Noise Pop Preview: Ramona Falls, Social Studies, Mahgeetah, and Harriet Play Brick & Mortar February 21

On February 26, Noise Pop returns for its 21st year to bring us independent music, film, and art. There’ll be some incredible emerging—and not so emerging—musicians playing this year, but there’s only room for one preview per blog entry. Here’s the first:

Ramona Falls, Social Studies, Mahgeetah, and LA’s Harriet rock the festival on February 27 at Brick & Mortar. The lineup is a smart gradient from Mahgeetah and Harriet’s rootsy, Wilco-esqe airs, through Social Studies’ pared-down dark pop, to Ramona Falls’ heavily-layered experimental pop.
 
Doors open at 7:00, and tickets are $12 in advance/$14 at the door. While you tap your foot impatiently, take a look at this interview with Mahgeetah. 

   

Social Studies's New Single 'Terracur' + Album Out Nov. 13

The new single "Terracur" from San Francisco's Social Studies comes on with a slow, sexy drum beat and builds into a dramatic song assisted by singer Natalia Rogovin's deep voice, confrontational lyrics and sultry guitars. It's a ballad Beach House could write if they laid off the synths and turned up rock n' roll. Listen once and you won't be able to stop.

Social Studies's sophomore album Developer comes out Nov. 13 on Antenna Farm Records, The record release party will be at the Independent on Nov. 9 and tickets are available here.
