Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs

Fans of The Horrors and Toy may already have encountered the London band with a fine grasp on classic art-rock, psych, punk and garage rock. The Edwyn Collins-produced debut single “I Watch You” (due for release later in the month on Heavenly) is a thumping, soaring, giddy introduction to the band’s sound.

Foxygen

A duo hailing from Olympia, Washington and New York City, Foxygen’s Sam France and Jonathan Rado are getting a lot of attention on the back of their sprawling, grandstanding, classic rock and pop. Check out “Shuggie” from their forthcoming “We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic” album and prepare to get foxy.

Swearin’

Sassy punk rock with monster hooks is what’s on the agenda with Brooklyn four-piece Swearin’. There’s a cheeky, youthful bubblegum-pop swing to the band’s debut album recently released on the Salinas label, especially on “Here to Hear” and “Movie Star”. Currently touring with Japandroids – now that’s what we call a double-bill.
