Walk Alone- TSOL (1982)
premiere: Indoor Voices - Say (feat. Maja Thunberg)I got a listen to some of the new songs from upcoming Auratic EP and Jonathan Relph wanted to send this new track to the world that they made with the singer from Star Horse.He tells me they’ve worked with “probably one of my favourite bands right now. The first time I heard them I was blown away by Maja’s voice. I got in touch with them and in time, asked her to contribute a vocal to one of the songs. A few weeks ago I was messaging with Maja (on a common mobile phone messaging app) and said almost jokingly that we should make a video for “Say”. A few hours later, clips started arriving in the app and I started editing them together. Once we realized that it was going to actually look kind of cool, she sent me higher quality clips as the originals had been heavily compressed in said app.”

"Romance and Adventure" by Allo Darlin’ // We Come From the Same Place (Out October, 2014 via Slumberland)
This October sees the return of the London based indie poppers Allo Darlin’ who will release their new LP, We Come From the Same Place through the always reliable Slumberland Records. In the two years since the band last dropped some of their lovely, sophisticated pop gems, the band has underwent some life changes (marriage, moving, success), and in turn have developed a more mature, nuanced sound. The first single is the jangle pop beauty, “Romance and Adventure”, which carries a propulsive energy that serves the tracks’ breathless romanticism well. Of course, fans of the band’s earlier material won’t be left out in the cold, as the band’s infectious melodies and dreamy pop production are still front and center. Highly recommended for fans of Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and El Perro del Mar.
