02.23: Orchin brings DIY dream gaze to Moroccan Lounge

DIY dream pop crew Orchin will bring their ethereal tracks to Moroccan Lounge on February 23rd, providing a perfect soundtrack to the otherworldly feelings that one might experience during a Mercury retrograde. If communication issues, mood swings, and more frustrations than normal have plagued you throughout this past week, Orchin's music will help you to find a little meditative corner of your mind. Their album Serene dropped last August; tracks like "Othello" and "Care At All" come packed with lush guitars and echoing drums, along with Jeremy McLennan's surround-sound voice. Take a listen to "Usually" from Serene below, and catch a chill moment with Orchin on February 23rd at Moroccan Lounge before you head back into the work week. - Will Sisskind

   

Talker drops new emo-pop lush video for "Suck Up"

Celeste Tauchar has ramped up musical output under the Talker moniker over the past several months; with the music video for the new single "Suck Up", that tornado of activity continues with mercy. Tauchar's addictive emo-pop shines in the new song, the lyrics of which discuss identity, self-reflection, and self-worth. The music video shows Tauchar in various facets of her identity, taking us from the rock star to the shy person alone at a party to the person trapped in a flurry of colorful lights and inexplicable emotion. "Suck Up" will appear on Talker's new EP Wax, which drops next month. Take a look at the music video for "Suck Up" below. - Will Sisskind

Alex Johnson of power pop project Why Dogs Why has collected a mass group of indie and DIY friends to celebrate 25 years since Green Day released Insomniac, one of the band's seminal albums. The compilation record, Jesus Christ Supermarket: A Compilation to Celebrate 25 Years of Green Day’s Insomniac, contains covers of every song on Green Day's 1994 record, including The Rare Occasions covering "Armatage Shanks", Cheekface taking on "Walking Contradiction", and Kid Carrion mixing up "Brain Stew". Folks outside of LA take on some tracks as well, including Tulsa-based Team Chino's take on "Jaded". Take a listen to the compilation album below, and enjoy one of Green Day's best all over again. - Will Sisskind
