Hurry Record Release Show at Everybody Hits May 6

This evening at Everybody Hits locals Hurry will be celebrating the release of their new LP Guided Meditation, out now via Lame-O-Records. The positive reviews have already started coming in for the album, and are well-deserved. The project has come a long way from Matt Scottoline’s bedroom (probably?) to a tight and polished trio with 2 LPs under the belt. The group is filled out by the DeCarolis duo of Rob (ex-Univox) and Joe (Psychic Teens), who play drums and bass respectively. Markedly more produced, Guided Meditation drops a lot of the fuzz for nimble lead guitar lines and shifts in dynamics. Not to say there isn’t still a bunch of crunchy guitars, because there are, but the range of Scottoline’s songwriting and the bands attention to detail are more apparent on this latest batch of recordings. Fans of Teenage Fanclub will still dig this album, but so will fans of Brian Wilson. The guys from Hurry also recruited a bunch of friend’s to come along for the ride tonight, which includes Telepathic, Fake Problems frontman Chris Farren, and Cave People. Everybody Hits, 529 W Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $5, All Ages - Adam G.

Bellwire charms with quirky singles off upcoming album

“You got your path, oh I got mine” sings Tyler Burwood in Boston’s quartet Bellwire’s new single “Time Out.” The song, a jangly reflection speckled with vibrant guitar chords, bubbling drums, and monotone vocals, is a single off their upcoming album Dog Thoughts, which is set to be released on May 24. The album, if the singles are any indication, ranges from mellow, borderline melancholic ruminations evident in “JAKL” to spastic bouts in “Let It Shine,” (streaming below) another single with energetic guitars sputtering exuberantly into a solo where the chords stretch out and slacken the pace before dying out into feedback. A quirky aural exploration of age and relationships, Dog Thoughts seems to be shaping up to an entertaining listen. Keep tabs on Bellwire’s Facebook page for any upcoming shows and take a listen to their single below.


Keep NYC insane! Guerilla Toss, PC Worship and Palberta play Palisades on 06.04

We believe the health of a musical scene can be measured by the amount of bands that are completely out of their mind, and also by the amount of music fans interested in attending their shows. In this regard, there's a quality gig at Palisades in about a month (Saturday June 4th) that shines a bright, although rather psychotic, light on NYC, involving two local bands that sound nothing short of irrational (Palberta - pictured - and Guerilla Toss) and one coming across as "seriously disturbed" (PC Worship). Taking inspiration from subversive movements like No Wave and early Post Punk, without sounding simply amateurish (that's the hard part!), these groups represent NYC's current sound of "uncompromise" - and the sparkle that keeps the Rock'n'Roll flame alive in this problematic and increasingly art-hostile city.

New Music Video: "Wedding Singer" - Modern Baseball

Below is a new music video for Modern Baseball's track "Wedding Singer," which is the latest single from the group's forthcoming album Holy Ghost. In it, the lovable quartet is the house band inside the brain of the video's protagonist, who is having a shitty day until he hooks up with pink-wigged cutie driving a hearse. Things get a little Twilight Zone-y, but the romance eventually blossoms. Holy Ghost comes out on May 13 via Run For Cover Records, and the band will be doing a special in-store performance at Long in the Tooth on Thursday, May 12.
