New Chronic Anxiety/Dialer Split LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Chronic Anxiety and Dialer share space on their split release via Bunny Cat Records & SRA Records. Chronic Anxiety’s side is stacked with jarring, anxious, observational vocals, a continuous, primal, rhythmic push, and specs of chaotic noise, with a tenacious/groovy dichotomy. Dialer combines a synth-fueled musical attack, with raw, roaring vocals, revealing a harsh electro-punk reality. You can catch their record release celebration on Saturday, March 16 at Time Cube, where they'll be supported by Cult Objects and Pit Hair.





Alt-rockers The Ivins release new single, play The Basement on 04.09

There's a certain type of pop-punk or alt-rock that came out around 2008 or 2009, a sort of prototypical Imagine Dragons sound that still had a bit of the MCR/Fall Out Boy/Panic! drive that fell away once bands started getting militaristic and neo-Teutonic with their sound. The Ivins capture that transitional rock that set the tone for the turn of one decade of insecurity to another. And now, on the eve of yet another strange and unknowable ten years, the band will release their new single "Certain", an alt-rock anthem that will introduce new fans to The Ivins' sound and bring long-time listeners want more. Although The Ivins have a few years behind them in their careers -- as well as having their music used on Fox Sports -- they'll play New Faces Nite at The Basement on April 9th. While "Certain" is still a month away, get pumped for the release by watching the video for The Ivins' previous single "Roam The World" below. - Will Sisskind

Subtle Smiles go on a celestial journey on self-titled debut single

It's a rare occurrence when a musical project decides to name a track after their namesake. But instead of self-promotion, consider Subtle Smiles' self-titled debut single as a definitive introduction into their hypnotic synth-pop. True to their name, the Long Beach duo—producer Brian Frederick and singer-songwriter Marley Rae—wield a low-key, yet richly textured sound that beams with scintillating intensity. "Starlight/ star bright," Rae playfully sings as frizzy synths and a lithe guitar riff proffer an unearthly atmosphere. "Subtle SMiles" should appeal to those who enjoy the dance-oriented balladry of New Order and the lavish, introspective pop of A Sunny Day in Glasgow. 

"Subtle Smiles" is featured on the duo's debut LP, Significant Other. Look out for a physical release later this summer via Donut Sounds. Juan Rodríguez

Ghost Funk Orchestra brings their dark soul to Brooklyn Bazaar on 04.04

NYC group Ghost Funk Orchestra will be taking the stage at Brooklyn Bazaar on April 4th, and they will be bringing the sounds of their 2017 record Something Evil with them. In songs like “Fluorescent,” the group uses Djembe rhythms to lure the listener into a vortex of funky basslines and soulful vocals, their odd time signatures keeping you at the epicenter of the jam. The nine-piece ensemble of Julian Applebaum (bass), Seth Applebaum (guitar), Kyle Beach (drums), Stephen Chen (bari sax), Laura Gwynn (vocals/keyboard), Romi Hanoch (vocals/percussion), James Kelly (trombone), Joshua Park (guitar), and Rich Seibert (trumpet) utilizes every instrument at their disposal to craft a type of “heavy soul” or “dark funk” sound that fits their namesake. If you are up for something new, we recommend checking them out. - Rene Cobar

Distant Mountains release new album Stationed Lockstep

Distant Mountains released their latest album Stationed Lockstep on March 1the first full-length album the band self-engineered and self-produced (Light Rail Studios, San Francisco). Well they’ve done a fine job. The album as a whole is a breathing piece; songs fade and blend into each other with seamless mixing and a refreshing blend of experimental, alternative rock that might please fans of Wilco and My Morning Jacket. Track “Look Back” is an opening song with the epic quality of early Arcade Fire and has some clever-funny lyrical and vocal moments. Enjoy that deep warble for a second there. Our recommendation is to hold out for Side 2: tracks “Expensive Taste,” “Solstice,” and “Junipero” blend together with a seamless spacey quality. Distant Mountains is Paul McCorkle, Scott Lord, and Ben Manning. Stay tuned into their sites for upcoming shows. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
