GRAZER - DOOM-JAM ROCK

Grazer is a pyschadelic heavy soul band. Sounds intense. They have a trippy EP out there right now titled "Pachyderm". The title track kicks it off with a deep, dragging guitar lick. It's tone is mesmerizing. The tune takes a turn about 2 and a half minutes in when they fire it up and the drummer gets excited. How bout some dual guitar solos? Done. Funk bass licks? Done. The vocals sound like something from the late 80's/early 90's phase that was in between hair metal and grunge. This epic 7 plus minute tune will keep you guessing. If you wanna hear some doom-jam rock then Grazer is your band. - Kris Gies

New Laser Background LP Available for Streaming

Always up for testing musical boundaries, Laser Background's Andy Moholt fearlessly journeys from birth to death while taking a deep look within for his new album Dark Nuclear Bogs. The ten-song LP just might prove to be his most cohesive and enjoyable release to date under the moniker. Dark Nuclear Bogs officially drops on April 28, and will be available via Mutual Crush/Endless Daze, but you can now stream it over at Stereogum. The band will also begin its extensive tour of the U.S. and Canada this evening, which will be making a stop home this Saturday, April 29 at Baird Mansion Atrium for the group's album release celebration with Norwegian Arms and Breathers.





Fruit & Flowers play Alphaville on April 28th

Fruit & Flowers return to ALPHAVILLE in Bushwick on April 28th, this time to headline a show after supporting Monograms' LP release show there last week. After performing at SXSW in March, the psych rock quartet has had a busy April playing gigs with other fellow Brooklyn bands and wrapping up a tour across the Midwest. At ALPHAVILLE, they'll share a bill with punk groups C'yotes and Teen Vice, the latter of which includes Tammy Hart of MEN and Joshua Ackley of The Dead Betties. Catch below their latest track "Way Out", written for Speak Into My Good Eye's 3rd Annual 24 Hour Song Writing Challenge, and the live version as the band performed it on Manhattan Neighborhood Network's The Special Without Brett Davis, here. - Will Sisskind

Vacant Lots release new album Endless Night, confirm two US shows and European tour

Following up on their critically acclaimed 2014 debut album “Departure,” the NYC/Burlington duo Vacant Lots have released sophomore LP “Endless Night.”  Building off of a previously established psych-drone base, Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen introduce new sonic elements to their sound. Uncharacteristically, “Night Nurse” (streaming below) adds mechanized electronics and robotic vocals to twangy guitar lines, suggesting a digitized outlaw world portrayed in sci-fi dramas like HBO’s Westworld; the Krafter-esque experiment works.  “Pleasure & Pain” mimic Rolling Stones-style chords and sprinkle otherworldly keyboard elements around an attenuated vocal delivery, while  “Elevation” delves further into electro-dance patterns that skirt the appeal of a band like Depeche Mode.  Reaching the albums longest track at over five and a half minutes, “Empty Space” serves up a trance groove paired with spoken-word vocals.  Eight new tracks in all, the inclusion of nyc underground legend Alan Vega of Suicide’s posthumous scream-of-conscious poetic howl on closer “Suicide Note” delivers the desired validation.  The album can be heard in its entirety here on Spotify. - Dave Cromwell
