Still Woozy brings acoustic-influenced indietronica to The Constellation Room tonight (3.24)

Still Woozy is the passion project of the Oakland-based Sven Gamsky, who describes his own music as “electronic/acoustic wooz.” The fuzzy bedroom pop is reminiscent of other indietronica acts like Glass Animals (on their first album), but with his own twist. Gamsky’s brand of mellow pop is upbeat and melodic, but his lyrics are cool and, at times, even enigmatic. His effort to combine the sounds of acoustic and electronic music is paying off; with Still Woozy, he is making the type of pop you don’t mind hearing on repeat. - Lilly Milman, photo by Palmer Morse

Vlad Holiday brings thoughtful indie-pop to Elsewhere 04.03

New York's indie-pop sensation Vlad Holiday is a force to be reckoned with. Just take his latest single, the ambient and melancholy "Children" - channeling the likes of M. Ward and The National; Holiday waxes nostaglic for simpler days and laments a certain loss of innocence that comes with the territory of growing up. Moreover, Holiday seems to long for the kind of blind optimism that drives so many of us to plunge headlong into life and love, for better or worse. "Lie to me and say goodnight/It'll be all right/Lie and say this world is fine/That we will be all right." Vlad Holiday is playing a release show for his latest single at Elsewhere on April 3rd, with support from Des Rocs and Lip Talk. Listen to "Children" below! - Ethan Ames

Death By Piano share EP title track “Countdown” + play release show at Elsewhere on 4/2

There is a slow burn soul that runs throughout the synth-pop created by Brooklyn duo Death By Piano. The six songs on their debut EP “Countdown” emerge at a measured pace with singer/keyboardist Kalen Lister and producer/instrumentalist Greywolf crafting a deliberate, moody feel. On the title track (streaming below) deep bass synths and electronic beats create a pulsating groove leading to the vocal hook “please – please don't turn the lights out - give me space to shake off the in crowd.” A spacious ambiance emerges at the midpoint, where beat-less waves of sound pulse behind Kalen's emotive vocals. With the beats returning, the ultimate declaration is to “look the wolf in the eye, don't back down.” The EP is now available for pre-order, with the full release on April 6. To celebrate, the band will play their release show on 4/2 at Elsewhere. - Dave Cromwell

New Track: "Type A" - Control Top

Post-punk trio Control Top just premiered "Type A," the first single from the band's forthcoming debut LP, Covert Contracts, over at Stereogum. The project was founded by vox/bassist Ali Carter, who has recruited drummer Alex Lichtenaur (HIRS) and guitarist Al Creedon (Bleeding RainbowI IM EYE MY), to help her unleash a bit of noise and fury on innocent (and not-so-innocent) bystanders. They'll be kicking off a run of shows with Empath at Space 1026 on Wednesday, March 28, along with punk outfit Dark Thoughts.

New Three Man Cannon LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The new self-titled album from Three Man Cannon is now available via Lame-O Records. The quartet spins subtle, melodic indie rock/pop that’s personally inviting and earnest. The beauty of that barrier-free storytelling creates a connection, as one becomes immersed in the warmth of the instrumentation, which while pleasantly mellow, escalates at optimal moments, before laying back in a casual stroll that is well called upon. It’s the type of record that grows on you with each additional listen, as you pick up on any number of nuances. You can join Three Man Cannon at their record release show on Sunday, April 15 at Johnny Brenda’s.
