The Grey A record release show!

 Tomorrow, Friday 9/19, DC Deli Artist of the Month The Grey A is playing his record release show for the long awaited new album My Country. A sweet mix of guitar-pop and folk sounds, My Country is full of thoughtful, poignant songs about a chaotic world, and challenges that face us all. Joining The Grey A will be local country crooner Kevin Dudley, and rising singer-songwriter Matt Tarka. It all happens at Comet Ping Pong, doors at 10pm (but stop by earlier to have some amazing pizza), $12.  --Natan Press

Spray Paint LP Release Show

Clean Blood, Regular Acid is the latest release from Austin trio Spray Paint. These guys – guitarists/vocalists Cory Plump and George Dishner and drummer Chris Stephenson - play grimy indie-rock with a spasmodic punk flair. The surf riffs and frantic shouty choruses pretty much equal a party. They deliver it all in such a nonchalant Sonic Youth inspired way, you might not even realize how hard they rock. Go check them out before they go on tour with their Monofonus Press labelmate, The Rebel. Hotel Vegas LP release show this Friday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. -Allison Mayoral

Clean Blood, Regular Acid is due out Sep. 23 on Monofonus Press

The Curls

The Curls released their debut EP First Date this week via bandcamp, but they will have physical copies available at their upcoming shows. The five-piece band has an eclectic sound blending horns, "electric mando-Uke", synths, and a choir of voices. Lead singer Michael Fawnsluh (Bear Weather) brings his unique style to the table with a sound that could be compared to John Darnielle or maybe Hutch Harris. The EP was produced with the help of Will Wholesome of Teenage Rage.

You can catch The Curls at The Big Dusty on Sept 20th, at Tonic Room on Oct. 5th, and at The Burlington on Oct. 16th.

Under The Scope: Lubec

There are a few things you need to know about the arcane, shoegaze-deconstructivist rockers Lubec.

By now I’m sure you’re all well aware of the shoegaze renaissance that our happy country has been experiencing for the past five years. Despite what some music snobs will tell you--things like, “There’s nothing new to expand on in the genre beyond the MBV “atmosphere”--I’m happy to report that even in today’s day of imitating imitators, there are still plenty of avenues for the genre to explore (and h8ers can suck it).

Giving truth to my bold statements above are local genre-breaching, boundary-spurning, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, dreamy art-rockers Lubec. They combine the the layered texture of MBV, the erratic unpredictability of Swirlies, the philosophy of youth advocate/empowerment bands like Sonic Youth, with an irreverence to orthodox compositional guidelines. The result? A slice of non-clichéd (unlike this statement) sonic heaven.

But don’t take it from me--the guys are releasing their debut album The Thrall on September 21 at Mississippi Studios with Night Mechanic and Old Wave (formerly the Adam Brock 4), and they were nice enough to sit down with me (albeit lacking one member) and chat about it amongst other things...

Son Step EP Release Show at Boot & Saddle Sept. 18

It’s understandable to see why Son Step is a favorite among pockets of local musicians. The band combines what seems to be a learned background in avant-garde jazz with a unique approach to songwriting and attacks it with such conviction and ferocity that it’s hard not to appreciate what they are doing from an artist’s perspective. However, that club always felt a bit exclusive, but judging by the initial offerings from their new EP Ova Nova, which is out today, the band seems to have found more of a balance between cerebral jazz and pop accessibility, which might just find them more appealing to a wider audience. Son Step will celebrate the release of their latest evening this evening at Boot & Saddle with electro-acoustic orchestral-pop outfit Grandchildren and psych-rockers Drone Ranger. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Lilly Wolf premieres video for "Pop Dream" at Hail Hail Bar tomorrow (09.19)

Lilly Wolf is the electro pop brainchild of Lilly Wolfson and (invisible) producer Alex Neuhausen, who recently relocated to NYC from the San Francisco Bay Area. Described as “pop music for pop music snobs,” the duo crafts melodic, sophisticated tunes that don't shy away from melancholy or sadness, like in single 'Pop Dream," whose video we are premièring here. Entirely shot in the big apple, the video contrasts the deep greenery of an empty Forest Park, Queens, with the concrete, graffiti-covered landscape of East Williamsburg. Video release party tomorrow (09.19) at Hail Hail Bar at 10.30.
