A new artist to many of you avid music listeners, Collington, has just released a brand new ep titled “In Between”. The 5 song ep featuring heart on the sleeve, thought provoking, indie rock inspired tunes meant to get your head spinning with those kind of sing-a-long songs. This is extremely well done and well played rock n’ roll that would please fans of Band of Horses, Switchfoot, Lifehouse, The Classic Crime, Manchester Orchestra, and Dashboard Confessional. It’s a diverse set of music and comes with my highest recommendation. This is independent music that wears the tag loosely and emerges with a certain amount of unparalleled confidence sure to wipe that sly snicker off every critic exposed to the ep. Yes, it is that good. If a label doesn’t pick up Collington in the next 6 months, then you can say I’m wrong. Stream below via Spotify. Enjoy!
Following up on the “introducing” feature that I brought you a few weeks ago is another new song from indie singer-songwriter, Benjamin Daniel. Check out the track “Inside My Shadow”, below. Follow Benjamin Daniel here. This song will appear as part of a new two part full length titled “Shaping Season” with Vol. 1 out this fall and Vol. 2 out summer 2019.

As you might have heard California has been struck by a series of destructive fires that have torn through towns with such force that people are left feeling broken. It’s terrible and unfortunately someone we have talked quite a bit about here on IVM, has lost his home and belongings as a result of these fires. Continued →

Another exciting signing to Facedown Records called “Weathered“, have just dropped their debut song “There Is One” via Facedown Records which you can listen to below.

In case you were living under a rock, classic alternative rock band (man, it feels weird to say that) – The Prayer Chain, have reunited and are making preparations for their upcoming 25th anniversary shows for their album “Shawl”. There are still some tickets available for the House of Blues Anaheim show so click here to get yours. Check out some practice preview video clips below.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of groundbreaking and highly influential debut album from Starflyer 59, “Silver” has now been pressed to Vinyl. The record along with a few bundle options is available right here and shipping now. This is a limited edition and once Velvet Blue sells out, that’ll be it. Don’t sleep on this fabulous vinyl pressing. I received my bundle yesterday and it is truly amazing, check out a picture below. Brings back so many memories and nostalgic feelings.

Something I’ve kept under wraps for a few weeks and a piece of news that I am truly excited about. The East Coast band – DENS, have indeed signed with California based record label Facedown Records and will release “No Small Tempest” Ep on June 29th. You can take a listen to the powerful new song titled “Deadrise” below. All you fans of Saosin, Thrice, My Epic, Attalus, and Armor For Sleep, will absolutely adore this new music. Facedown Records taking a chance on the more “rock” oriented bands like My Epic, Everything in Slow Motion, Attalus, and now DENS, is the best move they’ve ever made. I really enjoy their whole roster but the bands above have all made truly remarkable albums. Everyone go like DENS and give this new song a listen. Oh and you can pre-order this Ep in a few different bundle options right here.

Talkie, the band comprised of a few former members of the great Blood & Water, has returned with their 2nd full length effort called “Fundamental Things”. Right now for next 48 hours you can download the album for $1 via their bandcamp here. Great production quality and catchy indie-pop songs but I seriously want one more Blood & Water album. It probably won’t happy but whatever I’ll hold out hope ;)
