Blues Lawyer releases instant classic debut LP 'Guess Work'

Every time I’m convinced there’s no more good punk left, an act like Oakland’s Blues Lawyer pops up to remind me I couldn’t be more wrong. Their debut LP Guess Work is a stunning exercise in brevity, filled with tongue-in-cheek lo-fi tracks that hark right back to the ‘70s. None of the members are interested in attempting to impress you (or waste any of your time) with overwrought guitar solos or steep buildups. They’re only interested in making instant classics, and they do so in two minutes or less. They said it best themselves on the punk puppy love anthem “Waste” (streaming below), where the chorus declares “I don’t want to waste time / I want to waste with you.” Well, we want to waste with you, too. - Lilly Milman 





Satellite Mode release dreamy single "Terrified"

Satellite Mode return with a brand new single, "Terrified", the follow-up to their previous release "Gave It All". Where the year's earlier release hollowed out hearts with its thundering sound, "Terrified" -- although about the love of fear -- turns more major-key pop and highlights Jessica Carvo's melodic talent and Alex Marko's ear for catchy chord progressions. This marks the fourth single released this year alone, which gives fans hope that a new release following 2017's Wild Excuses is on the way. The band hasn't made any big announcements yet, however, they've spent the year bouncing from coast to coast, releasing videos and singles, and getting their music on Sirius AltNation - among other radio stations. But 2018 isn't over yet, so there may be more from Satellite Mode still to come. Listen to "Terrified" below. - Will Sisskind





New Video: "Sickness" (Live) - Lovelorn

Live footage of Lovelorn’s recent set from June 30, 2018 at Johnny Brenda’s has emerged. The video of “Sickness” captures the murky, smoke-laced haze that surrounds the trio. Akin to acts like The Kills, its suspenseful, buzzsaw guitar and percussive backdrop oozes ominous adrenaline, while giving you something to dance to in the dark corners of the mind. You can find the ex-Creepoid members performing next in Philly on Wednesday, August 1 at the Electric Factory, opening for Glassjaw and Quicksand, along with Primitive Weapons.





Producer Garren Sean drops spectacular SUNDRIP EP & kicks off tour with Clairo

If you’re a big Chance the Rapper fan, then it’s time to take a step back and thank Garren Sean — the Bay Area producer who worked on “Smoke Break” as well as Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: Re-Wrapped. Where Sean really flourishes, though, is on his newest EP SUNDRIP. The eclectic project blends psychedelic (and occasionally grungey) sensibilities with catchy and modern electronica, creating something entirely fresh. Sean is at his best on tracks like “Psychedelic Soul” (streaming below), which give him the space to experiment with genre. The track is not only dance-friendly, but it’s a modern take on a groovy classic sound and shows a producer who is ready to take on the challenge of creating something completely new. Garren Sean is currently on tour with Clairo and will be back in San Francisco on August 16 for a hometown show at Brick & Mortar. - Lilly Milman





Gia Margaret "Smoke"

The second single, “Smoke”, from Gia Margaret’s forthcoming LP, There’s Always A Glimmer, was released today. This is a stunningly beautiful piano ballad that perfectly showcases softness and grace in Margaret’s voices. This track almost reaches the ethereal sound of a Juliana Barwick, and shows exactly why this album need’s to be owned when it released on July 27th.

You can help Gia Margaret celebrate the release of her debut album at Hideout on July 26th with Brendan Losch and Advance Base.
