The Raised By Wolves' new video for "Freddy Freaker"

 DC's The Raised By Wolves has released a new video for the single "Freddy Freaker" on PureVolume. "Freddy Freaker" is the lead single off their debut album, Sadie Hawkins, released in July last year. You can download the album on their Bandcamp site. Check out the video below. --Natan Press


Rap-Rock band on the rise: The Band Called Fuse

NYC/Philly/DC based collective The Band Called Fuse (that's their actual name), fronted by Brooklyn MC Silent Knight and MC and MPC maestro Soul Qloc, is hot-wiring Rap Rock back into the race. The video for “Soul Rock Anthem” from their recently released album Impossible Dream is a bare bones throwback to rock videos from the early 80s. As the MCs prowl the strobing soundstage delivering their raps, their bandmates thrash and jitter in the background with surreal vim. Balancing out the electrified raps, K-Dez’s analog croon takes over the end of the track and pulls it all together. The Fuse Nation is growing; can you feel the heat? - BrokeMc

Dot Dash opening for Psychedelic Furs!

Ahhhhh! Dot Dash is a last second addition to the Psychedelic Fur show at the State Theater, this Thursday (tomorrow, 4/3). I think tickets are still available. I hope tickets are still available. Dot Dash is the perfect opener for the Furs and I'm stoked they're getting this kind of exposure. If you miss this show, because it sells out (which is the only legitimate reason), you can catch Dot Dash on April 26th, headlining the Black Cat mainstage (with Alarms & Controls, Regents and Highway Cross). --Natan Press


Avers release new album Empty Light

Avers morphs spacey guitar riffs and distant vocals into a surreal listening experience in their debut album Empty Light. The second half of the album continues the repetitive rock backbeat displayed in the beginning, continuing to add percussion to a more vocally centered, almost pop-like sound. Heavy guitar keeps Avers well within the rock range, as vivid overtones bring a mind-expanding taste to the heavily psychedelic album. You can get a copy of the album when you see them live at the Black Cat Backstage on April 23rd. --Hannah Brady


Norman Rockwell to play farewell show in May.

Norman Rockwell originally played a more organic progressive folk rock in their album Fare Thee Well, released in October of 2012. After their album, Norman Rockwell began to blend a variety of genres in order to reach its own unique sound. The band owned innumerable pedals, and knew how to use them. Their funky bass-lines combined with the psychedelic-rock influenced guitar riffs, as drums play below. Joshua Johnson's gruff vocals felt suppressed, as if they were just waiting for the right moment to have an eruption of honesty and emotion. Norman Rockwell's live performance was as fantastic as their recorded material. The members' technical knowledge and natural talent had given them ability to create something unique to the DC scene. Unfortunately, their album title foreshadowed their Farewell show show on May 3rd (at Jammin Java). Fare thee well, Norman Rockwell. --Hannah Brady
