Star Club bring a true "Nightmare" to life

Back when the weather and spirits alike were a bit brighter, we shared the first music video from art-wavers Star Club called "Saturday Night," along with a deeper look into the makes of the band and their late summer album Sixth Avenue Motel. We're now pleased to share the latest to come from the album, a music video for the smoothly loungy track "Nightmare."

Monochrome and wonderfully shot, the video for "Nightmare" creatively evokes the horror of how nightmares can feel so much like reality. In it, vocalist/guitarist Nate Lown is somewhat the cool, cornfield narrator hanging back as bassist Marcus Pizotchi is kidnapped and taken to a desolate location where some procedures are performed on him. If you've ever dreamt of some sort of Taken-meets-Saw situation the thought of this actually happening is terrifying, but at least Star Club make it look moody and cool.

See Star Club perform "Nightmare" and other songs off of Sixth Avenue Motel tomorrow headlining the Turn Turn Turn with a debut set from Martha Stax (members of Star Club, Rare Diagram, Ancient Elk and more), Wave Action and Oort. Also, send some birthday love to Pizotchi.





The New Respects need "Something To Believe In" on soulful single

Nashville's soulful pop group The New Respects have exploded to a national audience in 2017 from Rolling Stone naming them one of "10 Artists You Need To Know" to opening for Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Their sound is ear-catchingly funky and dance-inducing. Their newest single, "Something To Believe In", "is about the longing to believe in goodness when it looks like there is no reason to," shares group member Jasmine Mullen. Hear the song below and catch The New Respects on tour with St. Paul and the Broken Bones at Marathon Music Works on December 1st! - Chris Thiessen

Visual Vices: Brown Calculus - "Self Care"

 Back in June, we shared one of the first recordings of "Self Care" by Brown Calculus. They had just hit our radar and thankfully so, because they haven't left it since. Last month they released a lovingly and beautifully shot video for the track and tonight, they're marking another moment; the drop of a new EP titled Live at the Map Room.

Live at the Map Room will actually be played by Brown Calculus live at Mississippi Pizza right around now, following a set from Just Pretend. It's going to be packed, so consider peeping the video for "Self Care" below. It's the opposite of disappointment. 





The DropUps - Junction City EP Release Party Friday!

Toronto based band The DropUps have quite an eclectic mix of influences. Their sound has been described as “Joe Strummer, Tom Waits and Manu Chao walk into a bar and request the Specials on the jukebox as Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello dances up a storm.” They have recorded a 3 song EP at Trouble Town Records Studio which is due for release on November 17th. Their release party is the same day at Junction City Music Hall. Listen to “Pingai” and get a feel for what’s in store for November 17th from the Drop Ups. – Kris Gies
