Scott & Charlene's Wedding - "Two Weeks"
Brooklyn via Melbourne band, providing the most charmingly dishevelled indie-pop around. "I'm old fashioned just like my dad/ I get awkward on video chat."
The So So Glos - "Son of an American (live on Letterman)"
Confident, catchy pop-punk from Brooklyn DIY scene institutions on record, elevated into something even better in the moment.
Thee Oh Sees - "Toe Cutter - Thumb Buster"
My pick for the best song the last few years of San Francisco's garage rock renaissance has produced.
Mikal Cronin - "Shout It Out"
Power-pop with a sunny summer crunch.
Foxygen - "San Francisco"
Soft-focus Kinks worship, but with enough of a sarcastic charm to transcend that accurate description.
