Singles Club: Crush + Patsy's Rats + Rich Aucoin

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.

There's something rather ethereal about the fuzzed-up dreamgaze of Austria's Crush. "Blue Colored" is a heavenly haze of smoldering vocals and fanciful fuzz, and the song proves to be an intoxicating four minutes.

Formed in Portland, Patsy's Rats serves up some breathless, fist-pumping goodness straight outta the late 1970s with "Is It Alright?" For a band that has yet to release an LP, this twosome has a pretty good thing going. The song hearkens back to the days of tight acid wash jeans, leather jackets, and feathered hair; a time when life was, in some ways, a lot easier and a lot more fun. Patsy's Rats has the fun part down pat, though, that's for damn sure.

There's a whole lot happening in Rich Aucoin's "The Dream." Between Aucoin's breathy, cooing lilt, a slow motion soundscape that's a throwback to girl group golden days, and an underlying sense of the otherworldly, this little ditty's a treat to listen to.
