Bobby Long's new video "Nautical" is a comic thriller

You guys know the book Misery by Stephen King, right? The one where a novelist is captured by a crazed superfan and forced to write her a novel while chained up in Colorado? Well, New York multi-genre singer-songwriter Bobby Long clearly has a penchant for King’s work, with his newest music video “Nautical” a gallows humor interpretation of said story - except in this case, Long plays the lunatic, capturing and imprisoning his friend and producer Jack Dawson. While the video is an entire production unto itself, its bleakly hilarious visuals - where Long forces Dawson to play a concert to a sordid collection of mannequins and goats - repurpose the normally heartfelt lyricism of “Nautical” to comic effect; particularly, the tune’s chorus of “I’ll be alone with you” reads entirely differently in its new context. I won’t spoil its ending; watch the video below, and be sure to check out the rest of Long’s most recent studio effort, SULTANS, out now on Compass Records. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Sharkmuffin share single "Serpentina," play Alphaville on 4/5

Garage rockers Sharkmuffin will release their latest EP “Gamma Gardening” on April 5th via Exploding In Sound Records. The five track's depict an outlandish sci-fi rock opera centered around a character named Serpentina who is pursued by The Atomic Gardening Society. EP opener “Receptionist” sets the sonic tone for the entire record with its loose, live-in-the-studio vibe. Overall, the songs are built around an angular bass-lines, a loose, busy hi-hat, chunky guitar chords and Tarra Thiessen's trademark caterwauling vocal style. “Designer Baby” drops down into a more sinister, echo-heavy tone breaking off into multiple tempos and b-movie-stylke outerspace effects. Current single “Serpentina” (streaming below) chugs along via Jordyn Blakely's syncopated percussion, pitch-bended guitar strokes and Natalie Kirch's rubbery bassline. “Too Many Knobs” is an over six minute raveup that sounds like Fun House-era Stooges. Final track “Fate” (their first single) brings things back to earth with a strolling, guitar-heavy love-tinged theme. The band will play their EP release show at Alphaville on 4/5 with Haybaby, CATTY and Gustaf. -Dave Cromwell
