Oh Malô bring their soulful and dreamy sound to Great Scott on 8/26

A book review of one of Murukami's novels once said his work was influenced by so many writers it ended up being incredibly original. There's some truth to that description, and it might just apply to Boston band Oh Malô as well. They have sound that's very difficult to pin the tail on, but perhaps taking an index of the components and parts would help. On their latest LP, As We Were their guitars are deeply atmospheric with a light psych feel. The vocals are deeply soulful, and wouldn't feel out of place on any RnB track. The rhythm section, though, is downright muscular, emboldening the sound with an alt or even prog-rock flavor.  The easiest comparison to make would be to Local Natives, but that doesn't help much either, considering they to deftly evade most categorization also. Suffice to say, Oh Malô make quality music that sounds familiar and fresh all at once. You can see them live at Great Scott on 8/26. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Videos: "Mudmouth" & "Domingo" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - Mumblr

Mumblr recently spent some time with the folks from Out of Town Films at their Berks Warehouse HQ. The two resulting performance videos for “Mudmouth” and “Domingo” - both of which are featured on band’s latest release The Never Ending Get Down (Fleeting Youth Records) - display an alluring fragile yet volatile dynamic. “Mudmouth” gently wades in, before the gushing instrumental stream is opened, while “Domingo” immediately brews an ambiance of expansive, entrenching heaviness.





Shana Falana prepares for release of sophomore album + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

After perfecting their nuanced sound via touring and single releases, the shoegaze duo, Shana Falana, impressed critics with a 2015 debut LP titled Set Your Lightning Fire Free. Follow-up album, Here Comes the Wave is scheduled for a fall release later this year. The band's sound hits all the right sensory marks dealing in positive wonderment and a sense of discovery. Vocals, as sung by singer/guitarist Shana, soar over chiming guitars and tom-tom drums, all of which keep pace with affected, drone-y guitars.

New Track: "Come True" - Suburban Living

A winding labyrinth of keys/synth twists before being broken threw by the steady percussive punch in the opening of Suburban Living’s new single “Come True”. The song will be featured on their upcoming album Almost Paradise, scheduled for release on October 7 via 6131 Records. “Come True” embraces a multidimensional approach, as the pleasant constant movement is countered by the somewhat secretively delivered vocals, sticking in a personal, pacifying manner.

Vomitface celebrates debut album release at Alphaville on 8.28

Vomitface formed shortly after Hurricane Sandy when two of its members found themselves trapped in their home writing songs about their depressing surroundings, and released two EPs in 2014 and 2015. Evoking the sounds of Nirvana and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the lead single off their upcoming album “Senior Pictures” is a sludgy grungy track that features crunchy spastic guitars over a steady rhythm section. Front-man Jared Micah delivers lines like “I like the subtle way you roll your eyes” in a deadpan tone before erupting into a raw and gritty scream during the song's final seconds. The trio recently released a music video for the song directed by Jimmy Fontaine and Nick Bilardello. It depicts the group rocking out in a gritty warehouse setting and on the rooftop of a New York City building, through uneven camera movements that match their angsty brand of rock. Vomitface’s debut full length Hooray For Me will be released on August 26th via Help Yourself Records, and they will be celebrating its release on August 28th at Alphaville in Brooklyn!
