The Naked Tungs releases debut EP

Austin's The Naked Tungs recently released their debut EP, Hear It Calls, an intriguing blend of garage, new wave and roots rock which showcases the band's natural pop sensibility and charming lo-fi character. With subtle time signature changes and diverse instrumentation - from touches of pedalsteel guitar to lead tones reminiscent of Hendrix and The Clash - each song in the five track release has its own unique structural and tonal flavor. Hear It Calls is a promising introduction to a band with potential. Check out the title track below! - Ethan Ames

Cosmonauts play the Constellation Room June 13th

An outlier from the Burger Records' roster, normally home to garagey and surfy bands, Cosmonauts harness British rock from the '80s and '90s, and repackage those groovy sounds full of attitude in their most recent album A-OK. Citing the Kinks and Sonic Youth as their influences, the bands describes its sound as “drug-punk.” That sounds misleading, since A-OK is too clean to be punk, and too controlled to be "drug music." But it's certainly excellent party music, which - with the summer on the horizon - is all we care about. Cosmonauts will play the Constellation Room, tonight (June 13th), check out the video for their ballad "Party at Sunday,' streaming below. - Simone Gabrielli

The Sea Life to release self-titled full-length on Babe City Records

Noise-pop band The Sea Life is releasing a self-titled full-length album on May 26th, on Babe City Records. Blending the angsty vocal stylings of Win Butler and Conor Oberst with up-tempo, minor-key distortion, the D.C.-based band paint a swirling picture of depressive sentiments and full-throated screams of longing. On "Red Eyes," the lyrics suggest aversion toward success: "It's a shame /That you’re trading your passion for a paycheck." The raw power in the band's sonic approach and their energetic musicianship, however, indicate that their passion is very much a driving force on this promising release. The Sea Life is playing a record release show at Smith Public Trust in D.C. on May 26th. Check out single "Red Eyes" below! - Ethan Ames

New Track: "Building The Ark" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

Though Modern Baseball is currently on an indefinite hiatus, Jake Ewald (thankfully) continues to record and release his solo efforts under the moniker Slaughter Beach, Dog, with assistance from MoBo bassist Ian Farmer. Ewald will be dropping a new four-song EP Motorcycle.jpg on July 14 via Lame-O Records. You can take a listen to the album's lead single, "Building The Ark," below. He also has plans for a full-length release later this year, which is definitely more good news for die-hard MoBo fans. Slaughter Beach, Dog will be headlining Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, August 17, with support from Lame-O labelmate Shannon Moser. (Photo by Jess Flynn)
