Upright Man bring their psych rock to BK Bazaar on 03.15

Channeling a sound reminiscent of forward looking artists like Radiohead and Pink Floyd, NYC-based band Upright Man molds a signature psych-rock style propelled by a traditional guitar, bass, and drums set up. In their 2017 debut self-titled album, the trio consisting of Aidan Dolan (guitar/vocals), Nick Katz (bass/vocals), and Max Yassky (drums/vocals) flaunts  an assortment of openings for each song that range from punchy and overdriven basslines to swiftly picked guitar riffs. Songs like "Ecstacy" and "Agorognostic" soothe with ambient verses and then explode into hard-charging choruses that show off the band’s authentic sound. In songs like "Say What You Mean" you can hear the folk influences of Led Zeppelin’s groundbreaking second album, and yet, through all these changes the three New Yorkers remain themselves. The album’s title track (which double as the band's names, since the record is self-titled) is a hard-hitting classic rock ode that truly crystallizes the group’s versatility. Upright Man will be taking the stage at Brooklyn Bazaar on March 15th. - Rene Cobar

New Track: "Free Around You" - The Dove & The Wolf

“Free Around You” is the latest single from The Dove & The Wolf, and it captures a dreamy intimacy of a meeting. The beauty of vocal harmony takes a somewhat dramatic turn as the hard thump of percussion and horn fills the distance. A natural sense of familiarity allows you to drop your guard and embrace the moment. It's a graceful, loving admission. Conversations, the duo's forthcoming full-length debut is slated for release on May 3. (Photo by Marcus Maddox)

Dream Wulf Turns Up The Heat

Dream Wulf has a new EP coming out, and they’ve already proved its gonna be a good one with the pre-release “Confusing Times.” From the very first note, the dark, heavy psychedelic rock is intense and demanding. The song commands your attention, especially the vocals. The wailing, dramatic tones definitely set up the song's mood. It feels like you’re swirling your hands in some hot sand, creating designs that are intricate and mesmerizing. Equally as attention-grabbing is the guitar solo near the end of the song. It’s very bluesy and high energy, playing off the drums remarkably well. They definitely turn up the heat on an already scorching song. It’s blisteringly enjoyable.

Dream Wulf will be playing PestoFest on March 16th. You can find more details about the event on the facebook page

New Track: "Fall of '74" - Grimace Federation

“Fall of ’74” is the new single from Grimace Federation, which features original band member Zack Zweig on vibraphone, second drum kit and Fender Rhodes. It was recorded at Soma Studios by producer/musician John McEntire (Tortoise, Sea and Cake, Stereolab etc). A warped spin, as though a helicopter is hanging overhead, merges with the clarity of the vibraphone and the ramping up of bass, as drums launch the song into action. A free-flowing, jazz-prog aesthetic melds in the delightfully morphing, musical movement.

New Track: "Mystic Mountain" - Chris Forsyth

All Time Present, the forthcoming double-album from Chris Forsyth, is scheduled to arrive on April 12 via No Quarter. “Mystic Mountain” engages the ongoing spiritual journey in the search for meaning/answers. Embracing a comfort in one’s existence and surroundings, a laidback groove progresses. Amid that even-keeled march, flares of psych guitar emerge, illuminating the terrain. You can catch Forsyth’s record release show at Jerry's on Front on Saturday, April 27, supported by Garcia Peoples.
