Kodiak Park Got That Rock 'n' Soul Thang at KFN July 13

Kodiak Park has got that rock 'n' soul thang goin' on. In the group's debut singles, you'll hear a band building on a sound that could bring them to larger rooms. With frontman Jon Panasak's charismatic vocals and a suave-sounding backing unit, Kodiak Park is hinting that radio-friendly psych-pop is alive and well in Philly. They've already teased that a new single, "Holy Ghost," will be unveiled this evening at Kung Fu Necktie. You'll also find Miami's Heavy Drag (who I definitely am feelin'), Brooklyn's Such Hounds, and Philly's own R.R. Perkins in the mix. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, +21 - H.M. Kauffman

The Midnight Stroll Effortlessly Rock You Through Their Own 'Heartbreak Bugaloo'

Heartbreak Bugaloo (Skeleton Farm Records) marks the first collaboration of two talented artists: Aaron Behrens (Ghostland Observatory) a vocalist, and the guitarist, Jonas Wilson (Lomita, The White White Lights). Together the duo is known as The Midnight Stroll, previously 'Aaron Behren and The Midnight Stroll,' and these two artists- who have previously worked in everything from EDM to glam to bluesy indie to pop- have come out with one excellent creation of contemporary rock n’ roll this time around.

What makes this album clearly distinctive is the dramatic and emotional vocal work complimented by discordant guitars. The tunes laid out by Wilson’s heavy playing are successfully attention grabbing and allow the range of the vocals by Behrens to shoot out in different directions and play over the octaves, being especially dynamic in 'Losing My Mind' and 'Just Hang On.'

The emotional eight track album is perfectly summed up by the final track, 'Sparkle and Fade': here the rock duo adds in a piano bit with stripped vocals that eventually raise into a cathedral-filling, crescendic feel, at last expressing all that sadness you’ll have accumulated by the end of Heartbreak.

It’s quality rock music from two of Austin’s most respected, and enough to earn them Artist of the Month for June here at The Deli Austin, so listen below to ride through this emotional roller-coaster.

Oaktown Indie Mayhem Releases TV Heads Debut EP - Total Fvcker

The Oakland based record label, Oaktown Indie Mayhem has released the new EP from the experimental band, TV Heads.

After soaking up the creative influences of the Bay Area for many years previous, and marinating in Los Angeles’ vibrant scene of grungy post-punk and garage rock, ambient electronic experimentation, and cross-pollinating performance art mediums, TV Heads was ripe to begin recording Total Fvcker. The band finds it's sound in the collective experiences of the trio; arching guitar lines, gritty synths, and raw drums and bass. Galloway and Tavella mix their distinctive voices together to create lush vocal harmonies that launch into wild choruses, a'la a Jeff Buckley and Annie Clark fronted Smashing Pumpkins.

NEW TRACK: Genders - "Life is But a Dream"

A recent tug at the heart strings led Maggie Morris to write Genders newest sarcastically lovelorn track "Life is But a Dream," which premiered yesterday over at AllMusic. It shows Genders at their usual best, luring you in with incredibly relatable lyrical themes and charismatic song structure.

"Life is But a Dream" is officially releasing this Friday, with their single release show this Saturday at Bunk Bar with Divers and Times Infinity. The track peaks at their new Phone Home EP, due out soon. Listen to the track below.

Get an Immediate Shot of Adrenaline w/Cheerbleeders at Bourbon & Branch July 12

Sweet snarling vocals with a instrumental aggression that won’t ease up or back down, Cheerbleeders bring an immediate shot of adrenaline to Bourbon & Branch tonight. Unforgiving guitar shreds bulldoze the area ahead in attacking flashes, and the vocals explode in unfiltered expressions. Barriers stand little chance when the speed and force team up, rocking you into submission. Minnesota’s Jack and the Coax serve up a seductive concoction of bluesy Americana. The raunchy, retro rumble of The Up! Up! Ups! and the smooth-talking riff-fueled rock of Wild Joy wrap this billing. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 7pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita
