Sean Henry's A Jump from the High Dive out now


Sean Henry's A Jump from the High Dive is out today! On his second proper full-length, childhood and adulthood coalesce to display his most confident and animated work to date. Don't miss Sean and the band on tour throughout the US with Spirit Was this November!

"a perfect slice of throwback slacker alt-rock, the sound of a slowly twisting radio dial in 1996. It leads with its melodies, all of which are engineered to burrow into your brain, but it will leap off into shameless funk breakdowns and pop-rock riffs at a moment's notice.” - the FADER

“…Sean Henry is completing his transition from DIY pop rock savant (first as Boy Crush, and then in the short-lived High Pop) to a fully-realized songwriting auteur.”- Post-Trash

"Through lenses of wonky pop, alt-rock and even hip-hop, Henry’s heartfelt, charming songs feel like they’ve been unearthed rather than created."- Paste Magazine

Great Grandpa shares Four of Arrows


Great Grandpa's anxiously awaited sophomore full-length Four of Arrows, is out today! Alight with expansive instrumentation and vulnerable lyrical contemplations of one's life course, the record was born from a turn of creative introspection as the band found themselves isolated after relocating to different states following their 2017 release, Plastic Cough. Realized in bursting, expressive technicolor Four of Arrows marks an exciting sonic and emotional turning point for Great Grandpa. Be sure to catch the band on tour this fall on dates with Vivian Girls, Dump Him, Trace Mountains and more!


“…it’s clear from the start that Four Of Arrows is a massive level-up. You get the sense that this is the band that Great Grandpa have always wanted to be” - Stereogum naming it the Album of The Week

“Impressionistic, emotionally exhaustive, and delivered through a stream of lush harmonies, it takes the terrestrial promise of their debut and throws it into the cosmos” - The FADER

“The result is their boldest work yet, thick slabs of guitars conjuring up an atmosphere that sits as a moody backdrop for Alex Menne’s heady, enthralling lead vocal” - Gold Flake Paint

Hovvdy's balanced expressions between residual nostalgia and murmuring secrecy are worn in beautifully on Heavy Lifter." - Exclaim!

Sean Henry shares "You Fall Away," last single from upcoming record


Sean Henry has shared "You Fall Away," the last single to be released in anticipation of A Jump From The High Dive, out November 1st. Be sure to catch Sean Henry supporting Spirit Was throughout the US in November!

"'You Fall Away' is droopy and melodic, like a wilting flower or a fading sunset. Henry has hurt in his voice, each word sinking into the inevitability of a departure." - Stereogum

"The song’s soft touch and nostalgic tones invite the listener in, despite its forlorn, heartbroken subject matter. The guitars and vocals capture the restless youth of mid-90s, crackling with a coiled energy that erupts in a final-minute guitar solo." - Post-Trash

Listen to Hovvdy's Final Single from Heavy Lifter "Mr. Lee"


Hovvdy have released the fourth and final single from Heavy Lifter — "Mr. Lee." It's a charming sonic turn for Hovvdy, carried along by piano. Heavy Lifter is out October 18th!

Of the song, Hovvdy's Charlie Martin says "I imagined Mr. Lee on the Mississippi gulf coast where my dad and grandparents live. It's a beautiful and sad place. The song is about how significant very small things can be. Sometimes it takes courage to be kind to yourself. It's really amazing when little events coalesce and all the sudden you feel better, awake, a vibrant piece of the bigger picture."

Great Grandpa shares new single "Bloom"

Today Great Grandpa shares "Bloom," the last single until their sophomore LP Four of Arrows is released on October 25th. In conversation with NYLON, Patrick Goodwin shared some of their songwriting goals for the tune - “the first being to write a song for [bassist] Carrie [Goodwin] that combined many of her favorite genres/artists—’90s pop-country, Tom Petty, Third Eye Blind, Taylor Swift, the Beatles, etc.—into something cohesive. The second being to capture this elusive spirit present in many of Petty’s great songs, where the underlying melancholy emotion is gilded or masked by joyful melodies and arrangements then slowly revealed in the lyrics.”

"an anthem for your inner underdog" - NYLON

"the Seattle band are seriously leveling up...the song is everything that this new version of Great Grandpa do so well, mixing sharp pop sensibilities with rootsy, emo-tinged indie rock" - Stereogum

"Covering an expansive sonic range that includes indie-folk, bombastic garage-rock, and serene chamber-pop, “Digger” is an enthralling ballad that hits stratospheric emotional heights."

Sean Henry debuts single "Rain, Rain" + Announces newest LP


Sean Henry announces second full length, A Jump From the High Dive, out November 1st. Born from adult recollections of childhood musings of canceled little league baseball games, lead single "Rain, Rain" is drenched in nostalgia and reintroduces Henry with a newly revived sound. Reflecting on the inspiration behind the album Henry describes what life looked when the record was realized - “I was doing a lot of couch surfing, living where I grew up in a Connecticut ghost town and touring around the country. I was all over the place. Amidst trying to sort things out, I wanted to make my version of a pop album.”


"‘Rain Rain’ teases a subtle shift in trajectory from the grungy, grittier elements. Here [he] leans into a marginally cleaner tone. The melody sounds almost like a solo-career George Harrison riff; an easy but surprising progression, a shinier high end, and a fondness for a minor drop. Henry’s guitar sounds like rain feels. It’s cooling." - popbollocks

Welcoming Long Beard to DDW — Listen to "Sweetheart"


Long Beard has joined Double Double Whammy and will release an incredible full-length album Means To Me — Listen to the lead single "Sweetheart."

"Leslie Bear crafts wistful soft rock that sticks to your bones... 'Sweetheart' [is] a pensive dream of falling back in touch with someone who made an impact some time ago." —The FADER

Of the song, Leslie Bear says "'Sweetheart' is a nostalgic song that shifts between the distant past and the present. It's a letter to someone you've lost touch with from a long time ago, finding some small connection to their life with regards to yours- how the thought of them resurfaces every once in a while and how they may have shaped the person you've become while wondering if you've had a similar impact on them. It's a jangly/indie pop song reminiscent of the 90s with a chimey lead guitar that weaves in and out. It's written almost as a stream of consciousness with a heavy daydream mood."

Means To Me is available for pre-order now!

The limited edition "Bone in Clear" LP is limited to 300 copies.

Florist have announced a new full-length record Emily Alone.


Emily Alone is a collection of songs made by Florist songwriter Emily Sprague during a time of great stillness and isolation with the self. An attempt to capture the dark spaces between change and acknowledge their beauty. It is a natural, isolated, and momentary tangent away from the otherwise collaborative project that is Florist, while still maintaining the documentary nature of the band that, like all things, is a mutable entity in this universe.

Hatchie has released the final single from Keepsake. "Obsessed" is released alongside a video of endearing footage from their most recent full US tour. Keepsake will be available everywhere on June 21st!

"As she sings in a whispery voice, guitars cushion her voice, fading in and out like a crossover of stringy ’90s indie rock, gentle shoegaze, and electronic dream pop."
—Consequence of Sound

“Obsessed” pushes the singer further into shoegaze-y territory, with fuzzy guitar and searing lyrics reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine and the Cocteau Twins: “Hung myself out to dry till you let me in/That’s when I knew I’d clip my wings, do anything for you.”
—Rolling Stone

Gemma have released their final single "Til We Lose The Feeling" and it's the most electrifying one yet. Felicia and Erik wrote a short essay about the track and the movement and catharsis it creates.

Felicia and Erik of Gemma wrote an essay for Talkhouse about the song:

“‘Til We Lose The Feeling” is my love song to New York: A celebration, a thank you for knocking me down and lifting me up day after day. I’m fascinated by how this city is romanticized on television and the big screen, and I wanted this song to reflect that magical instance of being whisked away in it. New Yorkers take so much pride in the hustle and people latch onto the idea of this intangible pulsating energy in the air. I grew up in Manhattan and one of my favorite things is to walk miles and miles without a destination. It’s nice to take it all in and feel the city breathe. —Felicia Douglass

“'Til We Lose the Feeling” has become an important part of the live Gemma show, functioning as the closing song of our set. After the standard six to seven songs of a typical New York show, it’s our last bid for some catharsis with the audience, or as Felicia puts it so well, to “find a way around what’s draining us.” And it almost always works, for me at least. —Erik Gundel

Listen to Gemma's New Song "Miss U"

Gemma's new single "Miss U" from the upcoming full-length Feeling's Not A Tempo is now available everywhere! It's conversational, sparkly, and will definitely get caught in your head.

"[Douglass'] voice sounds absolutely magical here — the way she slips in and around all of these different attitudes: defiance and vulnerability and humor and resolution. The song is conversational but direct, and the twinkling fervor that Douglass and Gundel build up around those threads of thought is dreamy but solid." —Stereogum

"It’s a bouncy pop tune that finds vocalist Felicia Douglass keeping her subject at arm’s length: “I might miss you but I won’t show it,” she sings over skittering drums and swelling synths." —Paste Magazine

Listen on:

Preorder Feeling's Not A Tempo on Vinyl, CD, or cassette.
