Singles Club: Porcelain Raft + The Stray Trolleys + Half Waif

Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you'll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes. Read on in the hopes of finding your musical love connection.

I was feeling blue today, and then I heard these three little numbers and all felt a bit more right with the world.


In my humble opinion, Porcelain Raft's "Big Sur" is nigh on perfection. This breathtaking piece of heart stoppage is truly the musical embodiment of the glorious California coastline. Melting waves of languid warmth cascade along, crescendos hitting like waves against the sand.

    


The Stray Trolleys is new to me, though they're not new by any means. While the band formed in 1979, the lovely folks of  Captured Tracks (bless them) will be reissuing Barricades & Angels in the very near future, and the teenage kicky, divinely catchy "Love Into Action" will be just one of the songs to fall for.




"My mood is a pendulum/I don't think you can handle it," warns Nandi Rose in Half Waif's mercurial "Severed Logic." Fractured but tender, the shapeshifting song is straight up enchanting.
