Sweet Baby Jesus get deeply mystical on "Lyres of Ur," play The Glove 3.29

New York’s Sweet Baby Jesus makes the type of raucous, freaky garage rock you’d expect from their namesake - sloppy guitars shred against screaming revelations at a breakbeat pace, infected with a distinctly Americana vocal quality that feels equal parts Bob Dylan and Ian Mackaye. Their latest effort, Lyre of Ur, has a clear spiritual inspiration, described as “a lilting melody, draped in the burden of a deep gut feeling and weighted by a soul of stone.” I’m unsure as to the source material Sweet Baby Jesus frontman Pooty (no surname given) drew from in writing Lyre, but I admire its soulful quality and joyous mysticism - it promises a divine stage presence when SBJ takes to The Glove on March 29th, supporting Palberta and SSS. Until then, stream Lyre of Ur below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Weekend Warrior, February 1 - 3

In stark contrast to the frigid force that currently occupies the outdoors, the garage-surf quartet of Blushed creates an inviting, somewhat humid, melodic atmosphere – one that sinks into your skin like the breeze off the water as the temperature rises. There’s a tranquilizing yet combustible nature, reminding you that the mesmerizing glow of the candlelight is capable of causing serious damage at any moment. Tonight at the Music Ward, they’ll be joined by the garage-psych torrent of Line Leader. Welding emotively-laced lyrics and also exhibiting a carefree side, Canine 10 is enthusiastically engaging, while the tumultuous, jangly-emotive, surf-rock haze of Asbury Park trio Dentist completes this lineup.

Castlebeat's “VHS” is a summery, nostalgic trip, plays Elsewhere 2.3

Josh Hwang started recording the songs that would become his second LP while living in Irvine, California, adding the final touches once he had finished relocating to New York. While a small factotum in the album’s liner notes, it helps to explain the nostalgia-laden, dreamy elements that characterize VHS, the most recent record Hwang has released under the CASTLEBEAT moniker. The album’s surfy, occasionally psychedelic garage rock is filtered through lofi production stylings and dream pop filters, creating a palpable distance that endows VHS with a sense of pleasant, albeit faded, memory. It’s a release that encapsulates the passage of time succinctly, with Hwang’s present tense lyricism contextualized by the lush, shoegazy instrumentation that surrounds it, a bittersweet LP for anyone who has sought a new start in a place far from home.

Castlebeat will play Elsewhere on February 3rd, alongside Hala and Been Stellar. Stream VHS below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt
