Get haunted with Ghost Piss at Berlin 1.16

Imagining the haunted machinations of a drum machine is a good way to begin to understand Ghost Piss’s sound. Songwriter and purveyor of 808s River Allen excels at creating spacey electro-pop with off-kilter subject matter, from her ode to Stranger Things’s Nancy Kerrigan (“Nancy, Oh Nancy”) to her celebration of shiny teeth enthusiasts (“I’m Chip Skylark”). Underscored by echoing beats, atmospheric vocals, and a minimalist mindset, Allen’s tracks bring an experimental, dance-friendly soundtrack for nights out on the town or a private disco in your own bedroom; give it a listen below, and see Ghost Piss at Berlin on January 16th, alongside Den-Mate, The Spookfish, and Loren Beri.

Laura Wolf’s “Good Veins” is a glitched orchestra, plays Sultan Room 1.10

At the core of Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Laura Wolf’s sound is the congruence of tones eclectic and electronic. Her new single “Good Veins” exists at a point wherein the acoustic becomes synthetic, where strings are modified and altered insofar as they become a new instrument altogether, a sound Wolf aptly describes as “cello glitch pop.” Despite the vast change Laura Wolf’s string performance undergoes, it resonates with the listener as orchestral regardless; samplers, keys and vox congeal in a symphonic manner, each individual part brought in to build the track’s dramatic climax, fashioning music that wouldn’t be out of place in a chapel or a concert hall. Listen to the song below, and catch Laura Wolf at the Sultan Room on January 10th, alongside Katie Glasgow, Powerlines, and Foxanne. —Connor Beckett McInerney, Image by Anna Azarov

Will Orchard starts the year right with new record "Old Friends On The Mountain"

One can imagine Rhode Island’s Will Orchard thoroughly immersed in the writing and recording of his folktronica 2020 record Old Friends On The Mountain: the richly-layered instrumentation, the most-sincere emotion in the vocals, and the tranquility of it all are tell-tale signs of a sweet escape for the artist. As a listener, one is both witness and partaker of an experience carefully orchestrated for attentive ears. For both the sonic epicurean and casual listener, there is plenty to dab in, such as the serene acoustic strings of the opener “Until It’s Found,” which join an irresistible rhythm where Orchard’s voice reverberates. Tracks like “My Belly Is Full Of Hydrangea” are much more upbeat, and topped off with buttery smooth trumpet solos. There is an emotional tinge to the record, not a forceful one or so evident, just right for the man-nature connection it establishes. Listen to the heavy-exceptional bass in “Turning Back Again” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

Mousa ushers in nostalgia in new record "Mousatron X"

If you are in the nostalgic mood most of us are in after the decade came to a less-than-spectacular end, then we recommend a surefire stimulant: Maine’s Mousa has just released Mousatron X, a solid record worth the six-year wait. The album is a short treat that hits all the right spots as it fluctuates from galactic-noise themes like those in the opener “Silent In” to bedroom pop/psych-infused synth swells that complement a sonorous croon. The record captures the intimacy and infinity of its concept: the music found in tracks like “Cower” drains into the listener’s mind to create nostalgic images so infinite. Stream the delicate balance of grand sounds and homely vocals that is the album’s closing track “In Between Dreams” below. Happy New Year, New England! - Rene Cobar
