Dave Mudie has been a sought after drummer for hire, and is the current timekeeper for Courtney Barnett. As it turns out, he is a damn good front man for his own project, L.A. Mood. We featured his EP Breakfast at Sassy's a couple of months ago (link), and he is back now with a single titled "Backyard"). A '70s road house rocker of a tune, we think it is just the right fuel for the start of our weekend. Perfect timing--thanks, Dave!
"Backyard" is a digital release via Hotel Motel Records.

Fabric Bear are Ryan Hunter, Callum Jones, Matt Graham, and Stewart Clark.
Today brings "Feather Soul", the second single by Swedish band Lilla Parasit. The band is a project of Are Engen Steinsholm of Melby, joined by Amanda Lindgren (Systraskap), David Svedmyr (Me and My Kites) and Jessica Klingsell. Signed to Rama Lama Records, they will release a mini album in 2020. The single is dreamy celebration of sibling bonds, buoyed by a sturdy and well-detailed arrangement, and has brought warmth and sunshine to us on a chilly November morning.

We look worldwide for interesting new indie music, but it would be foolish for us to ignore the talents in our backyard. Today we want to introduce you to a fine Seattle band named Night Hikes. For Chalice, the duo of Olivia Godby and Matthew Farrell craft evocative stories with dream pop and shoegaze textures. Perceptive lyricists and evocative vocalists, they provide an intimate soundtrack for late night listening. Our instincts tell us that we can expect a lot more good material from Night Hikes.
Chalice is out now as a digital release. See the Bandcamp link below.
