Beat the Heat with a Little Bit of Intimacy

We're not talking about sexual intimacy here, though by all means get freaky. But tonight, a nice relaxing night will hit Bunk Bar with acoustic force. 

Nick Delffs translated his mammoth aptitude for guitar playing and songwriting from his established Shakey Hands project to his work with Tiburones, but more relevantly, in his solo effort Death Songs. His rich vocal quality adds dimension to his production, and also helps keep his "one man on stage" live performances intriguing. Expect this performance to include a mixture of not yet released material as well as favorites from his vast discography.

Leaving his usual post as the frontman of the more heavier rock band And And And, Nathan Baumgartner will be sharing some of the band's past, present and future songs in their original form, as they all begin acoustically during the writing process. Baumgartner's knack for creating songs of emotional turmoil will only be showcased more when backed by the personal playing of them on an acoustic guitar.

Joining Delffs and Baumgartner will be Christopher Francis and his soul-infused folk, swaddled by his crooning, husky voice. You might recognize him from playing with the Portland Cello Project, but you'll definitely remember him for his solo efforts.

Tickets to tonight's show are only $5, with music starting at 9 pm.  





New Videos: "Mudmouth" & "Domingo" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - Mumblr

Mumblr recently spent some time with the folks from Out of Town Films at their Berks Warehouse HQ. The two resulting performance videos for “Mudmouth” and “Domingo” - both of which are featured on band’s latest release The Never Ending Get Down (Fleeting Youth Records) - display an alluring fragile yet volatile dynamic. “Mudmouth” gently wades in, before the gushing instrumental stream is opened, while “Domingo” immediately brews an ambiance of expansive, entrenching heaviness.





Shana Falana prepares for release of sophomore album + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

After perfecting their nuanced sound via touring and single releases, the shoegaze duo, Shana Falana, impressed critics with a 2015 debut LP titled Set Your Lightning Fire Free. Follow-up album, Here Comes the Wave is scheduled for a fall release later this year. The band's sound hits all the right sensory marks dealing in positive wonderment and a sense of discovery. Vocals, as sung by singer/guitarist Shana, soar over chiming guitars and tom-tom drums, all of which keep pace with affected, drone-y guitars.

Vomitface celebrates debut album release at Alphaville on 8.28

Vomitface formed shortly after Hurricane Sandy when two of its members found themselves trapped in their home writing songs about their depressing surroundings, and released two EPs in 2014 and 2015. Evoking the sounds of Nirvana and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the lead single off their upcoming album “Senior Pictures” is a sludgy grungy track that features crunchy spastic guitars over a steady rhythm section. Front-man Jared Micah delivers lines like “I like the subtle way you roll your eyes” in a deadpan tone before erupting into a raw and gritty scream during the song's final seconds. The trio recently released a music video for the song directed by Jimmy Fontaine and Nick Bilardello. It depicts the group rocking out in a gritty warehouse setting and on the rooftop of a New York City building, through uneven camera movements that match their angsty brand of rock. Vomitface’s debut full length Hooray For Me will be released on August 26th via Help Yourself Records, and they will be celebrating its release on August 28th at Alphaville in Brooklyn! Stream their latest single Dramamine below! - John Honan
