CROWN LANDS - "MANTRA VIDEO

Crown Lands are a 2 piece rock duo from Oshawa. They have some definite White Stripe influences with their bluesy guitar riffs and dirty vocals but they separate themselves with their individual styles. The drummer rips and sings at the same time while the guitar player also rocks a moog bass pedal with his foot so he keeps it groovy while shredding. Here's their video for "Mantra". Keep your ears open for more from Crown Lands. - Kris Gies

New Self-released Restorations Single Available for Streaming & Purchase

Restorations have a manner of creating multifaceted songs that dig their heels in a personal manner and then branch outward. The group has self-released a new single “See/Sea,” produced by Jonathan Low. The songs continue in that literary, resounding lyrical tradition, booming into Americana-flavored rockin' anthems. Restorations plan to continue on releasing in this manner for the near future so make sure to pay it forward. Catch them live at The Foundry on Thursday, August 18 for the Red Bull Sound Select showcase with Thrills and Mumblr!

Listen to "Room", the newest single from shoegazers SHEER

Simi Valley shoegazers SHEER are back with their latest single "Room", their first since their debut album Uneasy last November. The captivating guitar line that runs throughout the song is enough on its own to make this a stand-out track in the band's discography. Gina Almaguer's vocals are as ethereal and lethargic as ever, a beautiful contrast with the relentless assault of guitars. "Room" is an excellent reminder that SHEER are one of the best modern shoegaze bands in the game.

"Room" will be pressed on a made-to-order lathe 7", available to purchase until August 4th. - Justin Ashby

Scott Hirsch Celebrates Record Release Show - 8/5

After many years spent as a steadfast and inventive collaborator—not only playing bass and producing four albums with Hiss Golden Messenger, but in large part forging that band’s sonic signature—multi­instrumentalist, recordist, and audio engineer Scott Hirsch has finally made a solo album, and it’s called Blue Rider Songs.

To describe Blue Rider Songs as cinematic is almost too easy, considering Hirsch’s acclaimed work as a film sound designer, but there are moments here (like “Raga of the Sea”) that remind me of what Ry Cooder’s Paris, Texas soundtrack might have sounded like if it was recorded in 2016; there is a similar sense of Western scale and desert longing. But what is most interesting about the album is not any one setting or voice, but rather the illimitable, in­between spaces it traverses, the blue highways it rides between various traditions and tangents of North American vernacular music and the various nodes of Hirsch’s long and accomplished musical practice.

Scott is playing his record release show at The Lost Church in San Francisco on August 5th.

Venus Be Fest 2016 at The Pharmacy July 31

One could rest up and ease into the forthcoming week, or one could venture to The Pharmacy this afternoon as Venus Be Records celebrates one year of existence. Among the acts slated for this daylong affair are Roof Doctor, whose latest EP My Band feels peacefully calm as it washes over. You'll also find the boom and bust garage-pop of Line Leader. The incisive, internal, somewhat haunting, folksy momentum of Curtis Cooper ropes one in, while marinated in personal grit, with the touch of transferable energy, The Chelsea Kills. These are among some of the litany of fine acts set to perform today in South Philly. Aside from the ceaseless billing, compilation cassettes will be available as well. Tickets are limited, so get them while they’re hot. The Pharmacy, 1300/02 S. 18th St., 11am, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
