Troy Ramey: When The Lights Came

On December 23, 2014, Troy Ramey’s first solo EP, When the Lights Came, was released, capping-off a long road of writing, recording and crowd-funding for the Vermont native. Currently residing in New York City, Troy’s first foray into solo music proves to be quite a success. His grasp of crafting a catchy pop song is incredible for such a relatively unknown artist. From start to finish, it’s clear that these songs were meticulously thought-out, and perfectly executed. His voice is so strong and powerful that it immediately grabs your ears and demands your attention. My two favorite tracks are the title track and “Rosary”, the single that was exclusively released via The Deli New England a few months ago. Both demonstrate such immense vocal performances that it’s hard not to be drawn into the music.

Joel Gion & the Primary Colours The Love Dimension Cellar Doors and Down Dirty Shake Play The Independent-1/22

On January 22nd, The Independent will be hosting a psychedelic music showcase featuring Brian Jonestown Massacre's charismatic percussion extraordinaire, Joel Gion and his band The Primary Colours, San Francisco's premiere psych revivalist band, The Love Dimension, psych pop/post punk band, Cellar Doors and psych soul band, Down Dirty Shake. You don't see too many full local line ups play The Independent, so do your best to attend to ensure these bands have a successful show. The more we help local bands fill larger venues, the more the venues will be inclined to give Bay Area bands a chance to shine.

Not only is the line up local, but the bands are seasoned and absolutely stellar. We love a big shows just as much as we love bands straight out of the garage. Make your way out to the Independent and have a blast!


New Track: "Shake It Off" - Hurry

Lame-O Records' six-song compilation to benefit the United Cerebral Palsy foundation, Strength In Weakness, is due out on February 3. The local label has already shared tracks from Modern Baseball ("Alpha Kappa fall Of Troy The Movie Part Deaux") and Spraynard ("Haulin' Oats"). Its latest offering is another catchy power-pop ditty from Philly trio Hurry called "Shake It Off," which is definitely not a Taylor Swift cover and is available for streaming below.

New Music Video: "Cordless Phone" - Resistor

Bringing the 80's coming-of-age-teenage-movie vibes, Resistor finds a sweet spot with "Cordless Phone." With guy-gal vocals, they weave their laments amidst bouncing synth lines. And the retro found footage in the music video below completes their aesthetic with tongue-in-cheek.

Zs Release Latest, Xe, With Show at (Le) Poisson Rouge

Brooklyn experimental trio Zs has always been defying expectations, and their latest release, the mesmeric Xe (pronounced Zee), is no different. The record features some of Zs's most accessible work, yet remains as challenging and captivating as any of their previous releases.  “Corps,” the third track on the album, begins with the hypnotic plucking of Higgins's guitar, and is immediately matched by Fox’s tom heavy fills, a machine gun patter played between toms and their rims. Hilmer’s saxophone refrains, sinewy and versatile, modulate the band’s volume and energy throughout. The rest of the album remains meticulously composed, but because it was recorded live in studio, captures the frenetic energy of their live sets. Zs will be releasing Xe tonight with a show at (Le) Poisson Rouge. - Emilio Herce (@emilioherce)
