Pool Boys: Millennial Morse Code

Pool Boys have released their debut single, “Millennial Morse Code”. While Pool Boys have spent most of the past year as a popular opening act, listening to the single it's clear that playing live shows hasn’t been the only thing the band’s been up to. The song is incredibly refreshing. It has notes so clear and smooth listening to the song is akin to drinking a tall glass of ice water. The undertones of the bass intermixed with guitar riffs that strike like lightning give the song a darker edge. It’s clearly a finessed final product, but it still has the earnest heart of a young band looking to make their mark.

You can catch Pool Boys at Bunk Bar November 23rd alongside Kulululu and Sheers

Sam Evian and Kazu Makino collaborate on "You, Forever"

Sam Owens a.k.a. Sam Evian released his latest album “You, Forever” on Saddle Creek Records over the summer.  In 2017, The NYC-based producer and songwriter also co-produced the solo album for Kazu Makino (of Blonde Redhead). Now, the two have joined forces in a re-imagined track entitled “Next To You.” This version is just as billowy and mellow as you might expect coming from the minds of these two musicians. But with help from Kazu’s haunting vocals and a sweeping instrumental section (metronome, violin, and bass), “Next To You” blooms into something more celestial and otherworldly. The song’s central message is short and sweet but tinted with a dreary cynicism about how the world sucks right now.  Makino murmurs, “I can't fight the world’s battles/I just wanna be next to you.” It’s a truly gorgeous track, and you can listen below. - Sara Nuta





New Absinthe Father EP Available for Streaming & Download

We are still recovering from what felt like a long weekend, but not seeming to be long enough this morning. Below is a captivating new EP from Absinthe Father (the solo project of Haley Butters), entitled Jane, which is dedicated to their late grandmother. The album "deals with death/death anxiety, survivor's guilt, & trying to feel okay again." Let the warm, hushed vocals and languid guitar strums help get you where you need to be this chilly fall morning. Butters is getting set to head out on tour with North Carolina's Jail Socks next month, and you can join them this Friday, October 26 at No Face Studios for a Halloween cover show that also features Coping Skills, Ready Now, Future Teens, and Lady Pills.

Weekend Warrior, October 19 - 21

Raw agitation and frustration over societal changes and issues are delivered via intimate narratives, speaking to the individual and lighting a fire to which a community can gather around in union. LP5000, the latest album from Restorations, which was produced by Jonathan Low and released via Tiny Engines, delivers on that mission statement. There’s an ability to dig down deep, expressing the essence of the present problems. However, rather than languishing and lamenting in a state of stagnation, the band encourages a pulse of positivity, driven by a gritty groundswell of post-punk and the potential impact of an oncoming wave in the distance. This Sunday, Restorations steps into the First Unitarian Church, where they’ll be joined by tour & label mates Wild Pink, whose reassuring, airy, singer-songwriter composure strolls with synth and then spikes when called upon. As we await the release of their forthcoming self-titled debut album, the roaring, grunge-punk surge of Fight Amp-Legendary Divorce hybrid, Low Dose, completes this lineup. – Michael Colavita
