Pretty - New Groovy Surf/Garage Record "Plastic Music for Plastic People"

Pretty is a groovy psych four piece band from Toronto. They blend all kinds of surf and garage influences into their keyboard laden psychadelia. Their latest record “Plastic Music for Plastic People” was released last month and kicks off with a catchy tune called “By The Beach”. This tune is more fun that actually being at the beach. The vocals are drenched in reverb and the extra percussion adds a nice element too. “Plastic Music for Plastic People” available now on bandcamp and everywhere else. – Kris Gies

New Sleepmonster LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sleepymonster, a.k.a. Shane Luckenbaugh (American Trappist, ex-River City Extension), recently shared his new LP You're in the Family. Co-produced with fellow bandmate Joe Michelini at Berlin Studios, there’s a sticky strangeness to the songwriting - one which locks into the snap of the groove and takes on a pop-psych bend. Balancing that heady environment with a bit of carefree, garage-rock swagger, the record potentially could be the soundtrack to your dreams, or maybe more like your nightmares. 'Tis the season.

New Steady Hands LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Truth In Comedy, the new LP from Steady Hands (featuring Modern Baseball's Sean Huber), is out now via Lame-O Records. Produced by Brian McTear at Miner Street Recordings, the record navigates through ongoing trials and tribulations with an earnest exuberance. Finding a knack for creating an opening-book setting and building upon precisely assembled melodies into euphoric releases, these songs thread that personal-universal line. Riding steadily nuanced progressions, the band finds ways to embrace the moments, and still tear it up. (Photo by Chelsea Christer)

Rising NYC indie rock artist Parlors play Nublu on 11.30

Debut single “State Lines” recently brought NYC indie rock band Parlors under our radar; smooth yet gritty, packed with overdriven guitar riffs, and driven by Matt Fullam’s steady and raspy vocals, the track offers an inventive sound that's polished with just enough of a bite. The tempo ebbs and flows along with mild instrumental build-ups, while remaining laced within a catchier songwriting flair. The group is recently formed but has already landed a show at uber-cool Lower East Side venue Nublu, scheduled for 11.30, during which they will release their debut 3-song EP. - Rebecca Carrols
