Blood Sound Album Release Show at Ortlieb's Aug. 7

Darkwave trio Blood Sound can provide some shade from the unrelenting heat of summer. The group dishes kinetic, inspiring songs propelled by heart-thumping bass lines that team up with synths that reach past the known perimeters and percussion that steadily ties it together. The collective sound is bathed in the murky unknown of what lies in the cavern of one’s mind, yet the lure to explore that area persists. Tonight at Ortlieb’s, they celebrate the release of their new record Too Much Sun and Not Enough Gloom at the Beach. The Morelings, with a Jeff Zeigler-produced debut LP in the works, perform this evening as a chilling under current lies in wait amid their the hypnotic dream of sound. The cinematic, tension-teasing synth of Nearest and the tormenting calm of chaotic noise that is New York’s Winkie complete a bill that offers a guiding hand, daring you to venture into the darkness. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


The Stammer Album Release Show at The Fire July 31

With a calm, consistent advance, post-punk trio The Stammer continue its march forward. Steady, spoken vocals, delivered by Brian Brotman, offers an air of calm despite the sometimes melancholy narrative, as a clean siren of guitar rings true and the percussion provides that persistent push forward towards the surrounding setting. Tonight, at The Fire, the band celebrates its new release Days in Between, with the comforting psych-pop charge of Mock Suns, who impose a pleasant atmosphere that accelerates at specific instrumental intervals, asserting force onto a gentle peaceful wave. The frenzied synth-friendly gloom-pop of Blood Sound has that knack for keeping you on your toes, and since you’re on your feet, one might as well embrace it. Brooklyn lo-fi dream-pop crew Exiles helps to usher in an evening that pleasantly clouds headspace with a constant rolling current. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Roam Deeper Into the Labyrinth w/Edelweiss at Mantua Yacht Club July 25

Calculated but not cold, Edelweiss captures the precision of math-rock while developing an open-air feel. This juxtaposition allows expansive scenic musical routes to unfold as one roams deeper into the labyrinth. Tonight at Mantua Yacht Club, they will be joined by Howlish, whose folky, personal songwriting takes a freeing ambient dash with vocals that incorporate a yearning. The danceably dark, percussive-synth electronic tone of Blood Sound gets the blood flowing while simultaneously keeping you on high alert, soothing but with an eerie sense of danger, and they just released a new set of material Too Much Sun and Not Enough Gloom at the Beach. A pair of Union, New Jersey bands including the emotive folk of Fire is Motion and the melodic experimental journey of El Americano completes this bill. Mantua Yacht Club, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8:30pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita
