Star Club bring a true "Nightmare" to life

Back when the weather and spirits alike were a bit brighter, we shared the first music video from art-wavers Star Club called "Saturday Night," along with a deeper look into the makes of the band and their late summer album Sixth Avenue Motel. We're now pleased to share the latest to come from the album, a music video for the smoothly loungy track "Nightmare."

Monochrome and wonderfully shot, the video for "Nightmare" creatively evokes the horror of how nightmares can feel so much like reality. In it, vocalist/guitarist Nate Lown is somewhat the cool, cornfield narrator hanging back as bassist Marcus Pizotchi is kidnapped and taken to a desolate location where some procedures are performed on him. If you've ever dreamt of some sort of Taken-meets-Saw situation the thought of this actually happening is terrifying, but at least Star Club make it look moody and cool.

See Star Club perform "Nightmare" and other songs off of Sixth Avenue Motel tomorrow headlining the Turn Turn Turn with a debut set from Martha Stax (members of Star Club, Rare Diagram, Ancient Elk and more), Wave Action and Oort. Also, send some birthday love to Pizotchi.

Weekend Warrior, November 24 - 26

This Sunday, a congregation heads to the First Unitarian Church, celebrating the bounty of beautiful music that local imprint Lame-O Records has curated in its first 5 years. Jake Ewald’s Slaughter Beach, Dog creates a sense of melodic ease, whilst working through the humbling hurdles of day-to-day living, via thoughtful perspectives. Cutting directly to the core of emotions with songwriting spun out of sincerity, Shannen Moser establishes an inviting folk proximity, drawing one in with blankets of relatable harmonies that ache and simultaneously provide room to breathe and process. Fuzzily rekindling mementos of the past with a clean-slated set of eyes, Cherry is freshly familiar, while No Thank You brings the tangle of guttural pensions to the surface, demonstrating a cathartic grit. They'll also be pre-partying in the Side Chapel with a pop-up acoustic show that will feature "Lame-O and friends". Congrats to Eric Osman and the Lame-O family! – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Mockingbird" - Operation Soundtrack

“Mockingbird” closes out The Friday Matinee, a new concept EP from Operation Soundtrack. Released on the anniversary of JFK's assassination, the song weaves in a plethora of sound clips, creating a multifaceted, genre-bending plot. It’s an intriguing, playful approach to musical storytelling. At the same time, catching all the cues may take a few spins, so be it.

New Gorgeous Porch LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Baby’s First Strawberry is the latest full-length album from Gorgeous Porch, a.k.a. Chris Wood (Grimace Federation, Orbit to Leslie), and boy, does it sure taste sweet! Enchanting, ethereal vocals glide over the groove-generating combination of keys, bass and percussion. Cultivating a cruising sense of calm, within a slightly space-age discovery meets devotional dance floor vibe, there’s a magnetism to these jams. Step inside the cosmic cathedral, and escape all your worries in these trying times.

Debut Stoops EP Available for Streaming & Download

Kidhood, the debut EP from Stoops, was co-produced with Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, Tremellow), who also recently worked on The Districts' latest LP Popular Manipulations. Warping keys and a rhythmic bass, "Flashlight" shines through the darkness with its existential love song sound, while “Loser Denial” wants to break loose from its opening, but you get a sense that its protagonist feels trapped. There’s a tight, melodic, storytelling quality with a hint of instrumental force that makes one wonder where the next recordings will go.
