Ditches get reflective on sunlit ballad "Setting In"

At the beginning of Ditches' "Setting In," a noisy squall foretells a feeling of impending dread. It quickly swerves our expectations with a dusky, sunlit ballad, where main songwriter Tim Donnelly's lazy croon dances against a plinky piano lead until it settles into an aching, slow-burning ending. The noise faintly comes back as it concludes, which only turns up the intrigue for what's yet to come. 

"Setting In" is taken from Donnelly's upcoming full-length debut record, Not Your Mirror, which is out later this summer. Juan Rodríguez

Squid Cult release video for new single "Baby Blue," full-length LP out 8/3

Sometimes, a little generosity can come a long way. In Squid Cult's latest video for "Baby Blue," it takes about 5,500 miles of separation to accomplish that mission. The indie rock foursome took an unconventional approach to bring some happiness to a transatlantic friendship, where the band members recreate a cheeky spy thriller with a lighthearted tone. The story unfolds like untying a knot, an adequate narrative for the song's fluid time signature changes and smooth, yet intricate instrumental arrangements. 

"Baby Blue" will be featured on Squid Cult's forthcoming full-length record All Boys Leave Home Someday, which comes out on August 3rd via Septarian Records. Juan Rodríguez

Polyplastic release new single "Next Slide," play at Gold Diggers on 6/29

Post-punk tends to go on two directions despite its sweeping expanse: you either mitigate some of its energy or you jar it as far as it can go. But there's an equal balance on Polyplastic's latest single "Next Slide," which takes the musty exterior of its Factory Records phase and reflects it with an elegiac beauty.  The duo of natives Charlie Ellis and Emily Ibarra deftly handle their latest single with a steady rhythmic pulse, where Ellis's torchy vocal delivery slithers against its lean, urgent guitars.  It almost sounds like a livelier take on Joy Division's "Dead Souls," but instead of a broken despondency, I hear a scintillating, and especially tuneful, anguish. 

"Next Slide," is the latest single off of Polyplastic's forthcoming EP, Not No Out, which comes out on June 29. The duo is celebrating the release with an EP release show at Gold Diggers on the same day. Juan Rodríguez
