Typical Girls' Second EP of the Year is All Pretty Pop Guitar Melodies

Here's three new tracks from San Marcos indiepoppers Typical Girls who, despite the name, are a pack of dudes who make some very pretty pared down guitar rock with a quite unique sound. The new EP is the second the group has put out this year and is thus appropriately and simply titled "EP 2," and it contains three very well constructed tracks of feel-good, deeply pretty pop rock. There's a good bit of sunny-day synth, the reverb is turned up nicely and the vocals are subdued for a beautiful effect that gives them a bit of a Constellation Records from the early 2000s sound (particularly Broken Social Scene and The Dears). It's music that focuses on building moods and just being quite lovely, letting the lyrical content just be one element in a soft, but big and dynamic production. That member Mich D. White is also responsible for some of the lovelier electronic music in the area with his other act Kinder makes perfect sense when you hear "EP 2," with its many pleasing layers and nice, airy sounds. It's pretty fuckin' gorgeous music Typical Girls have put out here, most especially opener "How We Spent It," and it bodes well for this young band's future. Check it below, y'all.

Providence electronic act Bellerophon plays The Middle East-Corner on 11.16 and Aurora on 11.17

Back in April, Providence electronic act Bellerophon shared two elegantly sensual songs, "Face The Sun" and "Cowboy Without A Horse" (both streaming below). While the first track has project mastermind Mauricio Ossa pondering the unreachable over skipping effects, the second one has him elusively singing about possible confusion above ambling guitars. Listening to these songs, one may recall both the plush shoegaze of Big Troubles and the chilled electronica of The xx while eagerly wanting more songs from this undeniably intriguing project. Bellerophon plays at The Middle East-Corner in Cambridge, MA on 11.16 and at Aurora in Providence, RI on 11.17.- Zach Weg

Dark Dream Your Way Through Fall with Rikroshi

We don't know all too much about what the debut album from duo Rikroshi (formerly Bells and Parks) will be like outside of the info on their Indiegogo page (the campaign wrapped up in June), but if the one available single "Watercolor" is anything to go by, winter 2015 is gonna bring us one hell of a dark, beautifully sulky album. This track is a bit gothy/new wave gloom and a bit of a melody that sounds somewhat folk-Asian inspired, and yet it isn't afraid to really slam on some heavy-ass, big-chord guitar work. The high-pitched wandering voice of singer Tessa Bennecht and said slamming guitar noise complement each other very nicely in "Watercolors," which, as the season changes to something darker and more introspective, feels very apropos to this time of year. It even has a bit of the bittersweetness of the upcoming season that isn't all shadows and cold, but sometimes is bright and cheery as well, when at the end of the track it goes major for just a few fleeting seconds to fade out on a positive note. It's intriguing stuff from an artist pair in the midst of transition, and it feels just right as our world too transitions in these dusky months. Listen below, and get in the darkmonth mood.
