Mini Meltdowns member Michelle Sullivan goes solo for new single release

Over the last fifteen years, songwriter and guitarist Michelle Sullivan has had her hand in a bowl full of Nashville indie bands, including Sherbert, TV Sisters, and Mini Meltdowns, the latter of whom just released their latest EP in April. Now Sullivan plans to release her first record, Expiration Date, under her own name in early 2019. The first releases from her upcoming debut -- singles "Little Pink Room" and "Psychopharmacology" -- feature Sullivan's backing band The All-Night Boys, who mash indie rock with brash protopunk and a bit of folk to produce a tight, gritty sound. Listen to them both below, and stay tuned for more word on the release of Expiration Date. - Will Sisskind

Sean McVerry plays with consumerism in his new video "Burning Out"

You’d be hard pressed to find a music video that’s as anxiety-driven as Sean McVerry’s recently released “Burning Out,” a narrative short film of sorts that explores what happens when everything goes completely wrong. Shot as a side-by-side comparison over the course of a day, “Burning” shows several key moments, contrasting positive outcomes with negative ones, with the latter sequence of events coalescing with McVerry driving away in a Hyundai from an angry mob. The final moments frame the music video as a tongue-in-cheek commercial for Hyundai itself, a parody of the solutions offered by consumer goods to life’s problems. Against the humor of these video, the track itself is bombastic synth pop jam, complete with percussive electronic beats and '80s influenced textures; these elements all heighten the drama of McVerry’s lyrics and vocal performance, contributing to a final output that is as explosive as it is perfectly weird.

McVerry will perform at Rockwood Music Hall on December 12th. Watch the video for "Burning Out" below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Jesse McFadden

New Music Video: "Nothing Is Real" - Eric Slick

“A song cycle about the first Jewish American matador, Sidney Franklin,” Bullfighter, the forthcoming EP from Eric Slick, was co-produced by Michael Johnson (Ape School), and is slated for release via Boiled Records on January 18. Strings, piano, and percussion collide in an ominous illusion, breaking reality on its lead single, “Nothing Is Real”. Those menacing tones are realized in the song’s video, which was animated and directed by Slick. There’s a dramatic grace to the imagery, with its impending implications hanging in the balance, seen from various angles. You can catch Eric Slick at Johnny Brenda's on Sunday, January 6, as part of a lineup that also includes Mdou Moctar and Skyler Skjelset.

Huck's blends hazy slacker rock with bedroom pop + plays Mercury on NYE

Huck’s music is a product of the internet era. Brooklyn musician John Wolfe blends woozy slacker rock with the bedroom beats of SoundCloud in a way once unexpected but increasingly popular among DIY producers. His latest track “Scrimmage” sees Mac Demarco-style synths with tight production and the syrupy soft rap of Sophie Meiers. Elsewhere Huck leans into melodic guitar (“Summer Lovin’”) and stuttering electronica (“Without You”). A sort of slight eclecticism that merges styles moving with parallels. You can catch Huck live opening for Blac Rabbit at Mercury Lounge on December 30 or joining Goth Babe, B.Miles, and Pom Pom Squad at Baby’s All Right on January 30. Listen to "Scrimmage" below. – Cameron Carr
