Featured Stream: U.S. Royalty
 
One of the best things about working here is being able to promote bands like U.S. Royalty, who are self-releasing their debut Mirrors and thus don't have the support of a label. But they have ours because this album, which hits stores tomorrow, is one of the best indie-rock debuts to have come out recently. Songs like "Monte Carlo" and "Equestrian" don't leave your head easily, and neither does the rest of the album which you can now listen to in its entirety on their AP.net profile. Trying to describe this album any further will not do it any justice, so go take a listen if you enjoy bands like The Black Keys and Local Natives, and let your own ears be the judge. If you like the record, make sure to buy it because this band could use your support. Enjoy.

"Hollywood Hollows" is so different from the rest of the album, although almost every song sounds different, which is what makes this such a great record. Anyway, I wasn't sure how I felt about that track at first, but I love it now.

Record has its moments, forsure.

Any possibilities for a physical release? I have the Keep it Cool Ep and would love to add this to my collection.

Completely into this record. Great stuff. Backed 100%

I wish they had a physical copy. I refuse to buy digital albums.

that song reminds me of white stripes/raconteurs/dead weather/ that "jack white sound" if that makes sense.

I've been listening to this record all day based on this news post.They give me a Fleetwood mac vibe, which is one of my favorite bands of all time. Hopefully they come to boston soon, I would book them in a second.

I can't wait to come home and listen to this tonight. Band rules.

So happy AP was able to get the exclusive for this album. Such a good band, I really hope they blow up this year.
