New Video: Five Years Release Show - Square Peg Round Hole

The instrumental trio of Square Peg Round Hole recently shared its new EP, entitled Five Years. A rejuvenating, meditative calm washes over you, as one observes the encircling environment to blossom. Through subtle points of illumination, a beautiful vividness emerges. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE, and you can also view a video created by Vic Firth below, featuring a performance of the full album from the band's release show at the IceBox Project Space, as well as four reimagined arrangements of older Square Peg Round Hole songs. The group was accompanied by Joshua Chase Miller, Tessa K Ellis, and Anna Meadors, providing guest vocals, guitar, saxophone, and flugelhorn.





Spare Spells Finally Drop Long Awaited Full Length

Spare Spells first caught our eye at the top of the year, when we nominated them for our Artist of the Month poll. Their haunted synth rock granted them the win, of course, but at the time the only peeks into it we had were from Neon/Noir EP. We longed to hear more and after being teased with the prospect of their first full length The Narrows coming out at an undisclosed time. Finally, Spare Spells adorers have gotten their wish, since The Narrows officially comes out today.

You can stream it below, but stopping by the Waypost tonight to see them perform the tracks live will be even better. Combined with some visuals from Ash Plains and the night becomes elevated in its perfection.





The Tambo Rays to Release New EP - Recharge

The Oakland based band, The Tambo Rays are gearing up to release their new album, Recharged. In examining the sound, story and circumstances injected into Oakland-based indie-pop-rock band The Tambo Rays’ new EP, you would be hard pressed to come up with a more fitting title than Recharged.

With Recharge, The Tambo Rays craft buoyant, sun-soaked pop-rock as Sara’s infectious vocals and energy spring out like the prismatic light structures their father was famous for creating in the 70s. The EPs five life-affirming tracks respond to the uncertainties we all face with radiant positivity and saccharine, driving pop-rock reminiscent of golden-era Blondie. The EP also marks the band’s first release with Lisa Weiss (keys) who joined in 2016.

Recharge will be released on July 17th on OIM Records. Listen to the album's latest single, Get It Right Now.

 





Q&A with DJ/Producer Sweater Beats - currently touring non stop

If you met Antonio Cuna, aka Sweater Beats, without a formal introduction, in all likelihood you wouldn't think he's one of NYC most successful DJ/Producers. Hailing from the Philippines via Maryland, Antonio belongs to the rare breed of musicians who are so hard working and talented that they don't need to dress up (or pose) to impress. In the last decade Sweater Beats has been growing incessantly, with Antonio's music, a contagious mix of dance, synth pop and R'n'B, becoming more and more viral. Notwithstanding the fact that in 2017 he's been touring incessantly, we managed to ask yhim a few questions about his musical project. - Check out his latest single "Alstar" (streaming below) and read the Q&A here.





Artist to Watch: Shit Giver

The artful dynamics of trio Shit Giver leave an indelible impact. On their debut full-length, entitled ...Life, the band's knotty guitar lines and undulating bass grooves propel forward with an urgency that sounds like a more refined take on hardcore punk. Led by Preston Mendell's mirthless sing-speak, there's an assaulting intensity to their cutting fury that does seek to modernize the post-collegiate malaise of early to mid-nineties post-punk. It's a remarkable step forward from their promising demo recordings, as it perfectly exemplifies how they direct that raw vitriol with a trenchant intelligence that cannot be ignored.

...Life is out now on their official bandcamp page. Though they're currently touring the Pacific Northwest, Shit Giver will be back soon to play a hometown show at the Bootleg on July 15.
