New Music Video: "Soft Shape" - Empath

Active Listening: Night on Earth, the forthcoming album from Empath, is slated to arrive on April 2 via Get Better Records. The sounds of nature are quickly traded for the more immediate thump of bass as the album’s lead single, “Soft Shape,” comes into focus. Encircled by creepy dolls as synth eerily rings, there’s a creepy mesmerizing quality to the band's accompanying video. As though in a neon fog, a magnetizing, mysterious aesthetic unfolds, and as the instrumental ending suggests, it's part candy, part chaos. (Photo by Alysse Gafkjen)

The Beach Bats - Indie-Surfers Dark New Single "How Long"

Hamilton’s indie-surf rockers The Beach Bats have dropped a new single “How Long”. This laid back tune has the singer Tony Doni singing real low throughout the verse similar to Jim Morrison. The chorus is big and features some great backing vocals from Stephanie Pearl and Lauren Mikeala.  The surfy guitar licks of Chelsea White give the tune the classic Beach Bats character and keeps the surf vibes alive in this dark rocker tune. The Beach Bats play “The Bout” at the Hideout on March 1st. – Kris Gies

Bug Seance EP

Bug Seance is releasing their first album March 1st, and for now has 3 songs available to stream on their Bandcamp. Each song speaks volumes of the work and detail the band puts into their music. Their genre-blending style combines shoegaze inspired bridges with more high energy riffs and vocals. At times they sound faintly reminiscent of No Doubt’s earliest work. The jazzy ambient notes function as a smooth, enticing outer layer. It’s an impressive first release.

Bug Seance’s next show is this Thursday, February 21st at No Fun alongside The Strid and Better Humans. You can also catch them at their release show at the Waypost, on March 1st. Spiller and Jazz Boyfriends will also be playing sets.

Pale Ramon, Phase One and Yuli play Revolution Vol. #36 on 02.23

The monthly appointment with The Revolution, the series organized by National Sawdust and featuring emerging local talent, is back this coming Saturday (February 23) with Volume #36

Three artists coming from varied musical backgrounds will grace the venue's stage: Pale Ramon is a brand new duo featuring Emanuel Ayvas of Emanuel and the Fear and Kevin Plessner of Oceanographer / Monuments, artists we covered extensively in this very blog. Their music walks the line between the intense songwriting of Jeff Buckley and the edgy arrangements of post-rock luminaires Tortoise.

Blending Hip Hop with melodic elements, a variety vocal samples and even jazzy bass lines, the latest single by rapper Phase One (entitled Citii Boy) shows a musician interested in taking the genre in new places, with results that sounds effortless and well produced. 

Yuli might only have one track available online (Her, streaming below), but it's a song that may cast a spell on you. Soulful and experimental, this single strikes a perfect balance between intensity, melody and sonic exploration, taking us back to the day trip-hop ruled the world.

Listen to these three artists in the files streaming (the YouTube video has two tracks) and don't miss their live performance at Revolution #36 - tickets are here.
