New Rosetta LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quintet of Rosetta recently released its 6th full-length album. Utopioid hovers in a menacing yet meditative atmosphere, unleashing a decided heaviness that smacks of immediacy, while creating pockets of contemplative space. The band is gearing up to head out on an extensive fall tour next month with Tucson's North.

Buzz Alert! Maybird opens for Portugal, the Man + lands September residency at The Knit

2017 has been a good year for NYC's melodic psych rockers Maybird: after releasing the "Unraveling" EP back in June, including the single “Keep In Linefeatured by The Deli a few months back, the band was asked in quick succession to play a September residency at the Knitting Factory and to open a couple shows for Portugal, The Man during their upcoming fall tour. At the Knit, on September 14th, 21st, and the 28th, you'll also be treated to fellow NY psych-flavored projects Evolfo and Steady Sun, the former joining their performances on the 14th, and the latter on the 21st. But for now, check out Maybird’s most popular single 'Turning into Water,' streaming below. - Pearse Devlin

Toulouse guides soul-electronic to Communion NYC 09.05

Electronic NYC artist Toulouse can produce anything from dancey electronic tracks to mellow soulful songs like "Reach Out" (streaming), featuring his borderline stoic vocals. With a few singles to his name, the project has garnered considerable attention, landing a spot on the soundtrack of Fifty Shades Darker with "No Running From Me", a soul-themed track that features a blues-based melody fit for a vintage rock and roll scene. The artist will be playing Communion NYC 09.05. - Tafari Lemma

Charlie & The Evil Mothers head to The 5 Spot on 09.08

Charlie Shea is the mastermind behind the Nashville project Charlie & The Evil Mothers, a psych influenced indie garage rock outfit with two releases under its belt. The first is a self-titled EP that finds its home in a bluesy and experimental psychedelia. More recently, with the help of Todd Bolden on bass and Luke Fedorko on drums, Shea has released the single “Strings” (streaming below), a much more upbeat use of his signature croon. The guitar-driven track is a moody foray into the realm of fast-paced, reverb-drenched rock. Charlie & The Evil Mothers will be taking the stage next at The 5 Spot on September 8th at 9 pm. - Lilly Milman

NYC Record of the Month: Nick Llobet (Live at Sunnyvale on 09.10)

The second most important thing in rock or folk music, after the actual song, is the vocals' character. There's no need to be a great singer if you are blessed with a voice that carries that elusive quality. Nick Llobet, an upcoming solo act from the NYC area, has it, and also happens to write really good songs. With his latest EP, Where To?, released this June, he delivers four gritty but immensely charming tracks: one is purely acoustic dream-folk bliss - with not-so-dream lyrics ("Puke My Thoughts"), while others flirt with indie, lo-fi and psych influences. Title track, "Where To?" is a wandering psych-folk gem for laying on the grass, channeling Bob Dylan's spoken singing and Mac DeMarco's inventive but simple arrangements.  "Ear to Ear" borrows the loud/quite/loud production trick of the grunge bands of the '90s, but adapts it to a songwriting approach that's poetic, rather than energetic. Closer track "River" is a simple a garage-pop song you will want to dance along to live, at Nick Llobet's next show, scheduled for September 10th at Sunnyvale. Do not miss! - Allie Miller
