Tuesday Tip-Off: Tender Glue

Effortlessness is the hardest thing to achieve in art. That quality that a thing wasn’t made out of great effort, but rather just sprang into being fully formed and uninterrupted. “Sad Sometimes” by Tender Glue feels like that for us. An introspective indie rock number loosely in the vein of Band of Horses, the song’s melodies and tempo changes float and turn in ways that feel obvious after the fact; as if there really couldn’t be any other way for them to go that wouldn’t sound like a nudge and a pull. It sounds as right as the wind in the trees and as hippy dippy as that sounds, that’s where we land on this one.

Week Starter – Laveda

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

Did you have a good Labor Day? Did you chill in the pool and hang with friends? Did you eat too much and enter a near trance state of satiated bliss? Well if you want to keep that good feeling going a little longer might we suggest “Surprise” by Laveda. Falling on the poppier side of shoegaze, it’s a hazy slice of indie rock goodness that isn’t so much a throwback to the classic 80’s/90’s sg sound as it is a timeless addition to that tradition. Turn it up and keep the dream of summertime three day weekends going.
