Atlas Jungle Play Album Release Show in CT -8/15


Atlas Jungle have been making a phenomenal impression on music listeners this Summer, and things are about to heat up even more. The group, who release their debut record From the Dirt today, are playing an exclusive album release show tomorrow night, at Stella Blues in New Haven, CT.

Their electrifying, and rather mystifying sounds and light show will take to the stage for this very special evening. The group bends genres, mixing in driven funk, tribal house, psychedelic rock, trance, and blues that uses instruments to create music and light shows simultaneously. Entire churches, libraries, and custom installations have all been used for their lights shows as seen in their music videos, which will entice your eyes as well as your ears. Information is below, and be sure to check out their latest video for “Goa Nights.” Trust me, you’ll be a fan.

Space Travel with Cosmonauts

Time warps are possible and space travel is real.  That is only if you got to see Saturday night’s performance of a California-based quarter, Cosmonauts. As one of the five openers for the Growlers’ Caravan of Stars tour, sponsored by Burger Records, the band unplugged the audience from their physical plane and inculcated Bowery Ballroom under a tide of distorted drone flood, and psychedelic haze. It is evident to note that with their cosmic-inspired name, and palpitating energy,  the group heavily filters 90s psychedelic drug-rock pioneers, Spacemen 3. The band reconfigures repetition and utilizes sound monotony that bring the listener and the performer onto the same wavelength. Throughout their deliverance of convoluted layers of guitar and noise riffs, Cosmonauts step away from the logical and transcend into a new dimension of space rock.


Catch these guys before they float away!

Watch The Outfit Perform Live on Open Air CPR

Just off the heals of releasing their newest EP, Tough Kids, in August, THE OUTFIT will be opening for The Lumineers at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday, September 15th. Located in Morrison, Colorado, the legendary theater holds nearly 9,500 attendees and the stage has been graced by legends such as The Beatles and U2.

Known as one of Denver, Colorado’s most talked about bands, The Outfit will bring to the stage an energenic and vibrant performance that will have you singing along to every song. Tough Kids was released on August 24th, with an impressive Album Listening Party on IMPOSE.

The 5-track EP is filled with echoing garage bliss that is laced with killer licks, heartfelt melodies, and straight forwarded, guitar-based pop songwriting. With their critically acclaimed single, “Caesar,” in tow, the standout track sets the tone for the record, which you can listen to above. The band has also recently signed to upcoming Indie label, Hot Congress Records.

Don’t miss out on this incredible lineup!

Adventure Galley Shares the Vibrant Video for “Weekend Lovers”

Taking a page out of the electro-indie-pop book of groups like The Killers, Adventure Galley boldly goes above and beyond to grab your attention. Their catchy hooks and pop sensibility blend to create the perfect combination of indie rock bliss. Adventure Galley are one of those brilliant bands that successfully manage to meld more than a few genres into one song, splicing together elements from all the bands you know and love, whilst creating something totally new at the same time. Formerly signed to Myspace Records after winning a Nationwide competition, Adventure Galley is back stronger, and catchier than ever. Their live show is truly a mind blowing experience and an all around audience dance party, with anything and everything as fair game.

The video for “Weekend Lovers,” is not only beautifully done with a blast of vibrant colors and intriguing characters, but it invokes human nature. Our favorite part? The lyrics and scene at the 2:10 mark.

Adventure Galley is playing at Central SPAC on October 1st in Santa Monica. It is highly suggested that you head out and see this amazing band!

Oberhofer Heads On Tour, Releases Video for “Cruisin’ FDR”

With CMJ coming up shortly, Oberhofer always brings back memories. I remember catching one of his earliest sets a few years back, as he played a CMJ day show at Piano’s on the Lower East Side. It is truly amazing to see how he, and the band,  has grown since then. Just as catchy and intriguing as when they first started, Brad Oberhofer and Co. continue to bring their music to the next level, without fail, every time. The group has just released their latest video for “Cruisin FDR,” and a slew of tour dates for your eyes and ears with Matt & Kim, Best Coast and Phantogram to name a few.
