Jäh Division find dub in the music of Ian Curtis, play Secret Project Robot 1.26

Branding oneself as a “psychedelic dub interpretation of Joy Division” is a move certain to raise eyebrows, but Brooklyn noise quartet Jäh Division’s take on the music of Ian Curtis is executed with a remarkable amount of confident experimentation and self-assuredness. While it’s not surprising that Jäh Division started as a joke between roommates Brad Truax and Barry London, a self-described “good smoke and a joke,” their nine-track LP Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again is more than another sophomoric meme album. Truax and London, in collaboration with members of Oneida and Home, create spacey, discordant soundscapes throughout Dub that rely upon components of Joy Division’s music as a backbone while expanding outwards into something completely different; at face value their music is familiar in melody only, with their phaser-laden employ of the Curtis’ vocal lines from songs like “Disorder” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” but the end result is more indicative of the group’s respective electronic instrumental chops. While not for everyone, Dub Will Tear Us Apart is an interesting, defiantly different interpretation of post-punk made by and for those who crave New York’s weirdest sounds.

Jäh Division will play a record release show on January 26th at Secret Project Robot, supported by Mourning A BLK Star. Stream Dub Will Tear Us Apart... Again below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Zelma Stone’s “Light Bulb Boy” Exciting Taste Off New EP

There is nothing usual about the vocal powerings of Zelma Stone’s front woman, Chloe Zelma Studebaker. How do we mean that? There are the self-proclaimed modern influences of Angel Olson (we hear that), the haunting calls like Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick, some Kate Bush feels. This stuff is hard to find and there’s a blooming of those same types of lyrical and vocal strengths within this work, repackaged into a more modern type of dreamy folk with some touch-of-grunge rock. Tracks like “Light Bulb Boy” and “River” have surprising key-shifts, killer baselines, sexy drums and a smack of tamborine. Challenging, fierce and empowering. Let’s go see them tomorrow night, where Richshaw Stop hosts their album release party. January the 19th with an all female-fronted bill of Mayya & The Revolutionary Hell Yeah, Moon Daze and Mae Powell. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





Singer-songwriter/producer David Smalt releases single "dear old Earth"

David Smalt dropped his new single "dear old Earth", and it's every bit as professionally tuned and yet DIY-esque and loose as his previous release, the 2018 debut LP Fragile Magick. Smalt's vocal range and dreamy delivery shine on the new track, which features his sparse guitar strumming tucked into waves of dark synths and a clockwork drum machine. Though the first part of the song contains wonderful lyrics written in Smalt's poetic style, the second half washes you away into a climax of chords and tremolo before sinking you into a watery soundscape and fading to a single note. It's got the bedroom pop vibe that's catching all the attention online, but "dear old Earth" shines in its execution and production. Don't sleep on it; listen to the track below. - Will Sisskind
