New Track: "All Who Are Thirsty" (Brenton Brown/Glenn Robertson Cover) - Abi Reimold

Philly singer-songwriter Abi Reimold recently shared their take of Brenton Brown/Glenn Robertson's “All Who Are Thirsty”. A solemn, heaviness hangs in the air. Accompanied by guitar, Reimold stretches out a hand in an eerily inviting manner, as the weight of the words pile up. Allow it all to sink in. (Photo by Kathryn Rogers)





Horse Mode releases dynamic two-track EP, plays UnchARTed 07.27

Lowell, Massachusetts has never been lacking in character, so it only fits that bands nurtured in its distinct environment would be able to tell a good story. Enter Horse Mode, a group who in less than seven minutes paints a vivid picture of the once-thriving industrial city: the agile math-rock composition that is the band's two-track EP The And / Breath performs like a well-oiled machine. The group uses dynamic guitar arpeggios, energetic drum fills, and vocals reminiscent of Zack de la Rocha's glory days to create a sonic apparatus worth cherishing. The gritty spirit of Lowell is undoubtedly captured in the record, the band approaches its music with resolve, telling a whole lot in the instrumental work. The group will be playing UnchARTed in its hometown on July 27th. As a treat, we are streaming the two-track EP for you below. - Rene Cobar

Big Cheese returns with new single, show at Art at the Footlight 07.25

Fans of Brooklyn’s garage rock quartet Big Cheese have something to look forward to this year: Wild to Be Born, a brand new record, has been announced by the group for a September 13th release. The band’s new single “Filthy Rich” is a dramatic sonic strut back into the busy Brooklyn music scene, a swagger-filled track with an opening guitar riff too cool to forget. The band’s last album Supersonic Nothing was making the rounds in 2016, spreading its Sonic Youth-influenced tunes and making a name for Big Cheese’s noisy brand of garage rock. Three years later the band has refined its sound, filtering out some of the noise, but not abandoning it - it bubbles up more subtly in the brand new track which also flashes enough grunge to excite '90s rock lovers. The band appears to have a big end of the year in store, but for now, it is business as usual as a performance at Art at the Footlight in Queens awaits on July 25th. We are premiering “Filthy Rich” for you below. - Rene Cobar





Adam Melchor's "Joyride" is a lesson in letting go

Adam Melchor's songs are stories about family—and how the experiences he's acquired with time gain a deeper meaning as he grows up. On his latest single, "Joyride," the LA-via-New Jersey singer-songwriter writes about the challenge of letting go when it's the best course of action to take, using his parents' stolen childhood truck as a symbol that mirrors their eventual divorce—a lesson in perspective that taught him to value those valuable moments before they're gone. The clamor of a trumpet only augments his reflection, an instrument that brings clarity of thought to his otherwise acoustic rumination.

"Joyride" follows the release of his sophomore EP, Plan on You, which was released earlier this year. Melchor will join Rodrigo and Gabriella on a string of tour dates, including a hometown show at the Greek Theater on July 23. Watch the accompanying video below. Juan Rodríguez
