Herzog are a band out of Cleveland. Above is "Mad Men" the first single from their new album, Boys" out May 20th on Exit Stencil Records. Due to the Cleveland connection, everyone wants to compare the band to Cloud Nothings. This is a total disservice to Herzog. Cloud Nothings never wrote a fuzz pop song this catchy. Herzog remind me of bands like the Soft Pack or early Japandroids. "Mad Men" is so sugary that I have a cavity, but it is one of the best slacker pop songs of the new year.

Craft Spells

Craft Spells are back! After a couple quite years, Craft Spells are back with the first tune from their forthcoming sophomore album, Nausea. "Break the Angle Against the Tide" is a fantastic mix of strings, shoegaze twang guitars, and hushed lyrics. Where previous songs were tighter, "Break" less the music reflect off the broken angles. Craft Spell's album, Nausea, is out June 10 on Captured Tracks.

Summer Heart

It is warming up here in Denver, which means its time to start finding songs for spring and summer nights. The type of tunes that will make you want to ride bikes, drinks beers, and dance. I proudly present "U Got All I'm Looking 4" by Summer Heart. The song is one of those slinky, dubby pieces of bubble gum pop that sounds like a Rick James beach party.

Paws have posted a new song, "Tongues", the first single from forthcomming sophomore album, Youth Culture Forever. Great to hear that Paws have kept the core of their sound, but enhanced it slightly. Really looking forward to hearing it.
