New Track: "John Wilkes Booth" - TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

It's been over three years since we've had a new album from TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb. Well, this evening at Johnny Brenda's, you'll have a chance to cop his new EP Dancing Out the Door at the band's vinyl release celebration with Lightninging and Haunted Homes. The album officially drops on October 13 via Good Behavior Records, but you can take a listen to its raucous, piano-boogie lead single, "John Wilkes Booth," which is also featured on the label's Hurricane Relief compilation. All proceeds will be going to the victims of Harvey and Irma.

New Track: "Hofner" - Night Bloom

J. Termini (a.k.a. Telequanta) and Patrick Schlitzer join creative forces as Night Bloom. Bright keys and a funky, lo-fi undercurrent lay the foundation to their new single “Hofner.” Entranced by the groove, a melodic cosmic tale of yearning emerges. BTW: I think that we’ve made up our mind.

New Lonely Ghost & Soft Idiot Split EP Available for Streaming & Download

Lonely Ghost and Soft Idiot have paired up to released the aptly titled split EP Lonely/Idiot. “Sleep Well” by Lonely Ghost, a.k.a. Kenny Forrester, melodically rattles in a shoegazing absorption. Shifting into a more tranquil hypnotic atmosphere, “We Felt Safe” drifts in subtle emotives. “Eclipse Song” and “Walk,” the contributions from Justin Roth, a.k.a. Soft Idiot, swim in a jangly folk setting (with “Walk” venturing into a psych-rock/noise realm), allowing the lyrical proximity to remain in focus. Soft Idiot is slated to appear on a bill with Mavis The Dog and Cabbage at Ortleib's on Wednesday, September 27.

Debut Mary Veils LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

As the summer fades into mere memory, The Mary Veils, the lo-fi, psych vehicle of Brian Von Uff, rears its gnarly head with Slacker Paint. Low-and-slow, smoke-saturated songs retain their flavor, accented by raw, surf tones. Through the haze of fuzz-laced guitar riffs, the vocals leak through, as a seemingly lackadaisical, calming presence. In the midst of those fire-under-ones-feet grooves and swells, a roaring, untamed blaze of instrumentation waits to engulf at any moment, which makes for a surprisingly most excellent debut.
