New Track: "Closer" (Feat. Daru Jones) - Modern Inventors

Modern Inventors has released a new track, called “Closer”. Enlisting the percussive services of Jack White’s Daru Jones, the song takes drums-meets-keys-and-bass groove, and spins it out in a free-floating psych manner. As the hypnotically smooth vocals coast on a pillow, a lingering exterior buzz hangs in the periphery. This electro-soul/R&B offers a loose, gripping, exploratory side that you’ll want to ride for a while.

The Mystery Lights bring their vintage psych-blues to Baby's All Right on 8.17

After moving to New York City from a small town in California, The Mystery Lights solidified their lineup and won over Brooklyn crowds with their vibrant and rough garage-psych. The band was the first to put out a release on Daptone’s rock imprint Wick Records back in June with their self-titled debut. The quintet’s vintage sound is deeply rooted in the spirited nature of garage and punk, while also bringing '60s blues rock to the table. Album opener “Follow Me Home” features fuzzy, hypnotic guitars and rumbling drums with lively fuzz-soaked rock and roll vocals that often employ a yelping delivery. “The energetic track “Too Many Girls” (streaming) evokes the early soul and funk records with a smoother delivery,  call and response vocals, and winding guitars. The Mystery Lights will be playing Baby's All Right on August 17th! - John Honan

New Track: "Negative Space" (Void Vision Remix) - Technophobia

Void Vision contributed a remix to Technophobia's 12" "Negative Space" single via Working Order Records. 100% of proceeds will be going to Life Pieces To Masterpieces, "a safe sanctuary for hundreds of African American young men and boys growing up in Washington, DC’s most poverty-stricken and volatile neighborhoods." The quaking percussion and ominous stir of synth aid in empowering the vocals, while creating a danceable track. Void Vision will be perform this evening at Kung Fu Necktie with Harsh Vibes and Pallbearer. (Photo by Woven In)

MilkBoy 5th Anniversary w/Ceramic Animal at MilkBoy Aug.13

Whether it’s a gradual climb, turbulent, enriching, guitar boosters, or a backend thrust that tempers those confident gravitational vocals, Ceramic Animal catches ones ear with their psych-pop semblance. That casual air lures, and then invigorates, tapping into astral grooves that sharply tunnel at warp speed as the instruments push toward their limits. It’s loose with the capacity to quickly flip the switch and push the afterburners. Tonight, as the band participates in the final night of the 5-year celebration for Milkboy, they’ll be joined by soulful blues inferno of Foxtrot & the Get Down and the energetic contemporary southern rock of The Weeks. Milkboy, 1100 Chestnut St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
