Aunts crack and sizzle in new EP "The Last Great Place"

BOOM! POW! KABAM! That is how the music of Hartford’s Aunts cracks, and more so in their latest record The Last Great Place. “Open Space” erupts in such fashion that nothing is missing: from the revved-up electric guitars to the classic pop-punk screams that move in unison with the powerful rhythms of the track, all exists vivid as can be. “Canon” brews for a while, very hot and all, as it eventually pours out a furious drum pace sizzling. “Zihuatanejo,” an ode to the band’s last EP, lets the softer side of pop-punk show with sweet hooks that beg you join in. Overall the record is a refreshing listen for all who love this brand of alt-rock worth discovering time and time again; stream “Canon” below for a punchy good time. - Rene Cobar

Quality Living soundtracks the good life on “Something Softly Caught Me”

There’s a smattering of genre-influences on Something Softly Caught Me, the new album by north Jersey indie outfit Quality Living, that really don’t make sense on paper, yet congeal over the record’s half-hour runtime to make for an energetic, incredibly fun listen. Namely, the crux of Something lies in Quality Living’s synthesis of slack jawed 90s alternative with the blue tones of late 70s-early 80s jazz rock, making for an LP that modulates between being both fast and loose or deliberate and polished. All this said, it somehow, someway works — Quality Living deliver dissociative wordplay in tandem with grooving Wurlitzer keys (“Pretty down”), and scuzzy guitar-driven ballads suddenly give way for saxophone segues (“Kite Violit”) to create a cohesive piece of work for fans of Stephen Malkmus and Walter Becker alike. Stream it below.

Love Ghost release "I'll Be "Fine"" to mark Mental Health Awareness Month

Love Ghost's success has come quick, and not even a pandemic can stop their rise or creative output. Their new single "I'll Be "Fine"" makes use of quotation marks to make a point of the song, a grunge-fueled slow jam with lyrics that make no bones about teen angst, doubt, and depression. As all of the band's members are fresh out of high school, the song fits right in their emotional wheelhouse, but it makes for a perfect example of how "Write what you know" works. "I'll Be "Fine"" makes for a perfect track to fit any bout of isolation, especially during a pandemic-related quarantine. Take a listen to "I'll Be "Fine"" below. - Will Sisskind
