Revival





DC's punk/emo revival duo The Obsessives release a single and announce their upcoming debut LP

Some of us are starting to feel old, hearing genre names like "emo revival". Whatever happened to emo music after those side-bangs days of myspace yore? No matter the year, there will always be kids getting their hearts broken apart and making bold eyeliner decisions, and the music must follow. DC's two-piece The Obsessives have been pals since childhood, and channeled the final bits of their collective teenage angst into a debut LP entitled "Heck No, Nancy" (a direct quote from Slaughterhouse Five). The LP was written and recorded within their last few weeks of high school and will release this September. They put a single out just a few days ago - "Daisy"- that follows two people from the first time they meet and discuss books and solitude (love-at-first-sight seems to hit peak hour during study hall/detention) to the present where their friendship "has grown into a sad display". This may be their debut LP, but it will be the duo's fourth musical release within the past three years. The Obsessive's have got the spunk of The Front Bottoms paired with the proud fetal position perfected by Dashboard Confessional. "Heck No, Nancy" is available now for pre-order via local label Near Mint on vinyl and Bandcamp.

Right now we are listening to “Comb My Hair” a heavy track with an entry yell and a loud guitar that frees itself with a “hey” of harmonies that have us singing.

Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes) schedules Baltimore show for 9/26, is working on a new record, and is releasing some stellar collabs

Baltimore's Jenn Wasner doesn't need much of an introduction, she's made quite an impact both locally and internationally with her experimental electo-lyrical duo Wye Oak and solo project Flock of Dimes. Wye Oak's "Shriek" was one of the standout indie records of 2014 - since then Wasner has been touring with the fantastic Sylvan Esso, getting her next solo release ready, and working with Andy Stack on new band material. None of her new songs are available online yet, but if you make it to one of her live shows you'll most certainly hear what's in the works. Flock of Dime's next Baltimore show isn't until September 26th at Druid Hill Park, but if you're as impatient as we are you might enjoy some sonic treats to tide you over. Warner has been releasing some killer collaborations, one being a dark pop song called "Automatic" with producer Alan Wilkis on his project Big Data. Wasner brings her dream-gloom magic into a more traditional pop set up, delivering cryptic hooks like "Here I am, Don't you want me to do it again?". Sylvan Esso's lead Amelia Meath, having started her career in the primarily a cappella trio Mountain Man, is no stranger to finding haunting harmonies. When Wasner and Meath get together to take in and take on Gillian Welch's "Everything is Free" in a video for The A.V. Club's cover series, they cast a spell. This can't really be described. I hope you'll give it a watch, especially if it's been a while since you've gotten shiver-skin from hearing something beautiful. - Leora Mandel

The Corsets

Blues rockers, The Corsets have got some great tunes on their album “Are you Lonely, Are you Scared”. With vocal harmonies, f-x ridden guitar riffs, and an overall infectious groove, The Corsets have created a trifecta of fantastic-ness. “Lady” off their EP bursts open with driving guitar, and snare, and breaks into a happily addicting guitar lick. A minute in to the song the vocals get to shine in their own gritty dirty way, well, up until the face-melting guitar solo that's filled with those toe-curling notes you can’t get enough of! All in all, these guys have got something good going on, listen to the album and take the time to see 'em live - especially when patio beers can be involved! Check out their Facebook to keep up to date with upcoming shows. -Courtney Chalapenko
