The Goodbye Party Release Final Single "No Reason"

photo by Ali Donohue

The Goodbye Party has shared "No Reason" a gentle power-pop number his upcoming album Beautiful Motors. Brooklyn Vegan, who premiered the track today, is saying it "nails a balance between warm, summery melodies and autumnal melancholy -- the perfect kind of song to drop on the first official day of fall."

Of the song, Cantor says "this song deals with a couple of themes. One is how people you no longer keep in your life can show up in some of your favorite memories. It's also about the experience of passing through the same place across different tours and seeing decay creep along, seeing cascading effects from hurricanes, and recognizing that slow change in yourself. My friend Emi Knight from Strawberry Runners sings on this song. She, along with a handful of local songwriters, held monthly salons where we would demo and critique each other's songs. Having that space helped me focus, write, and rewrite songs for this record."

Beautiful Motors is available everywhere October 9th.

-Pitchfork

"Hannah feels warm and immensely comforting. It radiates light even in its darkest moments. At the center of all of these songs is Read's remarkable voice, which sounds swallowed up and wide open all at once."
-Stereogum (Album of the Week)

"Meditative and beautiful."
-NPR

"Truly lovely and wondrous music... Hannah Read's songs as Lomelda are both tender and devastatingly cathartic."

Listen to the latest cut from The Goodbye Party — "December Boys" is a powerful and reminiscent track. Watch the visual and read a statement from Michael Cantor below:

When my partner and I started dating, she was writing a graphic novel that documented her first year in Philly. Naturally, she captured the beginning of our relationship in the book. The lyrics are a short collection of some of those pages. The song itself came together in about 20 minutes, but took another 7 years to make it onto an album.

Please welcome The Goodbye Party to Double Double Whammy! The Goodbye Party is the project of Michael Cantor, a hidden gem of the Philadelphia indie scene for years. Listen to the first single "Unlucky Stars" from their new full-length album Beautiful Motors, out October 9th.

"The atmospheric electric guitar tones at the top of the song glide into a swift drumbeat, a crunching chord progression, and Cantor’s angelic vocal delivering beautiful melodies and layered harmonic counterpoints in the vein of The Beach Boys and Pernice Brothers."
—The Key XPN

"a jangly and sentimental song driven along by teetering hooks and Cantor’s pinched-up vocals."

Mirah Shares Remastered "Murphy Bed" and Ethereal Half Waif Cover

Half Waif by Tonje Thilesen



Mirah has shared a remastered version and Half Waif cover of "Murphy Bed," the latest from the recently announced 20th anniversary reissue of You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This.


Of the cover, Half Waif's Nandi Rose said: "It was a huge honor to record a cover for the legendary Mirah in celebration of this 20th anniversary reissue. I chose 'Murphy Bed' because I could immediately hear the chorus being reimagined as a more choral-focused arrangement. There's also something obviously sensual about this song lyrically, so I wanted to play that up with the slow backbeat and just have some fun with it. I'm really grateful to Mirah for her fearless songwriting, and I loved getting to interpret that with my own arrangement."

Mirah Announces "You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This" Reissue and Tribute Covers LP


photo by Meghan Marin

Today, Mirah has announced a 20th anniversary reissue of her seminal album, You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This. The double LP reissue includes a remastered version of the record as well as a tribute to the album that features covers by Mount Eerie, Hand Habits, Half Waif, Palehound, Shamir, Y La Bamba, Allison Crutchfield and more.

You can hear Mount Eerie's cover of "Of Pressure" now. Read a quote from Phil Elverum below:



"It was a joy to record my version of Mirah's song 'Of Pressure' using the old cassette 4 track and all the instruments we used to use together in the old days," said Mount Eerie's Phil Elverum, "Same air organ, same antique drum machine, same chaos. I remember when Mirah first recorded her original. It was part of a batch of songs that she worked on independently of our collaboration in Dub Narcotic studio. Her 4 track world. That one was a big built world of mounting layers, the feeling of pressure and depth. I loved it and I still do. I wanted to see if I could make it a little more oppressive even."

"Harriette Pilbeam delivered a certified Album of the Year contender in her June dream-pop opus Keepsake. That debut LP has given us several 2019 highlights, and now Hatchie puts a mighty bow on the year with a video for her space-gazing pop lullaby 'Her Own Heart'" - Vanyaland

"a perfect slice of throwback slacker alt-rock, the sound of a slowly twisting radio dial in 1996. It leads with its melodies, all of which are engineered to burrow into your brain, but it will leap off into shameless funk breakdowns and pop-rock riffs at a moment's notice.” - the FADER

“…Sean Henry is completing his transition from DIY pop rock savant (first as Boy Crush, and then in the short-lived High Pop) to a fully-realized songwriting auteur.”- Post-Trash

"Through lenses of wonky pop, alt-rock and even hip-hop, Henry’s heartfelt, charming songs feel like they’ve been unearthed rather than created."- Paste Magazine

Great Grandpa shares Four of Arrows


Great Grandpa's anxiously awaited sophomore full-length Four of Arrows, is out today! Alight with expansive instrumentation and vulnerable lyrical contemplations of one's life course, the record was born from a turn of creative introspection as the band found themselves isolated after relocating to different states following their 2017 release, Plastic Cough. Realized in bursting, expressive technicolor Four of Arrows marks an exciting sonic and emotional turning point for Great Grandpa. Be sure to catch the band on tour this fall on dates with Vivian Girls, Dump Him, Trace Mountains and more!


“…it’s clear from the start that Four Of Arrows is a massive level-up. You get the sense that this is the band that Great Grandpa have always wanted to be” - Stereogum naming it the Album of The Week

“Impressionistic, emotionally exhaustive, and delivered through a stream of lush harmonies, it takes the terrestrial promise of their debut and throws it into the cosmos” - The FADER

“The result is their boldest work yet, thick slabs of guitars conjuring up an atmosphere that sits as a moody backdrop for Alex Menne’s heady, enthralling lead vocal” - Gold Flake Paint

"'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

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

"Covering an expansive sonic range that includes indie-folk, bombastic garage-rock, and serene chamber-pop, “Digger” is an enthralling ballad that hits stratospheric emotional heights."

Sean Henry announces second full length, A Jump From the High Dive, out November 1st. Born from adult recollections of childhood musings of canceled little league baseball games, lead single "Rain, Rain" is drenched in nostalgia and reintroduces Henry with a newly revived sound. Reflecting on the inspiration behind the album Henry describes what life looked when the record was realized - “I was doing a lot of couch surfing, living where I grew up in a Connecticut ghost town and touring around the country. I was all over the place. Amidst trying to sort things out, I wanted to make my version of a pop album.”


"‘Rain Rain’ teases a subtle shift in trajectory from the grungy, grittier elements. Here [he] leans into a marginally cleaner tone. The melody sounds almost like a solo-career George Harrison riff; an easy but surprising progression, a shinier high end, and a fondness for a minor drop. Henry’s guitar sounds like rain feels. It’s cooling." - popbollocks
