Cheap Dinosaurs Record Release Show at Boot & Saddle Oct. 18

Today, the psych/prog crew of Cheap Dinosaurs unveiled their new album, High Strangeness, and tonight, the quartet creeps into South Philly's Boot & Saddle. The band latest release navigates through a fantastical deep-forest, video-game resonating labyrinth. The pulsating beats ascribed to the combination of heavy yet precise backend-led trails and mysterious synths drive the quest toward its ultimate destination. The optimistic comfort of familiar terrain is temporarily shaken as ominous quaking tones enclose, while one proceeds deeper into the dimly lit terrain. They’ll bridge the gap between the pronounced, punk stomping of Tiny Vices and the intricately explosive, primal, post-hardcore surges of Georgia’s Cinemechanica, whom released a new self-titled album late last month. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Fritz Cook "Sings" doo-wop music to trip to, plays Sunnyvale on 10.22

Uber obscure NYC artist Fritz Cook croons cool, doo-woop-flavored acid dreams that will lull his listeners down the blithe headspace of Alice's rabbit hole. The Brooklyn-based artist, aka Michael Busse, has a set of pipes so buttery that you could just melt into them, and they're paired with instrumentals that feel both familiar and strange--maybe like a '45 that's been left out in the sun too long. Check out b-side "Tundra Rye" off of the newly released Sings streaming below. You can see Fritz live at Sunnyvale this Saturday October 22, supporting Miniature Tigers. - Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "Falling." - Instupendo

Drift ever so lovingly into the void with "Falling.", the latest single from Philly producer Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson. "I hope it reminds you of the Autumn breeze," Peterson states. You can get lost in the soundscapes of Instupendo at PhilaMOCA on Saturday, December 10, where he'll be joined on a bill that will also include Buji, Good Intent, and Haven.

Take a Listen to K A G's Powerful & Compelling Debut EP

K A G is the solo project of Katie Alice Greer, the incisive frontwoman of D.C. post-punk outfit Priests. Her album, EP A, encompasses four tracks that are disposed to lo-fi aesthetics, sonically hovering around industrial and experimental dance tunes. Though the sound is a departure from Greer’s work with Priests, K A G is an exciting batch of material that feels as precarious as it is powerful and compelling. The EP is available in digital formats online and cassettes via Priests’ label Sister Polygon Records. - Josh Kelly

Explode Into Colors' Beneficial Reunion

Portland was an entirely different place back in 2008. The music community was still an actual community not divided, nor were the skylines divided by the rooftops of newly built condos and startups. On top of all this, Explode Into Colors basically exploded into the scene, offering a sound unlike the typical "I'm sad and everyone knows it" vibe Portland was used to.

Though they never actually made it to releasing a full album, their legacy of haunted noise punk lives on as does their advocacy for all-ages spaces. Drummer Claudia Meza, who like many of us and especially ones that didn't necessarily grow up in Portland, grew up absorbing the influence of live performances. All-ages venues were once an important facet for developing creative youth and are, for the sake of Explode Into Colors dual reunion sets today, something still deserving of the music community's attention.

"It's crazy to me that Portland, which boasts such a vibrant music scene, doesn't have a proper all ages space where up and coming bands are able to grow and play," says Meza. "Every city needs an all ages space, it creates community, totally makes better musicians, and it fosters a more inclusive and varied music scene. Every adult in every local music community should feel a personal responsibility to help make all ages spaces a reality."

That's why Explode Into Colors will be playing two sets tonight at Mississippi Studios. The first one is open to everyone with Hugo Berlin and Wampire also on the bill, starting at 6pm. It's a benefit for Friends of Noise, an organization dedicated to providing a safe all-ages space and all-ages shows in Portland's various neighborhoods. 

Explode Into Colors' 9pm set with Lithics and the Ghost Ease is 21+ and sold out, with proceeds going to keeping LA's the Smell open for its diverse masses.
