Carroll LP Release Show at The Barbary Nov. 11

Psych-pop quartet Carroll impresses with the release of their sophomore record, As Far As Gardens Grow. The LP reveals serenading vocals, pristine keys, rhythmically vibrant guitars and bass lines, and whimsically-crafted songwriting from the Minneapolis transplants. The album was mixed by Jon Lo (The National, Sharon Van Etten), who was the inspiration behind their relocation, and it is now available via Shattered Orb Records. Carroll will be celebrating its arrival this evening at their Weathervane Music-presented album release party at The Barbary. They'll also be joined by Brooklyn-based garage-pop trio THICK and Petunia, the solo project from local singer-songwriter John Ryan. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $7-$10, 21+ - Bill McThrill

NYC DJ on the rise: Kerri Chandler

Continuing on in the psychedelic milieu, native Kerry Chandler's strange, compelling work mixes '80s acid house and deep-house, with exotic percussion. At his live performances, expect his usual spate of sound effects too—people talking, cars honking, general tones of urban life—which is known reduce the species to a wonderland of microcosms. - Brian Chidester

Buzz Alert: Cheena takes their twang-punk to Europe

Busting out of the city's underbelly, Cheena, a 5-piece twang-punk band, churns out tunes for NY nocturnals and is quickly proving a place among the streets that artists like Lou Reed and the Dolls once called home. Their latest album, Spend the Night With..., smacks of NYC glitz and grit, and belches out anarcho-anthems for lawless nights spent in packed, sweaty rock clubs. It's probably not fair to say that Cheena sounds like New York, but you'll find that the glam and gutter goodness--the sneering, New York-cool--all baked in between the catchy melodies and reckless riffs. The band is currently on a Euro-tour so hold yourself over until they return by streaming them below. - Olivia Sisinni 

New Sad13 LP Available for Streaming

While Slugger, the new album from Sad13 (a.k.a. Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz), won’t be officially released via Carpark Records until November 11, it can currently be heard in advance below via NPR Music’s First Listen. These songs shimmer while delving into the incisive, relationship-detailing, personal anecdotes and exploring complex issues of gender roles, equality, marginalization, etc. It’s a bright collection of music illuminating big picture social issues through concise layers of lyrical depth. Sad13 will be performing next in Philly alongside Vagabon, Emily Reo, and Told Slant on Monday, December 12 at Everybody Hits. (Photo by Shervin Lainez)

New Music Video: "Oversteeped" - Littler

While Littler might have officially gone on hiatus this past summer, the band has shed some light at the end of the tunnel with their new music video for "Oversteeped". The single is off the four-piece's upcoming EP Bad Hands, which was produced by Swearin's Kyle Gilbride and is slated for release in 2017. The group's latest video was shot on 16mm film by Kenny Suleimanagich, and directed by Dylan Hansen-Fliedner. Guitarist Dan Colanduno spends a day at the shore, and makes a serious effort to protect himself from those harmful UV rays. (Photo by Emily Burtner)
