Booty Feet "Cabrera"

Soulful, surfy, bouncy and poppy,  Booty Feet's new track "Cabrera" is the kind of song that shows up on the opening scene of a high school movie about the last day of school.  For a band that's not even a year old yet, the subtle details to their song-writing set this band apart from other indie rock bands that have been doing it way longer.

Rey Lopez
Elnuh "May 2 June"

Like gliding through a dream about surfing California waves, Elnuh's "May 2 June" is a echoey psychedelic indie rock gem that's more laid back then a afternoon nap in in July. Fronted by Elena Lopez, who's played in a number of projects including Octahedron and Baby Bangs, Elnuh is described as the kind of music Lopez writes in the middle of the night when she can't fall asleep. Pretty appropriate, if you ask us.

Barrera and the Hot Springs "Charlotte"

If you weren't already thinking about how comfortable your pillow is from Elnuh's "May 2 June" naptime-vibes, Americana/folk group Barrera and the Hot Springs are sure to get you cozy and sleepy – hell, I'm falling asleep as I write this little review. But it's not because "Charlotte" is at all boring, on the contrary, the opening track of their debut EP Spit Subject is textured with rich harmonies and electric guitar intervals that keep things interesting through all five minutes and twenty-four seconds.
