Dan Auerbach, Jenn Grant, Courtney Barnett, Colony House, Blindlove: New music variety

Dan Auerbach: Every Chance I Get (I Want You In the Flesh)

Through his Easy Eye Sound label, Auerbach just released Tell Everybody, a compilation of "21st Century juke-joint blues" featuring various contemporary artists. This is his one solo contribution to the collection, an original song that, as review site Exclaim! puts it, "joins a musical lineage of blues borrowing."

Jenn Grant: Nobody's Fool feat. Aquakulture

We dip back into Champagne Problems, this summer's release on which the singer-songwriter-producer collaborated with other artists from across Canada. This time she's joined by Nova Scotia neighbors Aquakulture as she stretches her sound into retro-soul.

Courtney Barnett: Different Now

This is a cover of a 2017 song by Seattle-based Chastity Belt. Barnett is joined by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa on drums and synths. Paste magazine writes: "Barnett’s vocals take a subdued, scaled back route, as she morphs the song into an ‘80s pop soundscape." Meanwhile we await Barnett's next album, End of the Day, due next month.

Colony House: Cannonballers

This indie band from Tennessee calls its brand of music "landlocked surf-rock." This song "alludes to the pace of life we all seem to be living at these days - fast," says frontman Caleb Chapman. "When I stumbled upon the guitar riff that drives the song it kinda felt like a rollercoaster ride, so I began to form the lyric around the first rollercoaster I remember riding as a kid, the Wabash Cannonball at Opryland USA Themepark."

Blindlove: Juggernaut

These rockers hail from Salt Lake City and have toured the Mountain West, including opening stints for The Offspring and Blue October. We previously featured their 2020 debut single, "I Wanna Be Okay," which resonated through that year's lockdown days. Singer Brogan Kelby says this new single "is about overcoming obstacles and finding strength to move forward."
