New Body Electric's Newest Single

This past Monday, New Body Electric released a single, “Cash Cache.” As indicated by the title, the song is about the relationship artists form with the money needed to support themselves and their art. It’s a fairly serious topic, one the band handles with delicate sensibility. It’s actually a cheerful song, with a pleasantly immersive melody and vocals that are just the right amount of breathy. What makes it strong is the quiet but persistent sense of melancholy underlying each note. It’s the perfect song for when you’re tired of feeling sad, and you need to ease yourself into a better mood.

On Friday, New Body Electric will be playing a release show at The Cruzroom Annex. Motorcoat will also be playing a set. You can find out more information on the event's Facebook page

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.

Sparkle Carpet

Feminist folk trio Sparkle Carpet are the tough, goth ladies we’ve been waiting for. Their album, We Do Stares, has such an “I don’t give a shit” attitude that reviewing it almost feels redundant. Emphasis on almost. Their music is lively and boisterous. “Mrs. Robinson Digs Me,” a playful take on the Simon & Garfunkel original, is incredibly fun to listen to. The use of triangle adds an enjoyably childlike aspect to the songs, but in no way does it make the music childish. It makes the music sharper, bringing attention to the cheeky smirks behind each word sung. Other songs, such as “You Don’t Think” reveal the steely inner core at the heart of the band. The resolve and determination in the song’s hoarse vocals are rousing.

Sparkle Carpet's next show is Friday, April 19th at Murder Mine. Loud in the Morning, Earth of Foxes, Geophagia will also be playing sets.
