Nicotine Dolls mull thoughts better left unsaid on “Burning a Good Thing”

Offset by Fincheresque lighting and massive Phil Collins’ alt-rock instrumental hits, new Nicotine Dolls video “Burning a Good Thing” ruminates on the wandering thoughts that can ruin an otherwise healthy relationship: namely, the desire to be with someone else. In the eyes of of singer-songwriter Sam Cieri, such thoughts as contemplations (and perhaps unintended actions) have a tendency to undo otherwise stable relationships and, in so many words, “burn a good thing.” Against this metaphorical fire, the track’s visuals feature actual flames, not to mention a manifestation of the psyche in the form of physical blackmail; exacerbating the tension of the music video are Nicotine Doll’s massive percussive hits and muted, tactile string work, building to stadium-filling riffs evocative of 80s guitar pop. It’s a dramatic ride from start to finish — watch it below.

PREMIERE: A Shadow of Jaguar drops new single “Love You, Hate You”

Alt-rock duo A Shadow of Jaguar will release their new full-length album Different Brain on January 11th at Knitting Factory, but they’ve released its first single “Love You, Hate You” as a preview. One listen to this Deli premiere and you’ll understand why A Shadow of Jaguar are a band to watch going into the new decade. The duo’s grunge-inspired riffs pack lots of energy and emotion, especially on a track like “Love You, Hate You” which tells the story of love without the happy ending. A Shadow of Jaguar will release Different Brain on a bill alongside fellow Brooklyn bands The Rizzos and Ovareasy; ring in the new year with all of them on January 11th. - Will Sisskind

Muddy Ruckus offers a haunting brand of Americana, plays Stone Church 12.05

Back in October, Muddy Ruckus released a single pleasantly infectious, a song with a sinister rhythm that haunts. “From The Floor” is led by an ominous banjo riff that is followed by a thumping bassline, marching to the rich harmonies of both Ryan Flaherty and Erika Stahl on guitar and drums respectively. The duo that is Muddy Ruckus takes in this song, and their work at large, a more somber approach to America’s usually upbeat style, and it works. With eerie lyrics like “I’ve been sleeping for so long/ I don’t know what's right from wrong/ I don’t know if I was ever born at all/ Something’s happening again/ Hey man don’t you understand?/ There are voices coming up/ from the floor.” the Americana music the duo produces has a deliciously ghastly tinge. The Auburn, ME, duo will be playing on December 5th at the Stone Church in Brattleboro, VT. Stream “From The Floor” below for something different today. - Rene Cobar, photo by TBERG Photography





JackLNDN Brings Infectious House Set to Empire Control

 

Young and ambitious, JackLNDN has a wizard-like ability to transform a room. The native Londoner has been playing sets and creating music at a breakneck pace that even his more experienced peers cannot keep up with. While Indiana-based rapper, Freddie Gibbs, performed through a cloud of smoke at Empire’s outdoor stage, JackLNDN invited an understated yet dedicated crowd to his set on the indoor stage. 

 

Local opening DJ, Ben///Jester, deftly set the mood for the crowd with samples and remixes of tracks by Bob Moses, Parcels and Bonobo. The youthful DJ orchestrated a dance party with assiduous attention to detail and endeared the crowd to his upbeat vibe by curating a gentle ebb and flow of danceable tracks. 

 

While the DJ openers made sure to limber up the Austin crowd, it was JackLNDN who would prove to be the tipping point in making Saturday a memorable night. While JackLNDN’s bedrock is firmly rooted in house music, he switches the lenses of which his music flows from pop to jazz to progressive.  Sliding through hits like “All I See”, “The Feels” and “Never Get Enough” - he kept his audience on his hook with an incessant barrage of grooved-out chord progressions. 

 

Playing late into Saturday night, JackLNDN showcased an incredible voice and a sharp skillset of playing keys while simultaneously mixing his own music. An entertaining light show with intricate visuals only added to the lounge atmosphere that continued a slow burn of sexuality throughout the night. While many in the audience were in constant movement for over 3 hours straight, the mollifying effect of the music unburdened the crowd for a cathartic release.
