TANGIENTS unveil fierce, pummeling new single "Hazel," play at The Echo on 3/19

TANGIENTS unleash their primal fury on "Hazel." The duo of Chelsea Ray and Be Hussey are not for slow-builds—their confrontational post-punk immediately shoots off with a tribal roar over an enrapturing guitar lead. Led by Ray's commanding vocal acrobatics, "Hazel" emanates a visceral energy that is shrouded in mystery and seduction. They push forth a rich, full sound that is far greater than their two-piece setup.

The duo is playing at The Echo on March 19 alongside TEEN and Methyl Ethel. Check out "Hazel" below. Juan Rodríguez

   

Debut Knifeplay LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Pearlty is the debut full-length album from the Tj Strohmer-led outfit Knifeplay. A delicate dusting of shoegazing atmosphere melds with breezy introspection. Hovering weightless over the top of one’s thoughts and then crashing climatically down on points of emphasis, there’s a subdued, somber, tranquilizing affect. It hits you in what seems like slow gradual motion, but the blow leaves a mark. (Photo by Doug Dulgarian)

   

Distant Mountains release new album Stationed Lockstep

Distant Mountains released their latest album Stationed Lockstep on March 1the first full-length album the band self-engineered and self-produced (Light Rail Studios, San Francisco). Well they’ve done a fine job. The album as a whole is a breathing piece; songs fade and blend into each other with seamless mixing and a refreshing blend of experimental, alternative rock that might please fans of Wilco and My Morning Jacket. Track “Look Back” is an opening song with the epic quality of early Arcade Fire and has some clever-funny lyrical and vocal moments. Enjoy that deep warble for a second there. Our recommendation is to hold out for Side 2: tracks “Expensive Taste,” “Solstice,” and “Junipero” blend together with a seamless spacey quality. Distant Mountains is Paul McCorkle, Scott Lord, and Ben Manning. Stay tuned into their sites for upcoming shows. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
