The Daily Listening premieres L.I.A.R., Annalibera‘s 3-song follow-up EP to the debut full-length Nevermind I Love You, taken from the same recording session and coming out on 6/16:
Des Moines has some budding indie-rock royalty on their hands. After discovering the spellbindingly-beautiful sounds of Annalibera this past winter, we’ve been sharing their debut, Nevermind I Love You, with anyone willing to listen…Emerging with its own cohesive style and theme, L.I.A.R. employs a semi-country-tinged twang-pop playfulness sure to win over any listener.

Bryne Yancey at The Runout premieres the full stream of Pollen‘s Buyer’s EP, out on cassette and digital formats on March 10th.
Pollen use that approachable lens of ’60s garage and early punk as a hook to explore much deeper and very real modern issues…Riveting stuff, and through this lens, the songs end up being weirdly fun as hell while remaining cogent in their messaging.

Styrofoam Drone has the full stream of the debut s/t EP from Austin garage/punk trio Pollen, officially out on June 10th!
[The EP is] built around boy/girl vocals and a constant guitar shimmer. Crunchy guitars come backed by sunny vocal harmonies and throbbing bass in “Not a Test,” which starts the EP with an invigorating pop punch…“Short Selling” comes with a bouncy post-punk flare, sounding tight and wonky with plenty of shouting. It’s a different look at their sound compared to “Apartment,” which weaves angular guitars and bass into one stressful twang. The fluttering chorus is driven by Morgan’s breathy vocals, followed by rumbling bass lines and dusty guitars.
