This week on The Saturday Alternative, we started things off by getting grungy with Greys, a post-punk band out of Toronto. We heard new music from Bassh, a new band made up of members of Matrimony and Band of Horses. Their sound is a nice blend of soaring synth-pop and sprawling americana. We did a whole lot of rocking out throughout the show with bands like Baroness, Thunderbitch (Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes) and Battles, and we got our groove on with new music from Kisses and Empress Of. We also checked out some exciting new Baltimore music from shoegazers Wildhoney and singer songwriter Dave Heumann (of Arbouretum).

2015 is turning out to be the year of drummers releasing incredible solo albums. First, former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman released his brilliant sophomore album as Father John Misty, and now, Foxygen drummer Shaun Flemming has released a new full length album of beautifully and meticulously arranged, heavily 60’s and 70’s inspired, psychedelic pop and soul music as Diane Coffee. The album is called Everybody’s a Good Dog and it was our Fitting Room album this week.
