New Track: "Be Free" - Nematode

“Be Free,” the debut single from fledgling psych-rock quartet Nematode, is an ear-opening hello. The song utilizes vocal harmony and slices of tangential guitar to spread out that spacey, Pink Floyd-inspired sound. Grounded by the groove, the vocals smoothly ascend, reaching for something that lies just out of reach.

Weekend Warrior, February 9 - 11

This Sunday, The Sound Hole stretches the standard sonic boundaries. Taiwan Housing Project tears into noise-laced, sorcery-stemming punk angst, peppered in free-jazz notes. That chaotic hybrid churns along the rails, casting a post-apocalyptic storm, while teetering on the edge of destruction that naturally rights itself. Jason Killinger (Spacin’, Birds of Maya) locks into down and dirty riff-tastic rock, turning down strange alleys of ambiance that orchestrate an odd, endless, space boogie. Kevin Nickles (Taiwan Housing Project, Ecstatic Vision) and Daniel Provenzano (Spacin', Purling Hiss), a.k.a. The Writhing Squares, tie together this lineup. There’s a heavy, burrowing, instrumental drive that moves with an insatiable exploratory appetite into deep space, incorporating an array of instrumentation that’s progressive with a primal core. Louisville, Kentucky’s Tropical Trash fits nicely into this assembly of eclectic, experimenting music makers. – Michael Colavita

Solid Goold premiere video for retro-kitsch track “New Best Friend”

Solid Goold lives for all things retro, to the point that it’s sometimes unclear whether the ‘70s inspired outfits and ‘60s style harmonies are meant jokingly or lovingly—likely a bit of both. It’s fitting then that the music video for “New Best Friend” plays into similar aesthetic tropes, caking on cheap visual effects and dopey characters to good measure. Frontman Albert Goold finds himself hopelessly chasing a lover when, as the lyrics foreshadow, he may just need a new best friend. It’s the first video from Solid Goold’s 2017 album “Metabeta” and it does an excellent job highlighting the band’s lighthearted, throwback pop style. Watch the video, directed by Patrick Elmore and featuring actress Katy Rea, below and catch the band performing at Sidewalk Cafe tonight as part of the Winter Antifolk Fest. – Cameron Carr
