Coral Moons debut with soulful singles, play Gulu-Gulu Cafe 08.23

Let the retro-rock vibes of Coral Moons wash over you for a fresh Monday boost. The band’s soul tendencies give way to intertwining electric guitar riffs that are supplemented by a deep bass groove, snappy drums, and the sharp vocals of singer-songwriter Carly Kraft. Upbeat on the choruses, committed to the breakdowns, and keen on bringing a ‘60s and ‘70s cheer to the modern age, this group is wholly faithful to itself. The band’s debut record Quarter Life Crisis is due out September 12th, with two singles out for it already: “Dive In” and “Fall in Love” (streaming) promise a debut record dripping with rock ‘n’ roll goodness, scented with nu-soul perfume. The band’s next gig is at the much-beloved Gulu-Gulu Cafe in Salem, MA on August 23rd. - Rene Cobar

   

Debut Sleep Tactics Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Dan Smith (Low Dose, ex-Fight Amp), Matt Weber (Young Statues, The Ages), and Josh Taylor creatively combine to form Sleep Tactics. The power trio recently released its self-titled debut album. The precise power of the instrumentation merges with the insightful ebb and the flow of the vocals, creating a dense, dynamic force. The band is all set to hold its record release show at Boot & Saddle on Friday, August 30, supported by Savage Dads and Timelost.

   

Bam! Bam! releases new video for "Literary Hoax"

Oakland's Bam! Bam! just released a video for their song "Literary Hoax" and it is old school style with weird imagery that matches well with their vibe. Energy, slamming guitars and all the glory of post punk and pop punk, these ladies are holding it down. They are playing Bandcamp’s Oakland record store and performance space on Friday, September 13. Check them out. - Lucille Faulkner

   

Blacker Face "Parade"

Blacker Face has released the latest single, “Parade”, from their forthcoming LP, Distinctive Juju, which is due out October 18th via Sooper Records.

For this single, the second from the album, the band shifts their focus towards on the ongoing climate change crisis.

Blacker Face is Jolene Whatevr (vocals), PT Bell (Bass, backing vocals), Isaac Nicholas (Guitar), Noah Jones (Drums), and Louis Clark (Keyboards).

You can catch Blacker Face at East Room on August 17th with Hunx and His Punx. The record release event for their new album will take place on October 18th at The Hideout.
