Singles Club: Lean Year + The Max Tribe + Kelsey Kerrigan

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.

Ethereal city folk, that's how I like to think of Lean Year. This Richmond outfit keeps it on the quiet side, but their quiet is definitely powerful. Intricately-worked and beautifully nuanced, magic is definitely in the air with "Come and See." 

Boston's The Max Tribe takes a long look at the past with their trippy, towering nugget "Yellow Pages." Smoky, whiskey-coated vocals lead the way into the Tribe's dark den of vintage psych nostalgia, a plush and luxuriant place to while away some time.  

Plain-spoken and a little sarcastic, Kelsey Kerrigan's "Good Times" is a bittersweet listen. "I wish I knew that you weren't into me," Kerrigan laments ruefully. This lass's scuzzy pop has been described as a little bit Best Coast and a little bit Courtney Barnett, and I won't argue on either count.
