New Track: "Missing Parts" (Jeff Pianki Cover) - Seagulls

Seagulls recently issued a compilation of acoustic cuts and covers, Answering Machine: Acoustic and Undercover. You'll find a cover of Jeff Pianki's “Missing Parts” kicking off the collection.

New Madalean Gauze EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Madalean Gauze recently released a new six-song EP Cool and Fun. An impending danger looms as the musical engine continues to rev and the swirl of peripheral vocals hauntingly shakes the foundation. Finding the sweet spot betwixt bright moments of mountaintop clarity and grittier, in-the-woods, unbending ferocity, the album is assertively aggressive and focused. Head out to Johnny Brenda’s on Friday, July 21 for a record release celebration that will also feature Haunted Homes and American Trappist! (Photo by Bob Sweeney)

Drop the Gun shares vivid music video "All I Want," plays Baby's All Right on 09.21

Danish multi-instrumentalist and producer extraordinaire Sara Savery aka Drop the Gun has shared the music video for a single from her debut, self-titled EP. "All I Want" is boldly colored, eye-catching, and startling. Featuring cutaways of a superimposed face on Savery's hands, lyrics flashing in front of clips and kaleidoscopic visual effects, the music video highlights the pop-electronic production of the song. The video taps into the depth behind the lyrics in a harsher, more pronounced light, getting to the root of the confusion the Savery aimed to portray in the song. "All I Want" displays inner turmoil on the screen, quite literally. Don't miss her live performance at Baby's All Right on September 21st. - Geena Kloeppel

Lo-fi, slacker rock outfit TWEN plays The East Room 07.19

Recently relocated from Boston to Nashville, six-piece TWEN creates music that is an effortlessly cool blend of garage, psych, and slacker rock. On their live, self-titled album, Jane Fitzsimmons’ surfy voice drones over thrashing guitars, giving the effect of a punchier version of Best Coast. Her shoegaze-inspired vocals are what add the psychedelic twist to the grungy arrangements in songs like “Long Time” (streaming below) where reverb takes centerstage. Their sound is so defined in this EP that it’s difficult to believe it was recorded live—but they will be bringing their exceptional live show to The East Room on July 19th. - Lilly Milman
