FOXING (USA – Triple Crown Records)
If you’ve ever looked at an old document and noticed brown spots on it, what you are seeing are signs of aging. It’s not exactly clear what specifically causes them, but one day, the page will completely brown over and be no more. This is called foxing. A group of St. Louis musicians took this idea and turned it into a band. “From the conception of the band, we realized: we’re not gonna be around forever,” says Foxing singer Conor Murphy. Foxing’s forthright lyrical honesty paired with their stunning orchestral sound quickly started earning them devoted fans, some of whom have been so emotionally moved that they’ve openly wept at the band’s live shows.
FOG LAKE (CA – Orchidtapes)
Aaron Powell (Born 1993) is better known by his lo-fi singer songwriter moniker Fog Lake where he creates music that’s been best described as “a complex collage of nebulous angst and heartfelt nostalgia”.Born and raised on the island province of Newfoundland, he’s lived his life in relative isolation writing and recording a total of six releases in four years including his two most current LP’s Virgo Indigo (2014) & Victoria Park (2015) both being released by Brooklyn based tape label Orchid Tapes (Foxes In Fiction, Alex G, Teen Suicide). Aaron’s relentless and prolific approach has garnered worldwide critical acclaim receiving coverage on The FADER, DIY Magazine, Noisey, Tiny Mixtapes, The 405, BBC, CBC, Earmilk, Chart Attack, Exclaim! and many others.
GET OFF MY SHOES (BE – Evil Pinguin Records)
Loaded with catchy melodies and sparkly riffs that combine influences from bands such as Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club and Foals, Belgian quintet GET OFF MY SHOES create their own sound by mixing synth-laden pop with off-the-hook rock. A sonic equivalent of the sun peeking through the clouds, if you want an overly poetic description. Non-pretentious indie with depth, if you need a classification.
