Singles Club: AUTOBAHN + Ezra Furman + Salad Boys

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.

The sound of a lit fuse, AUTOBAHN's "Execution/Rise" is a study in combative, willful noise. With a nod to the phoenix, the song's message is described by the band as "a reference to being punished for one's sins, but rising again." A masterstroke of unexpectedly hip-shaking, industrial psych rebellion.   

"I know the past is the past," Furman sings, "but then the present's nothing without it." A new standard for Americana, Ezra Furman's "Love You So Bad" creates memories from memories, love among the everyday. Strings reminiscent of The Magnetic Fields and some serious pop chops meld perfectly with Furman's flair for flamboyance. This is an incredibly relatable, not to mention lovable, little ditty indeed.  

"Exaltation" is nothing if not sonically idyllic. With their latest single, New Zealand's Salad Boys have moved past salad days and into more serious territory - but not without keeping their sound pitch perfectly pastoral. So much heavenly jangle, so little time.
