by Isabelle Braudakis

Song of the Week: Slow Pulp“Yard”

Released: September 29, 2023

Rate: 8/10

RIYL: Momma, Soccer Mommy, Alex G, Wednesday, Snail Mail

Slow Pulp is an American Indie-rock band that came together in 2020. The band consists of childhood friends Teddy Mathews, Alex Leeds, Henry Stoehr, and Emily Massey. The record tackles themes of isolation and learning how to be comfortable with your own company as well as learning to trust and love. “Yard” has the perfect balance of slow and chill songs accompanied by dreamy rock and raw vocals to create a mellow and addictive sound. There are also some heavier, rock-influenced tracks that keep things interesting as you listen to the record in completion.   (more…)

Vakili Band Interview (2023)

Wednesday, October 25th, 2023 by The Professor

They came back 🙂 In studio with the Vakili Band during a stop on their way from NY to their show in DC at The Pocket tonight.

Ben Ostrowski ’24 once again hung out with Lily and the full band for their second in studio visit. It’s always great to have bands revisit when they have new material. We had them hang out for an hour to talk about their 3rd and latest release Honey, touring and more. Rumor has it they may do a show with Crown Me King (Ben’s band…). We can’t wait for them to come back in the spring for a show in Baltimore.

Meanwhile check out their new album and listen to the interview in case you missed it live.

Super City in-studio

Tuesday, October 10th, 2023 by The Professor

Join us today at 1 when local dance-pop-indie-new wave-party band Super City jumps into the studio for a live Studio Seizure. We’ll be chatting with Dan and Greg ahead of their 3rd album release show this weekend at the Ottobar (10/14) with guests Outcalls and Manners, Manners. Early tracks from In the Midnight Room are fantastic and wildly diverse in their energy. Super City is great on recordings but their live show is what pulls people back every time. The danceable high-energy pop sounds with great harmonies, and a synchronized stage show make them a blast live. We don’t understand why they aren’t already on the national stage but we hope they remember all the little people when they are!
