Meernaa’s tour with John Vanderslice

Meernaa, the “beautiful, freaky dream” of Oakland’s own Carly Bond, is a fuckin beautiful freaky listening experience. Tiny Telephone production quality is full-on apparent: that room-encompassing, take-me-away-Calgon feeling is a pleasure. Last year’s EP, Strange Life, features an all-star collection of supporting musicians, with tracks ranging from bluesy synth rock to R&B post-rock and a vocal range that repeatedly surprises. Tracks like “Good Luck” are like if Bonnie Raitt, Angel Olson, Sharon Van Etten and that scene in the snow globe from the Labyrinth all got together and created an experience of a song. Meernaa is on tour with Mr. Vanderslice as we speak. See them at The Rickshaw Stop on April 28 to experience Meernaa’s newest work and to hear John Vanderslice's new album, The Cedars. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





SoCal Hunnies - Groovy Soul Inspired Rock Trio New Single "Don't Ever Leave Your Man or Woman"

Don’t let the geography of the name fool ya, SoCal Hunnies are a groovy three piece band based in Toronto. Their single “Don’t Ever Leave Your Man or Woman” has a quick beat with a funky bassline that really pushed the track into the soul inspired world where they like to live. The guitar solos are extremely cool in this track going from a spacious, chilled out zone into a hectic shred all while keeping the track  flowing nicely. SoCal Hunnies will be playing the Springtide Music Festival in Uxbridge on April 26th. – Kris Gies





Miss Grit dazzle on their new "Talk Talk" EP + performs @ Elsewhere on 04.25

There’s a wonderful sense of balance brought to the table by Miss Grit’s new Talk Talk EP, both in its approach to chaotic-tinged songwriting and the brilliant pallet of sounds explored. Each of the four songs toggle between airy and orchestral synthesizers that careen into fuzzy barrages of sound or simply glitch out at the seams. The marriage between the gutsy and the beautifully arranged is a marvel to witness, and this release is proving to be a standout for 2019. You can catch Miss Grit at Elsewhere on April 26 before they embark on a short U.K. tour. –Tucker Pennington

New Track: "Class Killer" - Josh Levinsky & The Schmoos

A new single, “Class Killer,” recently arrived via Josh Levinsky & The Shmoos. The song occupies a conversational tone as lines are punctuated by backend exclamations. A confident & somewhat cocky narrator walks through the halls in an agitated manner as an acoustic, garage-punk tone is achieved. Opposing viewpoints are traded back & forth as a thoughtful aggression is released.





Final Mumblr Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly quartet Mumblr appears to have released its swan song, Genie. The band continues to create a diverse, intriguing sound. Expressing vulnerability and volatility, these songs engage with their melodic yet menacing/fragile/frenetic/funky tones. Casual, observational lyricism makes quick, gravitational shifts, instilling urgency. Ranging from calm to crushing, there’s a poetic, unabashed strength that leaves a lasting impression. Thanks for being original and kicking ass, fellas!
