Rodney Tennor celebretaes release of debut EP 'Smother' at Rough Trade on 12.05

Rodney Tenor's music embodies the same personality as Vince Vaughn's character in the indy-comedy classic "Swingers." His two tracks to date emit that same cool, suave confidence that approaces the line but never crosses over into offputting arrogance. On "Prognosos Hypnosis," Tenor sings sweetly over a funky, Neptunes-inspired beat, displaying the kind of range and poise requisite for any true RnB artist. His lyrics don't embody any sort of deep meaning, but contain vibrant emotional undertones that will resonate with all those who have suddenly found themselves "glowing up," as the kids say these days. Tenor has exhibited all the indicators of talent and potential on his limited offerings to date, and he will hopefully deliver on them with the release of his debut EP 'Smother' on 12/5, whose release will be celebrated that same day at Rough Trade. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

The Districts Benefit for Standing Rock Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Protesters have been gathering for months near Standing Rock Sioux reservation to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, which poses a threat to water resources and sacred Native American sites. With state officials ordering activists to vacate the area and an incoming President financially invested in the 3.8 billion dollar project, the thousands camped in the snow and freezing temperatures certainly could use any help possible battling the odds and greed of Corporate America. The Districts recently posted a couple of demos ("One to Another" & "Alice"), which you can stream and purchase below, with all proceeds going to the Standing Rock Medic & Healer Council. Please donate.

New Track: "Be Like Mike" - The News

"Sophisti-pop" outfit The News seduces with its latest single, "Be Like Mike". At first, the instrumentation comes off as seemingly innocent and playful. However, the throwback track eventually encourages you to grab that friend, who already has a significant other, and explore where an evening alone together could take you. "Trying hard to recreate love - how you remember."

New Music Video: "Reality TV" - Sports

Ohio transplants Sports are reissuing their second album, All Of Something, on cassette via Father/Daughter Records. Below is the new music video for their single, "Reality TV," which was directed and edited by Nick Nazmi. You'll find the group sadly but fondly watching friends partying around them and giving the gang love on their own SportsTV channel. Its ending feels rather bittersweet, but Sports have some more good news for their friends and fans with the release of their debut, Sunchokes, on tape, as well as digital streaming services like Spotify and iTunes.

Tasseomancy share hallucinogenic video for "29 Palms"

Tasseomancy's new video for “29 Palms” is an accurate visual interpretation of the twin sister duo’s sound. It’s colourful, dreamy, and even hallucinogenic at times. It plays like a beautiful journey, albeit in its own creepy sort of way. The uneasiness of the visuals mirror the thick atmosphere of the song, evoking an underlying tension that is never really broken. The song and video are both individually compelling, but they're much more powerful when combined into a successful merger of dread and comfort. - David Levy
