New Video: "Whatcha Wanna Do?" (Live) - Residuels

Power trio Residuels shreds a live version of "Whatcha Wanna Do?", off their latest EP Hurricane. Recorded by filmmaker Max Holland, the boys get back to their roots, sounding like a bat out of hell in the basement of West Philly's Pilam. Come join them in "the world's only punk fraternity"!





Shoegaze bill at Mercury on 10.09 with Infinity Girl and Mahogany

Having released their second full length album “Harm” in the summer of 2015, Brooklyn’s Infinity Girl can be found hard at work on their third record. Although no release date has been announced as of yet, the band continue to play select live shows. On Sunday 10/9 they’ll step away from the studio long enough to play a set at the Mercury Lounge, supporting fellow dreamgazers Astrobrite (from Chicago) and ever-evolving headline act Mahogany. While “Harm” shifted away from than their previous noisier work, elements of the C86 jangle pop sound emerged. “Dirty Sun” underscores exactly what was (and still is) so appealing about this timeless sound. A blissful joy is conveyed by the convergence of rapidly strummed guitar over melody driven bass and fast, tom-tom heavy drums. The vocals provide the emotional release through a harmonic beauty evoking feelings of both nostalgia and present day comradery. While waiting for new music to be released, lovers of this should shouldn't miss Sunday's show. - Dave Cromwell





Willie Green drops new album and feathered octopus.

Not since Dabrye’s two/three has a producer collected such a monstrous and diverse group of rappers and pushed them out of their comfort zones and into the further realms of phantasmagoria. In the video for “The Feathered Octopus,” the first of hopefully a whole series from his new Doc Savage EP, Brooklyn producer wunderkind Willie Green provides a polyrhythmic backdrop for two of indie hip hop’s preeminent lyricists to wax intangibles. Like the album, the vid is rife with hip hop cameos. Watch repeatedly, you will be wrestling with more than the language. - BrokeMc





Buzz Alert: Pool Cosby subverts the rules of pop with 'Little Do They Know'

We always enjoy quirky pop songs, but Pool Cosby, a Brooklyn sample-based electronic trio that popped up in our NYC homepage 'NYC New Bands With Buzz' chart, have pulled off something quite rare in single/video 'Little Do They Know:' they married quirkness and emotion. A warm, loungy atmosphere introduces a beautifully delicate melody sung by... a Micky Mouse relative of sorts, singing semi-unintelligible lyrics. As counter-intuitive as that sound, the song is so perfectly produced that we soon found ourselves sincerely captivated by this mysterious creature and his/her emotional depth. The video makes this process even easier, for those enjoying the ladies... and we'll leave it at that. The group is no one hit wonder - their single 'Lookin' Up ft. Valentein" recently charted at #12 on Spotify's United States Viral 50. The band is active live but currently has no shows scheduled.





Allison Crutchfield and the Fizz Step Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits Oct. 1

Allison Crutchfield’s vast musical output has been felt as a part of (the recently reunited) P.S. Eliot and the fierce, gritty, enthusiastic Swearin’ as well as Waxahatchee. Tonight, Crutchfield and her backing band the Fizz step up to the plate at Everybody Hits. Slated to release a yet-to-be-named album - courtesy of Merge Records early next year, she can sit back, allowing the lyrical honesty take the lead among a pensive percussive backdrop or conversely rear back as a heavier fast-paced tenacity rushes forward. Crutchfield and her bandmates will also be joined by the combustible psych-grunge merging of The Spirit of the Beehive and the melodic snarl of pop-punk trio Eight to get the festivities rolling. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
