Listen to Manuel the Band's slick, intricate new single "Breathe," play Basement Tavern on 6/29

On their new single, "Breathe," Manuel the Band counterbalance their slick, indie-rock sound with tuneful, intricate glides. The Long Beach quintet let a mellow, bass-driven melody guide their groove, gradually intensifying into a big, horn-driven finish. Vocalist Manuel Grajeda sings with passionate fervor over a gentle background harmony, transformed by the intimacy of physical contact.   

"Breathe" is the latest single off Manuel the Band's forthcoming debut full-length, Room for Complication. Catch them at Basement Tavern in Santa Monica on June 29, as well as in various venues surrounding the Long Beach area throughout July. - Juan Rodríguez

Plastic Picnic's "After You" is a Nostalgic Wave, plays Market Hotel 7.18

Much like the ebb and flow of the ocean informing its seemingly René Margritte-inspired album artwork, single “After You” gently washes over the listener, soaking them in the vintage atmospheric sound of New York synth pop outfit Plastic Picnic. The first single from their forthcoming sophomore EP Vistalite, “After You” makes no effort to deny its '80s inspiration, but channels the timeless theme of fearing change into its delicate vocal line. Simultaneously, it never barrages you with a nostalgic sound, applying a modern perspective by scaling back instrumentation carefully over the course of four minutes, presenting a sonic output that is well-tempered and rich, but never overwhelming. It promises a dreamy performance at Market Hotel on July 18th for the band’s record release show, supported by Toldeo, Hypoluxo, and Pecas. Stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney
