The Happy Fits share new single "Grow Back"

Any fan of Vampire Weekend or The Black Keys will recognize and enjoy the dance-friendly, angular indie pop of The Happy Fits. The trio of Jersey-based youngsters have released their latest single "Grow Back" (streaming), a song that will appear on the band's upcoming debut record Concentrate, out this June. "Grow Back" is a hard-driving track about a character named Mrs. Mae who is trying to escape a lobotomy by using a pair of scissors she snuck into her pocket. Musically, it packs more of a punch dynamics-wise than previous singles "Best Tears" and "Achey Bones", also included in the upcoming LP. A music video for "Grow Back" is on its way, but in the mean time you can catch the band live at The Saint in Asbury Park on May 28th.. - Will Sisskind





Meant to Bend stun with eclectic debut EP 'Minimum Frowny' + play Milk Bar (6.6)

On their debut EP Minimum Frowny, the San Francisco-based trio Meant to Bend make the unpredictable accessible. Each track attests to the band’s impeccable musicianship, making heavy use of key changes, frantic guitar licks, and intricate harmonies. From the wonderfully crunchy punk sensibilities of “With the Slope” to the earnest and emotional “Crystal Intent,” Meant to Bend cram in something for everyone in a span of only four tracks. With this project, Nathan Driver (percussion,) Gaku Kelliher (bass/vox,) and Aamir Mauladad (guitar/vox) have beautifully reimagined post-punk, leaving listeners with just one question: When’s the full-length LP coming out? Stream the full EP below in preparation for their show at Milk Bar on June 6. - Lilly Milman





Deeper "Pavement" Video

Deeper has released a sad and somewhat dark video for their latest single “Pavement”. The track is taken from their self-titled debut LP which is out now via Fire Talk Records.

You can catch Deeper at Shuga Records on June 9th for a 2pm In-Store Performance and on August 3rd at The Hideout with Clearance.





New Track: "Half-Light" (Feat. Kelly Zutrau) (Instupendo Remix) - Rostam

Philly sound sculptor Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson, recently shared a remix of former Vampire Weekend member Rostam’s “Half Light,” the title track off his new album, which is out now via Nonesuch Records. It is featured on EP1, a remix collection of songs from his debut release. While retaining its intimate illumination, additional futuristic warmth enters the fray, bubbling to the surface. The delicate march of keys circles and serves as a further catalyst of motion. That tight, ballad groove transitions into a spacious, shimmering dreamscape that manages to outshine the original.





New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

Emerald is the latest enchanting EP installment from Sandcastle. Warping vocals encircle in a heady simplicity. A timeless minstrel tone meshes with modern twists and turns, creating an imaginative hybrid. Bending genres (even mid-song), the band creates a sound that continuously shifts and resonates.
