New Track: "Making It Right" - Sports

We already knew that Ohio's Sports had recongregated in Philly, with members Catherine Dwyer and Carmen Perry spawning wonderful side projects in Spring Onion and Addie Pray. Well, the quartet just announced that it will be releasing a new 7" split with San Francisco's Plush. Check out its lead single, "Making It Right," which premiered this morning over at NPR! And keep a lookout for the its arrival on October 20 via Father/Daughter Records. 

New Track: "Fish Fry" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

“Fish Fry” serves as the latest sampling from Slaughter Beach, Dog’s forthcoming album Birdie, which is set for release on October 27 via Lame-O Records/Big Scary Monsters. Wandering through the evening alone, while exploring the spectrum of one's emotional depths, what begins at a steady walking pace, gradually gains backend tempo. Finding a melodic middle-ground between the frustration that drives you to pull your hair out and moving on, the song’s persistent pain remains. Slaughter Beach, Dog will be performing as part of the Philly Music & Arts Fest on Saturday, September 23 at World Café Live.

New Ruby The Hatchet Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Ruby The Hatchet recently dropped an enchanting, psych-prog pill, entitled Planetary Space Child (Tee Pee Records). Rumbling and ripping through the galaxy at optimum speed, the album ventures into the darkness, maintaining a steadying, tranquil state. The band will be landing at Johnny Brenda’s this Saturday, September 9, supported by Heavy Temple and Meddlesome Meddlesome Meddlesome Bells.

Yaeji drops "Last Breath" with parody makeup tutorial vid

 NYC and Seoul-based Yaeji’s tracks have been percolating on the house scene throughout 2017 (Yaeji’s killer rework of “Passionfruit” is exhibit A). Her latest single, a breathy and breathless deep house banger, sees the DJ/producer threatening a real breakthrough. Released by the LA/NYC music label GODMODE (who’ve been consistently dropping fire Yaeji tracks), “Last Breath” is a sonically fascinating haze-collage of Yaeji’s icy, wispy vocals merged with stylish, soulful synth and percussion touches. It all coheres beautifully. The vaguely tribal percussion really does the trick. Icing on the cake is the make-up tutorial video accompanying “Last Breath,” which reveals a sneakily brilliant media/self-awareness. Yaeji is no joke. -juan leon

Sore Thumb brings sunny, surfy rock to Feral on 9.22

To call the Bay Area’s Sore Thumb surf rock would be a restrictive oversimplification. While the beginning half of their debut LP An Album By… is straight-up, 60s inspired, reverb-drenched rock, the record moves on from that pretty quickly. A few of the middle tracks, like “No Right, No Wrong” and “Meltdown,” explore darker undertones and move deeper into the territory of alternative rock. However, like a rubber band snapping back into shape, the sunny, surfy rock that Southern California has grown to love returns in “That’s Why” (streaming below) and remains throughout the end of the track list. This LP is also accompanied by a visual album that is streaming on the band’s YouTube. Currently, the LP is available for free download for anyone who attends a show or connects with the band on Facebook. Catch their next live show at Feral in Oakland on September 22nd. - Lilly Milman
