Vlad Holiday releases new track "Like In The Movies"

Romanian-born Vlad Holiday has released his fourth single of 2018, called "Like In The Movies". The dream pop slow jam follows "Children", "Tunnel Vision", and "Obscurity", all of which give an arena rock vibe a' la lost U2 track from the "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" era. Following such a productive year of releases and shows at major NYC venues, there is still no news of a possible album release. However, recent pictures on Vlad's Twitter have shown him writing lyrics on his phone, so more music seems to be on the way. Listen to "Like In The Movies" below. - Will Sisskind


A Deli Premiere: The Sofas' “Keep Pass Turn Again” from “Chop Water” LP out on 9/14

Emerging out of NYC's psych and noise rock scene, The Sofas premiere their latest single “Keep Pass Turn Again” here today. While the track features an explosive wall of buzzing bees guitars and heavy snare drum, the vocal approach is softer and dreamier.  Lyrics “it is strong – but I feel it when you're not around” are delivered with the cool detachment of J. Mascis on early Dinosaur Jr. records. Sonic breaks between central vocal phrase “burning out” include momentary bursts of chaos along with a well-placed minor chord. “Is this not enough? Enough to keep you waiting?” ushers in a pitch-bendy change, aligning more closely with fellow gazey rockers like Ringo Deathstarr. Extending this segment until the track's end allows the blending of guitars and vocals to provide an ultimately uplifting warmth. The band's full album “Chop Water” was mixed by Bill Skibbe (Protomartyr, The Kills, Blonde Redhead) and will be released by Jurrasic Pop Records on 9/14. -Dave Cromwell

Faux Furrs "Timothy's Vacation"

Faux Furrs released a new single and video earlier this month called “Timmy’s Vacation”. This is the band’s first release since their 2017 LP, Taxonomy, and a precursor to their forthcoming EP due out later this year. The single is the perfect end of summer vacation song filled with swilling Psych Pop.

You can catch Faux Furrs at Empty Bottle on August 28th with The Molochs and Smokescreens.


New Seldom Family EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duo of Chris Caulder & Patrick Norris, a.k.a. Seldom Family, recently shared a new EP Society (Vol. 1). A lush, dreamy sensibility creates an intimate, soothing, lullaby ambiance. The gentle sway of the instrumentation and the the echo of the vocals brings you back to those summer evening walks by the lake shore. The natural melodies ripple with a gentle breeze, creating an ideal isolation.

The Effens - Glum/Grunge "Half" Music Video

Toronto glam grungers The Effens have released a new EP “Burn Blush” on Lootbag Records. They also dropped a new music video for the single “Half”. This track has a dark, lazy opening that slowly escalates to the droning yet catchy chorus. This tune is a real 90’s throwback that’s like a creepier Stone Temple Pilots. The emotional intensity grows throughout the song ending with a very powerful chorus. “Burn Blush” EP available at their store. – Kris Gies
