Not to miss: DOV's queer expressionism explodes on debut "Save (ft. TESHA)"

Tel Aviv-by-way-of Brooklyn electro-pop artist DOV brought pride in one’s identity to the forefront of his debut single,“Save.” “‘Save’ is about being gay, being queer - it’s a spiritual movement about releasing yourself from your past,” DOV says regarding the track, the first from his forthcoming EP Be Your Lover, out next year. Channeling his experiences as a queer man into explorative and defiantly different electronica, DOV produces a self-assured explosion of textures both synthetic and acoustic that is as original as enjoyable. The track employs tactile, plucky guitar parts against syncopated percussion and brooding keys, creating a layered, expressive sound that is simultaneously bright and dark, with TESHA’s vocal performance adding a layer of discordant pop to the mix. DOV’s strengths certainly lie in his willingness to take risks as a producer and multi-instrumentalist - here’s hoping his EP debut follows the same unique recipe.

Mad Honey

If Courtney Love had decided she wanted to make psychedelic music instead of punk, I imagine it would have been quite similar to the music Mad Honey produces. The band has a number of songs up on their SoundCloudloud, each one full of grungey, trippy, angsty noise. Without a doubt, the band’s strongest song is “Don’t Forget to Smile.” Maybe I’m just a sucker for some good surf guitar, but those quick, tricky riffs really got to me. The swirling notes of resentment and disquiet dance circles around the fast, almost cheeky guitar solos. Mad Honey also has an unexpectedly potent sweetness underlying much of their music. This is true especially in “10th and Burnside.” The synth notes fall into the subdued cymbals like water droplets hitting your bedroom window. Given that we have a lot of wet weather heading our way this week, I’ll make sure to keep Mad Honey in mind for my rainy days playlist.

Debut Missing Earth Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Swearin' recently came back with the release of Fall into the Sun (Merge Records), their first LP in nearly five years. However, during the group's hiatus, singer/guitarist Kyle Gilbride seemed to refocus his attention towards the studio, refining his recording and production skills while working on critically-acclaimed Waxahatchee releases, Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp, as well as with a plethora of talented acts like Yowler, Radiator Hospital, Dark Thoughts, and Mal Blum. It also appears that Gilbride has been working on new material of his own, under the moniker Missing Earth. We came across his fledgling project this past summer, with the interstellar track, "Mean Spirit," catching our attention. And now, you can stream and purchase his debut album, Gold, Flour, Salt, which is out via Salinas Records. The record also features Swearin' bandmate Jeff Bolt on drums and Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) and Maryn Jones (Yowler, Saintseneca, All Dogs) on backup vocals.





New Track: "Magic Coffin Ride" - Nyxy Nyx

"Magic Coffin Ride" is the title track off Nyxy Nyx's forthcoming LP, due out on December 7 via BLIGHT. Records. The single combines the tranquil, sunsetting aura of Brian Reichert's vocals with the steady, soft, supple plucks of acoustic guitar. Those weightless steps are countered by the fragments of raw fuzz that eventually fade into the distance as the "funeral procession" passes by. "Where this coffin is going, I don't know, but I'll ride this thing right out of this world." Have no fear.





Synth-pop trio PreCog play The East Room 11.23

To close out another Black Friday, dark indietronica group Precog will take The East Room's stage on November 23rd as part of a bill with Brooklyn industrial rock group Abbey Death and touring goth ambient rockers from Maryland, Ego Likeness. Precog have spent the year creating new music and playing around Nashville; their latest album, Pareidolia, came out last year to critical and public acclaim. The band takes inspiration from classic dark electronic groups like Depeche Mode and Massive Attack; however, their style holds back from copying tried-and-true genre formulas and instead experiments with implementing classical, industrial, and retrowave elements into their music. What results is music that reaches across timelines to become something that could be timeless. Take a listen to Pareidolia below, and catch them at The East Room on Black Friday. - Will Sisskind
