Weekend Warrior, May 5 - 7

Psychic Teens orchestrate gloomy, ruminating, melodic post-punk with volatile noisy tendencies, magnifying the murky slow burn into a full-on, shoegazing spectacle. Tonight, the trio celebrates their latest album HEX (available via Hex Records) with a release show at Boot & Saddle, where they’ll explore the darkness via steel-cold, slicing guitars and booming, brooding, baritone vocals. They’ll be joined by the combative, grunge-punk quartet of Tiny Vices and the ferocious, fuzzed-out, psych instrumentations meets clairvoyant, catchy vocals of Dulls. And after releasing their sophomore album New Kind of Normal via their own label Plum Records earlier today, Augusta Koch, Allegra Anka and Kelly Olsen, a.k.a. Cayetana, welcome their introspective, honest, emotive rock release this evening with a show at First Unitarian Church, where they’ll be supported by Shannen Moser, Katie Ellen, and Aster More.  

A day after releasing their new LP Veblen Death Mask via Kill Rock Stars, the enchanting, eclectic experimentation of Taiwan Housing Project steps into Johnny Brenda’s, wielding their off-kilter, jigsaw-puzzle sound, meshing the hauntingly unexpected with the inherently gripping. They’ll be sharing the stage with the mind-warping psych-punk of Igneous Eyes and ESCAPE-Ism, the latest project from D.C. stalwart Ian Svenonius.  

The crowds head back to Boot & Saddle this Sunday for a March On Harrisburg Benefit, featuring the exuberant, melodic, psych-folk stretches of Pine Barons. They’ll be donating their time along with the get-loose, retro-fitted psych-pop of Ceramic Animal and harmony-harnessing trio of TIOGA. - Michael Colavita

PPL's Reincarnated Shoegaze

PPL is a three-piece outfit from NYC that has dragged the shoegaze aesthetic from its late 80s/early 90s heyday right up into the present. They play extensively with dynamic shifts, layering feedback, using delay to create dronescapes, soaking guitar hooks in chorus and reverb, and providing sudden bursts of carefully crafted sonic walls. For such a bare bones lineup like guitar, bass, and drums, it's genuinely impressive how massive this band can make itself sound. Every noise they make is meant to serve the song. The sonic textures they design prove remiscent of My Bloody Valentine while the arrangements of songs often carry alternative rock and pop sensibilities that bring 90s classics like Weezer to mind. Be sure to catch their record release show for their self titled EP Post Personality Loss on May 24th at Union Pool

Noise rockers NØMADS drop new single, land Pianos residency starting 05.09

NYC-based indie rockers NØMADS describe themselves as "two people in a room hitting things hard and trying to communicate life," and if that doesn't sound like the perfect way of navigating through all the things life hurls at you, then I don't know what does. With understated vocals and catchy riffs, the duo crafts tracks with strong hooks and engaging verses, but there's a decidedly noisy streak that creates the real magic in the band's songs. The band will have a May residency at Pianos starting on the 9th. Check out NØMADS's new track, "ATAXOPHOBIA" streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Artists on the rise: slack rockers peaer play Sunnyvale on May 13

Brooklyn-based Peaer crafts understated indie rock songs that feel raw and unpolished enough to reflect the types of real-life concepts wrestled with in their lyrics. A highly dynamic band with a lot of heart, Peaer is tight enough to flirt with the wildness of coming undone, without ever succumbing to it. Active since the beginning of the decade, the band in 2016 released a noteworthy 7 track record, one of our favorite within the genre, check out "single Cliff Song," below, and opener "Pink Spit," here. - Olivia Sisinni

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best garagey/punky songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
