New Track: "Strangled by Stars" - The Skating Party

Patetico Recordings recently released a charitable compilation, Rock Back: Stronger Than the Storm, aimed to support victims of Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria. “Strangled By Stars,” the new single from The Skating Party, a.k.a. Gregory James, is one of 50 songs included on the collection. Reverberating guitar provides an electrical storm to the head that lingers in a cloudy daydream haze, while the ascending vocals demonstrate a hopeful resilience.





Idgy Dean takes her energetic solo show to Baby's All Right on 11.22

Idgy Dean is a performer. More than just a talented musician, her shows are a rapture of energy, untamed and unrestrained. She performs with a sense of freedom; an independence and willingness to abandon constraints. Skipping between instruments as she loops sounds and constructs her own sonic world, Idgy Dean is in control. It may feel chaotic, untamed and unrestrained, but she is in control. As she pounds on the drums, slides across the neck of the guitar, slurs into the mic, Idgy Dean is in control. There are plenty of videos showing her restless, solo live performances (the best one is streaming below), but they are something worth experiencing in person. You'll have an opportunity to do so tomorrow (November 22) at Baby’s All Right. – Cameron Carr





Gothic Tropic refine their unruly pop songcraft at The Teragram Ballroom

Gothic Tropic have been poised for a breakthrough for far too long. But lead songwriter Cecilia Della Peruti seems unconcerned with the prospect, possessing a maturity in her unruly pop songs that reveals her growth as an artist. Peruti has joined Northern England post-punk revival veterans Maxïmo Park for two nights in California, starting with LA’s very own Teragram Ballroom, where her minty Stratocaster set forth a commanding weave of staccato lines that fall somewhere between lavish psych rock and clean, yet amped up notes à la Lindsey Buckingham.

Peruti applies her very own technique on her latest release Fast and Feast, and it does translate even better on a live setting, where she handles her chord patterns comfortably as her four band mates provide a more wholesome environment. Most of her set washed over like a calm wave, but once she closed the set with the soaring, solo-heavy Stronger, it truly felt like all bets were off. And then it shortly ended. But Peruti accomplished what many opening acts regularly fail to accomplish throughout her punchy, 35-minute set: to leave a mainly unbeknownst audience curious and wanting for more.

Debut Stoops EP Available for Streaming & Download

Kidhood, the debut EP from Stoops, was co-produced with Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, Tremellow), who also recently worked on The Districts' latest LP Popular Manipulations. Warping keys and a rhythmic bass, "Flashlight" shines through the darkness with its existential love song sound, while “Loser Denial” wants to break loose from its opening, but you get a sense that its protagonist feels trapped. There’s a tight, melodic, storytelling quality with a hint of instrumental force that makes one wonder where the next recordings will go.





Young Jesus

Young Jesus has released a cool stop motion video for their new single “Feeling”. The song comes from their recently digitally released self-titled album. The album will released in physical formats in February via Saddle Creek.
