Record of the Month: Sandcatchers - See them at Berlin on Mondays in December

If, when faced with the prospect of listening to world music, you can't help but going "meh" (it's a shared prejudice!) you owe it to yourself to check out Brooklyn's Sandcatchers, both live (they are currently holding a Monday residency at Berlin) and on record. In sophomore LP "What We Found Along the Way" this quartet manage to effortlessly assemble tracks that blend middle eastern influences with Americana, post rock and noise rock as well. Based on an impossible time signature (what's that, a 9/4 tempo?), streamiing single Flees Fast Singing is groovy, tense and unpredictable. A lot of their repertoire is softer, like opening track Sky Stirs (which betrays folky pasts) or favorite Drop Stars Like Memories, but the band seems to catch fire whenever the BPM revs up, like in Washed and Wild, where a twangy distorted lap steel and an oud compete for attention on top of a breakneck fast paced rhythm section. The group is composed of veteran musicians, and you can hear it in the top notch execution, which - as so rarely happens - is matched by a sound that is as original as it's entertaining. Don't miss the next performance at Berlin on Monday 12.11. - PDG

Debut MINT Demo EP Available for Streaming & Download

Simply titled Demo serves as the introduction to fledgling punk quartet MINT. Melding agitation/aggression lyrically and vocally with a raw instrumental tenacity, the band becomes instantly gripping. Those blitzing, unabashed quick-hitters really rip.

Caroline Rose releases blistering single “Money” from upcoming album “Loner”

Burlington’s Caroline Rose has released a new single from her upcoming album Loner, the sophomoric follow up to 2014’s I Will Not Be Afraid. The single, a blistering garage-fueled banger called “Money”, sparks, flares, and burns out in under two and a half minutes. “We did it for the money!” shouts Rose in a shameless, chaotic confession, either poking fun at our money obsessed society, or perhaps pointing out the irony in a fetishized, but dry-bled music biz. Or maybe I’m just looking too deep into it. Either way, it’s a lot of fun. Loner is out February 23rd on New West Records. -Charley Ruddell

A Deli premiere: The Echo Friendly - "Surveying the Damage" - LP Release Party at Rough Trade on 12.10

The Echo Friendly's 2014 debut LP Love Panic was a rather mellow indie pop-rock record filled with timeless melodies and moody atmospheres. The duo today is releasing the long awaited sophomore LP, called Surveying The Damage, and its first single is a testament to rising above anxiety called "Power Through". In keeping with that theme, the timely title track (premiered below) navigates breaking through feelings of insecurity in a hostile world, while revealing a sound that's faster and rawer - a clue confirmed by the other single available for streaming. You can hear The Echo Friendly play both singles from the album and more during their record release show at Rough Trade on December 10th. - Will Sisskind

From OhMyRockness: New Jersey's Fire is Motion

Our friends at OhMyRockness introduced us to the lovely music of New Jersey's Fire is Motion, the brainchild of Adrian Amedor - we'll let them do the intros:

"I have not researched this (because I'm a music blobber) but Fire is Motion has to be named after that Cap'n Jazz song that goes like this.

Fire is motion! Work is repetition! This is my document. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all defenses. Fire is motion is motion growth?

God, I love that song.

Anyway, Fire is Motion doesn't sound like Cap'n Jazz at all (except for a few nice math rock noodles here and there). Sorry for the red herring there. My bad. My blob.

So what does this New Jersey band (the work of one man, Adrian Amador, and his pals) sound like then?

That's a great question! Blast this lovely EP below and find out!

Please note: there will be glockenspiels / horns / harmonies / builds / plenty of pretty parts"
