The Uh-Huhs – Wrong Young Lady (Official Music Video)

Little Rock, Arkansas is home to the lo-fi indie garage rock act The Uh Huhs, a group of four friends channelling the fuzzy energy of garage rock and punk, as they create songs about what they know best: “being young and dumb and confused by love, sex, and stuff like that”. Their latest single “Wrong Young Lady” captures the surf-rock dynamic with their own punchy style, as they bring up their young-dumb-confused-by-love habits. Between the catchy hooks, toe-tapping, head-banging rhythms, and smooth-meets-growl vocals, The Uh Huhs put the worries behind them as best…

In No Particular Order – August 12, 2016

Hopefully the two and a half months in-between features hasn’t caused any readers some financial, emotional, or musical distress. But then again, if you were betting money, had some form of emotional attachment to the weekly INPO being published, or decided to go not listen to any music until now, then maybe my tardiness is not the problem… (and hey, at least I’m not pulling a Frank Ocean). Although I was half hoping someone would notice there had been a lack of well-written, weekly summaries selecting some of the best…

Earth Heart – Demons

From the small town of Allston, Masschesuchets comes the big, bashing sound of garage rock trio Earth Heart. Although no strangers to the local live music scene, Earth Heart recently headed to the studio to record their debut full-length record Homesick, which is out August 5th. Formed back in 2013 after vocalist/guitarist Katie Coriander met drummer Matt Axten at a cafe in Cambridge, MA, in search of a drummer to accompany her during her solo performance the next evening. Since then, the pair along with bassist Natan Keyes have self-released five EPs and countless shows. Adding Homesick to…

Weaves – Weaves

The concept of synergy is when the creation of a whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and if you think about it, the idea is a fascinating phenomenon. You’d expect 1 and 1 to make 2, but with synergy, that’s not always true; what if instead of adding together, they realize they are more valuable as two “ones” together, and decide to fuse into “11”. Of course, it is more complex than just pushing two numbers together, but in any case, let’s take Toronto noise-pop band Weaves for example.…

FIDLAR – Punks (Official Music Video)

Los Angeles noise-punks FIDLAR released their loudmouth, electrifying sophomore album Too late last year, and have teamed up with collaborators and artists from Oklahoma City – and more specifically, The Flaming Lips art space (a.k.a The Womb) for their latest music video. Giving the hard-hitting noise-punk tune “Punks” a visual aid from the facilities of art/music gurus The Flaming Lips can only mean one thing: it’s going to be shocking, unique, and downright engaging. Depicting a dystopian, high-end underground party gone wrong, the new video slams its way in similar pace to the track’s aggressive…

Spring King – The Summer (Official Music Video)

(If you like: Houndmouth, Sun Club, The Cribs)  Manchester indie rock group Spring King are just the kind of high-energy, laissez-faire garage rock pop the summer months long for. And just as the slick, laid-back sound of Houndmouth’s “Sedona” was the track of easy-going nights and lay-in-the-grass afternoons last year, Spring King’s “The Summer” will be the case for 2016. Aptly named, “The Summer” is a smooth, Brit-pop tune that channels the likes of The Cribs, Black Lips, and the rebellious energy of The Libertines thrown together with a ’70s-pop chorus…

(If you like: Beach Fossils, Quarterbacks, Weaves)  Halifax four-piece Heaven For Real is lead by twin brothers Mark and Scott Grundy, have been preparing their sound and songwriting skills along with their two pals Cheryl Hann and Nathan Doucet since 2012. Spending time sculpting away tunes from their basements and local studio, Heaven For Real are excited to release their latest album Kill Your Memory on July 15th. From the upcoming album comes lead single “Subliminal”, blending together their off-beat, garage rock sound with the colourful, spontaneity of lo-fi pop. The mismatched track…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Fossil Cliffs – Girl Don’t Tell Me (Beach Boys Cover)

(If you like: Alvvays, Black Lips, Ty Segall)  Originally formed as the solo project of Halifax musician Mike D’Eon (Kuato) back in 2014, indie rock group Fossil Cliffs has since expanded to include a handful of new members: Julia Weir (Quiet Parade), Trevor Murphy (Quiet Parade/Dance Movie), and Matt Gorman – all of which are tied to the indie label Acadian Embassy. Fast forward to 2016, and D’Eon and his team are set to release a full length Enter The Realm on June 10th. And as you may have heard, 2016 is the 50th…

Weaves – One More (Official Music Video)

(If you like: Spiral Beach, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Pixies)  Toronto lo-fi rock pop quartet Weaves dropped the energy bomb of a hit “One More” back in March, and the equally absorbing track “Candy” earlier last month. Set to release their debut album June 17th, the indie rock world patiently awaits the completing pieces of their jagged puzzle of infectious pop melody, unwashed garage distortion, and uncontainable energy. To help bring the date closer, Weaves have shared the new music video for their lead single “One More”. Filmed by guitarist Morgan…

Beauts – Covers (Official Music Video)

(If you like: Walrus, The Dodos, We Are Scientists)  Halifax indie rock five-piece Beauts introduced their lo-fi, kick-back style with their debut hit single “After All” last May, and since then have been touring and writing new material for their upcoming sophomore Waves/Wash EP out June 10th. From the new release comes “Covers”, the band’s latest single and hit. Along with an anchoring dance-punk bass line, fuzzy guitar distortion back frontman Jeff Lawton’s raw, post-punk-esuqe vocals for a slow-burning, dance floor hit that grows and grows until it implodes on itself into a groovy,…
