W.C. Beck takes NYC in new video for "The Long Way Home"

W.C. Beck comes to New York via Portland, Paris, and Kansas, cities with vast differences in their geography and culture. Beck's travels have therefore provided his music with a cosmopolitan air and richness, but he still plays with a distinct Americana sound, which has the power to attract (and move) a multitude of listeneres with varying backgrounds. It fits, therefore, that Beck would shoot his music video for "The Long Way Home" -- a hymn about living a life of constant exploration in order to find home -- in the middle of Grand Central, where tens of thousands of commuters, locals, and tourists pass each other every day. The song will appear on Beck's upcoming album First Flight, his ninth studio release, which drops on June 7th. He plays a release show at Mercury Lounge on June 9th to mark the event; stay tuned for more on that. In the meantime, watch the video for "The Long Way Home" below. - Will Sisskind

I.O.U. showcases its ferocious side in debut EP

Brooklyn’s post-hardcore trio I.O.U. demonstrates that it means business with a visceral display of sonic anger in the opening track of their newly released EP I.O.U. ONE. “Captain Howdy” cleaves its way into the eardrums of the listener with the ferocity of its guitar riffs, a fuzz-infected bassline, and dauntless drum fills that may leave you in a feverish state of thrill. The group’s four-track record starts at a high intensity and never lets up the energy, without giving up the opportunity for sonic experimentation given by slower tempos, like in second track "My Maytag." The vocals of all three members shred through the entrails of “Swamp,” while in “Bossy” the trio lets everyone know that “cannibals are people too.” I.O.U. is a feral band in all the right ways, check it out below. - Rene Cobar

argonaut&wasp vamp into the night on "Composure," play Rough Trade 5.22

NYC indie dance duo argonaut&wasp lay down vintage sensuality on new release “Composure,” a smooth, sample friendly '80s vamp. Described by some as “the perfect soundtrack to New York City,” the Burlington-via-Brooklyn outfit captures vibes emblematic of the Big Apple’s past and present; their latest single is as much Oliver Stone’s Wall Street than it is Katja Blichfeld’s High Maintenance, a synth-heavy midnight interlude that’s neither old nor new. What makes “Composure” such an engaging listen lies in argonaut&wasp’s ability to round out the track’s more treble-heavy components – there’s jangly guitar riffs and pitch-shifted samples abound, but they never distract from the urbane quality of its keyboard backbone. It gives the song a dark, almost muted quality, marked by a palpable energy that lies just beneath the surface, the type of tune you could jam to both start and end your night. Listen below, and catch them at their Rough Trade on May 22nd. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
