Stove plays Shea Stadium on 7.04

Stove is the new solo project from Connecticut native, Ovlov member Steve Hartlett and other friends mostly based in Brooklyn. The band released its debut album Is Stupider in November of 2015 on Exploding in Sound, opffering a brand of slacker rock heavily influenced by '90s acts like Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement. Catchy melodies and memorable choruses abound in tracks like “Wet Food” and “Dusty Tree," and so does the tendency towards introspective and self-deprecating lyrics. “Dusty Weather” (streaming) is the cleanest sounding track on the album, deviating from the band signature sound, until the fuzzy burst of melody at the end. Stove will be playing Shea Stadium on July 4th. - John Honan

Arc Iris release new video for “Kaleidoscope” + plays Cafe` Nine on 07.21

The staggeringly beautiful stylings of Providence, RI group Arc Iris have been brought to life in their new video for “Kaleidoscope,” a single off of their upcoming album “Moon Salon.” The three piece ensemble, which includes former Low Anthem member Jocie Adams, uses tantalizing vocal melodies, mysterious cello lines, emotionally-charged drum beats, and lush harmonies to create mesmerizing performances, both acoustically and visually. The new video is no exception - it features a blended interaction of dancers, musicians, and light for a psychedelic display, reminiscent of Joanna Newsom, Fleetwood Mac, and Animal Collective. The video takes you on a fantastic journey through their sound, which is unique, compelling, and enchanting. You can catch Arc Iris’ enchanting aura this July at their C’mon Everybody residency in Brooklyn, starting on July 5, and in New Haven, CT on July 21. - Dan Rome

Calico Blue to bring vitalized Surf sound to O'Brien's Pub on 7/1

If asked to name a band that could be representational of what's popular in indie music today, Amherst's Calico Blue could serve as an unlikely, if not interesting answer. They have a dreamy, nostalgic sound based on pristine guitars, minimalist tendencies á la The XX, and deeply sad vocals reminscent of a lo-fi version of Lana Del Rey. Their self-described "surfer blues" is able to capture vintage elements and conteporary influences and coalesce them into something new and intriguing. Their 2015 self-titled album drags the listener down with heavy lyrics while also keeping them afloat with light guitar work. You can check them out at O'Brien's Pub on 7/1. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Synth-pop duo Kid Coyote to play Plough and the Stars on 6/22

At the risk of assessing a small sample size consisting of one single, it's clear that synth/indie pop duo Kid Coyote have a lot of potential. Their lone track, "Full Moon Rising," is reminiscent of Phantogram's chiller, Big Boi-less offerings. Clara Berry's smooth and spacey vocals hang over Joe O'Neil hybrid electro-acoustic production, giving their music a feeling both eery and smooth. With just this tune to their name, it will be exciting to see what else Kid Coyote will bring to the table when they perform at the Plough and Stars on 6/22. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Bent Knee release new album, 'Say So'

Bent Knee keeps going bigger and bolder with each project they release.  Never being afraid to blend genres before, on Say So the six-piece Boston band embarks on a sprawling musical journey that seems to hit every stop on the pop-avant garde spectrum. Not discrediting the band's impressively diverse instrumental arrangements, frontwoman and keyboardist Courtney Swain's cinematic vocals stand out as the sound's core. Whereas the instruments and sounds around her are constantly changing, Swain's voice provides an anchor that never lets the band's complex sound descend into unruly juxtaposition of elements. Bent Knee are about to go on a North American and European tour to promote 'Say So'. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber
