The Legends have long been a personal favorite of mine, ever since their debut Up Against the Legends back in 2003. Now, the Swedish band are prepping their 6th full length album Nightshift. New single “Cash” finds the band continuing further into a more electro synth-pop sound than that of their earlier years. Give it a spin!
Blond Ambition has announced the spring release of his debut lp Slow All Over and with that announcement comes a brand new single, “Stupid Boy / Girl”.
“This song belongs to trans people. For someone to know who they truly are and not be able to be that person because of fear and hate is an epidemic level spiritual tragedy. I hope things get better, and I think they will.” – Brian Harding
We recently featured Blond Ambition in our On Repeat series.
The Range (aka New York producer James Hinton) has reworked a track from his excellent 2016 lp Potential for his contribution to Our First 100 Days, a benefit compilation made up of “one hundred songs that inspire progress and benefit a cause for change”. Hear “Retune (Redone)” below.

Last year Patrick Doyle, former drummer for British indie pop band Veronica Falls, released his debut as Boys Forever with a really great self-titled album. We just recently caught wind of how great this record is and now it’s in heavy rotation. Listen to the instantly catchy closing track “Underground”.
Though Doyle is from London, he recorded the album in sunny Los Angeles and he shot a video there for the standout track “Voice In My Head”.
San Francisco’s Cold Beat are set to release the new album Chaos By Invitation this spring. The first single is a lovely and delicate, very sweet synth-pop song that really takes off with a dreamy, spaced-out climax.
London’s Chemtrails released their debut ep Love In Toxic Wasteland at the tail end of 2016 and ever since, they have been making quite a splash with their youthful and infectious brand of fuzzed-out lo-fi rock. Listen to the third single and standout track “Golden Tombs”.
Love In Toxic Wasteland is available now on PNKSLM.
Australian psychedelic pop band (and Tame Impala associated) POND are gearing up for the spring release of their new album The Weather and today they share a video for the opening track “30000 Megatons”.
The Weather is out May 5 on Marathon Artists. Pre-Order is available here.
