More Fatter’s delightful “Yeah You” video hits waves

Last week funky pop boys More Fatter released the video for their single “Yeah You” and it is a fun and spunky time. Filmed at San Francisco’s Dolores Park, the video features the cuatro doing synchronized, shoeless dance moves, some poppin’ lady dancers and loads of onlookers and smilers. Props to the kiddo who slides down the slide right into the band. Like most of their tracks, “Yeah You” has got some great trombone highlights and it’s fun to see those things in action. Check out More Fatter’s video and let yourself feel the young energy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

The Burning Sensations ignite in debut self-titled record

Igniting with no apologies, the Connecticut collective known as The Burning Sensations debut with a self-titled album that does not take itself all that seriously, and that is its appeal. The opening track “Wanting More” has a bite to it, why with its sharp-lingering guitar chords, slithery bassline, and playful vocal delivery, it is wide open to listener interpretation: funky, alternative, retro—take your pick. Tracks like “Murky Water” have a tinge of that same theatricality and over-the-top vocal delivery that shot Modest Mouse to fame at the start of the new millennium. “Sensitive Guys” is as hilarious as it is tragic, and “Do Me” is upbeat and tough with its rock edge. Overall the album introduces the band with clarity because the group’s sound is well-established, and that is a great selling point. Listen to the cool and groovy guitar in “Sweat Wiper” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

Goose debuts year-end single "Wysteria Lane"

Goose, the band from Norwalk, Connecticut, surprised with a year-end single so fun it had to save it for last. The year-closing single “Wysteria Lane” is funky with its smooth ‘70s guitar riffs, hot bassline, and reverberating vocals that evoke a festive feel. Known for its excellent live performances, Goose is a group that injects that communal feel into each piece, and this new single is no different: close your eyes, turn up the volume and feel the vibe so lively. The final seconds of the track are exquisite; the overall composition is primed for a solid live showing to come. Stream the new track below to kick off your weekend right. - Rene Cobar
