From the submissions: Good Time Mystery Vision detail love and life on "Cala Lillies"

Brooklyn-based psych-rock trio Good Time Mystery Vision detail the stabilizing quality of love and relationships on new track “Cala Lillies.” The band’s second single since their formation earlier this year, the song finds its footing through swelling instrumentation and vocalist David Jacobson’s dynamic vocal delivery; against forlorn guitar lines and various synth accents, Jacobson’s lyrics detail the turbulence of our modern lives, and the buttressing nature those close to us have as we contend with personal problems. While love songs are quick to venture into overtly sappy territory, Good Time Mystery Vision have a knack for maintaining sincerity and massive riffs in tandem. Listen below, and keep an eye out for the band’s next drop on December 4th.

   

King Jane's "Deep in the Garden" deftly mixes jazz, R&B, and pop

NYC-based quartet King Jane incorporate a wide range of genre influences into their sound, a consequence of the band’s founding members Michael Sanders and Kenny Florence meeting while pursuing masters degrees in music composition at The New School. Equal parts R&B, jazz, and alternative pop, their most recent effort “Deep in the Garden” exudes the outfit’s consummate musicianship, weaving in and out of different time signatures and motifs—the track starts as a soft-bop, replete with meandering keys and crooning vox before shifting into an explosive, guitar-driven drama around the two and a half minute mark, before finally landing on a driving, noodling outro. “Deep in the Garden” places King Jane somewhere between 70s soft rock and contemporary synth-driven indie; stream it below.

A Deli Premiere: "Pretty People" by World Federal Organization Club

It’s a happy Saturday, New England: revel in the luscious synth-rock of Boston’s World Federal Organization Club. The band’s latest single, “Pretty People,” is a time-traveling composition that will dazzle you with groovy ‘70s disco basslines, sharp ‘80s synth stabs, and ‘00s indie-rock electric guitar flourishes. The vocals, with a hint of Modest Mouse wildness, lead the way toward a liberating-atmospheric breakdown, a finale that drops you into the present with modern electro flair. The upbeat track flaunts its undeniable sonic colors, charming and luring you to let loose and dance away; a single play of the song just won’t do. “Pretty People” is a preview of the band’s upcoming debut record, currently in its final stages, according to the Tufts University students that fashion the group. With shows on the horizon this winter, we are thrilled to keep an eye on World Federal Organization Club; premiering their brand new single is only the start. - Rene Cobar, Photo by Gabriella Melchiorri

   

Fine Motor Control - Shoegaze/Brit-Rock Combo, Bovine Sex Club 11.16

Fine Motor Control are a 4 piece group based in Toronto. Their sound is a solid combination psychedelic shoegaze and contemporary brit-rock. They started rocking together in 2018 and have released one album thus far. This self-titled album begins with “Radio My TV” which gives a solid understanding of this band’s style. It’s a rockin’ tune with plenty of shoegaze noise all while not losing the vocals in the mix. Fine Motor Control are opening for LA’s Goon on Tuesday November 19th at Bovine Sex Club. Sicayda and Foreign Moon are also on the bill. – Kris Gies
