New Video: "Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind" (Live - Stereogum Sessions) - Modern Baseball

Recorded at Lollapalooza, this Stereogum Sessions perfermance has Brendan Lukens and Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball playing a stripped-down take of “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind,” found on the band’s latest album Holy Ghost, which is available via Run For Cover. The instrumental simplicity enhances the aesthetic of intimacy, highlighting the deep, personal lyrical nature. Those expressions of hope and doubt intermingle, as one feels close like a member of the crowd.





CVS at Night debuts psych-laced indie pop EP

CVS at Night delivers music for moonlit escapades, and the bleary eyed wonder-ers up past their bedtime. The Brooklyn indie rock quartet's self-titled EP combines catchy hooks and soft dance-able beats with a warm, lo-fi psych tint that seems to point toward insidious emotions that lie beneath simple words and poppy melodies. The quartet's debut, self-titled EP is as bewtiching as it is absorbing, so be sure to check out the newly released tracks here (with a promise of more to come!), or listen below. - Olivia Sisinni





New Self-released Restorations Single Available for Streaming & Purchase

Restorations have a manner of creating multifaceted songs that dig their heels in a personal manner and then branch outward. The group has self-released a new single “See/Sea,” produced by Jonathan Low. The songs continue in that literary, resounding lyrical tradition, booming into Americana-flavored rockin' anthems. Restorations plan to continue on releasing in this manner for the near future so make sure to pay it forward. Catch them live at The Foundry on Thursday, August 18 for the Red Bull Sound Select showcase with Thrills and Mumblr!





Folk songwriter Alana Amram plays Union Pool on August 4th

Alana Amram's songs could belong to a different era. Wielding a vocal authority that feels very Patti Smith, Amram deftly crafts narrative lyrics that paint images ranging from pastoral to wild - but always a far cry from the brick and bustle of Brooklyn where the songwriter currently resides. The sound is Americana by way of late 60's psych-tinged folk, and is ever-present on her spellbinding 2014 release Spring River. Catch her at Union Pool on August 4th or headlining at the Cake Shop with Ian O'neill of Deertick, Reservations, and Heaven's Jail on August 31st, and be sure to listen to the track below. - Olivia Sisinni

Folk rock songwriter Nadia Kazmi plays Baby's All Right on 8/8

On her third release, LAMB, New York songwriter, Nadia Kazmi shows an enviable range of genres, moods, and influences.  Opener “Kill the Monster” adopts angsty blues and punk elements, with results reminiscent of a Karen O with Janis Joplin's melodic tendencies.  The rest of the album, starting with second track Lamb in Wolf's Clothing, takes a narrative turn, as it displays more folk rock leanings with a vocal cadence reminiscent of Bob Dylan, and various other '60 influences.  “Haunting” proceeds to evoke The Doors and as the album progresses, the songstress continues to release intense energy and something akin to inner turmoil that manages to pull us in.  For what is guaranteed to be a lively show, check her out at Baby’s All Right on August 8th. - Madeleine Grossman
