Oceans of the Moon is ready to hypnotize you, sold out show at Sinclair 10.16

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, Oceans of the Moon is the kind of group that demands your full attention. Take the band’s music video for its single “Blowing My Mind” as a solid example of its experimental music’s ability to entrance. The footage flashes various objects set to a commercial all-white background as the synths and guitars simmer. The vocals, seemingly on a loop, melt into the mind as the carousel of objects lures you deeper into the video, before you know it, you are hitting that “Replay” button. It is the combination of ominous sounds, fierce vocals, and a deceptively groovy beat that keeps the listener swirling in the band’s electronic vortex. The group’s self-titled debut record is out now, with a performance set for the Sinclair on October 16th. We are streaming the music video for “Blowing My Mind” in celebration. - Rene Cobar

New Track: "Largemarj" - Pulgas

Pulgas, the duo of Simon Martinez and Zane Shields, have announced their new effort, titled Or Best Offer, which releases on September 13 via Astro Nautico. Back in 2017, the group shared its self-titled debut on Boiled Records, a world of lo-fi sorcery, filled with dastardly grooves that provided the footing for a stunningly agile and colorful, melodic accompaniment with vocals that were lolled out - smooth and saccharine. Martinez and Shields recently shared the first single from their forthcoming EP. “Largemarj” is a soulful track that swings in a soft shuffle, an impassioned sense of decadence with a touch of melancholy. - Josh Kelly





Mima Good releases smoky track "Holly Golightly"

Fervent readers and movie buffs know Holly Golightly, the country-turned-cafe-society girl from Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Golightly (played by the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn) has an independent air, an entrancing one; she's a character who literary analysts have studied as, among other things, a feminist icon. Now Brooklyn avant-blues-indie artist Mima Good has released a single named after Golightly, using clips from Breakfast at Tiffany's to create a slowed-down groove which accompanies her musings on her own femininity. In her press release for "Holly Golightly", Raechel Rosen -- the brains behind Mima Good -- says: "To me, [Golightly] is a charming metaphor for surviving under capitalist patriarchy and making it look good as hell." And while toxic masculinity and misogyny still exist in New York and beyond, artists like Mima will take influence from icons like Golightly and keep surviving, too. Take a listen to the single. below. - Will Sisskind

Humeysha releases sandy new single "Nusrat on the Beach"

Humeysha -- the project of musician and songwriter Zain Alam -- will release new EP Nusrat on the Beach on August 2nd; the record's name takes inspiration from a dream of Alam's, in which he saw legendary Pakistani vocalist and musician Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on the beach. You can hear some of the passion and devotion from Nusrat's music in the EP's title track, mixed with the chilled out indie sounds from Alam which convey the surf and sand. The whole song acts as an aural gateway to Alam's dream; you'll dream it yourself. Take a listen to "Nusrat on the Beach" below. - Will Sisskind
