Streetlight Shakers are all-Americana goodness, First Church show set for 08.13

Few bands show the combination of skill and passion that Connecticut's Streetlight Shakers do. The trio uses a simple set-up of drums, keys, and bass to produce full-blown Americana gems. The elegant vocals of Jeff Boratko lead the way past intricate basslines and finely-crafted drum patterns, telling a story easy to relate to, easy to imagine. The band's debut record A Light in the Dark is jam-packed with tunes tailored-made to capture consciousness profoundly: some songs inspiring like "Pull Yourself Together" some cautionary like "Down With the Devil" all demand careful attention. The group's stories seep into the mind and remain there, fermenting till the next listen. The band has a busy month ahead with the next New England show at First Church in West Hartford on August 13th. We are streaming "Brooklyn Bound" to keep your weekend going in style. - Rene Cobar

You can catch the band in Philly next at the First Unitarian Church on Thursday, November 14, with Chastity Belt.

Rogozo's dual album is a sonic journey worth taking, performance set for 08.02

Boston's Rogozo has a brand new double record out titled Nine Lives/Eight Lives and boy does it offer an escape from life's asphyxiating routine. The ambiance in the opening track "Nine Lives" alone is enough to relax the brain's neurons and secrete euphoria. The listener can be lost in the suppleness of the string instruments and keys that open the song and lead toward an intriguing marching drum build-up. The song then cascades the mind into a lake of majestic vocal chants, blinding drum fills, and flourishing guitars. The record continues its art-rock flexing to flash stylish guitar solos and Queen-like enthusiasm in its performance. "Animals" in particular is a cross between the most prominent rock forms of the '70s: punk, glam, and psych merge for a riveting experience. "The Psychic" fast-forwards to the '80s for an electro-tune that displays a furious pace, a smooth bassline, and charming vocal harmonies. "Red City" has a lush piano riff that contrasts with the song's aggressive tone. Rogozo has crafted a sonic journey that is deserving of praise, in its execution as much as in its creativity. The Thunder Road Music Club will be hosting Rogozo on Aug 2nd for a performance sure to be a good time. With so many tracks to choose from, we have to go with the pop-punk tinged "Dream" streaming for you below. - Rene Cobar
