Calla – Testify

When to listen: if you’re not (yet) into metal but feel like you could use some aggressiveness and energy to your ears. Aurelio Valle and his band are capable of the most destroying yet slow tracks.

You’ll like it if you like: Forget Cassettes, Come, Mogwai (their noisiest side).

Other Lives – Dark Horse

When to listen: Whenever. They can sound like both your best and your worst day, although it’s probably not what you’d listen to if you feel like burning down a whole city.

You’ll like it if you like: Midlake, Fleet Foxes, Jonathan Wilson and any sophisticated folkish band that sounds beautiful and epic.
