PWRHAUS New Single, Upcoming Album

Some of your favorite local tracks may be from Anthony Schatz, but you would never know it. He's been recording under the guise of anonymity for years, with some of his albums secretly reaching heights of critical acclaim and maximum enjoyment, including from popular musicians like Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold. While those in the scene may know his face from the house shows he's thrown, everyone else will soon know that face due to his upcoming new album, due out on February 3rd.

Under the moniker PWRHAUS (or sometimes, Tonality Star), Schatz's tender concoction of ethereal dreampop, retro Motown soul and indie, topped with a witty cheekiness, is undeniably catchy. 

The newest single to come off the release, "Heartbeat," is a lo-fi reworking of a traditional love song as far as the ear can make out of the slightly droned out but definite head-bobbing beat. You can experience this track live along with the rest of the album, at his visual album release on the 8th at Holocene. Secrets, the solo project of Aaron Chapman from Nurses, and Schaus will also be a part of the soulfully dreamy fun. Take a peek at "Heartbeat" below.

Slaptop Releases New Music Video - Another Life (feat. Geneva White)

We're excited for you to check out Slaptop's new music video for his singer, Another Life (feat. Geneva White).

 

San-Francisco producer Slaptop revealed the plans for a debut artist album, With You, due out March 3rd, 2017 via his own newly founded label Sunsquad Records. So far, fans have been treated to two cuts from the project- "Passenger" a magnetic indie-dance cut co-signed by The Magician for his label Potion Records, and "I Try," a dance-pop cross over single featuring a mesmerizing vocal line from Olivia Florentino.

Taking us deeper into the upcoming LP, Slaptop has now released the third album single, "Another Life." Featuring vocalist Geneva White, "Another Life" comes to fruition thanks to hypnotic four-on-the-floor rhythms, deep synth, a sub quaking bassline, and finally a set of unforgettable lyrics that are sure to be lodged in your brain long after the tracks final beats. A strong indicator of what's to come on the remainder of the album, "Another Life," proves to be an enigmatic dance track ideal for peak hour club play.

Mood Music: Icarus The Owl - "A Thousand Miles (Vanessa Carlton Cover)"

If you were anything like most of the mid-2000's Myspace crowd, it's incredibly likely you got down with all those Punk Goes... compilations. There was Punk Goes Acoustic and Punk Goes Crunk (which was of course as hilariously good as it sounds), but Punk Goes Pop definitely gave them both a run for their money. The best of the scene tried their hand at covering songs from the top of the pop charts, but since the last volume of it came out in 2014, we haven't gotten the same pop punk fulfillment.

Thank you, Icarus The Owl, and your cover of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" for filling that void.

Premiering via Alternative Press a little over a week ago, Icarus The Owl's cover of this piano playing staple features the classic technical drumming and mastered guitar playing we usually see from the band, along with some three part harmonies that really bring the cover to life.

On taking on the song, the band says: "This song is timeless to us and we've always jokingly played the main riff while sound checking on stage. We decided it was time to do a proper cover. Also the scene in White Chicks."

That movie, yes. All of it, yes. Give it a listen below.

Though it technically started last night, many special guests will be joining in on the dark psych folk fun, led by the beautiful swoon of Laura Hopkins.

Jetlag from their recent UK tour won't stop this trio from giving it all they've got for the rest of the week, with local favorites like Nathan Baumgartner of And And And, Dim Wit, Sweeping Exits, Cat Hoch, and Bryson Cone aiding in the excitement. 

See the flyer above for a breakdown of each night's LPDP pairings. Each night is free, 21+ and starts at 7pm so if you're gearing up to head out for the night, stop by Al's Den and see them tonight with Haley Heynderickx.
