Frenchgirls Cover The Strokes The End Has No End

The San Francisco based band, French Girls have released a cover of The Strokes´ The End Has No End. Take a listen and check them out TONIGHT at Hemlock Tavern with Everyone is Dirty and Fever Feel!

¨The sound of our previous albums have ranged from surf rock to grunge, but we have spent the last year retooling our sound. These days our sound is somewhere in the middle of a 3 way standoff between T-Rex, Tame Impala, and The Talking Heads. Because we’ve been been hard at work developing an art direction to exist along side of our new album, our singles have been taking awhile to release. To make up for our lack of releasing anything new, I’ve recently produced a cover of The Strokes’ “The End Has No End” and had artist Oakland artist Salina Shelton design a single cover to accompany it.¨ -Charlie of Frenchgirls

Slingshot Dakota Release Show at Everybody Hits April 2

Slingshot Dakota shoots into Everybody Hits, headlining a record release show for their latest album Break, which was released last month via Topshelf Records. The husband and wife duo of Tom Patterson and Carly Comando explore emotive, earnest territory, adapting to life’s curve balls one pitch at a time. They don’t shy away from challenges, embracing the rough edges with a charming, thick-skinned sincerity. However, toughness is only a segment of their sound - one which also exudes a positive outlook despite the momentary obstacles that lie in the day to day, finding triumphant joy. Mercury Girls deliver loose energetic pop that lyrically digs into pain, contrasting with its harmony-rich polish. Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, showcases beautiful determination through rousing, unshielded vulnerability. With their new LP Guided Meditation due out at month’s end via Lame-O Records, the infectious, expressive, hook-laden pop-rock of Hurry completes this lineup. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita





Magic Shoppe play Great Scott on 4.4

Back in February Boston’s psych band Magic Shoppe released their second E.P. Interstellar Car Crash and it’s a trippy sonic masterpiece. The tracks are guitar centric pieces with distorted vocals floating in the background and cavernous reverb unabashedly pounding in your head. With beautifully languid melodies pulsing rhythmically throughout the E.P., Magic Shoppe succeeds at creating dynamic tunes that manage to maintain a sense of calm despite all that’s happening around them. The last track, “Interstella Car Crash” (streaming below), is the perfect example of that. Starting off with with an uniform tempo, vocals echoing in the distance the guitars sputter evenly before exploding into a spirited riff in the final minute. It’s like watching a star collapse into itself in slow motion and then witnessing it burst into a supernova of brilliant colors and sounds– a wondrous natural phenomena of galactic proportions that leaves us with our mouths agape, staring at the sky in awe.

Weekend Warrior, April 1 - 3

Michelle Zuaner (Little Big League, Post Post) is celebrating the debut label release, Pychopomp (Yellow K Records), from her solo project Japanese Breakfast at Ortlieb’s tonight. The new venture shows a radically contrasting side to Zauner as a songwriter through its use of experimental textures, pads, and loops. Compared to the dynamic energy of the guitar-driven Little Big League, Japanese Breakfast is airy and subdued with sonic nuances. The synth work brings to mind bands like Small Black or Brothertiger, but the songs have more of the carefree charm of The Sundays or Saint Etienne. Joining Japanese Breakfast this evening will be Littler, the fuzzy, poppy, punky band that sounds like the projected approximation of Veruca Salt in the universe where they subsequently became a twee band. Myrrias will also be also performing, bringing a psychedelic slant to the bill, with dark atmospherics and droning, interweaving melodies. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

Velcro & the Slow Children harness some weird energy for "Enough to Die While Sleeping"

Enough to Die While Sleeping, the fruits of a collaboration between Syd Shanshala and Chandler Mills Brown, is the apex of bedroom music. That's "bedroom music" as an aesthetic more than a description of technique—the cough syrup weirdness is here in full force, but the production values and planning are a step above what's typically associated with outsider art. Every move is intentional, and each track and transition lands with its feet on the ground and its eight hands in the air.

 As far as we can tell, this is the first release on Mesoamerica Records, a budding label/art collective founded by Brown. If this album, a freak-flags-high triumphant march heralding an evolution in outsider art, is any indication of what we'll be seeing from them in the future, consider us psyched. -Austin Phy
