Curling release LP 'Definitely Band' & embark on summer tour

The sophomore LP by Berkeley band Curling, entitled Definitely Band, is a feel-good frenzy of jangly shoegaze rock. This release — a mix of Beatlesque melodies that blow up and pop like bubble gum and fervently executed guitar riffs that make your heart jitter — is entirely their own. The second track on the album, “Flutter” (streaming below), genuinely brings about a thrilling frission, even on your tenth or eleventh spin of the track. Curling have outdone themselves this time. They will be playing at The Down & Out in L.A. on August 16, and then kicking off a summer tour the following day. - Lilly Milman

Rapper GOOGIE elevates the math with new Floating Polygons album

Googie hails from a long line of rappers with legendary voices: Method Man, GURU, Ludacris, Gift of Gab, etc. Dudes with voices like this--cut with that perfect amount of gravel but with effortless enunciation, and some glint of unfathomable swag--they never needed to say anything of substance for us to clamor after their music. Funnily enough, they still usually end up saying more than many of their less-blessed peers. Googie flexes styles, rhyme patterns, and topical ruminations like he’s teaching a master class. In the video for the first single “Molecules,” Googie breaks down some science for all the simpletons still squabbling over whether J. Cole or Drake dropped the hottest fire last year. -brokeMC
