People Like You ready release of sophomore album

Buzzwords like "fresh" and "innovative" get thrown around all the time in music journalism. They are pretty cool sounding afterall. Rarely, though, does an artist and their music justify the usage or embody the spirits of those words. Boston's People Like You do.  The indie outfit's debut LP from two years ago flew under our radar, but now's the perfect time to discuss it since they are working on its follow-up and playing a ton of live shows. At the core of their sound is the contrast between the band's cerebral instrumental arrangements and the visceral vocals.  Each of their songs is a swirling mix of instruments and styles from classical glockenspiels,  jazz horns and persussion to indie-rock guitars. The isnstrumental parts are intriguing, inventive and could probably function as post-rock songs just by themselves. That would, however, take away singer Chris Lee's emo and spoken-word styled vocals, and that would suck. Lee's at times laconic, others verbose, but always emotional vocals crash head-first into the band's instrumental arrangemtns to create a sound that excites emotions and provokes introspective thought. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Oaktown Indie Mayhem Releases TV Heads Debut EP - Total Fvcker

The Oakland based record label, Oaktown Indie Mayhem has released the new EP from the experimental band, TV Heads.

After soaking up the creative influences of the Bay Area for many years previous, and marinating in Los Angeles’ vibrant scene of grungy post-punk and garage rock, ambient electronic experimentation, and cross-pollinating performance art mediums, TV Heads was ripe to begin recording Total Fvcker. The band finds it's sound in the collective experiences of the trio; arching guitar lines, gritty synths, and raw drums and bass. Galloway and Tavella mix their distinctive voices together to create lush vocal harmonies that launch into wild choruses, a'la a Jeff Buckley and Annie Clark fronted Smashing Pumpkins.
