New Track: "Kicker" - Alex G

As the arrival of Alex G’s new LP Beach Music steadily approaches, the anticipation builds with the release of his new single. “Kicker” utilizes juxtaposing imagery with a clean but rough around the edges riff and backend pop to assemble a grey-clouded daydream that finishes with a sweeping, smooth guitar-stretching outro. Domino Record Co. will release Beach Music on October 9. Alex G is set to perform at the First Unitarian Church on Saturday, November 14 with Girlpool and Eskimeaux. (Photo by Brent Smith)


New Kurt Vile LP Available for Streaming

Kurt Vile co-premiered his new full-length album b'lieve i'm goin down... over at WXPN, WFUV, KCMP, and KEXP earlier this morning. You can stream LP in its entirety below.

New Track: "Stay With Me" - Date Work

Date Work, the latest Cyberbully Mom Club off-shoot/project, has released its first single. “Stay With Me” takes a yearning unguarded vocal display and combines it with a breezy, Velcro-style, get-loose groove. It's decidedly upbeat, while keeping a zoomed-in approach. The song has familiar ties with Shari Heck's previous works, while offering a glimpse in a new direction.


The Micro & Macro Struggle of Taiwan Housing Project at Ortlieb's Sept. 20

Taiwan Housing Project, the Philadelphia-based brainchild of Kilynn Lunsford (originally of Little Claw and Tyvek) and Mark Feehan (of Harry Pussy), successfully bridges the gap between indie rock and screamo, delivering emotional live shows fueled by Lunsford’s haunting vocal performance and perpetual, reverberating basslines. Many other bands (Sunflower Bean and Bully to name a few) have recently amassed interest employing these same sonic elements. Especially with a younger audience, this success makes sense: Taiwan Housing Project and noise-pop, in general, is in your face, a constant reference to micro and macro struggle, becoming a political force in addition to an accessible, raucously fun musical release. They will be opening the bill tonight at Ortlieb’s with Solar Motel guitar virtuosos, Nick Millevoi + Chris Forsyth, and headliners, Black Spirituals. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 7:30pm, $10, 21+ - Blake Oetting

Mohican Paint a Post-apocalyptic Aftermath at Ortlieb's Sept. 19

The cinematic score one pictures in a post-apocalyptic scenario instrumentally aches with the feelings of destruction and loss. As one traverses the new terrain, those sullen moments are transformed as a desire to take action emerges; the tempo increases, and urgency rules over despair. The instrumental trio of Mohican orchestrates sonic scenes that paint the aftermath in a poignant hard-hitting manner - a noisy precision that hits like an adrenaline shot and is quelled by somber moments of solace. With The Abuse Is Character EP now being released via Bob Records on limited cassette, the band occupies the middle slot this evening at Ortlieb’s. Ream, a new project that includes members of Abilities, opens offering a relaxed yet instrumentally rich journey. Post-hardcore four-piece Let It Out Matt headline, acknowledging a sense of despair while exhibiting an instrumental precision that provides a stabilizing fortitude. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 7pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita
