Alpenglow tours + plays Rough Trade on February 19

Having been hard at work on their new LP for the past few months, Alpenglow is getting ready to stretch their wings and debut a full set of new songs in a mini tour of the Northeast. The new album, which is being produced by Sam Cohen (of The Yellowbirds), promises for an even trippier, more insightful continuation of their lonesome-traveler, psych-folk sound, drawing from the essence and experience of perhaps one too many New England winters, and translating their move to Brooklyn into audible incentives by which to live. The psych-soul underlining of Cohen’s vision will introduce only the most effectual tonal brilliance to Alpenglow’s already established soul-searching sound. The tour stops at Rough Trade on February 19, with support from Barsuk Records’ Laura Gibson and Wild Leaves . –JP Basileo

Mincemeet or Tenspeed's new EP "Waiting on Surfing Bird"

Providence producer David Harms has emerged from the local scene with some fuzzy, disjointed, and over all freaky dance music on his new release “Waiting for Surfin Bird.” Along with occasional touring partner and label mate Unicorn Hard-On, the scene is putting out some great Experiemental dance music that rejected tired build-up-drop-breaktown formula of mainstream EDM. Instead, Mincemeat or Tenspeed relies on ear-tearing rhythmic noise, and minimalistic trancelike repetition slowly evolving throughout the track. Mosh-worthy and spaced out at the same time, Something for the whole freaky family! Brooklyn-based Decoherence Records released “Waiting for Surfin Bird” in October of last year, which was an obscenely good month for New England bands. Some of the tracks can be heard here.

Immigrants Play the Lily Pad

 In a city more known for its Noise and Punk, it makes sense that hip-hop of such an elevated and noise-centric tone coagulates from the potion of the local scene. Immigrants utilize absurdist lyrics, free-associated and abstract, with production that’s way passed left-of-center. Producer Mr. Id weaves layers of freaky samples over groovy beats, that must stretch MC Theory Engine to his limits. That’s the only way I can explain Theory’s insanity.  He loads his lyrics with scientific jargon, summoning his inner Dr. Octogon, but his flow is a lazy Doom-esque lilt. I recommend checking out the whole record, but “Ding!” was onef of my personal favorites, with a beat that’s too damn slow in the best way, and lyrics from the mind of mad scientist. Their energy seemed to be bursting out of that little venue, so I can’t wait to see them upgrade and tear up a bigger spot.

Check out their Ablum “Black Dada” here

Tigers Are Bad For Horses Are Back With A New Dark Single "I.V. (Poisoned)"

 

Indie-pop duo Tigers Are Bad For Horses get a little emo in their new track called "I.V. (Poisoned)." Frontwoman Mellen (Mary-Ellen) Funke's sultry, folk vocals blend seamlessley with the progressive melody produced by percussionist Lyell Roeder. Singing "sometimes I think the venom in my veins will never leave," TABFH casts a darker cloud over the running theme from their last track "Recovery" --being let down by someone you care about. Roeder says the track is much heavier not only in tone, but in percussion. "We just really wanted to change the balance in this [track]."

The two plan to drop a 5-track EP late February and say we can expect each of their songs to stand out on their own. "They are actually pretty different from each other... even with the next ones, you'll see even different influences" comments Funke. TABFH have already played most of their EP live. They find performing their music before it's finished "informs they way [they] write." If you can't wait until the expected drop of their EP late February, catch TABFH with Eureka Birds at the Treehouse Lounge February 26th and listen to "I.V.(Poisoned)" below. --Sade A. Spence
