Sharks In The Deep End's First Single is New Wave Dance-Pop Goodness

Sharks In The Deep End is an Austin quintet with a uniquely developed sound that melds jilted New Wave vocals with infectious dance-pop, and they’re currently gearing up to release their debut LP Killin Machine (April 22). The first single off of that debut album is called “Shadows In The Sunset,” and it’s a smart fusion of eclectic influences that rattles along to the urgent warble of vocalist Tucker Jameson. The secret weapon of Sharks In The Deep End is the pounding punk influence that adds backbone to the pop melodies and doesn’t allow the listener to become complacent for a second. If the full Killin Machine album proves to have the same alchemy as Sharks In The Deep End’s first single, then it should be a special debut. Catch the single below, and if you see this today (February 18), you can get an eyeful of these guys at their very first show ever tonight at 8pm at Studio C.

Poly announces full-length "Let's Have an Adventure" on yk records

We're going on four years since Poly released their one and only EP. With its pink and blue bouncy-lettered cover that bled right through to the neon pink vinyl and the sounds within, it was not only strikingly well-composed and just the right kind of twee, but it was outright precious. For a while, it looked like that might be all we'd get to hear of Poly's style of jazzy trad-pop. But woe to those of you who take pride in your collection of obscure one-off 45's, and bountiful joy to the rest of us; Poly has announced a proper full-length. Plenty has changed in four years but, aside from adding some instruments to the repertoire of their three-piece lineup, Poly's sound has remained sturdy as a rock—a cuddly rock, one that giggles when you squeeze it.

"Let's Have an Adventure" is due out on March 26 courtesy of yk records, purveyors of some of the highest-quality physical releases around. Preorders are up now and, yes, you absolutely do want a confetti-colored vinyl to add to your collection. -Austin Phy

Pastel Ghost leaves SF for Brooklyn, plays SXSW

Brainchild of programmer Vivian Moon, who recently relocated from the SF Bay Area to Brooklyn, Pastel Ghost remind us how psychedelia slowly emerged as an important influence in the electronic sound of the '80s, opening the door to the lush dream pop of Cocteau Twins and to My Bloody Valentine's shoegazer sound. The band's electro cover of MBV's 'When You Sleep' sounds like a declaration of intents: shoegazer music where synths trump guitars. Debut LP 'Abyss,' released in early 2015, accomplishes this objective with flair, keeping things interesting with catchy melodies buried in reverb, and showcasing a production that - within a uniform sound - expertly manages sonic variations. If you are heading to SXSW in March, you'll get a chance to see Pastel Ghost there.

Premiere: Abbot Kinney - It's the Middle of the Night + Upcoming EP

The San Francisco based rock band, Abbot Kinney has been kind enough to share a new song with you through our wonderful music blog portal! Abbot Kinney has been consistently putting out great music and their new song, It's the Middle of the Night is leading us all towards the official release of Abbot Kinney's upcoming EP, The Night which is due out on April 29th. The Night's album release party will take place the same night at Bottom of the Hill as Abbot Kinney will celebrate by opening for Panic is Perfect!

Take a listen to It's the Middle of the Night and we'll continue to keep you posted on the release of the full EP, The Night!

You can pre-order the album at http://www.abbotkinney.com.

Abbot Kinney is a rock band that thrives on big vocal hooks, a heavy, intricate rhythm section and an ambitiously grand scope, and while lead singer-songwriter Jared Swanson was certainly influenced by the “alternative” label of yesterday, his music wholly belongs to the 21st century. The group’s new EP The Night not only challenges the listener’s conception of what an indie rock song can sound like in a scaled-down, irony-charged modern music scene; it also represents a sonic evolutionary step forward.
