Steve Gunn announces album, debuts psych-folk single

Steve Gunn is perhaps best known for his collaborations, having contributed his psychedelic-tinged folk guitar playing to tracks by Kurt Vile, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Michael Chapman, among others. But beyond that, Gunn is also a quality songwriter. His newest solo work—The Unseen In Between, out January 19th via Matador Records—continues the practice of those releases allowing Gunn’s talents to take center focus. The first single “New Moon” takes a 5-minute crash course into the guitarist's style and influences, beginning with tape-crisped acoustic guitar and floating vocals that welcome in tremolo-doused electric guitar and further adventuring into gentle psychedelia. Like much of Gunn’s work, it’s a drifting track that maintains soft edges and fits perfectly to light pensive moods. Watch the lyric video for “New Moon” below. – Cameron Carr





Weakened Friends bring tour to Burlington & play with Clever Girls at Higher Ground (11.14)

Burlington is in for a storm tonight. Locals Clever Girls will be joined at the Showcase Lounge of Higher Ground by fellow New Englanders Weakened Friends from Portland, Maine, who are currently touring with NYC's Nervous Dater. This tour de force of ferocious indie rock is sure to melt a few faces and maybe even leave a few tearing up, given the fact that Clever Girls have the uncanny ability to shred while simultaneously dance delicately around broken hearts with lyrics like "I will bite my tongue, I won't think out loud  / about how dumb I always get when I see you smile" (from "Dumb Smile.") They don't attempt to be overly clever or tongue-in-cheek or didactic about subjects like love or self-doubt. Their debut LP Luck (streaming below) shows the band isn't afraid to shoot in the dark; maybe they even prefer it that way, letting the goosebumps guide them as they fumble around, seeing what creates a spark. From the look of this album, it seems that they've figured out the formula for finding what's real and drowning out the rest. - Lilly Milman, photo by Hannah Blauner 





Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's Presents at The Elbo Room (11.14) Healing Potpourri, April Magazine, & Half Stack

Good things must once again come to an end it seems. It was announced in October that the beloved Elbo Room would be shutting down on January 1, 2019 -- and with it will go the monthly Throwin' Bo's at the Elbo Room showcase. Founder Eli Anaya, however, will continue to book and promote shows under the name Throwin' Bo's Presents, and tonight will be his second to last show ever at The Elbo Room. The bill is stacked with all locals. Healing Potpourri will bring along their classic easy-listening lounge-psych, which should fit right in with the lo-fi jangly rock of April Magazine. Half Stack will be performing live for the first time since the release of their psych-influenced California country LP Quitting Time. Come experience what may be one of your last shows at the Elbo Room, and maybe sing along to a few swan songs while you're there. Prepare by streaming some of our favorite tracks from these artists below. - Lilly Milman

Throwin' Bo's presents a night with Healing Potpourri, Half Stack, and April Magazine at Elbo Room Wedensday, November 14 @ 9pm $7 adv, $10 DOS // 21+





Cait Arq "Michael"

Independent Pop and Soul Singer Cait Arq recently released her debut single, “Michael”. This is something of a traditional torch song you may find in a broadway musical making instantly standout when shuffling through new releases these days. The single is taken from Arq’s forthcoming EP which is due out later this month.

New Track: "A Whole New Jupiter" - Writhing Squares

Out of the Ether is the forthcoming album from Philly sound sculptors Writhing Squares, which is slated for release on January 25, 2019 via Trouble In Mind Records. Exploring an extensive futuristic landscape within the free jazz jam of “A Whole New Jupiter,” the continuous thump of synth and percussion drives this progression. That relentless ferocity eventually branches off into pockets of intriguing experimentation. A heart-racing unpredictability finds a heaviness that manages to maintain a grounded cohesion no matter how far the nearly twenty-minute adventure spirals outward.
