Like Herding Cats share video for “Affliction” + play Coney Island Baby on 08.09

It's been over four years since Like Herding Cats put out proper studio recordings of new material.  With the recent release of their Curious Faces EP, the band delivers five creatively stimulating and impeccably recorded tracks.  Along with the record comes the accompanying music video for their single “Affliction”, streaming below.  Employing his own Carousel Media House video production company, frontman Dom P produced and directed this visually striking achievement. Filmed in a historic Catskills home, the imagery depicts a stylish but troubled woman with precise quick cuts and focused details. The song itself is a brilliant update on the very best elements of mid-80's-to-early-90's alternative pop.  From the opening three snare drum shots, warm keyboard pads, quick pulsing bass guitar and distinctive repeated sonic hook--echoed by overlaying guitar licks--every note has it's place and purpose. Like Herding Cats play next at Coney Island Baby on 8/9 with Slowness, Heavy Birds and Holy Tunics. - Dave Cromwell





Rapper GOOGIE elevates the math with new Floating Polygons album

Googie hails from a long line of rappers with legendary voices: Method Man, GURU, Ludacris, Gift of Gab, etc. Dudes with voices like this--cut with that perfect amount of gravel but with effortless enunciation, and some glint of unfathomable swag--they never needed to say anything of substance for us to clamor after their music. Funnily enough, they still usually end up saying more than many of their less-blessed peers. Googie flexes styles, rhyme patterns, and topical ruminations like he’s teaching a master class. In the video for the first single “Molecules,” Googie breaks down some science for all the simpletons still squabbling over whether J. Cole or Drake dropped the hottest fire last year. -brokeMC

From the Submissions: Francis Aud brings his soul-pop to Mercury Lounge 08.09

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Francis Aud describes his music as “funk and soul music that is almost as charming as he is.” His most recent release “Friends Like Us” is a sweet summer song about friends who “don’t stay just friends for long” as he puts it. It has the universal charm and likability of a good pop song, blended with grooving synths and pulsing drums that dare you to dance. His debut EP Tender Thoughts, released last October is a collection of engaging, playful tunes. “Share this Bed” is a blues-inspired love song, while “Yeah!” is a powerful, heartfelt ballad complete with a commanding brass section and old soul tenderness. You can catch Francis live with his band “The Professionals” this Thursday, August 9 at Mercury Lounge. -Lily Crandall
