Moruga Scorpio Releases EP "1"

Moruga Scorpio's debut EP, 1, is an unapologetic collection of sweet, groovy, pop tunes that even music snobs can get into. The tunes blend surfy, classic sounding pop reminiscent of The Beach Boys with darker, heavier, weirder, psychedelic elements that bring The Butthole Surfers to mind. The songs are self-proudced by Evan Donohue, the mastermind behind Moruga Scorpio and former Diarrhea Planet member. Upon listening, it seems he harbors a strong distate genre limitations. There really isn't a single category you can definitively box these songs into, and that makes his music exciting. Morgua Scorpio is for anyone who simply likes great songs with great production. Give it a listen:

Miki Fiki Releases Debut EP

Miki Fiki is a new project started by singer/songwriting Ted Hartog. His debut self-titled EP is a brass-heavy collection of heartbreaky pop tunes that have an irresistably sweet blend of nostalgia, catharsis and melancholy. Clearly influenced by indie pop sensations like Whitney and Ben Folds, Hartog's work is lyric-heavy, with triumphant melodies that stick like glue to memory. The EP's three songs chronicle the chaos of the post breakup emotional state and painstakingly organize it. If this short work is any indication of what's to come from Miki Fiki in the future, indie pop fans had better be on the lookout because, sonically, there's nothing else like this happening in Nashville.

Buzz Alert! High Waisted unveils new video for "Trust" + tours

With such a touch-and-go winter, I'm not going to be convinced that the first day of Spring has actually arrived until all of the snow has melted off my front lawn. Luckily for me, I have garage pop band, High Waisted, to warm me up and get me into that summer mindset. The NYC-based group deals in sunshine surf vibes, drawing heavily from music of the mid-60's, but puts their own, quirky spin on things. Their songs are fun, high-energy tracks guaranteed to have you California dreaming, even while you shlep through the remainder of slush. Right now, the band is touring the East Coast in support of their latest album, On Ludlow, but we're sure that they won't be away from New York for long. In the meantime, take a look at the official video from their new single, "Trust" streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

New Elegant Animals EP Available for Streaming & Download

Elegant Animals has just released another new EP Warm Blood Pt. 2. The record seamlessly ties together electro R&B and soul. While coasting on buoyant, pillowy grooves, the songs allude to an air of danger. “Amateur Video,” with its smooth, seductive, simmering, bedroom funk, feels like a nod to the late, great Prince. Finally, album closer, “Saved,” surveys in a streetwalking, soulful nostalgia. Make it the soundtrack to your stroll or ride through Philly this beautiful weekend.

New Track: "The News" - Tubey Frank

“The News,” featured on Tubey Frank’s debut EP Tubey Frank Goes To Trash Camp!, has our ears perked. The track's spiraling guitar and rhythms intermingle, creating a state of whimsy with harmonizing vocals encouraging listeners to sing along. About halfway through, the trajectory changes slightly as the guitar exhibits a compelling, raw force, setting the stage for the vocals to ratchet up in a throaty thrust. However, that temporary demonstration of fortitude quickly resolves itself, mellowing back onto the path.
