New Satellite Hearts LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Satellite Hearts enlisted the services of The Lawsuits' Joe Bisirri to help produce their new LP Desire Forces The Flow. The trio finds an excellent balance of catchy bass-rolling glam-pop and heavy guitar-driven psych-rock. It can hit like a gentle wave or smash violently against the shore. The band has a twin-billing on August 2, playing the 2nd St. Festival during the day, followed by Bourbon & Branch that evening.


When Lightninging Comes at Ortlieb's July 22

The brooding, impending storm of sound known as Lightninging is one that gradually develops, marinating in subtle layers of psychedelic tones that service as warnings for when the rains are going to come. Tonight, that downpour occurs at Ortlieb’s, bringing with it forays of melodic guitar runs, while engulfing you in an excursion which naturally pushes further as the quintet digs down into a jammed-out sweet spot that hits a spot on the musical map which they desire. The experimental rock of local four-piece Purples combines harmonious vocals, groove-thumping backend, and guitar heat with cinematic scene-shaping sonic twists. The genre-spanning, NYC-residing Gladshot offers joyfully smooth, casual, bouncing tunes that give off a folky-funky, lyrically inquisitive vibe. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The tracks were engineered and mixed by Zachary Devereux Fairbrother (of Lantern). Cassingles will be available for purchase this Thursday, July 23 at Johnny Brenda's when the quartet opens for Myrrias. (Photo by Ryan Collerd)
