Big Surr brings their fuzzy "beach-pop" to Charlie Bob's 10/30

We're exactly a month into Fall and faced with those chilly Autumn nights, it's really easy to get idealistic about summer--warm sand, boardwalk popsicles, and top-down car rides are starting to feel more and more like functions of the past.  Big Surr, with all their beach-poppy swagger, surf beats, and fuzzy guitar licks, feel like summer but lack those rose-colored glasses we tend to don everytime cold weather rolls around. This is summer, pit stains and all, where the skin that's not covered by your shorts ends up sticking to your car seat. But this is what we love about Big Surr: there's a real rawness in the music created by their intersection of jangly guitar voicings and lackadaisical vocals. Baked + Bruised, the band's 3-track EP, is a good example of this and throughout the album the band manages to create infectiously catchy melodies, all while maintaining their lo-fi allure. You can check out Big Surr playing live at Charlie Bob's on 10.30, but be sure to stream them below in the meantime.-Olivia Sisinni

Mackinac's album title track delivers a multiplex sonic mixture, assembling juicy synth pads, airy vocal harmonies, a rhythmic backdrop that adjusts in energy from section to section, and the crisp, and Steven's clear vocals. Listen to "What You Don't Need" down below, as well as the album title track for Burn, and catch Steven live at Acme Feed & Seed on October 21st. -Ashley Muniz

Cereus Bright's heartfelt video for Silver Lining after tragedy

After finishing up a tour across the states with Ages and Ages, promoting their debut album Excuses, Nashville's uplifting folk-pop five-piece band Cereus Bright found their rehearsal room and home burnt down and destroyed. In the midst of this dreadfully dark circumstance, Cereus Bright filmed a video performing the track Silver Lining in their once beautiful space, thanking everyone for their support and showing us what hope, modesty, and courage really looks like. Listening to "Silver Lining", one can't help but feel an overwhelming strength in the group's sweet, soothing vocals, as well as a passionate perserverence in each delicate pluck of a string. Watch the heartfelt video down below and get a dose of inspiration. - Ashley Muniz

Hellaphant bring high-energy punk to the International 10/29

With most tracks clocking in at the under 2 minute mark, Knoxville-based Hellaphant is proof that good things come in small pachyderms packages. The band plays high-energy, garagey punk, perfect for your parents-out-of-town party, or the next time you're vandalizing something. Check them out live at the International 10/29 with *repeat repeat and Mountains Like Wax, and in the meantime stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni
