Ears Wide Open: Molly Horses


Post-punk quartet Molly Horses debut today with the jagged, blistering single “Beatty,” a diatribe about small-town malaise, with frontman Happy James speak-singing acidly about getting a job at the Dairy Queen.

Stream: Meatbodies, ‘Hole’


Meatbodies introduce their new full-length with “Hole,” a majestic single that reflects the rough place main man Chad Ubovich was in when he embarked on the album. “Flora Ocean Tiger Bloom” will be out in March.

Stream: Day Wave, ‘As You Are’


“As You Are,” the first single from Day Wave since last year’s acclaimed album “Pastlife,” dissects the benumbing feelings as a relationship ends. It’s an almost-cleansing melancholy.

Ears Wide Open: Indio Downey


Indio Downey will release “Cigarettes in Bed,” his first solo EP, in January. His latest single “Dume” references the point in Malibu, but it’s more about addiction — the doom of “self-destruction.”


Stream: Jonathan Rado, ‘Easier’


Jonathan Rado salutes two late friends, including Richard Swift, on his new album “For Who the Bell Tolls For,” out Friday. It’s reverent, done irreverently — a ride as wild as its grammatically challenged title.

Ears Wide Open: Mimi Pretend


Dream-pop artist Mimi Pretend will release her second EP in January. Both her debut EP, “Sick Eros,” and her latest single, “Nobody Lives in Wyoming,” cast her diary entries on an ethereal, cinematic scrim.
