Go West Young Aloud – Tour Dates And New Single

Our very own hometown of Boston is losing one of its great rock and roll bands. Aloud, who you might remember hearing about on these very virtual pages, are moving out to Los Angeles, but they’re leaving us some parting gifts. Firstly, they will of course be touring their way out west. The No Sleep ‘Til LA tour commences April 24th in Manhattan. See the current list of dates below. Secondly, they’ll be releasing a new limited edition, double A-side 7″ single – “Empty House” / “Falling Out Of Love” on the same date, which you can pre-order now, right here.

“Supernatural” By The Love Elektrik

Nashville pop/funk band The Love Elektrik burst onto our charts just a few months ago, and have been featured on our radio show a couple of times already. They’ve now released their new single, “Supernatural,” a catchy, slow burner about which the band says, “We’re not 100% sure, but we think this song is about an encounter with a vampire stripper at an EDM festival. Listen and decide for yourself!” You know…that old chestnut. Listen below, and buy it here.

Video Of The Month: “I Get A Kick Out Of Being Kicked Around By You” By Royal Chant

As comfortingly familiar as certain strains of retro-tinged garage rock can be, it often has a downside of being perfectly predictable. Not too bad a downside, of course, if you’re just trying to recapture the raw excitement of vintage rock. But it’s so much more thrilling to hear the classic tape echo tones and amped-up fuzz-jangle taking unexpected musical turns. That’s what Australia’s Royal Chant has brought us with their new track, “I Get A Kick Out Of Being Kicked Around By You.” It’s a great title, to begin with, and the Merseybeat groove of the track is a baseline for inventive melodies and chord changes that never do quite what you expect them to to. Royal Chant has cleverly paired the song with some cut together ’70s-era home movies to complete the vintage vibe. Watch below.

New Album Teaser From Kat Robichaud

The flashy, glammy, rocking powerhouse known as Kat Robichaud has spent the last couple of years focused on her live production of the Misfit Cabaret, “a splendiferous variety show centered around magical music with a rotating cast of eccentric performers.” From the clips we’ve seen, it’s quite a spectacle. So we cannot wait to see how this endeavor informs her brand new album, for which she recently dropped a teaser. The short video is primarily a trailer for the ever-evolving Cabaret performances, but the music is a clip from the upcoming album, and the projects are intrinsically intertwined. For each new Misfit Cabaret event, Robichaud has been writing a couple of new originals, and so we can expect to hear a lot of that music on June 2nd, when the album is released.

Viv And The Revival: “Faded”

Philadelphia’s Viv and the Revival have been on our radar for a long time now, and their progression as artists has been incredibly impressive to see. Viv Peyrat was already crafting sophisticated pop songs when, in 2012, he earned the opportunity on OurStage to have his winning track “Fire” featured in a campaign for the London Olympics on NBC. Just a few days ago he released a new single called “Faded,” and it finds Viv at the top of his game. The song has a great groove, driving but atmospheric, punctuated with acoustic guitars, and all glued together by Viv’s smooth and soulful vocal. He closes the deal with a delicious hook and a great lyric. Listen below.

Naked Woods: “Clouds Of The Storm” Video And New LP

Hungarian artist Naked Woods (aka Eszter Polyák) makes unassuming mini-epics that are difficult to classify. They sound comfortingly familiar while remaining remarkably original. On the new single “Clouds of the Storm,” some New Order-esque musical changes, a bit of Cyndi Lauper vocal inflection, and a wholly modern electronic groove make for an engrossing listen. Polyák creates, records, and mixes her music herself, and with each release sounds increasingly confident. Listen below.
