Shoegazer





Peel Dream Magazine brings imaginative shoegazer to Secret Project Robot on 12.02

Peel Dream Magazine is the brainchild of NYC-based musician Joe Stevens. His debut album, Modern Meta Physic, has soft fuzzy charm with a mellow, psych core. It’s an exploration of retro sounds and new age-y philosophies wrapped up into 13 hazy tracks. The band's name hearkens back to the legendary BBC DJ John Peel, and its sound is also beholden to the past; part Velvet Underground and part Stereolab, PDM captures the warmth of nostalgia with its samples of old-school late tv programs, while transporting you to an entirely new era through its psych rock and lo-fi musings. In the best shoegazer tradition, Stevens’ airy vocal melodies are often barely audible in the mix, buried under the fuzz of the group's distorted guitars. Listen below, and drift off. You can catch Peel Dream Magazine at Secret Project Robot on 12/2. Sara Nuta

Stewards of Shoegaze, Blushing, Release "The Truth" In Advance of Debut Album

Momentum is the elusive ingredient that local Austin bands crave going into a new release or kicking off a new tour. Thankfully that crucial element is directly correlated to the amount of effort put forth, and local shoegaze quartet, Blushing, are generating awareness with a slew of live shows on a variety of stages. The two husband and wife duos have been playing together since 2015, and their chemisty is uniquely cohesive and powerful for obvious reasons. Bassist/vocalist, Christina Carmona, is a classically trained singer who elevates each track into a celestial soundscape while guitarist/vocalist, Michelle Soto, reverberates an ethereal passion that blends perfectly into each heavenly track. "The Truth" is the first single off of their upcoming debut album, which  is scheduled to be released in early 2019. The single demonstrates a deft mix of distortion, melodic swings and jangled guitars that create a beautiful volute of shoegazed bliss. The female-fronted quartet does not hide in a fugue state of druggy reverb like other shoegazers but, instead opts to slice through the fuzzy pedal effects with dynamic guitar riffs and pounding percussion that proves more epic than meandering. The band's dedication to getting in as many shows as possible before the new album release gives you the opportunity to see Blushing play with Holy Golden at Hotel Vegas on November 14th or you can catch them at Cheer Up Charlies on December 7th!

Hotline share "10 AM" EP, plays Alphaville on 11.12

There is an alluring, melancholy feel to much of New York City based trio Hotline's music. Throughout their recently released 10AM EP a sense of longing and sadness can be felt. “Anywhere Else” leads off with an unadorned jangly pop enhanced by smooth, ethereal vocals. Atypical chord changes emerge, creating a bridge between the primary melodic progression. The universal theme of wanting to be “anywhere else” resonates with those looking to break out of their rut and just “go.” Angular, flowing arpeggios and busy snare drum rolls create the shifting undercurrent on “One Of Us”. However, more structured chords establish an instrumental break between verses, where a songs chorus frequently resides. Adding an extended over two minute open note instrumental coda sees the band dipping into early Sonic Youth territory. “Black Sequins” floats like a whimsical ride on some distant lazy river. Final cut “Soda Lime” moves with pace and purpose, capturing the thematic yearning running through the entire record. Hotline have two shows coming up, playing Alphaville on 11/12 with Wolf Diamond and Hygieia and then on 12/2 at Secret Project Robot. - Dave Cromwell
