Artist Intro: Boxed Wine

by Witler Categories: indie, indie rock, Witler |  

If Surfer Blood got really drunk and had a one-night stand with the Libertines and the Libertines got knocked up that mangy bastard child would be Jersey-based indie punk rock outfit Boxed Wine. Or at least that’s the first thing that comes to mind while listening to their debut EP. The catchy riffs and pop beats are certainly reminiscent of the aforementioned English rock mother and the nasally vocals kinda sorta similar to the Florida beach rock father. Their simply composed garage beats give them a classic indie rock edge. No fluff and few flourishes. I can dig it. Five short tracks long, the EP is lighthearted, fun and carefree.

Introducing Atlas Genius

by Witler Categories: indie, indie rock, Witler |  

Indie rock quartet Atlas Genius are three Australian brothers and an English dude. They just released their debut EP in the US this summer. Three delicious tracks long, Through the Glass is sure to earn them an international following. Its laid back guitar driven anthems remind me of the stuff everyone knows and loves from the late ’90s-early 2000s and it’s no surprise either, considering they’ve cited their main influences to be The Police, Beck and Death Cab For Cutie. Turn it on and turn it up, these guys are bound to reach your favorites list.

“State Hospital” by Frightened Rabbit

by Witler Categories: indie rock, Witler |  

Scottish indie rokkers Frightened Rabbit, have released the video for the title track of their upcoming EP “State Hospital.” The video tells a rather depressing story and while the song isn’t exactly oozing with sunshine, there is something refreshing and optimistic about it. That could have to do with the repetition of “All is not lost” at the end. See what you think.

“I Dunno” by Bass Drum of Death

Somehow this song managed to slip by me unnoticed but it’s a choon^98572948735028374. I love it.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, folks. Be Safe.

#throwbackthursday: “A Series of Sneaks” by Spoon

by Witler Categories: #throwbackthursday, indie, indie rock, Witler |  

It could be completely inappropriate to toss Spoon in the “throwback” category because they were a huge game changer on the indie front and as far as I’m concerned, they are timeless. They are an absolute essential; I still find a way to sneak a Spoon song onto most CDs I make even now. Truth be told, I’ll probably raise my kids on their music. Seven really strong albums, I find it pretty difficult to argue with anything they’ve released. Their 1998 release “A Series of Sneaks” makes its way onto our throwback post today because somehow this album, in my opinion, managed to go by relatively unnoticed, which is odd to me because it is genius. It shouldn’t have been so easy to overlook or to forget about. Regardless of where this album stands in your heart or if you’ve even heard of it all, it is one that should be recalled. Here’s to old memories and new ones and everything in between.
