New Music Video: "Dirty Dungarees" - Jo Kusy

We've officially crossed over into the lazy, hazy days of summer. If you haven't made it to the beach yet, Jo Kusy reminds us why we might wanna make plans soon before the sun sets on our summertime fun, in his latest video for "Dirty Dungarees," which is the album opener on his new LP No One Else out now. Kusy will be bringing his 60's Laurel Canyon folk-pop vibes to Boot & Saddle for his cassette release celebration on Staurday, July 29 that will also include Brian Hill & The NohStarrs and Illiminati Sequence. Don't hide away in your air-conditioned room, letting summer pass you by.

   

ROXINY debuts single "9 Months" + plays Planned Parenthood benefit on 07.17

In her debut single "9 Months", Brooklyn singer Roxiny builds an immersive story which speaks to the besetment of destructive relationships. Included in her forthcoming EP, Rituals, the track develops a climactic build-up through heavy percussion that surrounds the steady dream-pop synth and droning guitar chords, pulling in the listener until the end of this emotional and loaded four minutes. Featuring the singer's intense and full vocals, which have earned her collaborations with Sleigh Bells and Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), the single stands as a personal message from the young artist, who is an advocate for women's rights and victims of abuse and injustice, by working with organizations like GEMS, which assists sex trafficking victims. Listen to the single, streaming below, and don't miss Roxiny next live appearance at the Overthrow New York Boxing Club within a benefit for planned Perenthood.. -Tafari Lemma

Bedroom poppers thanks for coming moves to NYC (from Chicago), plays Trans-Pecos 07.03

The bedroom pop produced by three-piece thanks for coming sets itself apart for Rachel Brown's distinct vocals that complement their vivid lyrics, often tackling existential themes (“I’ve got my hand inside my skeleton / trying to make myself into a puppet / so someone else can live my life.”) Their new EP ‘thanks for having me’ was finalized before moving to Brooklyn (from Chicago) earlier this year. The record offers a bare bone, often tongue-in-cheek take on lo-fi that relies on simple arrangements and charming melodies, leaving the listener wanting more. The (very active) band will be playing their next show at the Trans-Pecos on July 3rd. - Lilly Milman
