Swoon Lake releases new EP, plays The Glove on 5.25.

Brooklyn's very own Swoon Lake have bred a new strand of indie music: "ghost folk." The band's own description of their music is peculiar yet accurate; there is an aura of mystery about their tracks, the ambient synths and choral harmonies on their newest song "Bloom" seemingly glide right through you. Grounding elements are the lead vocals and certain electric guitar rhythms; there's seldomly a full drum kit to speak of, but sometimes, like a friendly giant, the bump of the kick drum surfaces from below. Swoon Lake's new self-titled EP is out on Friday, catch their release show on 5.25 at The Glove in Brooklyn. - Geena Kloeppel

From the digital submissions: Ryan Wu's stripped down sound

There’s more to Ryan Wu than meets the eye (and the ear). With debut EP ‘Wutasia,’ the multi-instrumentalist perfectly encompasses the experience of young adulthood through his stripped down vocals, the twang of his guitar, and plainly honest lyrics (“Changing thoughts can't seem to go away / Not a thing stays the same” - he sings in opener 'Changing,' a track that addresses the shifting friendships and loneliness Ryan experienced during the writing process). The low fidelity of the record gives the project a timeless sound, that blends well with Wu's whimsical vocals, whose tone and melody are at times reminiscent of psychedelic genius Syd Barrett. - Lilly Milman

Cameo: More than just a free monthly party in Los Angeles

Through the enduring chatter of collective club nights and warehouse afterhours, the monthly installation Cameo—spun together by Sophia Kuhn, Isaac Treece, and Matt Dell—is among the newcomer parties catching waves for its expansive tastes and deep cuts. Their February inauguration event caught fire at the dim-lit General Lee's tucked inside Gin Ling Way, an alley known for its high-end lowbrow galleries and low-end highbrow parties. And despite being in its infancy—the collective is just getting a third show under its belt—Cameo’s sets by past selectors like SWISHA, Swan Meat, and MARAL have already cemented a reputation for bringing diverse and irresistible music to the greying quietude of Chinatown, crossing through territories of pop, experimental, ambient, jungle, 90s freestyle UK bass, dembow, footwork, bailefunk, and kuduro. For the jaded post-psych youth and the displaced club kids, it’s a godsend, but for the organizers and the artists, it’s just a free weeknight party.

This Wednesday, Cameo’s third free pop-up arrives to the Grand Star Jazz Club with Mess Kid, Helikonia, Habibiboi, E**N (Chicago), and a special b2b set with Matthew and Bapari (moon casual, Laza Records), with live visual accompaniments by Nick Zhu, Tea Strazicic, and Camille Lacadee.

Suss it out and watch for their collaboration with labels Juke Bounce Werk and Mall Music Inc. featuring DJ Paypal, DJ Orange Julius, and DJ Mastercard at UNION on 6/29. - Ryan Mo, flyer by Caleb Ali Miller

Vikesh Kapoor releases new track "Down By The River"

Vikesh Kapoor has his mastery of acoustic folk down to a science. For the last three years, the Pennsylvania transplant took to Portland's usual grey skies smoothly in the further development of his songwriting and musicianship. Kind of like Portland's own Iron & Wine, his music progresses in a similar manner to the beverage, only getting better and better as it ages with time.

"Down By The River" is the newest track to come from Kapoor. It's beautiful in its simplicity, with Kapoor's vocal delivery and strumming gently guiding the listener throughout the song. It's a track perfect for a summer evening drive or being stuck inside all day watching the rain fall.

Vikesh Kapoor is officially dropping the single tonight at his show at the Beacon Sound, with accompanying sets from Haley Heynderickx and Claire Puckett of the Austin, Tx orchestral indie band Mother Falcon. The all-ages show starts at 8pm and is just $10.
