Time Columns provides proggy post-rock vibes on latest single

With winding, spacey instrumentals, ethereal, guitar-driven melodies, and a fair helping of chugging grit, MD's Time Columns serves up progressive rock with a decidedly post-rock feel. The band's latest single,"Body of Ash", is a much darker departure from the Chon-like, bouyant melodies of their previous releases, but the track hits hard in all the right places, and still manages to marry all of the elements that give the band their distincitve sound. Check out Time Columns streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Natural Velvet offers luscious layers of fuzzy post-punk

"Love is Love/Alien and Strange" croons Baltimore-based Natural Velvet on their latest single, and though the band's sound may be a bit alien and strange itself, we're certainly in love. A post-punk act with a serious dash of psych and noise vibes, Natural Velvet invites listeners down a fuzzy, swirling, spacey, rabit-hole freak out with its thick instrumentals and dark vocals. Check them out for yourself, and stream Natural Velvet's "Love is Love" below. - Olivia Sisinni 

Recluse Raccoon brings their soft psych sounds to The Camel 12/9

While the name Recluse Raccoon may have the sheen of simple children's programing, the Richmond-based three-piece is far from delivering clean, simplistic tunes. Billing themselves as a psychedellic-jazz-pop band, the group is certainly not too shy to serve up angular melodies, but Recluse Racoon's tracks never stray too far from structure--they often root themselves with a soft, driving tom-tom--and create tracks that edge toward experimental, but never feel loose. Maybe what's most striking about the band is the voices--gossamer vocals that border on ghostly create a distinct, ethereal, quality to their songs. With a sound that inspires introspection, the band is definitely our suggestion for your next grey, moody day. You can catch Recluse Raccoon playing The Camel 12/9 with Lightfields, The Wimps and Get in the Car, but in the meantime, stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

Buzz Alert: Horse Lords offer unpredictable avant-jazz on "Interventions"

 If you want an exercise in controlled chaos, why not look to Baltimore-based Horse Lords? The experimental group lays down frenetic tunes that jam just as much as they threaten to dance themselves off a cliff. Their latest release, Interventions, is a whirlwind of cascading poly-rhythms, textured tones, and devilishly, funky grooves. Horse Lords is currently on a European tour, so hold yourself over until their return by streaming them below.-Olivia Sisinni
