Henry Hall unveils video for "Dream Lover" + plays Hotel Cafe on 10.14

Here's a video that will send you mixed messages (upliftingly cringeworthy?) by NYC/LA based artist Henry Hall for new single "Dream Lover". It starts off with the artist standing in front of a green screen, gazing into the camera with sympathetic eyes, and singing amidst an escalating rhythmic groove defined by a tight, punchy beat and brisk guitar strums... until the words "I'm in love with my girlfriend's sister" are uttered, after which Henry breaks out a goofy smile, and begins to dance, his body overimposed on a montage of vintage movies. It is dark, but it's quite humorous as well. Check it out down below, catch him live at LA's The Hotel Cafe on October 14, and stay tuned if you want more, there's an EP underway! - Ashley Muniz

Miniature Tigers return with single 'Dreaming' - new LP out on 10.22

We always have a special place in our heart for the bands that were rewarded with the NYC Record of the Month, and Miniature Tigers (a band currently split between NYC, LA and Arizona) is one of them. The quirky synth pop quartet just unveiled this new single entitled 'Dreaming,' from their upcoming full length 'I Dreamt I Was A Cowboy,' due out October 28th. We are glad to report that the quirkiness hasn't abandoned them, but was actually taken to the next level, with a track that incorporates elements of 8 bit music, ondulating analog synths, and fluid melodies that contrast with the angular nature of the arrangement. If this is a dream, it's of the bizarre variety. The band will be in NYC at Sunnyvale on December 22nd.

The Deli LA Premieres: Big Sis, "Way Back"

Big Sis is the new project of Nathan Paris-Hernandez, a songwriter who's assembled a loose collective of musicians that include members of other well known local acts like L.A. Witch and Pastilla. On their latest single, "Way Back", the band exhibits a more robust and nuanced version of melody, noise and rock that resonates with a nonchalant, yet rough-around-the edges beauty. But there's also some intricately knotty guitars in display, honing in a slackened mood with its loungy grooves and psychedelia undertones.

"Way Back" is featured on Big Sis' upcoming self-titled effort, which will be out digitally and on cassette via ¡DAME! on October 21. You can catch them at Redwood Bar & Grill tomorrow, October 6, alongside Globelamp and Pipe Dreams. The band is also playing a record release show at ¡DAME! Studio on the day of its release. - Juan Rodríguez

Stream: Katie Gately, "Lift"

The haunting discord of Katie Gately’s new single, “Lift”, has everyone up in arms. With over 400 different layers, this ex sound producer for film has created an aesthetic ode to her own childhood that everyone can relate too. Gately mentions in an interview with Complete Music Update that her favorite childhood sounds were ‘fireworks, high-pitched screams, claps, smacks and stomps’, noises I am sure we all can relate to and remember. So soak in the nostalgic sound of an eccentric childhood dream in Gately’s Colors come October 14th. Your memories will be glad you did. - Kayla Hay
