Water Slice play The Hi Hat on 2/1

With so many tremendous changes occurring in our country this past month, it’s nice to step back and appreciate the little things that make us happy. And this month, I’m pleased to say that Water Slice has been that ray of sunshine we’ve been looking for. Their newest single, “Our Hearts Don’t”, tells a story of true love, with artistic and righteous guitar strums soaking up the 70’s vibe. Emotional lyrics paint a nostalgic picture for those ever involved in heartbreak and what it means to lose yourself in order to find it again.

Keep an eye out for Water Slice, performing along side AAN at The Hi Hat on February 1st. - Kayla Hay

Turquoise Noise reignite modern hard rock with "Tabula Rosa", play The Hi Hat on 1/30

If commercial radio rock programmers actually did their research then bands like Turquoise Noise would be playing on heavy rotation. Sure, the quintet's imaginative guitar rock has a slightly off-center seam, sometimes verging into psychedelic territory, but its nifty, hook-driven quality would appeal to audiences who like their rock laced with pop licks and an alternative vibe. Their most recent single, "Tabula Rosa", is carried with a confident swagger that's both loud and proud.

Turquoise Noise are playing songs from their most recent debut full-length, as well as some new material, at The Hi Hat this coming Monday, January 30th. - Juan Rodríguez

Daise to play The Resident on 1/23

Indie rock band Daise craft intricate and faintly dreamy songs, countered with sunny harmonies and ringing percussion that are constantly in motion. The San Bernardino quartet sure know their way around a pop melody, and they put it to full effect on their recently released EP, Bewilder, which plays with the more amiable side of post-punk, with their noodling guitars and breezy rhythmic tones, and mixes it with some pan-ethnic flourishes. Fans of genre-bending groups like Yeasayer and Local Natives will find much to enjoy, as their catchy and thoughtful songwriting is as immediate as it is considered.

Daise will showcase their tuneful songs at The Resident on January 23th. - Juan Rodríguez

Halo Orbit release spacey new track "Trieste", debut album out 2/3

There's a profound sense of drift on "Trieste", Halo Orbit's enigmatic new track, a nine minute textural voyage that ultimately leaves more questions than answers once it ends. The ambient instrumental begins with steady restraint, slowly intensifying its backdrop of modular sounds with shuffled percussion patterns coming from all directions. Once it hits the six minute mark it finally builds, but not in the way you'd expect, briefly doing so until it gradually subsides into a gentle ripple, ultimately circling back to where it started. It's a daringly ambitious move for the veteran trio, who've in the past worked in bands like The Mars Volta, Buffalo Daugher and even the late David Bowie.

Halo Orbit, who see a home in Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo, are releasing their self-titled debut album on February 3rd via local imprint Alpha Pup. They'll be making their live debut appearance at Low End Theory on February 15 before hitting the road in support of it. - Juan Rodríguez
