Zook Drops a Lo-Fi, Psychedelic Folk Surprise

We stumbled upon this beautiful mesh of of lo-fi, psychedelic, garage rock, and country and couldn't help sharing it. Carrots is an EP that draws on a whole plethora of genres and musical elements to craft something remarkably fresh. Groovy acoustic guitar rhtyhms draw on the retro psychedelic, folk rock traits of bands like T. Rex and The Brian Jonestown Masssacre while tiny tin-can, creepy, distorted vocals prove reminiscent of more recent lo-fi outfits like King Tuff. The songs periodically veer off into saccharine, psychedelic instrumentals, rising and falling into crescendos of reversed guitar riffs. It's as if someone found a way to make jam bands less tiresome, indulging in the blissful potential of a guitar solo with enough taste to know when to bring it back home. There's virtually nothing online about this guy. He's got a facebook page with two likes and a bandcamp account, but with a first release like this, let's hope we hear more from him soon. - Andrew Strader

Keeps Contributes to Benefit Compilation Album to Fund the ACLU

Nothing produces high quality music quite like activism. Nashville psych rockers, Keeps, contributed to a compilation album released by Knoxville based label, Gezellig Records, from which all proceeds go to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union. Its roster contains a wide variety of artists, including indie favorites like Surfer Blood, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Mount Eerie, all coming together in support of an increasingly relevant and important organization. You can download the album on bandcamp or buy it straight from the Gezellig Records site and feel really good about it. - Andrew Strader

New Track: "Comfort Chain" - Instupendo

Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson, carries a tune that feels well-handled but open at the seams, displaying a fine attention to detail that produces a roving vignette over a shifting sonic landscape. He recently shared "Comfort Chain," a track that offers a moment to pause and reflect in a way that feels soothing rather than drowsy. Peterson is working on an EP that’s set to release this spring, but in the meantime, you can catch him tomorrow night at Kung Fu Necktie, where he’ll be performing with Bucolic, Dizzyride, and Lokomoko.

Alexander F brings explosive garage pop to Baby's All Right on 02.11 for LP release

Alexander F is electric, loud, and something that you're not likely to forget, and from the opening bass hits of new single "Swimmers," you can tell that they're here to get rowdy. The Brooklyn-based garage pop band offers wild musings on the absurdity of life, but serve it up with a side punk snarls and raucous beats--yeilding a sound that's as fun and unhinged as it is utterly catchy. Check them out at Baby's All Right 2/11 alongside Total Slacker, Exhibition, and Really Big Pinecone for their new record release, but do yourself a favor and stream them below in the meantime. - Olivia Sisinni

Dream poppers Lunch Ladies unveil new single, play Shea Stadium on 02.15

Lucky for us that this NYC centric blog also covers New Jersey based artists... Yes because in recent years the Garden State has been churning out a lot of really talented indie pop bands, and we would be sorry if we couldn't highlight them. Lunch Ladies have been around since 2014 and belong to the "dream" branch of the most melodious of genres. Their music revolves around gentle, uptempo, electric orchestrations, but finds its overall tone through Cynthia Rittenbach's uber melancholic melodies. The band just unveiled new single 'Pick Yourself Up,'  from upcoming sophomore full length 'Down on Sunset Strip,' scheduled for a March release. New Yorkers will be able to see them live at Shea Stadium on February 15th.
