Visual Vices: Brown Calculus - "Self Care"

 Back in June, we shared one of the first recordings of "Self Care" by Brown Calculus. They had just hit our radar and thankfully so, because they haven't left it since. Last month they released a lovingly and beautifully shot video for the track and tonight, they're marking another moment; the drop of a new EP titled Live at the Map Room.

Live at the Map Room will actually be played by Brown Calculus live at Mississippi Pizza right around now, following a set from Just Pretend. It's going to be packed, so consider peeping the video for "Self Care" below. It's the opposite of disappointment. 

The DropUps - Junction City EP Release Party Friday!

Toronto based band The DropUps have quite an eclectic mix of influences. Their sound has been described as “Joe Strummer, Tom Waits and Manu Chao walk into a bar and request the Specials on the jukebox as Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello dances up a storm.” They have recorded a 3 song EP at Trouble Town Records Studio which is due for release on November 17th. Their release party is the same day at Junction City Music Hall. Listen to “Pingai” and get a feel for what’s in store for November 17th from the Drop Ups. – Kris Gies

Flat 5 - Debut Album Release Party this Friday

 Flat 5 are a "funkified collective" hailing from Hamilton. This 5 piece jam band features a tight rhythm section, excellent guitar and keyboard playing and some horns over the top to add a nice funky taste to this jam soup. They blend a variety of influences in to their tunes including blues, funk, jazz and hip hop. They have been jamming all over the province this year and are now ready to release their debut album. Friday November 17th is the release party at This Ain't Hollywood in Hamilton along with the Altobeelays. Listen to "Toothpaste"; a sneak preview from their upcoming album. - Kris Gies


Resonant Frequency Are the Funk Lords That Austin Needs

 Having met at show where they were all performing as solo acts, Resonant Frequency has an aura of destiny about them. The trio of comprehensively talented musicians seem to defy a singular genre, and instead they choose to emit a myriad of styles, influences, and vibes. The overarching hypothesis of Resonant Frequency is to get down and have a good time - which they seem to do in spades, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. In the last few months, the trio has played Euphoria Fest, Float Fest, and opened for Pretty Lights - a run that is enviable by any local Austin band and evidences their mass appeal to crowds. Their third studio EP, Honey Dippin', is a funk-laden oddysey that is as entrancing as it is explorative. The true value in Resonant Frequency is found in their live show of which their next show will be November 19, at Empire Control Room's 4 Year Funkiversary.


Basic Printer Releases "Good Weird" Featuring Del Florida to Help Stop Human Trafficking

Basic Printer  and Del Florida have brought us anything but 'basic' music.  With this latest release titled "Good Weird," we get funky melodies mixed with electronic beats and jazzy harmonies.  It's REALLY good...in a weird way!  Changing the world with this track, Basic Printer is donating $1 per Facebook share of their latest video to a charity called "Free For Life International" - a non-profit that saves victims from human trafficking.  I love to support a band with an awesome agenda, and this is one I can get behind!  While this is a band who has a truly unique sound, they've been influenced by Tobacco, Radiohead, and Elephant 6 Artists.  So go share their video to break Basic Printer's bank!  - Christine Harazim
