Avant





Weekend Warrior, July 29 - 31

Mary Lattimore is coming to The Foundry tonight for a dazzling spectacle of evocative avant-harp plucking. Lattimore is the new anomalous harpist that has been embraced by the wider indie music community, collaborating with artists such as Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Arcade Fire, and many more. Her whimsical music is largely improvised, and attempts to capture a certain mood, image, or theme in its wandering melodies. On tour with Lattimore is Quilt, the psych-pop crew that everybody loves for their pitch-perfect, effortlessly agreeable, upper-crust indie rock. Their sound is primarily rooted in Beatles worship, but there is also a resemblance to more contemporary indie bands like Tame Impala or Of Montreal. The Foundry, 29 E. Allen St., 9pm, $13, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

From the submissions: ZILLA to bring fresh, contemporary soul to Middle East (tonight!) 7/28

Sometimes when a band gets experimental, the result has the unfortunate tendency to be too much like a lab experiment. The music is usually definitely still avant and interesting but stuck with feeling of being manufactured, rather than organic. None of this, however, applies to soul outfit Zilla. The Boston group's latest EP Dream State sounds like a home-cooked meal tastes, with songs seemingly proportioned by what feels right rather than what any cookbook has to say. There's also a distinctly vintage quality to the project, especially in rhythm section and vocals, but it never feels derivative due to Zilla's ability to repurpose them in inventive arrangements and mathy tempos. For a fresh take on soul, check out the EP below, and if you still need plans for this evening you can see Zilla live tonight, 7/28, at Middle East.

We found out about Zilla through our submissions page. If you're an emerging artist and want to get checked out, you can submit some fresh tunes to us here.

From the NYC submissions: Sheen Marina's bizarre surf rock

Alternating between swirling, lawless sea swells of sound and spacey-lounge jazz, Brooklyn-based band Sheen Marina is as unpredictable as a rogue wave. Sounding every bit Mars Volta as lo-fi sunshine-y surf rock, the band's chill-beach tendencies are punctuated by a looming chaotic (and math-y at once) madness that threatens to take charge at any given moment. Despite this, the band comes off as tight, raw and endlessly interesting - leaving the listener picking up new song elements with every pass. Sheen Marina's sound was made for summer (with a twist), so check out their recently dropped single, a rather irrecognizable cover of "Gettin' Hungry" by the Beach Boys, and their first EP, Coda Arms, here. - Olivia Sisinni 

This artist submitted music for coverage here.





New Track: "Georgia+Mass" - Moor Mother

Here is a new expansive track from experimental artist Moor Mother (formerly Moor Mother Goddess), a.k.a. Camae Ayewa, called "Georgia+Mass". It features samples from the Georgia Mass Choir's "Come in the Room," along with Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. Ayewa shared that the composition is about “investigating alternative methods of healing.” You will be able to find it on Moor Mother's upcoming debut full-length album, Fetish Bones, due out in September via Don Giovanni Records, and she'll be performing live this Sunday, July 31 on a bus touring through Philly as part of the Double Decker Music Series.





Everyone is Dirty Releases New Album - Banana Split

Everyone Is Dirty will be releasing a new piece of music entitled, Banana Split.

Banana Split is a schizophrenic cassette single featuring two brand new tracks of art/rock insanity—the title track un-winds like a fever dream with its warped sound waves and amphetamine crunch, re-calling the Slits as much as David Bowie or Talking Heads; meanwhile on the flip side, “Wax Mannequin Mode” wafts in like a ghostly breeze, a rare glimpse of the softer side of Everyone Is Dirty, evoking The Meat Puppets and Elliott Smith.

Everyone Is Dirty first started shocking audiences with the raw power of their music in 2013, quickly striking a nerve with their explosive sound and electrifying live show. They developed a powerful and singular chemistry virtually overnight—the combination of frontwoman Sivan Lioncub’s electric-violin sorcery and sometimes ethereal, sometimes ferocious vocals; Chris Daddio’s pawn shop guitar crunch; the driving post-punk bass lines of Tyler English; and Tony Sales’ expressive and explosive drumming coalesced in-to a force of nature.
