New Music Video: "You're Silver" - Nightlands

Nightlands, a.k.a. Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs), recently released a new album, I Can Feel the Night Around Me, via Western Vinyl. Cruising through the streets with a behind-the-wheel and then an overhead, coastal viewpoint, the video for “You’re Silver," which was co-directed by Daniel Fox and Matthew Marchlewski, captures the smooth intensity of the surrounding environment. Soothing, soulful vocals layer as the gentle, gliding groove coasts those harmonies into gear. Nightlands will headline a bill on Saturday, May 27 at Johnny Brenda's, and will be supported by The Dove & The Wolf and The Building.

Pilot Violet celebrates release of 'Nite Farm' EP at Nublu on 5/31

The music found on Pilot Violet's new EP, "Nite Farm" is a well produced homage and revisit to the more soulful synthpop of the 80's. Each track on the seven-song project blends that era's simple synth patterns and beats with the cinematic vocals found in recent pop acts like CHRVCHES and The XX. On tracks like "Ordinary Day" the instrumentals are skimmed to their essentials, which serves as a nice contrast to the impassioned and emphatic vocals. Pilot Violet has a fresh sound, not because of its individual, recognizable components, but because of the inventive ways they are sewn together. You can listen to "Ordinary Day" below, and catch their new project live at Nublu on 5/31. – Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Thomas Crystal LP Available for Streaming & Download

Swells is the full-length debut from Work Drugs's Thomas Crystal, and will be officially released on May 19. Soaking in the sunshine and sea breeze, one is whimsically transported onto an island or beach setting. However, while situated in those favorable conditions, the collection lyrically describes emotive tales of love and loss. Step into the cool evening sand, and reflect in the smooth wave.

Soccer Mommy Releases New Single "Out Worn," Plays Baby's All Right June 6th

Not only Soccer Mommy's name is striking - her music is really something else. Her new single "Out Worn" demonstrates that sweet combination of maturity and innocence, with a lot of lyrical depth but still not taking herself too seriously. Sophie Allison is comfortably grounded in her songs; the lo-fi vocal processing is soothing and the whole thing feels like a real musical treat. She's releasing a mini-album called "Collection," out August 4th on Fat Possum after a string of self-releases. Soccer Mommy is on tour with Slow Dancer this summer; catch her live at Baby's (June 6th) and Mercury Lounge (June 7th). - Geena Kloeppel
