Ron Gallo releases new music video "Always Elsewhere"

 Ron Gallo's new song "Always Elsewhere" translates all kinds of anxiety and existential dread into a wild blend of janky guitar riffs, a drivin' drum kit, slightly absurd lyrics, and an almost exasperated vocal timbre. The combination of textures is at times so overwhelming that I wanted to press pause, but the flipside of that effect is also that you can't tear yourself away. "Always Elsewhere" is just too interesting. "No time to feel what's real" is a repeated lyric throughout the song, which becomes Gallo's battle cry, if you will. Without giving too much away- the video features the artist in a white, workman's one-piece, carrying a cardboard box labeled "SELF" in various locations. This song and video are a real treat. Ron Gallo is back from tour at the Basement East on 11/17. -Geena Kloeppel

Telefones' "Castle Factory" is a new gritty jam

 I felt myself start to head-bang in the powerhouse-intro of Telefones "Castle Rock", which says something. It's fascinating when the recorded music of a punk rock band accurately replicates what they must sound like live. This is no small feat- trying to convey the sound of a dark, sweaty venue, gritty guitars battling with the vocals and having a riff-off with the drum kit, IN HEADPHONES, is nearly impossible. Or so I thought. Telefones seems to have mastered the art of punk rock recording, so for them I'll take my hat off. Keep your ears open for their 7" record, which comes out 9/21. -Geena Kloeppel

reality something's "Life Noise" is lofi alt-rock at its finest

Aesthetically and sonically, reality something are so intentional and consistent that it almost doesn't line up with the genre: lo-fi alt rock. The band is fronted by Elena Franklin, whose vocal timbre instantly reminded me of the B-52s. reality something recorded their debut at guitarist Kingsley Brock's home studio, which gives the record the grit and fuzz characteristic of the genre, but organically. That's the thing about this band: their songs are arranged well and the instrumental textures are locked in, but it isn't because of 'studio magic,' it's because at their core, reality something are excellent musicians. Be sure to catch them live at Exit/In on 9/6. -Geena Kloeppel

SILICA bring reckless energy to Remember September Music Festival in Brockton (9.1)

In the track “Genesis” (streaming below,) Rhode Island-based alt-rockers SILICA pose the question, “What’s to lose if you aint’ got nothing?” Unsurprisingly, this lyricism, which encourages letting loose, is matched with an unbridled and reckless energy that manifests itself into a synthy pop-punk amalgamation that’s been dubbed “dance punk.” As the song proclaims, they are “uncontained” and not afraid to just give it their all. Dance along with SILICA on the North Stage at the Remember September Music Festival in Brockton, MA on September 1 at 6:45 pm. - Lilly Milman
