Daily Yinz – Pat Coyle – Glimmer of Gordon

Pat Coyle posits his latest album, Relic of a Rift, as a series of snapshots into the lonely, disconnected lives of alternate selves. Relic retains the melancholy of Coyle's previous releases, but sends his sorrow spinning onto a dimly-lit dance floor in a flurry of blipping electronic beats. "Glimmer of Gordon," which contrasts breezy acoustic … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Pat Coyle – Glimmer of Gordon

Daily Yinz – Water Trash – The Mission

Water Trash return with another dose of funhouse garage rock, released in advance of their upcoming album, The Trash is Always Greener. "The Mission," a which came out in December, sounds like theme music for a TV show that centers on a seemingly average college student super spy whose job it is to infiltrate frats … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Water Trash – The Mission

Daily Yinz – Anti-Corn League – Caroline No Revisited

The "weirdo-rockers" of Anti-Corn League craft twangy, lo-fi tunes; they released their latest EP, Ghosts, last month. Bob Dylan revisited Highway 61, a stretch of road that runs from Minnesota to Louisiana; now, Anti-Corn League revisit "Caroline No," a mournful Beach Boys lullaby. Not to say that this is a cover (it doesn't bare a … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Anti-Corn League – Caroline No Revisited

Daily Yinz – Valleyview – Rose Colored Glasses

Jesse Farine's Valleyview project goes post-punk on the recent single "Rose Colored Glasses." Where Valleyview's debut single, released in 2020, was all sunny acoustic guitar and outlandish vocals, "Rose Colored Glasses" embraces the dour atmosphere of 80's acts like Joy Division and Bauhaus without sacrificing the previous release's eccentricity. Drums flit like bat wings, guitars … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Valleyview – Rose Colored Glasses

Daily Yinz – Barlow – At Home

In September, noise-poppers Barlow celebrated the 10th anniversary of their first set by releasing an album called Walls of Future. Even though Walls of Future's title wouldn't sound out of place affixed to a big-budget Marvel picture, the album itself, like so many of Barlow's others, is gloriously lo-fi. Recording at home using Logic and … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Barlow – At Home

Daily Yinz – Canary – Fools

Canary, a duo whose gossamer ballads recall slowcore stalwarts like Low, released a four-track album called Here in early October. Here contains a blend of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, the two elements tied together by Helena P. Nichols's vocals, which range from new-agey to baroque (albeit a super downtempo offshoot of baroque) in nature. Opener … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Canary – Fools

As Weird As We Can — A Q+A With The Digitized Distortion Junkies of feeble little horse

Photo provided by artist Feeble little horse are a quartet that filters compact pop music through layers of fuzz and electronic sound effects. Their April debut EP, modern tourism, contained five nuggets of bummed out bedroom fare, while their upcoming full-length album, Hayday (due out 10/22 on Julia's War Recordings), raises the group's sound to … Continue reading As Weird As We Can — A Q+A With The Digitized Distortion Junkies of feeble little horse

Daily Yinz/Premiere – The Real Sea – Jeong Kwan

Dream-poppers The Real Sea follow up June's swooning "Paper Machete" with "Jeong Kwan," premiering this morning on Bored In Pittsburgh. The single pays tribute to the titular Seon Buddhist nun and vegan chef, a woman who uses simple, homegrown food to explore the eternal. The song hits like a sunrise--slight at first, and then radiant--starting … Continue reading Daily Yinz/Premiere – The Real Sea – Jeong Kwan

Daily Yinz – Rex Tycoon – Dive Bar Diner

Indie-rockers Rex Tycoon recently released a goofy two-track album called Dive Bar Diner. The title track describes a place that all of us know in one form or another, the mediocre establishment where "the food's no good," "soda tastes funny," "chicken mashed potatoes always come out cold," and "there's a broken down jukebox at the … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Rex Tycoon – Dive Bar Diner

Daily Yinz – The Real Sea – Paper Machete

The Real Sea are a dream-pop quartet whose latest single, "Paper Machete," came out in late June. "Paper Machete" is the kind of swooning, hazy thing that, when performed live, could coax even the most introverted showgoers away from the wall and into the middle of the floor, to sway rapturously as chiming guitars and … Continue reading Daily Yinz – The Real Sea – Paper Machete
