Bouts – We Tried
Dublin’s Bouts are coming off a buzzworthy appearance at CMJ and after listening to “We Tried”, I can see why. The garage rock track has a plethora of guitar and a melody that has been circling in my head for days.

Solomon Grey – Firechild
The press release describes mysterious act Solomon Grey as for fans of TV on the Radio and Twin Shadow. I concur.

Red Clover Ghost – The Dark Haired Queen
Twin brother folk duo Red Clover Ghost pretty much won me over from the instant I heard the subtle banjo strumming on “The Dark Haired Queen”. The layered vocal harmonies and tambourine proceed to put it over the top. Pick up their self-titled debut album on Good Soil Records now (or at Amazon).

The 1975 – Sex
You might remember The 1975‘s infectious breakthrough track “The City” from my last mixtape. The Manchester four-piece appears to have another hit on their hands with the pulsing lead cut from their soon to be released EP, Sex. Pre-order the EP now or pick it up on 11/20.
