Cookie — “Take It Slow” (Song)
RIYL: Japandroids, Built to Spill, Newish Star
The follow up single to the duo’s early 2015 EP, Tell it to the Fudge, “Take It Slow” is a curt and fast paced indie rock tune with shouty, anthemic vocals. The basement super-pair is made up of members of Newish Star, Dream Journal, Softlines, and Mapmaker.
Sixties Future — “Skeleton” (Song)
RIYL: Teddybears, The National
Featuring the former bass player of Sleepy Hahas, Sixties Future premiered its first two singles last week. The stand out track of the two, “Skeleton,” features bassy vocals, retro organs, and a very “Heroes”-like opening melody.
The experimental drum duo delivered an acoustic performance of “Murdered by Ghouls,” captured on tape within the grain elevators at Silo City. The acoustically rich silos prove to be the perfect complement to the pair’s synchronized tribal beat downs.
