The Writhing Squares Record Release Show at KFN Aug. 11

Kevin Nickles (Ecstatic Vision, Taiwan Housing Project) and Daniel Provenzano (Purling Hiss, Spacin') rocket through space as The Writhing Squares. Tonight, the duo celebrates their latest album In The Void Above (Siltbreeze) with a performance at Kung Fu Necktie. The hard-driving record circles as components of chaotic noise emanate amid the locked-down bass and percussion, while the vocal interjections serve as captain-esque reference points. Splashed with the additional sonic colors of flute and saxophone, this noise-rock meets jazz ambiance steers toward the unexplored in a twisted futuristic groove. This evening’s festivities will also feature the local psych-punk of Igneous Eyes and the commanding psych-rock power of Birds of Maya. The genre-elusive, jazz-rock freak-out that is Massachusetts’s The Blues Dream Box completes this adventurous night of music. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ (Photo by Ben Leaphart) - Michael Colavita


New Track: "No" - Eric Slick

“No,” the new track from Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania), will be featured on his forthcoming album Palisades. Surrounded by the ringing echo of guitar bouncing against the steady crisp pecussion, the keys offer a sense of melancholy and warmth, reinforcing his calm approach to the personal lyrics. Slick is part of a bill on Tuesday, August 16 at Johnny Brenda's that also includes Mary Lattimore, Ahleuchatistas, and Shimmer.


Debut Them Jones LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A film of filtered, floating clouds runs across the daydreaming vocals, but just as one plants his/her feet, the raunchy blues injection of guitar shoots like a lightning bolt. A Mountain of Nonsense, the newly released album from Them Jones, finds a sweet spot between drifting harmony amid the light rain of instrumentation and the band’s capability to spike into heavier blues-psych scenarios. In that duality of reserve passivity and assertive aggression, the music enthusiastically lives.


New Music Video: "Fools" - CLOAKZ

CLOAKZ, a.k.a. Zachary Ciancaglini (Raccon Fighter), creates for us an intense psychedelic experience in his latest video for "Fools," the opening track off his debut EP Semi-Autographic. The multi-instrumentalist proves to be a bit of a Renaissance man, shooting and editing the video himself. CLOAKZ will be performing live at Bourbon & Branch on Wednesday, September 21 with Kississippi and Hodera.

New Track: "More" - Ghost Gum

A rapid pace and the searing split of guitar frame the sound of “More,” the new song from dream-pop/noise combo of Ghost Gum. The track will be featured on the band’s forthcoming debut album The Past, The Future, Dwelling there like space. While dissecting existential questions and suggesting a desire to be buried at the sea, the song implores a pleasant tonal outlook.
