New Music: Emily Afton - Someday

We´re excited to share another premiere today!! Emily Afton’s voice is transporting. Deep and smokey, Emily delivers her emotive and honest songs from a place that feels lodged in the past, rooted in a dreamy barefoot era. You can hear the Georgian lineage on her mother’s side, conjuring a Southern swamp, mixed with urbane pop relevance. Oakland indie-rock meets an after hours quest for mischief, with ribbons of soul and electro-pop interwoven.

"Archetype is an episodic album which explores themes of time passing, love, and the cycle of life/death (It’s also produced by Lila Rose and David Earl). The newest single "Someday" is one that particularly focuses on exploring death and relates it to "falling down the rabbit hole". I wrote it last summer when my mom was very ill and for the first time, was forced to explore what death means to me. It sort of has a mix of blissfulness and existentialism, because it begs us to be in love with our lives while we're here, while also always remembering that we are inevitably going to die." - Emily Afton on the forthcoming album, Archetype and the single, “Someday”

Hands In Will Make You Put Your Hands Up

When it comes to throwing your hands in and being a team player, there isn't a finer group of young gentleman that knows more about this than our own Hands In. Sensual wailer Erick Crosby heads the forefront of this endeavor, backed by Chad Davis and Cody Berger, both of whom are members of two other Portland psych-garage fits, Ah God and Talkative. Hands In have been featured on The Deli Portland before as part of last year's PDX Pop Now! post, but it's due time to give them proper mention. Hands In will provide your ears with the utmost refreshing jam sesh and can be found playing shows around time quite often. Keep up with them via their Facebook page and catch them live!

Providence's Edgar Clinks plays The Midway Cafe on 12.2 and AS220 on 12.5

Rebellious, whimsical, literary, and elegiac are some of the hopefully accurate words that come to mind when reflecting on Providence band Edgar Clinks' exhilerating September release, 'Keep Jetty Diving.' Featuring the innocent yet relentless vocals of frontman Joe Guadiana, these genre-melding tracks, from the sweet pop-punk of opener "Tree Culture" to the apparently surf rock-rattled closer "weave roll'd into another dream" (streaming below), curl up on the listener like a dog whose pure affection can't be denied. Edgar Clinks plays at The Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, MA on 12.2 and at AS220 in Providence, RI on 12.5. - Zach Weg

Total Unicorn's Electronic Alien Freakout "Whole Lotta Louvre"

Spacefolk/musicians Total Unicorn dropped a quite nice future freakout track a couple weeks ago as the single for their just-released album Relaxation Tape, and we’ve got it in all its lovely pangalactic glory for you here today. “Whole Lotta Louvre” sounds like something straight out of a hip irreverent scifi universe (like if Fifth Element had a unhinged experimental edge to it), starting out with a grippingly odd alien choral performance that gives way to an equally extraterrestrial hard rap. None of it sounds like English, or really like anything familiar at all, but all of it is good weird spacefuture shit that’ll get your interstellar daydreams firing off instantly when you hear it. Get listening below to a delicious piece of electronic weirdness, and check back here for a post on the full album from one of the most unique groups in town sometime soon.
