Saturday Night Sounds: Naked Hour - "Crossfade"

Everyone's got a song, or maybe a whole album, that soundtrack their transition from the younger years into adulthood. But to me making your own soundtrack is a whole other story, and it's one the kids of Naked Hour happen to be writing. The trio are gearing to drop their sophomore effort Always On The Weekend, which flourished from biting old memories. 

The second single they've shared from their upcoming album, "Crossfade," is a story told in that same vein, backed by simplistic instrumentation that carries it through to the crashing release of the song finish. It's the kind of track you listen to when you're feeling nostalgic, and helps you shake that forlorned feeling.

Always On The Weekend is due out at the end of June via Good Cheer Records


Motion Studies open for Body Language at House of Yes on 06.21

Motion Studies’ Facebook page perfectly describes their music as “weird disco”. The musical project of Tyler McCauley is an electric dance band that incorporates post-punk elements. Their single “In Our Days” is a wildly catchy and explosive track that has the potential to tempt any (famously static) New Yorker into dancing along to the beat. Motion Studies will be playing at the House of Yes in Brooklyn on June 21st in support of Body Language. Check out their other great single “Distractions” below. - John Honan

Bat House premieres single 'Patterns' and kicks off tour

By fusing math rock’s atypical rhythmic structures and angular melodies with psych rock’s dreamy, chromatic guitar drawls, Bat House has forged a sophisticated, personal sound. The Boston based quartet has been spending the past year or so working on their forthcoming self-titled album, set to be released late this summer, and they’ve been kind enough to let us at The Deli New England give you the first taste! “Patterns” (streaming below) is the aural equivalent of kaleidoscopic jigsaw pieces from various puzzles that somehow seamlessly fit together– a complex sonic patchwork of shifting rhythmic structures, metered grooves, and infectious guitar chords. The track takes you on a cosmic journey; by the time the band reaches the final shift, singing “colorblind but i still see the patterns in my head” - as the guitars chord spread out in an electric sprint - it really feels like free falling through a kodachrome sky. The band just kicked off their tour last night (full calendar here) and will be making their rounds across the country in the following month, but locals can catch them on June 19 when they play Middle East Upstairs. - Adriana S Ballester, photo by Kit Castange
