The Radio Cure | Volume 1.3

Barbie Hatch

The Radio Cure provides you a smattering of great tracks (all at once!) to cure you of your radio blues. Burn 'em on a mix CD, and there you have it. 

Barbie Hatch - Stars
It's like Best Coast and She & Him had a love child. Barbie Hatch's electro-indie vibe is seriously mellowing us out. The debut album, Hypertrophic Heart, is out June 28th on Spectrophonic Sound.

BOBBY - Groggy
This is a sonic lullaby for the masses, and so we feel the track is so very appropriately named. BOBBY is touring with Thao + Mirah this summer, and the band's debut album is out June 21st via Partisan Records.

Blue Skies for Black Hearts - Majoring in the Arts
A throwback to '60s guitar-heavy pop, Blue Skies for Black Hearts is sounding like summer to us. Embracing the Modern Age is out now.

Marissa Nadler - The Sun Always Reminds Me Of You
A dusty, back roads drifter, this track is just gorgeous. And we never mind some pedal steel, either. Nadler's touring with Timbre Timbre this June to support her upcoming, self-titled album release on June 14th via Box of Cedar.

Southeast Engine - New Growth
Dad rock, schmad rock. If you loved Wilco's Sky Blue Sky, you're gonna love this song. The horn section is just a bonus. The new album, Canary, is out now.
Southeast Engine - New Growth

The Shivers - Love Is In The Air
This track is being touted as a "new summer slow jam," and we know this is true from its gratuitous use of the (kinda creepy) word, "underwear." The Shivers' new album, More, is out now via Silence Breaks.

The Natural Shocks - Heavier Than Heavy
Coming from Toronto, The Natural Shocks' first single from the band's new album is just straight-up indie-pop bliss. Complete With Comfortable Lighting comes out June 9th.

Kids on a Crime Spree - Sweet Tooth
Oakland's Kids On A Crime Spree keep the pop light and the lyrics appropriately moody, hand clapping their way through their upcoming LP
