Spa Moans "Obedient Vibrations" Coming Soon!

Spa Moans is the work of Jenny Pulse. On October 13th she will be releasing her debut mixtape, Obedient Vibrations, via Drop Medium. Jenny combines elements of post-industrial minimalism with early house and RnB. Her new mixtape is both sexy and spooky. Over 9 tracks, this self-taught producer grabs your attention and then twists it.

Below is a mix she made recently called “In My Mouth”. It is not from the mixtape, but may give you sense of where Spa Moans is coming from musically.





A Deli Premiere: Veda Rays share video for new single “Shadow Side”

Ahead of the October 6th release of their new single “Shadow Side,” Brooklyn art rockers Veda Rays are premiering in our blog the video for the record's titletrack (streaming below).  The single marks the band's first recorded material since 2014, and serves up a mix of organs, open electric guitar chords, and percussive tour-de-force, pulsating under deep, dramatic vocals.  With images of faces crossfading with ominous looking trees, the video introduces a lugubrious, dreamlike atmosphere. While the song progresses to deliver an ample hook in the chorus, the mood remains dark and mysterious, with the video now showing dark, full body figures with covered faces and rabbit masks, and a shrouded female dancer, all in white.  Referring back to the track's title, the band describes this symbolism as “a subliminal reaction to the projection of our collective shadow.”  “Shadow Side” will be released on their own Alleged Records imprint. - Dave Cromwell





New Levee Drivers LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The long, long wait is over; Levee Drivers' new full-length album, Motel City Honey, has arrived. Steeped in guttural, rabble-rousing, country-blues, the collection of songs taps into a swaying sensitivity. Whether it’s a road-worn yearning or an uptempo rumbler of love lost, the visceral magnetism draws one in. Traveling home in the twilight, the tunes continuously matriculate ahead, but lament in an emotive sense of the past. Levee Drivers is set to celebrate its release this evening at Johnny Brenda’s, supported by local pals The Lawsuits and and Virginia's The Dawn Drapes. (Photo by Bob Sweeney)





Sure Sure let their funky selves free on "Hands Up Head Down"

Art pop quartet Sure Sure first caught our attention with songs like "New Biome" and "The Expert," both of which brought a slick pop sound with an inventive stroke. A year later, the band is expanding their reach with their latest single, "Hands Up Head Down," where they let their funky selves free with a slinky groove that recalls the sumptuous prog-pop of Genesis and Steely Dan. The track benefits from these odd sonic contrivances that add to its overall playfulness, but never do they lose sight of a catchy, earworm chorus that might just place them on commercial rock radio. Even if they light the room with a breezy and easygoing disposition, their careful attention to detail on "Hands Up Head Down" proves they're intent on writing songs that are flat-out fun without undermining their own intelligence.

Sure Sure are playing The Fonda on January 28, 2018 supporting Hippo Campus.
