Send Medicine lands June residency at The Satellite + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

Inspired by the mind expanding sounds of the '60s, Send Medicine began as the solo project for Toronto based singer/songwriter Julian Hacquebard in the summer of 2012. Now based in Los Angeles and expanded to five members, the band, in last year's debut album "Scary Aquarius Daughter" honed a sound that updates psychedelic folk to the current times. They just landed a prestigious residency at the Satellite for the month of June, starting on the 5th. Check out their latest single 'Translucent' (streaming below).

Noise pop trio Wooing celebrates debut EP on May 10 within Pianos residency

Readers who've been sticking around for a while may remember Rachel Trachtenburg from teen indie band Supercute! (active in the NYC scene around 2013), and then also as the drummer of ironic folk pop band The Prettiots. Rachel, who is also an actress and model, has recently formed her own group, called Wooing, which is about to release its debut EP through a live show at Pianos on May 10th. The show is part of a monthly residency that will see the band perform at the Ludlow venue every Wednesday of the current month, starting tonight (05.03). The three songs available online showcase a trio uncommitted to a particular genre (we hear, intermittently, folk, noise rock, dream pop...), but generally inclined to find any good excuse to get really loud and noisy, as you can hear in streaming track 'Tear World.'

New Music Video: "The Fire" - Madalean Gauze

Madalean Gauze will welcome her latest EP Cool and Fun with a release show at Johnny Brenda’s on Friday, July 21 that will also includes American Trappist and Haunted Homes. Its first single, “The Fire,” finds tumultuous guitar and the compound, rhythmic stomp, creating an eerie, impending sense of danger. Her haunting vocals with creepy keystrokes add to the ominous outlook. Shot at PhilaMOCA, the video by Philly's own Bob Sweeney injects found elements amid dancing footage and nostalgic filters to lock in on that mysterious feeling of the strange.

The Spookfish's surreal space-folk (or something)

We are not sure what led Dan Goldberg of The Spookfish to record his album "Black Hole" in a studio after spending ten years recording his own music in DIY fashion (according to his Bandcamp profile, the man has recorded 10 full lengths between 2010 and 2014!). Whatever the reason, the music of The Spookfish hasn't lost one bit of its lo-fi character and charm, developing on often juxtaposed and sometimes blended elements of dream-folk and 8-bit space rock. Single 'Everything is Moving So Fast,' one of the few tracks with lyrics, perfectly describes the static and surreal mood of the record: "You're standing slowly, watching it pass, everything is moving so fast." Echoes of early Flaming Lips and Sebadoh give this track a '90s flair that is though misleading: the rest of the album is a very personal, mostly instrumental - and often quirky - take on lo-fi.

Debut Harmony Woods LP Available for Streaming
