Hideout make paranoia fun on “Picture Falling” + play Baby's on 11.25

There’s always a calm before the storm, a moment of stillness that precedes the calamity of things falling apart - and New York’s Hideout knows the feeling in a personal capacity. Their new single, “Picture Falling” explores the intrinsic details of the moment before panic sets in - “the thoughts and feelings before the wave of paranoia washes over you,” according to guitarist and songwriter Gabriel Rodriguez (who is also a member of Cults’ live ensemble). That being said, in the spirit of art making lemonade from lemons, “Picture Falling” channels dread into fun, energetic indie rock, the song’s chorus a melodic vocal give-and-take between Rodriguez and Scarlett Stephenson-Connolly over jangle pop riffs and interpolated electronic drums.

As a whole, “Picture” is presented as heartfelt shared catharsis, a sigh of relief for those who have felt their life fall apart yet lived to tell the tale - perhaps presenting an opportunity, according to Rodriguez, to “take hold and laugh along the wild ride.” Hideout maturely recognizes that we cannot control the occasional afflictions of psychosis, but by throwing up our hands and accepting that which we cannot change, we are all able to derive some trace of pleasure from the unpredictability of this crazy thing called life. 

You can see Hideout live at Baby's All Right on November 25 opening for Montreal's The Beaches. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)


Hideout lands Berlin residency on Tuesdays in January, starting 01.03

Hideout, the solo project of Manhattan-based singer-songwriter Gabriel Rodriguez, will perform at Berlin in good old ex-Alphabet City on the first four Tuesdays in January, starting Tuesday the 3rd. This residency is one of many things Rodriguez has coming up in early 2017. For one, his sophomore album under the HIDEOUT name, titled 'So Many Hoops/So Little Time,' comes out on February 3rd. The first single, "I Got Your Message", is a melodious piece of indie pop with a tragic backstory. It's already received words of praise from Billboard, so fans of Rodriguez's music or his work with Cults have good reason to get excited. The band will also play Baby's All Right on Sunday January 15th, for those who can't make it out on a Tuesday night. - Will Sisskind


HIDEOUT announces sophomore LP + plays Baby's All Right on 11.30

Following the 2014 debut album ‘Rookie’, HIDEOUT (the solo project Gabriel Rodriguez, a live guitarist for Cults) is preparing to release his sophomore full length 'So Many Hoops/So Little Time’ in early 2017. “Doctor”, the first single off the record, initially draws attention with a cheerful electric guitar intro reminiscent of the more jangly bands from the psychedelic revival of the late '80s. A jumpy piano keeps the mood up, although the song's lyrics seem to  tap into the negative facets of our psychological processes. Ranging sonically and lyrically from whimsical space-pop to nostalgic singer-songwriter tracks, the album's essence is fused with the recent passing of Rodriguez’s brother. Listen to “Doctor” below and catch the band live at Baby's All Right on November 30th at Pavo Pavo's record release show. - Ashley Muniz
