Melted Ice Cream – Beach Love

Melted Ice Cream’s Beach Love (2019) LP has been my go-to comfort album lately. It’s a surf dream-pop album about falling in love in the summer. If you haven’t noticed by my last few posts, that’s been the vibe lately (lol).  You honestly can’t go wrong with any track on this album. They’re all great […]

Los Espookys

A few weeks ago, Eunice unexpectedly sent me a playlist. Okay, I shouldn’t make it sound dramatic; she sends me music quite often, but it’s usually not in the form of a playlist. This particular playlist she sent was named Los Espookys – Soundtrack. I was instantly intrigued. The playlist created by indicemx consists of […]

Beach Weekend – Hate Drugs

Last Friday, Hate Drugs released a remastered version of their Beach Weekend EP (2016) to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The re-release includes all three original tracks and a bonus song, Without You.  If you’ve heard the original EP, you know that it perfectly encompasses this feeling of nostalgia. The songs create a sense of being […]

Super Besse – Un Rêve

Super Besse is a post-punk turned coldwave duo from Minsk, Belarus. With their last album Un Rêve (2020), Maksim Kulsha and Aleksandr Sinica combined their original post-punk sound with techno and electronic beats. The shift in sound reflects their interest in electronic music that came before the album’s development. Each song on the album was […]

Aurora Boreal

Earlier this month, Señor Kino from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, released their third full-length album Aurora Boreal. The album comes with great anticipation as it was meant to be released more than a year ago but was put on hold because of the pandemic.  With this LP, Señor Kino isn’t completely moving away from their surf-punk […]

Girls Bite Harder

I’ve been on a Soma Cake kick for almost two weeks now. I came across their discography during my long search for Latine/x post-punk bands. Though I found many great bands along the way (many of which will make their way onto the blog at some point) Soma Cake is the band that really stuck […]

Yikes! – Silver Sphere

Yikes! by Silver Sphere’s an album about breaking your own heart – something we might all be guilty of. Sophie Cates, also known as Silver Sphere, sings about the inability to walk away from someone that just isn’t that into you. My favorite songs off of the album are “drinking games”, “boys r dumb! duh!”, […]

The Best D*mn Thing

I did that Spotify thing where it exposes your sh*t music taste and mental state. According to Spotify, “Canadian Pop” is what sets me apart from everyone else. What is Canadian pop exactly? I’m going to go ahead and assume it’s Avril Lavigne since that’s the only Canadian I obsessively listened to at the beginning […]
