Mood Music: Altadore - "Capable Wolf"

Summer's only officially been here for a few days but don't you already wish it was raining again? We do, and the perfect song to fit our rain ridden mood of longing happens to be the newest track from Altadore, titled "Capable Wolf."

Coming off his upcoming August release Opal, Luna, and Hymn on Randm Records, "Capable Wolf" tells of the heartache of an ending relationship. You can hear the sincerity of pain in David Katz's voice as he sings "I'm a wolf, I'm wolf/I don't know what I'm capable of/Just howling away most days." Featuring Patti King from Rad City on violin, her sister Kyleen King on viola and Jeff Bond on drums, Katz's vocal tones set over this Portland pro-played orchestral indie pop illcits shivers.

We'll just be wolves, howling away these hot ass days until we can brood without sweating. To put yourself in the mood, give "Capable Wolf" a listen below.

   

New Track: "Angels In The Sunshine Hotel" - The Afterglows

Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party) and Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) have united to form The Afterglows. "Angels In The Sunshine Hotel," currently available for streaming at NPR Music, represents the first glimpse into the duo’s self-titled debut album, which will be released via Salinas on August 19. The song captures a sense of fragile intimacy as strings and acoustic guitar mingle with delicately natural vocal harmonies. The result is an unsettling push and pull, whose proximity is warm, yet eerily unresolved.

   

Rosali Record Release Show at Ortlieb's June 26

Philly singer-songwriter Rosali recently released her debut full-length album Out of Love via well-respected local indie label Siltbreeze. The LP effortlessly flows with her mellifluous vocals and a tinge of psychedelic twang, helping to root her songs in a timeless sonic spectrum. Rosali just came back from a run of shows in the South with Mary Lattimore, and they'll be celebrating Out of Love tonight with a hometown show at Ortlieb's. The tour buddies will also be joined by the garage-pop sounds of Baltimore's Hothead, a.k.a. Laurie Spector. I can't think of a better way to wind down this summer weekend. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 7pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
