Julian Fulton unveils protest song "Howl" + live in Asbury Park on 04.19

Julian Fulton’s new track from his forthcoming EP, 'Battered Receptions,' is an experimental call to arms for the marginalized in the face of an oppressive national administration. His fuzzy take on what might amount to revival rock serves as the perfect vehicle for much needed protest music in 2017. The track's main goal is combatting apathy in the face of seemingly unstoppable forces. Its opening lines beg the question: “What’s the point in fighting when the writing’s already on the wall?”. An assertive answer appears in the chorus: “It’s not a trick, it’s not a script, it’s not TV / It’s your real life, open your eyes, they’re trying to keep you in the streets”. Fulton’s vocal delivery is angry and combative, emulating the reaction he’d like listeners to have. He wants you riled up, he wants you ready to fight, he wants you to care even when it seems like caring is useless. Julian Fulton has three shows in NJ coming up (listed here), the first one of the series will be at Asbury Park Music Foundation on April 19th. - Andrew Strader


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.

Saint Slumber drops new single, plays the Delancey 4/29

On the heels of sharing the stage with Twenty One Pilots and Circa Survive, Saint Slumber probably has a pretty solid idea of what’s cool, so it makes sense they’d write a song about it. Their latest release, “Cool” (from the upcoming " YOUTH//1 EP," out on April 28) starts off with crackling fuzz, background noise and a blitzed out synth before launching itself into a smooth melodic synth lick that later frames the song’s sweeping chorus. It’s an instantly catchy track that melds elements of indie rock with R&B, post-rock and EDM, but packages them all in a radio-ready way. Check out “Cool” streaming below, and catch the band live at the Delancey 4/29. - Olivia Sisinni

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
