Animal Eyes are back with 'Where We Go'

Animals Eyes have made a glorious musical return with their first album since 2013's Ursus. With Where We Go, the band has reached one of their highest points musically as its songs pack a heavy emotional punch, supported by an elevated production. They've really come into their own with this one, which is why their album/vinyl release show at Mississippi Studios tomorrow is more than worth attending. 

Their live set is captivating, and with Fauna Shade and Sama Dams, there will be much to enjoy. Tickets are $5 and music starts at 9pm so show up on time! Below is the first track to come off Where We Go, titled "Mushroom Hunter."

Joy Again Opening for Day Wave at Boot & Saddle May 11

A Deli NYC premiere: Lake Ruth's 'The Only One Who Knows'

We can't exactly tell what Lake Ruth's singer Allison Brice sings about in the band's new single 'The Only One Who Knows' we are premiering below - the lyrics are rather unintelligible. Nonetheless, her vocals carry a quality of wisdom and sweet confidence that makes us picture a young mother - our Platonic mother? - giving us precious advice, with her beautiful, hopeful voice, about that relentless unraveling of mysteries called life. And even though the band's music, heavily influenced by the psychedelic '60s, puts this semi-imaginary lady in a historical context our real mother missed, the track's 'vintage' sound and dreamy atmosphere contribute in setting the stage for the most reassuring of dreams: re-living the days when we had somebody on our side who could answer all our questions: 'The Only One Who Knows'.

Don't miss Lake Ruth at NYC Popfest on May 22nd at Littlefield. LP Actual Entity' out on June 24th, 2016 on The Great Pop Supplement.

His latest Music for Solipsistic Tendencies meshes frenetic experimental folk with mellower moments of internal contemplation.

Shaking Through w/Hemming

For the premiere episode of the new season of Weathervane Music's Shaking Through (above), the documentary series revamped its usual format a bit, giving us a more in-depth look at their featured artist Hemming (a.k.a. Candice Martello), who has already had quite an interesting journey in the music industry.
