New Track: "When the Powers Out" - AllegrA

AllegrA recently surprised us with a new song, “When the Powers Out”. Bathed in an intimate,  melodic, beach-surf aesthetic, the single washes over in a relaxed wave of warmth, expressing a sense of support from a distance, amid a disconnect of communication. However, there is a desire to bridge that divide. Compromise can be difficult, and so can watching someone work through things on their own. (Photo by Roxanne Friedman)





New Track: "A 12-Year Audition" - Later Fortune

Heyward Howkins and Chris Madl (a.k.a. Chet DelCampo) have combined forces to form Later Fortune. A quaking bass and an ethereal, foggy synth sketch the setting for their debut single, “A 12-Year Audition”. Howkins's genteel vocals are contrasted by the push of tempo; the fire-crackling invitation of words cuts through the ambient darkness. The textured sonics bridge genres in a comforting manner.





Peel Dream Magazine brings imaginative shoegazer to Secret Project Robot on 12.02

Peel Dream Magazine is the brainchild of NYC-based musician Joe Stevens. His debut album, Modern Meta Physic, has soft fuzzy charm with a mellow, psych core. It’s an exploration of retro sounds and new age-y philosophies wrapped up into 13 hazy tracks. The band's name hearkens back to the legendary BBC DJ John Peel, and its sound is also beholden to the past; part Velvet Underground and part Stereolab, PDM captures the warmth of nostalgia with its samples of old-school late tv programs, while transporting you to an entirely new era through its psych rock and lo-fi musings. In the best shoegazer tradition, Stevens’ airy vocal melodies are often barely audible in the mix, buried under the fuzz of the group's distorted guitars. Listen below, and drift off. You can catch Peel Dream Magazine at Secret Project Robot on 12/2. Sara Nuta

Fat Heaven release "Crybaby" EP, plays secret show on 11.16

Punk rock has taken on a number of forms since it's emergence in the late 70's. While some artists have celebrated its more abrasive aspects, many others embraced the speed and energy while adding melodic elements to it. Brooklyn's Fat Heaven's new two-minute-long single “Crybaby”, with its aggressive and punchy power trio sound, clearly falls within the genre, with the band's penchant for catchy vocal melodies placing them closer to poppier acts like Jimmy Eat World and Green Day. That said, there's certainly enough edge on “Crybaby” to fuel a mosh pit.  The band's lyrics, included on each of the four videos linked to the EP's tracks, indicate thought behind the rhymes. “Suburban Nightmare” doubles-down on that approach with a high-powered lament on the working life. “Never Needed You” provides the perfect break-up song for those who've been in (and then out of) a relationship. Final cut “Fashionista” adds a 50's feel to the progression while calling out style appropriation when it's merely a pose. The band is promoting a live show on 11/16 at a “secret location” (DM them for address). - Dave Cromwell
