Talker drops new emo-pop lush video for "Suck Up"

Celeste Tauchar has ramped up musical output under the Talker moniker over the past several months; with the music video for the new single "Suck Up", that tornado of activity continues with mercy. Tauchar's addictive emo-pop shines in the new song, the lyrics of which discuss identity, self-reflection, and self-worth. The music video shows Tauchar in various facets of her identity, taking us from the rock star to the shy person alone at a party to the person trapped in a flurry of colorful lights and inexplicable emotion. "Suck Up" will appear on Talker's new EP Wax, which drops next month. Take a look at the music video for "Suck Up" below. - Will Sisskind

LA-based collective releases compilation ode to Green Day's "Insomniac"

Alex Johnson of power pop project Why Dogs Why has collected a mass group of indie and DIY friends to celebrate 25 years since Green Day released Insomniac, one of the band's seminal albums. The compilation record, Jesus Christ Supermarket: A Compilation to Celebrate 25 Years of Green Day’s Insomniac, contains covers of every song on Green Day's 1994 record, including The Rare Occasions covering "Armatage Shanks", Cheekface taking on "Walking Contradiction", and Kid Carrion mixing up "Brain Stew". Folks outside of LA take on some tracks as well, including Tulsa-based Team Chino's take on "Jaded". Take a listen to the compilation album below, and enjoy one of Green Day's best all over again. - Will Sisskind

Eyedress releases retro-romantic Valentine's Day track "Let's Skip To The Wedding"

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Eyedress has put out a new song called "Let's Skip To The Wedding", along with its video. Idris Vicuña, the mind behind Eyedress, goes full force with his dream-pop stylings that smack of Ariel Pink and Drab Majesty. His droning voice hums over twinkling synths and lo-fi guitars in a simple ode to love that lasts just under two minutes. Short, sweet, and filled with the kind of vibe that'll make you want to fall in love, Eyedress -- who just moved back to California from spending time in Manila -- is bound to make Los Angeles fall in love with them. Take a look at the video for "Let's Skip To The Wedding" below. - Will Sisskind
