Video Daughters bring their powerful Noise-Garage to Shea Stadium 8/30

Melodic cacophony is one of those grinding paradoxes that I'm hesitant to even entertain, but it's the most apt description we found when trying to put into words Brooklyn-based band, Video Daughter's music. Throughout their eponymous titled EP, the self-proclaimed "avant-garage" rockers deliver a new-york-punk sensibility engulfed by an inferno of noise. Despite the bludgeoning force that comes out of the album, the band never ceases to forge a strong melodic presence, even when their songs are lead by march-like percussion ("La Petite Mort"), or border on manic ("Nunu"). If you're interested in listening to tunes with a fierce sonic bite, check out the link below and see Video Daughters play Shea Stadium on 8/30 with the Yin Yangs and Rathaus- Olivia Sisinni





Zero Disorder

Hailing from Haverhill, MA, Zero Disorder is the bedroom pop project of Joe Bastian. His album Swim was recorded in his bedroom during the cold months of January through March, and was released in April through Public Alley Records. The release puts Bastian’s songwriting abilities on display with interesting instrumentation and lyricism that wastes no time getting to the point. Similar to lo-fi contemporaries Alex G and Elvis Depressedly, Bastian’s vocals are moody, but remain upbeat when - in his songs - he asks movie stars if they feel lonely or sings about a morning cup of coffee. The tracks are dominated by Joe’s guitar and drumming, but unique background noises make subtle appearances throughout the record, like on “Not Myself”. - John Honan

New Track: "Come True" - Suburban Living

A winding labyrinth of keys/synth twists before being broken threw by the steady percussive punch in the opening of Suburban Living’s new single “Come True”. The song will be featured on their upcoming album Almost Paradise, scheduled for release on October 7 via 6131 Records. “Come True” embraces a multidimensional approach, as the pleasant constant movement is countered by the somewhat secretively delivered vocals, sticking in a personal, pacifying manner. Don't miss Suburban Living on a sweet bill tomorrow night at Kung Fu Necktie with Blood Sound, Surf Rock is Dead, and Monograms! (Photo by Emily Dubin)





The Guests Opening for Chain of Flowers at Boot & Saddle Aug. 23

Tonight, Boot & Saddle hosts a trio of bands that may momentarily cut through the daily grind. The Guests reflect a melodic, seeking sound as synths are crisply infused into casually fun yet precisely executed combinations of clean rolling guitars, smattering percussion and solidifying bass, providing the foundation for the mysteriously galvanizing vocals. That loosening new-wave/darkwave instrumental flexibility couples with a murky, captivating undertow. On this evening, one doubles downs with the hypnotically haunting blue wave of Remote Control, while the UK’s Chain of Flowers entices with their caravan of hazy-heavy shoegaze. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita





New Track: "3 Months And A Week" (Feat. Eskimeaux) - Power Animal

It's been a moment, but we are happy to hear that Power Animal, a.k.a. Keith Hampson, has a rad new single called "3 Months And A Week," which premiered at Stereogum. It features former Philly native Gabrielle Smith, a.k.a Eskimeaux, whom Hampson had a challenging personal yet fruitful musical relationship with. "I think, in general, both of us were much more capable of expressing our feelings in the form of songs than face-to-face, so we would hang out together and then go home and send each other songs. In a way we had an ongoing, passive dialogue that was sometimes romantic and sometimes really hurtful to each other." His latest track also inspired Eskimeaux to write and record the song, "Broken Necks," off her 2015 breakout album O.K. (Double Double Whammy), as a response. "3 Months And A Week" will appear on Power Animal's upcoming album Good Wind Pt. 1, due out hopefully later this year.
