New The Stammer LP Available for Streaming & Download

Face In Peril, the new album from post-punk four-piece The Stammer, is out today. Capturing the melancholy of relationships gone awry and the subsequent fall out, a looming emotive friction melodically pushes forward as shards of guitar are cast. The LP feels extremely personal as the ongoing existential search unravels in real time, casting a calm but penetrating sense of uncertainty. Ortlieb’s will be hosting the band’s record release show this Saturday, August 11, supported by Summer Scouts, Last Full Measure, and Parrot Dream.

VHS Collection ends summer tour + releases high-energy single "Fire"

The New York trio VHS Collection’s newest single “Fire” (streaming below) captures all the best aspects of alternative rock, pop, and electronic music, combining catchiness and rich soundscape, thanks to the production of Chris Zane (who has previously worked with Passion Pit and many others top notch indie artists). The track, comparable to high energy summer hits from acts like Bastille, shows the undeniable chemistry of the three longtime friends. VHS Collection just finished off a summer tour, and is gearing up to release a full-length record in the coming months. - Lilly Milman

Tempers open for Frankie Rose at Babys All Right 08.12

If there's anything more fitting to a late summer night in New York than some dark synth-pop, I'd like to hear it. Atmospheric duo Tempers' recent release Fundamental Fantasy is a suspenseful, yet shimmering LP that evokes that psychological world of obscure possibilities inspired by city like New York on a Friday night, when nothing seems forbidden. The band's sound, a meeting of the moodiest Depeche Mode with both The XX and Beach House, is like a faded memory you shouldn't have forgotten about. Stop whatever you are doing and let it transport you. Tempers will celebrate the end of their Euro-Mexico tour this Saturday, August 12th at Baby's All Right, opening at Frankie Rose's record release show. - Allie Miller  

Celeste Krishna's 'Prelude Red' is a foot-tapping, body pulsing breakthrough record

"Call up the devil / tell him I'm ready to make deal / meet me in downtown New York / I wanna be young again," proclaims Celeste Krishna on "Call up the Devil." The Brooklyn based artist has forged a intriguing atmospheric avant-indie-dance sound on her new album Prelude Red, that's more sincere than anything else you might want to tap your feet and sway along to. But that doesn't mean the music isn't grounded- there are various field-recordings inserted at the end of each track, of personal conversations and the typical New York subway "stand clear of the closing doors please!" semi-robotic warning. Krishna is also releasing a digital record player for the album in November- "When you go to the player site, the starting point of the album will be random but it will retain its sequence - this way there isn't a particular beginning or end to the album." -Geena Kloeppel

Get Serenaded by Eyes of Love's bedroom folk-rock at The Glove on 08.09

From the beloved Greenpoint label that's already crowded with talented groups like Macula DogPalbertaThe Sediment Club, and Honey, comes Eyes of Love. The brainchild behind this solo, bedroom folk-rock project is NYC-based, LA-born musician Andrea Schiavelli, ex occasional member of now disbanded Nude Beach and ex-member of Punks on Mars. Andrea has been making music under that somewhat misleading moniker since 2011. His latest self-titled EP features simple song with witty lyrics, plenty of charm, and a rather casual performing attitude that screams "lo-fi!". Hopeful lyrics, rippling keyboard melodies, strolling bass lines and major key guitar parts (like in "If We Could Be Fools") showcase west coast influences that make this record more optimistic than his previous works. Songs like "I Know Everything" (although Lou Reed-esque to a fault) and opening track "Love Possession" (streaming) can restore your faith in the future of this guy's microcosm, during the oppressive middle ages of politics affecting our macrocosm. Andrea also has a  forthcoming split record with Lily Konigsberg, coming out later this month. Don't miss his live performance at NYC's The Glove tomorrow (08.09) - Allie Miller
