Atlas Engine premieres spacey new single

Fitting to its name “New Constellation” is a floaty, spacious new track by Atlas Engine—it’s also a notable step away from the more energized and guitar heavy work that Nick LaFalce has previously released under this name. Synthesizers lead the way with an echoing drum beat providing the pulse of the track. The voice and guitars of LaFalce remain, but heavier in reverb with the vocals tending toward falsetto and the guitar leaning toward subtle and spacious melodies. The bright echo of guitar picking is perhaps the only contrast to the dreamy, nighttime mood Atlas Engine invokes here. Listen to “New Constellation” below. – Cameron Carr

Isla Invisible share track “Pillow” debut EP out now

Dreampop is never out of fashion it seems, with selected members of each new generation embracing that classic 1990's sound. NYC trio Isla Invisible have accurately captured the mood of this era on their recently released debut EP1 via Velvet Blue Music. With their obvious (and admitted) influences such as Slowdive, Cocteau Twins and next decade practioners The xx on display, the group delivers in single Pillow (streaming) a waltz with the pace of Mazzy Star's “Fade Into You,” a song that lulls you into a hypnagogic state where melody ultimately merges with an overwhelming cathedral of organs and guitars. It's a potent formula, eliciting waves of emotional responses and feelings while immersed in this ethereal world. Second track “Outward” impeccably captures the male-female tandem vocals of Slowdive's Neil and Rachel, emphasizing similarly styled minor key harmonies. Those harmonies go even further on third song “Frail Device” where soft female voices swirl around in the background and complement the centrally placed male vocal line. The 7” vinyl is now available for order, and accompanying download card comes with 2 bonus tracks. -Dave Cromwell





Pecas explore the night on After Dark, play Union Pool 10.11

Rarely is an artist able to evoke the spirit of “night time” in a way that encapsulates all its mysterious, ethereal, and melancholic characteristics as Sandy Davis does on her most recent effort, After Dark. Over the course of six sparse tracks, Davis, who records under the project name Pecas, employs somber and occasionally haunting vocals that leads listeners on an interpersonal nocturne journey, capturing the nuance of sentiments we all occasionally feel when the lights go down - like a lonely evening wishing for company on “Tuesdays,” or self-deprecating thoughts gone awry on “French Kiss.” This, in tandem with acute retro synth accents and discordant, noodling guitar work, solidifies After Hours as a landmark release for Pecas; Davis’ ability to perfectly fit form to function in terms of the linkage between lyricism and instrumentation puts this record in a league of its own, and a standout among recent releases.
Pecas will bring her evening soundscapes to Union Pool on 10.11, performing alongside Nathan Xander. You can stream After Hours now on Bandcamp. - Connor McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Matt Allen.
