The Marías share video for new single "Cariño," new EP due out in September

Let The Marías seduce you with their latest single, "Cariño." On the video for the track, the indie-pop quintet wanders in a frolicking manner with the same improvisational flair of a classic French New Wave film. The song's smoky, yet alluring arrangements are the perfect soundtrack for velvety leader singer María to put forth her inner yé-yé as she rides a Vespa across a barren paradise. María may sing "Cariño" in her native language (it translates to sweetheart in Spanish), but there's no need for a translator to enjoy the band's limber guitar strums and swooning brass melody.

"Cariño" is the first single off of The Marías' forthcoming EP, Superclean Volume II, which is due out sometime in September. Catch them at the Lodge Room Highland Park on September 29. Juan Rodríguez

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Goodbye Max

Saying “goodbye” can often be a difficult act, and on Goodbye Max’s self-titled debut album (which is available on cassette via Fox Food Records), the Philly singer-songwriter beautifully and elegantly captures those conflicted feels. Unpacking an “old box” of memories, he leaves you drowning in a pool of emotions, before surfacing for that much-needed gasp of life. Goodbye Max’s desire this year is to find other musicians to collaborate with. So take a listen below, check out what this project is about HERE, and get in touch with him ASAP!

The Dead Shakers release eerie "Medfield" video & play O'Brien's Pub (8.29)

Filmed only in available daylight in the abandoned Medfield State Hospital, the “Medfield” video (streaming below) from Burlington psych-rockers The Dead Shakers is as surreal as the track itself. Primary songwriter and frontman Kevin Bloom is seen alone in alternating settings, almost always standing completely still — as if he has become part of his surroundings. It is only during the songs climactic ending that he begins to gain a sort of agency and energy, walking down a path right towards the viewer. The track comes from The Dead Shakers’ debut LP All Circles Vanish, which took Bloom three years to create. It is a hugely collaborative effort, featuring a rotating cast of over a dozen creators. Catch The Dead Shakers playing live in Allston at O’Brien’s Pub on August 29. - Lilly Milman

Half Stack release single "Dually" & announce LP 'Quitting Time'

The enigmatic Oakland five-piece Half Stack have released the first single off of their forthcoming LP Quitting Time. The freak-folk track “Dually” is textured with psychedelic influences that draw out and distort the vocals into a pleasantly unique incarnation of West Coast country. The repetition of the line “Is it real at all?” invites listeners to drift into Half Stack’s dream world, and we are happy to do it. Quitting Time will be released in full on October 19 via Processional Cross. - Lilly Milman 

New Track: "No Surprise" - Trilobytes

Pairing lyrical lines with opposing viewpoints, “No Surprise,” the latest single from Trilobytes, covers multiple angles. Building from a somewhat menacing guitar riff and then marching on, the track’s subject appears to consider the possibilities without locking into a particular path. Sitting in the middle of dueling outlooks, a resignation of optimism appears to win out, but not before a brooding, instrumental foray.
