In addition to our showcase Saturday night at Lit Lounge, we’re super happy to be sponsoring No Shame’s show at Cameo Gallery on Wednesday. The evening will feature performances from our own Loveskills, who is releasing his sophomore EP for No Shame Novemeber 4, as well as Moscow popsters Pompeya, Brooklyn rockers Walking Shapes, and a special performance from the new incarnation of Challenger, now known as Wild Pink. Come join us Wednesday night at Cameo Gallery! RSVP here.
Debuting exclusively with Vice’s Thump network, the new video for Loveskills‘ “Fine Lines” is now available for your discerning eyes and ears. Directed by Yuichi Uchida, the video was likened to “some expressionist collage on modern living” and the track itself said to harbor “lush indie-rock, pop sensibilities, some latent house vibes, and a whole lotta breakbeat samples” that “come together to make this track a really unique proposition.”
Check out the video below (feel free to share!) and don’t miss Loveskills at No Shame’s CMJ showcase Wednesday night at Cameo Gallery. RSVP HERE.
“Despite the name, Ugly Kids Club are making real pretty pop.”
Hot on the heels of their Head Games EP release September 30, Ugly Kids Club have shared the super-slick video for the title track via pop music influencer Idolator, who commented that the duo’s “rock-tinged, fiercely catchy electronic pop cuts” bring to mind acts like Chvrches.
Check out the video below and don’t miss them opening up our CMJ showcase Saturday, Oct 25 at Lit Lounge. They play at 7pm sharp! RSVP here.
We’re super stoked to have announced our lineup for the official Noisy Ghost / Graveface CMJ showcase this week, and we’ve put together a couple playlists with tunes from our performers to give you a taste of what to expect. So whether you prefer Spotify or Soundcloud, there’s streaming music for you below.
If you’re going to be in the NYC area on October 25, we really hope you’ll join us at Lit Lounge. Doors at 6pm and music starts at 7.
Yesterday saw the release of the awesomely quirky video for equally awesome track “Bootss” from Nashville’s Tetherball, the newest musical endeavor of one Steve Voss. A jack of many trades, Voss also takes director and editor credits for the video, which Under the Gun Review described as “the kind of video you might not ‘get’ on the first view, but you will definitely want to watch it again.”
Check it out below, and keep an eye out for the full LP Whimsy via Silver Point Records later this month.
After over four years of inactivity, yesterday, we were pleased to share brand new material from the sorely missed indie pop darlings The Postmarks with their remix of The Lovers Key‘s “Saturday Night” premiering on Yahoo! Music. The track will be included in the bonus material on the deluxe edition of The Lovers Key’s debut album Here Today Gone Tomorrow.
Fans of The Postmarks should be pleased to know that the soul of the band lives on in this new project from Christopher Moll. Joined by soulful vocalist Maco Monthervil, the new duo embrance the indie pop goodness we came to know from The Postmarks while adding a bit of the unexpected with Monthervil’s Motown flare. Here Today Gone Tomorrow will be released next Tuesday, September 23.
Brooklyn producer Loveskills just announced the upcoming release of his sophomore EP on No Shame Records with the stream of first single “Luna (The Smashing Pumpkins cover)” debuting on Under the Radar. The 6-song EP, Pure, will be out November 4. For an enhanced listening experience, check out the visualizer for “Luna” below, and feel free to share!
Not ready to say goodbye to summer? Neither are Ugly Kids Club! Check out their new single “I Wanna Be Bad” where it premiered this week on Entertainment Weekly or stream via Soundcloud below (feel free to share!). The track was recently referred to as “a tasty BROODS meets Taylor Swift pop treat,” and we think that’s kind of awesome.
While Cancers are currently based in Athens, GA, half of the duo claims roots from up North, so we’re happy to debut the video for “Moral Net” today with Canadian music authority, Exclaim!. Depending on where you live, the content of the video may or may not be entirely safe for work, but we recommend checking out the retro-looking piece when the moment is right – perhaps after enjoying a smoke (of course, if that’s legal in your part of the world…).
