American Television's "Sorry Sara"

American Television recently released the first song off of their Sorry Sara EP, titled ‘Sorry Sara’. ‘Sorry Sara’ opens with a resonating guitar chord laying calmly below complementing fast-paced chord progressions. The lyrics figuratively scream "zero fucks given". Lead vocalist Steve Rovery is simultaneously apologizing to Sara for keeping her awake as shit hits the fan, and apologizing for the less exciting nights which presumably allows her to slip into the internal hell that a quiet night can bring. You can catch them celebrating(?) Easter on April 19th at Mackey's American Pub in Manassas. --Hannah Brady

The Boundary Stones

Complete with entertaining, repetitive lyrics and a banjo, The Boundary Stones are truly strange, and I love it. Writing an explanation for the lyrics in their self-titled album is impossible; “jellyfish in a black hole” is repeated 12 times in under two and a half minutes in their appropriately titled song, Jellyfish In A Black Hole. Weird kid folk is officially a thing, and The Boundary Stones made it happen. Their album is available on Bandcamp and you can see them live at The Lab's Fest Too on June 26. --Hannah Brady

BRNDA Record Release!!

It's probably the most anticipated release in DC in 2014. At least it's the release I've been anticipating with the most impatience. BRNDA has, until now, only given us a few hints of how fun and interesting they are, a short glimpse of how delightful their sound is. The few tracks released earlier this year sounded strange and familiar, jarring and accessible. It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Fred Schneider singing anti-folk songs with Sebadoh! No. It's BRNDA. And now, finally, they have released their debut album, brenda. Do you see what they did there? If you aren't at the record release show, like, right now (at Rock and Roll Hotel with The Sea Life and The Walking Sticks) to pick up the album, they'll be back soon with more after a short tour (that I can't find exact details about at this point, but their website suggests I'm not lying, and it includes an instore performance at Crooked Beat Records, with Mobius Strip, on April 15th). Enjoy. --Natan Press

Stream Canker Blossom's new Gooner.

I Hate Everyone is officially the perfect song to hate everyone to. Think of The Descendants with female vocals, and you've got Canker Blossom. Baltimore-based pop-punk band Canker Blossom brings the punk back into “pop-punk” scene. Strong female vocals run the band’s new album, Gooner, smashing their way over the fast-paced guitar riffs that punks worldwide have always loved. --Hannah Brady
