Psychic Selves blend psych, pop and punk, play Shea Stadium on 2/15

In 2016, Brooklyn’s indie psych rockers Psychic Selves released a quality 7 song mini-album entitled "Lucid Night.".  While the band continues working on new material and plays select live shows, these tracks provides ample opportunity for immersion into their sound. Opening track “Ratio” is dual guitar riff driven, as flange-effects pair against brighter tones, recreating surf/psychedelic vibes reminiscent of early Beach Fossils.  Featured single “Goodnight Luna” (streaming below) builds off that foundation, emphasizing melodic hooks via a note-for-note matched vocal phrasing and guitar figure. With the chorus transitioning into a smoother vocal phase, bass guitar and drums provide the driving force on its latter half double-time cadence.  Pitch-bended melancholia emerge on instrumentals “And the Truth Pt 1 + 2,”pop elements on vocal heavy “Masochist” and punk aggression on both “War Head” and “Crazy Tasty.” Psychic Selves play Shea Stadium on 2/15 with Wolf Diamond, The Rizzos and Lunch Ladies. - Dave Cromwell

New Track: "Wishes in the Raindrops" - Sandcastle

It's been a little over a year since we've heard any new material from Sandcastle. However, the group has resurfaced to support Bandcamp's benefit campaign, which will be donating all proceeds from sales today to the ACLU. The band will also be donating all its proceeds, and plans to make its new record available for free download (hopefully later this month). Check out Sandcastle's lovely new single, "Wishes in the Raindrop," off the group's forthcoming album, whose working title is currently Netherodes Vol. I: Sunflowers for the Unnameable Daughter, and give all you can!

ENTRANCE and Bill Callahan Play Starline Social Club in Oakland - 2/4

Don't miss ENTRANCE at Starline Social Club in Oakland on Saturday, February 4th w/ Bill Callahan in support of his upcoming album, Book of Changes.

ENTRANCE's Book of Changes (out Feb. 24th) is a poetic song cycle about the seasons of the heart, tracing an emotional journey through longing and emptiness to peace and redemption. The record achieves a seamless melding of the personal, political and philosophical, a vibrant document of an artist hitting a creative stride and discovering an expansive new sound. The first single "Always the Right Time" takes the same energy of ENTRANCE's protest track, Not Gonna Say Your Name and points that energy towards the positive, grabbing life by the horns and celebrating what's most important: "It's always the right time for love".
