PICKWICK “Hacienda Motel”

Pickwick is my newest Seattle obsession. They’re a huge soul revival band featuring a soulful singer, tropical guitars, funky keyboards and tons of tambourines.

They’re written in ink on my “must see” list for South by Southwest.

Polica - Daytrotter Session →

Polica is one of my favorite discoveries ahead of this year’s South by Southwest festival. They have a sort of dreamy pop song that’s somewhat similar to Gayngs (both groups are from Minneapolis) and some unusual instrumentation (singer on synths/loops, bass player and two drummers).

Setlist: Amongster / Wandering Star / Dark Star / Form

HEARTLESS BASTARDS “Parted Ways”

You can always rely on Heartless Bastards to provide some solid rock. Set to release their fourth album Arrow next week, the band has quietly put together an impressive catalog of songs.

Maybe they’ll finally get their big breakthrough with Arrow. For what it’s worth, I like it a lot.

SHEARWATER “Animal Life”

Shearwater’s new album Animal Joy has leaked and I really, really like it. It’s intense, gorgeous and majestic…everything you’d expect from a great Shearwater album.

It’s the best thing I’ve heard so far this year and I could easily see it landing in my Top 10 at the year’s end.
