I adore this song. That about sums up my feelings on Twinsmith's "Said and Done" for which we're premiering the official video (below) today. It's like the band decided to check every box on the "summer anthem" list and make an irresistible tune. The feel and atmosphere of the video could not bring the song to life any more perfectly - it's youthful, fun and intriguing. Much like the single, their new album Alligator Years, is the kind of indie-rock you want to listen to continuously in this beautiful weather. Luckily, the record is now out on Saddle Creek Records, so go give that a spin after the video. Enjoy.

Last month we premiered the new Well Kept Things EP, Homegrown, which is out now via Antique Records. Today we are debuting the new video for "Great White North." The vocals on this track really remind me of what I loved about Just Surrender, so definitely give it a watch below. If you're liking the song, be sure to grab the EP.

Last night I had the pleasure of watching Bon Iver close out the inaugural Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival. During the set, the band performed not one but two new songs, which you can watch fan-shot video of in the replies. There was no formal confirmation from Justin Vernon regarding an upcoming album, however.

Maria Sherman, writing for Flavorwire:
This kind of behavior is heightened in the pop-punk and emo scenes — a world that’s typically uninviting to female musicians. Men are on stage, and young women are off it, in this realm created by boys for girls — to impress or seduce them. When you have one of the scene’s most widely accessible institutions, Warped Tour, encouraging sympathy for men who take advantage of their young, emotional female fans, it speaks volumes about where the power lies. Because of the genre’s history of guys on stage/girls in the crowd, aspirations of groupiedom remain intact for these historically disrespected female fans. This is especially sad when you consider...

It's been a busy time for Veil of Maya - they've recently released their new album Matriarch, and are about to head out on the Summer Slaughter tour, featuring headliner Arch Enemy. Today, we're excited to be giving away two autographed copies of the album to users. The album's entire track listing is inspired by strong female characters across various forms of media. To enter, state three specific titles/references that inspired the track listing (for instance, "Mikasa" was inspired by the anime Attack on Titan), and we'll pick a couple winners shortly.

Noodles, of The Offspring, spoke with The Aspen Times about the band's plans.
We want to do a record, that’s the plan. But it’s taking forever. We released this song because we felt good about it immediately. It was one of the first one or two songs we finished, so we were like, ‘If we wait on this it might be another year, year-and-a-half. Why don’t we just put it out and see what happens?

For Shy Technology, music wasn't a hobby, but a necessity. Back in December 2008, frontman David Coulson's life changed in the blink of an eye when he received a call from his mother, informing him that she had been diagnosed with stage-3 breast cancer. After quitting his job, dropping out of school, and driving all alone from Phoenix, Arizona back to his home in Villa Park, Illinois, Coulson made the decision to reconnect with old friends, start a band, and channel his struggles and stories into visceral indie rock music.

After six and a half years, two EPs and one full-length, a few lineup changes, and a successful cancer battle for Coulson's mom, Shy Technology are...

The Obsessives are a young band from the Washington, D.C. area, and probably at least partially because they are young and full of general angst, they are the type of band that puts recordings of voicemail messages in the middle of their songs. This is an essential rite of passage for many emo bands, a category The Obsessives are fairly placed into: Their new single, "Bored," which is in the replies, sounds like when you're driving to your parents' house from college and it's very, very late because you left too late, but you obviously have to stay awake and it's a matter of life or death that you don't fall asleep. The track is only two minutes and eleven seconds long, of which only...

It would be easy to sell you on Fit For Rivals by telling you that frontwoman Renee Pheonix is an inspiring feminist and activist, but I'd rather let their killer music do the talking. Head to the stream their new EP, Sugar, which drops today. The Jacksonville band melds Foo Fighters-esque rock with pop sensibilities, electronic flourishes and raspy, punk vocals reminiscent of Joan Jett and Brody Dalle.
