New The Madalean Gauze Band LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Nothing Feels Beautiful Anymore, the bewitching new LP from The Madalean Gauze Band, has freshly arrived. An enchanting, psych-rock excursion grabs your attention, and pulls you into the group's orbit. A strange, mysterious, magical aura is counterbalanced by incisive, personal narratives. Boot & Saddle will be hosting the band’s album release on Saturday, April 20 (4/20), supported by Garden Gate and Pouring Silver.

Pink Avalanche Announces “III"

Pink Avalanche has announced that the follow-up to their 2014 sophomore LP, The Luminous Heart of Nowhere, will be released on April 18th via Past/Futures Records & File 13 Records. The album will be called III, and will feature 12 blistering new tracks. This will be the band’s first release as a trio, former bassist Pete Coke left for Puerto Rico last year.

Pink Avalanche is the work of Che Arthur (formerly of Atombombpocketknife), drummer Adam Reach (The Poison Arrows), and guitarist Kortland Chase.

We are hoping to share some sounds from this impressive album over the coming weeks, but until them enjoy the 2014 video for “In Empty Spaces” from the sophomore album.

You can help Pick Avalanche celebrate the release of the new album at Empty Bottle on April 18th with Anatomy of Habit and Djunah.

   

Debut Knifeplay LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Pearlty is the debut full-length album from the Tj Strohmer-led outfit Knifeplay. A delicate dusting of shoegazing atmosphere melds with breezy introspection. Hovering weightless over the top of one’s thoughts and then crashing climatically down on points of emphasis, there’s a subdued, somber, tranquilizing affect. It hits you in what seems like slow gradual motion, but the blow leaves a mark. (Photo by Doug Dulgarian)

   

New The Russells LP (Remixed) Available for Streaming & Purchase

James Garcia (Over the Counter Culture Record) remixed The Russells's Escape from Philadelphia. The album sits in a noisy, psych-metal zone. It’s heavy with an uncompromising, urgent, instrumental drive; however, the raw edges have been somewhat smoothed out, bringing the brutal/blunt sound of the band into clearer focus. The band will be performing next in Philly on Friday, April 19 at Creep Records, as part of a lineup that also includes Zinskē, Screamcloud, and Reflex Machine.
