I was thinking out loud to myself a few weeks ago, wondering if I Monster was planning on releasing new music any time soon. So I Googled ’em and found out that they do indeed have a new album — Swarf — and it’s availible to stream/download off Bandcamp. The best way I can describe I Monster, a duo from the UK comprised of producers Dean Honer and Jarrod Gosling, is if The Beatles and The Beach Boys made music in modern times on shrooms and/or acid. Or, you can allow the twosome to spell out their sound for your themselves — “left field psychedelic, new wave, electronic pop, sort of“. This is totally going to be my summer 2013 soundtrack:

Some songs are just destined to become memorable cinematic moments, as their words establish a landscape that goes far beyond the circumference of your headphones. And I have a feeling that up-and-coming indie band Sunshine will one day be featured in a Sofia Coppola movie and/or a quirky indie flick that features Chloe Sevigny.
Consisting of five notable Vancouver musicians, including DJ Trevor Risk (Come Friday & Ice Cream Social), Sunshine creates aggressive dream-pop that makes you lust after an early winter romance, preferably with a dude that isn’t still married.
Their debut LP isn’t out until February 26th, but you can check out a few songs via their bandcamp now.

“Five Seconds” is the first single off of Twin Shadow’s new album titled “Confess” which will be out on July 9th on 4AD. Frontman George Lewis Jr. continues down a similar path as his previous work, with the slick New Wave grooves still pulsing on this new single.

I first came across COOLRUNNINGS a while back, when a dude with a hamburger tattoo told me to check out they’re recently released Babes Forever EP. I was immediately intrigued by the album artwork, which features a photograph from Hustler Magazine circa 1989.
After my initial intrigue for this photos awesomeness had passed, it didn’t take me long to fall for there unique sound. The four-piece band that originally hails from Knoxville, beautifully mixes together new wave and psychadelia with the right amount vulgarity.
Lucky for me, the band just dropped “Spirit of the High”. It’s four minutes of pure sunny enjoyment. And while you might not notice it at first, the cymbals were actually recorded using a handled steak knife as a drum stick. Pretty badass if you ask me. Check it out below.

From California. Circa 81′.
The lyrics of Janitor were derived from a real-life conversation between two band members conversing in a loud room when they first met.
“She asked me what I did for a living. I said “I’m a Janitor” and she thought I said “Oh my genitals”. Frank overheard this and wrote the song.”

I feel embarrassed that I’ve completely ignored this song for years. Things just get lost in the shuffle.
It reaches out and pulls you in every time. Amazing.
