"Xoxo" - Wand
Gorgeous guitar pop thing, the way Thom and co used to.
"Terminal Island" - Jelly Boy
A beautiful slice of something that mercifully fades out just before it goes “full country”.
"Freedom" - Delicate Steve
Putting the “mental” in “crunchpop-guitar-instrumental”.
"UFOF" - Big Thief
A gentle noisefolk lament.
"Black Light" - The Dream Syndicate
Tiny organ loop FTW.
"Work" - Foxygen
Lo-spec glamour electro.
"The Moon Drips" - Noctorum
Come for the tex-mex twang Bigsby and horns, stay for the harpsichord arps.
