Sounding a lot like the ’90s even though its members might not even be old enough to remember the ’90s, MILLY‘s “Denial” grabbed my attention on first listen. The lead single from the LA band’s forthcoming Wish Goes On EP certainly hits that nostalgic sweet spot despite coming from a relatively young band with just one EP to their name so far.

Why am I focusing on the band’s age? Who knows? Maybe I’m just in denial myself about getting old …

MILLY’s Wish Goes On EP is out April 9th via Dangerbird Records.

I’ve been big fan of Ottawa’s Wooden Stars since discovering them back in the day and ever since then I’ve kept an eye on Michael Feuerstack‘s career in its various incarnations. So of course, I was pleased to see that he’s got a new album on the horizon.

That album, Harmonize The Moon, is out Friday, March 19th via Forward Music Group. Check out Feuerstack’s latest single “Time To Burn” below.

SXSW Song Of The Day: Drinking Boys and Girls Choir – Gonna Tell You

Posted on by Paul in Song of the Day, South By Southwest | Leave a comment

Earlier this week, SXSW announced the first batch of bands for this year’s fully online edition of the festival. It will be quite different this year and probably a little bit weird not being there in person, but after the cancellation of last year’s SXSW, it’s nice to see that the festival is happening in some form for 2021 and there will surely still be some cool stuff to see there regardless.

Among the bands we’re looking forward to is Daegu-based band Drinking Boys and Girls Choir, who first caught our attention during SXSW 2019. Sure, the band’s name and song titles such as “National Police Shit” and “Keep Drinking!!!” were what initially made us pay attention, but the music itself was what kept our attention – short and sweet blasts of melodic skatepunk-inspired tunes that are almost over before you’ve even had a chance to take it in. But that’s the best part – you can just listen to the songs all over again.

The band’s latest, “Gonna Tell You,” was written for a Korean short film, which is described thusly in the film synopsis:”Ji-won Sung receives a love confession in public from Ji-won Han, of the same school and the same name. What answer will Seong Ji-won give?” Check it out below.

“Gonna Tell You” is out now via Damnably Records, who also have several other bands slated for this year’s SXSW, including Grrl Gand, Hazy Sour Cherry, and Say Sue Me.

You know what? Shoegaze almost rhymes with Tuesdays. And today being Tuesday, I figure that’s a good enough excuse to share “Title Sequence,” the latest single from Kaz Mirblouk’s recently released album Careless By Contrast. Check it out below.
