Down the Lees: A Cynical Age – track of the day

Today’s track of the day is ‘A Cynical Age’ by Belgium-based indierockers Down the Lees – driven by Canadian Laura Lee. Instantly engaging riff-driven gorgeousness – if you love LIINES and The Empty Page, crank this up to 11 and settle in.

This single is taken from forthcoming album due out in September, and recorded and mixed by the legendary Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago.

Ava Heatley: Shitty Tattoo – track of the day

Our track of the day today is ‘Shitty Tattoo’ from New York’s Ava Heatley. The single is released today and it’s a flipping gorgeous indierock ballad for disaffected youth.

As Ava puts it, “To me, songwriting is overreacting. It’s refusing to move on. It’s holding a grudge. It’s framing and illuminating the thoughts you get embarrassed you had ten minutes after thinking them. It’s taking moments that you’d otherwise let go and putting them in print, forever immortalizing them. It’s melodramatic.”

Ava will be playing a single release show for Shitty Tattoo at New York City’s The Bitter End on July 6th.

Girlcrush: s/t – track of the day

Today’s track of the day is your new themetune/earworm/getting ready song – Girlcrush by Girlcrush, a Danish indie-queer-pop trio. They say:

‘“girlcrush” is basically a declaration of love. Queer love- and identity is often met with skepticism and even condemnation – and queerness feels like a fight against the world it is a part of. This fight for being accepted for who you are, and the right to be yourself, is a central part of the girlcrush project.’
