Troubled and Done
These teenage tearaways are leading members in a brand new wave of Atlanta, Georgia-based garage punk bands.
We Were Children
Excellent Bowie and Bolan inspired pop rock'n'roll. Huge verses give way to a softly anthemic, nostalgic chorus.
Jemma Pixie Hixon
Behind Blue Eyes
Housebound for two years due to agoraphobia, Hixon's renditions of current and classic chart hits are attracting a lot of attention.
Honour Before Glory
Broken Pictures #1
A minimalist soundscape from the former ¡Forward Russia! guitarist Whiskas. What it lacks in innovation it more than makes up for in genre-defying bravery.
Walk the Moon
This kind of epic, Killers-esque indie may be half a decade late, but is nevertheless infectious and ready for the mainstream.
Polaris at Noon
The super-slick rhythms and schoolyard melodies shouldn't work, but this one-man project actually sounds like early Chromeo.
Keep Shelly in Athens
Song to Cheer You Up
Reverb-drenched guitars and hazy synths make this track a summer playlist candidate.
Thee Oh Sees
I Need Seed
Scratchy blues-based garage rock, peppered with unsubtle sexual innuendo.
Dev Hynes's latest project is the kind of abrasive electro-punk hybrid he does so well.
