The Right Sound for the Right Price



CHVRCHES – “Empty Threat”

We’ve got another new one from Glasgow sensation CHVRCHES off of their latest album, Every Open Eye. This one is called “Empty Threat”.

Modern Space – “Pen To Paper”

They’ve only existed for a year, don’t even have their debut album out yet, and they have already opened for Lights, Chris Baio, and Vaccines. Listen to this and it’ll be stuck in your head all day!

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – “Look It Here”

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have come from Denver to take over the world! They played a sold out show at the Phoenix this week – you already know all the words to S.O.B., so now get this: “Look It Hear”.

Brave Shores – “Dancing Under Water”

Toronto’s Brave Shores keep on rising – playing with Wolf Alice at the Phoenix this week. They’ve also just released a video series called Half Live, where they play their songs live … and then add stuff to those performances. So it’s half … live. You get it.

Kurt Vile – “Dust Bunnies”

Got a music lover on your holiday gift list? Get them the latest Kurt Vile album, B’lieve I’m Goin Down. It’s the kind of album you can throw on for a Saturday afternoon, but keep playing into a Saturday night! The music is a treat – it’s Vile’s lyrics that really make him stand out.
