Pet Fox previews new record with electric single "Swerving," plays ONCE 07.24

They say the best things come in small packages, that could not be more true for Pet Fox’s new single “Swerving.” The Boston-based trio packs a lot of surprises into the one minute and twenty-three-second song: a somewhat disjointed compilation of acoustic and electric guitar strains are held together by a solid drum rhythm as they rage beside warm vocal harmonies. The summery vibe of the single comes from the group’s tendency to permeate its indie rock with ‘60s pop overtones, but the edge comes from its math-rock understanding. “Swerving” is a preview of the group’s upcoming record Rare Occasion out everywhere July 19th. The band will be playing ONCE in Somerville on July 24th, and we are streaming “Swerving” to keep its sizzle going. - Rene Cobar





New Track: "Bloom" - Heatmap

Thank, the forthcoming EP from Heatmap, was recorded by Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording, and is scheduled to arrive on July 26. As a precursor, its lead single, “Bloom,” is out now. A gritty groove serves as the core to a track that grows, with clean, calculated, guitar lines branching outward. On Saturday, July 27, Ortlieb’s will be hosting Heatmap’s record release show, where the band will be supported by Goldenaire and Desperate Living.

Peaer's "Don't" is effortlessly cool math rock, new record out 9.27

Brooklyn’s Peaer hits their stride on new single “Don’t,” utilizing patent stumbling math rock rhythms alongside major-minor chord modulations to create a track that is as engaging as it is disorienting. Regardless of vocalist/guitarist Peter Katz’s biting, occasionally sardonic lyrics (“why do you treat others like objects? / man, i’d hate to see how you treat objects”), there’s an inherent playfulness to Peaer’s craft, due in large part to the band’s tight instrumental synergy, their ability to interweave guitar, drums, and vox in ways unexpected and impressive. Better yet, Katz’s nonchalant vocal delivery occurring the midst of their well-choreographed performance endows “Don’t” with an effortlessly cool atmosphere. It promises more experimentation on forthcoming LP A Healthy Earth, out August 16th on Tiny Engines; listen below, and catch them at Elsewhere on September 27th. -Connor Beckett McInerney

New Track: "Cursed" - Grayling

“Cursed” is the latest single from Lexi Campion, a.k.a. Grayling, who recently signed with 6131 Records. Drums and bass converge accelerating the track aggressively forward as the vocals enter in a momentary reprieve, but then shift in an uproarious assertive chorus. One becomes invigorated by the fuzz-laced, bass-thumping, tenacious melody.
