“Mm. I love pop. Poppy pop pop. Here it goes down. Down into my belly.” – Milk Crate #107

New here? Welcome to our humble blog — Milk Crater. The name comes from a group of music loving individuals known for searching insatiably through record store milk crates to find the deep cuts.

We do things a little differently — in the best way possible. With each brand new song you listen to or watch on our site, we donate to charity: Direct Relief. Join us in making a positive impact through music discovery, you restless milk crater.

1“Calling Me” – Midnight Mystery Club

Genre: Indie Pop

Simply the easiest way to get up out of your chair and break into your happy dance. Inspired by late 70s and early 80s, Midnight Mystery Club are your late night traffic-free highway to Funky Town.

2“Porcelain Skyscraper” – Tiergarten

Genre: Indie Pop

Tiergarten is that band that found all of their instruments at the vintage pawn shop down the road. Then they went home and left us jealously scratching our heads thinking, “how’d they do that, with those?”

3“Techno Kids” – Delagoon

Genre: Indie Pop

The third reason in a row to not let the Thursday blues get to you. It’s as if Delagoon is here to reassure us that Friday is within smell. Hints of Declan McKenna give way to the most upbeat of 80s New Wave. This is probably one you can add to all of your playlists.

4“Moment” – Matt Reagan

Genre: Indie Pop

When you’re in the mood for retro flavor, but demand less Eurythmics and more Hall & Oates + Toto. I’d wrap Matt Reagan in with Tame Impala for best sounding modern band with 80s dream-pop influence.

5“Low Tide Love” – Tipling Rock

Genre: Indie Rock

It’s hard to feel bad when you’re listening to Tipling Rock. The happy-go-lucky pop rockers take no frills instrumentation and add a sense of unfamiliar-yet-super-appealing song structure to form an all-encompassing smile-inducer. There’s no grammar rule for using too many hyphens right?
