Debut Love? said the Commander EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duo of Kate Hall and Chris Bishop, a.k.a. Love? said the Commander, recently released their debut EP A Million Miles Away, which was produced by Dave Downham at Gradwell House Studio. Hall’s vocals have an authoritative, graceful presence, and when combined with guitar, violin, etc., they illuminate a detailed path. A singer-songwriter tone, with a sense of friction and force that expands in fiery, focused instrumental runs, the EP leaves a cathartic imprint. The pair will be holding their EP release show tomorrow night at Ortlieb's, supported by The Naked Sun and Rah Blow.

Boy Scouts releases animated video for "Hate Ya 2"

Boy Scouts just released their latest video for "Hate Ya 2" and it's a captivating animated creation. What an amazing blend of visual mediums that pairs so nicely with the sad and lovely tune. Shout out to that fly, the balloon, all of it. Boy Scouts' new album Free Company is out September 30 on Anti Records. Fall tour dates (with Jay Som!) start September 11. 

Says Vicks, "”Hate Ya 2” is about trying to grapple with conflicting feelings. When you still have love for someone who can also make you feel undervalued and hurt, and how confusing that experience can be. The process of recording this song felt very cathartic. Stephen [Steinbrink] and I drove out to my parent’s house with my friend Rose Droll to have her record piano on a few songs from the record, and when she played along to this one we tracked a few takes of her improvising. It added such a beautiful melancholic element, in true Rose Droll fashion.” 

When we asked Boy Scouts' front person Taylor Vicks why their music has a "golden retriever" classification on Bandcamp, they said, simply, "I really like golden retrievers." A fine, fine reason. Well, we really like you. Give this tune a listen and be damned if you don't listen to the rest of the album, too.

New Music Video: "Sincerely" - Brackish

Featured on their 2018 EP Worlds, Brackish recently shared a new video for the track, “Sincerely”. Director Ricardo Lorenzo weaves a web of found footage, providing a sense of context, while also tapping into a sense of nostalgia. One can passively observe or alternately place oneself in those moments. Brackish are currently working on a full-length album, but you can catch them this Saturday, August 17 at Couchtown, with Harmony Woods (solo), Alenni (solo), and New York's Tiny Blue Ghost.

Citris shares new single, plays Rubulad on 9/18

Explosive drop-D grunge-metal guitars and thundering drums introduce the new Citris single “Hell Is a Place on Earth” (streaming below). Written and performed by Angelina Torreano (guitar/vocals) and recorded/mixed and mastered by Chris Krasnow (who also contributes drums/bass and guitar) the track is a heavy rumination on personal failings against larger global issues. “Too selfish to die, too right to be happy, too weak to be leaned on. Leave it to me to destroy everything that is good,” the singer laments.  The title line, repeated in the chorus, benefits from harmonized vocal layering, adding a big-studio sheen to that hook, followed by the lyrics “give me your love, then take it away.” A pivotal statement arrives one minute in, when the instruments drop out for the solo vocals declaration “I don't look back in anger.” While that progression cycles through again (with alternate lyrical content), a sophisticated, angular, prog-metal break emerges around the 3rd minute and takes the track to its conclusion. This initial release comes ahead of the upcoming full-length album “Delusions of Glamour.” Having just completed a west coast tour, the band has a number of local shows in the works including 9/18 at Rubulad. - Dave Cromwell
