New Matt Oleksa Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Clutch is the the latest solo release from Matt Oleksa (St. Peter's Dog). The vivid, movement-inducing “Confetti” sets the stage for these new batch of recordings. Mercurial electro-synth create a sense of ominous tension within an on-the-go flow. Those haunting grooves grip in a manner befitting a cinematic score.





New Track: "Change" - Bungler

Paul Hewes, a.k.a. Bungler, recently shared the track, “Change,” which is featured on his upcoming album Moon. It also appears as the B-Side to The Sun Shines From Very Far Away, due out on February 23 via Super Wimpy Punch. Solemn somewhat formal keys usher your ears in. However, with a twinkle and drum kick, just close your eyes, and prepare to enter a meditative dreamstate. The song acknowledges the malleable nature of existence, which is countered by the stabilizing force of those around you.





New Track: "Jasmine Seeds" - Boon

All of Us Laughing is the forthcoming album from Boon, and will be released on March 29 via Glass Orchard Records. On its lead single, “Jasmine Seeds,” the steady march of percussion maneuvers forward as overlapping and intersecting vocals lines create a complex psych-pop harmony. Depending on which perspective one chooses to hear from, the song morphs into different shapes. It is as if multiple and at times, conflicting angles converge in a moment of clarity.

The Wise Ways of “Wise Words” by Tay and the JangLahDahs

There is much to take in with Tay and the JangLahDahs’ latest EP, “Bloomin.” Self-described orchestral psych-folk-rock, this group brings a booming serenade of talent from all angles. There’s the strong vocals of Tay Robin, who sounds like what Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries might have sounded like if she weren’t always yodeling. There’s that lovely stand-up base with a cooing rich trumpet and are we hearing a a glockenspiel? An electric violin? A mandolin? It all comes together with a rich folksy feel, an Irish twist, and delightful harmonies. Purely enjoyable stuff here. Come see them play at The Starry Plough on February 22 and hey, check out their music video for “Wise Words.” Ah, soothing purity. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Strange Majik’s music is vibrant, acidic rock and roll, plays Coney Island Baby 2.20

New York’s Strange Majik had no intention of reinventing the wheel on last year’s Channel T, an acidic tour de force of vintage rock and roll. The record has its fair share of winks and nods to the titans of yesteryear, primarily Jagger and Hendrix, never straying into territory we’d define as “experimental” by contemporary standards. That being said, Strange Majik’s intentional decision to hone their guitar chops and produce something very AM radio appropriate is part of the reason Channel T is the kickass album it is. There are no bells and whistles, no indie gimmicks that have become increasingly common as a means of cutting through the noise; it’s just impeccable, classic musicianship from start to finish.

Strange Majik will bring their classic sound to Coney Island Baby on February 20th, supporting Kelley Swindall and Revel In Dimes. Stream Channel T below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Sam Watson
