Buzz Alert: Torres' video of "Skim" makes The Guardian's Best of 2017 List

Torres' musical path could be used as an ideal example of what should happen to a musician who dares to move from Nashville to NYC - something she did in 2015, soon after releasing her sophomore album Sprinter. Her 2017 follow up, Three Futures, reveals a more daring artist with an uber-edgy sound that makes abundant use of synths and guitar pedals. The tracks share a claustrophobic atmosphere that seems like an unavoidable by-product of the transition from the big spaces of Music City to the "coziness" of the Big Apple. The labels took notice (the album was out on legendary 4AD), the critics applauded (Three Futures is one of the top-ranked albums on Metacritic.com with a score of 79) and the fans multiplied. And more recently, the UK newspaper The Guardian included the video for Skin (streaming below) in its Best of 2017 list. Since the release, Torres has been gigging non-stop in the US, Canada and Europe.





New Music Video: "Lima Beans" - Secret Nudist Friends

Featured on their EP Susan, Secret Nudist Friends recently shared a video for the single, “Lima Beans”. Shot at Tralfamadore, the band invites one to step inside, sit down, and have a beverage. That, coupled with up-close performance footage, captures a hazy, garage-psych atmosphere. Secret Nudist Friends are slated on a billing tonight at Kung Fu Necktie that will include Gender Work, Kelsey Cork & The Swigs, and The Smirks. They will also be presenting their first official music video at Good How Are You #2, a local artist showcase being held next Thursday, January 18 at Tralfamadore.





Milhouse - Toronto Math Rock Duo!

Ah Milhouse…my favorite Simpsons character. Of course a band named after Milhouse would need to have a slight sense of geekiness to them. So here is Milhouse – a two piece math rock duo from Toronto. Edna Krabapple would be proud. They have an EP available now featuring the tune “Blood & Bathrust.” An instrumental jam with slick guitar licks, wild drum techniques and all the mathy time signatures you could ask for. See it all for yourself live on January 28th at Bovine Sex Club. – Kris Gies

Bethlehem Steel returns to Silent Barn with fuzzy alt-rock 1.17

Bethlehem Steel is loud. The band’s music commands the room with intensity and force. The group’s most recent album Party Naked Forever, released in November of 2017, brought that music to a new focus with tumbling fuzz rockers and stop-start rhythmic treats. It’s an album that successfully emphasizes the band’s tumultuous live power and serves as a persuasive argument for taking the time to catch the quartet on a stage. You’ll have that opportunity on January 17th when Bethlehem Steel headlines Silent Barn. – Cameron Carr





Debut Dominy LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Wet Leather, the new album from Dominy, was recently released via Blix YZ Records. Saturated in a mixture of warm melodies with folky Americana roots and a surf-rockin' sway, the songs hint of a pleasant, grooving future. Stumbling down the road in that slightly inebriated, unobstructed-sing-along manner, the record provides a boost to one’s mood. Kung Fu Necktie will be playing host to Dominy’s album release show on Friday, January 12, where they will be supported by Sun Hat and Comfy.
