WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

The Lone Bellow

Nov. 12 • 20th Century Theater

Coming at us from Brooklyn, N.Y., The Lone Bellow — whose name couldn’t suit them any better — is made up of a trio of beautiful souls. Their harmonies are tight and soul-stirring, but at just the right moments, it’s lead singer Zach Williams’ Georgian drawl that cries out louder than the rest.  

Distant Correspondent

Nov. 4 • Mayday

 Distant Correspondent has been described as “wintery,” “moody,” and “Joy Division if Ian Curtis had been on antidepressants,” all of which are appropriately applicable to the band’s darkly cinematic ‘70s-to-now soundscapes.   

Mice Parade

Jan. 31 • MOTR Pub

It’s been nearly a decade and a half since New York City percussionist Adam Pierce anagrammed his name in order to christen his new solo project Mice Parade.   

"MidPoint Indie Summer" with The Bright Light Social Hour

June 1 • Fountain Square

Pinning down the Bright Light Social Hour’s sound is like describing the contents of a blender on puree. The group evokes the spirit of the ’70s with shards of Southern Garage Rock, Psychedelic Soul, electric R&B/Funk, Indie Pop and thunderously elemental Hard Rock, represented by acid-washed church and Farfisa organ, searing slide guitar and chunky riffage, all in the service of songs that are compellingly contemporary and utterly appealing.   

The Gold Rush

Gold Shoes is ready for platinum sales and legions of fans … and might just get it

People about to change the world rarely look like people about to change the world. Take Gold Shoes — central casting didn’t assemble a new millennium Monkees to storm the music world with calculated precision. Gold Shoes is comprised of oddly yet perfectly meshed parts.   

Cloud Nothings

March 22 • MOTR Pub

Hold onto your seats, Cloud Nothings fans, as we're about to exclusively break a new and crucial piece of info about the Cleveland band's second record. While discussing the development of Attack on Memory, Nothings leader Dylan Baldi reveals a curious detail: “Steve Albini bought us kazoos that we used on the second song.” Take a second to visualize a misanthropic musician/producer best known (as an artist) for writing a record called Songs About Fucking exchanging American currency for kazoos.  

Young the Giant with Walk the Moon

Feb. 24 • Bogart's

When it comes to Alt/Indie Rock, new bands appear on the radar almost daily. What has kept Young the Giant on the tips of everyone’s tongues is its ability to be more. The band channels its California home with a sound that is summery and playful, while its anthemic guitar sounds and danceable beats have a strange tendency to make you long for the beach. In a word: fun.   

Bass Medicine, MIA, and Swimsuits

Thumping Hip Hop bass isn’t just for annoying your neighbors anymore. Thanks to science, it’s now become a useful tool in the medical field. AllHipHop.com reported that researchers at Purdue University created “a new miniature medical sensor” implanted in the body that gets power from low-end bass sounds (kinda like Luther Campbell).  

The Koala Fires (Profile)

Connected friends burn with amped-up Indie Rock

What's the first thing you do when you've thought up a clever band name? Google it, of course. When Koala Fires singer/guitarist Matt Mooney did this, he was pleasantly surprised that he didn't
