Wild NYC bill at Rough Trade on 01.12 with Bambara, A Deer A Horse and Gnarcissists

The faint of heart (and/or ear) should avoid at all costs Rough Trade on the eve of Saturday January 12th, since three loud and aggressive local bands will grace the venue's stage in quick succession starting at 9pm. Headliners Bambara have refined their gloomy psych rock in ever-darker and tenser directions with their latest two full lengths, while sludge rockers A Deer A Horse will be a worthy opener, sharing those same traits minus the psychedelic ingredient. Opener Gnarcissist will bring to the stage a more traditional (and fun) DIY punk with a markedly drunk and chaotic attitude. Tickets are on sale here, check out a playlist of vidoes below.





New Music Video: "Something On Your Mind" - Secret Nudist Friends

So we've diggin' on Philly's own Secret Nudist Friends for quite a while now. Their split EP with pals and fellow bandmates Blushed was our July Record of the Month 2018, and we are definitely interested in hearing a new album from the local garage-psych quartet sooner than later. Well, until that comes about, we have for you a new video for their single, "Something On Your Mind," which was directed by Deb Gilmore. Enjoy the groovetastic little jaunt with the gang through Point Breeze, and you can catch their next performance in Philly on Friday, January 25 at Everybody Hits! (Photo by Mike Arrison)





Seán Barna reps NYC's indie folk at this year's SXSW

Seán Barna is an indie folk artist who wears an intimidating amount of hats—songwriter, vocalist, percussionist, guitarist, storyteller, influencer. Beginning with just ‘percussionist’ under his belt at nine years of age, Barna has been building his artist resume since his 2014 debut, Cutter Street. His music is insightful and exploratory, and has gained serious momentum also because of its social and cultural influences. His latest EP Cissy speaks on subjects regarding queerness, mental illness, mortality and national desperation, which far surpasses any 2-D conversation that a drum kit alone might bring to the table. Cissy is candid, calculated and weighed by heavy contemplation on masculinity, creating a stunning and sensitive form of songwriting. This recipe seems to working for the local artist: Barna will be trekking to Austin this year for the SXSW Music Festival. Catch Seán Barna live at SXSW in March and stream his latest EP Cissy on Soundcloud. - Rebecca Carroll





Steady Sun premieres video for "Television Eyes"

It might be the middle of winter, but the psychedelic music of Brooklyn's Steady Sun evokes the heat daze of the hottest of seasons (in the Arizona desert). We are premiering here the band’s latest music video, a sun-soaked vision of their 2017 track Television Eyes, beautifully directed by Slack Barrett. The song's relaxed pace allows the band to reflect on technology’s place in our lives - how it can both alienate us from the world even while providing a sense of connection to to others. Harkening back to the sophisticated psychedelia of the early '70s (think Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here"), the track is built around an arpeggioed guitar that would make Roger Waters proud, and filled by an orchestration of vintage sounding instruments and uber-dreamy vocal lines. Stream it below. - Sunny Betz





New Goodbye Max Split EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Singer-songwriter Goodbye Max recently dropped a new split EP Out in the Quiet, with music brethren Half Birthday. For his part, the Philly artist counters the chill of this weather with the warmth and isolation of these recordings. It might not bring you completely out of this winter hibernation funk, but the comfort of his loneliness just might help you feel less alone. Go ahead, and give it a try.
