Teen Suicide opens for Elvis Depressedly at Strange Matter on 8.05

From 2009 until 2013, Teen Suicide existed as the solo project of Sam Ray, who self-released all of the project's lo-fi bedroom recordings on Bandcamp. The band recently announced their return with a permanent lineup, and signed to Boston label Run For Cover Records, under whose umbrella they released a collection of new songs, entitled It's the Big Joyous Celebration, Let's Stir the Honeypot. This is a daunting 69 minute album that consists of 26 tracks featuring a variety of different sounds. The album's most accessible moments feature almost flower pop sensibility with orchestral flourishes (hear opener Living Proof), while tracks like “Alex” seem to reference at once folk, prog and slacker rock influences. To make things even more complicated, the album unravels even more unexpected moments featuring experimental electronic and psychedelic influences. Teen Suicide will be supporting fellow lo-fi rockers and labelmates Elvis Depressedly at Strange Matter on August 5th. - John Honan





Rabbits to Riches Go for Broke at The Pharmacy July 27

The rousing rumble of power-pop trio Rabbits to Riches enters The Pharmacy this evening. With a sleek yet slightly sinister, bass-steered edge, Brigitte Benecke’s vocal delivery intimates action in a monologue-confessional approach. Instrumentally, that close range sound can sit at a gentle, rolled-over pace or be accelerated, creating pressure amid limited space within the tonal-tunnel. Despite those confines, there’s an insistent, rhythmic energy that infilitrates. Emotively splashed vocals meet the consistent backend push in the rock of Birthday Boy, while the local lo-fi, garage-pop of Line Leader and the smooth smacking grunge-pop of Tennessee tandem Sad Baxter, whose new record Weirdy will be released on July 29, round this lineup into form.

From the NYC submissions: Sheen Marina's bizarre surf rock

Alternating between swirling, lawless sea swells of sound and spacey-lounge jazz, Brooklyn-based band Sheen Marina is as unpredictable as a rogue wave. Sounding every bit Mars Volta as lo-fi sunshine-y surf rock, the band's chill-beach tendencies are punctuated by a looming chaotic (and math-y at once) madness that threatens to take charge at any given moment. Despite this, the band comes off as tight, raw and endlessly interesting - leaving the listener picking up new song elements with every pass. Sheen Marina's sound was made for summer (with a twist), so check out their recently dropped single, a rather irrecognizable cover of "Gettin' Hungry" by the Beach Boys, and their first EP, Coda Arms, here. - Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "Georgia+Mass" - Moor Mother

Here is a new expansive track from experimental artist Moor Mother (formerly Moor Mother Goddess), a.k.a. Camae Ayewa, called "Georgia+Mass". It features samples from the Georgia Mass Choir's "Come in the Room," along with Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. Ayewa shared that the composition is about “investigating alternative methods of healing.” You will be able to find it on Moor Mother's upcoming debut full-length album, Fetish Bones, due out in September via Don Giovanni Records, and she'll be performing live this Sunday, July 31 on a bus touring through Philly as part of the Double Decker Music Series.





Vagabon brings her muted indie folk to Silent Barn on 7.28

Vagabon is the indie rock project of New York's Laetitia Tamko, whose emotionally charged electric folk songs often focus on moving or wandering from place to place in search of a purpose and loved ones. The trio released their debut EP Persian Garden in November of 2014, which features six lush tracks that are brimming with honesty and delicate instrumentation. The album’s opener “Cold Apartment Floors” is a ballad characterized by shifts between soft, quiet sections and guitar charged climaxes. Following track “Shadows” (streaming) speeds up with folkier elements and lyrics that center around following a loved one wherever they may go - even when the feelings aren’t mutual. Vagabon will be playing the Silent Barn on July 28th in support of Fear of Men. - John Honan
