NJ Pop-Punk icon Mikey Erg releases solo LP + tours the US

Local pop-punk icon Mikey Erg (of NJ's The Ergs! fame) is back with a solo album entitled 'Tentative Decisions.' The man stands out in that loud and melodic scene for a lyrical talent way above the average, and for gladly joining other like-minded bands on tour and on record (his credits include Dirt Bike Annie, The Unlovables, The Dopamines, Star Fucking Hipsters, House Boat, Worriers and Weston). Mikey will spend the winter touring in support of the record, with a NYC date set for February 17 at Brooklyn Bazaar.

Joy Riding Opening for Matt Pond PA at Underground Arts Dec. 9

While we await its full-length debut, which will be coming out early next year via Black Rd Records, the quartet of Joy Riding sets up shop in an opening slot this evening at Underground Arts. The band stacks up casually relatable, episodic powerpop, the type that steadily gathers melodic steam and concentration. Then, those loose sensitive strings unite in an infectious, surprising, instrumental feat of strength, cruising as the trees race by. In support of their newly released album, Winter Lives, Matt Pond PA headlines, striking a hearth-crackling note as singer-songwriter sensibility deepens through the exploratory interlacing of vocal harmony and guiding orchestral instrumentation. The multifaceted musical settings of Austin’s Moving Panoramas are sandwiched in between, tying the familiarity of intimate melody, while shifting into the atmosphere.

New Valley Exit LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

What started out as a solo avant-garde, electro-noise project from the mind of Jeff Zeigler has now grown to a full-fledged band with the backing of Josh Meakim (A Sunny Day in GlasgowThe Fantastic Imagination) on guitar, April Harkanson (MyrriasDowntown Club) on guitar/keys/backing vocals, and Steven Urgo (The War on DrugsChris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band) on drums. Valley Exit is creating noise-pop at its finest, tiptoeing the line between inventiveness and accessibility. That is what you’ll find on Valley Exit’s debut self-titled LP, which is now available via Soft Dystopia, Zeigler’s fledgling record label. You can stream and purchase the album below, and check out our recent interview with Jeff HERE!

Mood Music: Sinless - 'Melodie'

 And here we find ourselves again. There's clearly something about Sinless that either really gets us in the mood, or is somehow just always what we need to hear. We were in the mood for their track "Cool" back in September and now, we're entirely too much in the mood for the EP that houses "Cool," titled Melodie.

Out just a few days ago, Melodie continues on in that same supernal, dream pop vein Ethereality teased us with last summer. At just four tracks, it's another tease at frontman Cor Allen's mastery of 4AD's discography, as this EP is entirely a bedroom-recorded solo effort.

Rumor has it Sinless will be releasing their first 11 track full length in 2017, but until then enjoy Melodie on this somewhat snowy morning.
