Swim Club Glad to finally hear that Seattle’s Cave Singers will release their third album, No Witch early next year. Its a follow up to their 2009 release ‘Welcome Joy,’ which to me was a fantastic entry in their body of work. This new album, No Witch, will be their first release under jagjaguwar, and it was produced by Randall Dunn, who recently worked with labelmates Black Mountain.) “Swim Club” is a warm folk track that shows off singer Pete Quirk’s signature raspy voice and the simplistic yet lush sounds of a folk band that make great music.

Heartbreaker Girls’ new EP Broken Dreams club released this week. The boys from San Francisco, wrote a follow up EP to their ’09 debut, Album, entitled Broken Dreams Club. As you might be able to discern from previous effort and released single, Heartbreaker, this EP is similarly, songs that are about relationships.
