Micropixie’s “Como Mínimo” Video

San Francisco’s Micropixie creates spacey warm sounds with a sixties French psych pop feel. It’s a multilingual, multi-genre listening experience addressing social norms, masculinity, and gender and cultural identity. The video for “Como Mínimo” is a captivating and thought-provoking viewing experience that we recommend. Singles have been sprinkling out of upcoming album Dark Sight of the Moon and we’re bracing ourselves for the full release this week. Out the third of May. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

New Body Meat Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Body Meat is the musical alias of Christopher Taylor, whose newest release Truck Music represents a radical departure in vision from their earlier rock-oriented works. Backed by an evolving cast of players, the most recent iteration of the project features Mathew Anderegg on percussion. The constant volley of rhythmic samples and synths hammer the listener with the driving force of post-punk played out through an R&B lens. On the whole, Truck Music is more groove than grind - the momentum behind each track favors danceability over thrashing. Recordings like “No Garden” eek out traces of James Blake’s early works, reconfiguring sounds from the post-dub movement of the early 2010’s into music that is absolutely refreshing. Truck Music feels progressive, in that it is creatively expansive with little regard for boundaries, and yet the new direction feels wholly intuitive and natural.

Weekend Warrior, April 19 - 21

The Madalean Gauze Band commemorates its latest release, Nothing Feels Beautiful Anymore (The Deli Philly’s April Record of the Month), with a fantabulous show this Saturday at Boot & Saddle. The all-female outfit unites an enchanting/tumultuous resound – one that taps into deeply personal songwriting, while retaining a playful, psych approach. That ability to acknowledge life’s pleasantries and pitfalls, as part of a larger learning experience, is encapsulated in beguilingly memorable tunes, which will be brought to life at one of our favorite Philly listening rooms. The femme fatales will also be supported by the fantasy daydream of Tim Meskers’s Garden Gate and the Jo Kusy-fronted four-piece Pouring Silver. So for those of you who are looking for a bit of 4/20 weirdness, you now know where to go. – Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Hanging Out of Cars" - Empath

Empath's Active Listening: Night on Earth is slated to arrive on May 3 via Get Better Records. Directed by Ali Donohue (Fleabite, Swanning, Waxahatchee), a new video has emerged for "Hanging Out of Cars”. Amphibians scatter across and traverse various vibrantly colored, craftily constructed, outdoor settings. The noisy, psych-tinged soundscapes are wonderfully enriched by the video's creatively intriguing landscapes.

Bailey Minzenberger “Dramamine"

Singer/Songwriter Bailey Minzenberger recently released her debut LP, Dramamine. The album’s lead track and first single single is called “One”, and sets a tone for an album that blends lyrics that paint a picture of being cold, outside both physically and mentally, with music and vocals that tend to be warm and inviting.

You can catch Bailey Minzenberger on April 27th at TACO Spring Show (2215 S. Ford Ave) on April 27th with Mock Nine, Vision in Rhythm, North Lodge, Free Range, and many more.
