Ness Heads “Pretty” Video

Ness Heads has released the Exhbit 91 directed video for her most recent single, “Pretty”. The track has an addictive beat created by Chicago Native, LA-Based produce Vince Nantes.

Ness Heads is the heavy hitting Hip Hop persona of Vanessa Ortiz, and “Pretty” is her third and potentially breakthrough single. The lyrics may come across as verbose, but we actually see them as empowering as this track was written in response to unkind words thrown her way by an acquaintance.

New Track: "Cemetery" - Tapes & Tubes

Hauntingly beautiful strings set the stage for “Cemetery,” the new single from Austin Potter, a.k.a. Tapes & Tubes. The song has an eerie, fall mix of bright sun and a chilly breeze, as the scene is laid out in deep spoken-word detail. That desolate, quiet stillness of an old small town, imagining the lives of those who have passed on in prose form as one takes a moment to remember those who may seem forgotten. Bourbon & Branch will play host to a billing on Thursday, November 29 that will include Tapes & Tubes, C.M. Slenko, and C.R. Gennone.

Steve Gunn announces album, debuts psych-folk single

Steve Gunn is perhaps best known for his collaborations, having contributed his psychedelic-tinged folk guitar playing to tracks by Kurt Vile, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Michael Chapman, among others. But beyond that, Gunn is also a quality songwriter. His newest solo work—The Unseen In Between, out January 19th via Matador Records—continues the practice of those releases allowing Gunn’s talents to take center focus. The first single “New Moon” takes a 5-minute crash course into the guitarist's style and influences, beginning with tape-crisped acoustic guitar and floating vocals that welcome in tremolo-doused electric guitar and further adventuring into gentle psychedelia. Like much of Gunn’s work, it’s a drifting track that maintains soft edges and fits perfectly to light pensive moods. Watch the lyric video for “New Moon” below. – Cameron Carr

Weakened Friends bring tour to Burlington & play with Clever Girls at Higher Ground (11.14)

Burlington is in for a storm tonight. Locals Clever Girls will be joined at the Showcase Lounge of Higher Ground by fellow New Englanders Weakened Friends from Portland, Maine, who are currently touring with NYC's Nervous Dater. This tour de force of ferocious indie rock is sure to melt a few faces and maybe even leave a few tearing up, given the fact that Clever Girls have the uncanny ability to shred while simultaneously dance delicately around broken hearts with lyrics like "I will bite my tongue, I won't think out loud  / about how dumb I always get when I see you smile" (from "Dumb Smile.") They don't attempt to be overly clever or tongue-in-cheek or didactic about subjects like love or self-doubt. Their debut LP Luck (streaming below) shows the band isn't afraid to shoot in the dark; maybe they even prefer it that way, letting the goosebumps guide them as they fumble around, seeing what creates a spark. From the look of this album, it seems that they've figured out the formula for finding what's real and drowning out the rest. - Lilly Milman, photo by Hannah Blauner

New Track: "A Whole New Jupiter" - Writhing Squares

Out of the Ether is the forthcoming album from Philly sound sculptors Writhing Squares, which is slated for release on January 25, 2019 via Trouble In Mind Records. Exploring an extensive futuristic landscape within the free jazz jam of “A Whole New Jupiter,” the continuous thump of synth and percussion drives this progression. That relentless ferocity eventually branches off into pockets of intriguing experimentation. A heart-racing unpredictability finds a heaviness that manages to maintain a grounded cohesion no matter how far the nearly twenty-minute adventure spirals outward.
