Hovvdy's Heavy Lifter is out today

Hovvdy's third full-length record Heavy Lifter is available everywhere today! The latest from Texas duo Charlie Martin and Will Taylor, Heavy Lifter is a perfect sonic companion to the changing season.

"Heavy Lifter is lovingly wrinkled with the sleepy, lethargic harmonies that Hovvdy are known for, while the band tiptoe around their DIY approach by wrapping it in another dimension of magnetic warmth. Hovvdy's balanced expressions between residual nostalgia and murmuring secrecy are worn in beautifully on Heavy Lifter." - Exclaim!

Sean Henry shares "You Fall Away," last single from upcoming record


Sean Henry has shared "You Fall Away," the last single to be released in anticipation of A Jump From The High Dive, out November 1st. Be sure to catch Sean Henry supporting Spirit Was throughout the US in November!

"'You Fall Away' is droopy and melodic, like a wilting flower or a fading sunset. Henry has hurt in his voice, each word sinking into the inevitability of a departure." - Stereogum

"The song’s soft touch and nostalgic tones invite the listener in, despite its forlorn, heartbroken subject matter. The guitars and vocals capture the restless youth of mid-90s, crackling with a coiled energy that erupts in a final-minute guitar solo." - Post-Trash

Listen to Hovvdy's Final Single from Heavy Lifter "Mr. Lee"


Hovvdy have released the fourth and final single from Heavy Lifter — "Mr. Lee." It's a charming sonic turn for Hovvdy, carried along by piano. Heavy Lifter is out October 18th!

Of the song, Hovvdy's Charlie Martin says "I imagined Mr. Lee on the Mississippi gulf coast where my dad and grandparents live. It's a beautiful and sad place. The song is about how significant very small things can be. Sometimes it takes courage to be kind to yourself. It's really amazing when little events coalesce and all the sudden you feel better, awake, a vibrant piece of the bigger picture."

Great Grandpa shares new single "Bloom"

Today Great Grandpa shares "Bloom," the last single until their sophomore LP Four of Arrows is released on October 25th. In conversation with NYLON, Patrick Goodwin shared some of their songwriting goals for the tune - “the first being to write a song for [bassist] Carrie [Goodwin] that combined many of her favorite genres/artists—’90s pop-country, Tom Petty, Third Eye Blind, Taylor Swift, the Beatles, etc.—into something cohesive. The second being to capture this elusive spirit present in many of Petty’s great songs, where the underlying melancholy emotion is gilded or masked by joyful melodies and arrangements then slowly revealed in the lyrics.”

"an anthem for your inner underdog" - NYLON

"the Seattle band are seriously leveling up...the song is everything that this new version of Great Grandpa do so well, mixing sharp pop sensibilities with rootsy, emo-tinged indie rock" - Stereogum
