Pure Mids bring hazy sweetness on new single "Maybe It's Alright"

Things are looking for Pure Mids on "Maybe It's Alright." The trio of Will Gonzalez, Steve Martinez, and Daniel Jurado see acceptance as a pathway to change, a sentiment that carries weight as they deliver a catchy confection that hits an aural sweet spot. Martinez's staggered jangle tone leads the way as Gonzalez's softly drawled vocals get lost in the song's billowy groove. It charges through with a keen sense of songcraft, swung with a rhythmic drive that propels forward with a dreamy undercurrent. 

"Maybe It's Alright" is the latest single off of their forthcoming debut EP, Optimistic-ism, due out next year via Dreamtime Palace. Juan Rodríguez

 





New Track: "Glowing Clothes" - Torito

The bull’s on the loose! Torito unleashes a nonstop, lyrical torrent on his new single “Glowing Clothes,” which is slated to appear on his forthcoming release Fabric Scraps, scheduled to drop in January. Tenacious, stream-of-consciousness flows are welded with a scientific precision as the track speeds through the streets, meshing confidence with a comedic sense. Torito will be rushing the stage tomorrow night at Kung Fu Necktie, with Kiddead, Cody Cody Jones, and Felipe Pupo.





A Deli Premiere: Def.GRLS' "Good Time," live at Warsaw tomorrow 10.13

Def.GRLS are energy itself, a lazer-light show of heavy psych-pop madness. It’s impossible to listen to their music without feeling the grit of glitter in one’s teeth or hair. Def.GRLS, as contagious as they are, are helpfully releasing their first LP “GRLS GRLS GRLS” on 11.17 to keep the party going. But, just to get a hit of the glitter to make it until then, they leaked their single “Good Time” for us to premiere! Tomorrow Def.GRLS open for Andrew W.K., the party-master himself, at Warsaw. Don’t miss out! --Amanda Ogea





New Music Video: "Angel Time" (Feat. Davey & The Chains) - Jo Kusy

Featuring Davey and the Chains, “Angel Time” will be included on Jo Kusy’s forthcoming November release, The Amazing Jumpin’ Jo Kusy. A carefree, funky groove sets the tone, with the video’s black & white animation serving as a guide through the song in storyboard style. That loose, percussive/backend-pacing, dance quality taps into the vibe of legendary favorites like Bowie and Beck. You can catch Kusy tomorrow evening at Creep Records, as part of The Morelings's record release celebration.





Honey releases sophomore LP, plays Alphaville on 10/13

With the recent release of their sophomore album “New Moody Judy,” Brooklyn post punk rockers Honey deliver an aggressive collection of fuzz and wah-wah guitar-fueled songs.  Opener “Wage Agreement” is propelled by a furious power trio wall of sound featuring an ominously tense bending guitar part and half pleading/half shouting vocals, reminiscent of early Richard Hell.  Follow-up “Dream Come Now” amps up the groove to punk rock levels with a nod to the Ramones.  The album’s title track leans on a heavy psych guitar riff and Iggy Pop Detroit city drawl.  Deeper cuts like “Hungry,” “Bagman” and “Power” go for the high-speed velocity of an accelerated hyper-blues.  Album closer “Peggy Ray” rides fuzzy bass, slashing guitars and smack-down drumming for nearly eight full minutes.  The album is available on Wharf Cat Records and will be released with a party on Friday 10/13 at Alphaville. - Dave Cromwell
