Bam! Bam! releases new video for "Literary Hoax"

Oakland's Bam! Bam! just released a video for their song "Literary Hoax" and it is old school style with weird imagery that matches well with their vibe. Energy, slamming guitars and all the glory of post punk and pop punk, these ladies are holding it down. They are playing Bandcamp’s Oakland record store and performance space on Friday, September 13. Check them out. - Lucille Faulkner

Weekend Warrior - August 16 - 18

Sussing, the debut EP from Weekend Athlete, is a multifaceted, captivating release. Earnest, unfiltered songwriting draws the listener to an intimate, vulnerable distance. A mercurial, instrumental atmosphere aids in developing a sense of tense friction. Pensive, penetrating lyrics and rough-around-the-edges guitar and drums combine to create a haunting heaviness that resonates on a personal level. This Saturday at Boot & Saddle, Weekend Athlete lays the foundation for Aster More’s final performance, which also serves as the record release show for their new album Dog-Eared. The affecting, absorbing narratives of Gladie will also bridge the gap. – Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "The Truth" - Riverby

Featured on their EP The Guide to Oversharing, an adorable, new video for “The Truth” by Riverby has emerged. Directed by Bob Sweeney, the footage captures its cast of characters, adorned in ears and antlers, enjoying drinks at a bar and later battling it out with water guns. The narrative of a relationship reaching its conclusion, because one side falls out of love, while the other tries to hold on, aches while retaining an optimistic outlook. Riverby will be part of a lineup that also includes Camp Candle and Bridal Party on Wednesday, October 2 at The Pharmacy.

Hoax's New Single, "Unamerican Dream"

Long Island natives Hoax, has released their latest single, “Unamerican Dream,” an immigrant's vision of America in indie pop fashion. Michael Raj and Frantz Caesar are both first-generation immigrants and chose to centered the single's focus around an immigrant father who, at the end of his life, comes to terms with his shortcomings. Michael and Frantz wanted to pay tribute to the topic by donating 50% of the proceeds to KIND, an organization that aims to help immigrant children find safety and protection in the States.

The song's soundscape, filled with clean lead synths, guitars, and a tidy beat, blends seamlessly with lead singer Michael Raj’s emphatic vocals, and is in part reminiscent of the so-called sophisti-pop of the late '80s that saw its peak in bands like Prefab Sprout and and The Style Council, among others. Since releasing their first EP, The Truth and Other Lies in 2017, Hoax has been unloading previews of their musical talent at a promising rate. Check out the new single, streaming below! - Susan Moon
