"You Were My Young" is Maybe April's sweet swan-song for a young romance

 If you don't shed a tear (internally or externally) listening to Maybe April's "You Were My Young," you've probably not had a high school romance. Nonetheless, this song is a gorgeous, melodic swan-song for a teenage romance that anyone can enjoy. Honeyed nostalgic imagery are no doubt this band's strong suit. Kristen, Katy and Alaina's voices blend together creating a lovely anchor for the song atop a rhythmic acoustic guitar and drum country arrangement. The video, albeit a bit cheesy, makes me wish I were young and in love again. Be sure to check out the band on tour this summer. -Geena Kloeppel 

 





New Track: "Too Much Time" - Stoops

Stoops recently shared a new track, “Too Much Time,” off their EP Singles. After a brief moment to find its sonic footing, the song rolls forward in joyous oddity. Pairing the bounce of percussion and keys with vocal harmonies, there’s a pleasant looseness to the recording. That head-in-the-clouds, daydream quality is temporarily interrupted by an audio interlude of hostility, provided by a Joe Pesci sample, before returning to its exuberant, brighter tones. Keep a look out for the band's debut full-length, The Syrup of Ipecac, and catch the quintet this Sunday, July 15 at The Barbary, supporting Sweet Moves and Cave Mode Shakes!





Sean Henry premieres creepy single "The Ants", performs at Alphaville on 07.22

There’s a general feeling of creeping unease in Sean Henry’s first single “The Ants,” off his upcoming album Fink. The way his voice worms around your ear as he describes the murder of insects on a mass scale is vivid and unsettling. The rustic production only amplifies this eerie feeling; whereas other lo-fi artists use the aesthetic to communicate intimacy, Henry’s crumpled vocals and the slight effects draped over the single create the feeling of being trapped in the traumatized dreams of a child. The chorus, however, breaks into an assured incantation that repeats the line “Goodbye, all of my problems”, and the guitars pick up to create a quiet catharsis. “The Ants” is self-described as “soft grunge”, and this carries over into the tone and sound in a multitude of ways. The dynamic crescendos are muted without losing their potency. The warbled verses that are anxious and freaky shed their childlike persona for a matured reawakening each time the chorus hits. It makes sense that Henry would take advantage of Friday the 13 to release his debut album; his sound is unnerving and captivating, balancing the lo-fi sounds that border on ugly and vulnerable. You can watch the music video for "The Ants" below and see him live on July 22 at Alphaville. - Tucker Pennington
