Moruga Scorpio Releases EP "1"

Moruga Scorpio's debut EP, 1, is an unapologetic collection of sweet, groovy, pop tunes that even music snobs can get into. The tunes blend surfy, classic sounding pop reminiscent of The Beach Boys with darker, heavier, weirder, psychedelic elements that bring The Butthole Surfers to mind. The songs are self-proudced by Evan Donohue, the mastermind behind Moruga Scorpio and former Diarrhea Planet member. Upon listening, it seems he harbors a strong distate genre limitations. There really isn't a single category you can definitively box these songs into, and that makes his music exciting. Morgua Scorpio is for anyone who simply likes great songs with great production. Give it a listen:

Miki Fiki Releases Debut EP

Miki Fiki is a new project started by singer/songwriting Ted Hartog. His debut self-titled EP is a brass-heavy collection of heartbreaky pop tunes that have an irresistably sweet blend of nostalgia, catharsis and melancholy. Clearly influenced by indie pop sensations like Whitney and Ben Folds, Hartog's work is lyric-heavy, with triumphant melodies that stick like glue to memory. The EP's three songs chronicle the chaos of the post breakup emotional state and painstakingly organize it. If this short work is any indication of what's to come from Miki Fiki in the future, indie pop fans had better be on the lookout because, sonically, there's nothing else like this happening in Nashville.

New Track: "Pink Pigging" - Old Maybe

Gracefully staggering between total abandonment and a blistering attention to craft, Old Maybe’s trio of Jazz Adam, Ricardo Balmaseda, and Nina Ryser will be returning with a collection of new sonic treats. They recently premiered the lead single, “Pink Pigging,” off the band’s forthcoming EP, Piggity Pink, which is due out on April 14 via Ramp Local. The track demonstrates the group’s particular take on dadaist post-punk, weaving together technical prowess and tongue-in-cheek playfulness that exemplifies a bolder, more refined Old Maybe. They’ll be performing next in Philly at The Pharmacy on Thursday, March 30 with Ursula, New Fries, and Chaser, before heading out on a Northeast run.

Buzz Alert! High Waisted unveils new video for "Trust" + tours

With such a touch-and-go winter, I'm not going to be convinced that the first day of Spring has actually arrived until all of the snow has melted off my front lawn. Luckily for me, I have garage pop band, High Waisted, to warm me up and get me into that summer mindset. The NYC-based group deals in sunshine surf vibes, drawing heavily from music of the mid-60's, but puts their own, quirky spin on things. Their songs are fun, high-energy tracks guaranteed to have you California dreaming, even while you shlep through the remainder of slush. Right now, the band is touring the East Coast in support of their latest album, On Ludlow, but we're sure that they won't be away from New York for long. In the meantime, take a look at the official video from their new single, "Trust" streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni
