Joyer trudge onwards on new split EP

Slowcore outfit Joyer's new split EP finds the North Jersey duo leaning further into their unhurried, speaker-crunching sound, providing two tracks replete with innovative lyricism and roughly-hewn guitars. Recording alongside North Carolina’s Aunt Ant (formerly of NYC) and Toronto’s Poor You, their tracks “Juniper” and “In Time” are trudging, at times uneasy drone rock— band members Nick and Shane’s unison sing-speak provides hazy non sequiturs (“I hear the mosquitos when they bite down,” “I’m a ghost-running backlight) alongside stuttering chord progressions and trudging rhythmic breaks. The end result is an engaging mix of slacker rock wordplay and discordant instrumentation, both boisterous in its separate parts yet quiet in execution, and a sound that will resonate with fans of Red House Painters and LVL UP. Give it a listen below. —Connor Beckett McInerney

From the Submissions: anjali.rose "Reach For It"

 Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist anjali.rose hones in on the unnerving quietude of life under quarantine in new single “Reach For It,” featuring Noah Drielblatt, a atmospheric offering that melds swirling synths with guitar-driven songwriting. Methodical acoustic arpeggios, underscored by murky electronic instrumentation, provide background for Rose and Drielblatt’s hushed vox — a centering performance amid a sea of disorienting (and at times disconcerting) ambient accents. In this way, Rose conveys a quiet in the eye of the storm, an indoors meditation while the outside world is marked by muted chaos and the occasional ambulance siren (which joins the sonic tapestry towards the song’s conclusion); in many ways, “Reach For It” mirrors our own individual efforts to maintain some degree of composure throughout the strange times we’re living. Give it a listen below, and check out the rest of the tracks on the Quarantena Contigo mixtape, which features a slew of international artists and highlights the Musicians’ Emergency Relief Fund, who are providing micro-grants to working musicians seeking relief throughout COVID-19.

Mare Berger's arresting chamber pop expands on "The Moon Is Full," new LP out 5.26

Much like its lunar namesake, “The Moon Is Full” waxes gradually from the quiet piano and somber vocal performance of singer-songwriter Mare Berger to full chamber-pop instrumentation, becoming luminescent while maintaining a central, melancholy energy. The track, centered around Berger’s vox and lyricism, details the “sudden loss of a loved one and the pain and healing that comes after,” its impassioned theme amplified by the track’s increasingly expansive instrumentation — “I pray that the seed will grow,” Berger sings, their voice becoming more confident, transitioning from raw pain to acceptance as cinematic background strings expand in a flush of raw emotion. Dramatically-rendered yet wholly human, it’s an arresting effort, one that promises more raw, orchestral offerings on Berger’s forthcoming LP The Moon is Always Full, out June 5th — until then, stream the single below.

New Myths' polished punk shines on "Bad Connection"

Mixing a health dose of early 00s alternative and riot grrrl energy (with a raucous electronic bent), Brooklyn’s New Myths return with new track “Bad Connection,” a scorching, take-no-prisoners ride. Lyrically marked by free associative imagery that evokes the general restlessness at the track’s core (descriptions of television static and disease abound), Bad Myths instrumentally charge forward, offsetting their often grunge-y subject matter with sunburnt power chords, dynamic vocal gymnastics, and pervasive synth arpeggios. Such contrast allows the band to truly hone their strengths, primarily their ability to create rock that’s both crusty and glitzy, channeling a punk subject matter in a way that’s more polished than most (while maintaining that indefatigable spirit). Recommended for fans of groups like Sleater Kinney and the B-52s, stream the single below, and keep an eye out for the group’s forthcoming EP “All the Shiny Things” out later this year.
