The Shake Well Brothers - Lo-Fi Blues Rock "Hanukkah Tabarnak"

Here’s a very cool psychedelic blues rock band from Montreal. They also might be from the past as their greasy lo-fi sound was born in the days of the Stooges. The Shake Well Brothers released a 3 song EP last Christmas Eve so naturally it opens with a song titled “Hanukkah Tabarnak”. It’s a chaotic instrumental to set the tone of the quick and in-your-face record. The got some great tones and riffs goin’ on but I’ll admit that even just a little bit of vocals would really tie the record together. Either way just crank it up and enjoy. - Kris Gies





Mick Jenkins “Reginald”

Mick Jenkins has shared the video for the latest single, “Reginald”, from his recently release LP, Pieces Of A Man. The video was directed by Jude Appleby and is a hilarious take on a vintage cop show, similar to the approach of the classic Beastie Boys video. The track itself features a tremendous contribution from Ben Hixon.

You can catch Mick Jenkins on Feb. 2nd at Thalia Hall.

Steve Gunn announces album, debuts psych-folk single

Steve Gunn is perhaps best known for his collaborations, having contributed his psychedelic-tinged folk guitar playing to tracks by Kurt Vile, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Michael Chapman, among others. But beyond that, Gunn is also a quality songwriter. His newest solo work—The Unseen In Between, out January 19th via Matador Records—continues the practice of those releases allowing Gunn’s talents to take center focus. The first single “New Moon” takes a 5-minute crash course into the guitarist's style and influences, beginning with tape-crisped acoustic guitar and floating vocals that welcome in tremolo-doused electric guitar and further adventuring into gentle psychedelia. Like much of Gunn’s work, it’s a drifting track that maintains soft edges and fits perfectly to light pensive moods. Watch the lyric video for “New Moon” below. – Cameron Carr





Weakened Friends bring tour to Burlington & play with Clever Girls at Higher Ground (11.14)

Burlington is in for a storm tonight. Locals Clever Girls will be joined at the Showcase Lounge of Higher Ground by fellow New Englanders Weakened Friends from Portland, Maine, who are currently touring with NYC's Nervous Dater. This tour de force of ferocious indie rock is sure to melt a few faces and maybe even leave a few tearing up, given the fact that Clever Girls have the uncanny ability to shred while simultaneously dance delicately around broken hearts with lyrics like "I will bite my tongue, I won't think out loud  / about how dumb I always get when I see you smile" (from "Dumb Smile.") They don't attempt to be overly clever or tongue-in-cheek or didactic about subjects like love or self-doubt. Their debut LP Luck (streaming below) shows the band isn't afraid to shoot in the dark; maybe they even prefer it that way, letting the goosebumps guide them as they fumble around, seeing what creates a spark. From the look of this album, it seems that they've figured out the formula for finding what's real and drowning out the rest. - Lilly Milman, photo by Hannah Blauner 





Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's Presents at The Elbo Room (11.14) Healing Potpourri, April Magazine, & Half Stack

Good things must once again come to an end it seems. It was announced in October that the beloved Elbo Room would be shutting down on January 1, 2019 -- and with it will go the monthly Throwin' Bo's at the Elbo Room showcase. Founder Eli Anaya, however, will continue to book and promote shows under the name Throwin' Bo's Presents, and tonight will be his second to last show ever at The Elbo Room. The bill is stacked with all locals. Healing Potpourri will bring along their classic easy-listening lounge-psych, which should fit right in with the lo-fi jangly rock of April Magazine. Half Stack will be performing live for the first time since the release of their psych-influenced California country LP Quitting Time. Come experience what may be one of your last shows at the Elbo Room, and maybe sing along to a few swan songs while you're there. Prepare by streaming some of our favorite tracks from these artists below. - Lilly Milman

Throwin' Bo's presents a night with Healing Potpourri, Half Stack, and April Magazine at Elbo Room Wedensday, November 14 @ 9pm $7 adv, $10 DOS // 21+
