Northwest purveyors of Alt-Indie Psych Rock KEEF released their sanity-saving earworm ‘In This Town’ on November 13th, 60’s Psych tones are teased, but there’s no escaping the present in this damningly danceable depiction of the 21st century.
Sticky-sweet kaleidoscopic accordance introduces despondent vocals which allow you to taste the grit of modernity whilst savouring the roguish foreboding derision which only Northern artists can serve up with such finesse and sincerity.
The playful venom which is spat towards people who obnoxiously make the world a bleaker place was the catharsis fix I never knew I needed.
In This Town affirms the necessity of music which permits a collective sense of consolation by feeding our frustrations back at us with the assurance that you’re not alone in your nihilism. While I’m gutted I can’t listen to it live and embrace the psychotropic effects of the eccentrically nuanced instrumentals in a sweaty euphoric crowd, I’m overwhelmingly gratified that I got a dopamine hit from this scathingly choral hit all the same.
In This Town will be available to stream on all major platforms from November 13thvia this link.

Austin, TX Alt-Indie trio Favor’s recently released single “Wishing at the Well” is the taste-breaker that your Alt Indie playlists have been crying out for. The rhythmically captivating track simultaneously oozes sex appeal and commercial appeal. There really is no room to wonder why so many have been drawn to their massive yet intimate sound.
There’s a slight nod to 60s Psych and there are some elements of old-school Garage Rock thrown in for good measure. But with the dynamically-sonic appeal and the freshly alluring vernacular in the lyrics, Wishing at the Well offers all the distinction you need to confirm that Favor is one of the most authentic newcomers to the airwaves.
With their rhythmically raucous energy and their ability to make a strong connection with the listener – in spite of the DIY-style production, you don’t really need any more indicators that Favor is an Indie Rock trio well worth putting on your radar.

If your playlists could use an injection of catharsis, look no further than the sublimely mellifluous single R3D0 from breaking Alternative artist 8udDha bl0od.
Fans of the Beatles and other 60s Psych Pop Rock pioneers will definitely appreciate the gently enticing rhythms which aid transcendental escapism while simultaneously leaving you enamoured by the artist’s ability to create such a transfixing soulful single.
It’s lyrically light, but perceptibly, R3D0 was stripped-back to the essential components to offer nothing but sheer psychedelic good vibes.
Not all of 8udDha bl0od’s tracks are as captivatingly serene as R3D0. But this just affirms that the Brighton-based artist has no trouble when it comes to orchestrating more traditional, accessible and radio-friendly tracks despite their inclination to explore slightly less archetypal sounds.
You can check out R3D0 which was released in February 2020 along with 8udDha bl0od’s tracks for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
