The Spinto Band hail from the land of pop refrains and songs of love and loss, set to an upbeat tune. Buffetlibre hail from a land of all-night dance parties (we think it’s call Spain). We don’t need to tell you that when the two got together it was a romance for the ages. Oh heck, we will tell you—you should probably take a listen to this hot off the presses “Leave Yourself Alone” remix. The track is from the shiny new Spinto Band album Shy Pursuit, out now." Listen now at Under The Radar.

The band's sparse basement pop melodies written by lead singer Leah Diehl are giving us misty water-colored memories of Rilo Kiley's Saddle Creek days. Which is really, really promising and we can't wait to hear the rest of their debut The Blonde out August 28th." Listen on Nylon here.

Sea of Bees — sings out, the music cuts through the room like a knife. The Sacramento folk-pop singer barely needed to raise her voice to command attention at the Echo on Wednesday night. A simple coo and a gentle strum on her guitar quickly drew the crowd to her endearing odes to love." Read on at Buzzbands.la
"Few solo artists can mesmerize a room the way Kaia Wilson does. There’s no one reason for this. Despite making music for the past two decades, Wilson retains a nervous energy onstage that endears her to audiences. She’s also kind of a heartthrob. And, perhaps most important, even as the ex-Team Dreschie’s songs grow more refined and mature—something Two Adult Women in Love evidences—Wilson keeps her heart on her sleeve..."

Wooden Wand; most recently, his album Briarwood got the deluxe reissue treatment from Fire Records. And it turns out that the guy’s a prodigious reader, able to smartly discuss musical histories and work from Barry Hannah and William Gass in equal measure." Continue reading on Vol.1 Brooklyn.

The Spinto Band last month who are fresh off the May 1 release of their self-produced album Shy Pursuit. This was the last night of a four night residency for the Delaware band and they showed a remarkable range of sounds including heavy guitar solos, steady synthesizers, and an army of kazoos. For fifty minutes the band played a great set of infectious indie-folk with most of the songs coming from their new album Shy Pursuit and from 2005′s Nice and Nicely Done." Keep reading and listen to their set over on nyctaper.

The Butchies and Team Dresch. If I write a song it either is or isn’t going to be a band song. Some of these new ones on the record I heard as a full band, and some I knew were just guitar and vocals. I had collaborators on my solo record though—Jody (Bleyle) and Marci (Martinez) from Team Dresch joined and they wrote their own parts. There were also strings, and the people who played those wrote their own parts, as well. All of these songs come from the same place in me." Read the complete Interview with Kaia on Sadie here.
