New Music Video: "My Mouth Is Skinned Like An Apple" - Thin Lips

Thin Lips have been tearing it up all across the country in support of their latest album Riff Hard (Lame-O Records). And with the band barreling through the Fillmore this evening with tourmates Modern Baseball and Joyce Manor, we have a new music video for you for the track, "My Mouth Is Skinned Like An Apple," which was directed by Adam Peditio. Frontwoman Chrissy Tashjian recently shared in an email to The Fader, "So much of my music is about being a queer and so I just kind of wanted to show a day in my life. I met with Adam and just showed him all of the little things I collect, my altar, and some of my most special friends (some couldn't make it obviously). [The video is] just basically a day of what is important to me and what impacts and influences me most."


Sheena & Thee Nosebleeds Record Release Party at Ortlieb's June 25

Sheena Powell (of The Baptist Preachers) has come together once again with metalheads Thee Nosebleeds to bring "hellfire and brimstone rock and roll". Sheena & Thee Nosebleed are releasing a new album, titled The Revolution Will Be Amplified, and they'll be celebrating its arrival this evening at Ortlieb's. (The first 25 paid admissions will receive a copy of the record.) Punk pals Thorazine will be giving their support, and they should have some new material, after being dormant for nearly a decade. Rap/funk artist C-Dot and Dirty Jerz's Come And Get It round out the lineup. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


Free Kittens & Bread Rock Out Some Sad Tunes with “American Miserablist”

Austin-based guitarist Chase Spruiell has gathered his bandmates once more (Mark Hawley on guitar, Nate Lugo on bass, and Gabe Garcia with drums) to create this newest album from up-and-coming indie punk rock band, Free Kittens & Bread. The jovial group’s newest effort, called American Miserablist, was released through Bad Wolf Recordings, and it is eleven short punkish songs that will give you the perfect amount of rush.

Standing opposed to the lighthearted humor of their band name, each song from the album is marked by some sad, ornate lyrics. It’s kind-of an emo alternative- a great break-up album that provides listeners with a good mix of slow and fast songs for any situation that might have one down, but without the screaming and all those not-always welcome emo trappings. That’s nice for those of us who don’t really get the emo thing, as that genre and country have a pretty good lockdown on the sentimental break-up racket, which just isn’t that fair. If nothing else, that alone is worth appreciating this excellent piece of local indie/folky/punky rock music.

If you’re going through a rough patch, give a listen below, and maybe set a few of those sorrows free with some music that gets where you’re at.

Paperhaus plays DC Nine on 7.13

Paperhaus’ “Silent Speaking” (streaming below) beckons you in unabashedly with chaotic rumblings resembling a stampede of cymbals, hi-hats, batucada-esque drumming, and jittery bursts of guitars. The arrhythmic clamor works at once both with and against one another before evening out and transforming into a high energy tune of angular riffs and melodic shifts. The Virginia based band, whose previous work gives a hearty nod towards psychedelic blues with hints of math rock, finds itself leaning ever further into the angular soundscapes of the latter with its most recent single. However, the fervent energy that made their self-titled debut so dynamically spectacular remains ever more present in their sound. If this single is any indication of what we should expect from Paperhaus in the future then color me intrigued. Definitely keeping an eye out for them! Catch Paperhaus on July 13 at DC Nine. - Adriana S. Ballester

Beca plays Sofar Sounds on 7/28

Electro pop artist Beca's mix of dance and synth pop sounds brings back the term throwback in the best possible way. Her kinetic songs demand your immediate response, with dark, Euro disco-tinged rhythms that could be described as if Cold Cave enlisted Kylie Monigue to collaborate on their latest project. Which exhibits the potency of her focus: Beca surely wants you to join the dancefloor, but she'd appreciate it if you'd pay attention to her propulsive tempos, too.

Beca's debut full-length album Ecliptic is out now via  All Scene Eye. You can catch her live at the next Sofar Sounds on June 28th.
