Upper Wilds return from a quick tour to play Gold Sounds on 11.18

Upper Wilds are an experiment in distortion. Their debut album, "Guitar Module 2017" (Deli NYC record of the month last month) is one frenzied wave of noise going through the entire body. Once the senses accept this new experience, the lyrics can finally be appreciated. Somehow, through all the glitchy melodies come these heavenly vocals that find a near-perfect blend of pop and punk. This is another band that shouldn't work but totally does. To hear it, to believe it, check out Upper Wilds’ upcoming show at Gold Sounds on November 18, right after the band's brief east coast tour. - Amanda Ogea

New Track: "Soil" - Power Animal

Power Animal’s forthcoming album, Good Wind Pt. 1, will be released on November 10 via the band’s charitable label Human Kindness Overflowing (with 50% of proceeds going to The Emergent Fund). “Soil” alludes to a time of death, as a percussive clap climbs, occupying the same space as a choral sample. A reflective self-awareness meshes with a beat-centric intensity, producing a heavy awakening affect. Don't miss their dual record release show with Friendship next Friday, November 17 at Everybody Hits, where they'll be supported by Free Cake For Every Creature and Tall Friend!

New Jordan Brown EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Savory soulful R&B is on display in Where We Were, the new EP from Jordan Brown. Produced by Kayin, the quintet of tracks is steeped in a smooth, street-walking sound. Consuming propulsion, cultivated by the groove-quenching beat and sleek vocal delivery, pulls one into an air of intimacy. As the temperature begins to dip, this debut solo release exudes heartfelt warmth. You can find Brown heating things up next Tuesday, November 14 at Pub Webb with Ill Natives, Little Strike, and Kingsley Ibeneche.

New Jo Kusy LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Check out the cover for The Amazing Jumpin' Jo Kusy! Does it cause you to wonder what makes Jo Kusy so "amazing" and "jumpin'"? Drugs? Or maybe it's his knack for making playfully uninhibited, garage-psych tunes. The prolific Philly songwriter continues to churn out hypnotically odd yet groovy creations on his most recent album and fifth release of 2017. We have confidence that he just might have one more in him before the year is out - perhaps two if the winter chill comes soon and traps him inside. Until then, enjoy his latest below!

Tall Juan premieres Ramones cover video, performs at Puerto Rico benefit 11.05

Maybe you’ve been thinking “wow, there are a lot of bad things going on in the world right now—like the hurricane damage to Puerto Rico—I wish I could do something about it.” Or maybe you’ve been thinking “what my life needs is a band that sounds like The Ramones, but isn’t The Ramones, and maybe features acoustic guitar and occasional Spanish.” Either way you should probably be watching Tall Juan at the Que Lio! Fundraiser show for Puerto Rico on November 5th.

Sometimes it’s just hard to figure out how to do good and contribute to a cause, but being part of a benefit makes it easy. Sometimes it’s just hard to listen to The Ramones—actually, no it’s not, if you feel like it’s hard to listen to The Ramones I cannot offer sincere understanding... But that’s beside the point. Tall Juan’s Joey Ramone-esque vocal delivery and incessantly bopping rhythms clearly pay tribute to the early NYC rebels, but there’s also a garage rock, almost lo-fi sensibility to his taste and style (Mac DeMarco recorded his debut album). It’s a sound true to New York from The Ramones, to The Strokes, to that band you saw a couple weeks ago in Brooklyn that sounded way better live than on Bandcamp.

Below, you can watch his new video for “Time Bomb”—a Ramones cover that sounds even more Ramonesque than the original—featuring shirtless Tall Juan, skateboards, and hip little dance moves. And don’t forget to stop by the Que Lio! fundraiser at Baby’s All Right. It’s a donation-based daytime show (12-4 p.m.) on a Sunday, so no excuses. – Cameron Carr, photo by Audrey Del Piccolo.
