Morgan Saint Creates Downcast Pop in Video for "YOU," goes to SXSW

Donning an aesthetic drawn from the experimental side of runway fashion and new wave androgyny, the left-field tendencies of Alternative R&B newcomer Morgan Saint are on full-display in the music and video for "YOU." The video sees the singer performing her subdued brand of vibrant and forlorn synthpop amidst an empty stage; creating a barren, yet, intimate atmosphere to match the song's crestfallen tone. Saint will be performing at this year's South by Southwest Festival following the release of her debut EP, 17 Hero. "YOU" can be streamed below. - Alexander Beebe

 





Sloppy Jane to play SXSW, new album out 03.02

Sloppy Jane is a band with bizarre and grotesque inclinations and an interest in translating them into their performances. Naked bodies, colored dye, and television screens set a backdrop for melting inhibitions as the music (and often the musicians) tumbles into chaotic fits. It’s a must-see for fans of avant-garde, performative punk. Deservingly, the band, led by Haley Dahl, will bring its ravenous live show to SXSW this year with a string of other dates surrounding the trip. Leading up to those gigs, Sloppy Jane will unleash new album “Willow” on March 2nd with a release show at The Glove on March 7th. The group is currently scheduled to play SXSW showcases for Melted Magazine (March 12th), Desert Daze (March 14th), Invertebrate (March 17th, day), and Siren Sound (March 17th, night). – Cameron Carr

Nadine (Phantom Posse + Ava Luna) releases debut LP, plays SXSW

Split between NYC and Minneapolis, Nadine is a band that freshen the mystery of how a band can function when its members live far apart (hey, it worked for Pavement!). This is a collaborative project involving singer Nadia Hulett (part of the collective Phantom Posse) and Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez (both of Ava Luna). Their recently released debut LP is a playful and extremely enjoyable take on avant-pop, with jazzy overtones. The band celebrated the album's release at Baby's All Right on February 8th and will travel to SXSW in March.

Born Again Virgins EP Release

 Do you dig virgins? You will after you hear the brand new self titled EP from the Born Again Virgins.

    I had the distinct pleasure of listening to the EP ahead of the official release and I was quite impressed. But perhaps impressed is not the right word. Impressed is what I might be if this were the band’s 3rd or 4th release… Rather I was blown away that what I was hearing was the debut release from this band!
    Some of the most distinctive qualities of the Virgins’ music exist in pairs. Their EP has a very mature sound while maintaining the raw energy one might expect from an initial release. The vocals are incredible, nay badass, without losing the femininity of vocalist Anna Roenigk. The melodies, rhythms, and grooves of Chris Garrigues on guitar, Taylor Turner on bass, and Paul Piñon on drums are a striking blend of punk-grunge power with softer sounds and progressions. The juxtaposition of sounds hearkens back to the good ol’ days of bands like the Pixies yet the Virgins still present fresh, unique, and contemporarily relevant music. If you only go to one EP release this year make it the Born Again Virgins May 19, 9pm at Hole in the Wall. Be there or be square!
