Edan Archer hits a tattoo parlor in new music video "Bad Imitation Of Something Good"

 Folks- you're in for a wild ride in Edan Archer's new music video, "Bad Imitation Of Something Good." The song is a light-hearted folk/rock song with crunchy guitar riffs and a double-clap drum rhythm, but it's the video that really shines. Though filmed entirely on an iPhone, according to the press release, this visual is far more stunning than you might imagine. Archer hits a diner, an arcade and a tattoo parlor (don't worry, all the tattoos in the video are temporary). "You want a good woman by your side / who puts her toothpaste cap on tight" sings Archer in the chorus, and honestly, it makes me want to hit the town with her even more. Edan Archer plays the Rhinestone Cabaret on 8/28. -Geena Kloeppel



New Track: "No Surprise" - Trilobytes

Pairing lyrical lines with opposing viewpoints, “No Surprise,” the latest single from Trilobytes, covers multiple angles. Building from a somewhat menacing guitar riff and then marching on, the track’s subject appears to consider the possibilities without locking into a particular path. Sitting in the middle of dueling outlooks, a resignation of optimism appears to win out, but not before a brooding, instrumental foray.


Lush Buffalo - Grunge Destruction in "Munson" Music Video

Toronto grungers Lush Buffalo released a brand new music video earlier this summer for their latest single “Munson”. This track is catchy and leans more towards the alt-rock side of their grunge sound. They’re just lightly accepting a little pop punk influence which is cool and helps add a bit of an extra earworm. They cause serious destruction in this video and you can witness similar distruction live at Monarch Tavern on August 22nd when Lush Buffalo performs with The Take, Day Trip and Blue Dream. – Kris Gies


Native Sun talk about Pedals on Delicious Audio + play El Cortez on 08.16

Brooklyn Native Sun's fast paced and heavy handed mix of garage and psych rock has earned a space in the soundtrack to our summer 2018 trips. Their recent EP "Songs Born from Love and Hate" features many flavors of fuzzed-out guitars, so we thought it might be interesting to ask the band a few questions about their pedals and  gear - check out the link below, and see them live at NYC's El Cortez on August 16.

New Track: "Mean Spirit" - Missing Earth

“Mean Spirit” is featured on Gold, Flour and Salt, the debut album from Missing Earth. Coming out from the menacing darkness, with a celestial tone, the track accelerates into the wide-open. There’s a strange familiarity that provides a lonely disconnect. It appears to move one further away, exploring one's own mind, while severing ties in the process.
