Gem and Eye bring their stylish synthpop to Rockwood tonight (04.18)

Since we had a couple of sunny days in April above 70 degrees, we can officially say that the hunt for the breeziest single of summer 2017 has begun! NYC super-young, brother-sister duo Gem & Eye seems a serious contender for the title with their single 'Echo' (video streaming below). The track offers a delicious synthpop take on the sophistipop of the '80s (think Prefab Sprout), and introduces us to the uber smooth, heart conquering vocals of Harley Pace. There's some promise here... You can see Gem & Eye live at Rockwood tonight, April 18th. - Photo by Juliane Leigh Forsyth





New Psychic Teens EP Available for Streaming

Gloomy melodies thrust forward with steel-cutting guitar and deep-tunneling backend, HEX, the new EP from Psychic Teens, immediately perks one's ears. Officially due out this Friday, April 21 via Hex Records, you can now stream the record in its entirety at CLRVYNT. The five-song EP is electrified in a moody, noisy clash between bleak resignation and resilience. Hovering that threshold between despair and aggression, the band keeps moving. They'll be celebrating its arrival at Boot & Saddle on Friday, May 5, with Tiny Vices and Dulls.





Elbows drops genre-bending new track, "Think Twice"

Elbows is a fitting name for producer Max Scheible. The Brooklyn-based artist crafts music that flexes through genres, bending tastes and traditions and creating something that sounds totally fresh.  Scheible, also a multimedia artist, is no stranger to cobbling together influences from different channels and spaces, and his music reflects this by expertly melding together EDM, jazz, and old-school R&B vibes. Keep your eyes peeled — Elbows is slated to release The Courdory EP this coming May, but in the main time you can stream new single “Think Twice” below. - Olivia Sisinni





Monograms unveil singles from EP "Silencer," play Alphaville on 04.19

The latest release from new wave garage outfit, Monograms, is heavy hot mess of distortion, expansive vocals, and tactful, driving percussion. The EP, ironically titled 'Silencer,' has already yielded two tracks. The first, “Sharp Teeth” (streaming) is a number that borders on '90s grunge, while the second, “Ok Promises” offers a sound reminiscent of some post punk bands of the late '80s, with guitar tones that sound like synths, extra percussion and random intervals of noise. Monograms is four-piece that refuses to stick to one sound or genre, pushing their own sonic envelope as a rule. Be sure to catch their next show at Alphaville on Wednesday, April 19th. - Andrew Strader





Jessie Early's Experimental "Wild Honey"

Jessie Early, a Nashville native and singer-songwriter took a different production route than most of her counterparts on her debut EP, Wild Honey. Two years into the project and unsatisfied with the way the songs were turning out, she began collaborating with producer Jeremy Larson to take the tracks in a different direction. What emerged then, was a unique blend of acoustic and ballad heavy singer-songwriter characteristics and 80s style electronic percussion and synth production. Her tender vocals compliment the expansive sonic environment of the instrumentation. “Living On Your Love” is a perfect example of this unique trait. The structure of the song along with the electronic drum fills and bass-heavy frequency proves reminiscent of Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel. With a debut EP as bold and experimental as this, it’s easy to be excited for what’s to come next from Early.
