Debut MESH Demos Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sims Hardin (Dark Web, JUICE, Brain Clouds, Throbbing Chakra) has a new musical outlet called MESH, and recently shared a trio of demos. Lo-fi, heady, garage-punk vibes permeate throughout the recordings, with its intimacy hinting at a slacker-rock mentality. "Work sucks. People suck. Life sucks. Fuck it - I'm just gonna jam on this guitar." MESH is slated to perform at Free Candy on Thursday, October 10, as part of a lineup that also includes Soft Crime (the latest project from Spacin's Jason Killinger), Thigh Master, and Michael Beach.





No Vacation’s Phasing out October 18

Oh yes, a little sweet bossa-vibbed beach pop tune is just what we were looking to find. What a delight! Single “Estrangers” (Topshelf Records) is a perfect little taste off No Vacation's forthcoming EP, Phasing. We know No Vacation as their former San Francisco selves, who released Amo Xo and Summer Break mixtapes back in 2015. And we know they’ve since relocated to Brooklyn, rebranded as No Vacation, and certain songs have busted out millions of listens (“Yam Yam” is a jam worth checking), but hey we’re still holding onto a tad of our Bay Area claim to these purities. Stay tuned for upcoming shows and that sweet new EP. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





VANDANA releases new record “Contra,” plays Baby's All Right on 9/22

Expanding on a noir electro-pop sound already steeped in eastern influences, VANDANA's latest release Contra re-imagines Indian and Pakistani music from the 70's, 80's and 90s. Lead track “Ahsa” intrigues with a heartbeat synth-bass pulse and foreboding keyboard textures. The artist's deep and resonant vocals soon become the focus, singing in a native language that adds an extra element of mystery. Careful percussive and electronic keyboard elements make their way into the mix completing an overall mystical experience. Follow-up track “Ahsila” makes use of slow-building atmospherics, deep bass synths and light bubbling textures in between seductively enigmatic vocals. Five tracks in all, the record can be heard and acquired at the artists bandcamp. VANDANA will be playing a daytime event Benefit for Kashmir at Baby's All Right on 9/22. - Dave Cromwell





New Queen Jesus Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Dedicated to Spenser Spirit Hogans, Queen Jesus recently shared a new album, titled Glass Hat, which is available on cassette via Stereophonodon Records. Coasting along in a melodic jangle, with an underlying, unpredictable edge, the record seeps into one’s system in a peaceful, low-key yet well-honed manner. Sink into the shadows of the harmonious haze.





Watch: The Addition debuts music video for gritty track "In Between"

Some argue that grunge music’s meteoric rise led to its eventual fantastic-flaming disintegration from general consciousness toward the end of the ‘90s; should we go with that argument, then finding its scattered fragments is a rare and beautiful experience indeed: enter Boston’s The Addition. The group’s new music video for its gritty single “In Between” is a grainy black and white dance of pale silhouettes surrendering to growling electric guitars and punchy drums. From pain-stricken vocals to quaking basslines, the group brings it all together for breakdowns that display grunge’s still-smoldering appeal. The Addition has done an excellent job of stoking curiosity for its next move with a song and video that displays the band most naturally. We are streaming the group’s new music video below for your enjoyment; careful, it is hot. - Rene Cobar
