Indie Rock

Summer Moon bring their own brand of New Wave to Rough Trade on 04.19

Summer Moon, the work of Nikolai Fraiture, is an indie rock/new wave outfit steeped in pop experimentation. The New York based musician explores guitar and percussion layering in ways that bring '80s pioneers like The Talking Heads to mind (in fact, single “With You Tonight” almost sounds like it has a guitar sample from “This Must Be The Place”). With subdued, reverb-soaked vocals, Fraiture lets the subtle production techniques speak for themselves. This project offers the energy and vitality of electronic dance music while satisfying those who crave analogue instrumentation in a musical climate increasingly devoid of it. Give their debut album, 'With You Tonight,' a listen now, go see them at Rough Trade on April 19 and check out this 360 interactive video of the single, below. - Andrew Strader

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

ELSEE - "ELECTRIC ON MY FEET"

Born and raised in Orillia, Ontario and now residing in Hamilton; this tune "Electric On My Feet" is one of the coolest pop tunes to come across my desk in a while. The thumpin drums immediately get your head movin' back and forth. The keys and guitar fill the perfect amount of space with licks goin' back and forth. Her voice is great though. Sounds like a classic lounge singer of the 60's was warped into the future and met up with a great indie-funk band. There's something mysterious and new about ELSEE. I'm interested to see what's next. - Kris Gies

The Beach Bats - "Beach Body"

Self professed "sandy garage rock from an inner city beach". The Beach Bats are from Hamilton. So they must be hangin out at the beach with the unswimmable water. If it helps them create these sweet surf-rock tunes then I hope they keep doin what their doing. Moon Mutt, Goth Bikini and Roger Banks are responsible for the Beach Bats. They mix surf rhythms with indie rock melodies along with 90s punk rock vocals. I could hear the tune "Beach Body" be played on the film "Clerks". - Kris Gies

New Music Video: "Toxic America" - Dark Web

Post-punk badasses Dark Web get hilariously freaky with the help of some Philly music community pals in their rad, new video for "Toxic America". The single can be found on the band's self-titled album, which is being released on cassette via Suicide Bong Tapes. They'll be celebrating its arrival this evening at Century with Blowdryer, Remote Control, and Illuminati Sequence, where the first 100 attendees will receive a free tape and download code with admission.

The 94 Knicks to bring indie vibes to Muchmore's 4/18

With a name like the '94 Knicks, maybe it's appropriate that this Brooklyn-based band is serving up the type of indie rock your dad used to make. With tons of distortion, catchy angular riffs, and break-your-heart levels of reflective and relatable lyrics, the group crafts tunes that may just make you nostalgic for simpler times... like when the Knicks were actually worth following. Listen to the '94 Knicks streaming below and catch them 4/18 at Muchmore's playing with Scott Sellwood, Huh and Paintings.-Olivia Sisinni
