From the Submissions: Early Spring’s “hang around + hurt me bad”

Brooklyn psych rock outfit Early Spring’s music is an impressionistic, watercolored soundscape, replete with hazy vocals and bright, verdant guitar work. Their latest split single hang around + hurt me bad disorients from the start, inviting the listener to let the band’s screaming riffs wash over them; despite the apparent intensity of the group’s gain heavy instruments, their coupling with the Early Spring's meandering, echoing vox induces a strange calm, a sort-of meditative calm in the eye of a tropical storm. Tune in below, and catch Early Spring at the Kingsland on December 12th, supporting Squeegee Men.

   

Annie Hart to release second solo album, plays Union Pool on 12/13

Dreamy, introspective songwriter Annie Hart releases her sophomore solo album “A Softer Offering” this month, two years after her “Impossible Accomplice” debut. Already known as an innovative film composer and founding member of Lynchian synth-faves Au Revoir Simone, Hart continues to expand her body of work with this latest release. Opting for a more spacious, minimal sound, first single and video (streaming below) “Wilderness Hill” centers around a steady low note pulse and stark electric piano chords. With self -directed video footage shot in the songtitle referencing area of Margate, England combined with hometown Rockaway Beach imagery, Annie's hushed vocals match this early morning contemplative mood. Follow-up single “Don't Breathe For Me” employs singular held keyboard pads, angular electronic percussion and deep-twang melodies behind a raw vocal recitation on the need to move on. The whole album is a cohesive work that emphasizes the spaces inbetween our hectic lives, where our own thoughts are encouraged to mingle with the artists creations. The album is out in full on 12/13 with a release show that night at Union Pool. - Dave Cromwell
