"Television Eyes" by Steady Sun (strreaming below) is one of those songs that only takes a few seconds to keep you hooked. It’s only one of many gently persuading psychedelic tracks on the NYC-based band’s June 2017 remarkable album "Indifferent World."

In his debut single "Light and Dark," Oliver Ignatius taps into an unlikely but interesting combination of sounds: crunchy guitar solos, soaring synths, a blasting horn section, and dreamy laid-back, Queen-esque vocals. We can’t tell you why it works, exactly, but it does. Perhaps it’s Ignatius’ immaculate grasp of melody and placement of harmonies throughout that weaves ...

Inspired by his 12 years in NYC, Spirit Plate frontman Brian Russ found inspiration for the the passion project Youth Moose—the psych rock band’s sophomore album. Recorded in Russ’ home studio, the LP features tracks presented as a reflection of the New York experience, based on everything from street art to architecture. This record is about finding clarity in the chaos (a feeling any New Yorker can relate to) all while experimenting with new sounds and content. In the single “Daily News Headline” (streaming below) the group tackles themes of political and civil unrest, overlaying a triumphant mashup of gritty guitar arrangements and a lively horn section. The band recently also unveiled the video for second single ‘All Day Long.’ – Lilly Milman
