Pale Ramon

Indie supergroup Pale Ramon releases self-titled debut LP on 05.24

Fans of Emanuel and the Fear will want to pay attention to frontman Emanuel Avyas's new project Pale Ramon, which Avyas has started with former Monuments and Oceanographer member Kevin Plessner. Their self-titled debut album will drop on May 24th; its latest single, "The Best Has Yet To Come," which we're premiering today, was inspired by a documentary of a Trump rally in Vegas, and told from the perspective of the young filmmaker trying to make sense of the seemingly decisive and hateful rhetoric being thrown around him. Pale Ramon will celebrate the album release on May 29th at Union Pool. - Will Sisskind

   

Pale Ramon, Phase One and Yuli play Revolution Vol. #36 on 02.23

The monthly appointment with The Revolution, the series organized by National Sawdust and featuring emerging local talent, is back this coming Saturday (February 23) with Volume #36

Three artists coming from varied musical backgrounds will grace the venue's stage: Pale Ramon is a brand new duo featuring Emanuel Ayvas of Emanuel and the Fear and Kevin Plessner of Oceanographer / Monuments, artists we covered extensively in this very blog. Their music walks the line between the intense songwriting of Jeff Buckley and the edgy arrangements of post-rock luminaires Tortoise.

Blending Hip Hop with melodic elements, a variety vocal samples and even jazzy bass lines, the latest single by rapper Phase One (entitled Citii Boy) shows a musician interested in taking the genre in new places, with results that sounds effortless and well produced. 

Yuli might only have one track available online (Her, streaming below), but it's a song that may cast a spell on you. Soulful and experimental, this single strikes a perfect balance between intensity, melody and sonic exploration, taking us back to the day trip-hop ruled the world.

Listen to these three artists in the files streaming (the YouTube video has two tracks) and don't miss their live performance at Revolution #36 - tickets are here.
