Hypoluxo releases debut album 'If Language' + plays Our Wicked Lady on 10.07

If you love musical paradoxes (and indie pop) we recommend you to check out Brooklyn quartet Hypoluxo, a band that combines a rather serene dream pop with crepuscular and monotone male vocals. The dichotomy actually works: the tracks' harmonic content is rich enough to entertain the ear, while Ocampo's dark tenor, appearing only occasionally, adds a layer of maudit character that true rock fans will find appealing. If you like the RIYL game, here it is: Real Estate, Joy Division, Lloyd Cole and the Commotion. The band will be releasing debut album 'If Language' on September 30th, playing Our Wicked Lady on October 7th, and then leaving for a truly insane 40+ day fall tour which should be named "the clockwise tour of the US of A." Way to go Hypoluxo, safe trips!

The Shacks about to release debut EP, play BKLYN Bazaar on 09.29

Should you be in need of a magical something that can lull you to sleep during your stressful life in the city, look no further than Brooklyn's The Shacks and their first official single "Left It With The Moon." The song employs a timeless melody, Shannon Wise's delicate soprano, and a few other rather rudimental instruments to reach into the listener's buried childhood - and the sleeping proneness it entails: if sleeping like a baby is your ida of happiness, The Shacks are your kind of band. Earlier this year, the duo also unveiled a collaboration with instrumental NYC band El Michels Affair, which resulted in stunning single 'Strange Boy,' a more produced dream pop gem with shades of doo-wop complemented by an appropriately noir video (also streaming). Their self titled debut EP is scheduled to be released on October 28. Don't miss their Brooklyn Bazaar show on September 29!

Breanna Barbara brings her folkedelic blues rock to Sunnyvale on 10.27

With her third release Mirage Dreams, Brooklyn-based (via Minnesota and Florida) Breanna Barbara has put out an uber confident record that defies time and space. Her peculiar blend of blues, folk, and psychedelia transports us to the west coast in the summer of 1968. Yet, the word revival sounds reductive here: behind the familiar overdriven organs, twangy guitars, and expanded jams, live rare intensity and power. The album title track (streaming below) perfectly examplifies this artist's - quite literally - howling fervor. Don’t miss your chance to see her live at Sunnyvale on October 27, where she'll bring her tales of melancholy dreams, delusions, and demons.
