TRACK OF THE WEEK: Girl Gaze “Suddenly”

It’s time to accept this summer's end with the autumn equinox quickly approaching this Sunday. New Paltz five-piece Girl Gaze, formed out of a childhood friendship between Izzy Deranieri and Michaela Passero in Izzy's basement during the winter of 2017, captures the seasons' shift with their first single “Suddenly.” The lengthy piano intro sounds like a [...]

PREMIERE: Moon Honey “Life Has No Meaning”

The plight of the monarch butterfly may not seem like a fitting subject for a song, yet LA's Moon Honey tackles butterflies, climate change, and death itself in their new single "Life Has No Meaning." Don't let it get you down though. Frontwoman Jess Joy uses the flutter of her voice and a kilowatt smile [...]

INTERVIEW: L’Rain, Spellling, and Boy Harsher to Embrace the Experimental at Basilica SoundScape 2018

Just a short ride on Amtrak from Penn Station, Hudson - with its quaint brick buildings, historic architecture, and riverside views - has become an enclave for New York City’s artistic expats. One of its architectural centerpieces rises from the city’s industrial past: Basilica Hudson, a sprawling 1800s foundry reborn in 2010 as a concert [...]

PREMIERE: Billy Moon “Tangerine Dream”

Punk is a loaded word. It's been ascribed to popular artists as diverse as New Found Glory, Green Day, and Patti Smith. Graham Caldwell makes music as Billy Moon that expands beyond the label, gifting listeners with a tonally diverse album made for a record player's full turns. Punk Songs, Caldwell's debut LP, contains traces [...]

When Push Comes to Shove: Etiquette in the Mosh Pit

The live music experience is a major part of music fandom, and anyone who attends concerts regularly can attest that there's an unspoken sense in the air of how to behave and interact with one another at most shows. In venues of any size, hosting any band, of any genre, there is simple etiquette that one [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Code Anchor “Hoist”

Do you remember a time when bands could pack venues with zero social media presence? That was the case for Code Anchor only 8 years ago, who had a significant following in Long Island, NY before their breakup scattered its members across the country. This distance didn’t stop them from rekindling their musical partnership and [...]

BAND OF THE MONTH: Sammus

Among humanity’s more limiting foibles is our perpetual need to categorize, to label, to place things into boxes. I assume this is some leftover remnant of our evolutionary selves, the need to discern who or what is a threat in order to survive. This persistent obsession with labels survives today, less out of the need [...]

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Ecstatic Union “Neurons”

  Neurons are specialized electrically excitable cells that receive, process and transmit nerve impulses. “The neurons that you’re born with are the neurons that you die with,” says the late Terence McKenna sampled in the title track of  Ecstatic Union’s new record. Lyrically, the track explores the intention to fully connect with the energy around [...]

PREMIERE: Cillie Barnes “Mudslides”

Vanessa Long is the woman behind Cillie Barnes, a five-piece "avant-pop" project out of Happy Valley, California. It's her Ojai style, her witchy lyrics, and her shaman (that's right, I said shaman) that make this band feel intrinsically LA. It's an easy aesthetic to dismiss nowadays. Every band north of the 101 carries crystals in their [...]

It’s a catchy and relaxing listen where [...]
