While on tour to promote their new release Be One of Us and Hear No Noise in May of last year, Metavari captured the recordings for a beautiful new EP titled Loosen The Bands. The band is currently preparing for a new tour that kicks off next week, so we figured it would be the perfect time to stream the new EP to give you an idea for what's in store if you attend one of these shows. If you enjoy bands like The Album Leaf, then do not miss out on these guys. Their album last year was easily one of the best in the genre, so go check out this stream on their AP.net profile and don't forget to purchase it after.

It came out last week, but if you still haven’t listened we have Washington Square Park’s self-titled streaming on their AP.net profile. This unsigned New Jersey band has already built up quite the following and their debut is a catchy record that is drawing comparisons to The Movielife. If you like it, you can pick it up here. And if you need more convincing, check out Thomas Nassiff’s recent review.
Deborah Remus on 06/30/10 - 11:05 AM
Perhaps my favorite part about working for this site is that I get to expose people to bands they may otherwise never hear, regardless of genre. Today I introduce to you Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys. Head over to the band's AP.net profile to stream their new album, Steam Ship Killers. I'd love to describe it to you, but they are the kind of band that is so unique that you have to hear them and form your own opinions. If you dig it, pick up a physical copy here or a digital here. Also do yourself a favor and see them live if you have the chance; they are one of my favorite bands to watch.

As an Elliott Smith fan girl, it was no surprise that Jeremy Messersmith's debut album, The Alcatraz Kid, caught my attention back in '06. His beautiful voice was accompanied with gorgeous melodies which were very reminiscent of Elliott's work. Keeping up with Jeremy's later albums, The Silver City (2006) and the just released The Reluctant Graveyard has been just as pleasant, as his work is nothing short of amazing. If you have not had the chance to listen to any of his albums yet, we have a full stream of his latest album The Reluctant Graveyard - which was just released this past Tuesday - streaming on his AP.net profile in its entirety. This new album is the last of his trilogy, so...

The Joy Formidable's debut EP, A Balloon Called Moaning, received rave reviews last year - often drawing comparisons to the critically acclaimed Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Tomorrow, this album will finally be released in North America but you can now stream it in its entirety on their AP.net profile. It's hard to put labels on a band that has been called "a breath of fresh air" by many critics, so all that is left to say is: brace yourself for some dreamy indie pop tunes - with the perfect mix of noise rock - that will make you want to jam along. The vocals and melodies are irresistible, so go take a listen now and don't forget to purchase the album later.

The Momeraths will release their debut EP A Single Cup Of Tea on April 12th, but you can now stream it on their AP.net profile in its entirety. It's upbeat and catchy, with the perfect mix of indie pop quirkiness. So if you enjoyed the Slow Club stream the other week, you might just love this one too. Go listen and make sure to buy the album when you're done.

Steve Henderson on 11/05/09 - 09:05 PM
If you enjoy "classic-sounding modern rock", bands like Muse and Coheed and Cambria who successfully take what's been done before and mutate it to their own distinct intent, then head to Flying Machines' Profile and check the AP-only stream of "Stay". These guys mesh Queen's classic swagger and indie-rock charm as fluidly as possible. Grab the record here.
