"Lost Dog", the single off the upcoming EP by a band called
Greasy Hearts is a feriously good jam. It's got everything you need in a good garage-punk song: Fuzzy, howling vocals, a foot-stomping rhythm, and enough distortion to stick your cat's fur straight up. We always breath a sigh of relief when I come across a band who seemingly is doing the garage-rock shtick right; it's not easy to work within a genre where basically every possible riff and rhythm has been used before. Nevertheless, Greasy Hearts pulls it off with "Lost Dog", and now you'll have to check them out live to get the full picture. They're playing The Silent Barn TONIGHT (7/24), and The Rock Shop in October. Stream "Lost Dog" below. - Jake Saunders

Journalism is a fresh Brooklyn band that we're sure is going to catch some ears in the coming years - at least if they keep making music like the last couple singles they've released. We got a chance to sneak a peak at their upcoming debut EP, 1324, and it is indeed a contender. Their first single, "A Thousand Pricks", has this infectiously catchy guitar melody that inducts a beautiful underwater vibe, but each song has something unique about it that's worthy of the head-tilt. Influence from bands like Real Estate and Spoon are present, but there's not much to say other than that this band has got some great jams and some really catchy grooves. Their release show is TOMORROW (7/25) at Palisades with a killer lineup including Turnip King, Onwe and Honduras. - Jake Saunders

“Bands are unstable molecules, bands don’t want to be bands, they want to fly apart. There’s always tension; I think a lot of that’s where the music comes from." You can find these words in the Mishka Shubali feature on our recent
Ten Year Anniversary issue, and they certainly hit the nail on the head when applied to CT/NYC based indie pop band Grand Cousin, who find themselves in the peculiar position of celebrating - on the same night - an EP release show and a farewell party. The trio plays an intense brand of pop with folk tinges that's partly reminiscent of Jeff Buckley. Check out the recent video for single 'Oxygen' and - if you dig - enjoy the band's last show at Arlene's on 07.27
