New Mike Space Album Available for Streaming & Download

Mike Whalen, a.k.a. Mike Space, recently shared a new album Mike Gets Dark, which also features contributions from Justin Roth (Soft Idiot). There’s a delicate, finding-comfort-in-loneliness aspect to the recordings. Balancing bleakness with hopeful bright glimpses, these songs blend catchiness with an ear toward experimentation. "It's an album about the means by which we seclude ourselves, and how those same means can bring us back together with the people we love."





New Track: "Above" - Makeup Tutorial

Hushed vocals whisper through the gentle, gliding tempo of “Above,” the debut single from Makeup Tutorial. That fragile, intimate foundation is contrasted by the overriding threat of fuzz that lingers on the periphery. A hypnotic, noisy gust kicks up as the track shifts from an unassuming to all consuming auditory experience. It's a promising introduction to the fledgling, lo-fi project.





New Track: "Urgent Need to Leave" - Lightninging

Slick, far-reaching guitar lines, reinforced by splatterings of drums, create a sense of tension in motion on “Urgent Need to Leave,” courtesy of Philly four-piece Lightninging. The warmth of vocal harmony is countered by the sadness of a desire to depart. A controlled, combative, instrumental outpouring serves as scene-setting, mood-mimicking transitions. Channeling those feelings into fiery, doubled up, guitar bursts, the heaviness of the moment plays out in a melancholy manner.

Naytronix Releases “Come Back” off new LP

Nate Brenner, aka Naytronix, just released the single “Come Back” off his forthcoming album, Air, and it’s a fantastically mixed, warm and pleasing jam that pushes the limits of psych pop. The percussive backbone is blessed with drummer Hamir Atwal’s hard-to-mimic snappy jazz touch. The album features some other Oakland favorites, including Madeline Kenney and Tune-Yards’ Merrill Garbus. After his work scoring Sorry to Bother You, we're not supprirsed. “Come Back” is a killer teaser and we can’t wait for the full album, out June 7th on Botcave records. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





New Boon EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of Boon recently released its latest album All of Us Laughing, which is available on cassette via Glass Orchard Records. Waves of vocals refreshingly wash over you as pensive arrangements negotiate space, forming intriguing sonic shapes. Floating through that heady atmosphere, the words appear to be transmitted in as the music swirls around it. Boon will be performing next in Philly on Saturday, April 13 at Gay Baby Jail with Mavis the Dog, Carinae, Mother Tongues, and Stoner Will & the Narks.
