Answering Machine wax unoptimistically on "Bad Luck," play Gutter Bar 1.9

Self described “sad and fast” Brooklyn powerpop quintet Answering Machine live up to their own characterization on new single “Bad Luck,” embedding their most recent output with a healthy dose of shredding and brightly lachrymose lyrics. Unwashed guitar tones underscore the progressive churn, positing a melodically grungy instrumental line, made clean by the occasional explosive solo and front woman Samantha Campanile’s sunny vox; neither depressive nor wholly optimistic, “Bad Luck” is a good groove for a warm (yet overcast) afternoon, or visiting Coney Island during the offseason. Listen below, and see Answering Machine at the Gutter Bar on January 9th, supporting Math the Band.

Katie Burden’s “Edge of Sleep”

Avant rock performer Katie Burden just released the title track of her forthcoming album Edge of Sleep, and it is a captivating representation of the song. Burden, who has spent the last few between San Francisco, Los Angles and New York, created the album with a new level of consciousness. Of the name, Burden says, “There’s that ancient Toltec wisdom that describes our conscious life as a waking dream that we sort of project into the world…’Edge of Sleep’ refers to an occurrence that shakes one from their waking dream and brings about a new perspective or way of seeing.” Title track lies somewhere between Björk and Florence and the Machine. The video depicts the frustrating place between awake and conscious and emotion, dragging a woman through a house where she can’t seem to decompress. Enjoy Burden’s new video and keep an eye out for her full album Edge of Sleep out January 30, 2020. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Enchanters - Glam-Garage Trio Lee's Palace Show Review!

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be at the jam packed Lee’s Palace for Danko Jones featuring the garage rockin’ Enchanters as the openers. This power trio, fronted by Craig Daniels, play great throwback 60’s garage rock with a heavy brit-rock influence from bands like The Kinks. Daniels’ fashion sense is second to none with the vintage striped pants he dawned as they took the stage. They opened up with a tune called “Backstabbers UK” which set the tone nicely. However they really kicked it into high gear on their third tune “Torture Chamber” which actually gives off some early KISS vibes. The guitar solo in particular ripped especially hard. “Too Late” showed off some psych rock elements but the highlight of the set was the gritty rocker “Firetruck”. The crowd popped huge as they finished the tune at a frenetic pace. The rhythm section were able to show off some of their chops during the final tune “High Heel Roller Skates”. Overall great set by Enchanters who would have certainly been hard to follow. Your next opportunity to rock out with them would be Saturday January 25th at This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton or Saturday February 15th at Bovine Sex Club. – Kris Gies





ICYMI: Gorgeous release Gorgeous

Oakland’s Gorgeous released Gorgeous this fall and we just want to give an extra shout out to the band. They’ve got a funny B-52’s vibe but with a poppier, modern clever feel we dig on hard. Where are the shows, girls? We are ready, Freddy. -Lucille Faulkner
