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.

Antarctigo Vespucci channel rock's past and present, play MHoW 11.04

The founding myth of Antarctigo Vespucci, a Brooklyn “powerpop violence” duo comprised of Chris Farren (of Fake Problems) and Jeff Rosenstock (of Bomb The Music Industry and solo acclaim) feels like a page taken from an as of yet unwritten sequel to Meet Me In the Bathroom; a chance meeting between two prolific songwriters lead to the creation of a band that best represents the continuation of rock and roll’s rebirth in New York City, fostered both by a classic Springsteen-esque energy and a desire to push beyond the traditional boundaries set on the genre. “White Noise,” the first single from their forthcoming Love in the Time of Email, totes both fuzzed out overdrive and pop-punk styled singability, a track that chugs along with an earworm chorus and scorching guitar in tandem. Farren and Rosenstock clearly have a foot in both camps of rock history, blazing towards a subgenreless future while relying upon quintessential guitar-laden soundscapes, playing to their strengths and influences in a way that feels instantantly classic. - ConnorMcInerney

Love in the Time of Email drops later this month on Polyvinyl Records - you can catch them live on November 4th at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. In the meantime, stream “White Noise” below. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo via the artist's Facebook.




Fade Awaays - New Indie Surf Rock Single "Get Along"

This 4 piece indie-surf band have released a brand new single. Fade Awaays bring the noise with their surfy garage jams and drunken sing along choruses. “Get Along” is just that. A song to listen to while getting day drunk, preferably outdoors. This tune is a taste of what’s to come from these slacker rockers. Fade Awaays will be performing at Supermarket in Kensington Market for Indie Week on November 8th. - Kris Gies


Jigsaw Youth brings a blend of punk and hardcore to Trans-Pecos

In September, NYC’s Jigsaw Youth released Sorry for the Distortion, an EP that follows 2017’s album, America’s Sweethearts. Made up of Natascha Beck (guitar), Julia Mannarino (drums), and Maria Alvarez (bass/vocals), Jigsaw Youth hearken back to the relentless wrath of bands like Bikini Kill and Hole; but their inspirations draw near and far—from FIDLAR to Fugazi. They rip through a lot more than just punk in their songs, navigating hardcore, metal, and grunge influences with dexterity and fury. You can catch the trio play at Trans-Pecos on October 26th, where they’ll be playing with So Over It, Mean Siders, and Bad Kiss! - Sara Nuta
