Leopold and His Fiction Expose Inner Turmoil in Video For "I'm Caving In"

 Daniel Leopold has come to the existential crossroads that nearly every musician has had to confront at some point in their journey- whether to continue pursuing musical aspirations or to stick the proverbial "fork in it". The front man of Leopold and His Fiction wrote the new single "I'm Caving In" at a time when continuing to play music was brought into question. The saturated lighting, swirls of ethereal colors, and out-of-focus shots in the music video reflect the turmoil and indecision in the song's lyrcis. Self-reflection also emerges as a dominant theme, as Daniel is shown quiically staring at different versions of himself playing music on outdated televisions. Success is rarely found without a healthy dose of adversity, and Leopold and His Fiction seem to have conquered their demons, at least for now, as they prepare to release their fourth album, Darling Destroyer, on January 20th, 2017.

Queen Jesus Record Release Show at The Storefront Nov. 10

The quintet of Queen Jesus celebrates their sophomore release, Tar Ranch, this evening at the Storefront. Step into the subdued, slow-burning songs nestled in a semi-psych-folk cabin. Slide guitar wafts over the cozy compact backend groove, and the heady conscious reflections of vocals that stickily expand in harmony. Maintaining that seductive somber state, the duo of Zack Robbins (Superheaven) & Josh Mackie (Idiot Forever), a.k.a. DARK MTNS, bathe in brisk but refreshing waters. Nina Ryser (of Palberta) shifts the perspective with the quirky, looming twists of a dream in discovery, and steaming from strength, the momentous songs of Madalean Gauze complete this billing. The Storefront, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Summer Underground vs. post 2016 election alienation

NYC duo Summer Underground released their endearing full-length album More Than a Friend, Less Than a Lover over the past summer, but their music feels appropriately therapeutic in these strange days of November, when many of us are wondering if their neighbors have any human feelings. Single "Back to Chicago" is a charming track that embodies the power of simplicity and its potential to stir up emotion. Through their poetic and intimate lyrics, Chrissy Sandman and Grant Carey's delicate, harmonized vocals evoke the image of a couple experiencing nostalgic thoughts about one another. The minimalistic, folky, electric background serves the song well, unifying the track with a sense of calm, comfort, a tinge of longing, and a very much needed hint of hope. Listen to the single below, and the entire record here. - Ashley Muniz
