Small Crush well, crushes it, with latest album “Blush”

It’s hard to not be charmed by Oakland’s pop rock bunch Small Crush. They’re like The Strokes met a Weezerly guitarist and a crispy-wispy lady vocalist and threw in some extra smiles. Lyrics are often bittersweet and romantic in that man, I’ve been there, type of way. Take the song “Signal Dreams” from their latest album, Blush: “If I’m asleep or awake/what difference does it make/if you’re not here with me?” Killer melodies and like they say, Fun! Natural Fun! We agree and we’re not the only ones. Small Crush killed it at last summer’s Noise Pop and we can’t wait to see them again. Enjoy listening to their songs below and catch them at The Art Boutiki in San Jose on December 22, where they're playing with their Asian Man Record label mates Get Married. - Michelle Kicherer





Cyber Buzz alert: CLAVVS tops Hype Machine Charts with "Lay Back"

Synthpop Brooklyn duo (via Atlanta) CLAVVS has been catching a lot of cyber-fan attention recently by topping the Hype Machine charts with singles Lay Back (streaming) and Slow DiveThe group has already two well received full length albums under their belt, but are showing no signs of slowing down. Atmospheric and easy on the ear without ever sounding banal, this year's singles show a noteworthy growth in the songwriting department, which is a promising sign for a project whose songs aim at moving the listeners' feelings more than their body, boosted by vocalist Amber Renee's soulful and melancholic alto. You can catch them live with TEEN on January 16 at Baby’s All Right.

 





New Track: "Tinted Vision" - Night Bloom

The creative collaboration of J Termini and Patrick Schlitzer, a.k.a. Night Bloom, recently shared a new single. “Tinted Vision” swims in a fluid, R&B groove. With a slinky, soulful, harmonious sound, it's a laidback, dancing track, bringing out both a playful and a sensitive side. Embracing the idea of moving on and living in the moment, while caught up on a person from the past, there’s a tug of war between understanding a theory and putting it into practice.





Color Tongue unveils video for "Over The Moon" + plays Sunnyvale 11.29

Brooklyn psych rockers Color Tongue are premiering here their new video for single Over the Moon, from their three-single EP Bealing Bell, released this past September. The track is (some kind of) love song for a passerby that's at once sweet and borderline indecent, including lyrics like "I'd be over the moon, if you walk with me, we'd fork and we'd sppon." Blending a variety of genres in unexpected and psychedelic ways, the song is mostly based on a colorfully arranged reggae beat, although after minute four things change quite radically, with a slow reprise suddenly morphing into a wall of noise finale. The video itself is also a mix of different footage, where home videos depicting the band are mixed and faded with vintage B-Movies, creating a glittering stream-of-consciousness effect. Color Tongue will celebrate this release with a show at Sunnyvale on November 29 with OOX, Haunted Horses NYC, Castle Black and Private Siren.





Weekend Warrior, November 23 - 25

World Cafe Live will be showcasing a trio of local talents tonight. Clarity of thought arrives via youth as Masie Blu hits the stage. Blu blends soulful vocals, while also injecting a poetic, spoken-word approach. An unwavering confidence and wisdom shine throughout her music, providing a reassuring stability that cultivates a peaceful, motivating atmosphere. When paired with an array of refreshing, liquidy grooves, the power of those words/mantras is unlocked. This evening’s billing will be fortified by the genre-melding electro-experimentations of Kilamanzego, whom continuously creates an imaginative landscape, weaving a seamless quilt of sound that simultaneously celebrates the details and transitions. The silky, synthpop exploits of Gender Work comfortably complete this lineup, sharpening the mind whilst providing the body a vehicle or catalyst to let loose and get down. – Michael Colavita
