"Don't Hold Me Now" - New Madrid

"Don't Hold Me Now" - New Madrid

SOUNDS LIKE:

The Police on acid; cosmic spaz; slow burn punk

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE:

For their latest outing, this Athen's, GA based quartet has shed some of the clean lines and jangle of their 2014 debut Sunswimmer in favor of a more...enlightened sound. magnetkingmagnetqueen gets pretty far out (see the 11 minute + track "Guay Lo") but tracks like "Don't Hold Me Now" find the band striking a perfect balance between slacker indie-pop and some seriously heady sonic explorations.

Episode 138: Futurebirds Actual

This week on the podcast we’re getting meta as we invite Futurebirds down to the basement to talk about Futurebirds, a little bit about us, and much, much more. Out on tour now in support of their most excellent new album Hotel Parties (you can hear our take on it here), these road warriors have seen it all and dish some honest takes on life on the road, making it in the modern music industry and the often strange relationship between critics and musicians.

Plus Typefighter may be dead, but Ryan McLaughlin soldiers on with his new band Polyon! Their upcoming EP Blue – out 11/13 – is a loud, feedback drenched reminder that McLaughlin is one of the best musicians DC has to offer, and we’ve got the first single “Reserve” for you to make the rock with right here, and right now.

Get comfortable, check your facts, and settle in for yet another delicious hour in the basement, here comes Episode 138 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!
