New Track: "Emotional High" - Mannequin Pussy

Mannequin Pussy premiered a new track called "Emotional High," over at Noisey yesterday. It's off the band's forthcoming album, Romantic, due out October 28 via Tiny Engines. Frontwoman Marissa Dabice shared some insight about their latest single:

“It’s so genuinely full of warmth because I am appreciative of the people in my life, and I can’t believe they’re there. Sometimes you don’t know how to tell people in your life that you love them, and music is a chance to do that. It’s in such an emotionally dense record it’s this standalone song that’s the most telling of the things you need when you’re in the middle of a bunch of darkness. ‘Emotional High’ is that gratitude for my people song.”

New Wives Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Wive, the latest release from Wives, smolders with an uninhibited confessional monologue meets a foreboding thunderous musicality. Those raw exposed emotive vocals gather steam against the consistent grunge/noise attack, in essence flipping that fragile sense of openness into a feeling of power. The relentless surge is the natural shot of adrenaline one could use midweek.

Secret Crush brings their brand of shoegaze to Berlin 8/27

Secret Crush deals up sleepy but fun shoegaze propelled by infectious grooves. The vocals of the Bushwick-based group sound as if filtered through one of those low-power FM radio, and are set above dreamy, fuzzy guitars that are more playful than lofty. Their newly released EP, Birth, blends a strong garage-pop feel into the mix, and conveys to the tracks' swirling melodies a dance-y beat that's easy to latch on to. You can check out Secret Crush at Berlin playing with Beechwood on Aug 27th, but in the meantime take a listen at our favorite song 'Psychic Companion,' streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

NYC Record of the Month: Sleepies - 'Natural Selection' LP

After four years, Sleepies are back with a new full length entitled Natural Selection, released on July 16th via Mirror Universe Tapes. The record marks a definite shift for the band towards late '60s British psych. The opening two songs 'Chips Left' and 'Genetic Cousins' (streaming) toy with melodies reminiscent of unforgotten madman Syd Barrett, but fill up the sonic spectrum with a tense and fuzzy blend of garagey distorted guitars. Following song “All Over The Years” follows recycles Parquet Courts' "Nu-Post-Punk" sound (a recurring influence), although the spacey chord changes never fail to remind us the psych nature of this work. Delirious power-track Sky Chase is filled with urgency and intriguing vocal arrangements, while pushing the saturation of their garagey sound to eleven. Throughout the album, the guitars always lay the groundwork with threatening tones and riffs, but this tension is constantly resolved through memorable choruses and vocal melodies - for a satisfying listening esperience. - John Honan

The Writhing Squares Record Release Show at KFN Aug. 11

Kevin Nickles (Ecstatic Vision, Taiwan Housing Project) and Daniel Provenzano (Purling Hiss, Spacin') rocket through space as The Writhing Squares. Tonight, the duo celebrates their latest album In The Void Above (Siltbreeze) with a performance at Kung Fu Necktie. The hard-driving record circles as components of chaotic noise emanate amid the locked-down bass and percussion, while the vocal interjections serve as captain-esque reference points. Splashed with the additional sonic colors of flute and saxophone, this noise-rock meets jazz ambiance steers toward the unexplored in a twisted futuristic groove. This evening’s festivities will also feature the local psych-punk of Igneous Eyes and the commanding psych-rock power of Birds of Maya. The genre-elusive, jazz-rock freak-out that is Massachusetts’s The Blues Dream Box completes this adventurous night of music. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N.
