See Shannon Entropy Perform Their Debut Live Tonight

 Shannon Entropy popped up on our radar months ago after we fell hard for their Tamale EP. The way the band, consisting of Libby and Jesse Hamlin (guitars, vox), David Hickey (keys, vox), Roman Buermann (bass) and Kevin Wilbanks (drums), mingled elements of math rock, psych and shoegaze on their EP made their sound easily addicting, but their official debut takes their mastery to a whole other level.

Out There Ideas dropped on 6.16 and is the summation of years of songwriting and refinery, building up on a foundation of tracks from deep within the Hamlins' arsenal. A brooding dejection that flows through the album, from the orchestral string intro that opens the album, to dark rock tracks like "VVitches" and album closer "The Ballad of Mustin Park," with Hickey's vocals echoing a tender croon along with it. 

The band will be joined by art pop of Sheers, Mood Beach's synthy grooves and some indie-psych from The Wild War as part of their album release show tonight at Holocene. What better way to spend a hot evening than by chilling out with a bill of great acts. Stream the album to become even more acquainted with the Out There Ideas tracks before the show.





Debut Noise and Silence EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The pairing of Matt Fleming and Bob Hunter, a.k.a. Noise and Silence, released their debut EP Cycle Theory, via Exotic Fever, today. Reserved contemplation with cold-glowing, inferno-blooming, blue flames, the album serves as a calming presence, which can quickly shift into engulfing, shoegazing heaviness. The duo builds anticipatory dynamics, laying low and gradually elevating the ante, until the switch flips.





Debut Eliza Edens EP Available for Streaming & Download

Retreat into the solace of nature via Lowlight, the new EP from folk songstress Eliza Edens. Its starter “Matrices” offers a nod and a wink to the Joni Mitchell gem “Woodstock,” preparing one for the musical passage to come. Swept up in feathery, bright, buoyant instrumentation, well-crafted songwriting/melody flourishes. With all proceeds being donated to Planned Parenthood, this collection benefits one’s ears and a good cause simultaneously. (Photo by Grace Clark)





Maurice and the Stiff Sisters Thank the Fans

Gratitude is essentially a virtue. It used to be the norm for bands and solo musicians to have a particular hubris about them-a cocky air craving the praise of their fans for oftentimes no reason at all. Thankfully artists aren't as much like that anymore. Power pop quintet Maurice and the Stiff Sisters show this, demonstrating how farther a good relationship with the audience can take you in addition to talent.

The group hasn't been around for very long. In about a year's time since they've been a band they've already played to masses of people, like at the Kenton Street Fair, as well as to pretty varying crowds like patrons of the southeast country bar Landmark Saloon. Maurice and the Stiff Sisters have a type of accessible sound that's easy for all crowds to enjoy. Their power pop is not only delightfully catchy, but also mixes in romantic soulful notes that make them even more lovable. 

Seeing Maurice and the Stiff Sisters is just as enjoyable as listening to them, which in part helped them become one of our June artists of the month. You can catch their next set at the end of July for an ACLU benefit at Dig A Pony, along with Bubblecats and Snowblind Traveler. Until then, enjoy their performance video for "Our Old Haunts" and an adoring acceptance video for their win.





New Haunted Homes EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Haunted Homes just released an EP whose title eerily ushers in the summer. Produced by Uniform Recording's Jeff Zeigler, Séance At The Shore echoes surf-rock optimism, with a foreboding undertow. Despite the murky pretense of alluring keys, one is drawn toward the humid haze. The quintet, along with American Trappist,  are penciled in to support Madalean Gauze’s record release show on Friday, July 21 at Johnny Brenda’s.
