Worchester's Secret Lover plays Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery on Sunday (12/13)

As heard in the songs "Sometimes My Wine Becomes My Lover" (streaming below) and "St. John's Cemetery," Worchester, Massachussetts-based psych-rock quartet Secret Lover released its deliriously joyful self-titled album this past September. The tremulousness of such classic '60s tracks as Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" is palpable on these fuzzy guitar cuts but, largely due to the macarbe yet fun lyrics ("In the prison of passion's ancient vision,/Sometimes my wine becomes my lover”), they transcend homage to become markedly vivid. Secret Lover plays at Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery in Cambridge, Massachussets on Sunday (12/13). – Zach Weg 

   

CHALAXY Drops Psych Groove Single "Vs. Eros"

 Who needs drugs when you've got CHALAXY?

The Nashville psych pop 5-piece have earned a reputation for bringing the party and positive vibes with their energetic, playful and ever-evolving live shows, and their latest single "Vs. Eros" is a glowing reminder that they've got the musical chops to match (and a serious tease for their upcoming album.) Exhibiting their continued growth as a band with more complex dynamics and tasteful experimentation, "Vs. Eros" is a psychedelic swirl of electronic folk rock with a rhythm funky enough to shake a tailfeather to.

Give the trippy single a listen below and get showered with a literal shit-ton of confetti at their release show tomorrow night 12.11 at The East Room with Oh, Grandpa, aave and Soft Bodies. (Get there before 10pm, and it's free!) -Caroline Bowman
