Noisy trio Baby Acid unveils video for 'Baby Guts' + releases LP at Footlight on 12.09

The reckless abandon of Brooklyn rockers partying hard is on full display in Baby Acid’s debut music video and song “Baby Guts.” The recently premiered track previews their full-length Moon Sounds Records release on December 9. Recorded and produced by band visionary Lindsey and Jasno from Vandelles/Hellbirds notoriety at his Secret Loft Studios, while mastering was handled by A Place To Bury Strangers Oliver Ackermann. The track itself emerges via full-on fuzzed out guitar chords while initial vocals proclaim that “my baby comes from France, my baby don’t wear no pants.” While the lyrical output may playfully favor words that rhyme over actual storytelling, ferocious riffs and rhythms are executed with serious intent. Video imagery depicts the black-clad band against a white backdrop interspersed with footage from a raging house party. As walls become increasingly covered in handwritten graffiti, impromptu crowd-surfing and bathroom shenanigans mirror the track's explosive conclusion. Baby Acid play their album release show on 12/9 at The Footlight w/ Parlor Walls, Ex Girlfriends and Thick. - Dave Cromwell

Be Charmed by Sea Charms

We appreciate the talents of anyone that breaks through the typical mold of an art form. Our latest outside-of-the-music-box thinkers to praise come as a pair who takes two instruments predominately used as accents to the standard guitar/bass/drums format and make them the focus, in a way that can't be ignored.

Crystal Cortez and Jess McFadden are Sea Charms, a duo that dynamically uses keys and a sax, respectively, to create large scapes blending jazz, electronic and hip hop. It's nearly impossible not to get lost in McFadden's sax tones, while Cortez's slick moves on the keys lay the base for the grooves to move on.

The two started out mainly as a live act, procuring news fans with every set played. With the release of their official self-titled recorded debut last year and a live album documenting their tour of the Midwest, we just can't get enough. 

And it's with our insatiable desire for these two they've become our latest Artists of the Month and we congratulate them. Let's hope there's another chance to see them live again soon!

KPSU and Lola's Room Team Up for All Ages

In the first of what is sure to be a successful slew, KPSU has teamed up with McMenamins Lola's Room for a series of all-ages shows that begins with a perfectly curated lineup promising strong hints of shoegaze, dream pop and a touch of 90's revival.

We have no doubt in our minds that Lubec will bring yet another good set, since the Portland vets have played and shared consistently great music for the last five years. Cosmic Debt, their September release, continues on in that same vein, but the other bands on the bill add an extra bit of intrigue to the show.

Alien Boy has done a lot with their poppy post punk in the last year and it's something that can't be missed, while Helens take on the genre is a bit heavier and gazed out. Floating Room, the newest endeavor musically bringing together drowse's Kyle Bates and Maya Stoner of Sabonis, could not offer a better representation of both bands' sound fused into one. Their debut Sunless is due out in just a couple weeks and sees the glum echo of comfort found in drowse's production while giving another platform for the signature gossamer tone Stoner's voice provides to Sabonis. 

Doors for this KPSU/Lola's Room show tomorrow open at 7pm, with music starting at 8pm. Tickets are only $5 will any Student ID and just $8. Get excited, there are a couple more KPSU and Lola's Room shows this Fall that are just as promising.





Weekend Warrior, November 4 - 6

Ominous ruminations churn in the post-punk trio of Psychic Teens. Larry Ragone’s bellowing baritone commands one’s attention, circling the gloomy pensions that bounce in the mind during periods of isolation. That unnerving spiral rushes ahead, as a hanging electric charge of guitar sparks and a smattering of shadowy backend accelerates, completing the heavy melodic circuit. This Sunday night, the power trio will be rustling the crowd at the First Unitarian Church. Ronnie Vega ushers in the evening, delivering a grimy, grungy brand of hip-hop and a pair of Don Giovanni artists in the socially conscious, status-quo-shaking, noise-sample-smashing force of Camae Ayewa, a.k.a. Moor Mother, and the locked-in, adrenalin-pumping sound of Screaming Females completes this stacked billing. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 7:30pm, $15, All Ages - Michael Colavita
