Melt's Sour Fruit is Out Now

Melt has just released their latest album, Sour Fruit, via Halfshell Records. The album is freaky, earnest fun. The band’s burn out aesthetic doesn’t slow down the energy and enthusiasm they put into playing. Songs like “Snow” are jazzy and psychedelic, but they don’t fall into the expected rhythms we usually get from psych songs. The band twists when you think they’ll turn. They introduce a high note when you think a low one is coming, or slow the beat down at moments where it traditionally picks up. The change is very welcome. Other songs are faster, more surf-punk oriented. “Catch Me” is a great example, with laggy vocal distortion and passionate guitar riffs chords. “Catch Me” has the kind of tongue-twisting lyrics that are are a lot of fun to sing along to.

If you want a chance to sing the lyrics along with the band, Melt's tour kickoff will be taking place July 20th at the Ladd taphouse. Scott Yoder, Cry Babe and !mindparade will also be playing sets. You can find out more information on the facebook page here





07.06: The High Tides open for The Constellations at The End

Fans of the lo-fi hip-hop tinged indie sound of Mac Demarco or Anderson .Paak will enjoy the tunes of The High Tides, one of Nashville's new up-and-coming indie groups, led by Aaron Diebold, Aeris Hennings, Xavier Bond, and Jackson Weippert. The High Tides' blend of R&B and pop fits right in with the increasingly hot dog days of summer; their new album Thanks For Nothing, which came out in May, has a handful of tracks to cool you down, including the soothing opener "My Perspective" which you can listen to below. The High Tides will open a bill headlined by Atlanta-based hip-hop/rock band The Constellations at The End on July 6th. Recover from your holiday hangover, then go check them out. - Will Sisskind





Gabacho "El Recuerdo"

Gabacho is preparing to release a new single, “El Recuerdo” (The Memory), on July 11th. This follows his debut EP, “Some Time Ago…”, which was just released back in April.

The track has an amazing retro psychedelic sound and was recorded by Chace Wall (aka Skul.kid). This is in sharp contrast to Gabacho’s EP, which was sung in a mix of English and Spanish, and was a stripped down, acoustic, affair.

One Time Weekend is a funky carnival of sounds too good to pass up, plays BRYAC Black Rock 06.28

Letting its reggae and funk influences lead the way, the group from Collinsville, CT known as One Time Weekend has crafted a record you can move to. Weekend at the Circus is jam-packed with hip electric guitar solos, fun changes in tempo, rapid-fire vocals, and piano notes that shine among the carnival of sounds. The lead vocal melodies on tracks like “Gandalf” and “Cavity” have the magnetism of great orators like Sublime’s Bradley James Nowell or Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy; the instruments move the party along with groovy basslines to spare. One Time Weekend’s summer tour continues with a stop at BRYAC Black Rock in Bridgeport, CT on June 28th. We are streaming “Cavity” below for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar





New Track: "Playoff" - Makeup Tutorial

"Playoff" is the latest single to appear from Makeup Tutorial. Ruminating in lo-fi, bedroom-pop atmospherics, the soft, whispered vocals are contrasted by the forceful, acoustic strums. Mixed emotions express doubt over sustainability, as the outer perimeters morph sonically. It’s a song that begins and ends gently, yet resonates with a resounding strength.
