Floam unveils video for "Hopes and Dreams" + plays Mercury on 06.28

Brooklyn native group Floam laces its sober basslines and guitar solos with a heavy dose of flair to create, as the group call it, “bouncy rock music” which betrays influences from bands like Talking Heads and Devo, with a touch of Roxy Music’s glam. The group’s 2017 EP Cocoon lays bare the quartet’s tensile style as it effortlessly transitions from upbeat songs like “Just A Cool Breeze” to more ambient tracks like “In A Field.” The band controls its sound efforlessly, honing vintage art rock influences with ease while remaining true to their own style. Check out the music video for the band's latest single "Hopes and Dreams" here below. - Rene Cobar

Behaviorist Announces New EP and Mercury Lounge Show

The Brooklyn-based band, Behaviorist, led by frontman Stephen Rhodes Chen, just announced the release of their debut, self-titled EP, self-titled. A close listen to the record reveals Rhodes Chen's social commentary and stream-of-consciousness thoughts on human interaction. The EP waddles between funk, experimental pop, and the highly stylized indie rock of elegant singer/songwriters from the past two decades. For a relatively young band still walking on the high of their sold-out release show at Pianos, this band is showcasing a lot of creative energy and interesting ideas - it's definitely worth a listen.  Behaviorist's first summer show will be at the Mercury Lounge on July 18th.





Birthday Bash at The Liquor Store

The Liquor Store’s throwing a birthday party for the lovely Heavenli, and they were generous enough to open it to the public. It’s going to have an eclectic group of artists playing, making for one sick lineup. Four great acts will be playing; dynamic power-pop group Ex-Kids, Portland’s dreamiest punks Cry Babe, queer and feminist punk rockers Cockeye, and experimental hip hop group Sumalienz. Plus, all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood so it’s a great night for a good cause.

 The show will be this Thursday, June 20th at the Liquor Store. Tickets are $7, and doors open at 9.

New Track: "Living Free" - Strange Ranger

Strange Ranger's upcoming album, Remembering The Rockets, is slated to arrive on July 26 via Tiny Engines. With the band's latest single, “Living Free,” daydreaming contemplation hovers as the ethereal keys mingle with the grounded percussion. Nostalgic yet conflicting, scene-setting lyrics suggest a communicative disconnect. Working through that fractured sense of attachment, the instrumentation collides highlighting the tension in our narrator's thoughts. The band is currently on tour with labelmates, fellow Philly artists The Spirit of the Beehive
