Lola Kirke announces new LP, releases video, lands Union Pool residency

Actress and singer-songwriter Lola Kirke dropped a double-whammy of news over the past week; she released the music video for her latest single "Supposed To" on Thursday, and announced that her first full-length album "Heart Head West" will see the light on August 10. Both the single and the album deal with matters personal to Kirke; self-doubt, family matters, and pressures from society bubble to the surface in her lyrics. In the video for "Supposed To", which Kirke directed herself, an older woman allows herself to let loose. Kirke says of the track: "How rebellious would you feel if you had spent your life just doing things that you felt that you were supposed to do? That society told you to do?" Kirke explores that theme and more on the upcoming LP; she'll support its release with three shows at Union Pool on August 21, 22, and 23. Watch the video for "Supposed To" below. - Will Sisskind

Without dialogue, the EP not only serves as a means of transition; it elevates the imagery, encapsulating a vivid hope.





It's the end of LVL UP, band shares final song and tour dates

LVL UP, a longtime hallmark of the New York indie rock scene, announced earlier this week that the members would be retiring the project. In a statement shared on social media they referred to the band as “an extremely rewarding journey beyond anything we could have ever realistically imagined.” In the post, LVL UP shared a final single, “Orchard,” and farewell tour dates that will have the band travelling from coast to coast for one month. All of the members have other projects including guitarist Mike Caridi’s The Glow, bassist Nick Corbo’s Spirit Was, and guitarist Dave Benton’s Trace Mountains which features drummer Greg Rutkin—Rutkin also played in Cende, another indie rock favorite that recently called it quits. LVL UP will play a final show at Bowery Ballroom on September 28. – Cameron Carr

Evelyn hone their sound with new EP, perform at Knitting Factory on 07.01

With the release of Light Full, Evelyn presented itself as a fully materialized band. The riffs were striking, the vocals were fiery and the lyrics were streamlined to be evocative on first listen. How does a group like this, with their sound seemingly fully formed at launch, continue to engage their audience? By releasing a tighter, laser-focused follow-up. The four tracks of Slowly expand on the band’s philosophy of “hearts-on-their-sleeves” indie rock by allowing for the impassioned performances to be more dynamic. The opening song “Honey” charges forward with the swagger of a band more in tune with themselves, while the eponymous and spacey “Slowly” offers a dreamier take on catharsis. The more in sync performances allow for Slowly to find breathing room for each emotional element, so when a solo kicks into full gear, it burns brighter and remains stirring long after the EP is over. Evelyn continue to blaze a path that is wholly their own, where every small emotion is explored and bursts open in a wide-eyed release. You can watch the video for the “Slowly” single below and see Evelyn perform at Knitting Factory on July 1. -Tucker Pennington
