Happy Lives move to LA (from NYC) + release new single 'Sick Love'

Happy Lives - the rather unpredictable indie pop duo who recently relocated from Brooklyn to LA - are back. and this time they're trying an "alt soul" hat on for size. Having done their own spin on Beck-era "caucasian rap" a year ago," on "Sick Love," the two return with their usual appraoch of stripping down songs to their core and then adding in elements from other genres (synth-pop on this track). The result is a rather convincing song about break-ups that, despite its minimalist arrangements and simple back-up vocals, feels filled to the brim with emotion. With their outright refusal to stick to a consistent genre, it's honestly hard to tell with these dudes whether they're taking their craft seriously or simply just trying to have a good time, however, with the consistency of their recent releases it's easy to keep any skepticism at bay — for now. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Human People bring their 'sloppy poppy punk' to Silent Barn on 6.28

Human People are a Brooklyn-based band who describes their music as "sloppy poppy punk." Their debut EP Sleep Year was released back in March and features slacking attitude paired with witty and charming lyrics. On the opening track “In My Speakers," lead singer Hayley reflects on a past lover who left her feeling like crap as she sluggishly sings “I’m feeling weaker than last year”. The track “Cell” (streaming) is a more upbeat track that features pop hooks and fuzzy guitars that refuse to be ignored. The band will be playing the Silent Barn on 6.28 in support of Russel the Leaf.John Honan

Calico Blue to bring vitalized Surf sound to O'Brien's Pub on 7/1

If asked to name a band that could be representational of what's popular in indie music today, Amherst's Calico Blue could serve as an unlikely, if not interesteing answer. They have a dreamy, nostalgic sound based on pristine guitars, minimalist tendencies á la The XX, and deeply sad vocals reminscent of a lo-fi version of Lana Del Rey. Their self-described "surfer blues" is able to capture vintage elements and conteporary influences and coalesce them into something new and intriguing. Their 2015 self-titled album drags the listener down with heavy lyrics while also keeping them afloat with light guitar work. You can check them out at O'Brien's Pub on 7/1. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber


New Track: "Angels In The Sunshine Hotel" - The Afterglows

Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party) and Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) have united to form The Afterglows. "Angels In The Sunshine Hotel," currently available for streaming at NPR Music, represents the first glimpse into the duo’s self-titled debut album, which will be released via Salinas on August 19. The song captures a sense of fragile intimacy as strings and acoustic guitar mingle with delicately natural vocal harmonies. The result is an unsettling push and pull, whose proximity is warm, yet eerily unresolved.
