New Track: "Real Name" - Big Nothing

Chris is the forthcoming full-length debut from Big Nothing, and is slated to arrive on May 10 via Salinas Records. The quartet recently shared its lead single “Real Name”. There is a catchy vulnerability in the songs emotive earnestness as a sense of isolation and not being seen for what you really are unfolds. You can catch the band, alongside Cherry and Swanning, at Radiator Hospital’s record release show on Tuesday, May 21 at PhilaMOCA. (Photo by Jared Castaldi)

Pop masters Modern Diet return with entrancing new EP, play Knit on 05.01

NYC pop masters Modern Diet are back with a new EP that serenely lays out a sonic tapestry of colorful compositions that are brushed with indie rock, R&B, and psych-pop influences. Sit Down and Dance is an appropriate title for a record that grooves and entrances at once with waves of flanged guitar chords and synth embellishments that linger regally. There is a poise to the record that shows the band’s ability to mold its music: while the group's 2015 self-titled debut album had a more aggressive approach of alternative rock with a tinge of mellow jazz, this second release expands on the latter and adds some rich harmonies to boot. The band is preparing for a string of shows, and one of the stops will be at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 1st. We have a track from the new EP here for you. - Rene Cobar    

   

Free Range "Want to Know"

Young Americana band Free Range has released their debut single, “Want to Know”. This is the work of Sofia Jensen (guitar & vocals), Ian Hammond (guitar), Thomas Douglas (bass), and Jack McDermott (drums). The group is fronted by Sofia who is credited as the songwriter on this first track, and is clearly someone to watch in the coming years.

   

Bandy "The Challengers"

Bandy recently released their sophomore album, The Challengers, via the Texas label Under The Counter Tapes.

This is the experimental rock of Adam Cohen-Leadholm (guitar, vocals), Ross Howard (drums, vocals) and Paul Parts (bass, vocals). Paul and Ross are former members of the MAMA, with Ross being the primary songwriter on this album.

This album is ’70’s glam mixed traditional garage rock and is a tremendous amount fun.
