Nevergreeens – It’s Already Paradise EP
RIYL: M83. Album Leaf, Eluvium
Local chillwave producer continues to drop cinematic, instrumental scores just begging to soundtrack a minimal, contemplative indie flick.

RIYL: Hum, Besnard Lakes, Interpol
Farewell album from former Vox Humana members, the spacey post-rock outfit closes up shop with eight tracks of booming shoegaze riffs and soaring vocals.

RIYL: Front Bottoms, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Decemberists
Former front man to high school band, Victory For Poland, Tylor Colby released his first full-length post-graduation via LIPS Records.
