Skull Practitioners
""st1 (tape)"
"
mp3

Where the genre of “psych rock” will usually refer to “psychedelic rock,” Skull Practitioners take it to a level where the meaning “psychosis rock” would be more appropriate, hurling harsh guitar tones and thumping bass haunts, along with an avalanche of drum fills, into a whirlwind of amplified delirium. The NYC trio produces a heavier and more diverse wall of sound than most five-piece bands out there, swelling and punching up and down scales and arpeggios, blasting through fuzz and decay, resulting in a bleakly intense look into a mind lost. With different vocalists featured on various tracks, it might be difficult to discern an established frontman, but does it matter? The sounds coming from Jason Victor and Ken Levine’s amps, back Alex Baker’s drums are the huge focus here. – JP Basileo

Haki

Haki is fronted by the talented Kelsey Ashby. On their latest release, Positive, her vocals range from rhythmic screaming to hushed crooning. Through out the album she shows incredible range and energy. The band's sound ranges from thrash metal to punk to doom and never really lets up. They are destruction and beauty rolled up into a young explosive package.

You can catch Haki at Ebenezer Lutheran Church on August 6th with Evasive Backflip, Fake Limbs, Crude Humor, and Unabomber.

Cougar Island

Cougar Island recently released their new album Conjugal Visits. Below is the first single from the album, "Much Too Loud".

You can catch Cougar Island @ Schubas on August 4th.

10,000 Light Years

10,000 Light Years are currently recording the follow-up to their 2013 release "Haunted House". Last month the band released a demo version of a rocking new track called "End of The World" with new lead singer Ally Subak.

You can catch 10,000 Light Years at Township on Thursday July 31st with Videotape and IL Tandre Neu for just $5.

Modern Vices

Modern Vices is lead by the energetic and compelling voice of Alex Rebek. Their self-titled debut album will be released by Autumn Tone (home to like-minded Twin Peaks and The Orwells) on October 7th. They recently released their first single "Cheap Style". Their sound strikes a charming balance between garage pop, late ’50s croon, The Smiths, and The Drum. High praise, sure, but Modern Vices is already proving they can deliver.

You can catch Modern Vices at Subt on August 3rd with Zoo Brother, Twin Cabins, and Sister Savage and at The Burlington on August 15th with Heavy Times and Dead Gaze.
