A Deli premiere: The Echo Friendly - "Surveying the Damage" - LP Release Party at Rough Trade on 12.10

The Echo Friendly's 2014 debut LP Love Panic was a rather mellow indie pop-rock record filled with timeless melodies and moody atmospheres. The duo today is releasing the long awaited sophomore LP, called Surveying The Damage, and its first single is a testament to rising above anxiety called "Power Through". In keeping with that theme, the timely title track (premiered below) navigates breaking through feelings of insecurity in a hostile world, while revealing a sound that's faster and rawer - a clue confirmed by the other single available for streaming. You can hear The Echo Friendly play both singles from the album and more during their record release show at Rough Trade on December 10th. - Will Sisskind





From OhMyRockness: New Jersey's Fire is Motion

Our friends at OhMyRockness introduced us to the lovely music of New Jersey's Fire is Motion, the brainchild of Adrian Amedor - we'll let them do the intros:

"I have not researched this (because I'm a music blobber) but Fire is Motion has to be named after that Cap'n Jazz song that goes like this.

Fire is motion! Work is repetition! This is my document. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all defenses. Fire is motion is motion growth?

God, I love that song.

Anyway, Fire is Motion doesn't sound like Cap'n Jazz at all (except for a few nice math rock noodles here and there). Sorry for the red herring there. My bad. My blob.

So what does this New Jersey band (the work of one man, Adrian Amador, and his pals) sound like then?

That's a great question! Blast this lovely EP below and find out!

Please note: there will be glockenspiels / horns / harmonies / builds / plenty of pretty parts"





Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue plays C'mon Everybody 12.07, releases debut EP in January

Those partial to the slow-jam sounds of The Weather Channel's past and layered vocal harmonies a la Freddie will find solace in the music of Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue, the newest project of Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn, formerly of Ghost Beach. Mendelsohn's brought his funk to tour with bands like Imagine Dragons and Walk The Moon; now, he's landed it in the studio, where he forged Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue's eponymous debut EP, out on January 5th. To promote the record, the Revue will play C'mon Everybody on Thursday 12/7 along with Sam O B and Pilot Violet. For a taste of their salacious sound, check out the groovy first single "I Stand Corrected", below. - Will Sisskind





Synthpop duo Tmboy (ex Tomboy) returns to Mercury on 01.12

Tmboy (ex Tomboy) is the electronic duo of Sarah Aument and Will Shore and their music should tickle the curiosity of fans of Sylvan Esso. While Sarah paints rolling hills of stars with her keyboard stacks, Will mans the beat machine while also filling out the sound on a real vibraphone. Soulful and genuine, Sarah's vocals are reminiscent of an intriguing blend of Chvrches and Bjork, with lyrics way above the average for what sounds like moody party music. 

Their next show is a late night party at Mercury Lounge, starting at midnight on Friday, January 12th. Also performing: Novelty Daughter, Akki, No Intimate, R.E.L. Check out tense and edgy single "Roll Out" from their 2014 debut LP "Tomboy." -  Meghan Rose





BUZZ ALERT! Indie artist Roxiny drops new video for song "Lights"

We're going to go ahead and call it, NYC-based artist Roxiny is one to watch. With powerful but tempered vocals, Roxiny produces haunting, poignant music that is at times reminiscent of Reflektor-era Arcade Fire, but with some serious teeth.  The indie musician recently released a new video for her single "Lights," a song that opens with subtle synths-as-sirens, and was written in response to the Chelsea Bombing . Shot in black and white, the clip showcases NYC as told by Roxiny--highlighting abandoned buildings and small laundromats, and celebrating the way her message penetrates the city in a fierce, grassroots way. Check out the video for "Lights" streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni
