Whiner brings Glam-Soul to life in Sunnyvale April residency

Whiner are this generation’s goth kids. Their melancholic lyrics are tempered by a glam-soul sensibility, while driving drums and dream guitar hooks work to keep their songs from being too saturated in emotion. Indeed, Whiner’s unique blend of genres creates a sound centered on the strength of both not caring and caring too much. If you can’t get enough of their addictive artistry, you’re in luck. Whiner will be performing in a Sunnyvale residency every Tuesday in April, headlining shows with emerging artists. - Amanda Ogea


Cloud finds his purpose on euphoric "Two Hands Bound"

Cloud escapes into a state of blissful euphoria on "Two Hands Bound." The lavish sound singer-songwriter Tyler Taormina creates overflows with effervescence, as gossamer electronic textures and buoyant percussion hits build into a vibrant carnival of beautiful colors. But beneath the lively exterior also lies a heartfelt message: you're ultimate the architect of your own happiness, even when outside forces try to convince you otherwise. 

"Two Hands Bound" is the latest single off of Cloud's full-length Plays with Fire, which was just released on March 9 via Audio Antihero. Juan Rodríguez


Leon + the Fantastic release animated video for "Grieving Friend of a Superman"

In the new video for “Grieving Friend of a Superman” (streaming below) by the San Francisco baroque alt pop group Leon + the Fantastic, stop motion animation is used to convey an otherworldly experience. The video, directed by Japhy Riddle, follows an astronaut (played by frontman Leon Rosen) as he journeys back on Earth and is disoriented by how unrecognizable it is following advances in technology. This is the first single to be released from the upcoming debut EP Let Me Cool, which is currently available for pre-order and set to be released on May 18th. - Lilly Milman


New Nyxy Nyx LP Available for Streaming & Download

Nyxy Nyx recently shared a new full-length album, HappyLand. Wading into the soothing waters of melodic, psych-pop isolation, a spellbinding, stripped-down strangeness grabs one’s attention. However, on the other end of the spectrum, a grittier, fuzzy friction helps to shape the dynamic. That lullaby, run-ragged sound envelops in a haunting haze of comfort.


LANZ Drops "Auckland" Off Upcoming LP

LANZ, the solo project of Beirut's multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Lanz, just unveiled single “Auckland,” from upcoming LP Hofferlanz II. Revealing an "avant" approach to pop, the track features unpredictable hooks built across a framework of drum machines, and both acoustic and electric guitars. Though the new album maintains LANZ’s signature edgy style, the songwriting seems to be moving towards a more comfortably pop aesthetic with indecipherable lyrics. Make sure to check out the Cyd Charisse-inspired video for “Auckland” while waiting for the Hofferlanz II debut on April 13th.--Amanda Ogea
