Sángo Drops New Short Film "South End"

 Of all the places in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle finds itself home to great producers and hip-hop. One of the main proprietors of such is Sángo, who has been making some of the funkiest beats for almost two decades. He's got a whole new album's worth of tracks coming to us, titled In the Comfort Of, but in the meantime, he's dropped a different type of art piece - a short film.

Set to the tune of "One More Thing," one of the songs off of In the Comfort Of, South End is a home-based project, artistically looking at the youth living in South End, Seattle. The film is centered around how everyone needs to do what they can to protect the youth out there from any harm.

"They have a future ahead of them, and it's important we highlight that," says Sángo. "We have to make sure we uplift them, even when they don't want to accept the reality of growing up. South End forever."

Watch South End below, and keep an ear out for In the Comfort Of.





Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue plays C'mon Everybody 12.07, releases debut EP in January

Those partial to the slow-jam sounds of The Weather Channel's past and layered vocal harmonies a la Freddie will find solace in the music of Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue, the newest project of Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn, formerly of Ghost Beach. Mendelsohn's brought his funk to tour with bands like Imagine Dragons and Walk The Moon; now, he's landed it in the studio, where he forged Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue's eponymous debut EP, out on January 5th. To promote the record, the Revue will play C'mon Everybody on Thursday 12/7 along with Sam O B and Pilot Violet. For a taste of their salacious sound, check out the groovy first single "I Stand Corrected", below. - Will Sisskind





Synthpop duo Tmboy (ex Tomboy) returns to Mercury on 01.12

Tmboy (ex Tomboy) is the electronic duo of Sarah Aument and Will Shore and their music should tickle the curiosity of fans of Sylvan Esso. While Sarah paints rolling hills of stars with her keyboard stacks, Will mans the beat machine while also filling out the sound on a real vibraphone. Soulful and genuine, Sarah's vocals are reminiscent of an intriguing blend of Chvrches and Bjork, with lyrics way above the average for what sounds like moody party music. 

Their next show is a late night party at Mercury Lounge, starting at midnight on Friday, January 12th. Also performing: Novelty Daughter, Akki, No Intimate, R.E.L. Check out tense and edgy single "Roll Out" from their 2014 debut LP "Tomboy." -  Meghan Rose





BUZZ ALERT! Indie artist Roxiny drops new video for song "Lights"

We're going to go ahead and call it, NYC-based artist Roxiny is one to watch. With powerful but tempered vocals, Roxiny produces haunting, poignant music that is at times reminiscent of Reflektor-era Arcade Fire, but with some serious teeth.  The indie musician recently released a new video for her single "Lights," a song that opens with subtle synths-as-sirens, and was written in response to the Chelsea Bombing . Shot in black and white, the clip showcases NYC as told by Roxiny--highlighting abandoned buildings and small laundromats, and celebrating the way her message penetrates the city in a fierce, grassroots way. Check out the video for "Lights" streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni 





Debut Etheric Felines EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The triad of Etheric Felines recently released its debut EP The Selves We Bury via Magic Death Sounds. Threading components of electro-noise and hip-hop within a fog of murky mystery, these songs impose a will of dangerous, dreamy discovery. Shrouded in the unknown, one wanders through the abandoned buildings of the future, using the sonic signal as a honing device. Trek through the cluttered and chaotic ambiance in pursuit of the final destination, lying in the distance.
