Keep calm with Dropper's garage rock, see them at Rough Trade 1.15

Garage rock four piece Dropper’s debut EP is a sun-drenched, nonchalant release, marching forward at an easygoing pace, bright guitar work and a muted-yet-emotional vocal performances in hand. Even during the release’s most heated moments, such as the shredding breakdowns on “$2 Beer,” Dropper manages to keep their sound centered and energetic, endowing their self-titled effort with an atmosphere that is engaging, never cacophonous. It’s a difficult task to produce guitar-driven rock that spirals outwards as a means of creating a compelling listen, but Dropper are confident keeping things calmly focused; listen to it below, and see the band perform at Rough Trade on January 15th, opening for THICK. —Connor Beckett McInerney

American Actor's debut single proves unique and gritty, plays The Broadway 1.27

New York indie outfit American Actor’s debut singles Chaos Creator / Cold Hands showcases an upstart alternative group with a penchant for gritty, growling rock and graphic (and sometimes salacious) lyricism. The release’s A Side (“Chaos Creator”) flexes frothy vocals and a sliding, siren-esque guitar, culminating in a no-holds-barred chorus with a heavy crunch, before transitioning to a distinctly chiller B-Side (“Cold Hands”), replete with lewd wordage and a self-effacing perspective. Between the band’s reliance on space-filling electric guitars and the forthcoming nature of their central vox, American Actor’s sound falls squarely between the instrumental stylings of alt giants like The National and the tongue-in-cheek lyrics of Alex Cameron, simultaneously bringing their own uniquely grimy songwriting to the forefront while never pulling punches. Listen to them below, and catch the band’s debut performance at The Broadway on January 27th. —Connor Beckett McInerney
