Video Daughters bring their powerful Noise-Garage to Shea Stadium 8/30

Melodic cacophony is one of those grinding paradoxes that I'm hesitant to even entertain, but it's the most apt description we found when trying to put into words Brooklyn-based band, Video Daughter's music. Throughout their eponymous titled EP, the self-proclaimed "avant-garage" rockers deliver a new-york-punk sensibility engulfed by an inferno of noise. Despite the bludgeoning force that comes out of the album, the band never ceases to forge a strong melodic presence, even when their songs are lead by march-like percussion ("La Petite Mort"), or border on manic ("Nunu").

Oh Malô bring their soulful and dreamy sound to Great Scott on 8/26

A book review of one of Murukami's novels once said his work was influenced by so many writers it ended up being incredibly original. There's some truth to that description, and it might just apply to Boston band Oh Malô as well. They have sound that's very difficult to pin the tail on, but perhaps taking an index of the components and parts would help. On their latest LP, As We Were their guitars are deeply atmospheric with a light psych feel. The vocals are deeply soulful, and wouldn't feel out of place on any RnB track. The rhythm section, though, is downright muscular, emboldening the sound with an alt or even prog-rock flavor.  The easiest comparison to make would be to Local Natives, but that doesn't help much either, considering they to deftly evade most categorization also. Suffice to say, Oh Malô make quality music that sounds familiar and fresh all at once. You can see them live at Great Scott on 8/26. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Shana Falana prepares for release of sophomore album + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

After perfecting their nuanced sound via touring and single releases, the shoegaze duo, Shana Falana, impressed critics with a 2015 debut LP titled Set Your Lightning Fire Free. Follow-up album, Here Comes the Wave is scheduled for a fall release later this year. The band's sound hits all the right sensory marks dealing in positive wonderment and a sense of discovery. Vocals, as sung by singer/guitarist Shana, soar over chiming guitars and tom-tom drums, all of which keep pace with affected, drone-y guitars.

New Track: "Come True" - Suburban Living

A winding labyrinth of keys/synth twists before being broken threw by the steady percussive punch in the opening of Suburban Living’s new single “Come True”. The song will be featured on their upcoming album Almost Paradise, scheduled for release on October 7 via 6131 Records. “Come True” embraces a multidimensional approach, as the pleasant constant movement is countered by the somewhat secretively delivered vocals, sticking in a personal, pacifying manner.

New Track: "3 Months And A Week" (Feat. Eskimeaux) - Power Animal

It's been a moment, but we are happy to hear that Power Animal, a.k.a. Keith Hampson, has a rad new single called "3 Months And A Week," which premiered at Stereogum. It features former Philly native Gabrielle Smith, a.k.a Eskimeaux, whom Hampson had a challenging personal yet fruitful musical relationship with. "I think, in general, both of us were much more capable of expressing our feelings in the form of songs than face-to-face, so we would hang out together and then go home and send each other songs. In a way we had an ongoing, passive dialogue that was sometimes romantic and sometimes really hurtful to each other." His latest track also inspired Eskimeaux to write and record the song, "Broken Necks," off her 2015 breakout album O.K. (Double Double Whammy), as a response. "3 Months And A Week" will appear on Power Animal's upcoming album Good Wind Pt. 1, due out hopefully later this year.
