New Chill Dad LP Available for Streaming & Download

The duo of Zack Williams and Nicholas Kearns, a.k.a. Chill Dad, recently shared their new self-titled LP. Coasting in a hypnotic, bedroom cloud, these songs marinate in an aqueous groove. Pulsating in a relaxed, ethereal state, it's easy to light up and get lost in these sun-kissed tracks. "Cause it's Friday... And you ain't got shit to do!"





Mini Trees release emotional new single "Take it Back"

"Take it Back" sounds like an intimate story come to life. As if stumbling into an open diary, the reflective new single by Mini Trees - the solo project of singer-songwriter Lexi Vega - establishes a meditative mood which befits its patient catharsis. Vega is not a showy performer - her raw vocal delivery is meant to absorb and not impress the listener, as it's an affective force which underscores the song's lingering guitar lead. It's also imbued with a gentle ambiance, an element which adds and never disrupts its true essence and further reveals her emotional authenticity.

Given that this is the beginning of Vega's project, it's only a matter of time until she makes a visit to your venue of choice. - Juan Rodríguez

Mothica brings dynamic synth-pop to Mercury on 08.16

Mothica’s music relies heavily on those dynamic shifts in mood and energy that have become increasingly popular since the EDM bubble burst and more and more artists lifted their ideas into different genres. For the most part, these ideas can fall flat, sounding like cheap excuses to up the amplitude, but this Brooklyn via Oklahoma City transplant infuses these bursts of energy with endearing and tender moments that make each song a thrill to experience. Residing somewhere in between chillwave and bedroom pop, her music comes to life with soft pulses of electronica and gentle drums before her commanding voice takes center stage. It’s only when the hook comes in on songs like “Water Me Down” do the moments of bombast hit an emotional apex; wobbling synths sideswipe and careen upward in a powerful moment of emotional vulnerability. Her music makes for cinematic displays of affection and hurt. You can catch her performing live on August 16 at Mercury Lounge, and you can stream her music below. –Tucker Pennington





Curling release LP 'Definitely Band' & embark on summer tour

The sophomore LP by Berkeley band Curling, entitled Definitely Band, is a feel-good frenzy of jangly shoegaze rock. This release — a mix of Beatlesque melodies that blow up and pop like bubble gum and fervently executed guitar riffs that make your heart jitter — is entirely their own. The second track on the album, “Flutter” (streaming below), genuinely brings about a thrilling frission, even on your tenth or eleventh spin of the track. Curling have outdone themselves this time. They will be playing at The Down & Out in L.A. on August 16, and then kicking off a summer tour the following day. - Lilly Milman





Kaleidoscope Horse - Theatrical Dream Pysch Band release new single "Behaviour"

Theatrical dream-psych band Kaleidoscope Horse have released a new epic video for their track “Behaviour”. Produced by Brandon Bak and Tobin Hopwood (from Possum) with cinematography by Slone Mcgowan; this video is filled with unusual characters, a mesmerizing space age pysch-rock song and an overall calm chaos throughout. The video is as ambitious as the song itself. Both extremely creative. Behold Kaleidoscope Horse for yourself live at their “Slow, Slow” Album Release Party at the Super Wonder Gallery on August 23rd. – Kris Gies
