New Wives Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Whyvs is the latest album from the punk quartet of Wives. A rowdy, raw, grunge element comes right at your ears. Menacing rhythms and jagged, distorted guitar set the tone. The primal of the vocals accompanies the jarring dynamic of instrumentation. Oozing with heaviness and intensity, the collection is a heart-racing release.





New Track: "Stag" - Goat Mumbles

Rob Grote (of The Districts) recently shared a new single under the moniker of Goat Mumbles. “Stag” occupies a shadowy, synthwave spectrum. A progressive, percussive groove shimmers in the moonlight, creating a mysterious, lonely dance track. The song seems to be invitation to a prospective companion, as Grote’s vocals suggest a hypothetical future. The longing, semi-spoken deliver is contrasted by the warmth and brightness of his falsetto, introducing a different perspective of the artist's musical talents. (Photo by Out Of Town Films)





SASAMI releases lovable video for latest single, "Not the Time," plays The Echo on 1/4

SASAMI brings genuine likability and charisma on her latest video for "Not the Time." Shot in 16mm throughout different pockets of Pasadena and Highland Park, the rising singer-songwriter cruises around with a french horn on her side as she makes friends with a colorful cast of characters. The direction she takes from a visual standpoint adds a welcome levity to the otherwise heartrending track, where she calls defeat to a thorny relationship over some lush, shoegaze-informed clusters of guitar distortion.

"Not the Time" was featured on her recently-released 7'' split single, Not the Time / Callous. Catch her perform at The Echo before the hype catches up on her January on 4 at The Echo. Juan Rodríguez





Bay Faction celebrates release of debut LP at Elsewhere on 12.21

If you are stuck with the notion that emo has become the unbearably whiny expression of spoiled suburban kids, enter Boston's Bay Faction (who recently relocated to the NYC area) and  think again. Their 2015 three-track debut EP clearly carries the genre's DNA, but slows down its BPM by a lot, makes a discreet if not spare use of distorted guitars, and puts a lot of sincere heart in it. Those early tracks resonated with a lot of kids and gathered over a million plays on Spotify, and so did following single Pendulum, dropped in 2017. After a dragged out recording process, the band is now ready to release their debut LP Florida Guilt, a record that expands the group's sonic palette with a more varied production, without betraying the core qualities of their music. The first single It's Perfect, streaming below, is to date their fastest and most driven track, but still stylistically hybrid, with the inwardly tortured voice of singer James McDermott adding oozes of character to vague lyrics related to the struggles of dating. The record is already available on Spotify, and fans of Pingrove and Forth Wanderers (two other bands that are taking emo in new directions) should definitely check it out.

Queue bring dreamy indie rock to Mercury Lounge 01.03

Earlier this year, Queue released “Float Away,” a single that accurately sums up the band both in sound and name. The melody seems to glimmer through a mist with reverberant guitar echoing alongside airy vocal harmonies. “Float Away” was the first track the band released after finding a united home in New York, members previously spread out across Philadelphia and D.C. It’s safe to expect a fair bit more from Queue in 2019 with the group currently spending time recording at Brooklyn’s Degraw Studios. But you can catch the band early in the year opening for CUTTS at Mercury Lounge on January 3. – Cameron Carr
