Record of the Month: Katie Von Schleicher

Late in 2017, NYC based singer-songwriter (and vocalist for Wilder Maker) Katie Von Schleicher came out with a poignant and plaintive album with the not-so-poetic title Shitty Hits. From the very beginning, opener The Image treats the listener to Von Schleicher’s unusual, yet elegant melodies, supported by an unexpectedly noisy production based on a new, intriguing approach to loud/quiet/loud. The results are spectacular. The perfectly controlled, vaguely industrial clangor keeps coming in the following tracks, together with Katie’s incredibly beautiful vocal lines, forging a record that’s as unique as it is enjoyable and moving. Perhaps it’s true, these songs aren’t hits, but, on the other hand, they are definitely art.

Katie is touring the US and Europe this spring, don't miss the 4.06 show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and her performances at SXSW.

New Track: "Cubic Zirconia" - No Thank You

All It Takes To Ruin It All, the forthcoming album from No Thank You, will released on April 6 via Lame-O Records. The trio recently shared the album’s lead single, “Cubic Zirconia”. A rhythmic climb gathers steam as Kaytee Della Monica expresses a sensitive awareness in the face grief. The insight into the flurry of emotion that follows loss is surrounded by an instrumental drive, providing a concise, episodic window. Kung Fu Necktie will be hosting No Thank You’s record release show on Friday, April 6, where they'll be supported by Narra and Tact. (Photo by Daniel Lidon)

Barrie brings loungy dream pop to SXSW + plays Baby's All Right on 03.23

We stumbled upon the name Barrie while browsing through the list of artists participating in the 2018 edition of SXSW. This is a very new SXSW quintet with only one single under their belt, entitled "Canyons" (streaming below), an intriguing blend of lounge and dream pop with airy female vocals and a bass line that, at times, ventures into groovy disco fluorishes. The band seems to have hit the ground running, since they will be performing at SXSW this March and, the following week, at Baby's All Right.

Mic Capes Celebrates Black History Month with "Black Pearls"

Celebrating blackness is something that should happen year round and for those of us that fall under that racial designation, it does. But as far as the rest of society is concerned, February is the one month to give the most recognition. For Mic Capes, this is part of his identity, but in the spirit of Black History Month he's dropped a new video for his track "Black Pearls."

"Black Pearls" comes off Mic Capes' debut LP, summer 2016's Concrete Dreams. It starts out with a spoken word feature from Lauren Steele, before breaking into grooves permeated with R&B as Capes and singer Aaron O'Brian Smith play lyrically and vocally. The actual video itself doesn't feature Lauren Steele, but subs in visuals of model Teresa Patterson mouthing lines from the poem while surrounded by a waterfalls, rocks and gorgeous greenery. Other shots include a black mother feeding her children, an appreciation of different black hair and fashion styles, a little girl blowing bubbles and a variety of black women smiling, giving the video an overall jovial air toward black culture.

Though Black History Month is coming to its close, our celebration never stops. Watch the video for "Black Pearls" below, and catch Mic Capes perform next at a Soul'd Out Festival-hosted show at the Wonder Ballroom with JID, EarthGang and Brown Calculus in late April.

New Dark Blue Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

“Fight To Love,” the new single from Dark Blue, is now available via 12XU. Recorded at Uniform Recording with Jeff Zeigler, the song grimly pushes back against gentrification. A measured solemn strength resounds. On its B-side, you'll find a cover of Anti-Nowhere League’s “For You”. The band tempers the traditional tempo, allowing the lyrics to sink in deep. On Sunday, March 11, Dark Blue is slated to share a bill with the UK's IDLES and DJ BCBG (a.k.a. Matt Korvette of Pissed Jeans) at PhilaMOCA.
