Netherland band TESSEL released a new lofi beach pop single and music video, Family Time. This is a fun upbeat song, complete with hand claps, vocal slap backs. This is their fourth single, and first in two years. This really is one of hooks.

Major Murphy – Access (single)

Major Murphy released their second single from Access. This song is titled In the Meantime, bringing more fuzzy shoegaze and tight harmonies. Earlier this week, members of the band backed Waxahatchee on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Can’t wait for you to hear this Major Murphy album!

Dead Rituals is working on new song, but don’t miss this video of a stripped down video of him performing an acoustic version of When the Lights are Out. He recorded this in a Brooklynn loft’s stairwell in 2016, capturing the natural reverb. It’s a really nice video and version.
