Snakeskin find balance on "Hangnail," play Mercury Lounge 5.13

At the core of Hangnail, the debut EP by New York multi instrumentalist Shanna Polley (known professionally as Snakeskin) is a feeling of modulation; the way Polley shifts between major and minor keys, how the vocals change from soft-spoken mumble to an explosive falsetto, and how the effort’s instrumentation goes from clean to discordant, all contribute to a feeling of unease throughout the release's six tracks. In doing so, Snakeskin plays to its strengths in a dynamic quality, balancing tender lyrical attributes against crunchy, lofi production, creating a release that’s both hard and soft, tender and heavy. It’s a defiantly iconic effort that demonstrates Polley’s ability to find balance in the storm. Stream it below, and catch them live at Mercury Lounge on May 13th, performing alongside Hypoluxo and Nanami Ozone. -Connor Beckett McInerney

The Mystery Lights release new video for "Too Much Tension," new album out 05.10

Unpretentious and ridiculously tight, The Mystery Lights continue to cruise along as one of rock’n'roll's most noteworthy acts. The piercing riffs of their latest single “Too Much Tension” are cut from the same cloth as acid rock bands of the ‘60s like Count Five. The staunch drum beat that propels the song forward hypnotizes with flair and helps drive home the track’s poised vocals. The confidence that exudes from the NYC quintet is true to the bravado of the golden era of rock'n'roll and contributes to the group's allure. The track's accompanying lo-fi-styled video pays homage to their urban roots and garage rock sound. Their new album Too Much Tension! will be released on May 10. We got the music video for you below. - Rene Cobar
