Frog at Line of Best Fit

New York City’s Frog – an indie-country duo of Dan Bateman and Thomas White, not a squelchy amphibian – are sharing new single “Judy Garland” exclusively on Best Fit.

Named after the famous Wizard Of Oz actress, “Judy Garland” weaves together lilting vocal scales, glottal stops, falsettos and all manner of intriguing vocal tricks. As well as the mouth-based element, the track also features a blinding rhythm section, banjo background and lo-fi fuzz. It’s a wonderfully energetic, infectious summer tune, and despite sounding ever-so-slightly menacing at points, it’s deliciously sweet for the most part.

Kind Of Blah is out 25 May on Audio Antihero, and you can pre-order it here. Benjamin Shaw has provided the artwork.

Luxembourg Signal at Line of Best Fit

The Luxembourg Signal are a dream-pop band featuring members of Aberdeen and Trembling Blue Stars. With “Distant Drive,” the Los Angeles and London-based musicians serve up a summer-ready debut single.

The refreshing track blends energetic guitar and punchy drums with just enough early 90s shoegaze-inspired distortion to give the whole thing a squinting-in-the-desert-sun vibe. Dust off your Polaroid camera and put on your sunglasses; the repeated lyric “out here, life is better” makes this tune perfect for warm weather wandering.

“Distant Drive” is available via Shelflife for pre-order as a limited edition vinyl 7” released on 22 April. The single builds excitement for the band’s debut LP, arriving in late summer 2014.
