Wooing's "The Clouds" is an otherworldly vision

The Clouds, the newest single by New York’s Wooing, is a release that feels not of this time. Through frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Trachtenburg’s haunting vocals, softly commanded against echoing pedal-laden guitar lines, the band crafts a soundscape that feels both vintage and otherworldly, as if Motown existed in a universe of David Lynch’s making. Even the opening lyrics on “Could Have Been” implore feelings of a disconnect, as Trachtenburg (previously in Supercute! and Prettiots) paints surrealist landscapes wherein she “went to the moon, [and] saw your head up in the clouds” as an eerie, theremin-like sound wanders behind her. Between “Could Have Been” and b-side “In Her Head,” Wooing have stumbled upon visions of the subconscious that could be either dreams or nightmares, but they are captivatingly engrossing nonetheless. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

New Flanafi EP Available for Streaming & Download

Flanafi is a project of Simon Martinez, one half of the Philly-based band Pulgas. While Pulgas’ songs often consist of large and dynamic rock arrangements, Flanafi leans toward a more mellow, neo-soul vibe. Martinez’s musical partner, Zane Shields, makes an appearance on drums for title track and EP opener, "You live here?", and his sister Eva Martinez provides vocals on "cheese plate". Consistent throughout Martinez’s projects is an impressive ability to synthesize exciting songwriting with skillful sonic engineering. You live here? is a brief collection of songs, but packs in plenty of moments to appreciate and zone to. A welcome companion to cozy up with as we enter a collective winter hibernation. - Josh Kelly





New Track: "Spoiler" - Lester

“Spoiler” is a new single from the quartet of Lester. As languid instrumentals stir and matriculate, vocals vaporize into the ether. A hushed, slow-burning, anti-gravity experience is in reach. Allow yourself to drift and fade away.

New Music Video: "Unreasonable Rider" - Fine Jewelers

The creative pairing of Matt Korvette (Pissed Jeans) & DP Helmer, a.k.a. Fine Jewelers, recently dropped its debut EP Braindance Through The Midnight D - Beat via BANK Records. “Unreasonable Rider” dispenses noise-laced, ultra-pulsating beats as distorted roaring vocals reign down over the top. Unrelenting intensity tips the techno scales the limits. Its video, which stars and is directed by Hackey Garbáge, is a lavish, humorous display, whose calm demeanor is in direct contrast to the track's sonic aggression.





Fresh Buzz: Barrie tour with Miya Frolick

In the the beginning of 2018, Dream-pop five-piece Barrie put out shimmering singles, “Canyons,” and “Tal Uno,” before releasing a 12” in October aptly titled Singles. The Brooklyn-based band hail from all over the country (and world), but have recently converged in New York to collaborate and write songs together. Their dreamy sound puts an ambient spin on retro synth pop, which makes for ultra gorgeous tracks that swirl in a neon glow. In 2019, they’ll be hitting the road in support of Miya Frolick in a US and Canada tour. Listen to "Michigan" below. Sara Nuta
