Veiny Hand's debut is packed with both adrenaline and sluggish crashes, a scuzzy trip down the rabbithole. We're excited to share the premiere of their record ahead of the band's tour dates with La Luz.
Rhode Island quartet Edgar Clinks often blend odd song structures with distinctive affability, and the video for “Algal Bloom,” off of their most recent full length reinforces this idea with gusto.
The Boston based duo combines two of the city's finest DIY-minded musicians, Jesse Weiss (Palehound, Grass Is Green, Spook The Herd) and Jack Pombriant (We Can All Be Sorry), a pairing as natural as milk and cereal.
Footings are back and headed out on the road in support of their upcoming Spring Tape EP, a collection of new songs and one very gorgeous Fugazi cover.
Whimpers is described as "twisted country" but Dimples' music is cerebral and cinematic, cosmically experimental, and utterly leisure.
Wild Pink is a band that sounds like someone you know but you can’t remember who. A mash-up of all the things you love about all your favorite bands. They’re simply a rock band putting out cleverly titled rock songs about all the seemingly mundane things that rule most of our lives.
Spew's debut is unrelenting and thoroughly abrasive. Built on dizzying menace and jagged opposition, the duo's technical ability is unquestionably phenomenal but it's their destructive spirit that really shines in only the worst of ways.
The video for Amy Klein’s “Parallels” utilizes shifting, prismatic, visualizer-esque, graphics to match the sonic angularity of the track, with the end result being a hauntingly rendered visual companion.
Excellent Boston rockers Halfsour are releasing Land of Discarded Ideas, an album that was previously released exclusively as a tour tape. This re-release, via Disposable America, is accompanied by an incredible album-length video (albeit, it’s an 11 minute album) in high bricolage style.
The sophistication of Railings’ jazzy progressions is rare in a climate of DIY music so widely indebted to twee and punk music.
Allston's Beeef rep their city proudly, embracing all their community has to offer, trash noise, meter cops, and all. Set to release their full length debut A BEEEF CD on February 9th, the quartet have taken it upon themselves to write an anthem to their hometown, "Dogshit Paradise".
Whether it's your first introduction to the band or just a new look into their majestic brand of sultry guitar pop, the "Mistakes" video, directed by Sam Kuhn, is stunning when paired with Poppies' slow drawn melodies and fainting disposition.
When we last checked in with the band they were sharing the slick warped pop of "Lost In The Cosmos" but "Unpack" (Juniper Branches' lead single) takes a look back to a less polished time when Sharks' Teeth was still the solo bedroom project of Tyler Scurlock.
While Trevisan is no stranger to noise, SLUG finds him spending time with ambient folk soundscapes. Gone is the wall of reverb and instead filtered loops build on each other.
"Claims Nonexistence" is the records' first single, a heavy sludge fest that revs up with a stuttering introduction and tears forward with a blanket of guitar noise.
For Evelyn feels as if it's wrapped in cozy layers of fuzzy pastel gauze, with sweet tape samples, dreamy guitars, and a wide-ranging host of other well-placed sounds backing his expressive voice.
I Went to the Mall Yesterday and I Got Sick is not a "feel good" album. There is no "sunshine" to be found anywhere near. Instead, DiCaprio are mining the depths of outward despair with anti-social anthems and an unflinching pessimistic outlook.
"City Of No" is a ragged anti-gentrification anthem that rocks itself into a bit of a stupor. Recorded in the band's practice space and the Vancouver Public Library, there's a lo-fi haze that coats their mangled pop, working to the band's advantage.
Csehak's wiry guitar grooves blend seamlessly with Chadwick's electronic touches, combining together to create a sound somewhere between cosmic funk and garage-soul. As the duo let their trip evolve and squirm in disjointed glee (joined once again by Weyes Blood's background vocals), their triumphant boogie soars into a realm of untapped bliss.
Built on a surf pop riff and retro charm, Okusami's vocals quickly steal the show with an anthem for anyone who is tired of being walked over.
