Hey, Chels' "Sludge Town, USA" is a white-knuckle ripper

Hey, Chels forge a muscular, guitar-driven ode to classic alternative rock on "Sludge Town, USA." Even the track's nondescript title gives the assumption that it could've come out of anywhere, given how the San Diego band crank up their amps with mounds of blissful, post-shoegaze distortion. But this isn't your everyday revision of a bygone nostalgic era - the four-piece revitalize a timeless sound on their own terms with great conviction. It's a visceral jammer which sends a mighty call with an urgency that is impossible to reproduce. 

"Sludge Town, USA" is the leadoff track off of Hey, Chels' recently-releeased self-titled EP. Juan Rodríguez

Bicoastal duo EXES releases new EP "Before You Go"

In their new EP Before You Go (set for release October 5), bi-coastal duo EXES have expanded their exploratory indie-pop collection. The physical distance between these artists is certainly not palpable in this collection of cohesive, neatly produced tracks. Integrating snapshots of recent thoughts and experiences into their new work, EXES has merged their characteristic mellow pop with a noticeably more candid lyrical approach, showcasing the growth of this duo both musically as well as personally.  The duo's sound is driven by the soft, melodic vocals of Brooklyn-based singer Allie McDonald and the edgy electronic beats of LA-based producer Mike Derenzo, resulting in a soulful interpretation of clean electronica. Single “Before you Break” explores a playful staccato vocal style that, combined with a slow-burning drum track and layers of subtle ambiance, reveals the meticulous production elements of their recent work. Many of their new songs contain very visual and often experience-based lyrics. “Peckham” vividly evaluates abstract subjects such as romance, hopes and fears, showcasing this band’s equal consideration of both sound and substance. You can stream EXES’ Before You Go in full right now via Live Nation’s Ones To Watch, and be sure to keep an eye out for the official release this Friday. -Rebecca Carroll





Rainstorm Brother releases expansive new single "If I Were the Smoke," perform at The Hotel Café on 10/9

John Isaac Watters keeps his eccentricities at a grounded state in "If I Were the Smoke." An introspective look into a debilitated relationship, Watters - who goes by Rainstorm Brother with producer Tyler Chester - explores the reasons why Watters keeps himself at arm's length from someone he loves. The balladeer's gruff, yet dextrous vocal delivery, which reminds me of a younger Tim Buckley, usurps his poetic sensibilities while a murky undercurrent of modular electronics and discordant chamber arrangements spread a tenebrous ambiance. Stepping away from his former solo project, his more experimental leanings once again exalt the vast possibilities of folk music. 

"If I Were the Smoke" is featured of Rainstorm Brothers' forthcoming EP, Pt. 1, which is out on November 9. Catch them perform at The Hotel Café on October 9. Juan Rodríguez
