Oakland's Normies release "Space" & play Eli's Mile High Club (4.13)

There’s something very genuine that comes across in the debut single “Space” (streaming below) by the new Oakland post-punk outfit Normies. Besides being easy listening, the track is well-crafted from top to bottom, without losing the lo-fi appeal. The vocals rise and fall alongside the driving guitar parts, all while maintaining a dreamy appeal. This track is a strong start for the three-piece, and leaves us excited for what’s next. You can find them tomorrow (April 13th) at Eli’s Mile High Club, alongside Freak No Hitter, Scrim, and Screaming. - Lilly Milman

New Track: "Gold Burner" - Mattress Food

Moon Town, the forthcoming album from the Sami Rahman-led project Mattress Food, will be released on April 14. Steeped in a Brit-folk/pop resonance, “Gold Burner” incorporates pleasant orchestral clutter, with a delayed flicker of light. Feel free to temporarily tune out and escape the chaos of your daily life. You can also catch Mattress Food this evening at Bourbon & Branch, where they'll be supporting Smellco's EP release show with The Wrong Band.

The Killer Wails - "Shake It" Single, Junction City 04.11

Toronto garage punk band The Killer Wails have released a new track “Shake It” and it’s an absolutely raucous tune. The greasy bass thumps along which really keeps the track moving. The vocals have an excellent “fuck you” tone in ‘em which is always a good thing. You can tell these fellas will put on a rowdy show. This Wednesday (April 11th) they play Junction City Music Hall with a couple other deadly bands The Thinly Veiled Double Entendres and Johnny 2 Fingers & The Deformities from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. You owe it to yourself to have a wild Wednesday! – Kris Gies

Been Stellar premiere garage rock single “Everyone Smokes in the City”

On their newest release, Been Stellar’s Sam Slocum and Skyler Knapp take inspiration from the city of New York after moving from Michigan in 2017 to start college. “Everyone Smokes in the City” comes from an observation the two made about the prevalence of smokers in New York compared to their previous, more midwestern home. The single takes clear inspiration from bands at the forefront of New York’s music scene in the early aughts—The Strokes and Interpol, in particular, are cited as influences by the group—and keeps a naïve sort of charm with observations on the city like choosing between a smelly subway car or the unknown of catching a cab.

“Where we came from, everything was so safe and upstanding,” Knapp says. “Even though we still were in a really nice part of the city, we noticed that the people were a bit more jagged. The song is about this new type of personality we started to see: falsely jaded, pretentiously unpretentious. It’s about dudes who talk way too much about zines and Bushwick (both of which are cool for the record). The goal of it was to try to make the least hypocritical observation of these new people we found ourselves surrounded with.”

You can stream “Everyone Smokes in the City” below. – Cameron Carr
