New Music Video: "Let Me Get There" (Feat. Kurt Vile) - Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions

Twinkling stars and the calming current of the ocean seen through a noir filter provide the backdrop in the video for “Let Me Get There,” directed by Hope Sandoval herself. Endearingly odd, floating statues mouth the lyrics as the intimate narrative between Sandoval and Kurt Vile unfolds. The song is featured on Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions forthcoming album, Until the Hunter, scheduled for release on November 4 via Tendril Tales.

New Track: "What It Seems" - Dylan Jane

On her latest EP, Dylan Jane surrounds herself with a cavalcade of local folk stalwarts. Produced by Brian Dale Allen Strouse (The Lawsuits), Deceiving Yourself and Everyone Else will be released on October 7. Featuring Friendship’s Peter Gill on pedal steel as well as Chelsea Mitchell (Dirty Dollhouse) on backing vocals, the album's lead single, “What It Seems,” enlists a rolling, folk feel as bass, piano and percussion set the wheels in motion. Steadying the collage of twisting semi-dreamy imagery, the backing vocals offer a glimmer of brightness amid the tug and pull of contemplation. Dylan Jane will be celebrating the record’s release this Thursday, October 6 at Bourbon & Branch, which will also include Friendship, Solar and Chelsea Mitchell.

New Tombo Crush LP Available for Streaming & Download

Plumbing the darkness and the grain of DIY recording sonics, Tombo Crush manage to fuse their guitar work and aching vocals into surprisingly revealing songs. There is something very alluring about the project's latest full-length album, Ant Farm, that begs for further listening, as well as a quirkiness that winks for you to not take it all so seriously. Tombo Crush are in their own vein, and are perfectly content there.

A Sheerly Prime Debut

The debut EP from dark soul duo Sheers is a beautifully ideal soundtrack for lamenting creativity and moments of vivid self reflection.

We premiered the first track from Lily Breshears and Grant Pierce, the brains behind the project, back in early August. "Depth" presented orchestral r&b, jazz and hip hop elements as a tease into the EP's other three tracks, reaffirming Breshears' actual depth as an emotional intellect, classically trained musician and the project's driving force.

Piano riffs and paced drumming start out the EP on "In Case," as Breshears' deep croon swiftly establishes itself as a partaking instrument. At times her voice barrels with full-toned body and when accompanied by Pierce's cymbal play and gradual beat buildup (also heard on closing track "Kristoffer"), create heavy texture with only few tools.

Sheers will be joining Skin Lies as supporting acts for Seattle musician Benoît Pioulard's album release show this Tuesday at Holocene. Until then, get acquainted with Sheers below.

Allison Crutchfield and the Fizz Step Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits Oct. 1

Allison Crutchfield’s vast musical output has been felt as a part of (the recently reunited) P.S. Eliot and the fierce, gritty, enthusiastic Swearin’ as well as Waxahatchee. Tonight, Crutchfield and her backing band the Fizz step up to the plate at Everybody Hits. Slated to release a yet-to-be-named album - courtesy of Merge Records early next year, she can sit back, allowing the lyrical honesty take the lead among a pensive percussive backdrop or conversely rear back as a heavier fast-paced tenacity rushes forward. Crutchfield and her bandmates will also be joined by the combustible psych-grunge merging of The Spirit of the Beehive and the melodic snarl of pop-punk trio Eight to get the festivities rolling. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
