Anna Altman brings slowcore jams to Alphaville on Dec. 22nd

Counterintuitively, Anna Altman is a band of young musicians from Brooklyn with a female lead singer, not a one woman project. Their music brings back (or finally exposes?) adult angst with a bedroom-y, DIY palette of sounds. The indie/alt rock group's dry percussive section (Christian Billard) and wonky guitars are brightened by chilled-out, conversational vocals by Lucia Arias. Two highlights from their album FREIGHTLINER are "Never" and "White Horse" which showcase the band's sweet lo-fi aesthetic. Streaming below, opening track and single "The Interview." You can catch Anna Altman live at Alphaville on Dec. 22nd. - Geena Kloeppel

New Soft Idiot LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Rain Wins Another Year!, the new album from Soft Idiot, recently arrived, and is available on cassette courtesy of Cheap Plastic Records. Saturated in emotive melodies, the record unites a series of diary-styled narratives. Invited into one's personal space, these songs exude an effervescent warmth, while exposing an endearing interior. That pleasure and pain principle strewn across a lo-fi, folk platform is a domain that you’ll explore and escape within.

The Max Tribe perform last Boston show, prepare move to west coast

Last night at the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA, psych blues quartet The Max Tribe performed their last foreseeable Northeast show amidst preparation of a cross country leap to Los Angeles, opening for the Hudson Valley’s Breakfast for the Boys. Fronted by Nashville native Austin Max, the band has been described as a blend of psych, blues, and rock and roll, drawing comparisons to The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, and The White Stripes. In August 2017, the band embarked on a midwest/northeast tour in support of their full length debut, Retrofit. You can stream the album below. -Charley Ruddell

Riley McShane's "Places" EP is indie folk at its finest

The newest release by San Jose native folk artist Riley McShane is the type of project that sneaks up on you, in the best way possible. Aptly titled Places, it is a drifter's rumination on what it means to be rooted somewhere—in ways both mental and physical. Recorded in various bedrooms, classrooms, and cars, this triumphant EP is a reminder of what makes the D.I.Y. scene so great. Reminiscent of other indie folk greats like Gregory Alan Isakov, Riley McShane is one to watch very closely (especially since he never seems to stay in one place for very long.) Check out his EP, and catch him playing SoFar Sounds on Saturday (an event almost as nomadic as the artist himself.) - Lilly Milman

Heaven unveils video for "Never the Moment"

If psych rock and shoegaze had a baby, then that baby would probably love the fuzzy indie rock of New York-based Heaven. The quartet subverts the conventions of psychedelia with their focus on lyricism and tight percussion lines, all while maintaining plenty of fuzz. Their songs channel an emotional quality not often seen in psychedelia. The slow, often droning tracks would be perfect for a school dance for stoners (intended in the best way possible, of course). They just unveiled this video for single "Never the Moment," which will be included in their upcoming LP "All Love is Blue," out in March 2018 on Little Cloud Records.  - Lilly Milman
