New Track: "WHO WHAT WEAR" - MINT

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Dark Thoughts, Yowler), a new single, “WHO WHAT WEAR,” has materialized from the punk quartet of MINT. Driving bass pushes the tempo as a smooth but on-the-verge-of-frantic vocal delivery describes how the clothes you wear serves as a window into your personality (or at least, the outside world forms opinions based on what they think your clothing, and by extension, image represents). It's a high-speed streetcar that tears forward almost speeding off the rails in a mad rush, while still holding it all together. You can catch MINT at Cousin Danny’s on Monday, March 25, along with Buffalo’s Science Man.

   

Jyroscope "Mute"

Soulful Hip Hop group Jyroscope is the work of Collasoul Structure, I.B. Fokuz, and DJ Seanile. The group released their latest album, Mute, last week. This project has been in works for awhile, but well worth the wait. Jyroscope released the album title track, which features Gatz N Goods, back in May via the Kory Stewart directed video below.

   

New Track: "Spoon or Fork" - AllegrA

Yet, Not Enough, the forthcoming EP from AllegrA, is set to arrive on March 12 via Citrus City Records. “Spoon or Fork,” its lead single, captures the picturesque, dreamy qualities of a relationship's beginning. Getting to know each other while exploring a new, untarnished residence, there’s an inherent sun, shining through the blind's warmth, as every aspect appears to glimmer optimistically. Then, amid those shimmering qualities, heart-racing instrumentals run lead with guitar riffs, punctuated by percussion, providing a breaking-loose element. (Photo by CJ Simavi)

   

Bruges "The Drifted Way"

Noise Rock band Bruges has released a new single called “The Drifted Way”. This is their third single since September, and a grinding, sludgy, gem.

Bruges is made up of members of Angry Gods, Den, and Moral Void.

You can catch Bruges at The Burlington on March 2nd with Buildings, Ribbonhead, and Rash.

   

Dark Trip - Mysterious Dark Punk Band Gets 4AM Last Call at Bovine 02.22

Lo-fi power pop band Dark Trip will be creepin’ into the Bovine later this month for a seemingly rare show. Their EP “Dark Trip Demos” was released long enough ago that it’s making me wonder if they aren’t the demos but the actual record! Jokes on us. 5 tracks of scary pop punk including a track titled Tony Danza so you know it’s good. Their upcoming gig at the Bovine Sex Club is on February 22nd with Sick Things, Hot Kid and Teen Archer. 4AM last call too! – Kris Gies
