Caravela craft sunny dream-pop on "Ski," play Baby's 11.10

New York band of brothers Caravela lay down sunny dream-pop on their most recent record Ski, splitting the difference between emo-inspired lyricism and bright, guitar-driven jangle rock in their dynamic sound. From the infectious riffing on “Carrier,” wherein distant trips to Tokyo are hazily described against stadium-filling percussive fills, to the ghostly, love sick falsetto of album standout “Make Believe,” Frank and Stephen Graniero maintain momentum throughout the album’s ten tracks, delivering a final output perfect for fans of emo, post-punk, and the like. Stream it below, and catch them at Baby’s All Right on November 10th. Connor Beckett McInerney

Glasshealer Exudes Energy with New Single "Empty Bottles"

 

It’s hard to pin down exactly what you’re hearing when listening to Glasshealer. With a mix of electronica, noise rock, and a twist of pop-punk, the band’s high energy vibes and emotional lyrics certainly deliver excitement and intrigue. Their latest single “Empty Bottles” is no different. 

 

“Empty Bottles” feels like a more manic, less centered type of new wave. It has the same electronic waves and steady beats, but the vocals are more reminiscent of early 2000’s Brendon Urie; emotional and frequently veering towards sarcastic. The biggest impact from the song comes from its sense of urgency. It pushes you to get on your feet and do something, do anything other than staying stagnant. It’s difficult to maintain such an intense pace without overwhelming the listener, but thanks to how synced in the band is, the song keeps the tempo high and exudes good vibes simultaneously.

Hello Yello's dual release, My Life as a Teenage Robot

Oakland-based Hello Yello released two tracks as a duo called My Life As A Teenage Robot. Songs "Lifeguard" and "I Really Loved You," which as the band says are two tracks that lend "...a softer hand to their innovative mash-up of punk and grunge sounds." The project continues a busy year for the group, following the release of their debut EP Love Wins earlier this year, and they just started their North American tour. Catch them and listen in. It's alternative, grunge and something we can't put our finger on. -Lucille Faulkner





Pardoner plays El Rio Nov 6

San Francisco punky alternative group Pardoner is set to play El Rio on November the 6 with New York’s Bethlehem Steel and World Smasher. Pardoner’s most recent album, Playin' on a Cloud, was a self-released collection of songs with Weezer and Green Day influences and some Fiery Furnaces thrown in for kicks. They’re fun and loud and happy and ready to roll. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Willzyx demolishes in new record "The Raw Congenital Complex," plays Koto 11.13

Creepy and satisfying is the noise rock of Manchester, New Hampshire's Willzyx. For metal aficionados, the group's latest effort, The Raw Congenital Complex, is jam-packed with tracks that ooze with rage and demolish melodic structures. Take the furiously-paced track "Cauterized Eye" as a prime example of the band's tendency for bursts of distorted vocals, synthesized strains of doom, and eerie overtures. Other songs like "Cast Off" drift into more serene territories, and with patience and a hypnotizing guitar riff bubble into thick, steely-cold compositions. The band is a year-long Halloween special that is too damn creepy and good to pass up. The band's next gig is booked at Koto in Salem, Massachusetts, on November 13th. Listen to the mechanic bassline that leads "Calloused and Cynical" streaming below and drown in the math-rock madness. - Rene Cobar, photo by Selena Barker
