New Track: "Illusionist" - Dreamswell

"Doomgaze" outfit Dreamswell is fronted by Gina Piccari (vox/guitar), who is backed by Deli favorites Candice Martello (Hemming, ex-Omar) on guitar and Madalean Gauze on bass, with Jon Martello on drums. The group recently shared "Illusionist," its latest sirens' call from Hades. It's a slow-burning yet hauntingly explosive single that will be found on the band's forthcoming EP. Now, put on your headphones, press play, and feel free to soil yourself. ;-)

Bedroom poppers thanks for coming moves to NYC (from Chicago), plays Trans-Pecos 07.03

The bedroom pop produced by three-piece thanks for coming sets itself apart for Rachel Brown's distinct vocals that complement their vivid lyrics, often tackling existential themes (“I’ve got my hand inside my skeleton / trying to make myself into a puppet / so someone else can live my life.”) Their new EP ‘thanks for having me’ was finalized before moving to Brooklyn (from Chicago) earlier this year. The record offers a bare bone, often tongue-in-cheek take on lo-fi that relies on simple arrangements and charming melodies, leaving the listener wanting more. The (very active) band will be playing their next show at the Trans-Pecos on July 3rd. - Lilly Milman

Premiering Lt Headtrip's zany video for 'Neck Right'

Karma Kids Co-Founder Lt. Headtrip raps with the voice of a professional wrestler.  It’s fitting, considering the words he cobbles together for his frenetic verses.  Listening to him rap, you can imagine him tearing off shirt after shirt to intimidate his adversaries.  And with lines like, “I’m dressing in the Emperor’s hand-me-down bathroom gown pants and crown - I’m fancy now” he’s got a firm handle on the imagery he pile-drives into your skull.  “Neck Right” is the first video from his new album 'Comedy of the Filthbeast' dropping today on his Karma Kids label.

See Shannon Entropy Perform Their Debut Live Tonight

 Shannon Entropy popped up on our radar months ago after we fell hard for their Tamale EP. The way the band, consisting of Libby and Jesse Hamlin (guitars, vox), David Hickey (keys, vox), Roman Buermann (bass) and Kevin Wilbanks (drums), mingled elements of math rock, psych and shoegaze on their EP made their sound easily addicting, but their official debut takes their mastery to a whole other level.

Out There Ideas dropped on 6.16 and is the summation of years of songwriting and refinery, building up on a foundation of tracks from deep within the Hamlins' arsenal. A brooding dejection that flows through the album, from the orchestral string intro that opens the album, to dark rock tracks like "VVitches" and album closer "The Ballad of Mustin Park," with Hickey's vocals echoing a tender croon along with it. 

The band will be joined by art pop of Sheers, Mood Beach's synthy grooves and some indie-psych from The Wild War as part of their album release show tonight at Holocene. What better way to spend a hot evening than by chilling out with a bill of great acts. Stream the album to become even more acquainted with the Out There Ideas tracks before the show.
