The Alternative Weekly Roundup is a column where our staff plugs a variety of new releases in a concise, streamlined format. Albums, singles, videos, and live sets. Check back each Monday to see what we were jamming the week prior.

Aaron West & The Roaring Twenties — “Just Sign the Papers”

Indie folk band Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties shared “Just Sign the Papers,” a track that details the wrenching, but liberating process of undergoing a divorce. It’s from their upcoming album that will be released May 10.

The Bird Hour — “Jackie”

If you’re in the mood for some riff-heavy post-punk, The Bird Hour’s got you covered. New single “Jackie” is a four-minute romp through crunchy riffs and catchy, somewhat twangy hooks. Weird combination, but it works.

Prince Daddy & The Hyena — “i lost my life” / “Lauren”

After much anticipation, Prince Daddy and the Hyena have finally released new music. “I Lost My Life” begins stripped and barren, but escalates to the chaotic sound the band is known for. In “Lauren,” the band produced a music video inspired by the theme songs to 90s sitcoms.  Several people make cameos, including Kississippi’s Zoe Reynolds and Oso Oso’s Jade Lilitri.

Jimmy Lo Fi — “Apricots and Onions” 

Chill fast jam “Apricots and Onions” is the first single from Jimmy Lo Fi of The Sonder Bombs. With this track, slight folk and indie come together to describe love and a very distinct smell I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered. Either way, this single deserves a listen this week.

Future Teens — “Emotional Bachelor”

Bummer pop group Future Teens released a new single called “Emotional Bachelor.” It details longing to be on speaking terms with someone, but not knowing if doing so would be wise.

Cat Geography — Keepsake 

Cat Geography just dropped their debut album Keepsake, a 20-minute emo-indie romp replete with Avatar: The Last Airbender references and acoustic interludes. It’s a blast and you won’t want to miss it.
