Commendable originality from Baltimore's Tired all the Time

Billing themselves as a therapeutic cure to “Tired all the Time” (TATT) syndrome, TATT’s edgeless tracks seem in many ways to mimic the emotionally dulling effects of anti-depressants. There are no snarling guitars, extended drum solos, or soaring Bono vocals on TATT’s new release PLEASE STOP, the stimulation from the music is intentionally blunted. However, beneath the smoothed out “post-pop” is an attempt to tap into deep despair, fitting for a band that aims to, “calm and sooth the existential stress of life”.

All in all, a highly original release from the Baltimore newcomers.

Hazel English Announces Double EP -Just Give In/ Never Going Home

Oakland-based artist, Hazel English is announcing that she will be releasing a double EP. Just Give In / Never Going Home is due May 12th via Polyvinyl and Marathon Artists, and to coincide with the announcement Hazel is sharing a new video for "Fix," the lead single from the double project. The spacey indie pop track receives an appropriately sun-kissed and romantic visual treatment from director Austin Kearns.

Hazel had a hugely successful 2016, which saw her release her debut EP Never Going Home to critical acclaim from publications such as Stereogum, Wonderland, The Line of Best Fit, Noisey, Gorilla vs Bear and DIY as well as BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Annie Mac and Huw Stephens. The limited vinyl run of Never Going Home sold out almost immediately, with its streams eclipsing the 7,000,000 mark and still counting. For her latest release she combined her debut EP with a strong selection of six new tracks.

 The night's going to be one to remember and one not worth missing, so catch this stellar lineup of Maryland's finest rock music at Ottobar, 8pm, 4/1. $10 advance, $12 at the door. -Jonathan Goodwin





PREMIERE: Barra Brown - "Poem No. 8: The Thread (feat. Gregory Uhlmann)"

Conceptually speaking, the basis of Barra Brown's Poem Project is something to pay much attention to. Coming out on Cavity Search next month, Poem Project takes Barra Brown's single "Poem" and sees it interpreted by eight different musicians from across the country. From members of groups like Ages and Ages, The Shins and Radiation City among others, Poem Project's participating artists breathe new life into an already amazing song.

Under a set of specific parameters, each artist was allowed to play with the original structure of the song while providing their own lyrics as part of the transformation. The one of particular focus today is from Los Angeles folk musician Gregory Uhlmann, who produced the softly intimate folk of "Poem No. 8: The Thread." Uhlmann's orchestration has made for a beautifully minimal track, led by rich vocals and slow, warm instrumentation.

Listen to "Poem No. 8: The Thread" below and be on the lookout for Poem Project's release April 7.
