The Weird Years offer a new brand of folk music with their self-titled EP

The few tracks that have been released by the newly formed Brooklyn quartet The Weird Years showcase a unique hybrid of folk music. Employing slowly strummed guitars and vocal harmonies, the group initially shroud their sound with simplicity, dwelling on themes revolving around the march of time and the paradoxical feelings that come with being alone. It's only after prolonged listening that their DNA unravels, revealing a double helix that equally relishes in a slow-burning ambiance. It's an arresting combination which makes their EP deserving to be unpacked patiently. -Tucker Pennington

Field Medic's "used 2 be a romantic" is a bittersweet ode to life on the road (Video)

Life on the road must be as thrilling as it is exhausting. On the video for his latest single "used 2 be a romantic," Field Medic—the stage name for folk-rock songwriter Kevin Patrick—shares a video journal of sorts that capture his numerous touring experiences: the crowd's warm embrace; the backstage banter; the everyday ennui. It's all there—Patrick's daily routine is consumed by night after night of stirring performances and intimate cigarette breaks. "I need a cigarette/ those fuckers talked over my whole set," he sings with genuine candor, strumming a twinkling melody that brightens its otherwise muted country drift.

"Used 2 be a romantic" is taken from Field Medic's latest album, fade into the dawn, which is out now via Run for Cover Records. And while we're on the topic of touring, catch Patrick play a hometown show at Moroccan Lounge on Sunday, June 9. Juan Rodríguez

A Palace in Time, recorded at Tiny Telephone and mastered by Jacob Winik, is a collection of collaborations with musicians from all over the Bay Area, including AH, Andrew Maguire, Doug Stuart, John Vanderslice, and many others. Check out this sweet taste and stayed tuned for his full release this July. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

New Track: "Video" - Random Carbon

"Video" is the new single from Random Carbon, a.k.a. Benjamin Manglos. It captures an air of 80's nostalgia as the baritone vocals recall memories, illuminated by glimmering synth. One tends to remember past events through an idealistic lens when trying to avoid or escape the present. With the knowledge that the future bestows, what would happen if you could go back?
