New Track: "Smoke & Drive Around" - Brandon Can't Dance

Smooth-talking, electro-dance vibes emit from “Smoke & Drive Around,” the new single from Brandon Can’t Dance. The song is featured on his forthcoming album Graveyard of Good Times, slated for release on January 13 via Lucky Number. The accompanying video, which premiered via Noisey, keeps things simple as the slinky weekend beats takeover, erasing one’s weekly stressors. Brandon Can’t Dance will be performing this evening at The Overlook Hotel, alongside QQQ, Hallowed Bells, Repelican, Tuff Turf, 185668232, and Anklepants.

New Shelf Life LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Scott Leitch, a.k.a. Shelf Life, has released a new full-length album Spirit Bear. The collection of songs captures a pared-down, earnest vibe. However, while anchored in acoustic simplicity, the album ventures in different directions, establishing strong, melodic,  pop-rock grooves that open up in an illuminating fashion; conversely, a shadier grunge element also becomes visible. It isolates, stripping down the exterior world, hitting the personal core, and then jutting out of the darkness.

New Track: "Weathersby" - Strange Parts

Musical compatriots Attia Taylor and Corey Duncan (Oh Pears!) combine forces as Strange Parts. Weathersby, the second single off their forthcoming album, sits in a cloudy limbo state, as forward-shifting drums, ringing guitar and stabilizing synth cushion Taylor’s drifting, peaceful vocals. The duo opens for Adia Victoria on Monday, October 17 at Johnny Brenda’s.
