Fauvely "Deer Song"

Fauvely has released the second single, "Deer Song", from their forthcoming EP "Alligator Rodeo".

This is the project fronted by Sophie Brochu who recently relocated to Savannah, Georgia but was joined by her Chicago-based bandmates Dale Price (lead guitar), Phil Conklin (bass) and Dave Piscotti (drums) along with Ty Thompson and Susanna Kennedy, to record this project.

Brochu joking calls this her break-up song with Chicago, but we just can't let her go.


Rifton "Black​-​Eyed Susans"

Rifton has released his debut EP, "Black-Eyed Susans". The EP includes his two most recent singles "Wasted" and Nightsport".

This is a blend of Dream Pop and Psych Rock, and a collection that Rifton wrote over three years ago. We can't wait to see what he might do next.


Así Así "Nómada"

Así Así recently released the third single, "Nómada", from their forthcoming album, Mal de Otros, which is due out on August 18th.

This is the work of Fernando de Buen (guitar/vocals), Ben Geissel (drums), Celeen Rusk (keyboards), and Sam Coplin (bass).

You can help them celebrate the release of their album on August 18th at The Hideout with The Roof Dogs & Troigo.


Pamphlets hand out latest musical manifesto with "Somehow"

Having witnessed a couple live sets by the Brooklyn-based three-piece Pamphlets recently there’s one word that comes to mind to describe their songs and their stage presence and that word is “urgency” because here’s a band who instill every note and every syllable with an urgent sense of, well, urgency, that makes you feel like somehow you should be doing something about the desperate state of the world, or the desperate state of your soul, or heck maybe they’re just trying to remind you that you left the oven or the iron on at home. But whatever it is, it’s damn urgent and you better take care of that shit right away.

It’s a general vibe that’s very much in keeping with these urgent times, times equivalent to a dumpster fire being doused with a tanker trunk full of gasoline (expensive gasoline!) and Pamphlets are like the “End Is Nigh” street corner guy who thrusts a pamphlet into your hand where “every ounce of passion is calling for a reaction” and here I’m quoting from Pamphlet’s new single “Somehow” which is put across with a Gang of Four (Gang of Three!) level intensity and urgency by vocalist/guitarist Jeremy Marquez, bassist Ben Griffin, and rhythmatist Daniel Pemberton.

And hey I’m not even gonna try to interpret “Somehow”’s lyrics minus any input from the band because that’s beyond my pay grade but safe to say there’s plenty of intriguing lines about redlining and polished politicians and defiling palms and submissive gods and “taking medicine to ease myself from all of your relevance” which come across equally acerbic and anthemic as underlined by the spiky-as-a-porcupine postpunk sonics guaranteed to get your heart pumping even when they slow things down like on “Flowers.” 

So check it all out and then check out Pamphlets live if you're able to cuz they’re really something in a setting where their livewire energy comes across most directly and luckily you've got two chances to do just that in the coming days since the three gents are slated to appear at Bushwick’s Hart Bar on Friday and then out on Rockaway Beach on Saturday as part of the Rock! Away! Summer Fest so get up and boogie down with urgency! (Jason Lee)
