Sore Thumb brings sunny, surfy rock to Feral on 9.22

To call the Bay Area’s Sore Thumb surf rock would be a restrictive oversimplification. While the beginning half of their debut LP An Album By… is straight-up, 60s inspired, reverb-drenched rock, the record moves on from that pretty quickly. A few of the middle tracks, like “No Right, No Wrong” and “Meltdown,” explore darker undertones and move deeper into the territory of alternative rock. However, like a rubber band snapping back into shape, the sunny, surfy rock that Southern California has grown to love returns in “That’s Why” (streaming below) and remains throughout the end of the track list. This LP is also accompanied by a visual album that is streaming on the band’s YouTube. Currently, the LP is available for free download for anyone who attends a show or connects with the band on Facebook. Catch their next live show at Feral in Oakland on September 22nd. - Lilly Milman 

Overlake opens for The Brian Jonestown Massacre + talks about stompboxes

Overlake specializes in serving up gazey and delicious tracks that showcase strong melody-writing chops. They are playing a high profile show in Philly tomorrow (September 6th), opening for The Brian Jonestown Massacre (New Yorkers will be able to catch them at Gold Sounds on October 4th). Though there’s enough wall-of-sound goodness to sink your teeth into, the band also manages to meld upbeat, indie-inspired choruses that you may find echoing up in the space between your ears all day. Our friends at Delicious Audio asked them to share a little bit about the gear that helps to define their gorgeous noise - check out the Q&A here, and their recent video for 'Unnamed November,' streaming below).  - Olivia Sisinni, Photo: Naomi Scott

The quintet of Rosetta recently released its 6th full-length album. Utopioid hovers in a menacing yet meditative atmosphere, unleashing a decided heaviness that smacks of immediacy, while creating pockets of contemplative space.

Buzz Alert! Maybird opens for Portugal, the Man + lands September residency at The Knit

2017 has been a good year for NYC's melodic psych rockers Maybird: after releasing the "Unraveling" EP back in June, including the single “Keep In Linefeatured by The Deli a few months back, the band was asked in quick succession to play a September residency at the Knitting Factory and to open a couple shows for Portugal, The Man during their upcoming fall tour.
