July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Stream: Snoh, "Bad Things" featuring Common

After listening to Snoh Aalegra's sultry voice, I took away a version of the song that changed how I heard it. ”I’m in a nightmare having a dream…I find good things in bad versions of me.” Collecting all the images of self-doubt I have of myself, her latest track "Bad Things" put them away in the back of my mind while making me realize that the bad things I find within myself just make up who I am. Of course, the way Aalegra chooses to portray her imagery of it is noticeably more spellbinding and more pleasurable on the ears. Alas, Producer Rich ‘No I.D.’ Daily laid out the tracks to this single, mixing R&B and soul with hip hop to create a blended rendition of what sounds like the daughter of Alicia Keys and Kat Dahlia. Aalegra is due to be signed with Sony later next year, and with that in her future, there really is no stopping this bombshell. - Kayla Hay

Green Gerry Play the Bootleg on 10.29

Athens, Georgia native, LA-based Green Gerry first began as the bedroom project of Gerry Green. Gerry oversaw the entire project by himself until he assembled a group after the release of his second album, King Baby. His translucent lo-fi has since captured the attention of major indie label Mom + Pop, who approached Gerry to re-record one of the tracks off that album under their offshoot singles label Mermaid Ave. Since then, Gerry has recorded a second single, "Mumbo Jumbo", a slack psychedelic track that displays Gerry's pop sensibilities whilst honing in some slightly warped guitar work. 

You can catch Green Gerry at the Bootleg tomorrow, October 29th as part of the monthly Blind Date new music series.

Video: Magic Bronson, "Fences"

Michael Nicastro and Matthew Lieberman, the genre ambiguous duo known as Magic Bronson, are releasing their first full length album, Wildlife, on November 4th. The album, a follow up to their May 2013 EP, Nor'easter, is filled with the band's fresh mix of hip hop and indie rock. "Fences", the lead single off Wildlife, is a heartfelt homage to family. The corresponding video is comprised of sunny shots of their LA lives and vintage family moments. With lines like, "So take a look around you, these people founded you", "Fences" is not only an intimate portrayal of Nicastro and Lieberman's lives, but also an invitation to re-examine our own. - Jennifer Mergott

The Luxembourg Signal Releases Debut Album When You Motor Away

The Luxembourg Signal is something of a new beginning for its band members, since three thirds of the band was part of Sarah Records signees Aberdeen. There's a legacy attached to their name, but this latest project is anything but - though their stylized, danceable indie pop holds many parallels to the former, the tracks off their latest full-length, When You Motor Away, are thoughtfully crafted and hold a distinctive musical identity all on its own. This, of course, is a sign of experience, a band who retains their youthful innocence in their shimmering mid-tempo chuggers whilst demonstrating their knack for soaring, dreamlike melodies. When You Motor Away is out now via Shelflife Records.
