Future Generations announce new album + talk about gear on Delicious Audio

After the initial warped drum beat, it only takes 8 seconds for Future Generations to kick in to full alt-pop shine on new single “All The Same.” The track is the first from the Brooklyn group’s newly announced sophomore album, Landscape, out September 13 via Frenchkiss Records. “All The Same” moves Future Generation’s sleek alt-pop into more synth and electronics heavy sounds than the band’s 2016 self-titled full-length. The highlight of the song comes in the form of a arpeggiated synth melody that floats the chorus. Listen to “All The Same” below. – Cameron Carr

New Track: "Blue Line Baby" - Nothing

Another sonic glimpse into Dance On the Blacktop, the forthcoming album from Nothing (scheduled for release on August 24 via Relapse Records), has been revealed. “Blue Line Baby” weaves between the soft innocent nature of the vocals and the rougher, combative side of the instrumental swells. Finding a union in those contrasting elements of hushed and heavy is a jarring musical memory. You can feel Nothing at Union Transfer on Saturday, October 6, supported by Swirlies, Big Bite, and Smut! (Photo by Ben Rayner)

New Rosali Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Trouble Anyway, the sophomore album Rosali Middleman, a.k.a. Rosali, recently crept across the horizon. Elegant, hypnotically soulful folk is on full display. With direct, heartfelt songwriting and soothing vocals, she navigates through delicate and treacherous instrumental landscapes, providing a textured and at times, mystical setting, one that is both serene and stirring to the psyche. Tonight, Johnny Brenda’s will be hosting Rosali's album release show, where she'll be supported by Daniel Bachman and Erin Rae.

Lala Lala "Destroyer"

Hardly Art just announced that they have signed Lala Lala and has released the video for their new single “Destroyer”. The single is taken from their forthcoming album The Lamb, which will be released on September 28th.

Lala Lala is primarily the work of London-raised and Chicago-based musician Lilli West. Over the last few years her supporting cast has evolved, and on this album she is joined by Emily Kempf (of Dehd and Vail) on bass/backup vocals and Ben Leach (of Drool) on drums.

Record of the Month: True Blue's "Edge Of" EP - live at Elsewhere on 08.15

Everything about True Blue requires a double-take. A cursory listen of the debut EP from Porches’ bassist turned solo artist reveals a palette that often overlaps with Aaron Maine’s patented brand of throwback electro-pop. It’s on second glance where Maya Laner’s version of pop morphs into uncanny, yet compelling ballads that dig into the flesh of listeners. Using imagery that invokes the more rustic parts of the United States, Edge Of detail filthy characters and depressing scenarios. “Rocky Bottom” is a quaint tune that gallops at a steady pace, but Laner’s chipmunk vocals give this somewhat kitsch song an unsettling sense of reality that is wonderfully uncomfortable. The rest of the EP could also double as muzak from educational videos from the '90s, but it’s the warping of this very distinct vibe into something simultaneously blissful and unnerving that makes Edge Of a release that rewards multiple listens. The artwork perfectly sums up the music of True Blue: a somewhat simplistic pose that reveals something disturbing about its immeasurable size and discomforting beauty. Laner will be performing at Elsewhere on August 15, and you can stream her EP below. -Tucker Pennington
