The Rare Occasions release new single "Set It Right"

In these times of limited movement, nothing says that you can't get the blood pumping inside your own home. If you need a track to help you get your body moving, consider The Rare Occasions' "Set It Right", a track pleading for kindness in the form of blistering indie rock. During these next few weeks, kindness will be necessary, as well as the need to dance. "Set It Right" is the perfect anthem in those cases; adding it to your end-of-the-world playlists would be wise. The Rare Occasions just appeared on the recent compilation cover album honoring Green Day's Insomniac, featuring many of LA's best up-and-coming indie bands. They'll also release an EP in two parts over the course of the year. Take a listen to "Set It Right" below. - Will Sisskind

Weathers drops new single "Feel Good" for these trying times

Coronavirus keeping you in the house? Show cancellations rocking your music lover heart to the core? Fear not, for not even the crushing despair of self quarantine can keep you from jamming out to Weathers' new single "Feel Good". The alt-rock group just finished their tour with Echosmith -- good timing -- and "Feel Good" captures all of the energy of the band's live show into one synth-filled good vibe torch song. Frontman Cameron Boyer wrote the song as a testament to his search for an escape route from loneliness and despair while on tour in the beginning of last year, and you can feel that drive come through in his voice. If you're looking for a song to get you through this potentially lonely and isolating time, give "Feel Good" a shot; listen to it below. - Will Sisskind


Hollow Fortyfives release new EP "Weekender" for any day of the week

The Hollow Fortyfives have put out their new EP Weekender, and despite what the name may suggest, the record suits any day of the week. The indie rock jams of Travis Corsaut, Brett Incardone, and Lucas Renberg pay tribute to late nights, debauchery, and general reckless fun outside the confines of the doldrums of the workplace, the chore chart, and the day-to-day responsibilities. At under twenty minutes, Weekender makes for a good one-time listen on your way home from work on a Friday evening, or -- if you put it on loop -- you can make it your soundtrack for your whole Saturday or Sunday, if not both. Weekender is the follow-up to the band's debut 2018 LP Strange Times, and while the rock-and-roll power remains, there's an extra crunch on the new EP that gives it just a little more bite. Check out one of the tracks from Weekender, called "Get Out", below. - Will Sisskind



03.13: Mild Minds releases melancholic debut album "MOOD"

Maybe, given the recent goings on in the world, you've had a rough go of it, and just need some time to disassociate. If you need to freshen up your Music To Zone Out To playlist, give Mild Minds' MOOD a try. Run by Benjamin David, Mild Minds has the trip hop sounds to which fans of Caribou and Four Tet will find themselves dancing. MOOD, Mild Minds' debut album, has tracks such as "Movements" and "Walls" which layer catchy drum grooves and soft pulsing synths over droning bass. The effect will keep you moving to the beat as you remove yourself from whatever stressful medical, financial, or mental situation threatening you at the moment. MOOD drops on March 13th; take a look at the music video for "Walls" below. - Will Sisskind


Carrousel releases modern day lo-fi video for "A Solitary Soul"

CARROUSEL -- the duo of Joel and Sharon Piedt -- have released a music video for their new single "A Solitary Soul", off their new EP I Wasn't Well. The song brings the psych rock energy of the Piedts, but the video shows real creativity within limits, as the duo used iPhones alone to shoot the footage. In this day and age, to use just a phone to shoot a film might seem lo-fi. But the other production values the Piedts focused on took their video to another level. Their spacesuit costumes and locations -- some of which were used to film the Tatooine scenes for Star Wars -- create a sense of depth and atmosphere on top of that which the music already provides. Take a look at the video for yourself below, and go find I Wasn't Well on CARROUSEL's Bandcamp. - Will Sisskind
