Lo-fi Psych project June Bloom release debut EP "Bloomin'"

Boston based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Carr has embarked on a psychedelic solo venture called June Bloom. Carr, a keyboardist and vocalist for the eight-piece funk/soul group The New Review and jangle-pop rockers Brother Toaster, has channeled his fondness of lo-fi dream-pop, psychedelic, and folk music into the delightfully aloof debut EP entitled Bloomin’.

The EP’s jaunty opening track “Ponds” combines the airy charm of a Real Estate guitar riff with the meaty substance of a Fleet Foxes arrangement, while “Shores” roots its traditionally psych songwriting in Ariel Pink’s production chambers. Fans of left-of-the-dial records, from classics like The Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle or Syd Barrett’s The Madcap Laughs, to the contemporary torch bearers Kevin Parker and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, will be sure to take something great from June Bloom’s Bloomin’. -Charley Ruddell 

 





New Open City Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Post-hardcore supergroup Open City, which is made up singer/lyricist Rachel Rubino (Worriers, Bridge and Tunnel), bassist Andy Nelson (Dark Blue, Paint It Black, Ceremony), guitarist Dan Yemin (Paint It Black, Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, Armalite), and drummer Chris Wilson (Ted Leo & the Pharmacists), just released a new, limited 7" vinyl. The four-piece has teamed up with producer extraordinaire Will Yip (Studio 4) once again for the follow-up to the group's debut self-titled LP, which was released at the beginning of this year. The band also shared that the “City of Ash” b/w “A Condition Worth a Mention” single “has been in the works for a long time, but as it would turn out, in the meantime the world has done us the courtesy of entirely falling apart around us so that these tunes function as an even more fitting soundtrack to the oncoming apocalypse.” 





Brother Roy releases piano soul-rock debut LP "Last Man Standing"

With a gruff voice that delivers storybook lyrics in the spirit of James Taylor and heavy piano-based arrangements that smack of Seventies songwriting greats like Elton or Billy, Brother Roy unleashes his debut LP Last Man Standing. Filled with soul and inspired by jazz and classical composers, the tracks on the album flow from driving rockers such as "Heartbreaker" to orchestral crooners such as "Sunshine Lady". Brother Roy has already released a few music videos from Last Man Standing, the latest being a B-movie clipshow set to the head-bopper "Brother Sam." Check it out below and don't miss the record release "extravaganza" at Rockwood Music Hall on December 10th. - Will Sisskind





New A.M. Mills EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

We hope that you had a chance to enjoy your Thanksgiving vacation. And though, like us, you might not be quite ready to start the workweek, we do have some new tunes from A.M. Mills to help ease you back into reality. Led by the gentle croons of Drew Mills (formerly of Blood Feathers), you can now listen to the surprise six-song EP, Window Box, that was recently dropped by the band for your listening pleasure. Let the languid instrumentals wash over you in this AM, and catch Mills and the gang, performing next in Philly, on December 16 at Bourbon & Branch. (Photo by Serge Levin)





Star Club bring a true "Nightmare" to life

Back when the weather and spirits alike were a bit brighter, we shared the first music video from art-wavers Star Club called "Saturday Night," along with a deeper look into the makes of the band and their late summer album Sixth Avenue Motel. We're now pleased to share the latest to come from the album, a music video for the smoothly loungy track "Nightmare."

Monochrome and wonderfully shot, the video for "Nightmare" creatively evokes the horror of how nightmares can feel so much like reality. In it, vocalist/guitarist Nate Lown is somewhat the cool, cornfield narrator hanging back as bassist Marcus Pizotchi is kidnapped and taken to a desolate location where some procedures are performed on him. If you've ever dreamt of some sort of Taken-meets-Saw situation the thought of this actually happening is terrifying, but at least Star Club make it look moody and cool.

See Star Club perform "Nightmare" and other songs off of Sixth Avenue Motel tomorrow headlining the Turn Turn Turn with a debut set from Martha Stax (members of Star Club, Rare Diagram, Ancient Elk and more), Wave Action and Oort. Also, send some birthday love to Pizotchi.
