Vomitface celebrates debut album release at Alphaville on 8.28

Vomitface formed shortly after Hurricane Sandy when two of its members found themselves trapped in their home writing songs about their depressing surroundings, and released two EPs in 2014 and 2015. Evoking the sounds of Nirvana and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the lead single off their upcoming album “Senior Pictures” is a sludgy grungy track that features crunchy spastic guitars over a steady rhythm section. Front-man Jared Micah delivers lines like “I like the subtle way you roll your eyes” in a deadpan tone before erupting into a raw and gritty scream during the song's final seconds. The trio recently released a music video for the song directed by Jimmy Fontaine and Nick Bilardello. It depicts the group rocking out in a gritty warehouse setting and on the rooftop of a New York City building, through uneven camera movements that match their angsty brand of rock. Vomitface’s debut full length Hooray For Me will be released on August 26th via Help Yourself Records, and they will be celebrating its release on August 28th at Alphaville in Brooklyn! Stream their latest single Dramamine below! - John Honan





The Lemon Twigs unveil video for "These Words" + tour with Sunflower Bean

This Long Island teen brother duo is set for an exciting year, having recently signed with legendary British label 4AD. First single—“These Words” b/w “As Long As We're Together”—is not merely post-modern mischief. It’s full of seventies cliché, the kind which elegizes funky guitars, prog synths, smooth choruses, and metallic band logos (e.g. Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden). In this case, a hypervigilant sensitivity to the past doesn’t detract, but feels freshly imbued with the spirit of youth. Check out the brand new video for the single, streaming below, and don't miss their upcoming show with Sunflower Bean at Music Hall of W'Burg on October 7 (part of a three week east coast tour). - Brian Chidester





Noname

Noname (aka Fatimah Warner) has appeared on several tracks for Chance the Rapper and other over the last year, but earlier this month she finally struck out on her own. Her debut mixtape, Telefone, is a throwback to early '90's hip hop with tones of Digable Planets and Lauryn Hill.





New Track: "Closer" (Feat. Daru Jones) - Modern Inventors

Modern Inventors has released a new track, called “Closer”. Enlisting the percussive services of Jack White’s Daru Jones, the song takes drums-meets-keys-and-bass groove, and spins it out in a free-floating psych manner. As the hypnotically smooth vocals coast on a pillow, a lingering exterior buzz hangs in the periphery. This electro-soul/R&B offers a loose, gripping, exploratory side that you’ll want to ride for a while.





The Mystery Lights bring their vintage psych-blues to Baby's All Right on 8.17

After moving to New York City from a small town in California, The Mystery Lights solidified their lineup and won over Brooklyn crowds with their vibrant and rough garage-psych. The band was the first to put out a release on Daptone’s rock imprint Wick Records back in June with their self-titled debut. The quintet’s vintage sound is deeply rooted in the spirited nature of garage and punk, while also bringing '60s blues rock to the table. Album opener “Follow Me Home” features fuzzy, hypnotic guitars and rumbling drums with lively fuzz-soaked rock and roll vocals that often employ a yelping delivery. “The energetic track “Too Many Girls” (streaming) evokes the early soul and funk records with a smoother delivery,  call and response vocals, and winding guitars. The Mystery Lights will be playing Baby's All Right on August 17th! - John Honan
