Noisey was kind enough to premiere the first ever single by Bay Area trio Night School. The track comes from their debut 7″ EP out Oct 7th via Graveface. If you dig the sounds of Shangri-Las, Whirr or Best Coast we recommend checking out ‘Birthday’ at Noisey or Soundcloud. Perfect late-summer driving music we say!
Shot entirely in their hometown of Brooklyn, Onward Chariots just released a video for “I Know We’ll Find A Way” off their upcoming EP Take Me To Somewhere. The ever-cheerful sounding (although the lyrics may sometimes be downright sad) chamber pop band is set to release said EP next Tuesday, September 2. Check out the video on YouTube below or where it premiered at Magnet.
“Cancers’ new album Fatten the Leeches brings the fun and excitement back from yesteryear, while letting you forget all the shitty parts.” – Noisey
Athens, GA’s Cancers just premiered the stream of their debut LP with Noisey in conjunction with the launch of the album preorder via Dead Broke Rekerds. The record will be pressed to a limited run of 100 white and 200 black vinyl, with CD, tape, and digital options available. If you haven’t checked them out yet, stream singles “Be Cool” and “Moral Net” for a quick taste, or check out the full album stream on Soundcloud. The album drops September 16!
Last summer saw the original release of Not Waving But Drowning, a captivating coming of age tale which happens to boast a soundtrack riddled with music that became the debut record from Challenger. Last week, the film was released on Netflix, and we highly recommend you take the time to kick back and enjoy. You can find the movie HERE. Keep your ears peeled for those Challenger tunes!
On Friday, Challenger released a brand new video for “Science of a Seizure” off their most recent LP, Back to Bellevue. The video was shot on location at Pennhurt Hospital outside Philly and directed by Caleb Rugg. BaebleMusic was the first to share, explaining that the video “features Ross acting as the abandoned asylum’s resident phantom, vocalizing behind delays, high-voltage synth lines, and percussion.”
“The song wouldn’t sound out of place in some weird ’60s French mod B-movie, the kind where the protagonists puff Gitanes, cruise the streets on Vespas and burn the nights away in low-lit dance clubs.”
We don’t speak french, but we know what we like. The Lovers Key’s latest teaser from Here Today Gone Tomorrow features Maco Monthervil singing the language of love. “Dis-Moi Qui Tu Aimes,” a bonus addition to the deluxe LP, is the French version of album cut “Who’s the One You Love?” and it’s ready for stream over at Wondering Sound. Hear the “raucous garage-soul rave-up” below.
“Their grungy guitars are more than a little inspired by those early Sub Pop bands, but singer Ella Kaspar takes an airier approach, more akin to the dream pop bands of that era.”
Cancers are only a few months away from the September 16 release of their debut LP, Fatten The Leeches. In preparation for the album, today, Brooklyn Vegan premiered “Moral Net,” a loud, grungy barn-burner encased in a thick layer of fuzz. Head over to Brooklyn Vegan to hear “Moral Net,” and check out another track from Fatten The Leeches below.
Onward Chariots’ Take Me To Somewhere doesn’t come out until Sept. 2, but the band continues to tease fans with new music. Our first taste was the hook ridden pop dream “It Doesn’t Even Matter”.
Now, in a collaboration with Performer Magazine, Onward Chariots share “I Know We’ll Find a Way.” The track is more down-tempo than “It Doesn’t Even Matter” and presents singer Ben Morss’ smooth vocals as the focal point. Hear it now!
