Forma releases LP 'Physicalist' + performs at The Good Room on 11.02

Brooklyn-based, instrumental electro trio Forma released their third full-length album Physicalist on September 23rd, and are now ready to bring their new, hypnotic sound to the stage. The album contains astonishing soundscapes, mostly carved from synchronized arpeggiators and atmospheric pad sounds.The title track (streaming below) id founded on a loose rhythmic foundation created by drum machines and swelling arpeggiated synths. But it is the organic breath of flute that carries the piece and creates an expansive sonic dimension. Experience Forma live at The Good Room on November 2nd (the show was moved from Market Hotel). - Ashley Muniz


Cheap Dinosaurs Record Release Show at Boot & Saddle Oct. 18

Today, the psych/prog crew of Cheap Dinosaurs unveiled their new album, High Strangeness, and tonight, the quartet creeps into South Philly's Boot & Saddle. The band latest release navigates through a fantastical deep-forest, video-game resonating labyrinth. The pulsating beats ascribed to the combination of heavy yet precise backend-led trails and mysterious synths drive the quest toward its ultimate destination. The optimistic comfort of familiar terrain is temporarily shaken as ominous quaking tones enclose, while one proceeds deeper into the dimly lit terrain. They’ll bridge the gap between the pronounced, punk stomping of Tiny Vices and the intricately explosive, primal, post-hardcore surges of Georgia’s Cinemechanica, whom released a new self-titled album late last month. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Fritz Cook "Sings" doo-wop music to trip to, plays Sunnyvale on 10.22

Uber obscure NYC artist Fritz Cook croons cool, doo-woop-flavored acid dreams that will lull his listeners down the blithe headspace of Alice's rabbit hole. The Brooklyn-based artist, aka Michael Busse, has a set of pipes so buttery that you could just melt into them, and they're paired with instrumentals that feel both familiar and strange--maybe like a '45 that's been left out in the sun too long. Check out b-side "Tundra Rye" off of the newly released Sings streaming below. You can see Fritz live at Sunnyvale this Saturday October 22, supporting Miniature Tigers. - Olivia Sisinni


The Milestones to open for Seratones at DC9, 10/20

Baltimore's premier dance rock outfit The Milestones and one of the South's hottest rock bands, Seratones, are teaming up for what's sure to be a stellar night at DC9 this Thursday, 10/20. If you're familiar, Seratones are a fourpiece coming all the way up from Shreveport, LA, to bring their R&B-infused soulful rock to the nation's capital. Frontlady A.J. Haynes has pipes for crooning and belting out verses that surely reach the heavens. Kicking the night off for Seratones are some of Baltimore's favorite sons, The Milestones. They've been on a tear, playing a ton of shows since the start of the summer and spreading their standout indie-dance vibe for all to enjoy. Show at 8:30, $15 at door. -Jonathan Goodwin
