Ghost King bring intense work ethic to their slacker-rock on "Slither"

Slacker rock is often unfairly misunderstood from wider audiences. The lo-fi and haphazard veneer often gets misconstrued for lazy songwriting, but bands like Ghost King illustrate why that misconception is so undeserved. On "Slither," they combine the more psychedelic riffs of surf rock with the rickety velocity of garage rock, swerving back and forth through these inspirations with ease, effusing a multifaceted, hardworking ethos. The video for this latest single features the group dedicated to cleaning their community in an enthusiastic and slipshod manner, mirroring the dynamic sound of their music. This latest single is the first release from their upcoming album Dunbar Swamp which will release next January, and you can stream the video below. -Tucker Pennington

Gnarcissists play free Baby’s All Right show 10.27

Gnarcissists are a rare band—raw and practically splitting apart with convulsive energy. Not that the sound is something unfamiliar, there’s a bit of The Stooges relentless garage rock energy, a twinge of Sex Pistols snarl, and enough drug references to bring the Velvet Underground to mind. But Gnarcissists’ newest EP, released earlier this month, captures that feeling of something alive happening in front of you in ways that many retro rock and rollers are unable to. The band plays next at Baby’s All Right on October 27 for a free show put on by Dr. Martens. – Cameron Carr

New Track: "Give Me Something" - Scantron

A new single, “Make It With You,” has arrived from Scantron, but let's talk about the flip side. “Give Me Something” has that sweaty riff-fueled buzz. The stomp of the rhythm mingles with the vocals in a cool, catchy manner, injecting a bit of hand clapping for good measure, before hitting overdrive with an infectious snarl. You can catch the band as part the TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb Halloween Murdershow IX, which also includes Sixteen Jackies, this Saturday, October 27 at Underground Arts.
