New Laser Background LP Available for Streaming

Always up for testing musical boundaries, Laser Background's Andy Moholt fearlessly journeys from birth to death while taking a deep look within for his new album Dark Nuclear Bogs. The ten-song LP just might prove to be his most cohesive and enjoyable release to date under the moniker. Dark Nuclear Bogs officially drops on April 28, and will be available via Mutual Crush/Endless Daze, but you can now stream it over at Stereogum. The band will also begin its extensive tour of the U.S. and Canada this evening, which will be making a stop home this Saturday, April 29 at Baird Mansion Atrium for the group's album release celebration with Norwegian Arms and Breathers.





Toma Steps Into The Spotlight With "Going Nowhere"

Toma is tracking towards an exciting year. The quartet just released their debut album, Aroma, and it's not too early to say that something special is brewing. One of the band's first singles "Going Nowhere" is indicative of the band's ethos and influences - deftly drawing from an eclectic trove of influences, yet ultimately rendering addictive originality. James Petralli, of White Denim, adds polish to the confectioned pop that exudes urgent excitement with a tinge of psychedelia. Singer/keyboardist, John Wittenmyer, displays faded yet poignant vocals that sail over an italo-influenced synth line, while Jake Hiebert's urgent backbeat injects adrenaline into the dance-laden track. "Going Nowhere", and Aroma as a whole, has an undebiable infectiousness that merely scratches the surface of what seems to be a deep well of potential that Toma has in store. Lets not put the cart before the horse, but given the quality of their music, it certainly seems like this should be the band's last self-released album.

Track Premiere: "Miss California" - Deadfellow

Mesacalifornia: A California Dream is the forthcoming album from Philly's own Deadfellow. Reminiscent of Joseph Arthur in tone, its debut single, “Miss California,” steps out from behind the introductory, acoustic strums and longing slide guitar, gathering percussive momentum. Surrounded by the vibrant glow of strings and horns, Hayden Sammak earnestly voices an open letter of affection, while its subject hovers in the distance as a guiding light home. Mesacalifornia: A California Dream is set to drop on June 9, and Deadfellow will be welcoming its arrival that evening at MilkBoy, where he'll be joined by The Classic Hunt.
