Ritual Talk releases single "Help I've Been Dreaming", plays Pianos 08.04

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don't miss them live!– Pearse Devlin





Devon Gilfillian Releases “Here and Now” Video + kicks off fall tour

For Nashville-via-Philadelphia artist, Devon Gilfillian, soul music is all about one’s roots. In his new video for the track “Here and Now,” he infuses his Nashville surroundings into his R&B music, creating a soulful mix of folk, blues, country, and groove. According the Gilfillian, the song is about a woman who he will one day love and live in the moment with. He is currently on a southern tour, and will be back in Nashville on August 17th to play the Soulshine Music Loft. -Lilly Milman, photo by Lindsey Patkos





New A Stick and A Stone Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

It's been over four years since A Stick and A Stone's last release Night Vision and debut Opal Nightly (which is way too long, in our honest opinion). But thankfully, the project's mastermind, transgender singer-songwriter Elliott Harvey, has returned, with a partner in crime in viola player Myles Donovan (Disemballerina, Negative Queen, Ominous Cloud Ensemble), for their hauntingly captivating new album The Long Lost Art of Getting Lost, an apt title for the ethereal headspace and otherwordly places that the duo takes us during this seven-song journey, which is now available via Sentient Ruin (US vinyl/tape), Cold (EU vinyl), Breathe Plastic (EU tape), and Sprit House (CD). You can also stream the EP below, and catch A Stick and A Stone live in Philly tomorrow night at Panorama Art Studio with Nothern Liberties, Voyager, and Jesse Sparhawk.

Cutouts debut album 'Baby Blue Suede,' play Mercury on 7.28

One of the most surprising aspects of Brooklyn band Cutouts’ debut album Baby Blue Suede is that the title originates from a poem about a Billy Joel song. The crooning of Cutouts is a far leap away from the pop legend provocative pop-rock, but in a weird way, it makes sense for this band. Their thematic goal on this album was to foray into the complex and unpredictable — and they do this well, over a psychedelic soundscape of guitar loops, distortions, and even a refreshing violin part. Their use of characters in songs like “Nina” and “Baby Blue Suede & the Dangerous Three” shows their narrative capacity as artists, as well as their ingenuity. Cutouts are definitely a band to watch in the Brooklyn scene, and they will be at the Mercury Lounge on July 28th. - Lilly Milman
