Video Premiere: Nine Pound Shadow - Tell Me Why

We're always pleased to premiere new Bay Area music! The Bay Area based band, Nine Pound Shadow has released a brand music video entitled, Tell Me Why. The band is comprised of brothers, Breandain and Christopher Langlois who create a very California sort of sound, one whose lineage and mythology goes as far back as, well, a family tree. Tell Me Why hinges on orchestral piano chords before building into a chantable refrain. This track is haunting and touching to no end.

Nine Pound Shadow will perform live in San Francisco at The Independent on February 21st.

Take a listen and make sure you support local artists!

New Track: "Greyhound" (Kississippi Cover) - Tombo Crush

Tombo Crush puts an airy, ghostly spin on their rendition of Kississippi's "Greyhound". The track was recorded for Heart Hitter Vol. 1, a covers compilation that will give 100% of its proceeds to The Trevor Project, "the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24." Your donation will go towards running suicide-prevention hotlines, text lines, training/workshops, and community centers. You can take a listen to the rest of the compilation HERE, and give what you can.

New Track: "Cross That Line" - Coal Mine Canaries

"Cross That Line," the closing song on Coal Mine Canaries newly released EP We Poor Devils, leaves a lasting impression. The dreamy sparkle of xylophone steps into the soulful, inebriated sway. The song takes on the appeal of an evening shared with a close group or significant other, when everyone reaches that slightly tired but united buzz, thus allowing his or her exterior guard or pretension to drop and embrace the moment. Lyrically describing an unfortunate misstep, the track retains an inherent but slightly mournful fondness.

Best of New England Indie Rock/Pop Artist: Tall Teenagers, Mokita, XR Tabs

Deli Readers!

The results are in for our year-end Best Emerging New England Indie Rock Artist poll.  The popular vote has elected Tall Teenagers from Providence, RI as our 2016 Deli Readers' champions for the Indie Rock/Pop category.  They are a name we've been hearing a lot this past year and we are excited to see what 2017 has in store for them.  We would also like to give a shout-out to Boston garage-rockers Mokita for giving them a run for their money.

In addition, the points accumulated through votes cast by our panel of jurors, and a third position in the readers' poll, crowned XR Tabs and their brand of experimental indie-pop as the Best of New England in this category. Check out their new single "Wet Fire for Edison the Unclean" and see what all the hype is about.

As always, we'd like to thank all of our artists, jurors, and readers for participating in this year's polls.  Stay tuned and vote for all of our remaining genre polls! -Brian Varneke

Past Haunts Unites PDX and LA at the Lovecraft

Specializing in the dark swells of rock music's subgenres, Past Haunts has given XRAY.fm listeners the best in everything from krautrock to coldwave every Monday for the last four years. They've hosted some pretty good live shows in their day and their first one of the year is another one to add to the list. Past Haunts is taking over Lovecraft on Friday by joining Portland's Tender Age with LA's Drab Majesty, and Soft Metals acting as the artist fulcrum between the two cities.

The slo-fi pop of Tender Age is the perfect sound to fully represent the drizzly minimalism of the Rose City. All three of their releases (comprised of two 7" and an EP) eptiomize noisy soundscapes that are more than easy to get immersed in and this show couldn't be a better way for them to ring in 2017 with.

Electronic duo Soft Metals have roots here in the Pacific Northwest and SoCal, with their synthesizer sounds indicative of our darkwave scene as well as what's going on in some of those LA clubs. Rumor has it they're working some new material, exciting Soft Metals fans who have been craving another release following 2013's Lenses. Rounded out by the not so drab coldwave of Drab Majesty and this turns into another delightfully dark night at the Lovecraft
