Psych





The Dead Shakers release eerie "Medfield" video & play O'Brien's Pub (8.29)

Filmed only in available daylight in the abandoned Medfield State Hospital, the “Medfield” video (streaming below) from Burlington psych-rockers The Dead Shakers is as surreal as the track itself. Primary songwriter and frontman Kevin Bloom is seen alone in alternating settings, almost always standing completely still — as if he has become part of his surroundings. It is only during the songs climactic ending that he begins to gain a sort of agency and energy, walking down a path right towards the viewer. The track comes from The Dead Shakers’ debut LP All Circles Vanish, which took Bloom three years to create. It is a hugely collaborative effort, featuring a rotating cast of over a dozen creators. Catch The Dead Shakers playing live in Allston at O’Brien’s Pub on August 29. - Lilly Milman





BIRDS bring their psych rock to Sunnyvale on 10.03

What exactly do BIRDS mean when they title their album Everything All At Once? It could be considered a one-size-fits-all genre tag, a wide net to summarize all their influences without using the nondescript term “indie”. However, we'd rather think of it as a means of describing what they offer on each song; there’s no token emotional song or designated hit single. Instead, the band opt to craft every song with psychedelic breeziness that merges with subtle earnestness in a way that these songs could fit either a summer or winter playlist without feeling out of place. BIRDS’ brand of weirdo psych-pop is reminiscent of what the Elephant 6 collective were doing in the 90’s, but their focus on more subdued songwriting allow for each song to expand in meaning and depth in a naturalistic and enthralling way. You can stream their music below and catch them playing live at Sunnyvale on October 3. –Tucker Pennington

Debut Bodyguard EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Power Animal bandmates Megan Gouda and Matt Hampson further their creative collaboration as Bodyguard. The duo’s debut EP, Allow Yourself The Frame, merges electro-r&b in a crisp, futuristic-leaning manner. Vocals sync in serene unity, and at other points, offset in staggered directions, creating a theatrical dynamic. Ethereal harmonies, which hone in on specific points, are countered by the adventurous, beat-driven leaps, landing in unexplored territory.





New Track: "Big Crime" (Madam Data Remix) - Moor Mother x Mental Jewelry

“Big Crime,” the closing song from Moor Mother x Mental Jewelry's EP Crime Waves, has been remixed by fellow Philly sound sculptor Madam Data. The solemn, foreboding tone is enhanced by the rapid-fire, glitchy noise elements. The clarity of Moor Mother's vocals plays off the electronic shards/threads that fray the edges, adding a sense of uncertainty, as if caught in the moment. You can find Madam Data this Friday, August 17 on an All Mutable showcase at the Tundra Dome that also includes Embarker, Garvin Kelly, and Cleo Miao x Trngs.

Native Sun talk about Pedals on Delicious Audio + play El Cortez on 08.16

Brooklyn Native Sun's fast paced and heavy handed mix of garage and psych rock has earned a space in the soundtrack to our summer 2018 trips. Their recent EP "Songs Born from Love and Hate" features many flavors of fuzzed-out guitars, so we thought it might be interesting to ask the band a few questions about their pedals and  gear - check out the link below, and see them live at NYC's El Cortez on August 16.
