Matthew Reveles and Fancy Cloud are back with their new, 2019 album, Split.

Released through Phoenix’s President Gator Records, this is the latest proper album from Reveles/Cloud since 2013’s New Year, New Jacket (also released through President Gator) and the first release for the label this year.

DENNY “Girls Like You” This trio from Minneapolis describes their sound as “Posh boy pop” which, I must admit, had me on the fence. But, gawddam, this song is catchy. It comes in with a wave of orchestral-indie-pop, but the permutations in this track will surprise. The multi-instrumentalists behind DENNYRead More →

St. Vincent “Los Ageless” If St. Vincent hadn’t already established her indie street cred early on, that album with David Byrne really locked it down. The indie-electro artist just released her latest album, MASSEDUCTION, and it ready to head out on tour. She’ll be stopping at The Van Buren in Phoenix onRead More →
