Brooklyn rockers Howth release moving Ninja Turtles inspired LP + play Cake Shop on Wednesday (7.1)

It doesn't seem too often that a band looks to rather campy pop culture and comes out with an album that moves. But that is exactly what Brooklyn rock quintet Howth does with their latest effort, "Trashy Milky Nothing Town," referencing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to tell stories of longing and comradeship. On songs such as "Superfreak!" (streaming below), which recalls Wilco's "I'm Always in Love" with its spacey keys, Howth impressively achieves gravitas while alluding to the fantastical. The Ninja Turtles aren't real but Trashy Milk Nothing Town gives them, and its listeners, palpable feeling. Howth plays Cake Shop on Wednesday, 7.1. - Zachary Weg, photo by Bryan Bruchman

The many layers of Havania Whaal

Since 2012 Portland’s Havania Whaal has been making their own rules. Their ethereal sound can be likened to post-punk meets shoegaze...sort of. They call themselves “noise pop”, but when you’re forging new territory the descriptors fall short of the mark. All three members share vocal duties, which adds to the layers and dimension of their reverb-drenched domain. Stepping it up further, they recently created a live stage production with dancers and costumes, the soundtrack of which was the band performing their new cassette release “13 A.D.” Rumor has it that live productions will be a hallmark of Havaia Whaal shows henceforth. They’re touring the east coast with Portland’s Lubec for 10 days starting July 9 in Massachusetts.

See their tour kickoff show at The Know July 2nd. Buy their tape, pop it in the cassette deck of your ‘85 Volvo, and cruise around town lamenting the summer, wearing the darkest shades you can find.

New Track: "Rapidash" - Torito

A heavy, pouncing beat with slices of video game tones lay the groundwork for Torito’s latest. “Rapidash” is fast-paced, lyrical wit that seamlessly connects an array of information, interspersing personal and social commentary. The single was produced by Silly Mane ( of Cult Fortified).

Jackie Cohen unveils debut track "Bold"

Singer-songwriter Jackie Cohen recalls the best of early 70's psychedelic-folk with her withdrawn, honey-toned vocal inflection, a trend that has been proliferating in the last few years with artists such as Jessica Pratt and Amen Dunes. Her first single, "Bold", is a drifting slow burner that showcases her intoxicating country drawl. With the help of madcap Foxygen member Jonathan Rado, who helped arrange the song's twangy, strung-out composition, the sparsity of the track gives Cohen the opportunity to daydream in desirous pleasure as its gentle atmosphere caresses her over an overcast, cloudy haze. 

Cohen is currently working on her first album at Dreamstar Studios with Rado, and "Bold" is proof positive that this fruitful collaboration could ultimately lead into something very haunting and alluring.
