New Track: "SICKO" - Psychic Teens

It feels like it's been a minute since we've heard new material from Philly gothic post-punk power trio Psychic Teens. And the wait was well worth it! "SICKO," the band's latest incendiary single, sets ablaze all in its path with bloodcurdling guitar slashes and unrelenting percussive bombardments. No one will be spared. It's an unfiltered, revealing, dystopian depiction of our modern day society. "SICKO" can be found on the group's forthcoming EP HEX, due out April 21 via Hex Records.

Simon Doom shares single from debut LP, plays Pyramid Club on 4/25

Reverberated guitars, insightful lyrics and lush backing vocals come together on Simon Doom’s new release “I Feel Unloved” (streaming below).  Taken from the debut full-length “Babyman” due out this May, the production hand of MGMT duo Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden accounts for much of its sheen.  Opening lines “In the seminaries, in the shopping malls, think so eloquently, but I can’t speak at all,” depict a sense of confusion and loss.  Familiar routines involving “business centers” and “concert halls” provide no relief leading to the question “what did I do to earn this?”. Simon O’Connor delivers the creative force on this project, after spending time with like-minded artists in the bands Kuroma and Amazing Baby.  Using the experience of parenthood as a motivator to complete this record, its sentiment appears wrapped up in the album’s title.  Catch Simon Doom live at The Pyramid Club on 4/25, as well as significant support slots with Piebald on 5/24 and The Lemon Twigs on 6/1. - Dave Cromwell

Wild Pink releases dreamy debut LP, plays Baby's All Right on 04.18

Embracing at once gentleness, distortion, reverb and feedback, NYC trio Wild Pink crafts dreamo-pop that's enjoyable and varied. And in case you are wondering what "dreamo-pop" is, it's dream pop with traces of emo in it (you should have gotten that one!). After two EPs released in 2015 and 2016, the band dropped their debut, self titled full length earlier in 2017, and it's a record of rare songwriting consistency. They have two pretty solid local shows coming up, one at Baby's All Right on April 18, and one at BK Bazaar on May 20th. Check out single "Great Apes," streaming below

Weekend Warrior, March 31 - April 2

Released last month via Epitaph, The Menzingers’ latest album, After The Party, finds the quartet in a reflective realm. Maintaining a melodic, polished sense of exuberance, the album stews on reminiscent tales of young adulthood, steadily driving ahead while peaking out from within those narratives to inject crowd-charging, catchy choruses. After numerous nights of travel, their destination is the inviting return home as they set up shop, intertwining Americana-punk sounds at The Fillmore, joined by Jeff Rosenstock, and Rozwell Kid.
Meanwhile, right down the road at Johnny Brenda's, the engulfing fuzz-torching psych rock of Bardo Pond blazes an invigorating sonic trail to commemorate their new release, Under The Pines, available via Fire Records. They’ll be supported by Sparrow Steeple and Eric Arn so step out of the rain and soak in some replenishing sounds. - Michael Colavita
