Go to the old Top 300 charts



Weekend Warrior, February 27 - March 1

Ever since forming from the remnants of The National Rifle in late 2013, Bondage & Discipline have been hard at work honing their sound and creating material for their debut LP. They've also been recording with Todd McCaughey of Cambridge Sound Studios, and are slated to drop the album later this year. But the band just recently shared its third single, “First Kiss,” which is based on a discarded letter that singer/guitarist Hugh Moretta found on a train. It explores a desirous sentiment that was never shared with the person whom inspired it. It also reveals more of the bands danceable ambient electronic beats that you'll be able to hear if you catch them during the Winter of Y-Not Concert Series at Ortlieb's this Saturday night. They'll be joined by Steve Goldberg's melodic synthpop project Resistor and darkwave trio Blood Sound. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Bill McThrill

New Music Video: "Cordless Phone" - Resistor

Bringing the 80's coming-of-age-teenage-movie vibes, Resistor finds a sweet spot with "Cordless Phone." With guy-gal vocals, they weave their laments amidst bouncing synth lines. And the retro found footage in the music video below completes their aesthetic with tongue-in-cheek.


Free Download: "Falling" (Julee Cruise Cover) - Resistor

Are you a Twin Peaks fan? Well, Resistor certainly is, and to celebrate the David Lynch cult classic being released on blu-ray today, they recorded a cover of Julee Cruise's "Falling," which can be streamed and downloaded below. You can also catch the group performing it live this evening at Silk City.


New Music Video: "Narcissist" - Resistor

Quirky electropop project Resistor, a.k.a. Steve Goldberg, put out a new music video for his song Narcissist, which humorously holds true to its title. You can find the track on his forthcoming album First World Problems. Resistor will be celebrating its release this evening at Bourbon & Branch with Dokument and Telequanta.


Free Download: "Digital Girl" (Resistor Remix) - Work Drugs

The usually smooth sailing sounds of Works Drugs get a hyped up, 8-bit remixing from Resistor for their track "Digital Girl." This version is seriously giving the original (which appears on the band's latest LP Insurgents) a run for its money. You can stream and download the remix for free below.
