Brian Harding (ex-Ex Cops) debuts new project Blonde Ambition

Blond Ambition, the new pop project of former Ex Cops frontman Brian Harding (who recently relocated from NYC to LA), is set to release debut album 'Slow All Over' on May 5 via Brooklyn's Swoon City Music. On Thursday, March 23, Harding will play an intimate, stripped-down performance at The Event Space at Genius (84 4th Street) -- the show is free with RSVP.

Grim Streaker to lay down some noise-indie-garage vibes at Cape Town 3/25

Kicking off with just a couple of stick clicks, Grim Streakers’ debut track, “Guts,” errupts in a rush of noise and punk-rock bravado. The Brooklyn-based band thrusts the listen into an engulfing wall of sound that's at once thick, trashy and catchy. The release is a spitfire of a track that does it all while just clocking above the 2-minute mark, and if it's a sign of what's to come, then we're expecting big things out of the group. Catch Grim Streaker live at Cape Town 3/25 alongside Cold Fronts, The Howl, and The Boobies, and be sure to stream "Guts" below. - Olivia Sisinni

New Music Video: "Get Used to It" - Pretty Digital

What begin as a calming, airy synth while sprawled out on a couch quickly transforms into a heart–pounding, night-crawling endeavor in the new video for Pretty Digital's "Get Used to It". Directed by Jay Yachetta, the footage captures the high-speed, bright lights, bass-bumping, electro intensity that the song induces. However, the twist of Nala the dog occupying the driver’s seat, when the text conversation suggests that Justin Weismiller is walking him, provides an ironic conclusion.

Dirty Blondes to bring their slow garage-psych jams to Cape House tonight (03.22)

While there are a few bands operating under the Dirty Blondes monkier populating various reaches of the internet, the Brooklyn-based fourpiece is the only group that really lives up to the name--laying down growling, blitzed out garage-psych jams that could have easily just rolled out of bed. The band busts out tracks with jangly guitars, lax vocals, and the dynamic deftness of the Pixies, but the delicious layer of lo-fi fuzz is what will really leave you feeling dirty. Catch Dirty Blondes live at Cape House tonight (3/22) alongside Surf Rock is Dead, Better Head, and DA POP, but in the meantime, you can get your fix by streaming them below. - Olivia Sisinni
