The Saturday Alternative: 09-19-15

sat alt 091915

We kicked things off this week with a killer new song from Earl Burrows, the project of Mark Watrous, who is a former touring member of The Shins and The Raconteurs. We heard some dreamy new music from CHROMATICS, Emilie & Ogden, and Baltimore’s own Thrushes. We rocked out with brand new tracks from The…

In The Mix: Fast Romantics


        Toronto-based band Fast Romantics have a bona fide hit on their hands with “Julia.” This song draws you in from the very first notes, a high-energy dose of well-polished power pop that might have you thinking Nick Lowe circa 1979.  For the music video, they edited themselves into some footage from…

The Saturday Alternative: 09-12-15


This week on The Saturday Alternative, we started things off by getting grungy with Greys, a post-punk band out of Toronto. We heard new music from Bassh, a new band made up of members of Matrimony and Band of Horses. Their sound is a nice blend of soaring synth-pop and sprawling americana. We did a…

In The Mix: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats


  If you were watching the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon back in early August, you might have caught Nathaniel Rateliff and his band The Night Sweats making their television debut and pouring it all out on stage during a performance of a song called “S.O.B.” That performance got a lot of people talking (including…

In The Mix: Pure Bathing Culture


  Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman have been making music together for several years. They played with Andy Cabic in the band Vetiver for a while where they began to connect musically before going on to play shows as Pure Bathing Culture. They got a lot of attention back in 2013 with the release of…

In The Mix: Gospel Machine


  Minneapolis quintet Gospel Machine describe themselves as a “garage gospel” band. Their music brings to mind some of the greats, like Otis Redding and Sharon Jones, and it’s that garage-grit and attitude, along with frontwoman Jayanthi Kyle’s stunning vocals, that make their sound so authentic. We’ve taken notice here at WTMD, and we think…

In The Mix: Boy & Bear

limit of love

  We’ve been fans of Aussie band Boy and Bear since 2011, when we first heard their smooth and infectious, emotionally driven indie-folk rock. Their debut album, Moonfire, swept the ARIA Awards that year, winning them five awards out of seven nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Group. Their song “Feeding Line” was…

The Saturday Alternative: Playlist 08-22-15


 This week on The Saturday Alternative, we dove right in with a wildly impressive new song from Diane Coffee, the solo project of Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming. We hit the dance floor with exciting new music from Disclosure, who are set to release their highly anticipated followup to 2013’s Settle, and we got moving to a…

In The Mix: Them Vibes


The secret’s out on Nashville five-piece Them Vibes. Since forming a couple years ago, they’ve been tearing up the Nashville and Austin underground with their raw and sweaty rock’n’roll and energetic live shows. Now, with the gritty sway and swagger of their new single “Mamma’s Got A Secret,” they seem ready to take over the…

In The Mix: Rayland Baxter


If you had to neatly file away the music of singer-songwriter Rayland Baxter, the “Americana” folder would be a suitable place. That being said, there is something very unique about his sound that is helping to bring him fans of all kinds; from the roots and country purists, to the hip indie rockers. He recently…
