Idgy Dean plays Baza Party on July 26th

Idgy Dean will bring her spirited performance to BAZA Studios on July 26. Combining indie rock, DIY, and psych qualities, songs like “Inauguration” and “Indian Squirrel Dance” possess a very edgy, rough, early 2000's indie rock vibe with an added primal edge introduced by tribal sounding tom toms, performed and sampled live, on stage, by this multi-talented and multi-tasking solo artist. - Pearse Devlin





New Track: "Only One" - Empath

Coming in hot on the heel’s of Empath’s album, Liberating Guilt and Fear, is their new 7” single, titled Environments. Styled in the vein of Irv Teibel’s Environments field recordings from the 1960s and 70s, Empath’s latest track softens the edges of their cleverly raucous repertoire. Each recording on the 7” is meant to represent wind or water; "Only One" takes on the latter, beginning in familiar, playfully punk territory, before opening up into blissful expanses of space as the song develops. The track's creation of and care for space parallels the mission of their label, Get Better Records, which provides a safe space for Philly’s queer community, becoming an important bastion for underrepresented creatives by giving an early platform to diverse bands such as HIRS, Thin Lips, and Cayetana.

Moon Daze release dreamy self-titled debut EP & play The UPTOWN (8.3)

The debut self-titled EP by the San Francisco-based quartet Moon Daze is hot and cold, dousing lyrics like “It’s okay, I didn’t love you anyway,” (from lead single “Leather Jacket”) in the syrupy sweet vocals of Florie Maschmeyer and Carissa Quiambao. The EP retains the surf sensibilities of the Bay Area, as seen in the bouncy “Disco,” but elevates them to a hypnotic dream-like state. Listen to the EP in full below, and see Moon Daze play live on August 3 at The UPTOWN in Oakland. - Lilly Milman, photo by Domini Dragoone





The New Review bring inventive funk-soul to Foam Brewers (8.11)

The New Review, the Boston-based funk-soul eight-piece, are known for bringing an uncontainable energy wherever they go — and their newest single “Portrait of a Man” (streaming below) is no different. With every piece of soul they create turning to gold, it’s no surprise that a video of the band performing the song landed them a spot headlining the Tiny Desk Submissions Showcase hosted by NPR in New York City. The melody of the heavy-hitting track takes it easy in all the right places, ebbing and flowing with an intuitive sense of rhythm only accessible to the very best. The New Review will be performing in New York City at DROM on August 10, and then heading back to New England for a show at Foam Brewers in Burlington, VT on August 11.  - Lilly Milman, photo by Madison McConkey





Same Girls catch lightning in a bottle with instant-hit "Domino," play Café de Nord (7.21)

“You’re just my type, everything’s so nice,” drawls the melodic first line of “Domino” (streaming below), the newest single by Bay Area moody indie rock outfit Same Girls. The rest of the track follows in the same carefree, fuzz-filled style, relying on the punchy guitar riff to build into an explosive chorus. It’s obvious from the first few seconds that Same Girls have ensnared a bolt of lightning in a bottle here, and made an instant hit. If this is any indication of what's to come on their forthcoming album Young Minded, then prepare to add a new favorite album to your list. See them live at Café du Nord on July 21, and then again at the Throwin’ Bo’s showcase at the Elbo Room on August 2. - Lilly Milman, photo by Amy Lombard
