Lake Ruth's psychedelic pop transcends the decades, live at Elsewhere 10.18

Bore from a hodgepodge of influences—most notably '60s psychedelia, new wave, and vintage pop—New York’s Lake Ruth lay down a timeless bop on new single “Extended Leave.” The core backbone of the track, its analog, resonant saw lead, creates an industrial sound, one that runs counter to vocalist Allison Brice’s (The Eighteenth Day of May, The Silver Abduction) esoteric, tripped-happy lyricism. The cognitive dissonance of these two moving parts contributes to what makes “Extended Leave” such an engrossing listen, something akin to reading the work of Ram Dass in an abandoned East German factory, made all the better by the instrumental contributions of Hewson Chen (The New Lines) and percussionist Matt Schultz (Holy Fuck, Enon, SAVAK). Stream it below, and catch Lake Ruth at Elsewhere on October 18th, supporting Luna. -Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Sasha Maese

Amanda McCarthy enchants in new single "I Love Who You Are," plays Radio Bean tonight!

Amanda McCarthy had already dazzled New England with her full-length record, Road Trip, this past summer. However, all good artists build on their successes, and Amanda is one of them: her brand new single “I Love Who You Are” is out now. The single is splendid folk-pop that is suitable for all moods; its message is of love and perseverance. The snappy snare rhythm, brilliant acoustic melodies, and larger-than-life harmonious choruses are led by McCarthy’s enchanting vocals, driving the message home. The song grows with joy and uplifts spirits in typical McCarthy fashion. If it is the end of 2019 for McCarthy, the single is a rich cadence indeed. The New Hampshire resident will be performing at Radio Bean in Burlington, Vermont, this evening. We are streaming the brand new single for your enjoyment below. - Rene Cobar

Won Ton Death merges past and future in new record "Bean"

Williamstown, Massachusetts’ Won Ton Death is not your typical find: his music is an irresistible and rare merger between past and future. Jake Gagne (Won Ton Death) puts together exotic tracks that are glazed with melancholy and draw from ‘80s dream-pop elements. The songs flash electronic patterns only made possible by today’s sophisticated music-making programs. The production is crisp, but the mood is that of lo-fi intimacy and secluded artistry escaping the bedroom. Bordering on neo-psychedelia, Won Ton’s latest album Bean features exquisite tracks like "Jailbreak at Doubting Castle," a song that is a true carnival of varying drum patterns, swelling atmospheric sounds, and robot-like noises. The fast and furious punk-like ending of the track is just the type of surprises you can expect in Bean. Gagne flirts with dance music in “A Letter from Bean” and reveals his commitment to having a good time in the recording process. Won Ton Death is drawing appeal from all the places he can find it, and that is excellent. Listen to the entrancing track “Dung” streaming below. - Rene Cobar
