Submissions have picked up in the month of February, frankly at a brutal pace. While that's bad news for someone already behind, it's also a good thing. Without submissions, this place wouldn't be able to grow. What happens quite often is I will focus on one style of music, often guitar driven garage rock, and put blinders on, oblivious to this whole other world of music out there. All it takes is a gentle nudge now and again to awake me from my trance. One such recent instance is Oakland, California's Waterstrider. The 5-piece crafted the perfect art pop statement with their stunning new track 'Calliope', but what's surprising is that it's from a debut effort, the band's debut LP is still 6 weeks away. ‘Nowhere Now' is set for an April 6th/7th release date, pre-order here. Stream 'Calliope' below and then check out the video, it's my Song of the Day!
