02.08: Americana artist Pi Jacobs releases new album at Hotel Cafe

Americana artist Pi Jacobs returns with her new album Two Truths and a Lie, which she'll release at a show at Hotel Cafe on February 8th. Inspired by the theme to the show Justified, Jacobs' new album blends percussive elements and hip-hop infused beats into her rootsy rock rhythms and melodies. Jacobs wrote Two Truths and a Lie as an homage to women who have fought injustice and oppression throughout history; however, in the writing process, she found some stories about herself had blended into the mix. The album drops everywhere on February 21st, but a music video for the track "Rearview" -- a song about survival -- is available for you to view now. - Will Sisskind


Dog Park sniffs success with debut record "Scotty"

Unorthodox as can be, the music of Maine collective Dog Park is a ride into the sublime unknown. The group’s debut full-length record Scotty is a playground of short but meaty sonic treats that range from gruff garage rock to full-blown noise rock: tracks like “Red Cabbage” are tastefully rhythmic with their lo-fi coating while songs like “Walter” are gooey in pace with lead basslines to savor. The record’s lead single “Zebra” slithers along with its industrial-psychedelic influences, contorting into a noise rock brevity that you cannot help play again. The group jams it out in the album’s final track “Horsey,” and the euphoria that surely sparked this record is exposed with gusto. Since not a single track makes it past the two-minute mark, this album is a bag of treats for the feral (or adorable) dog in you. Sit! And stream the record below. - Rene Cobar

The Ehems bask in fuzz on "Eh Eh Hem," play Berlin 2.6

New York trio the Ehems carefully thread the needle between indie and garage on “Eh Eh Hem,” gleefully demonstrating their love of fuzz and Kodak film in the track’s visual component. Beginning on a gainful riff and concluding with a vague, repeating mantra that continues throughout the song’s two and a half minute runtime, the three person outfit drive and groove, leaving room for muted, overdriven instrumental segues. No bells and whistles to be found, their focus on creating energetic rock highlights the band’s desire to embody the city’s history of fervent, guitar-centric music, as evidenced by their recently released VHS live-show compilation. Give it a spin below, and head out to Berlin on February 6th for their first show of the new decade.
