Cutouts debut album 'Baby Blue Suede,' play Mercury on 7.28

One of the most surprising aspects of Brooklyn band Cutouts’ debut album Baby Blue Suede is that the title originates from a poem about a Billy Joel song. The crooning of Cutouts is a far leap away from the pop legend provocative pop-rock, but in a weird way, it makes sense for this band. Their thematic goal on this album was to foray into the complex and unpredictable — and they do this well, over a psychedelic soundscape of guitar loops, distortions, and even a refreshing violin part. Their use of characters in songs like “Nina” and “Baby Blue Suede & the Dangerous Three” shows their narrative capacity as artists, as well as their ingenuity. Cutouts are definitely a band to watch in the Brooklyn scene, and they will be at the Mercury Lounge on July 28th. - Lilly Milman

Dust From 1000 Years play Middle East w/ Horse Jumper of Love, Blue Smiley, Brittle Brian

Dust from 1000 Yrs are not trying to take themselves seriously. Despite their "serious" sound, which is at initially somber folk-influenced, they bring an attitude of practical joking to their group. From every album cover including a scrawled, messy font title, to their almost-vaporwave, intentionally off-putting social media, they are not trying with their image. However, this sense of humor offers a healthy counter to the band's usually slow and whiney music. With the release of DUST 2017, they push their joking one step further, with an album of entirely 80's synth-pop sounds. Still, there is a balance and individual statement made in this release. Even when the title of a track is called "Smoke Em Up" their is a melodic tone to the release which recalls the emotion of their earlier music. This new album may be silly, but it's also a way to watch a band that's always been a little funny enjoy being themselves. See them at the Middle East August 24th. -Allie Miller
