Swoon Lake releases new EP, plays The Glove on 5.25.

Brooklyn's very own Swoon Lake have bred a new strand of indie music: "ghost folk." The band's own description of their music is peculiar yet accurate; there is an aura of mystery about their tracks, the ambient synths and choral harmonies on their newest song "Bloom" seemingly glide right through you. Grounding elements are the lead vocals and certain electric guitar rhythms; there's seldomly a full drum kit to speak of, but sometimes, like a friendly giant, the bump of the kick drum surfaces from below. Swoon Lake's new self-titled EP is out on Friday, catch their release show on 5.25 at The Glove in Brooklyn. - Geena Kloeppel

Q&A with Boston slack rockers Three Run Jack

Three Run Jack is a four piece band from Boston. Its members, Dave, Nick, Brett, and Brad, write fuzzy, sloppy, '90s sounding garage songs with punk overtones that prove remiscent of classics like Pavement and Guided By Voices. Distorted guitars, totally unapologetic talk-sing vocals and distant, washy percussion make for a pleasantly nostalgic strain of lo-fi indie rock that we enjoyed so much we had to (virtually) sit down with the four of them for a chat about the band's past, present, and future - read the Q&A with the band here.





From the digital submissions: Ryan Wu's stripped down sound

There’s more to Ryan Wu than meets the eye (and the ear). With debut EP ‘Wutasia,’ the multi-instrumentalist perfectly encompasses the experience of young adulthood through his stripped down vocals, the twang of his guitar, and plainly honest lyrics (“Changing thoughts can't seem to go away / Not a thing stays the same” - he sings in opener 'Changing,' a track that addresses the shifting friendships and loneliness Ryan experienced during the writing process). The low fidelity of the record gives the project a timeless sound, that blends well with Wu's whimsical vocals, whose tone and melody are at times reminiscent of psychedelic genius Syd Barrett. - Lilly Milman

New OhBree LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

OhBree recently released their new LP Burn Bridges, Burn Pies. The collective of troubadours finds an intriguing balance, as personal narratives meet eccentric ends. Strolling the brass horn-blasting, boarded streets, the band finds a delightful medium between playful melody and frenetic force. You can catch their record release show on Saturday, June 24 at Johnny Brenda’s, where they'll be supported by Grandchildren, Mumblr, and Glenn Matthews.
