Baseball Gregg plays Milk Bar May 24

Baseball Gregg is always keeping us on our toes. Just when we’re divining into some sweet n jazzy cabana beats, they switch gears and take us to a poppier place with funky baseline magic. Check out their newest single, “The Movies,” and in case you’re ready for summer, please enjoy their weird and solid music video for “Welcome the Night.” Love us some Wes Andersonian touches like that. They’re playing Milk Bar with Video Age and Max Gardener this Friday May 24. Thanks, Throwin’ Bo’s, for another tasty lineup. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

 





Katie Rush returns with new R&B-glazed album Stage Life

Katie Rush is everything that is great about synth-pop music: the group confidently delivers a sonic meteor shower that dazzles with its dreamy synth melodies and sonorous bass lines. The harmonious flow of the band’s latest album Stage Life comes from R&B-lacquered vocals and essential drum beats. The group’s ten-track album is a sweet ride from start to finish that is powered by the tender yet sophisticated singing style of lead vocalist Katie Wagner. Think of Katie Rush as a soulful alternative to synth-pop group of the moment Chvrches. The record is dedicated to the memory of band member Sam Mehran who helped write, produce, mix, and master the album. We have the title track here for you. - Rene Cobar





New Track: "Breathe Out" - Curtis Cooper

Philly's own Curtis Cooper has a new album coming out on June 3, titled Graceful, and you can now listen to its lead single, "Breathe Out," below. The song lyrically depicts how tension and anxiety tend to build and weigh us down. That compounding effect is countered by the bright, jangly guitar and percussive patterns. Then, the warm, vocal harmony relieves in an airy, uplifting manner as the recording opens up. That ability to create complex, vivid imagery and sound, while retaining a personal connection easily grabs one's attention and makes Cooper's next release something to look forward to.





New Music Video: "Body Says" - Void Vision

A new video for Void Vision's "Body Says" has arrived. The lead single, featured on Shari Vari's forthcoming album The Other, is due out later this year via Mannequin Records. Directed by Hanna Hamilton & Floor Eleven, a quartet of white-coated, vampire-esque individuals are onlookers to a bit of tantalizing entertainment. A hypnotic, danceable darkness consumes as a whole lotta freakiness falls under the spell of the music.

"A claustrophobic ode to physical and mental confines. Dark voguing, undulating bodies, DIY surgery and the increasing sensory stimulation compels the demonic watchers to become ravenous and bloodthirsty."





The Weird Years offer a new brand of folk music with their self-titled EP

The few tracks that have been released by the newly formed Brooklyn quartet The Weird Years showcase a unique hybrid of folk music. Employing slowly strummed guitars and vocal harmonies, the group initially shroud their sound with simplicity, dwelling on themes revolving around the march of time and the paradoxical feelings that come with being alone. It's only after prolonged listening that their DNA unravels, revealing a double helix that equally relishes in a slow-burning ambiance. It's an arresting combination which makes their EP deserving to be unpacked patiently. -Tucker Pennington
