I am SORRY.
The last couple months have been crazy since I moved back to school, and because of that I've had less time for checking the blog e-mail. I've gotten tons of talented people sending me shit, and I haven't had the time to post a good portion of it. This is my making like Little Boots and remedying this shitty situation.
Here's thirteen artists I've really enjoyed from my e-mail, listed from oldest to newest.
Disclaimer: All of these artists deserve far longer write-ups; these accumulation posts won't be happening often if I have anything to say about it.
Like the White Stripes, but with a badass female leading instead of a man who occasionally looks like a badass female.
The Willowz - "Repetition"
Some lovely pop-y shoegaze-y garage-y goodness.
Polynya - "Calico"
The Forcefield Kids
Posted about these British rappers before, and they just released a new EP. And by "just" I mean they e-mailed it to me a month a go and I haven't posted it yet.
The Forcefield Kids - "Razorblades"
Another we wrote about a while a go, most recent single "Salacious Love" is probably their best work to date.
Blane Fonda - "Salacious Love"
Someone I really should've written about a long time a go (well, all of these people are). Spectacularly good indie rock.
Joshua Jesty - "Someone Worth Hurting"

Harper Simon - "Shooting Star"
Lovely, slightly electronic music.
Little Dragon - "Blinking Pigs"
Old World Vulture
A lot of interesting elements in this one, grasshopper. Part of a cool "single-a-month" promotion, too. Good news is that since I'm nearly a month late with this post, new single should be released soon.
Old World Vulture - "Benny"
SO MUCH SOUL IT NEEDS TO BE EXPRESSED IN ALL CAPS. Girl is straight up talented.
Nneka - "The Uncomfortable Truth"
Gorgeous indie electro-pop from Toronto. All of the facts in that previous sentence make me pre-destined to adore this band.
Digits - "Nonstop"
This is frighteningly good folk music. Frighteningly.
The Heligoats - "Turn Down The Offer"
This is slightly weirder frighteningly good folk music.
Coke Rats - "Earth Girl"
Yura Yura Teikoku
They're signed to DFA, so obviously I adore them.
Yura Yura Teikoku - "Dekinai"
