New York indie trio The Beets is a hot topic in the music blogosphere with the release of a new track from upcoming album Let the Poison Out. London-born musician Elena Tonra, whose stage name is Daughter, also claims a top spot in The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart on September 23.
The Beets, said to "inhabit the rawer end of the garage rock spectrum" (
Mad Mackerel), recently signed to the label Hardly Art and are expected to release their third studio album on October 24. "Perhaps the vocals aren't as pristine as similarly minded bands, but that doesn't apply [to] the great melodies the band has crafted over the last several years," reviews blogger
Austin Town Hall. The group recently dropped the track "Doing As I Do" from the new album.
Daughter recently released the first single, "Love," off of her forthcoming The Wild Youth EP, set for a November 21 release. "A few months ago I was enamored with the His Young Heart EP, and now I'm looking forward to hearing even more songs that stem from a vicious heartbreak," writes blogger New Music Collaborative.
