Internet electro star Ryn Weaver plays Baby's All Right tonight (10.14)

NYC/LA electronic muse Ryn Weaver pretty much lived through what most emerging musicians dream about each time they post a song on Soundcloud: instant fame! We are often suprprised when a song by a new act gets 10k plays - her single OctaHate got over TWO MILLION! (Check out the video below). The next challange for artists lucky enough to have earned some recognition through the web is always to follow up with a live show that can support a longer career in music. Ryn Weaver will be playing Baby's All Right tonight (10.14); it will be a good opportunity to see where she's at in that department.


Sego Announces New EP, "Wicked Youth"

Sego’s psychedelic trip through time warps and intoxicating rhythms creates their first EP, Wicked Youth, which is set to be released October 27th. Listening to the 5-track playlist, I couldn’t help but lose my mind in their blend of trippy guitar riffs, exploratory melodies and engaging lyrics. Band members Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll do a mesmerizing job at giving their listeners a sense of nirvana while listening to the album. A relaxing journey through the mind of Sego can take us on timeless adventures to and from the digitized world. Combining psychedelic rock, shoegazing and soft dubstep into one EP, Sego masters the art of perfection. - Kayla Hay


Forebear play the Satellite on 10.8

Forebear, originally Wise Cub, formed in 2011, though their raw talent would suggest they've been playing together far longer. Scott Goldbaum's guitar work is transient and breathtaking. He plays with experience reminiscent of a long-gone classical era with influences of Spanish guitar juxtaposed with modern indie rock vocals. Goldbaum's brilliant stylings aside, the band is not short of inspired instrumentalists. With Molly Rogers on viola, keys and vocals, Mike Musselman on drums and Nick Chamian on bass, the band meanders through various genres with the skill set of a seasoned band. Their new track, "North Korea & The Five Stages of Grief", showcases the effervescence and ease they have championed in playing together. Harmonies between Goldbaum and Rogers are ethereal and the track finishes memorably with a graceful viola solo by Rogers.



Willow Willow release sophomore album on 11.11

The ladies of Willow Willow are longtime friends who share an equal kinship for music from a very young age - they know each other since kindergarten - and those who followed the discography of LA sixties/seventies psych rockers Love will recognize where their band name comes from. Judging by the name of their sophomore effort, Listening to Music, they most probably venerate the activity with great rejoice. Their new single, "I Will Tire of You", is an understated, catchy number with a classic doo wop melody that emphasizes their dual harmonies. It shows they have a bookish knowledge of Brill Building pop considering how faithfully they recreate it, though it still retains the folk-based elements found on their debut. The self-released Listening to Music will come out on November 11th.
