Hooray For Earth

Hooray For Earth

Hooray For Earth, a quartet of Boston transplants who honed their sound in New York, do not shy away from synthesizers or lush arrangements.

They impressively debut their album True Loves today.

Gorgeously rendered with layered sounds and horn accents, “No Love” is a free download.

Cults

Cults is a duo from New York, not to be confused with the band The Cult.

Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin released a 3-song EP last year and their debut album, also called Cults, comes out tomorrow.

“Go Outside”, from both the EP and the new album, is a free from Amazon. “Abducted” was free from the band’s mailing list.

Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts is an English quartet featuring the stunning falsetto of Hayden Thorpe.

“Albatross” is the first single from their recently released third album Smother.

This song and fourteen others, including music from the likes of Art Brut, Meat Puppets, and Dengue Fever, are free from the June issue of Spin.

The Vaccines

The Vaccines debut album What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? Is now available in this country.

One listen to this British quartet and their debt to the Ramones is evident.

As Joey Ramone would have told me: “They’re one of us”.

“Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra) kicks off the album at a perfect 1 minute, 24 seconds. Punk rock at its finest.
