Fang Island

Best New Music! Fang Island describe their aesthetic as “everyone high-fiving everyone,” and on their wildly infectious second album, the Brooklyn rockers take manic musicianship and shoutalong choruses to another level– even with only a couple of verses and choruses. Fang Island is fractured like any post-punk record while also speaking the language of classic rock, yet often feels like an intricate collage pieced together from elements that make songs memorable. It’s simply honest, life-affirming and infectious, and it’s that rare concentration of directness and simplicity that makes Fang Island so uniquely and wonderfully inclusive.

Delicate Steve

Delicate Steve hails from New Jersey and is fronted by DIY musician Steve Marion (who also runs a pretty rad label/collective called Small Boy Pants). Delicate Steve’s music takes a bit of a commitment. Because there are no vocals, Delicate Steve makes you work for those sweet pop melodies buried beneath the fuzzy percussive layers of guitars, analog synths, and drums. (Think about if Ratatat only listened to Sung Tongs by Animal Collective)
