Ian Chang redefines what it means to be a drummer. Embarking on a solo-project aside from his work with Son Lux and Landlady, Chang focuses on bridging the gap between man and machine. He uses his drum-kit to manipulate music samples in order to weave music more dense and sensuous than perhaps otherwise possible, relying on crystalline ...

Benjamin Lanz has played in several bands you might know, including the National and Beirut, but the solo debut of his new project LANZ is just as compelling as his other acts. "Karla’s Retreat," from his upcoming album Hoferlanz I, is a driving and forceful track, laden with melodic hooks from piano, guitar and an unexpected brass section, and the song is helped along by a powerful, yet tasteful rhythm section. The instrumental breaks are some of the most confident we’ve heard this year, but their impact is deepened by Lanz’s self-assured vocals, which also keep "Karla’s Retreat" structurally sound. All this is supported by a charming video depicting Lanz in a slightly ominous, cabin-y studio, and outdoor scenes of potentially creepy houses. It’s shot on film, which you might’ve guessed. "Karla’s Retreat" is defiantly indie, but perhaps the most captivating thing about this song in a sometimes uncertain genre is that LANZ’s feet are planted firmly on the ground. Hoferlanz I is out October 14th, and will also be released as a cassette for Cassette Store Day. –Geena Kloeppel

Their latest release, 2016’s "Bait is for Sissies" is unapologetic, innovative, fierce and hits in just all the right ways. Check out Kino ...

Boon’s brand of psych rock is multi-layered, glitchy, and nearly thick enough to wade through. Where other bands fall into pitfalls of ...

Inspired by his 12 years in NYC, Spirit Plate frontman Brian Russ found inspiration for the the passion project Youth Moose—the psych rock band’s sophomore album. Recorded in Russ’ home studio, the LP features tracks presented as a reflection of the New York experience, based on everything from street art to architecture. This record is about finding clarity in the chaos (a feeling any New Yorker can relate to) all while experimenting with new sounds and content. In the single “Daily News Headline” (streaming below) the group tackles themes of political and civil unrest, overlaying a triumphant mashup of gritty guitar arrangements and a lively horn section. The band recently also unveiled the video for second single ‘All Day Long.’ – Lilly Milman

Remember when it was 2013 and all your favorite bands, TY Segall, King Tuff, and Ariel Pink, couldn’t stop talking about Halloween? Demure For Sure’s latest single "It’s Magic" (from LP Tie-Dye Shadow) is a trip down memory lane for those who can relate. The NYC-based artist blends psychedelia, and art-rock ’80s rock together in a new song that is nothing short of spell-binding. If you aren’t entertained when Zach de Sorbo sings "Talisman’s and amulets/I wear them all the time," (following a xylophone solo), just stick around for the the voice morphing and witch laughs. Alice Cooper would be proud. – Allie Miller

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don’t miss them live!– Pearse Devlin
