boy has become one of my favorites this year. With its drum-heavy, dark vibes the music reminds of early Zola Jesus, before she employed massive orchestral sounds. Helene Alexandra Jaeger, the woman behind Holy Boy, tries to tap the subconsciousness for her song writing[…]

EXCITED ABOUT: Drinker – Happy Accident EP

“Happy Accident” is an accurate title for the debut EP by Brooklyn/L.A. duo Drinker: the four songs are atmospheric, surprising and full of melancholic, contradictory beauty and designed to put you in a reflective state. One of my favorites this year. Listen to the new single “Sinking/Feeling”: Listen on Spotify[…]

Excited About: Basement Revolver – Agatha EP

“Agatha” is the second EP by Canadian indie rock three-piece Basement Revolver with four slow and reflective songs, such as “Tree Trunks” about singer Chrisy Hurn’s coping with panic attacks: Tree trunks was written when I started experiencing panic attacks for the first time, and my increasing need to find[…]

EXCITED ABOUT: L. $hamPain – Color And Light

Following L. $hamPain’s body of work is like a journey to a not yet known genre: you know that she will arrive at an exciting place, but you can’t tell where that will be. “Color and Light”, her seventh EP in less than two years, continues on the path of[…]

Excited About: Polyphia – The Most Hated (EP)

Dallas-based instrumental four-piece Polyphia creates a rather unique guitar, rhythm and bass heavy sound, taking cues from jazz, R&B and hip hop and blending them all together into something new and truly exciting! They just released their new EP “The Most Hated” and we had the great joy and honor to exclusively premiere[…]


Kyndyl Miller is a classically trained pianist and holder of music degrees, but she also masters the art of creating intelligent and catchy electro-pop that defies the usual clichés. Under the name Kyyn she released five songs on an excellent self-titled EP. Listen to “Kyyn” on Apple Music or Spotify:

EXCITED ABOUT: Slowdive – Slowdive

Slowdives’s dreamy shoegaze is the kind of music that lifts you up and carries you away on soft, thick guitar layers. The English five-piece called it quits for 22 years, but here they are again with an excellent self-titled album. Listen to “Slowdive” on Spotify or Apple Music:
