Barrie – “Dig”

Barrie, the musical project of Barrie Lindsay, has always specialized in crisp metropolitan indie-pop. Both on stage and on record, the band has carved out a distinct stylistic identity, one adjacent to the likes of Yumi Zouma and Alvvays, like a dreamier spin on Fleetwood Mac. On her new single, she tweaks that identity somewhat.

Spirit Was – “I Saw The Wheel”

Since LVL UP a few years ago, the band’s three main songwriters have all dedicated themselves to their own projects: Dave Benton, who just announced a new Trace Mountains album; Mike Caridi with the Glow; and Nick Corbo, who heads up the band Spirit Was, which gets its name from a LVL UP song. Corbo was responsible for some of the heaviest moments in his old band’s discography and he continues digging into muddy and abrasive textures on Heaven’s Just A Cloud, Spirit Was’ debut album.

This column didn't run last week because I had to go deal with a family emergency. (If you've got a potentially dangerous dog, take the proper fucking precautions, people.)

Big Ups – “National Parks” Video

When Big Ups released "National Parks" earlier this year, I wrote a short but impassioned screed about how much this band means to me and why this single in particular gives me that happy/sad feeling that only expertly crafted, thoughtful lyrics give you. This is a song about lead singer Joe Galarraga's mom, but … More »
