New Whaler EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Look into Crystal Balls, the new EP from Whaler, and listen. Set sail on the surf/shoegazing vessel. The sway of the water dynamically alters between pleasantly adrift and treacherous tides. One can find a temporary home in the melodic haze, but remain alert of the humbling hazards.





Pllush releases single "Big Train" in anticipation of debut LP 'Stranger to the Pain'

“Big Train” (streaming below) is the third and final single to be released off San Francisco-based quartet Pllush’s (formerly known as Plush) forthcoming debut LP Stranger to the Pain. The guitar-driven track showcases an intense collision between shoegaze, indie and pop. Self-described as “sob rock,” Pllush’s sound is unique; overlaying fuzzy guitars with emotional lyrics creates a gut-wrenching chorus (“Who’s gonna love me more / when I’m crying in the middle of the night? / Maybe I’m feeling torn / because nothing ever comes out right”) with a power that grows with each repetition, until it eventually explodes in a surprising mix of pop harmonies and grungey lead vocals. The full album will be released on June 8 and Pllush will be celebrating the record release that night at Bottom of the Hill. - Lilly Milman





Get Carried Away Fest features emerging NYC bands on a yacht on 08.04

Scheduled for August 4th from 4pm to midnight, the third edition of the Get Carried Away Music Festival this year features ten bands, mostly from the NYC area. On the bill also drinks, food and cool Brooklyn wares, all on board of the historic Timeless yacht during the perfect time of year to enjoy those East River breezes to cool off the hot August nights. The festival features mostly female-fronted groups, which is refreshing and also fair, since women have been producing some of the best indie music in recent times.

There's still room for five more artists which will be selected through a special Battle of the Bands contest taking place on June 2 at Kingsland Bar in Greenpoint, 6pm-midnight. Band/artist submissions can be emailed to kelly.isaacs@getcarriedawaymusic.com.

The festival is now offering discount tickets at $65 each to the first 100 festival goers. Tickets are available here and on the festival website. Check out a playlist of the local bands playing this event, streaming below! - Meghan Rose





No Swoon bring glaring showgaze to Alphaville on 05.24 + plays Northfest

Led by singer/guitarist Tasha Abbott, in their debut single "Still" Brooklyn's No Swoon marries the blazing guitar tones of My Bloody Valentine with softer atmospheres and odd time signatures of more obscure acts of the '90s like The Pale Saints. Notwithstanding its newness, the trio was selected to play the Northside Fest this June. Before then, you'll be able to see them live at Alphaville on 05.24.





Bodega share video for “Jack in Titanic” + play LP release at Sunnyvale on 06.01

It starts with a moment of sincerity, the music gentler and more intimate, if only slightly, than the wry post-punk typical of Bodega: “well no one is as salty as the seven seas except me.” But the moment is fleeting. To each of Ben Hozie’s proclamations of individuality in “Jack in Titanic,” he and the band adds “and Jack in Titanic.”  With two previous singles from debut album Endless Scroll and a reputation for propulsive, artistically minded live shows, Bodega has already shown its strengths to be irony, critique, and repurposing. “Jack in Titanic” uses that to the effect of inverting traditional ideas of masculinity as shown by popular cultural: to be handsome, devoted, a good dancer, a good lover. Meanwhile, the video courses out erotic images of computer mouse and cable through a square frame, televisions and cell phones making due appearance—all a part of the digital, media-driven world Bodega is commenting on, the Endless Scroll. You can watch the video for “Jack in Titanic” below. Endless Scroll is out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture? - don't miss the release party at Sunnyvale on that same night. – Cameron Carr
