New Slaughter Beach, Dog LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Slaughter Beach, Dog, a.k.a. Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball, recently released a new album, Welcome, via Lame-O Records. One naturally dives head first into narrative depths, exploring the detailed imagery as loose, energetic melodies sustain the drive. These sonic anecdotes resonate, tugging at the emotive core while painting complex, sometimes heavy situations with an earnest, rebounding, "we’re alone in this together" reassurance.

Dylan Jane Record Release Show at Bourbon & Branch Oct. 6

Folk, at its core, is anchored in a songwriter’s ability to transport listeners to a "fly on the wall" perspective. That uninhibited point of view, in which communicative distance shrinks to a personal level, creates a bond. Tonight, as she celebrates the release of her new EP, Deceiving Yourself and Everyone Else, which was produced by The Lawsuits' Brian Dale Allen Strouse, Dylan Jane draws one in close at Bourbon & Branch. Silhouetted in Americana, the music imparts the fire-catching effects of pensive proximity, inviting warmth capable of sending a chill up your spine. A pair of locals, whom made contributions to the album, in the yearning emotive yet casual, alt-country, sonic steps of Friendship and the folk-spun, powerful elegance of Chelsea Mitchell (Dirty Dollhouse) helps in shaping this bill that is completed by Solar. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Once/Twice" - Suburban Living

Suburban Living will release their new album, Almost Paradise, via 6131 Records this Friday, October 7. Paced by the in-motion interplay of snapping percussion, synth and bass, “Once/Twice,” which you can stream now at GoldFlakePaint, jogs forward in a relationship-dissecting, emotion-exposing, candy-coated haze. Suburban Living performs at The Foundry this Saturday, October 8 in support of Sunflower Bean and The Lemon Twigs.
