Bug Seance EP

Bug Seance is releasing their first album March 1st, and for now has 3 songs available to stream on their Bandcamp. Each song speaks volumes of the work and detail the band puts into their music. Their genre-blending style combines shoegaze inspired bridges with more high energy riffs and vocals. At times they sound faintly reminiscent of No Doubt’s earliest work. The jazzy ambient notes function as a smooth, enticing outer layer. It’s an impressive first release.

Bug Seance’s next show is this Thursday, February 21st at No Fun alongside The Strid and Better Humans. You can also catch them at their release show at the Waypost, on March 1st. Spiller and Jazz Boyfriends will also be playing sets.

New Track: "All My Loving" - Ceramic Animal

“All My Loving,” the latest single from Ceramic Animal, is an expansive (almost 10 minute) musical sojourn. Steeped in a nighttime groove, the song hovers between a smooth, weightless, cruising approach and a heavier, psych-blues stomp. Those adventurous escalations continually increase the pressure, until the top appears ready to explode. What results is a locked-in yet wide-reaching trip that precisely pushes the limits. You can catch Ceramic Animal at Johnny Brenda's on Tuesday, March 26, with touring compatriots Spendtime Palace.

   

Debut Yarrow EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A Mild Circus, the debut EP from Philly trio Yarrow, is out now via Get Better Records. A fierce, menacing, post-punk blitz sears into your ears. Tracked and mixed at the Headroom with Kyle Pulley, Mark Watter, and Jackie Milestone, there’s a jarring rumbling that immediately grabs one’s focus. However, that power is refined and utilized creating impactful narratives with rippling societal implications.

   

John War releases madcap, genre-fluid new single "Track #4"

John War creates a beautiful symbiosis of clashing sounds on "Track #4." The multi-instrumentalist's latest defaces any fluid approach to genre conventions, taking a loose indie rock structure and turning it inside out with an odd convergence of styles which include, and are not limited to, reggae, sophisti-pop, and jungle tekno. War - who self-produced Track #4 - adds a surrealist touch to his lyrical imagery, seamlessly forging his madcap vision while retaining a pop slant.

"Track #4" is just a taste of War's inventive approach and should be indicative of what he unveils on his forthcoming Summer release, the tentatively-titled Fantasy. Juan Rodríguez
