"Don't Hold Me Now" - New Madrid

SOUNDS LIKE:

The Police on acid; cosmic spaz; slow burn punk

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE:

For their latest outing, this Athen's, GA based quartet has shed some of the clean lines and jangle of their 2014 debut Sunswimmer in favor of a more...enlightened sound. magnetkingmagnetqueen gets pretty far out (see the 11 minute + track "Guay Lo") but tracks like "Don't Hold Me Now" find the band striking a perfect balance between slacker indie-pop and some seriously heady sonic explorations.
