Dryclean resists on new EP "Tired & Wired," plays Sunnyvale 7.10

What America needs on July 4th—or at the very least, what it deserves in our current political climate of intense partisan divide— is honest-to-God punk music that will shake us from the collective drunken stupor of holiday shenanigans. Dryclean is here to deliver this necessary intervention on their just-released Tired & Wired EP. Delivering mid-paced melodic grooves reminiscent of ’90s California garage rock, the New York trio’s performance gets to the core of many collective frustrations, be it our relationship with technology on “Technodrome,” or the general listlessness of existence on “I Don’t Know.” While not an overtly confrontational EP, it’s a sharp reminder of the dehumanizing effects inherent to the 9-5 grind, and as such, an energetic act of resistance against the powers that be. Rip it below, and catch them at Sunnyvale on July 10th, supporting I Am The Polish Army. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Futurist's "Olive Mountain" is both transcidental and tangible, release new LP "Omens" 9.27

Animistic metaphors play center stage on “Olive Mountain,” the new single by Brooklyn psych-rock veterans Futurist. Interspersed among syncopated sunny guitar lines and trance inducing background vox, frontman Curtis Peel waxes on about “fountainhead’s through the noose,” “diamond science,” and “separating blood from a stone.” Futurist’s lyrics wouldn’t be out of place in a tarot deck, but they’re not entirely detached from reality; at the core of “Olive Mountain” is a clear yearning for closure, likely of a romantic nature. As such, the band’s ability to bridge the gap between the tangible and the transcendental endows their music with a unique magical realism, and promises more esoteric imagery on their forthcoming sophomore effort, Omens, out September 27th.

So Sensitive's dark pop debut out 08.02; hear new single now

So Sensitive -- the dark-pop outfit born from the ashes of experimental duo Muscle & Marrow -- will release their debut album Bedroom Drama on August 2nd. They've just released second single "My Heart Is Open," after setting the tone with "What's A Girl To Do?". The new track continues the lightening of So Sensitive's sound from their earlier days; the indie pop of Kira Clark and Keith McGraw seems accessible compared to the rumbling rawness of Muscle & Marrow. Despite that, "My Heart Is Open" remains full of emotion and grit as an homage to Clark's songwriting hero Courtney Love. The single channels Bedroom Drama's themes of sexual identity, obsession, and sacrifice, showing that though the duo's music is lighter, the subject matter certainly isn't. Take a listen to "My Heart Is Open" below. - Will Sisskind
