There's nowhere to hide in People Like You's haunted "Sounds of the House" video

New Hampshire's favorite freak-folkers People Like You are back and spookier than ever in their newest single "Sounds of the House" (streaming below) which comes complete with a video filmed at Haunted Overload in Lee, N.H. It's a shame that Halloween music isn't a bigger genre, but People Like You are doing what they do best by moving forward into unexplored (and perhaps even haunted) territories. The kitschy clip places the band in the center of a ghoulish wonderland, populated by creepy baby dolls, masked performers, and monsters knocking on closet doors. Turn off the lights and take a look for yourself. Oh, and don't look under the bed -- you never know who or what may be lurking. Get into the Halloween spirit with People Like You tomorrow (10.26) at Charlie O's World Famous Halloween Bash, or Saturday (10.27) at The Stone Church. - Lilly Milman

New London Fire invoke the American Folk Tradition on Tired of This Man

New London Fire’s forthcoming record Tired of This Man may at first seem rooted within the zeitgeist of contemporary indie folk, but a closer listening reveals the group’s spiritual connection to the more overtly political Americana of the early 20th Century. “I hope people feel the same kind of kinship with [our] music that they once did with Phil Ochs or Woody Guthrie,” remarks band leader David Debiak (of Sleep Station and Electric Century). “We want to remind people of the importance of unions, of sticking together in protest.”

This connection is most apparent on tracks like “Now I’m Found,” in which Debiak sings about “gazing upon green and sprawling mountains” with nods to Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.” In doing so, Tired of This Man seeks to revive a grounded sense of Americanism, one not bolstered by blind exceptionalism but instead a celebration of America as a sum of its many different and diverse parts, often employing Debiak's own experiences as testament - contextualized in our current political climate, New London Fire offers a sharp rebuke while invoking the peace loving nature of the American folk tradition.

Tired of This Man will be out October 26th via The Preservation Society. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

A Deli Premiere: Adeline Hotel shares new album "Away Together" + plays release show @ Union Pool on 10.26

Sometimes the inadvertent paradox of grandiose music is that the bigger it sounds, the less personal it can feel. The archetype of one artist and their guitar making music that everyone can relate to often only applies to sounds that are stripped down. Yet on Dan Knishkowy's new album as Adeline Hotel, titled Away Together, this pitfall is circumvented. The warm and bare-bones guitar playing is felt immediately on the opener "So Long", but when it builds to a transcendent apex, the same crisp, emotional pointedness can be felt. The album features guitars that paint a hazy picture and pianos that bring back lucidity as Knishkowy's lyrics push through the gossamer of life: relationships and time passing by as reality blurs. Away Together is a record that furtively slips into your own memories, demolishing the barrier between listener and artist. While songs like "Lightning" and "Plastic Stars" bring a brash urgency to the record, it's the eponymous coda that cements how versatile Knishkowy can be in creating personal music. Adeline Hotel will be playing a release show at Union Pool this Friday, Oct. 26, but you can stream the album in full below. -Tucker Pennington
