This week Andy Matter (of Opposable Thumbs, Furlong, and Mimi Von Schnitzl) released his debut solo album Pacific Midwest with Gubbey Records. These ten songs, recorded over the past three years, achieve a sound described as "power(ful) pop" reminiscent of Bob Mould and are available at Modern Cult Records.
The Department of Homeland Recording also released IamIs' new digital single Lead Hands on Tuesday to promote their forthcoming album Go Supernovae! Accompanying the digital release is their first music video, a cult-like homage to the crooners of old. Lead hands can be purchased here, and be sure to keep an ear to the ground for their upcoming full-length release.
