Singles Club: Cut Worms + Lazyeyes + S.M. Wolf

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.

It's no secret that Cut Worms has a crush on the sounds of decades gone by. The divine "Cash for Gold" references all sorts of touchstones in a reverential, affectionate way, jangling along in its irrepressible, irresistible way. The man behind Cut Worms, Max Clarke, has a voice made for those times (and these, too), a warm, rambling sound that spins a heck of a sonic yarn. And now, I've got a crush on Cut Worms.

Hearing new Lazyeyes makes me more than a little bit giddy. This Brooklyn outfit has been on my radar for a little while now, and they've obviously been keeping busy lately. "Echoes," the title track from their forthcoming debut record on EggHunt, is a skittering, dizzying eruption of all things frantic, fuzzed-up, and wonderful. At times almost brutal, "Echoes" is one heck of a how do you do.

From Indianapolis comes the dreamt, soothing song stylings of S.M. Wolf, psychedelic folk pop makers extraordinaire. "The Station" is a jaunty, fuzzy little ray of sonic sunshine, full of nostalgia and earnestness, one of those songs you can't help but smile while listening to. Basically, it's catchy as fuck.
