Pecas bring mellow psychedelia to Mercury Lounge on 06.30

Brooklyn indie rock quartet Pecas will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 30th in support of Modern Diet. On their 2014 release, Dwelling, songwriter Sandy Davis paints pictures of the quiet despair and contemplation that occurs in the midst of a relationship's slow decline. Reverb-drenched vocals, warbling keys and tremolo-laced electric guitars lend a fittingly melancholy ambiance. Listen to "Keeper" below! - Ethan Ames





The Bad Signs expertly navigate a dream world in "Blue Love"

Watching the official video for “Blue Love” by the Nashville-based The Bad Signs is like stepping into a dream world. The bellowing, echoing harmonies are a nod to the powerhouse duo Beach House, while the lyricism and subtle twang of the lead vocals carve out a space for the track in the Nashville scene. The monochromatic video is surreally minimalistic, matching the aesthetic of the track perfectly. Watch the video for “Blue Love” streaming below. -Lilly Milman

 





Snail Mail tours, plays Union Transfer 07.14 with Waxahatchee and Cayetana

Baltimore indie-rock act Snail Mail is playing Union Transfer on July 14th with DIY favorites Waxahatchee and Cayetana. On Snail Mail's most recent EP, Habit, fuzzed-out and reverb-drenched guitars lay the groundwork for Lindsey Jordan's resonant vocals, which often seem to drift out of painful, nebulous daydreams: "I wanna spend the entire year/Just face down/And on my own time/I wanna waste mine." The show will kick off the band first US tour of the year, followed by a second leg in October. Check out the video for "Thinning" below.  - Ethan Ames





A Deli premiere: Pregnant's video for "Jar of Clay" - see them live at Elbo Room 06.25

Pregnant is the electro/indie-pop brainchild of bizarre Bay Area composer Daniel Trudeau. We are premiering here the official video for "Jar of Clay" from the upcoming album, Duct Tape. The video is a psychedelic collage of kaleidoscopic visuals and lush natural imagery that compliments the unpredictable, Animal Collective-esque composition. Pregnant will bring his quirky and imaginative sound to Elbo Room on June 25th, do not miss it, and watch the video for "Jar of Clay" below! - Ethan Ames





New Track: "Dreaming In The Non-Dream" - Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

We're still feeling a bit groggy from all the heat and humidity, and to jumpstart this Monday, we have a hauling-ass freight train of jam from Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band! Clocking in at nearly sixteen minutes, "Dreaming In The Non-Dream" is the lead single and title track from their forthcoming record. Forsyth recently shared with NPR that the album was recorded after the last U.S. presidential election as "a way of grappling with that event-slash-calamity" and that the title was inspired by a William S. Burroughs quote: "America is not so much a nightmare as a non-dream. The American non-dream is precisely a move to wipe the dream out of existence. The dream is a spontaneous happening and therefore dangerous to a control system set up by the non-dreamers." With the downsizing of the band to a power trio and the exodus of Nick Millevoi, Dreaming In The Non-Dream is also the first album, since 2013's The Solar Motel, with no second guitarist. "I wanted total control of the guitars on this."
