Gary Sleith Not sure if this is named after the comic or movie, but bonus points if that's the case! This is really great..achingly cool shoegazey-indie with beautiful vocals. Favorite track: Ghost World.

Chasé I stumbled upon Strange Relations a few yrs ago right here on bandcamp, and I was immediately in love with this album (bought it on cassette obv).
It's hard not to take notice of Casey Sowa's dynamic crooning, but the draw for me is also the tremendous songwriting. The allure in this self-described "diary rock" is in the emotive (at times painful and yearning) confessional lyrics, and also the carefully crafted pop hooks, which work very well together.

Don't sleep on this Twin Cities power trio! Favorite track: Or Telepathy.
