The B-Side: Reticent Alien

What a cool song. “Get the Picture” by Reticent Alien has a bopping, galloping acoustic guitar core that gives it a unique sense of movement you just don’t hear in songs these days. It pulses and moves things along like a strong current, upon which swim the vocals and lyrics that remind us a bit of one of the all time unsung great songwriters; Michael Penn. It’s one of the coolest combinations we’ve heard in a while, with a distinctly different type of shredding and a top notch song to boot.

Week Ender – Higher Selves Playdate

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you into the weekend with.

A simple scratchy acoustic guitar progression kicks off “Coming Up Roses” by Higher Selves Playdate but it’s not long before things have built into a glitchy, fuzzed out, synth laced noisy and melodic and glorious anthem to uncertainty. Even though the song never really strays from that original scratchy progression, a multitude of instruments are dug out of HSP’s toy chest to make an appearance, giving the song not only a sense of movement and change but also one of lo-fi epic-ness. Repetitive lyrics add a level of pop hookiness to the whole affair to make one of the unlikeliest catchy ear worms of the year.

Five by five isn’t just how many tissues per hour we’re going through thanks to allergies, it’s also short short reviews of brand new tracks by Tunnel, Sadboisam, Beggars Bold, AJ Lambert and Kristian Moller-Munar that are perfect for a Benadryl haze.
