Skull Practitioners

Where the genre of “psych rock” will usually refer to “psychedelic rock,” Skull Practitioners take it to a level where the meaning “psychosis rock” would be more appropriate, hurling harsh guitar tones and thumping bass haunts, along with an avalanche of drum fills, into a whirlwind of amplified delirium. The NYC trio produces a heavier and more diverse wall of sound than most five-piece bands out there, swelling and punching up and down scales and arpeggios, blasting through fuzz and decay, resulting in a bleakly intense look into a mind lost. With different vocalists featured on various tracks, it might be difficult to discern an established frontman, but does it matter? The sounds coming from Jason Victor and Ken Levine’s amps, back Alex Baker’s drums are the huge focus here. – JP Basileo

Callers announces third album for October

Callers announces third album for October

There's a surprise 'round every corner and corners in plenty to be found on Brooklyn-via-New Orleans duo Callers' third album 'Reviver'. When you think you're about to comfortably dive into some light-hearted pop the skippy beat breaks down; once you're settled in the groove, Sara Lucas' soulful R'n'B vocals pierce through and you're heading towards memories of Motown classics but then, as you begin to be seduced by her sultry tones, a barely-there punk cadence or jerky rhythm kicks in and you're in for 'something completely different'.

Fact is though, all twists and turns flow seamlessly, and the experimental dexterity with which Sara & Ryan drift back and forth between one another's influences would make any middle-ground, if they were to seek one... well to put it bluntly, a waste of creative potential. The album only comes out October 9th via Partisan Records, but here's a teaser for you, streaming below; meanwhile, you can catch Callers as they head back to NYC in the course of their current tour, on September 20th at The Music Hall Of Williamsburg. - Tracy Mamoun
