Track Premiere: "Miss California" - Deadfellow

Mesacalifornia: A California Dream is the forthcoming album from Philly's own Deadfellow. Reminiscent of Joseph Arthur in tone, its debut single, “Miss California,” steps out from behind the introductory, acoustic strums and longing slide guitar, gathering percussive momentum. Surrounded by the vibrant glow of strings and horns, Hayden Sammak earnestly voices an open letter of affection, while its subject hovers in the distance as a guiding light home. Mesacalifornia: A California Dream is set to drop on June 9, and Deadfellow will be welcoming its arrival that evening at MilkBoy, where he'll be joined by The Classic Hunt.

Fruit & Flowers play Alphaville on April 28th

Fruit & Flowers return to ALPHAVILLE in Bushwick on April 28th, this time to headline a show after supporting Monograms' LP release show there last week. After performing at SXSW in March, the psych rock quartet has had a busy April playing gigs with other fellow Brooklyn bands and wrapping up a tour across the Midwest. At ALPHAVILLE, they'll share a bill with punk groups C'yotes and Teen Vice, the latter of which includes Tammy Hart of MEN and Joshua Ackley of The Dead Betties. Catch below their latest track "Way Out", written for Speak Into My Good Eye's 3rd Annual 24 Hour Song Writing Challenge, and the live version as the band performed it on Manhattan Neighborhood Network's The Special Without Brett Davis, here. - Will Sisskind

Vacant Lots release new album Endless Night, confirm two US shows and European tour

Following up on their critically acclaimed 2014 debut album “Departure,” the NYC/Burlington duo Vacant Lots have released sophomore LP “Endless Night.”  Building off of a previously established psych-drone base, Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen introduce new sonic elements to their sound. Uncharacteristically, “Night Nurse” (streaming below) adds mechanized electronics and robotic vocals to twangy guitar lines, suggesting a digitized outlaw world portrayed in sci-fi dramas like HBO’s Westworld; the Krafter-esque experiment works.  “Pleasure & Pain” mimic Rolling Stones-style chords and sprinkle otherworldly keyboard elements around an attenuated vocal delivery, while  “Elevation” delves further into electro-dance patterns that skirt the appeal of a band like Depeche Mode.  Reaching the albums longest track at over five and a half minutes, “Empty Space” serves up a trance groove paired with spoken-word vocals.  Eight new tracks in all, the inclusion of nyc underground legend Alan Vega of Suicide’s posthumous scream-of-conscious poetic howl on closer “Suicide Note” delivers the desired validation.  The album can be heard in its entirety here on Spotify. - Dave Cromwell

Buzz Alert: The Rupert Selection Releases New EP, Baseball Practice

The Rupert Selection is a progressive alt-rock power trio from Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA that has curated not only a spellbinding musical vibe, but a darkly intriguing visual style, bridging the multimedia gap.  They're strong sense of narrative and technical skill is plainly apparent in their latest video for "Tree Hands", the opening track on Baseball Practice.  Opening with a haunting soundscape, the EP continues with tight, mixed-meter grooves on "Moon Cats in Taxi Cabs", and consistently progresses through a tale of provocative songwriting and musical prowess.  Check out The Rupert Selection on Bandcamp here, and experience "Tree Hands" below, a music video that will likely become an early favorite for our "Best of 2017" list. -Brian Varneke
