THE A LIST (3.1.24)

10. "King Of Sweden" - Future Islands

Starlit, staple indie rock groups have been gracing us with a stellar, more strong than ever reemergent sound lately, and Future Islands is no exception.

Psychedelic synths encapsulate the tune from their full length, People Who Aren't There Anymore, released on January 26th.

9. "My Golden Years" - The Lemon Twigs

Beach Boys' sounding harmonies mixed throwback rock guitars, "My Golden Years" is a sped up lament of past blissful times. Long Island hailing The Lemon Twigs hit this one out of the park, channeling a sonic scape that can never be forgotten - only celebrated and refined.

8. "Nothing Like" - Mannequin Pussy

Philadelphia indie rock group Mannequin Pussy release a new track in congruence for their March 1st full length release I Got Heaven on Epitaph Records. Sultry vocals and bangin' distorted guitars make for a perfect sonic pairing. Check out their upcoming tour dates here (they'll be in Cleveland and Columbus next month).

7. "A Love International" - Khruangbin

Khruangbin is down from their #1 spot last week as they deliver a beautiful sweeping arrangement from their upcoming album ‘A LA SALA', out April 5th on Dead Oceans.

6. "Sinner" - The Last Dinner Party

Performative and catchy arrangements can be expected from indie rock British band The Last Dinner Party. Distinct lead guitar melodies make a statement in this track off their recent full length album, Prelude to Ecstasy (read Pitchfork's review here).

5."Fishbrain" - Mount Kimbie

Off Sunset Violet which was written in California's Yucca Valley and finished in London, UK based future garage band Mount Kimbie delivers "Fishbrain," which enters at #5 on our A List this week. Check tour dates on Stereogum here.


SPRINTS has maintained a consistent presence on our A List with this track for weeks now - with their in-your-face sonic scape of rebellious guitars that recount the tumultuous dynamic of obsession that makes us want to mosh pit in a basement.

3. "Butterfly Net" - Caroline Polacheck (Feat. Weyes Blood)

Magical, ethereal electro pop swan Caroline Polacheck collabs with epic Weyes Blood on this dreamy track, slowly building into a vocally chopped symphony towards the end. A beautiful arrangement, but we expect nothing less as they are regularly spinned artists on Inhailer!!

2. "When The Laughter Stops" - Yard Act (feat. Katy J Pearson)

Yard Act has been absolutely slaying lately (they just performed their banger "We Make Hits on Jimmy Fallon). Consistently delivering catchy delights, they arrive with a new entry this week on our Top 10 this week, this time with Katy J Pearson.

1. "Mood Ring" - Dehd

They've done it again! Jumping up from #2 last week is Dehd with their hit "Mood Ring." Fun fact: a big source of inspiration for the album was Charles Bukowski’s poem “The Laughing Heart.”

Same time next week? Thanks for joining us for this A List!
