Son of a preacher man, Son Little, a.k.a. Aaron Livingston, has been building his reputation in the music industry for years working with the likes of such great artists as The Roots and rjd2. Stepping out on his own, you now can stream his new EP Things I Forgot over at The New York Times. The record is set to drop on November 11 via ANTI-. Son Little is currently on tour in Europe.


Far-Out Fangtooth Bon Voyage Show at JB’s Nov. 6

Hypnotic, experimental goth-punk outfit Far-Out Fangtooth are in for a huge November as they get ready to embark on their first ever European tour on Friday. But before the incendiary avant-psych group leaves, they're all set to throw a bon voyage party at Johnny Brenda's tonight, where they'll be joined by Brooklyn's LODRO. The show will be opened by fast-paced art-noise group Taiwan Housing Project, which is a collaboration between Mark Feehan of Harry Pussy and Kilynn Lunsford of Little Claw. Expect things to get tripped-out and creepy once these three bands take the stage on the same night! Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill


Free Download: "Nice To Be" - Circadian Rhythms

Circadian Rhythms have posted another track called "Nice To Be," the third song that has seen the light of day from their forthcoming EP A Passing Thought. The seven-piece coaxes airy, up-tempo grooves that, while reminiscent of a vintage sound, maintain a fresh energetic tone, utilizing a plethora of instrumentation (including accent punctuating horns) and coupling that with clear peaceful, Beatle-esque vocals. The single is sure to brighten your day. You can stream and download "Nice To Be" for free below.


Shaking Through w/Lewis & Clarke

Below is the latest Shaking Through episode featuring Lewis & Clarke, a project from Pennsylvania's Lou Rogai. It was curated by Shaking Through alum Strand of Oaks, a.k.a. Tim Showalter, who lended a hand and his voice. In the emotional footage, you get such great insight into Rogai's life as well as the process involved in putting together his beautiful new song called "The Silver Sea," which you can stream HERE. "No one should ever have to choose between music and family. Many who have made music their lives fear this moment..." (Photo by Shaking Through)


Sheer Mag Opening for Screaming Females at JB's Nov. 5

The three-headed lineup this evening at Johnny Brenda’s has been marked on my calendar for quite some time. The show begins with Sheer Mag, whose 7’’ is currently our album of the month and for a good reason; it genuinely rocks! The relatively new Christina Halladay-fronted group packs a decisive punch, filling all four songs with a garage-rock sound littered with saucy guitar riffs. Halladay’s snarly-combative vocals mesh well with a heavier jangly groove, which falls into place and provides a smooth shape to otherwise tough sounding tunes. Exuberant Tennessee garage-rockers Pujol, whose songs hover that threshold where grit and catchy-hooks intermingle, bridge the gap to New Brunswick juggernaut trio Screaming Females, whose live shows are a sight and sound to behold, captivating with all-out sizzling guitar shreds and a relentless hard-charging backbeat that will have the building bouncing tonight. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $13, 21+ - Michael Colavita
