NEW MUSIC: Partner – “Personal Weekend” (Alt Rock/Canadiana//Sackville, NB)

partner weekend

The most related a song on this list by far. East coast shredders Josee and Lucy aka Partner deliver the ode to the midweek break. Maybe you already got drunk on a Wednesday to this song and some other alt rock tunes on their Healthy Release cassette available at live shows through You’ve Changed.

NEW MUSIC: Vallens – “Devour” (Shoegaze/Chill Wave//Toronto, ON)

We’ve known about the upcoming LP from Vallens for some time but now news of a release date and the album title Consent have been exposed. Along with another haunting melody with the shoegaze track “Devour”. Listen below before the debut drops June 24th via Hand Drawn Dracula.

NEW MUSIC: Mitski – “Happy” (Alt Pop/Experimental Rock//Brooklyn, NY)

Mitski is no stranger when it comes to revealing her emotions. The second single from the indie rocker’s fourth album helps to prove this point. “Happy” starts as a melancholy slow burner before it building into a spectacle of drum machines and saxophone. Puberty 2 drops on June 17th.

NEW MUSIC: Kristin Kontrol – “(Don’t) Wannabe” (Synth/Dream Pop//Brooklyn, NY)

Kristin-Kontrol-640x960

Kristen Welchez aka Kristen Kontrol aka Dee Dee hasn’t fallen from from the Dum Dum Girls tree. But now, with her solo project, the New York musician replaces guitars for synths in this spaced out, 80s inspired pop ballad “(Don’t) Wannabe”. The debut album from Kontrol drops on the 27th via Sub Pop.
