New Music Video: "Seven Days" - The Dove & The Wolf and Sign to Fat Possum

We had already guessed that The Dove & The Wolf had been signed to a record label when we first discovered that their 2016 EP I Don't Know What To Feel had been taken down from their Bandcamp page this past fall. The duo of Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat just premiered a new music video for the single, "Seven Days," yesterday via NPR, and they also shared that I Don't Know What To Feel will be reissued on March 24 by Fat Possum with two additional tracks. Congrats, ladies! (Photo by CJ Harvey)





Mood Music: New Move - "The City Life (ft. Chanti Darling & Ripley Snell)"

Dishing out insatiable classic pop for the last five or so years, New Move go about their creative exhibition employing hints of glam, indie rock and lurid doo wop. Their new album, Back in the Habit, drops today and it features a variety of local artists, including Illmaculate, King Who, Radiation City and more. For the track we're sharing today, we're focusing on this banger with Chanti Darling and Ripley Snell on the mic.

"The City Life" has an interesting beat from Cameron Spies on keys, Jesse Bettis on guitar and bass, and a soulful vocal melody from Chanti Darling that lasts throughout the track, playing with some very silkily delivered bars from Snell. Everything about it is just delightful, and worthy of many repeated plays.

New Move are having a release show for Back in the Habit tonight at Mississippi Studios along with some sets from Y La Bamba and Hustle & Drone. Minden, Boone Howard and the Domestics will all be making guest appearances as well.





Buzz Alert! Eartheater covered by The Wire + plays The Kitchen on 02.09

A noteworthy NYC artist we completely missed in 2016 (and 2015! - probably because she seems to tour the experimental circuit, rather than the rock/DIY one) is Queens based Eartheater, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Alexandra Drewchin. Propelled by impressive confidence and multi-disciplinary talent (she is also a dancer), Alexandra creates music that's experimental and textural at heart and, in its most accessible expressions, could be described as a more abstract version of Cocteau Twins, bordering on Dead Can Dance's arcane desolation. Streaming video for 2015 single 'Homonyms' (from LP 'Metalepsis') reveals a bold and articulate artist blessed by the gift of uniqueness. Eartheater's shows have often an original coregraphy (yep, she does that too...) and recently caught the attention of The Wire, which is why we have the feeling that those who dig art that's "out there" might enjoy her upcoming show at The Kitchen on February 9th.

P.S. Clever name! is it "Earth Eater" or "Ear Theater"?





New Throbbing Chakra Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Experimentally melodic with a space-exploring volatility, Illegal Licks or 30​,​000 Thrilling, Invigorating, Penetrating, Revitalizing Vibrations Per Minute, the new release from Throbbing Chakra, is accurately if not succinctly titled. Released on cassette via River Girls, the album spreads out over an assortment of interlacing genres, remaining instrumentally linked while delving into the psychedelic drift. Catch Throbbing Chakra in action at their record release show on Saturday, February 18 at The Buffalo with Beth Israel, Flea Bite, and Ursula!





Let Gidrah Soothe Your Soul

Have the last few days got you blue? Do you find your emotions operating on a scale ranging from incredible anger to crying-into-your-whiskey sadness? Truth be told, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It's safe to say anyone with a brain likens the same frought conclusions as you, but with so much BLAH going around, what musical offering could possibly soothe our societal pain? A big dose of Gidrah just may be in order.

Sure, metal may not change the current political climate, but Gidrah's crusty sludge is just as heavy as our hearts, serving as a close sonic alignment to our collective feelings. The most recent winners of our Artist of the Month poll dropped their demo no more than two years ago but the intensity of their at times bluesy riffs, seasoned with hints of breathy punk rawness and an overall atmospheric weightiness that encompasses the glum mysteriousness of existence, make for the best form of stoner doom metal to let your mind escape to.

From their Eh, Fuck It Dude, Let's Go Destroy Cities (a message that is even more relevent now) demo to their most recent split release with doomy duo Urchin, we need more Gidrah and we need them now.
