Band: STONE
Who: Boiling post-punk force

Track: WASTE

Like Yard Act, if they turned up the decibels.
A stream of in-your-face spits and sneers.
On their way to major exploits. Fact!

Band: BEALBY POINT
Who: Passionate rock 4-piece from Vancouver, Canada
The name Bealby Point derives from the boys’ favorite
beachside vacation spot in the British Columbian interior.

Track: WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Steamed-up energy and passion with a monumental chorus.
Think NYC darlings The Strokes on a roll. Don’t miss this
flaming unit. They’re top-flight.

Band: VAN GOOSE
Who: Singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, NY

Track: WHERE IS CLAIRE
From his 2nd longplayer, named Post-Truth and Bird Feeders that lands on 2 September. The product of Lavie’s year-long dive into the strangest pockets of the digital world in an effort to understand the effects of modern technology and social media on our minds and spirits. “Who the fuck did we get here? Pre-order here.

“Where is Claire” is about watching a loved one as they tumble
down the post-truth rabbit hole and fall victim to an online cult.”

Trippy, chilling, ambient, jazzy-like freewheeling.
Glorious guitar play. Both gentle and spellbinding.
Getting better and better with every spin.

Touchdown.

Artist: RAINN BYRNS
Who: Up and coming British singer-songwriter.

Single: BIG

Want references? Jake Bugg, Vampire Weekend, Ed Sheeran. Cool right? Absolutely.
Big is a tickling tune with a country feel, You can sing along, hum along, whistle along.
Getting better and better with every spin.

Hit quality.

Band: KIDS IN AMERICA
I wonder if these are the kids Kim Wilde was singing about back then.
Anyway, this tandem produce contagious pop pizzazz.
Single: MY YOUTH IS WASTED feat.

Their youth may be wasted, but this humdinger isn’t.
These grown-up kids cause a harmonious thrill here,
that gets under your skin without asking. And having
Kryz Reid of Third Eye Blind for an energizing-electric
guitar solo is super-duper.
