Peel Dream Magazine brings imaginative shoegazer to Secret Project Robot on 12.02

Peel Dream Magazine is the brainchild of NYC-based musician Joe Stevens. His debut album, Modern Meta Physic, has soft fuzzy charm with a mellow, psych core. It’s an exploration of retro sounds and new age-y philosophies wrapped up into 13 hazy tracks. The band's name hearkens back to the legendary BBC DJ John Peel, and its sound is also beholden to the past; part Velvet Underground and part Stereolab, PDM captures the warmth of nostalgia with its samples of old-school late tv programs, while transporting you to an entirely new era through its psych rock and lo-fi musings. In the best shoegazer tradition, Stevens’ airy vocal melodies are often barely audible in the mix, buried under the fuzz of the group's distorted guitars. Listen below, and drift off. You can catch Peel Dream Magazine at Secret Project Robot on 12/2. Sara Nuta





Gardener

It’s getting harder and harder find someone who hasn’t at least heard about noise-rock band Gardener. From house shows to dive bars to PDX Pop Now, the band has found themselves on more than a few lineups. Most recently, they joined Nick Normal for a fall tour of the (mostly) West Coast. While their Bandcamp only has one song, “Self Rapture,” it’s uniquely polished and layered. The vocals are surprisingly gentle, even for a psychedelic song. They float smoothly over the high-wired electronic chords. Hints of gospel inspirations dance in and out of the song. The guitar solos are phenomenal, wonderful explosions reminiscent of rock legends such as Queen. The song pays homage to early psychedelic-rock acts while also showing us who Gardener is as a band. Make sure you give it a listen below.

Riley Parker releases debut single "Vandalized"

Songwriter Riley Parker has released a debut single called "Vandalized", the first recorded sample of what the artist's Facebook page touts as "queer-dreamy indie rock". Imagine a Nashville version of Adult Mom, or perhaps a mellow Laura Stevenson. Parker has played a few shows around Nashville over the past year, and has even gone down to Atlanta to play Porchfest, which promoted itself as "Georgia's largest organic free-range crowd-sourced music festival". "Vandalized" is now available on all music streaming sites; take a listen to it below. - Will Sisskind





Pat Battle

Pat Battle has released an intense new album called Call Me By My Rap Name. Battle does not hold back musically or lyrically on this project touching on politics, race, and even love.

The album was primarily written and produced by Battle, but does feature contributions from Andriana Kritikos on of the two tracks.
