It twists and turns, peels and scrapes, and the animated video is an incredible visual representation of all the glorious (often gross) mayhem at hand.
As Mezzanine Swimmers head out on the road with Dean Cercone, we have the premiere of the "Cinnamon Gurl" music video, directed by Conrad Burnham of International Winners.
The solo project of Thrin Vianale, their songs and gentle but never broken, sparse but fully realized. Schwartz Goes To Heaven is a stunning album built on gorgeous melancholy and a knack for surprises.
It's a tremendous video that captures the character driven spirit of Longface via a psychedelic journey on a bunny (or at least a bunny at heart). The feeling is somewhere between sinister and carefree, a space the band's music rests comfortably in.
Impressive drum fills backdrop hypnotic melodies, and over time the group find calm in the center of this chaos, only to tear it all down moments later, concluding the track with a stop-start, free-jazz freakout.
Last year Cincinnati's Smut released their full length debut, End Of Sam-soon. It's a resilient record that trickles with the best parts of shoegaze and an undercurrent of fuzzy power-pop. In celebration of their upcoming dates, the band are sharing a new video for Sam-soon stand-out "Rosewater".
Introducing Trouble In Mind’s latest addition, Ethers, who are releasing an album that’s dirty and gritty and ready to be the soundtrack of out-too-late-on-a-Tuesday Summer nights. The four-piece features members from Radar Eyes, Outer Minds, and Heavy Times.
Blank Space contains some of his most stripped-down and beautiful recordings yet. Recorded with what sounds like a four-track, there is a gentle warmth that permeates throughout the record.
Back in January, Winters treated us to "The Future District," a solo effort that stripped everything back and confirmed what we all knew, she's a gifted songwriter in any capacity, context be damned. That song has since been mysteriously pulled from Bandcamp, but we're happy to present it once more.
The emotions to be felt in High Pony's sophomore album Nothing Here Is Mine are unwound and rampant with anxious energy. There's nothing tidy about it, the band are taking the backseat and letting everything spill out.
The quintet's album, Blatant, is just that - there's about as much subtlety here as a hammer to the skull. Self described as "weak hardcore," Dan Shaw and company have built themselves a deviant post-punk record thick with wit and abrasive tonality, skewering everything from the far-right to environmental disasters.
On “Setting In”, Tim decides to slow things down a bit, adding more space and atmosphere to an ever-widening sound palette; evoking the bittersweet longing of driving on a desolate highway towards an unknown future.
Scaphe's founders talk about their new album and their decision to truly trash the mold and create a self-serving masterpiece above all else. As the saying goes, "in order to lead an orchestra, you must first turn your back to the crowd."
"Old Magnolia" and its eye-catching video, take the idea of Dusk's transportive powers and runs with it, bringing you as deep into the country mindset as possible. Traveling from red barns to monster trucks, bolo ties to bald eagles, this one plays up their surroundings with gorgeous images and the band's slow-dripped twang.
Temporary Eyesore, the eponymous new record from Zoe Wyner (halfsour), is another entry into the Anxiety Pop Records canon of spry, essential rock records. A brief 13 minutes of existential riffing, the album is a diaristic trip with specific emotions religiously and cathartically displayed.
With her band Honeyrude, Jess Ledbetter makes hard charging reverb soaked rock. She’s recently put out Slow Desert, a new solo EP on Shifting Sounds that has a softer tint to the music.
The band, which features current and former members of Nine of Swords, Ted Nguyent, and Loose Tooth, released their self-titled debut EP today, a furiously skronky beast of hardcore yelps and tangled chord progressions.
At its core, “Had A Fantastic” sees Mike Bellis leading the band through the kind of song that’s seemingly built for humid summer days, as the oppressive heat gives way to a relief that’s both earned and fleeting.
