New Hardwork Movement EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

On their first release as a fully fleshed nine-piece, Hardwork Movement develops a sonic depth. A soulful brand of hip hop is led instrumentally by the triumvirate of bass, keys, and drums. Peppered with accents of flute and trumpet, the group creates a well-rounded tone amid the confident authority of intertwined lyrically spoken and sung vocals. For The People captures a pensive, proactive place, stepping forward into the moment. You catch the collective tonight at Underground Arts, where they will be in party mode, supported by Ill Fated Natives and Aleana.


Annie Hart releases solo album, plays two NYC shows on 9/15 and 9/25

Already known for her decade long activity in dreamy electronic three piece ensemble Au Revoir Simone, Annie Hart releases her first solo album Impossible Accomplice today. Self-recorded in true DIY basement style (with one of Fred Armisen’s rooms serving as the only other tracking location during a brief stay in Portland) first single and video "Hard To Be Still" (streaming below) celebrates oscilloscopes and devoted love. Heavy on deep bass synths, the chorus “you gave me what I want” and “I’ll never give you up” is an instant earworm. The video is simple, managing at once to be stilish and humorous - it even features a revealing "outtakes" section at the end that reveals how the DIY approach extended to the shooting process, not only the recording one. Catch Annie live on 9/15 at Main Drag Music (a free event featuring live keyboard looping and vibraphone, celebrating the record release), and supporting Matt Pond PA and Wild Pink on 9/25 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. - Dave Cromwell


New Track: "John Wilkes Booth" - TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

It's been over three years since we've had a new album from TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb. Well, this evening at Johnny Brenda's, you'll have a chance to cop his new EP Dancing Out the Door at the band's vinyl release celebration with Lightninging and Haunted Homes. The album officially drops on October 13 via Good Behavior Records, but you can take a listen to its raucous, piano-boogie lead single, "John Wilkes Booth," which is also featured on the label's Hurricane Relief compilation. All proceeds will be going to the victims of Harvey and Irma.

Oliver Ignatius shares video for "Light and Dark"

In his debut single "Light and Dark," Oliver Ignatius taps into an unlikely but interesting combination of sounds: crunchy guitar solos, soaring synths, a blasting horn section, and dreamy laid-back, Queen-esque vocals. We can't tell you why it works, exactly, but it does. Perhaps it's Ignatius' immaculate grasp of melody and placement of harmonies throughout that weaves all of these elements together into a funky, groovin', garage-y track. The founder and spiritual leader of Bushwick's DIY studio/label Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen sure is onto something- and it definitely does feel like something a little higher. Check out the track's video, streaming below. - Geena Kloeppel


Dinner shares video for "Siren Song," plays the Bootleg on 10/01

Dinner, the synth pop project of Danish producer/vocalist Anders Rhedin, is a suave wanderer on the video for his latest single, "Siren Song." The Copenhagen via L.A. transplant gallivants to the night's natural rhythm with a coquettish demeanor, thinking about his pleasure-filled day as he flirts straight into the camera with his boyish, yet penetrating eyes. Rhedin is simply having fun with it, taking cues from the New Romantics who made the boys and girls swoon back in the golden age of MTV. 

"Siren Song" is taken from Dinner's recent second effort, New Work, which is out now via Captured Tracks. Get lost in his dreamy vision when he plays The Bootleg Theatre on October 1st.
