New Track: "Angelina" - Brandon Can't Dance

On his latest single, “Angelina,” Brandon Ayres, a.k.a. Brandon Can’t Dance, constructs a gloomy, melodic, lo-fi snapshot of shut-in depression. The narrative rides the simplicity of a rough acoustic guitar riff, before breaking out of its confines with the spiking surge of electric. The song is featured on the forthcoming album, Graveyard of Good Times, that will be released on January 13 via Lucky Number Music.

Synth-Soul from Brooklyn: WASHA

WASHA is the name of Dwight Pendleton's project, a one man, DIY synthpop act that interestingly blends (a very white version of) soul vocals with noisy backing tracks flirting with industrial and goth. WASHA is currently working on new music, but we really dig this song, entitled 'Night / Day' from his 2015 EP 'The Bright, Part II.'


New Shadow Band 7" Available for Streaming & Download

Led by Mike Bruno, the musical collective of Shadow Band, which also features Megan Biscieglia (Bad Braids), recently released a new 7” via Mexican Summer. The pair of songs, “Eagle Unseen” and “Moonshine,” enacts a somewhat drafty psych-folk mysticism. These tracks breathe in the mysterious air of the forest, hypnotically wandering among the foliage, as the warmly interwoven percussion, acoustic guitar, keys, etc. draws one into the shadows.

Buzz Alert: GYMSHORTS offer classic slacker punk vibes on latest release "Wet Willy"

With tracks like "Burrito" and "Browned Out," it's clear that slacker punks, GYMSHORTS, are not taking themselves all that seriously--but that's all part of the band's charm. With mellowed punk riffs, surf rock beats, riotous vocals, and a cheeky sense of humor, the group is kind of hard to not immediately fall in love with. Check out "BURRITO" off the band's latest release, Wet Willy, streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

The Meltaways bring riot-grrrl punk to IDIO Gallery 12/17

The Meltaways play riot-grrrl punk the way it was meant to be played--like a knuckle punch connecting with your temple. With spirited, blitzy vocals, schreeching guitars, pointed lyricism and the warmth and scratchiness of a lo-fi recording, the band's self titled release is a blistering 7 track record of earnest bravado. Check out the Meltaways at IDIO Gallery 12/17 with Turnip King, Deadbeat Club and Human People and stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni
