Music Bones' new EP The Scratch Tape

Music Bones' recently released EP The Scratch Tape ranges from DIY Punk to AniDifrancoesque (that's a phrase now, I promise). "Tell Me Sweetly" opens the album with disonant guitar riffs that transform from rock to an almost twinkley soundand back. The song "Quarter Afternoon," my personal favorite, begins mid-album. It's a simple song with bright guitar arpeggios, beautiful, full vocals, and a pleasantly sedating effect. You can catch Music Bones live, Sunday October 19th at Club K in Baltimore, Oct. 21 at The Black Squirrel in DC, and Oct. 25 at The Green Island in DC. --Hannah Brady

New video for Paperhaus' "Cairo"

 DC's Paperhaus are ramping up for their first full length release early next year. Shortly after returning from a tour of the east coast, they dropped their first single, "Cairo," and have just released it's companion video. Directed by Nigel Lyons (who's been doing some amazing work for the best bands in the local scene), the video channels booth the energy and excitement of Paperhaus' live show, and the vivid colors and vibrant tones of the band's recordings. These masters of DC's current DIY scene are set to dominate the national stage. Catch them locally while you still can at The Black Cat on October 13th, and DC9 on October 23rd--Natan Press

Wanted Man's "Slow and Steady" video.

 DC's hottest band Wanted Man have released a video for their garage-rock blitz "Slow and Steady." Ahahaha! It's funny 'cause the title is misleading. I know you have less than two minutes to check out the video below, recorded at DC's house of houses The Paperhaus. When does this album drop? I need it. --Natan Press

The Funk Ark record release show for Man Is A Monster this Friday!

The Funk Ark are releasing their new album, Man Is A Monster, on October 14th via Ropeadope Records. Recorded at Richmond's Montrose Recording (an amazing space that has quickly become a premier studio in the DMV, recording many previous DC Deli Artists of the Month including Avers, and People's Blues of Richmond), the album is like going on a Caribbean cruise through space on acid with an afrobeat orchestra following you around deck while you sail past galaxies and supernovas. The songs are all instrumental jams, but the changes are so tight and inventive that the energy never ever wanes (not for one second), and each track is over much too quickly (which is the opposite reaction I usually have to this sort of thing). Six action packed minutes on the mothership feel like three. It's a trip. Don't miss Funk Ark's amazing live show, supported by the equally incredible Black Masala, this Friday, October 10th at Black Cat. Check out the title track below. --Natan Press

The Nightingale Trio Wrap-Up D.C. Tour

For the first time Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland hosted the beautiful sounds of The Nightingale Trio. This touring group, inspired by traditional Eastern European music, is comprised of Rachel LaViola from Texas, Sarah Larsson from Minnesota, and Nila Bala from California, who now resides in Baltimore. The women of The Nightingale Trio met during college while performing in the Yale Women's Slavic Chorus. After graduation they decided to keep providing the public with the harmonies and blends of traditional Slavic folk music. Last year, while on tour, the songbirds completed their first album, "Letya," within 4 hours. Letya means fly in Bulgarian – the perfect name for the album according to Bala. “Nightingales are prevalent in Eastern European folk songs and we always have to fly to one another to tour.” The Nightingale Trio is currently planning another east coast tour. But until they fly to a town near you, enjoy the splendor of the pure, rich vocals of The Nightingale Trio below. –Sade A. Spence
