Baltimore alt-dance rockers The Milestones host groovy April Fool's lineup at Ottobar, 4/1

 This Saturday, Baltimore's favorite dance rock sons are back with at Ottobar, hosting the show and bringing their friends. The Milestones are blessing the gig with their oh-so infectious rock and roll, replete with saucy guitar riffs and gravelly vocals spilling out from the stage. Playing the night (in reverse order) will be friends of the band Luna June – a catchy melodic rock quintet from Towson, The (aforementioned) Milestones, The Fun Boys – an extremely energetic experimental garage band out of Frederick, Copper Marmalade – an experimental pop singer-songwriter hailing from Baltimore, and the openers will be Stevie Matthews' Analog Kids – a Batlimore-based trio that plays barebones, cut-and-dried rock music.

 The night's going to be one to remember and one not worth missing, so catch this stellar lineup of Maryland's finest rock music at Ottobar, 8pm, 4/1. $10 advance, $12 at the door. -Jonathan Goodwin

PREMIERE: Barra Brown - "Poem No. 8: The Thread (feat. Gregory Uhlmann)"

Conceptually speaking, the basis of Barra Brown's Poem Project is something to pay much attention to. Coming out on Cavity Search next month, Poem Project takes Barra Brown's single "Poem" and sees it interpreted by eight different musicians from across the country. From members of groups like Ages and Ages, The Shins and Radiation City among others, Poem Project's participating artists breathe new life into an already amazing song.

Under a set of specific parameters, each artist was allowed to play with the original structure of the song while providing their own lyrics as part of the transformation. The one of particular focus today is from Los Angeles folk musician Gregory Uhlmann, who produced the softly intimate folk of "Poem No. 8: The Thread." Uhlmann's orchestration has made for a beautifully minimal track, led by rich vocals and slow, warm instrumentation.

Listen to "Poem No. 8: The Thread" below and be on the lookout for Poem Project's release April 7.

Second Still releases dark, hypnotic new track "Strangers"

Second Still are crossing a perfect middle ground between goth rock and post-punk on their brooding new single, "Strangers". Inspired by a dangerous relationship that mixes pain with pleasure, "Strangers" oozes with a dark and seductive soundscape that's enhanced by Suki San's gravelly tone. Its patiently hypnotic guitars and murky drum machine sounds are a lovely homage to a time that continues to resonate today.

"Strangers" is taken off the the trio's self-titled debut, which is out on April 7 via Manic Depression Records. The band are also scheduled to perform on April 16 at The Echo.
