Bad Waitress - Release Party 04.21 at The 'Shoe with Nightseeker!

Formerly known as the Nude Dogs; Bad Waitress are set to release a new EP this Saturday. They describe their tunes as “heavy licks, intense energy and strong satire.” Their first single “Acid Brain” is filthy and smells like an ash tray….and I mean that in a good way. The video of this two minute ripper is about as chaotic as the song itself. Be at the Horseshoe Tavern on Saturday April 21 for Bad Waitress’ Release Party along with Beuller and the legendary Nightseeker featuring Dean Murdoch from FUBAR! – Kris Gies

   

Debut Exmaid LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Exmaid, which unites Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Full Of Fancy, Black Wine, Noun) with the power trio of Psychic Teens, recently dropped their debut LP, Fair Sex, via SRA/Don Giovanni Records. Taylor leads the way, navigating through narration with a deadpan sincerity. Meanwhile, the passageway is muddied with a menacing, primal grunginess, which looms like an ominous cloud or lingering shadow figure. There’s a brooding, ripping backdrop clearing a course for the clairvoyant vocals. A window of accessibility is opened, and brutal honesty is the result. You can catch Exmaid's record release show this Saturday, April 21 at Long In The Tooth, where they'll be supported by Dialer.

   

Two Suns - First Track "Forlorn Love" on Fishbum Records Mixtape!

Two Suns are an aggressive psych band from Toronto. Earlier this year they had their first recorded track appear on a mixtape for Fishbum Records which features many of Toronto’s great garage/pysch bands. “Forlorn Love” starts with a real sludge metal intro before ripping into an all out punk assault. The music is in your face and hectic while the overly-reverbed vocals float along occasionally. It’s an absolute headbanger. Two Suns play the Baby G on Saturday April 21st with Crazy Bones and Deaf. – Kris Gies

   

Heavy psych-rockers Sun Voyager release debut album, play Baby’s All Right on 04.20

Imagine dipping Black Sabbath into a steaming pot of psychedelia and you’re pretty close to the sound of Sun Voyager. On 2015’s Lazy Daze – EP the band made use of heavy metal style riffs to wade through thick servings of reverb and distortion to occasionally shoegazey effect. Their debut full-length, Seismic Vibes, looks ready to amp up the psychedelics and deliver an even denser wash of sound and near droning rhythms. With a timely 4-20 release, the trio seems to have no problem with the psych-rock association. You can celebrate with the band when Sun Voyager plays a release show that night at Baby’s All Right, supported by Stuyedeyed. – Cameron Carr

   

New Track: "Red State" - Dominic Angelella

"Red State" is the first single off Dominic Angelella's forthcoming solo EP Road Movie. It was born from his ventures on the road, where he experienced a frightening encounter with police in Russia. "This song was written later in the year after a tour through the American Southeast, in attempts to connect the red states of my country with the strange, wildly beautiful place that I visited earlier in the year," Angelella shared with Brooklyn VeganRoad Movie is due out on May 4 via Philly's own Lame-O Records.
