Slum Summer releases kaleidoscopic new single "Trampoline," new LP out 1/18

An uncommon merging between two San Diego locals and two British musicians, Slum Summer's "Trampoline" is like a kaleidoscope of percussion, obscure lyrics, and satisfying guitar riffs.  Lead vocalist Hugh J. Noble is a true raconteur and has an all but ordinary approach to capturing his audience's focus on more than just the composition, but to truly engage yourself in the story being told to you. The upbeat single is a mope-rock masterpiece that crafts new lines through the genre, and with “Trampoline” as their teaser, they make the wait for the album just that much more agonizing. 

"Trampoline" is taken from Slum Summer's forthcoming album, ABABO, which they will release on January 18 via Jigsaw Records. Kayla Hay

Glacial Palms shares enigmatic new single, "Dreams Elusive"

Glacial Palms look back as a way to look forward on "Dream Elusive." On their enigmatic new single, the sibling-formed six-piece further their intricate, wintry folk-rock in both sound and personnel, given that their new project is a reimagining of their previous band, Sikamor. There's a renewed sense of energy in "Elusive," less so in expansion and more so in subtlely, as they carefully tailor brother and sister Rafael and Fiona Cansino's classically-trained vocals over a soft blanket of descending arpeggios and ambient keys. Theirs is a careful reflection of how the dreams we hold have great significance, even if they're not as tangible as we'd like them to be.

"Dreams Elusive" is the leadoff single off of Glacial Palms' latest EP of the same name. You can listen to it now via their official Soundcloud page. Juan Rodríguez

SASAMI releases lovable video for latest single, "Not the Time," plays The Echo on 1/4

SASAMI brings genuine likability and charisma on her latest video for "Not the Time." Shot in 16mm throughout different pockets of Pasadena and Highland Park, the rising singer-songwriter cruises around with a french horn on her side as she makes friends with a colorful cast of characters. The direction she takes from a visual standpoint adds a welcome levity to the otherwise heartrending track, where she calls defeat to a thorny relationship over some lush, shoegaze-informed clusters of guitar distortion.

"Not the Time" was featured on her recently-released 7'' split single, Not the Time / Callous. Catch her perform at The Echo before the hype catches up on her January on 4 at The Echo. Juan Rodríguez

Pure Mids bring a sleek, new wave sound on new single "Don't Quit"

The last time we heard of Pure Mids was late last year when they released their cascading, jangle-pop single "Maybe It's Alright." The trio of Will Gonzalez, Steve Martinez, and Daniel Jurado are back with new single "Don't Quit," where they sculpt a sleek, new wave sound that complements rather than offsets their past EP, Optimistic-ism. They shake off the heartache at a quick pace, as its punchy rhythm section takes charge over an oscillating keyboard line that loops around a softly-layered guitar progression.

"Don't Quit" is available now on all streaming platforms. Juan Rodríguez

Ruby Throated are at their best on inspired new single, "My Worst"

Ruby Throated spin around with regretful acknowledgment on "My Worst." The positively brainy new single by the progressive pop four-piece sounds as flummoxed as the song's conflicted subject, where their fractured time signatures give an air of distress to someone whose hopeless endeavor to make things better makes them fall deeper and deeper. Led by Jocelyn Raulston's playful vocals, the band introduce oft-kilter meters over eclectic jazz elements - it serves to mention that all band members come from academic musical backgrounds - with an otherwise agile simplicity. But nothing about "My Worst" sounds too studious or elaborate, as they let their free-spirited groove guide them with a joyful release. 

"My Worst" is the first single off of Ruby Throated's forthcoming EP, Breakfast Table Omen, which will be self-released on January 4. Juan Rodríguez
