Holy Mountain Top Removers ascend with "Pagoda Nods to Euphrates"

Finding the words to describe a band I've experienced as many times and in as many states as Holy Mountain Top Removers is difficult, so let's stick with the facts right now. They have a new album coming out May 10 on the excellent Otherness Records. The lead single, Pagoda Nods to Euphrates, is out for you to enjoy right now. Still sticking with the facts: this is a band you need to see live (more than once) at your earliest convenience, or even your earliest inconvenience. Cancel family plans. Drive a little farther than you'd like. Whatever it takes. Each show is its own experience of far-out explorations featuring, seemingly, whatever the band members pulled out of their toyboxes on the way out the door, punctuated by set pieces ranging from Mid-East Morricone surf pieces such as Euphrates to funeral dirges heavier than a freshly-occupied coffin. 

Check out the stream below and keep your eyes peeled for physical releases due later this year. -Austin Phy

Dilly Dally plays Lee's Place on 05.07 + talks about FX on Delicious Audio

Dilly Dally is not a new band in the Toronto scene (they were born in 2009), but it's one of those rare ones that get better with time. 2015 was their year, thanks to their deliciously noisy debut album 'Sore,' a record that aims straight at the hearts of those who can relate to a perfect balance of fuzz, melody and slacking attitude - as well as those who, like us, miss like crazy the early Pixies (in this regard, check out single 'Desire'). To celebrate our upcoming Toronto Stompbox Exhibit, we asked band's songwriter (and lead guitarist) Katie Monks a quick question about pedals, here's what she had to say in our Delicious Audio piece! Oh, and don't miss them live at Lee's Place this Saturday May 7th!



Bellwire charms with quirky singles off upcoming album

“You got your path, oh I got mine” sings Tyler Burwood in Boston’s quartet Bellwire’s new single “Time Out.” The song, a jangly reflection speckled with vibrant guitar chords, bubbling drums, and monotone vocals, is a single off their upcoming album Dog Thoughts, which is set to be released on May 24. The album, if the singles are any indication, ranges from mellow, borderline melancholic ruminations evident in “JAKL” to spastic bouts in “Let It Shine,” (streaming below) another single with energetic guitars sputtering exuberantly into a solo where the chords stretch out and slacken the pace before dying out into feedback. A quirky aural exploration of age and relationships, Dog Thoughts seems to be shaping up to an entertaining listen. Keep tabs on Bellwire’s Facebook page for any upcoming shows and take a listen to their single below.


New Music Video: "Wedding Singer" - Modern Baseball

Below is a new music video for Modern Baseball's track "Wedding Singer," which is the latest single from the group's forthcoming album Holy Ghost. In it, the lovable quartet is the house band inside the brain of the video's protagonist, who is having a shitty day until he hooks up with pink-wigged cutie driving a hearse. Things get a little Twilight Zone-y, but the romance eventually blossoms. Holy Ghost comes out on May 13 via Run For Cover Records, and the band will be doing a special in-store performance at Long in the Tooth on Thursday, May 12.
