New Track: "Fleur" (Feat. Teen Daze) - Instupendo

Aidan Peterson, a.k.a. Instupendo, teams up with Teen Daze for “Fleur,” the second single featured on his forthcoming sophomore EP Faces I Know, which is slated for release on April 3. Gentle vocal harmony marries with the tender touch of keys and percussion in a beautiful fantasy state. A refreshing cascade of sound cleanses the spirit as one begins anew. On Friday March 30, Coda will be hosting Instupendo, who will be there to support Digitalism. You can still enter for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show HERE!

FRIGS unveil video for "Solid State" + talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

Toronto's noise rock band FRIGS have been rocking our sonic world big time for the past few weeks. So much so that we decided to put them on the cover of our SXSW 2018 issue of our sister mag The Deli, linked to the recent Austin Stompbox Exhibit. You can read the cover feature here. To complete the circle, we thought that a Q&A with the band's guitarist Duncan Hay Jennings about his guitar pedals was in order - you can find it on our sister blog Delicious Audio.

Check out also this brand new video of single 'Solid State' from the band very well received debut album "Basic Behaviour."

New Track: "I Did My Taxes For Free Online" - Spring Onion

Spring Onion, a.k.a. Catherine Dwyer, is set to release a new album, I Did My Taxes For Free Online, on April 13 via Sleeper Records. On the release, Dwyer enlists the aid of Remember Sports bandmates Carmen Perry and Jack Washburn as well as Santi Slade and Peter Gill (Friendship, Hour). The album’s first single/title-track quietly cracks the door, as an acoustic guitar pattern sets the course and the warm whine of pedal steel reinforces, beckoning inwards. A personal narrative of embracing/valuing the mundane activities of daily life follows. The musical fabric appears simple at first; however, the components mingle in a cohesive, shimmering manner.

Operator Music Band brings punchy, new wave pop to Alphaville 03.30

NYC's alternative songsmiths Operator Music Band are an innovative bunch, blending krautrock-esque new wave with chorus-laden indie tones and textures. On their most recent EP, Coördination, released last December, Operator Music Band makes much use of relatively spare songwriting technique, managing to entice their listeners with tightly controlled instrumentation amid synthy droning dissonance, harmonies reminiscent of Portishead (with Dara Hirsch and Jared Hiller exchanging lead vocal duties), and unpredictable departures midway through a given song into an entirely new idea, as evidenced in "Communicator 4." In spite of obvious nods to their predecessors, Operator Music Band sounds fresh and interesting. Don't miss them at Alphaville on March 30th in support of Trace Mountains, and have a listen to "Communicator 4" below! - Ethan Ames

Spirits of Leo share single “Eden” + play album release show at Tender Trap on 3/22

With its title referencing the biblical world without sin, Brooklyn's Spirits of Leo's new track “Eden” (streaming below) creates a dreampop impression of that earthly temptation garden. Having relocated to Brooklyn from California, the band's creative force Ryan Santos Phillips weaves in a nod to Steinbeck's “East of Eden” as well. However, much like the human struggles in that literary tale, the prevailing focus here is of a paradise lost. Built around a driving bass line, melodic guitar riffs and clearly defined percussion, the vocals cascade in layers that create an atmospheric motion. “I wonder where we're going again” serves as the songs catchiest repeated lyrical refrain providing a glimmer of hope for another chance at paradise. Included on the full-length album “Equinox,” the band will play its release show on March 22 at Tender Trap, with the record available everywhere on the 23rd. - Dave Cromwell
