I appreciate you for showing some love to these artists, streaming these albums is a really cool way to help this artist, remember to give them a follow, a + (Spotify), and a heart (social media), you might already know it but I have to say it: you rock! Waste no more time and let’s get to it!



1.- Arson Whales, the four-piece indie rock group hailing from Northern California, has made a stunning debut with their first album release, “Galactopus.” This mesmerizing collection of songs takes listeners on a sonic journey, blending synth electronic rock with indie rock influences to create a truly unique and captivating sound. The band consists of Linda Brancato (vocals, guitar, synth), Joe Kimberlin (lead guitar), Brad Penner (bass), and Stephen Linn (drums, vocals). You can keep reading our review here.

2.- German folk artist Roland Wälzlein just released his brand new EP titled Wonderful under the moniker Fish and Scale. The four-track EP comes as his first record since the gorgeous album “You Can Call Me Love” in 2021, and we’ve already talked about the EP’s opening track “Stay!” back in April – spoiler alert: we loved it!

3.- Dogface and the Pony Soldiers the solo project of Sean McCauley hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, delivers a captivating alternative folk rock and Americana album titled “No Better Time.” Inspired by the tumultuous events of the 2020 Covid crisis and his personal health battles, McCauley takes listeners on a journey of finding peace and calm in a chaotic and aggressive world. With echoes of The Beatles, Wilco, and Father John Misty, the album showcases McCauley’s diverse musical influences, including Belle and Sebastian, Radiohead, and Nirvana.

4.- Astral Lite’s new record “Pseudoscientist” is equal parts sonically and lyrically focused, unlike other modern psych bands who blur their lyrics under the guitar noise. This is a record about duality and the many spectrums of life.

5.- Spiders Eat Vinyl returns with Sleep in Roses EP, exploring romantic yearning, gentrification, homelessness, and grief across its 16 minutes. In the sonic mix are influences from the euphoric blend of guitars and electronics of Factory Records, to the summery jangle of The Go-Betweens and Crowded House, via the sleek futurist beats of early Warp.

6.- jrdfllrmn is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer from Youngstown, Ohio. His debut album, “albatross,” is an introspective dream-pop odyssey that employs multiple genres and styles to create an equally cohesive and varied listening experience. The album was written and recorded between classes and work throughout his sophomore year of college, which also helped provide songwriting material. Utilizing blissful melodies, shoegaze atmospheres, and unique song structures, this album is simply not one to overlook.

7.- Willa in her own words: “I am a pop singer-songwriter from Northern California making music that is reminiscent in lyrics & upbeat in melodies. I write music for those who feel lost in love & who might need a “Blueprint for Breakups”. Combining powerful vocals & soulful lyrics, I have been able to tell stories of love & heartache in music form.”

8.- Elijah Jones and the Ccs “Dead Dogs and Lost Loves” in their own words: “Our lyrical content deals with lost love, addiction, disillusionment, and the occasional touch of optimism. We are believers in the idea that music should be appreciated in the form of complete albums in the sense that one would not only appreciate a single chapter of a book. Our music tells a story, and we hope to connect with people who identify with that story.

9.- Become a Dance is Mythie‘s second EP. Second part of a diptych designed on the theme of interior animals, it is the conclusion of an initiatory journey from shadow to light begun with his first EP Until the fight. Through a cinematic and original universe, each song offers the listener an introspective encounter with an animal, inspired by experiences of shamanic journeys.

In the continuity of his first EP, these 5 new titles are composed like a collage from voices, samples recorded by Mythie, electronic rhythms, and her favorite instruments: kalimba, stylophone, and melodica, which she likes to resample and modify to create unique and singular sounds. The voice always occupies a central place: sometimes saturated, filtered, pitched or split, often modified, it seems protean, between pop singing, spoken word, and choirs.
