Fovea release debut LP "pencil me in" on 12.8

Four-piece Fovea release their debut LP pencil me in on December 8th under the boutique label Omad. The group - made up of Skidmore grads Steve Shaw, Max Weigel, Jake Denicola, and Halley Furlong-Mitchell - have a sound that they describe as "dancey dream pop", which falls somewhere between Ra Ra Riot and M83. You can hear that sound in motion on "Cost Of", one of the twelve tracks on pencil me in, as well as at their show with Woolly Mammals and Ritual Talk on November 25th at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Check out "Cost Of" below. - Will Sisskind

Weekend Warrior, November 3 - 5

Tonight, Johnny Brenda’s will be hosting melodic punk outfit Worriers. Commemorating its freshly issued album, Survival Pop, which is now available via SideOneDummy, the band captures a reflective, rambunctious, magnetizing current. Developing transferable narratives whose loose, focused build reaches undeniably momentous ends, these songs strike a nerve as one plants oneself in the midst of the storylines, letting the plot play out.  Reevaluating flashbacks with future projections and the in-between (now), Lauren Denitzio and company push forward, producing a consistently adapting perspective that imparts an emotive recognition, reconciling with the causes of conflicts and embracing the points of positivity. Worriers will be supported this evening by the kindred spirit of Thin Lips and the harmonious, open-book powerpop of Katie Ellen. - Michael Colavita

Lillet Blanc brings Dream-Pop to Trans Pecos, 11.03

Lillet Blanc’s music takes a hint from their namesake: both are intoxicatingly sweet, yet refreshing. The band's execution of the dream-pop aesthetic showcases honeyed melodies, boasting Emily Rawlings’ vocals whirling through a backdrop of groovy pop stylings, and cutting through the sonic daydream with beautifully pure high notes. Thankfully, the band's “moody songs with a lil' sass” avoid falling into an excess of saccharine by featuring near-sinister lyrics that give them a unique edge. For a taste of something special, check out Lillet Blanc at Trans-Pecos, tonight (11.03). --Amanda Ogea
