Lately – Wet

A stunning return to form for a group once destined for indie pop greatness, “Lately” is the definitive song by Brooklyn group Wet. This is easily their best song since 2014’s “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl.” After a disappointing debut LP and several recent singles,…

Tonight – Holiday Mountain

From here in Austin, Texas rises Holiday Mountain, an electronic duo with a distinct sound not far removed from the likes of Santigold and MGMT. Their new album Miles and Miles is a huge step forward for the group and the song “Tonight” might be…
