girl you know it's new.

You Am I- "Friends Like You" from Convicts (Yep Roc) out January 23. huge in Australia since forever. similar: Urge Overkill, Fountains of Wayne, Paul Westerberg.

Cezzane- "I’ve Got So Much" sim- hold steady, pedro the lion.

The Black Watch- "Williamsburg" from Tatterdemalion (Stone Garden) the real test when comparing a band to the founding shoegaze bands is to have me be the judge. i don't hear any swervedriver or ride as suggested, but there is a pulse on the heyday of early '90s 120 minutes rock. around long enough to have had a release on the defunct Zero Hour, avoid getting this Black Watch confused with the other Black Watches, there's a few.

Partyline- "Zombie Terrorist" from Zombie Terrorist (Retard Disco) ex-Bratmobile . similar: capricorns, tracy + the plastics.

Pink Nasty- "BTK Blues" from Mold the Gold (self-released) similar: Jenny Lewis, Neko Case. the name Pink Nasty suggests a combination of electro dance and hip-hop. shockingly, this is heartfelt Americana.
