Loser Company's "Blueberry Skies" is a psych-tinged, indie rock gem

"Blueberry Skies," Loser Company's latest single, opens on a blissful tone, floating like a nostalgic reverie. A psychedelic whimsy immediately invites with a wondrous glow, but the songwriting duo of Will Saunders and Mas (Masato) Kihira present a setting that is far more grounded than it appears at first glance. "Smiling wide under blueberry skies / Pretendin’ everything’s fine," Saunders sings in a coarse, gruff manner, letting us assume that there's a troubling back story behind his otherwise colorful imagery. And it's a joy to behold—accented by a mid-tempo piano vamp and Saunders' histrionic guitar work, the duo's sprawling pop opus brings us back to the days of indie-rock giants like Built to Spill and the Elephant 6 collective, all while propelling the genre forward.

"Blueberry Skies" is the first single off Loser Company's forthcoming EP of the same name, releasing December 7 on all streaming platforms. Catch the band perform at Harvard & Stone on November 17. Juan Rodríguez

On "Rattlesnake," Lauren Rocket empowers you to live life in the moment

"Rattlesnake," Lauren Rocket's new single, captures the pleasure of feeling alive and adventurous. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist's latest solo endeavor subverts rock 'n' roll tropes, sweetening her blustery guitar passages with an empowering anthem that flirts with pop's experimental possibilities. "Wild nights/playing games in the dark," Rocket sings in a whispery croon, living through life with infectious zest. If "Rattlesnake" comes across as fully-formed, there's a good reason for this. Having led the power-pop group ROCKET, and toured with bands like The Pink Spiders and Night Terrors of 1927, she's taken from those experiences to mold a musical persona that is all her own.
