From the digital submissions: Jack Labbe's tender Americana

When it comes to the New England Americana of Jack Labbe, there is a lot more than meets the eye. For example, his newest release, How to Behave Around Horses, comes with footnotes that, quite literally, teach you about horse etiquette. Meanwhile, his lyrics focus on past relationships. When combined, these two themes work well together, providing a unique approach to future relationships. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Paris Parks at Bennington College (where Labbe himself attends) the production of this EP is masterful—it’s intimate, warm, tender. Listening to this EP is like being in a room with Labbe; no background noise, no outside forces, just the serene picking of his guitar. - Lilly Milman

Old Table wants to save the environment and make rock music

Old Table may be the most charming punk band from Tuckahoe, New York. They may also be the only band from Tuckahoe, New York. Despite that, the music coming from this Tri-State Area group is no less charming from their lack of peers. Their accessible, folk-rock-tinged songs strongly recall the friendly sounds of The Beets and The Lentils. Despite their domestic name and homely-DIY style, Old Table shouldn’t be mistaken for a band playing it safe. Recent single, "Co-Own and Operate Your Locate Supermaket NOW!," is a politically-charged yet catchy folk song that brings a welcome appreciation for twee punk and classic protest music. It doesn't hurt that it’s also backed by almost 10 years of even more experimental releases. You may now just be meeting Old Table, but you should see them as a childhood friend, ready to sit you down for dinner and give you some well-meaning, weird advice. Listen to their single below. -Allie Miller

New Mattress Food Album Available for Streaming & Download

Sami Rahman, a.k.a. Mattress Food, recently dropped his "new" album, Cryola!. Faling in a lo-fi, bedroom-folk proximity with soaring/warping psych elements peppered in places, the collection of songs initially sounds simple, but negotiates intriguing territory. A largely familiar acoustic strumming backdrop is slightly shaken off its personal axis. Rahman shared, "So these songs have been kicking around my hard-drive for a few years, and I would like SOMEONE to hear them before, inevitably, my death." Please grant a dying man his final request. ;-)

The Styrofoam Winos bring dynamic alt-folk to Betty's Grill 7.25

Nashville’s The Styrofoam Winos are not a typical band—the three-piece describe themselves as a sort of revolving door of projects. Each member is a songwriter with their own projects, and they alternate between leading the bands live show. Made up of Lou Turner, Trevor Nikrant, and Joe Kenkel, the band is constantly shapeshifting between sounds, styles, and instruments. The Styrofoam Winos are very much a live band, but the band is also alive; it’s dynamic and difficult to pin down, which is why it’s so important to see them play in person. Their next show is tonight at 9 pm at Betty’s Grill, and they will be playing again on August 26th with Crave On at The End. - Lilly Milman
