A Deer A Horse to bring blistering noise-y sludge rock to St. Vitus 5/1

A Deer A Horse has a penchant for tearing through the tidy lines separating genres with reckless abandon, and on their latest EP release, Backswimmer, the Brooklyn-based threepiece fuses together styles and feels with the might of an atom smasher.  Sludgy, doom metal riffs, meet angular, dissonant melody lines, and are paired with deep, bewitching female-led vocals, that are set against a rotation of primative tom-toms, and indie-rock beats. Take all of this and consider that--somehow--the band manages to showcase strong hook-writing chops and pop sensibility. A Deer A Horse is schizo-rock at its absolute finest and their EP is an aggresive, blistering mind-meld that we can't get enough of. Check out the band's title track streaming below, and see them live at St. Vitus 5/1 alongside Dad, Darkwing, My Heart and the Real World, and Samantha Noise. - Olivia Sisinni

watergh0st brings goth glo-fi to Brooklyn Bazaar on April 9th

The music of watergh0st (a.k.a. Rachel Roth) sounds much different live and unleashed than it does when contained in any physical or digital medium. As you might realize on April 9th at Brooklyn Bazaar, her songs contain an energy both rebellious and compassionate. The spectral sound of watergh0st's material stretches up into the heavens and digs deep into the grit of the earth, which makes the exact genre hard to identify. You might find similarities to Crystal Castles, as her rich and moving voice soars over mysterious looping sound waves layered with bells, echoing industrial percussion, and guitars. You'll find these layers prevalent -- especially in the vocals -- on her latest release, "Take The Time You Need". We are streaming below her newest release, the haunting "dusk".

At the April 9th Brooklyn Bazaar show, watergh0st will perform with prog-metal philosophers TVRKMENISTAN, "mad-sad" post-rock outfit Tiny Gun, groove metal alchemists KTHRTK, and the once-and-forever experimental math pop wizards NO SHOES. All NO SHOES fans weep, for this is their final show. - Will Sisskind


New Music Video: "Parallel Nightmares" - Moor Mother

Camae Ayewa, a.k.a. Moor Mother, takes to the woods in her latest lyric video for "Parallel Nightmares," with co-director Bob Sweeney. Found on 2016's Fetish Bones (Don Giovanni Records), the track comingles with the shaky, blurry, black & white footage in ominous fashion that feels more frightening than a hike with the folks of Blair Witch Project or doctored video sightings of Slender Man. It's a match made in your deepest, darkest fears. Moor Mother is set to kickoff her European tour tomorrow at the World Minimal Music Festival in Amsterdam. (Photo by Bob Sweeney)
