Call My Name by Haerts

On the verge of synth pop majesty, Haerts have given us “Call My Name,” a new track which could possibly be the first single off their eagerly anticipated debut album (which doesn’t have a release date yet).  As with everything else released by the New York City quartet, “Call My Name” is a dreamy masterpiece that radiates warmth even as it takes the band down a more brokenhearted, bittersweet road.  Always perfectly guided by the lush voice of songstress/goddess, Nini Fabi, and a mixture of just the right amount of 70s melodic nostalgia, Haerts has yet to let us down.  I fully expect their first LP to be no exception.  Enjoy.

Desert Flowers by Wake Owl

I finally had an opportunity to absorb Wake Owl’s debut album, The Private World of Paradise, and am still trying to wrap my head around what a huge leap forward (and in a completely different direction) the soft rock album is from the backwoods, folksy Wild Country EP released over two years ago.  The song that caught my attention the most and has been trapped inside my head for days is the exotic, Middle Eastern influenced “Desert Flowers.”  The winding, hypnotic guitar riff opens up the track and then fades while Colyn Cameron calmly whispers over synths that seem to ebb and flow forever.  At just two and a half minutes, “Desert Flowers” is painfully brief, leaving us clamoring for more.  I’m assuming that was WO’s plan all along.  Enjoy.

Better Off by Quadron

It took Quadron three years to return after its self-titled debut album and it was worth the wait.  Want proof?  Just check out the duo’s jazzy, soft rock track, “Better Off,” from their sophomore album, Avalanche.  The R&B groove and faint funk guitar keeps the song pulsating smoothly.  “Better Off” melts into a subdued verse by the skilled rapper, Kendrick Lamar, who doesn’t attempt to steal the spotlight but be a natural extension of the song.  Everyone has that list of songs that define a summer and this year, “Better Off” should make each list.  You’d be better off not to miss this track.  See what I did there?  Enjoy.
