Meernaa releases "Wildest Eyes" videos + announces debut EP

There are few words that can describe the intimate, synth-psych sounds of Oakland’s Meernaa. Or, perhaps, too many: fresh, relevant, relaxing, soulful—maybe, at times, even solipsistic. But these only seem to scratch the surface. So, let’s just focus on their newest video, “Wildest Eyes” (streaming below), which is also the first single to be released off their forthcoming debut EP Strange Life. Both track and video alike soothe, while something stirs under the surface; there’s an anxiousness that can’t quite be pinned down. An urgency that pushes itself to the forefront of front woman Carly Bond’s jazzy vocals, and then pulls away just as quickly as it came. It’s exciting, it’s new, and it’s Oakland doing what it does best: inspiring innovative art. The rest of the EP will be out in June, which just can’t come soon enough. - Lilly Milman





New Track: "Mind Eraser" - CRUISR

The day has been dreary, but the music doesn’t need to coincide. “Mind Eraser,” the new single from CRUISR, exuberantly addresses the necessity of moving forward and leaving an individual/situation in the rearview. The pleasant, energetic approach jumps over the emotional/mental hurdles, and dares you to get down rather than wallowing in the downs. Hit that reset button, and enjoy.

New Track: "The Beach" - Tulpa

The trio of Tulpa recently shared its debut EP Cupiter. “The Beach” coasts into its closing position, with a head-in-the-clouds, self-examining point of view. It's easy to throw on the shades, and leave it all behind with this one. But before setting yourself adrift, join them this evening at The Pharmacy, where they'll be sharing a billing with Swim Camp, Tiger Castle, and Blinds. (Photo by Sexton Photography)

New Coping Skills LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Worst New Music, the new LP from Coping Skills, is now available digitally and on cassette via Citywide Records. The duo embraces a keen self-evaluating perspective. Their ability to address the mundane nature of routine, while exploring the quandaries of daily life transform what can be viewed as bummer songs into euphoric anthems. Coping Skills are scheduled to be musical guests as part of the Darlings show on Friday, April 20 at Good Good Comedy Theatre. (Photo by Josh Stewart)





New Track: "Going To My Brother’s House" - Maxwell Stern

Perusing unfamiliar territory, “Going To My Brother’s House,” the latest single from Maxwell Stern (of Signals Midwest), glides in a roundabout, acoustic-folk stroll. Along the song’s evolution, it traveled the globe from Philly to Pittsburgh, to Australia, to Chicago, where it was augmented by Mother Evergreen to become what we hear now. There’s an unassuming nature as the tune guides you down a path. Picking up additional instrumental pieces along the way fully fleshes out its details, as the catchy, lyrical string tongue-ties. There’s a familiarity in realizing when you're out of your comfort zone and the aspects that you notice in those circumstances. You can find Stern opening things up at Kung Fu Necktie on Friday, April 27, as part of a billing that also includes Shannen Moser, Port Arthur, and Friends of the Bog.
