New Music Monday (ish) – 8/7/17

A little late getting this week’s post up because of travel schedules, but Tom has four great selections for New Music Monday. Enjoy!

Nashville, TN
“Feel The Same” from Losing, out October 20 on Sub Pop

I really dug Bully’s 2015 debut album, Feels Like. The new single might push Alicia Bognanno’s vocals a bit more in front of the guitars than the Feels Like mix, but I can’t imagine I won’t love the new stuff if this is where it’s headed. Bully would sound right at home on a classic alternative station, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Neil Young
Los Angeles, CA
“Hitchhiker” from album of the same name, due Sept. 8 via Reprise Records

An unreleased, acoustic, prime era Neil Young full album recorded in 1976 with David Briggs???? Yes, Please, and Thank You.


Plaque Marks
Philadelphia, PA
“Plaque Marks” single out now on Bandcamp

Do you miss Fight Amp? Do you catch Creepoid every time they come through town? Do you wish The Powder Room would play Savannah more often? Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, this is right up your alley (and it’s a dirty, nasty alley, at that). Featuring members of all of those bands, plus Ecstatic Vision, Plaque Marks is just as gnarly and noisy as you would expect. Good stuff if you like it aggressive.


The World is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die
Connecticut, USA
“Dillon and Her Son” from Always Foreign, out September 29 on Epitaph Records

It might actually take you longer to read the band name than to listen to this song, a compact, upbeat, synth driven sort of thing. I dig it.
