Baltimore pop-folk septet Haint Blue releases new EP, plays Baltimore Folk Fest, 10/24

Baltimore’s own Haint Blue is back with a beautifully crafted self-titled EP out earlier this month. The seven-strong group artfully amalgamates poppy beats with Americana roots and instruments, producing a sound akin to Shovels & Rope or Avett Brothers, but still apart in its context and tonal shifts. Haint Blue has layers of pain and living in its lyrics, wrapped carefully in cheery beats and twangy harmonics. Grab a copy today and check them out at the Baltimore Folk Fest on 10/24. -Jonathan Goodwin

NOVA-based indie folk group Wylder releases new single, plays in Jammin' Java BOTB finals, 8/21

They’re from Fredericksburg and they sure know how to compile a track. Wylder takes all that is good about indie pop and folk and fuses it into a beautiful, symphonic melody. Their brand new single, Sunstroke, would fit perfectly as part of a movie soundtrack where everything turns out all right in the end. Emulating the sound of greats like The Polyphonic Spree, Wylder’s quality stands out as they’ll compete in the Jammin’ Java battle of the bands finals in Vienna on 8/21. Give them a listen and your support when they take the stage at 8pm! -Jonathan Goodwin

DC hard rockers Night Streets to play The Black Cat, 9/2

Taking cues from such legends as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, Nights Streets crank out loud, high-octane rock on every track. With vocals on par with Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, crashing cymbals, and crunchy guitar bridges, this is the kind of music you go crazy listening to, locking yourself in your garage with a baseball bat and your mom’s expensive vases. They're playing third in the lineup at The Black Cat on 9/2. Doors at 7:30, $12 for an awesome show. -Jonathan Goodwin

Indie pop rock trio The Duskwhales play the Rock & Roll Hotel, 9/19

Rocking their way up from Manassas to DC’s best venues, The Duskwhales captivate their listeners with their relentless energy and dazzling rhythms. Fun beats and an uncanny ability to mix blues rock roots with pop and indie overtones makes them a formidable act to behold. Pooling influences from a diverse array of musicians, from Vampire Weekend to Jack White to The Doors, listening to their recent self-titled LP is akin to giving the brain a vacation. They’ll bring their high-buzz performance to the Rock & Roll Hotel on 9/19. 21+ and $8. -Jonathan Goodwin

Reggae rock group Higher Education releases new album and rocks out at The 8x10, 8/21

Higher Education is a talented four-piece hailing from College Park and their sound is a veritable cornucopia of roots rock, reggae, and funk. Vocalists Danny and Petey Devaney display their versatility well, belting like Sublime’s Bradley Nowell, drawing listeners in to the music. Hardly a better dance groove is imaginable as Higher Education slides from punky fast beats to slow island jams effortlessly. Catch them treating an audience at their album release party at The 8x10 on 8/21. Make sure to pick up a copy of "Would You Like Fries With That," too! -Jonathan Goodwin
