Jagged Jaw

Jagged Jaw is the new project from Bobby Lord (Gold Motel, Inspector Owl). He released his debut album, Tonight Is, back in February. The album is beautiful and introspective. Rages recently released a remix of one of my favorite tracks from the album, "NGFIO", making it into a sleepy folk banger.

CMB set to speckle Great Scott with neon on 4.25

There is something beautifully sinister and dangerous lurking underneath the surface of Casey Desmond’s latest release, Three Licks, under the moniker CMB. The Boston based electronica artist brightens up the reverb drenched scene of her city with oscillating synths and throbbing bass, oozing globs of neon with every beat. However, there is the scintillating threat of something more biting at our heels because the EP is more than just another glossy electronic composition. Bouncing between the glitchy dark ambiance of tracks like "Fade Into Nothing" and the bubbling magnetism of "I Don't Know," Three Licks is an experimental project replete with raw emotions texturized by Desmond’s  electronic production and vocal talents. Delve deeper into Desmond’s rabbit hole and catch her performing at Great Scott on April 25. - Adriana S Ballester

​Premiere: Talkie​ - Songs From the Hablas (Acoustic) + Play Great America Music Hall - 4/8

​It is always a pleasure to premiere new music. Today we are happy to share an acoustic version of the San Francisco based band, Talkie´s EP, ​Songs From the Hablas. Enjoy this well produced, acoustic album and make sure you check them out live at Great American Music Hall on April 8th with Sunrunners, Meet Me in Orbit and St. Ranger!​​

"Shortly after releasing Hablas, we were invited to play at Super Bowl City. We showed up, and there wasn't much room, nor enough juice to power all the amps. We ended up playing the set acoustically and realized it sounded rather good. A few days later, we tracked our favorites in the studio. Bang."​​​ - Talkie

Watch Rikroshi's Melancholic and Symbolism-Heavy Video for "Drug Lords"

Rikroshi is a band that seems like they get more polished in an exponential way with every new thing they put out. Recently that has included their full self-titled album that we previewed at The Deli last October, and which was fully released in early February, as well as a gripping new video for track "Drug Lords" from that release.

We've got the latter here for you today, and it is damn well-made. "Drug Lords" is heavily impressionistic and full of almost-grim symbolism that's yet somehow darkly comforting. Concentric collapsing circles, shots of weathered statues and religious symbols, and a triptych of the same image of the sun's strangely muted body sitting over the ocean (that coincides with the dramatic climbing piano climax of "Drug Lords") couple with a semi-transparent image of Bjork-influenced singer Tessa Bennetch that has her face mostly out of frame and looking away from camera as she sings, all of which is masterfully cut together for a video that combines with its song in a ideal and fitting way.

"Drug Lords" is the rare music video that takes an already-good song and amplifies its aesthetic, making it feel like this is the true version of the piece, it adds that much to it. Give it a watch below, and let it envelop you in its mood and symbols, and head over to Rikroshi's Bandcamp for more from this strong album.
