On "Cobwebs," Esbie Fonte's doom-laden folk reveals a darker side of her musical personality

On "Cobwebs," Esbie Fonte finds comfort in the darkness of her psyche. Backed by a trip-hop inspired beat, the singer-songwriter (alongside collaborator Peter Tilley) enchants with her cryptic storytelling over an acoustic chord progression—slathered in a grey-hued atmosphere. But there's also a gothic elegance to her seductive delivery, as she conjures doomy folk with an intensity that never fails to captivate—and continues to keep us guessing with her chameleonic musical personality. 

"Cobwebs" is her second single this year following the release of her debut EP, Cemetery Drive. - Juan Rodríguez

Behavior release tense, throbbing new single "Organic," play Zebulon on 10/19

 If you were to mute Behavior's video for their latest single, "Organic," you could easily assume that it's a corporate travel promotion sponsored by the city of Los Angeles. Except that behind the scenic landscapes and glamour shots, the L.A. trio juxtaposes these images with crippling unease—a disconnect they translate in their minimal, throbbing post-punk. Centered around Evan Burrows' circuitous tom-tom hits, vocalist Bedros Yeretzian sets his disaffected, yet oddly sing-speak against Justin Tenney's tight, rumbling bass.

"Organic" is the third single off of Behavior's forthcoming third LP, Spirits & Embellishments, which comes out on October 18 via Post Present Medium. Before they head out on a West Coast tour, catch them their album release show at Zebulon on October 19. - Juan Rodríguez

Communicant steals the spotlight before summer ends

Dusted with a warm, psych-pop sound, “Spotlight” is born, Communicant's newest release from their upcoming self-titled LP due October 25th. Picture a 1968 vintage mustang driving down the PCH—the windows are down, your best friend is snapping pictures on her disposable, and the waves are crashing as the song blares. That is what I see when I close my eyes and play this song, and if my summer doesn’t end the way it makes me feel, then I don’t want it to (but who does, really?). Just one sip of you and I’m faded too,” sings Dylan Gardner, doing a ravishing job at pulling in his audience with not only captivating lyrics but a music video that will make your toes curl.

Communicant will perform at Moroccan Lounge on October 22. Watch the video for "Spotlight" below. - Kayla Hay
