Sedge - New Alt-Grunge EP "Translation in Lost", Release Party 07.26

Brand new music from Toronto’s alt-grunge band Sedge. “Translation in Lost” EP will be released Friday July 26. The opening track “Call of the Void” kicks off with a classic grunge crunchy guitar tone. It’s a quick and rowdy tune that possesses catchy melodies along with the dirty rock sound. Sedge is throwing a “Translation in Lost” release party at Junction City Music Hall on Friday July 26th along with Baby Labour, TV Dinner and Cable Coated Nephew. – Kris Gies

Them Fantasies serve a rich blend of styles in debut record "Caffeine Queen"

Spiffed up and ready to take on the world are Boston's Them Fantasies, a well-polished group with a brand spanking new debut record. The band's Caffeine Queen is an alt-rock treat with an unquestionable aroma of jazz and hints of pop. "Hook-Up Culture" amps up the groove factor with a slithery-entrancing bassline while "Melatonin" lets the guitar solos and anthemic choruses fly for a double shot of alt-rock goodness. In "Acid Anna," the band shines as the jazz influences take over and provide comforting escapism from reality. From the speedy "Plastic Heart" to the reggae-soaked "Them Fantasies," it all comes together sumptuously. Having returned from an East Coast tour, Them Fantasies are sure to let the album's steam propel them to the next set of gigs. Enjoy our favorite track from the new record "Acid Anna" below. - Rene Cobar

Tommy Nelson "Past Life"

Multi-Instrumentalist Tommy Nelson releases a new single earlier this month called “Past Life”. He released series of singles in 2018 that where all interesting DIY Psych gems, but this is his first released track with Lillian Grace on vocals.

Grace brings a new, sultry elements to Nelson hazy downtempo rock, and truly makes this single pop. We hope there is much more to come from both Nelson and Grace.
