Gloin - Wild New Single, Lee's Palace 02.08

Lo-Fi Psych group Gloin are getting ready to release a new EP this spring. The first single has now debuted and it’s a very adventurous garage/psych tune. Thumpin’ drums set the tone off the top of "Cha Cha". Followed along by a mix of chuggin’ reverby guitar and 80’s pop sounding synth. The vocals sound like she’s singing on the other side of the hall but the angry tone makes up for that. The track switches to a laid back, surfy vibe for a minute before getting’ really heavy. This track will keep you guessing but it’s cool all the way through. Gloin plays Lee’s Palace on February 8th with Kaleidoscope Horse, TEKE TEKE and World News. - Kris Gies

Video Premiere: Man’s Body “Do It Slow”

We are proud to be able to premiere the new Wes Tabayoyong directed video from Man’s Body for their new single “Do It Slow”. The track is taken from their 2018 LP, Put Your Family In It, and features contributions from Ryan Murphy of Poi Dog Pondering and Dante Pascuzzo of Rough Church in addition to the trio of Greg Franco, J. Niimi, and Marco Obaya.

The song deals with addiction in a graceful and intimate way touching on how it can deeply effective the addicted and those that care for them.


Weekend Warrior, January 25 - 27

A haunting, volatile, vulnerability seeps into your ears and under the skin in the music of Curtis Cooper. There’s a confessional, candle-lit closeness that encircles lyrically, as the room appears ready to rip itself apart. They create a keen, lingering, emotively-embedded sense of personal narrative – one which shifts the plot forward with a dramatic edge, wielding the sonic vehicle in a precise manner, while pushing the limits around every corner. These songs mesh an at-home, endearing familiarity with a pressure-regulating heaviness that rains down. Tonight at Everybody Hits, Cooper will be supported by garage-psych quartet Secret Nudist Friends, whom recently made their way home after a string of tour dates. Also, fellow Good How Are You Records labelmates Puppy Angst will be joining in the festivities, along with Atlanta glam-punks Material Girls. – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Right On" - Low Dose

Well, we now have the latest single from the forthcoming album, which they've named "Right On". Rosenberg shared, "It's about the frustrations of just trying to exist in the world without being bullied by men constantly."

Screamin' Rebel Angels celebrate "Heel Grinder" LP at Mercury on 1/25

The early roots of rock and roll are on full display in NYC's Screamin' Rebel Angels sophmore album “Heel Grinder.” Out via newly launched Hey-Lo Records, the full-length is set for release on 1/24. Fronted by dynamic, flame haired, tatood and glamorous Laura Palmer, the band evoke in each of the 13 tracks of the record the sprit of Littile Richard, Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline . Lead single “Oh! My Soul” (streaming below) in fact covers the legendary (Little) Richard Penniman, infusing it with it an additional level of barrelhouse, juke joint boogie-woogie. The accompanying video features red-hot Laura and her equally alluring “conjurers” tapping into the spirit world via tarot cards, magic potions, ouija boards and adorable Chihuahau puppies! Deeper tracks touch on elements of rockabilly (“Hands Off,” “Iris”), early Sun Sessions era Elvis (“I Believe”) and a blusey stroll, torch song raveup (“Something on your Mind”). The band celebrate with a record release show at The Mercury Lounge on Friday, 1/25. - Dave Cromwell
