Snail Mail brings lo-fi pop to The Windup 11/8

I dare you not to fall in love with Snail Mail. The Baltimore-based trio crafts lo-fi, indie-pop ballads that are simple, sweet, but instantly relatable and posess a depth that's hard to not engage with. Their latest release, Habit, may have a bummer-summer vibe, but you'd be hard pressed to not be humming their tunes after listening the EP. Catch Snail Mail playing The Windup 11/8 with Tony Molina, Wildhoney and Wipeout, and in the meantime stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

 





Infinity Crush's whimsical, soul-searching LP 'Warm Equation'

DC’s infinity Crush has unleashed a whimsical, soul-searching LP entitled Warm Equation. Ready to tug at your heartstrings is the first song off the album, "Drowning Here With All My Friends", with a delicately fingerpicked guitar and the bright, wistful voice of Caroline White. Just as her voice finishes up establishing a spellbinding melody, it seamlessly melts away into a dream-like atmosphere, peaceful and full of bliss. Get a taste down below. Check out also the video for single 'Wipe Down.' -Ashley Muniz





Listen to Blacksage's Aptly Titled EP Shivers + Live at Ottobar Nov. 5

Shivers - seems like an apt title for Blacksage's latest album. The combination of Josephine Olivia's seductively sultry vocals and Drew Scott's hypnotic production evokes such a physical reaction. Listening to more Blacksage is a no-brainer in my book. Shivers is out now via Friends Records, and you can catch them live on Saturday, November 5 at Ottobar. (Photo by Holly Burnham) - H.M.

Buzz Alert: Sneaks crafts minimalist punk on debut "Gymnastics"

Sneaks, the one-woman project of Eva Moolchan, produces music that seems mezmirzingly simple, but is wildly potent. Gymnastics, the latest LP from the artist, is a bass-driven/drum machine-backed work that could probably be loosely filed under "avant-punk." But while the album feels like it encapsulates part of the DIY aesthetic, Moolchan's polished vocals--that alternate between conversational talk-singing and hushed whispers--add an eloquence to the tracks. While the instrumentation remains minimalist, her voice fills in the cracks, making you question why people even add guitars to things anyway. Listen to Sneaks streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni
 





VA-based Inter Arma serves up dynamic doom metal

Inter Arma might just be the sludgy saviors of doom metal. The VA-based band serves up tracks that are not just heavy, plodding metal licks, but instead offers dynamic, quaking aural-scapes that reveal a world of more merciless gods. "Transfiguration," a 9-minute stand-out track off the band's latest release, Paradise Gallows, is operatic in scope--utilizing guitar sweeps that echo the glissandos Mussgorsky used on "Night On Bald Mountain" to conjure demons--and threatens to place the listener into the desperate throes depicted on the album cover. The sonic imagery is so trenchant that it's easy to feel gripped by the terror of being ensnared by a mighty, black sea. For metalheads, Inter Arma is a band to watch, and Paradise Gallows is a staggering juggernaut of an introduction. Check them out streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni
