Connecticut fuzz-pop band Furnsss' wistful "New Moves"

This past August, Connecticut fuzz-pop quartet Furnsss shared 'New Moves,' its bruised yet romantic latest effort. Comprised of such guitar-grained songs as "Jansport" and "Slow Dark Water" (streaming below), the brisk release radiates with longing for love and inner peace while admirably accepting current duress and frustration. Angst does seem to be a preoccupation of Furnsss (who previously released their full-length, ‘Silent Gold,’ last year) but, with their welcoming aura, a sense of ease prevails. While the band doesn't currently have forthcoming shows listed, keep posted on their Facebook page. -  Zach Weg





The Dearly Bereft Host Holiday Matinee With Blissfully Dark Record

  The Dearly Bereft have put together a great piece of laid-back, beautiful art. Funeral Music, while dark and haunting, and sometimes completely terrifying, is a unique collection of music. Made up of pieces of several long standing bands from the Peel Region, the band really came together with a hard hitting record. From Laura Palmer, taking musical cues and title from the murder-mystery show Twin Peaks, to the ambient-folk of Some Devil, the Afghan Whigs-meets-country of Radio In The Funeral Parlour, and the rock-out finale of So It Goes, this record was short, sweet, and not a moment of filler to be found. I really loved these 7 songs, and can’t wait to see what’s still to come. December 27th, come out for a holiday matinee show at The Central, starts at 1pm sharp.

Safe Places' "Wild Ride" is a Pure Blast of Romantic Sound

Here's a group we don't know much about, except that they dropped this solid track of pretty shoegaze in our inbox. "It's a crime to call you mine," sing Safe Places in this cute track with a thrilling, screaming wall of sound backing its punkish vocals. There's something youthful and a bit thrilling in a wistful, looking at kids doing the young in love thing kind-of way about this track, and you get the sense that these kids are a bit wrapped up in their own adventures, but for once it's simply endearing. The song's a nice little encapsulation of a feeling and a mood that blasts the same hard, solid and pretty sound from the first seconds to the last, which fits a good art punkish pretty song just fine, and we'd damn well like to hear more about this band.

Datura Daydream Drop Deadly Dramatic Debut

 When I first listened to Payday off the upcoming album, The Lick Is In The Lisp by Datura Daydream, I really had no idea what to expect or think. However, the Toronto based three piece band has completely blown me away with this amazing (mostly) instrumental track. Payday starts off slow with a super funky bass riff and a catchy drum beat that justs flow so perfectly in sync. Distorted and screechy guitars transition the song through its middle, accented by the song’s few ambient lyrics, and then wraps up with a mellow groove that I still have stuck in my head. Then there’s the video, which you need to see to truly appreciate the song, as it syncs perfectly with theme and feel. Hands down, Datura Daydream is one of the acts I’m definitely keeping my eye on in the upcoming year. Make sure to get your hands on Datura Daydream’s new album, which drops on December 12 with a release party at the Holy Oak, along with guests Love McPherson, We Were Heads, and HAMS.
