The Dears’ promo people encouraged me to share this free download—“Blood,” from the band’s forthcoming album Degeneration Street—with you readers. I like The Dears, a shoegaze-ish pop rock band from Montreal, and have to say this song’s OK—it sounds a little ‘90s. Still, free music! Thanks, The Dears.

Jack Tatum’s indie pop revival
Wild Nothing is a one-man project of Brooklynite and Williamsburg, Va. native Jack Tatum. His music unapologetically harkens the twinkling melancholy of ’80s Britpop song and production qualities. In advance of a show at the Sunshine with Beach House, Tatum spoke with the Alibi about past, present and the definition of pop.
