Indie Pop powerhouse Yoke Lore releases new EP at Baby's All Right on 7.07

Yoke Lore’s newest EP Goodpain is a triumph of "indie pop persuasion." In a genre cluttered with cookie cutter synths, bubblegum lyrics, and insincerely grandiose choruses, Yoke Lore’s work sets itself apart with its concision. Restraint is the virtue of good music production, and the Brooklyn based artist demonstrates to be familiar with the concept, giving the listener space to "breathe," while still creating memorable tunes enveloped in a charming, abstract aura. His voice soothes, surprises, and soars on this project, showing his range as a songwriter and as an artist. After a series of well received singles, Yoke Lore will be kicking off a summer tour with his EP release show at Baby’s All Right on July 7th. - Lilly Milman, photography by Wes Santos & Alex Gomez

PREMIERE: A Volcano - "Spooky"

A duo befitting of their name, A Volcano execute a sound that's explosive, eternal and impactful. Distinctly but appropriately defined "cave noise," Johnny Brooke and Jesse Chambers echo a harsh and piercing experimental sludge that while jarring at first is completely accessible and near addicting. That same feeling carries over to their new music video for their track "Spooky," where the style of it is something you'll want to watch over and over again.

"The name 'Spooky' came from the chorus riff, I guess. It was the spookiest, most evil riff we'd written at the time," says Brooke, the guitarist and vocalist for the band. According to Brooke, the track's name also partially came from the two falling into a hole of watching X-Files and Chambers asking if was "time to get spooky" (which Chambers can be heard screaming at the beginning and end of the song).

As for the video, the idea for the concept and the process came from illustrator Nate Sonenfeld who also did the artwork for one of their tapes. Sonenfeld filmed at least two versions of Brooke and Chambers performing in their practice space, layered the images over one another and then rotoscoped nearly 1,600 separate frames to give the video the look. "This is why the video looks so nuts," Brooke says. "And Nate's nuts, too."

From the digital submissions: Agouti psych-pop single, "Chameleon"

Agouti, a self-described "DIY psych" band fronted by Carmen Caruso, has released a new single entitled "Chameleon." An intriguing blend of Euro-rock influences ranging from Portishead and the Cranberries to hints of early Radiohead, "Chameleon" is a coolly melancholic dirge that laments existing in one's own skin and illustrates a longing for disassociation. Listen to the single below! - Ethan Ames

New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

A damp dreariness meshes with soothsayer, psych guidance on Blackberry Wine, the freshly hatched EP from Sandcastle. Distant vocals mystically beckon. Enchantingly drawn closer, one fights the urge to fall under the musical spell, remaining alert and on guard. Tinged in lovely loneliness, the journey is a relaxing requiem.
