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.


Lemon Knife "Thunder Owed"

DIY rock duo Lemon Knife recently released a new single called “Thunder Owed”. This is the work of Mia Blixt-Shehan (Bass, guitar, vocals) and John Retterer-Moore (Drums, lyrics, backing vocals). This is the first new music from the duo since their 2018 EP, “In Our Darkest Sour”.


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.


New Track: "Get Lost" - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans's forthcoming album, If you're not afraid, I'm not afraid, is slated to arrive on August 23 via Topshelf Records. The trio recently shared a new video, co-directed by Miriam Devora & Bob Sweeney, for its lead single, “Get Lost”. It appears to also mark the departure of Nina Scotto from the group. (You can check the debut single, "Time Is Right," from her new project Pouring Silver HERE.) Addressing feelings of isolation and sadness and coming to terms with them through personal strength and acceptance, the band's latest track gathers anthemic momentum. It's an absolutely lovely sampling of what's to come. You can catch Queen of Jeans headlining Boot & Saddle on Friday, September 6.
