Caitlyn here, I’m crushing pretty hard on some bands right now. Here’s a brief rundown:
Band: Pity Sex. Three dudes and a lady from Ann Arbor, Michigan
Sounds like: lo-fi shoegaze-y pop (think Dinosaur Jr with My Bloody Valentine ambience)
Perfect for: sun-soaked beach tunes
Band: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. Basically Stephen’s best stuff post Pavement. Sometimes, period.
Sounds like: a guy who can make an eye roll audible
Perfect for: getting stuck on the 405 and hating on The Man
Band: Joyce Manor. Some good ol’ punx out of Torrance, California who aren’t afraid to get real emotional.
Sounds like: Guided by Voices meets pop-punk
Perfect for: screaming along to in your car at embarrassing volumes
Band: Camera Obscura. Scottish sunshine, shimmery indie-pop
Sounds like: summer heartbreak
Perfect for: thinking about your summer crush
