Max Bornstein - Swanky New Solo Tune "Dance Bar"

Max Bornstein is a multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter from Toronto. Max is a member of Toronto indie-rock crew Goodbye Honolulu. He has just released his latest solo single “Dance Bar” last month. This laid back tune has catchy melodies laying nicely with the crystal clear guitars giving the tune a mature feel. It kinda gives me vacation vibes…or maybe it’s just cold here and I’d rather be on a beach right now. Stay tuned for Max’s next solo gig and in the meantime you can see Goodbye Honolulu live on December 15th in Toronto at the Bain Co-Op Community Center. – Kris Gies

Noble Kids meditate on self and other on "Rain Hat" + announce sophomore LP

Brooklyn indie-rock trio Noble Kids are announcing their forthcoming sophomore album, Messy Pretty, with the release of a new single “Rain Hat,” a sentimental song with ribbons of synth-sounding instrumentation spiraling in the background. "The mess we made was proof / Can’t rid myself of them so soon / And i’m just so glad for you.”

Their upcoming album Messy Pretty meditates on questions of the self and the other—the ways you can misinterpret the identities’ of your loved ones and visa versa. It’s a perfect coming of age track with plain-spoken lyrics and conversational vocals that fits right in as the band grows into their nostalgic pop sound. 

“Messy Pretty is a very human record,” says Barsten in a press release. “There is a sheen to it, but it's messy at its core and direct in a way that made us all a little uncomfortable while making it. That was a new feeling, and it became an important feeling to embrace. It pushed us.”

Listen to “Rain Hat” below. Messy Pretty is out February 2019 and you can pre-order it here.

Lucite Tokki brings tasteful K-Pop to Rockwood on 12.23

Currently based in NYC, Lucite Tokki is a duo that formed in Seoul in 2005 and had a pretty good run so far, releasing four full albums and six EPs. Their songs shares delicate melodies and a variety of instruments, from the acoustic to the electronic, that are the basis of their always sparse arrangements. Their latest album "L+" features both Korean and English lyrics and delivers plenty of charming pop moments. Our favorite songs is opener "every you" (streaming), which use a jazzy piano progression to build a sophisticated soul pop composition filled with nods to the masters of the genre from the early '80s. Lucite Tikki will be performing live at Rockwood Music Hall on December 23rd.
