The latest from Mondo Cozmo, The Offspring, Susan O'Neill, Belfountain, The Heavy Heavy

Mondo Cozmo: Wild Horses

This track heralds Josh Ostrander's fourth studio album under the Mondo Cozmo moniker, It’s PRINCIPLE!, due in August. The song "draws you in with its bold, galloping beat, and exudes power in the first half," writes his home-area radio station WXPN-Philadelphia. "However, the song takes a turn ... into a piano ballad, giving way to Cozmo’s raw vocals, expressing the range of emotions he was dealing with during the writing process as his dog (and band namesake) Cozmo was nearing the end of his life."

The Offspring: Make It All Right

AllMusic has called The Offspring "perhaps the quintessential SoCal punk band of the 1990s," which turned out a string of "snotty, satirical alt-rock hits." After a nine-year break, they released Let The Bad Times Go in 2021, and now they've announced Supercharged for October release. The song "talks about the people in our lives who make us feel strong when we are feeling low — our partners in crime who make us feel all right," says group leader Dexter Holland.

Susan O'Neill: Bright Eyes

This singer-songwriter from Ireland's County Clare will release a solo album, Now In A Minute, in September. She has previously recorded and toured as SON, and in 2021 collaborated with Cork singer-songwriter Mick Flannery on a concept album called In The Game, the biggest-selling independent selling Irish album that year. We're told Flannery co-wrote some of the 12 songs on the new album.

Belfountain: Tell Me When It Rains

An indie-folk-rock project fronted by Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Chris Graham makes its debut this week with Some Hearts. The album is billed as a "roots-inspired collection ... an earthy mix of old and new." This second track has a soulful flavor, and the sound and subject matter put us in mind of old songs like the Temptations' "I Wish It Would Rain." (Photo by Dzesika Devic)

The Heavy Heavy: Happiness

Will Turner and Georgie Fuller started their Brighton, UK-based band with the ambition of “making records that sound like our favorite records ever." We picked up on their 2022 EP Life and Life Only, and now they're out with their debut LP, One Of A Kind, expanding on their "sunshine psych-pop and folk sound." This track certainly has a 60s retro sound.
