The New Twang Sampler


Kicking the week off with another sampler. Quite a few pretty decent power pop tunes have caught my ear lately and the mix features a number of these supplemented by indiepop & dreampop. As ever enjoy!

Here is the Playlist:

Track Listing:

Grushenka – Nacen en Primavera

Taken from the band’s forthcoming new album and their first in over five years. Out now via El Genio Equivocado.

Petite League – Floating Blue

The latest song (edit. not any more it isn’t!) from New York’s Petite League. Where sixties pop meets Elephant 6.

Shoulder Season – Dominoes

A slice of punk-pop/power pop from Nova Scotia’s Shoulder Season.

The Reds, Pinks & Purples – Life in the Void

The latest song from Glen Donaldson and what now sounds like a full band.

Best Bets – King Cnut

The latest, and fourth single, to be taken from the NZ power pop outfit Best Bets forthcoming debut album On An Unhistoric Night due for release at the end of the month.

Romero – Talk About It

The opening track from the Melbourne based Romero’s debut album Turn It On! Punk inspired indie rock/power pop. The album is out now on Feel It Records.

Stomp Talk Modstone – What Should I Do?

Taken from the new compilation Mew which is out now digitally via the band.

The Hazmats – Empty Rooms

Mixing punk, C86 and post-punk London’s The Hazmats have delivered a single that a few blogs have been raving about and it’s hard not to hear why. Pre-order on 7″ via Static Shock Records.

The Linda Lindas – Talking To Myself

Punk infused power pop, taken from the new album Growing Up which is out now on Epitaph.

Sungaze – New Twang

Dreampop/shoegaze with a hint of the 1960s and the sound of road trips thrown in. Not far removed from what The Still Corners have been doing recently.
