The Southern Sounding Premieres Alberta's "Parlour"

Alberta a.k.a David Boone wrote each of the 11 tracks from his forthcoming album “MMMMM” on a salvation army piano, with a couch modded guitar, and recorded in a garage built studio. The result: an album that is relentless in its exploration of both color and attitude. Four weeks after “MMMMM” was done, he sold all of his things, outfitted an old work van worthy enough to catch some rest in, and took off. Now, as he tours the east coast, Alberta is preparing for his album’s launch date on October 5th.

Our friends at The Southern Sounding got a taste of Alberta’s sound and did us the honor of premiering Alberta’s latest track “Parlour” from the “MMMMM” album. About “Parlour” The Southern Sounding writer, Joshua Pickard says, “Boone wraps himself up within a series of twirling organ lines, clanging guitar rhythms and sparse percussive echoes. Its bluesy atmosphere is supported by a pitch black humor and wit that infuses every word and description.”

Girl Underground Music Premieres Broken Baby's "Pass The Acetone"

Introducing: Broken Baby, our latest rock obsession! Dripping with post-punk grunge and boomy, low-fi sounds, Broken Baby’s edginess is lethal. Their sound is caught somewhere between The Pretenders, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Jesus Lizard, and with melodies reminiscent of Eurythmics, Broken Baby is a band for punching the air and driving a little too fast.

As we count down the days until Broken Baby’s self-titled album releases on September 21st, Girl Underground Music shared their anticipation for the album as they premiere Broken Baby’s latest and greatest music video “Pass the Acetone.”

About the track , Girl Underground Music writes, “‘Pass the Acetone’ is a melodic punch to the ears ready for continuous replays. Bollinger’s bright vocals hold an amplitude of strength and is delivered with control throughout the track.”

Magnet Magazine Premieres The Eyebrows "Avocado" Music Video

Yesterday, Magnet Magazine posted an exclusive first look at The Eyebrows single “Avocado.” The twisted trio are set to self-release their 10-track debut album Volume on August 31.

Magnet Magazine commented on the music video, “In music, as in life, being quirky tends to elicit very mixed reactions… But in the case of Charlotte, N.C., trio the Eyebrows, there’s no need to worry: Being quirky suits them well, because there’s a lot more going on in their music that just shits and giggles.” For more glorious details on The Eyebrows freaky new music video, check out Magnet Mag’s original post here.

Girl Underground Music Debuts Xuan Single

As Xuan releases her first single “We Were Just Talking” from her up-and-coming album Have Some Fun on November 16th, Girl Underground Music jumped on the opportunity to premiere and review the indie-pop track.

About the new single Girl Underground Music writer, Janette Ayub, says “Delightfully opening with innocent banter and magical synths, “We Were Just Talking” is the epitome of inner dialogue and wishful thinking when merely talking to a crush. Fluorescent tempo switches dance alongside Xuan’s joyous, yet sotto voce delivery, sweetly nestled between jangle-pop guitar chords. Primal drumming provide a simplistic approach, allowing a centered focus on Xuan’s story. Adding a touch of college rock, the track is an adolescent ode smothered in pop.”

Ben Millburn premieres "Call Me King" at Popdust

Popdust premieres the latest single off Ben Millburn’s upcoming album Sunglass Moustache. The track, “Call Me King,” is accompanied by a music video, as will every track from the LP. Popdust says “Call Me King” has “a grunge-lite-phantasmagoric feel to the tune, akin to ‘Strawberry Fields Forever.’ Millburn’s voice exudes sonic nonchalance with tantalizing reedy wisps of scrumptious condescension.” The music video for the track features a hazy-looking Millburn sitting in his throne with changing attire.

The Austin-based Millburn will release his psychedelic rock LP Sunglass Moustache on Sept. 14. Until then, keep listening to “Call Me King” via Popdust!

Video Premiere: Romeo Dance Cheetah – “The Air Guitar Song”

Romeo Dance Cheetah just premiered his new video for “The Air Guitar Song.” Be one of the first to see it!

The Fire Note says “At some point, we have all done it. A sweet rhythmic head toss, a powerful pelvic thrust, a double handed slide complete with a power chord strum in perfect synchronization. That is right – the AIR GUITAR!”

“What. A. Name. Not only is Romeo Dance Cheetah a US National Champion of air guitar, but he’s also a legit musician. This October, he releases his album, Magnificent Man. But it’s one thing to say he’s magnificent and another to show you just how magnificent. Today, we’ve got a video for his new song, “The Air Guitar Song”. This video, an ode to his craft, is a veritable Who’s Who of the air guitar world. Oulu, Finland hosts the World Air Guitar Competition on August 24th and this video will show there. So yeah, you can watch this and possibly see some competitors and a whole lot of crotch thrusting in the process”, boasts Earbuddy.

Village Voice Premiered It Was Romance's "Philadelphia," the First Single Off Their Upcoming S/T Album

Since arriving in New York, Moore has solidified herself wholly in the writerly and comedic realm, yanking the reigns for Cosmopolitan.com’s sex and romance vertical and leading the widely-acclaimed comedy show Tinder Live. Now she’s starting to get a solid footing in a third frontier: shredding electric uke and waxing sentimental in her garage pop quartet It Was Romance. With that, she’d like to make one thing clear, especially regarding her stringed instrument of choice and its typical association. “I’m not playing adorably,” she says. “I’m playing with distortion.”
