Fruit & Flowers brings their psych post punk to Shea Stadium on 11.13

Fruit & Flowers is a female fronted Brooklyn band that's been playing a gazillion shows lately (and seem to have as many scheduled), which is always a good sign. Oh, and, for the record, when we say "female fronted" we mean to say that whoever is not on the front of the stage (the drummer) is the dude out of four band members. At this stage they only have one song out for streaming, a slow burning track called "Turquoise," featuring a melody that is tele-porting us back to the days of Rain Parade and those other spacey American psych bands of the late '80s. If you are curious about the rest of their repertoire, you can check hear it live at Shea Stadium on 11.13.


Very Fresh releases 'Hey, It's Me!' EP at Shea Stadium on 11.13

Cindy Lou Gooden, aka Very Fresh, is a quirky and multi-faceted talent. She spent the last year recording on Ava Luna’s last album, touring with Kino Kimino (Sonic Youth) and Leapling on bass, and prior to that, forming the all-female Pavement cover band, Babement, with Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis. She also worked on her third EP to date, 'Hey, it's Me!,' which reveals a songwriter drawn in many directions. Opening track 'California Low,' with its whispered beginning, soon exploding into a '90s influenced guitar-pop chorus, only to settle again into a mellow bridge, sums up well what comes next - although this track is pretty darn out there. Our favorite song here is 'Schedule IV' (streaming), which develops in more linear ways, revealing Cindy's melodic talent and her remarkable voice. Don't miss her EP release show at Shea Stadium on 11.13.


New King Azaz Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Post-punk duo King Azaz has released a new record, entitled Spiritus Mundi. Christopher Johnson and Sarah Schardt explore emotively personal places, with a gritty, jangly instrumental dichotomy. Tearing down the exterior security of walls, the strength of earnest exposure with the noisy punch of uninhibited, unified percussion and guitar emerges. The album was recorded and mixed by Kyle Pulley at The Headroom Philadelphia.


New Music Video: "Oversteeped" - Littler

While Littler might have officially gone on hiatus this past summer, the band has shed some light at the end of the tunnel with their new music video for "Oversteeped". The single is off the four-piece's upcoming EP Bad Hands, which was produced by Swearin's Kyle Gilbride and is slated for release in 2017. The group's latest video was shot on 16mm film by Kenny Suleimanagich, and directed by Dylan Hansen-Fliedner.
