July 2015
The Great Void
"Shift Age
"
mp3

If you're one of the few not plagued by thoughts of mortality and burdened by self-reflection, consider yourself lucky. If you're a brooder, however, then Shift Age, by NYC dark electro-rock project The Great Void, might be the record for you. It bears all the outwards signs of happy pop music, though the longer you listen, the more surreal it gets. Especially vivid is “Medicine Ball,” whose plunky synths and new-wave vocals divert bleakly-rendered lines like, “I know we'd have fun/But you're much too young.” By “Shift Age (Part 2),” it's clear the gloss is just a cover for deconstructing nostalgia itself. “Out with the days of the old ways” sings leader Josh Ascalon before a barrage of high-pitched squeals surge towards an apocalyptic finale. Or maybe that's just the hardware inside his keyboard threatening to fry out? - Brian Chidester

Math-rock duo Hollow Ran to perform upcoming shows through February

Hollow Ran is hi-speed cyberpunk dissonance with an unstable core reactor—a locally-sourced organic alternative for the Tera Melos-starved patrician. They're the lost ark, the result of Nick Reinhart and Damon Che performing a fusion dance, and like their now-deceased senpai 100 Onces (rip in peace), eschew the power trio and full band. They go hard. They go fast. And they will melt your face faster than a chemical burn.

If you caught their performance last Friday at the Frida Theater—where they played to a collage of anime sequences including FLCL and Cowboy Bebop—or at Top Acid's Anniversary show, you've already fallen in love and you'll agree the duo should have scored the soundtrack to Tekkonkinkreet. But if not, get acquainted with their 2015 four-way split with Jitters, Dagrons, and MILKIS before running off to see them this month.  - Ryan Mo

Live Review: Nightgown at The Hi Hat 2/11

It was our first night out to Highland Park's newest music venue The Hi Hat, but we weren't nervous. We were excited to see the spacious hall from floor to rafter, and the change of scenery was welcome.

Beyond the decor that whispered Bootleg in our ears, there was plenty of room to move, and plenty of room to sit and enjoy the coquetish charm of Family Hahas, whose reverb-bespoke guitars and Hofner thump rang out something familiar in the audience. But Nightgown's Laurel Noone, with her elastic expressions and fulltone swagger, gave the half-converted pool hall a fuzzy bear hug, blasting a Marcy Playground cover while residents sipped on disco lemonade. Her performance was topped, only marginally, by the joie de vivre of experimental pop sextet Easy, whose setup gave the sound technician a run for his money. We'd be lying if we said the cookies they passed around didn't affect our judgment. Regardless, we wrote our number on the napkin and passed it on to the bartender. Check our Instagram for photos from the night @TheDeliLA! - Ryan Mo, photos by Michelle McCausland

Deli Nashville Premiere: The Henry Millers unveil "It's Cold"

The folks over at The Henry Millers are hard at work on a new EP, and they were kind enough to let us at the Deli Nashville give you the first taste! "It's Cold," the first single from the forthcoming release, is a sentimental little number that sounds something like How the Grinch Stole Christmas by way of MGMT. The center-stage metallic drums and wily synth bloops give the track an industrial grit amid the cheery overtones, somewhat like a shuttered factory transformed by a snowy day into a playground wonderland. The song is plenty upbeat and catchy while having, as the title might suggest, an edge that's chilly to the touch. 

It's cold outside, no doubt, so why not stay indoors and stream the newest from The Henry Millers instead? -Austin Phy
