New Music Video: "V" - Coughy

The combination of Andy Molholt (Laser Background, Speedy Ortiz) and Julian Fader (Ava Luna), now known as Coughy, is slated to release its new album, Ocean Hug, on March 29 via Joyful Noise. The band recently shared a video for its lead single “V,” which was animated/directed by John Andrews. The footage elicits the nostalgic memories of reading The Three Little Pigs, with a playful somewhat creepy musical twist. The blown-out track appears as an acknowledgement by its narrator, who wants to work through the issues in a relationship rather than creating distance. You can catch the Brooklyn/Philly duo performing at Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, April 18 and Baby's All Right on Sunday, April 21.

Pacer - Bangin' New Shoegaze Track, Monarch Tavern 03.29

Rock n’ roll shoegazers Pacer have just released a brand new single. “Bangers” is a bangin’ track with a straight ahead rhythm that’ll make you nod your head to the beat immediately. It reminds me of the band Broncho but with clearer vocals. It’s a night time driving song that you’ll be singing along to by the final chorus. Pacer plays the Monarch Tavern on March 29th alongside The Good Palms (Australia), The Effens and Bad River. – Kris Gies

Haulm craft brooding, minimal synthpop on "Posture," play SXSW

Posture, the sophomore EP by Brooklyn's atmospheric synthpop duo Haulm, features an aged desert landscape contained within a thick white border. It’s a perfect fit for the brooding, dark, and spartan work laid down over the release’s five tracks; one can almost picture an unknown beast slouching from the sandy landscape against the dissonant keys of Reed Kackley, as JT Norton’s distant, almost fugue-state vocals weaves in and out. It’s an EP oozing with atmosphere that’s curated using relatively few musical elements, and speaks volumes to Haulm’s penchant for fine tuning sparse synths and the human voice into engaging, mysterious soundscapes.

You can catch Haulm at SXSW on March 12th and 15th - until then, stream Posture below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)





Ziemba invites listeners to to utopia with concept album Ardis, 04.04/ 06.06

Most bands chose to include a visual element with a new release, but while it's normal to expect album artwork or a music video, few would also expect to receive a scented candle as a part of the package. Rene Zladzyk of Ziemba delivers all three items with her project Ardis, an all encompassing "brain-pop" electronic project that imagines a futuristic utopia, complete with fragrance to match. Drawing on her own interest in feminist geography (and the sound of classic Brian Eno albums from the mid '70s), Zladzyk beckons listeners into the fully realized world of Ardis, but the songs themselves reveal that not all is as it seems, in paradise. Instead, the tracks reflect back on our world, illuminating the faults of Earth in contrast to what could be. The Ardis project is a triage - part one was released on February 12th, with parts two and three to follow on April 4th and June 6th. Check out the first installment, and the world of Ardis, below. - Sunny Betz

CLAVVS plays SXSW + celebrates EP release at the Knit on 03.29

The Brooklyn dream-pop duo known as CLAVVS has always had their feet squarely planted in the realm of electronic soul-pop. Swaying soundscapes and luscious vocals were synthesized into a potent formula. Yet with this recent run of new singles to promote their upcoming EP No Saviors, the pair have cracked open new patterns to make their distinct ideas sound infinitely more versatile. Lay Back adds a baroque flourish (reminiscent of some Tricky's best ideas) that crashes down like a waterfall of strings, while the title track (streaming below) bursts with polyrhythms and self-assured brashness. Retaining their hazy aura and breaking out of the dream pop bubble with exuberance is a balancing act that CLAVVS pulls off with the utmost ease. - Tucker Pennington
