Where Is My Mind?: Mannequin Pussy

Childhood pals Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul formed Mannequin Pussy during their time in New York City. The group went through multiple configurations before bringing in Kaleen Read to take over drumming duties and solidifying their sound with the addition of Colins Regisford (a.k.a. Bear) on bass. The congruous, musical union inspired the band to return to the studio and record the follow-up to its debut LP Gypsy Pervert. Mannequin Pussy had already been building a reputation in the punk/DIY music community as a must-see on billings, and with the release of 2016’s Romantic, they began to garner deserved national/international critical acclaim, which eventually brought them top honors in The Deli Philly’s annual Best Emerging Artist(s) Poll.

Now, the quartet is all set to embark on their first European tour this weekend, and we had a chance to connect with Dabice before the start of this exciting, momentous occasion to talk about her and the band’s past, present, and future. It was a truly enjoyable exchange with the thoughtful Mannequin Pussy frontwoman, which you can check out HERE.





Talay & Panther Hollow release EPs at ALPHAVILLE on May 31

Time to add two new EPs to your collection of summer jams from the NYC scene: Talay's eponymous release which drops on June 2nd, and Panther Hollow's People Synesthesia, which drops on May 31st. Both groups have kept busy over the past few months performing at venues around the city, and it's all led up to a big record launch show at ALPHAVILLE on Wilson Avenue on May 31st. You won't want to miss Talay's pop-punk energy or Panther Hollow's striking storytelling. Also, head there to catch Massachusetts groups Sleeping Patterns and oldsoul as they pass through on their respective tours. You can stream new tracks from Talay and Panther Hollow -- called "I Hope Your Band Goes Nowhere" and "Jamie" respectively -- below. - Will Sisskind





New Fire in the Radio Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Fire in the Radio explores ominous personal interworkings with their recently released record, New Air. While consistently pushing the instrumental pace, the band lyrically explores themes of loneliness, personal loss, substance abuse, etc. Hitting on meaningful subject matter while maintaining a high-energy level, the songs take anthem-esque qualities of reflective relief. Fire in the Radio will be celebrating the album's arrival this evening at Boot & Saddle, where they'll be supported by Digger and Crossed Keys.





THE SOLE PURSUIT - INDIE PROG ROCK

Here's some prog-indie rock from the 'burbs of Brampton. The Sole Pursuit kick off their album "Flower City After Dark" with an epic instrumental intro on the track "Ashes". The vocals would make it or break it at this point and singer Kyle Dawe comes in with enough intensity to keep this track rolling. Aggressive guitar and interesting arrangements are the key ingredients for the Soul Pursuit. Listen to the album on their bandcamp page. - Kris Gies





What Was Sound is the Perfect Alternative Festival for the Holiday Weekend

Originally, celebrating this year's Memorial Day weekend was highlighted by a much-wanted performance by Frank Ocean at the Sasquatch Music Festival in the Columbia Gorge. But, in true Frank Ocean fashion, fans were faked out as he dropped off one of the headlining slots. In all honesty, heading out to the Gorge is a hassle anyway, especially when the chance of running into Fred Armisen, who's got a set of his own at the fest, is ever increased. Thank goodness the first annual What Was Sound Fest is happening, so much closer to home, with so much less hipster novelty to deal with.

Sub Rosa Curation teamed up with the Portland Mercury, Do503, Next Northwest, XRAY.fm and the Rose City Festival to bring Brooklyn dream rockers DIIV and El Ten Eleven's mellow post-rock with everyone's favorite indie folkers Woods and Fruit Bats down to Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Local support from Bed., the 11 piece funky afrobeat of Jujuba, Small Leaks Sink Ships and the recently added Sunbathe round the lineup out with some good balance in their first year.

Next Northwest and Vortex Music Magazine are hosting a free What Was Sound launch party tonight at White Owl Social Club, featuring a performance from Small Leaks Sink Ships. Come through and get a sneak peek of what will be happening at Waterfront Park on Saturday, and listen to the newest Small Leaks' track "Dancing Devil" below.
