The Right Sound for the Right Price


The Temper Trap – “Fall Together”

Temper Trap, where have you been?! We haven’t heard much from the Australian band in about four years but now they’re back. The new Temper Trap album drops in June under the title Thick As Thieves.

Parquet Courts – “Berlin Got Blurry”

You may have heard about New York City band Parquet Courts when they got a bunch of buzz for their 2014 album Sunbathing Animal, and they were just in town last week. They put out an experimental record in between that one and their latest, it’s called Human Performance and dropped earlier this month.

Yeasayer – “Silly Me”

Brooklyn’s Yeasayer released their latest album Amen & Goodbye at the beginning of the month and it brings back their big, lush, bounding sound. You have to check out this track!

July Talk – “Push and Pull”

New music from July Talk, finally! After taking the country by storm with their self-titled debut album, the sophomore one is coming soon- but for now, you have this.

EL VY – “Need A Friend”

A while back when National frontman Matt Berninger said there were no plans for a new album from that band this year, you didn’t have to be sad… because he was still giving you a bunch of new tunes in the form of EL VY. “Need a Friend” is the latest from their album Return To The Moon.
