New Track: "Undertow" - DRGN King

With their new album Baltimore Crush due out on October 28 via Bar None Records, DRGN King just premiered the single “Undertow” over at Pancakes and Whiskey. The steady thudding basslines and casual vocals provide a calming atmosphere before shifting into higher gear, allowing the instruments and vocals to open up. The song finishes in a decidedly different place from where it started - much like the latest incarnation of the DRGN King project.

Ecstatic Vision Opening for Creepoid at Underground Arts Oct. 23

If the idea of heart-pounding, trance-inducing, raucous rock that temporarily encases listeners in an alternative sonic dimension is the remedy you’ve been looking for, Ecstatic Vision is serving it up at Underground Arts tonight. The band recently signed to Relapse Records, and has plans for releasing its debut early next year. With extended, heavy vibes filled with sweaty fuzzed guitars, relentless backend and scorcher-inspired vocals, be prepared to be sucked in. However, you’ll want to be at UA all night anyway with a lineup that includes the soothing cosmic navigation of neo-psych outfit Drone Ranger, whom are consistently changing speeds as they traverse farther out. Then, there’s Ruby The Hatchet, whose rough-edge 70’s hard rock sound, isn’t so much a throw back but rather a timeless tradition with its interlocked thick, rolling groove and guitar lines that take that step ahead, letting the flames emerge bigger, all while Jillian Taylor’s vocals provide a calming fervor. All this will set the stage for the earthy noise-rock of Creepoid that seeps into your pores and finds a home there. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Face" - Psychic Teens

We're excited to share a new track with you from Psychic Teens. It certainly has been a while since we've heard from the post-punk power trio, and "Face" doesn't disappoint with its combustible guitar licks and Larry Ragone's ominously macabre diction. The single is the A-side to the forthcoming 7" that the group will drop on November 7 via Reptilian Records. They'll also have a big release show that same evening at Boot & Saddle with legendary hardcore outfit F.O.D., a.k.a. Flag of Democracy, and Hound, who will also be celebrating their new album with SRA Records.

Shape Breaker Opening for OBN IIIs at Underground Arts Oct. 22

There’s very little information to be found online about Philly garage rock outfit Shape Breaker. Instead, they let their guitar-shredding speak for itself. In 2011, they released their debut album, no fun., which featured the opening track, “Brotherly Love,” a fast-paced jam made for sweaty moshing and brotherly shoves. Shape Breaker’s latest album, Eyes Wide, was released last year and well-received by the blogosphere so it’s no surprise that they’ll opening for crude (in the best way) Austin garage-punks OBN IIIs, who are elusive about what information they give out as well. Their Facebook “About” section reads, “Our page is about fuck-all if not for the band. Come see us live. How's that for a long drescription, facebook?” Local acts Ruby Buff and The Pretty Greens will be rounding out the bill. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Emily DiCicco
