Cordoba "Specter"

Cordoba recently channeled the scariest parts of 2020 into a spooky new album, Specter, which dropped the day before Halloween. The sextet uses their signature left of center jazz fusion grooves as a bed for lyrics that touch on topics like gentrification, police brutality, and escalating social unrest.

The group's lead singer Brianna Tong was on the most recent episode of the wonderful podcast Music Therapy with Jessica Risker discussing the new album, it's themes, and how to stay creative in these times.

Pure Adult debuts new song in 10.16.2020 live set

It was just over a week ago that Pure Adult played a raucous set on BABY TV, the socially distanced version of indie venue Baby's All Right, and this writer is still recovering. The Brooklyn-duo-turned-live-foursome is known for filtering adult concerns--e.g., late capitalism, social control, granny panties--through a childlike impulsiveness whose end result is a big wonderful mess of burbling synths, stuttering drums, gratuitous guitar pedal abuse and brief spasms of strutting rawk. Pure Adult’s mix-and-match aesthetic is not unlike a kid let loose with a 128-count box of crayons, fresh piles of Play-doh and a prescription of Ritalin. The set below opens with the band’s as-yet-unreleased “Ain't I A Woman” (shout out to Sojourner Truth) segueing into “The New Guillotine” (see underwear fetish above), a track from the band's debut EP S/T (self-titled, that is). In these five minutes you get a pretty good idea of what they're about: a feral Foucauldian funhouse ride that's equal parts “queasy listening” and raw ecstatic rush. (Jason Lee)





Gramps The Vamp "Rendezvous"

Gramps The Vamp have released the lead single, "Rendezvous", from their forthcoming LP, Keeper of the Void, which is set to be released on October 23rd. This is the first new music from the unique Jazz group since their 2016 album, The Cave of 10,000 Eyes. The new single is an homage to the classic spy movie themes of '50's and '60's, and comes complete with a Dominick Gray directed video.

Emily Kuhn "Roses"

Trumpeter Emily Kuhn has released the opening track and first single, "Roses", from her forthcoming debut album Sky Stories, which will be released on October 30th via Bace Records.

This album is Kuhn's tribute to Chicago, it's Jazz scene, it's landscapes, and it's atmosphere. On the album she performs with two different lineups of musicians. The first, and the one featured on "Roses" is called Helios and features Kuhn, Max Bessesen, Mercedes Inez Martinez, Evan Levine, Gustavo Cortiñas, and more. The second line-up is the combination of Kuhn, Joe Suihkonen, Katie Ernst, and Nate Friedman.

The Flower Pistils experiment in new single "Oooh Banana"

Was it so long ago that the now infamous duct-taped banana at Art Basel made headlines around the world? When you listen to The Flower Pistils’ (Emma Gies and Micah Huang) art-pop single “Oooh Banana,” you feel you are eating it yourself. The song experiments with electronic influences and suggestive themes that defy the group’s usual indie-pop label; fuck labels. Mechanical but groovy, abstract yet profound, you can savor the single as you like. As the rhythm trots and intensifies its pace, you cannot help join it—what else would you like for a weekend treat? Stream “Oooh Banana” below for a taste of fantasies born out of exquisite sounds. - René Cobar
