The Mary Onettes
The Mary Onettes’ critically acclaimed debut was described as the perfect mix between A-ha and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Now they are back with a grandiose new album. Imagine a Swedish equivalent of The National on a diet of speed, Planet Earth DVDs, and 80’s guitar pop singles and you’ll have a vague idea of how amazing this is. “At their best, the band positively nailed the bruised romanticism and exquisite melancholy that marked a certain strain of that decade’s [80s] best pop.” — Pitchfork
“Formed in 2004, six-piece San Francisco band Magic Bullets draw from a shared love of post-punk/1980s alt-rock bands such as Orange Juice, the Sound, the Feelies, and Talking Heads.” — AllMusic.com
Here Come the Saviours
Guitar noise-pop from ex-members of the Otherside, Stratford 4, and the Tail.
