Matt Maeson’s new track Hallucinogenics is by far better than any psychotropic substance. The rhythmic, homely alt strummer is wonderfully infectious and earthy fervent. The NYC based Virginia singer songwriter, who’s heading out on tour with Bishop Briggs this spring, will be dropping a new EP named The Hearse on April 27th via Neon Gold / Atlantic Records. Hallucogenics is his first song of the year, and its accompanying video is a dark meditation on own’s own limits. Maeson explained to Billboard that Hallucinogenics was written during a dark time for him after touring.

“I’d worked very hard to get my life back on track after years of bad decisions at that point… I was so drained and after everyone went home I stayed in Seattle to unwind,” Maeson says. “One of the nights I just kind of broke and made a lot of decisions that I regret.” Download/stream Maeson’s exceptional return to the new music scene, here.

If it’s a warm, hearty slice of cinematic alt pop and sentimental coastal rock you’re craving for, I suggest you turn your attention to Devon band Tuesday Syndicate and their disarming new single, Hourglass, out tomorrow on May Day Music. Its husky twirling, dulcet lifting effusion of emotion-strewn magnificence has drawn comparisons to Mumford & Sons as well as James Bay. Tuesday Syndicate originally formed as an acoustic folk outfit five years ago. The UK band is said to be greatly influenced by their coastal surroundings, and they’re out on a mission to evoke the rousing splendor of the sea in their impassioned sonic creations.
