Daise to play The Resident on 1/23

Indie rock band Daise craft intricate and faintly dreamy songs, countered with sunny harmonies and ringing percussion that are constantly in motion. The San Bernardino quartet sure know their way around a pop melody, and they put it to full effect on their recently released EP, Bewilder, which plays with the more amiable side of post-punk, with their noodling guitars and breezy rhythmic tones, and mixes it with some pan-ethnic flourishes. Fans of genre-bending groups like Yeasayer and Local Natives will find much to enjoy, as their catchy and thoughtful songwriting is as immediate as it is considered.

Daise will showcase their tuneful songs at The Resident on January 23th.

Halo Orbit release spacey new track "Trieste", debut album out 2/3

There's a profound sense of drift on "Trieste", Halo Orbit's enigmatic new track, a nine minute textural voyage that ultimately leaves more questions than answers once it ends. The ambient instrumental begins with steady restraint, slowly intensifying its backdrop of modular sounds with shuffled percussion patterns coming from all directions. Once it hits the six minute mark it finally builds, but not in the way you'd expect, briefly doing so until it gradually subsides into a gentle ripple, ultimately circling back to where it started. It's a daringly ambitious move for the veteran trio, who've in the past worked in bands like The Mars Volta, Buffalo Daugher and even the late David Bowie.

Halo Orbit, who see a home in Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo, are releasing their self-titled debut album on February 3rd via local imprint Alpha Pup. They'll be making their live debut appearance at Low End Theory on February 15 before hitting the road in support of it.

Stream: Ali Burress, "This Is Where"

There are only so many words in the English language to describe something beautiful. Alluring, elegant, divine, bewitching, sublime, but Ali Burress has somehow exhausted my vocabulary with her spellbinding music. Paul Ekman, a pioneer in psychology, researched different cultures and discovered that humans all have 6 basic facial emotions, and it is safe to say that I experienced all 6 while listening to “This Is Where”. The San Diego singer-songwriter's raw emotion bleeds through her lyrics, and the unique intermix of instruments creates an atmospheric sense of vulnerability. Her music is satisfying, scratching the itch of the unknown. “This Is Where” truly is about where we belong: sometimes we don’t always know, but Burress can help you get there.

Burress’s newest EP, Dwell, will be released February 3rd through Spirit House Records. - Kayla Hay
