Fox Grin, a art-rock/dream-pop duo originally from Atlanta that's now based in Nashville. Thomas Chapman (vocals/guitar/keys) and David Bean (bass/backing vocals) aim to create "brilliantly colored soundscapes with a pop-song sensibility." Atlanta Immersive has called their music "wonderfully lush noise." They've just released their third collection, King Of Spades, and our featured pick is "One Day."
Coveter, an emerging alt-rock band from Ottowa that put out its first EP, Love Me To Pieces, a few months back. One review said its five songs "do an excellent job of incorporating alternative, blues, funk, and even pop with a modern twist. [The band's] greatest trick is how it seems to rock hard, yet seems so laid back." Coveter's sound is on the rough-and-noisy edge of what we typically play, but we're enjoying the jaunty sound of our featured track, "Who Knows?"
Our other New Music picks of the week are additional cuts from albums we've featured in recent weeks:
- From Tempest by Vancouver Island's Band of Rascals, we're adding "Altitude."
- And from the self-titled album by Rochester, N.Y.'s Heroic Enthusiasts, we're picking up "Pure Fade"
