Below is a new Space Jams Sessions with Mumblr. The band put out an impressive seventeen-track LP entitled Full Of Snakes this past September via Fleeting Youth Records. Here's a stripped-down performance of their song, "Masturbation." They'll be playing next in Philly on Saturday, December 27 at Yarga's Basement for Day 1 of Kat Kat Phest.

Tomboy is a NYC duo that offers a rather personal and stripped down take on the industrial-pop genre, even though the term "pop" is a little stretched here, since the band's material, to date, never really unleashes pop music's signature "big chorus," preferring instead to keep the melodic tension chained. Their approach is quite minimalistic and measured, with rarely more than two parts overlapping with each other, which opens up a lot of space for Sarah Aument's strong and somewhat Bjorkesque vocals.  "Roll Out," (streaming, video here) is the first single/video from their self-titled EP, released earlier in April, and moves from a dark, edgy industrial-dance verse towards a more open and traditional chorus. "Moths," on the other end, is a moody midtempo built on on a web of percussive samples and sudden synth slashes. Kudos to director Maria Burns fur the uber stylish, just released video, streaming below.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

There’s a natural strength that emerges unfiltered in earnest music. That honesty engages in a fundamental way that can’t be discarded or thrown to the side. Scranton transplant, David Tomaine, a.k.a. Cave People’s latest EP Older, which was engineered by Matt Schimelfenig of Three Man Cannon/Miner Street Recordings and released via Stereophonodon Records, has that small town but universal sound we all crave sometimes. You can stream the record in its entirety below.

mtvghosts recently released their debut LP, Tri-Pop. The play what they are calling "dreampunk" but at one time may have been lo-fi. Regardless, the album is fantastic and a great follow-up to their 2013 EP, Dystopio.

You can catch mtvghosts with Yoko and The Oh No's, The Boxers, and 521Briar Guys at Martyrs' tomorrow, 12/19, at 6pm.

Shortly after playing their last show of the year back in Nashville at Mercy Lounge this past Saturday, The Kopecky Family Band announced a name change to a more succinct "Kopecky." We read that as a step of preparation for 2015, a year that is going to see some heavy action for the band, with a sophomore album scheduled for a spring release and no doubt the same level of breakneck touring that the Kopeckys are known for. We got to hear some of the new material at their show, along with their classics and some fantastic openers (Apollo Wild and Austin Manuel.) The night also drove home the sense of community that pervades big-small town of Nashville as the crowd came together for their neighbors. Read on about the show HERE. -Terra James-Jura
