Irresponsible video for "Up and Up"

First things first, I love everything about Irresponsible. After I found them on Facebook about a year ago, I immediately got a message from their singer/guitarist, Ryan Paladino, thanking me for liking the page and supporting the band. Outgoing musicians who don’t take themselves too seriously make music scenes that people can be proud to become a part of. Once I got an email from my editor asking me if I’d be interested in covering their new music video for the song "Up and Up", I was thrilled to cover it. The video is witty and funny, just as self-deprecating as the band in itself. Babes, booze and the one-liner “Let’s get this motherfucker started,” combined with great music to rock out to make for a fantastic music video. Check out their video, and their music. They’ll appreciate it just as much as you will. Irresponsible are currently recording their 3rd album. --Hannah Brady

Acme's new video "Girlfriend Tonight" & release show on June 21st

Acme is a smorgasbord of psychedelic music. They taste of soul and funk and indie-pop. “Their entire sound is ancient and futuristic…they got that good energy, that raw talent, and that good music….Acme is the future.” I believe it. Acme’s new single, “Girlfriend Tonight” is tight 80’s-style funk played at slow-jam speed. It could have been reminiscent of heavier 90’s R&B, but the live rhythm section and guitars give the song a classic sound, dressed up in shiny modern synths and bling. It’s like a candy shop of psychedelia: slick and sticky molasses covered in sparkling rock-candy, and everywhere you turn there’s another sweet effect. I haven’t yet mentioned Che’s vocals, which are no less classic, and strong, making this song an instant earworm. Don’t miss Acme’s free, all-ages, single release show at new outdoor showspace The Lot @ Atlantic Plumbing on June 21st (presented by Union Kitchen, DCDIT, and DCist). --Natan Press

Opal Rose's Universal Soul

Opal Rose’s release Universal Soul, shows an entire universe of sound. Nice beats and Opal Rose’s beautifully ranged voice create a trance-filled album. Reggae, jazz, latin, hip hop and R&B influences mix into an intoxicating concoction. The album is appropriately named, since it can bring together worlds of sound into a cohesive and alluring universe that I , for one, would love to live in. Opal will perform at Tree House Lounge on June 25th. --Hannah Brady

Finley Martin's Backtracks

Solo artist Finley Martin has spent the past two years creating his premiere album, Backtracks. Finley’s deep voice brings a rich flavor to hauntingly beautiful piano harmonies in the first song of the album, “The Empress of Ireland”. As the album continues, it becomes apparent that his voice is able to do much more than lay the melody for a classical melody, but also fit a variety of modern genres. His versatility creates an album which seems to explore each subgenre of modern rock. The vast majority of his album is acoustic guitar and voice, and the diversity of his sound makes Backtracks captivating. You can catch him this Thursday, June 12th, presented by the RLife Live Series at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, or June 19th at William Jeffrey's Tavern    --Hannah Brady

Cigarbox Planetarium

When you listen to the fresh pops of percussion from Cigarbox Planetarium you can’t help but be intrigued by the fresh sounds of their instrumentals. Comprised of members Andy Charneco and Deanna Pineda, Cigarbox Planetarium have been playing shows around the DC area since 2008. Creating both their own unique compositions as well as reviving old hits such as “My Funny Valentine” with their reminiscent tones, one can’t argue that Cigarbox Planetarium is something different. Often playing shows with Charneco on guitar and Pineda on keyboards, the two make for an intriguing combination that oftentimes makes one think of them as a more “jazzy” and “courageous” version of Daft Punk. You won’t want to miss out on experiencing Cigarbox Planetarium, their next show is at The Windup Space in Baltimore on June 22nd. --Rohan Khanna
