Weekend Warrior, November 18 - 20

From the start, in this case - the opening set, Mercury Girls deliver crystalline compositions that appear ready to break loose in precise, instrumental strides as the steady, percussive spring clears a path for the fiery/jangly hybrid of guitar, which at times, forges a path with melting precision and at others, cruises along in a casual, determined pace. All the while, an intricate feathery blend of endearing, elegant vocals cascades among the crisp mountainous air. This evening, Mercury Girls will be leading the way to emotively-fueled Missouri outfit Foxing. Melding refined melody and raw expression, Balance and Composure completes this night at the former Spaghetti Warehouse. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8:30pm, $20, All Ages - Michael Colavita

A slacking all Brooklyn bill at Shea Stadium tomorrow (11.18) with Peaer, Pupppy, Bethlehem Steel and Cadet Kelly

We live in an era full of paradoxes, and the one we stumbled upon today is that in the most hectic city in the US (NYC) an awful lot of music made by caucasian artists is - one way or another - flirting with the concept of slacking. For those in the mood, tomorrow (11.19) four local bands will bring their own version of slack rock to the Shea Stadium's stage. Peaer (pictured) is a rotating lineup of musicians led by Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns); their recent self titled album slacks in very interesting and original ways, mostly through a selection of mid to down tempos, introducing elements foreign to the genre like post rock and math rock. Pupppy (Deli NYC Record of the Month in the summer of 2015) has a folkier and more lyrical approach, while openers Bethlehem Steel and Cadet Kelly both dwell in fast paced dreaminess.

Common Souls release intimate new single "Roots//Habit"

Common Souls, a self proclaimed ESM (electronic sad music) duo, just released their newest single off of their latest EP, Pyramids. The single, “Roots//Habit”, is a love song so organic and raw you’d swear it was written just for you (and for one of you out there, it probably is). The pure talent Ryan Yoo and Nick Velez have is equivalent to an entire studio production, with sound producers, mixers, band members, etc. But they do it alone and the amount of soul and vibrant energy the two produce is astonishing. Pyramids creates a dynamic, electronic, spellbinding musical experience that captures the emotion in music most artists struggle to find. Common Souls might just be the secret love child of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, and I am definitely okay with that. - Kayla Hay

New Track: "Under The Rug" - Steady Hands

Steady Hands will release a double album that includes their first four EPs. However, on Rude Boys of Bar Rock, which will be released on December 9 via Lame-O Records, you'll also find a brand new single. “Under The Rug” captures a folk-punk sense of yearning, as strolling acoustic guitar is reinforced by momentous backend that leads the way to the surging,  energetic release of electric guitar. Steady Hands is slated to appear at Ortlieb's on December 4, along with Thin Lips, Cold Climb It, and The Lame-O’s.
