Weeping Icon's self-titled is perfect noise, play DRTY SMMR 1.10

New York punk veterans Weeping Icon returned late last year to deliver their self-titled LP, an exciting venture into the worlds of noise and electronic, a disorienting effort that upends expectations at every corner. Alternating between guitar-driven rides and sound collage vignettes, Weeping Icon basks in the experimental, effortlessly switching between spoken-word dirges on tracks like “Natural Selection” to screaming hostile takeovers on songs like “Power Trip” and “Ripe for Consumption.” In incorporating facets both harsh and experimental, the band taps into uncharted sonic territory that is engrossing and terrifying; listen below, and catch Weeping Icon at DRTY SMMR on January 10th, alongside Faccia Brutta and SIGNAL.

Get soaked and stoked with Wyndup Kid, play Muchmore's 1.9

Garden State punk trio Wyndup Kid exude the type of energy you’d find at a New Brunswick basement party, and their latest effort S(t)OAKED is a rager that’s moments away from getting shut down by the cops. A four track melodically surfy EP, the band brings all bangers, laying down fast rock n roll with hilarious, indulgent lyricism; when they’re not wilding out after consuming a drugged “Spiked Cake” or driving 80 down the parkway on “Turnpike Kids,” they’re speedily recounting relationships on “Josie” or wilding so much insofar as they’re being escorted from the premises on “Kick Me Out.” Fun, vivacious, and never boring, Wyndup Kid embody the youthful energy you’d expect from three wild New Jersey dudes (and I write that as a formerly wild dude from Jersey myself). Stream them below, and catch them shred at Muchmore’s on January 9th. —Connor Beckett McInerney


Winnebago Vacation's "Camp Somewhere" is a muted, lonely affair, plays Muchmore's 1.5

Queens-based “folk/goth” outfit Winnebago Vacation combines the quiet solitude of bedroom pop with the acoustic textures of the great outdoors on debut LP Camp Somewhere. A project of Queens-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eli Frank, each of the record’s eleven tracks deftly weave guitars, muted lofi drums, and echoing Casiotones to create soft, somber melodies and lonely lyrical testaments, a well-balanced mix of emo, electronica, and indie rock. Overall, it’s an excellent collection of songs for driving down an open road with no destination in mind; listen below, and catch Winnebago Vacation at Muchmore’s on January 5th, supporting Barely Civil. —Connor Beckett McInerney


Twist and shout with Egg Cream's new LP, plays Alphaville 1.7

Jangle pop project Egg Cream crafts vintage bops evocative of sock hops and soda bars with a grunge-y twist. New record Can’t Stop The Cream is a smattering of concise, primarily minute-and-change songs characterized by catchy hooks, drum machines, bravado-laden vocals and synth flairs, creating music you’d expect from a parallel dimension Buddy Holly. This album will immediately be at home with fans of Christopher Owens / Girls, or those with a penchant for rockabilly seeking a more contemporary spin on the genre; give it a listen bellow, and see Egg Cream at Alphaville on January 7th alongside Paddlefish and ZZZwalk.
