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 Spring Onion Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

We thought that this release might be apropos for today. And for those who are stressfully working to make the dreaded deadline, I Did My Taxes For Free Online, the new record from Spring Onion, a.k.a. Catherine Dwyer (of Remember Sports), may or may not be what you need, while you wait for the damn IRS site to work properly. Direct, unveiled narratives establish an endearing level of trust, as what initially appears to be bare instrumentation blooms, revealing its melodic beauty. The album is out now via Sleeper Records, and All Night Diner will be hosting Spring Onion’s record release celebration this Saturday, April 21, with Snake Boy Gang, 2nd Grade, and Mortal Combat. 

   

New Track: "Truster" - Bodyguard

Power Animal's Megan Gouda and Matt Hampson have a new project that they are calling Bodyguard, a name that "hopes to evoke a sense of support, alliance and emotional safety." Their new single, "Truster," opens in a serene yet suspenseful, synth-laced, night air. The ironed-out brightness of its vocals juxtaposes and brings attention to the track's hypnotic, introspective lyrics. Keep a lookout for the duo's forthcoming debut EP Allow Yourself In The Frame

   

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.
