A Deli Premiere: new psych-pop single from Beechwood

Beechwood’s specialty is classic garage rock with a psych tinge. Sometimes it’s in-your-face, loud and proud punk, sometimes it’s syrupy indie pop, but the New York trio pretty much has their thing figured out. The group’s newest single, “Boy Before,” hits closer to the later with a glam rock guitar riff introducing a Jesus and Mary Chain-esque haze. Guitarist/vocalist Gordon Lawrence in particular shines on the track with an almost sleazily enticing, half-murmured vocal delivery. The track comes in advance of Inside The Flesh Hotel (preorder it here), out June 8 on Alive Records, and a string of European tour dates. Take a listen to “Boy Before” below. Beechwood is currently touring Europe – Cameron Carr





Pllush releases single "Big Train" in anticipation of debut LP 'Stranger to the Pain'

“Big Train” (streaming below) is the third and final single to be released off San Francisco-based quartet Pllush’s (formerly known as Plush) forthcoming debut LP Stranger to the Pain. The guitar-driven track showcases an intense collision between shoegaze, indie and pop. Self-described as “sob rock,” Pllush’s sound is unique; overlaying fuzzy guitars with emotional lyrics creates a gut-wrenching chorus (“Who’s gonna love me more / when I’m crying in the middle of the night? / Maybe I’m feeling torn / because nothing ever comes out right”) with a power that grows with each repetition, until it eventually explodes in a surprising mix of pop harmonies and grungey lead vocals. The full album will be released on June 8 and Pllush will be celebrating the record release that night at Bottom of the Hill. - Lilly Milman





New Dark Thoughts Live EP Available for Streaming & Download

Philly punk outfit Dark Thoughts is getting ready to release a new full-length album. The band recently stopped by Drexel University's WKDU on April 1, 2018 for a live performance/recording session. The trio surprised the station's listeners with a little preview of its forthcoming LP, Dark Thoughts At Work, pounding out four new songs - "Anything II," "Psycho Ward," "I Wish," and "Gimme Soda," which you can stream and download below. And if you still are thirsty for more, Dark Thoughts will be performing next in Philly at Common Beat on Sunday, June 3 with Cult Objects, as well as Boot & Saddle, on Sunday, July 29, opening for Iron Chic. 





New Black Zone Myth Chant EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Exploring newly-discovered terrain with the comfort of a dance-enriching backdrop, Black Zone Myth Chant’s new release, Black Zion Mystic Chant, hints at the familiar, while delving into the unknown. Stacking instrumentation into unexpected, free-associating shapes, the innovative sound sculptor creates a trippy, futuristic headspace, as elements zip and zap by. Pausing in points of animation, one simultaneously notices the push and pull of airy intensity. The ability to dig deep into these sonic caverns is a mind-warping gift.





Buzz Alert: The Nectars tour the UK + release debut LP "Sci-Fi Television" on 06.01

New Jersey quartet The Nectars is opening up a space for the rock of 20 years ago to spill like a smashed Capri Sun back into our consciousness. Their songs are about having fun, being free and in love, and offer a sound appropriately reminiscent of those positively punchy, female fronted, power pop bands of the late '90s/early aughts like No Doubt and Paramore. Singer Jessica Kenny has the presence and vocal prowess to take this band beyond the local circuit (as a matter fact, they are already touring the UK) and songs like "I Want It" (our favorite) and recently released "We Will Run" (streaming below) have the melodic appeal to win over the new generation of rock seekers.  After a string of singles accompanied by lo-fi-ish videos, the band is set to release debut album Sci-Fi Television on June 1st.

Jessica Kenny describes the band's new music video for "We Will Run" as “a love letter to simpler times. A tribute to the New Jersey of our youth." Set in a low rent rehearsal space and peppered with shots of the band just hanging out and riding bikes, the video's mood is set for the juicy nostalgia the band aims to embody while letting us feel it new again. "We are sci-fi television love" Jessica repeats in the bridge. Somehow I'm reminded of Indiana Jones re-runs on TV, when the internet took so long to load that it wasn't worth it, when having nothing to do on a Saturday was normal and blissfully boring - and getting a new CD was the best treat there ever was... - Meghan Rose
