New Ecstatic Vision Album Available for Streaming

Raw Rock Fury, the new album from psych-rockers Ecstatic Vision, will be released via Relapse Records on April 7; however, the wait is over because the album is currently streaming over at Noisey. The band unleashes their unrelenting charge of backend rhythm, sorcerer-style, guttural vocals, projected from the mountaintop or down in the dungeon with blistering blasts of saxophone and stealthy floating flutes. The concoction pulls listeners into an intoxicating brand of heavy, one which soars toward the cosmos, simultaneously exorcising demons. Ecstatic Vision is scheduled to perform on Saturday, April 15 at the First Unitarian Church on a bill that also includes EyeHateGod, Rosetta, and Moros.





Las Rosas releases debut LP at Baby's All Right on 04.08

We caught Las Rosas at an afternoon CMJ party on the (apparently) final edition of the Music Marathon in 2015, and it was obvious the guys didn't lack good songwriting chops and the character necessary to make them shine. Since then, they've been extremely active in the NYC scene and beyond and even ventured to Europe earlier this year for a few dates. They are now releasing their debut album, wishful thinking-ly titled "Everyone Gets Exactly What They Want," and it confirms our early positive impressions. It's a very enjoyable psych garage record with traces of '50/60s pop revival, bolstered up by Jose Boyer's raspy tenor, full of charisma and melodic ideas that are the foundation of this band's DNA. Las Rosas will celebrate the release of the album at Baby's All Right on April 8th with other noteworthy locals Breanna Barbara and Juan Wauters. Check out their new video for "Boys," below.

New Track: "SICKO" - Psychic Teens

It feels like it's been a minute since we've heard new material from Philly gothic post-punk power trio Psychic Teens. And the wait was well worth it! "SICKO," the band's latest incendiary single, sets ablaze all in its path with bloodcurdling guitar slashes and unrelenting percussive bombardments. No one will be spared. It's an unfiltered, revealing, dystopian depiction of our modern day society. "SICKO" can be found on the group's forthcoming EP HEX, due out April 21 via Hex Records.





NYC Record of the Month: Tiny Hazard's "Greyland"

There aren't a lot of bands like Tiny Hazard floating around these days. Their brand of avant-pop is quite unique and that's certainly also due to the fact that the music they've strived to master is difficult to conceive, let alone perform. Maybe that's why their new record "Greyland" took about five years to be finalized. Alena Spanger's vocals are the core of the record, leading the tracks' twists and turn with her beautiful soprano, never afraid to get downright complex/intense. There's a paradoxical stance taken with the composition, with the melodies pivoting back and forth from sweet to dissonant, and the arrangements from orchestral to utterly noisy. The songs are sparse in their instrumentation but tease the ear with their stops and starts, time changes, odd tempos, and dynamic and melodic shifts. There's so much to be worked out for the listener of this album that a repeated close listening is required to appreciate it fully: it's truly a gift that keeps on giving. Be sure to pick up a copy of "Greyland," it's a worthy investment, and don't miss the band live at The Silent Barn on April 14. - Andrew Strader





The Bad Signs Share Single "Blue Love" Ahead of 12" Release

The Bad Signs' new single, "Blue Love," is a 50s style rock ballad that captures an aching heart. Samantha Harlow's vocal ability shines in the outfit's new release, carrying the sentimental number smoothly to the end. There's something unique about the sonic niche the band occupies that sets them apart from other reverb loving Nashville rockers. They infuse straightforward indie rock with an occult meets biker gang aesthetic and sonic touch, making their work both haunting and badass. Be on the lookout for an exclusive record store day release of a 12", Black Magic Moments, featuring the new single as well as four other new numbers.
