Balún brings their unique island-inspired electronic sound to Rough Trade 07.12

Indie electronic band Balún is quickly making their presence known - in their current home base of Brooklyn and globally. Their 2016 single “La Nueva Ciudad” was on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 playlist as well as in eight Latin American countries. “El Espanto,” their most recent single, is inspired by the dembow and reggae heartbeat of their hometown, San Juan, Puerto Rico, reinterpreted through the lens of the creative local DIY scene. The breadth of the genres they encompass is representative of their transnational experience; of their two homes and how they complement each other. The result is a harmonious, transportive blend of island rhythm and city edge, a style they call “dreambow.” Balún’s unique style is one not to miss, catch them live at Rough Trade on July 12th. - Lily Crandall

New Music Video: "Find" - Fleabite

NVM, the new EP from Fleabite, was recently released via Salinas Records. The new video for the EP’s closer, “Find,” offers a quick-hitting montage,  casting a candid, wide-ranging view of tour life. It’s a whirlwind of closely-knit individuals and a series of scenic stops, providing a visual scrapbook of memorable moments along the quartet’s adventures. Fleabite will be holding a belated record release celebration this Tuesday, July 10 at LAVA Space, which will double as a benefit for the venue and Morris Home, "a residential recovery program providing affirming and culturally competent services for the trans community." They will also be joined on the bill by Pinkwash, Jenna Pup, and Juice.

Lola Kirke announces new LP, releases video, lands Union Pool residency

Actress and singer-songwriter Lola Kirke dropped a double-whammy of news over the past week; she released the music video for her latest single "Supposed To" on Thursday, and announced that her first full-length album "Heart Head West" will see the light on August 10. Both the single and the album deal with matters personal to Kirke; self-doubt, family matters, and pressures from society bubble to the surface in her lyrics. In the video for "Supposed To", which Kirke directed herself, an older woman allows herself to let loose. Kirke says of the track: "How rebellious would you feel if you had spent your life just doing things that you felt that you were supposed to do? That society told you to do?" Kirke explores that theme and more on the upcoming LP; she'll support its release with three shows at Union Pool on August 21, 22, and 23. Watch the video for "Supposed To" below. - Will Sisskind

New Video: Faces I Know - Instupendo

Across a series of streamlined videos, director Alice Agrusa visualizes the vibrant, pensive tranquility of Instupendo’s Faces I Know. The inherent warmth and beauty of both nature and personal, intimate moments shine when highlighted through the buoyant musical movement. Without dialogue, the EP not only serves as a means of transition; it elevates the imagery, encapsulating a vivid hope.

It's the end of LVL UP, band shares final song and tour dates

LVL UP, a longtime hallmark of the New York indie rock scene, announced earlier this week that the members would be retiring the project. In a statement shared on social media they referred to the band as “an extremely rewarding journey beyond anything we could have ever realistically imagined.” In the post, LVL UP shared a final single, “Orchard,” and farewell tour dates that will have the band travelling from coast to coast for one month. All of the members have other projects including guitarist Mike Caridi’s The Glow, bassist Nick Corbo’s Spirit Was, and guitarist Dave Benton’s Trace Mountains which features drummer Greg Rutkin—Rutkin also played in Cende, another indie rock favorite that recently called it quits. LVL UP will play a final show at Bowery Ballroom on September 28. – Cameron Carr
