VIDEO: Desert Sharks party til the end on “I Don’t Know How to Dress for the Apocalypse”

NYC garage rock outfit Desert Sharks make a good case for the new subgenre—tentatively titled “armageddon punk”— on new song / video “I Don’t Know How to Dress for the Apocalypse.” Bolstered by anthemic guitar tones and breakbeat major-minor chord changes, the track (and their latest offering from forthcoming full-length debut Baby’s Gold Death Stadium) details the myriad of seemingly unlimited challenges humanity faces that we seem in no hurry to fix: the wage gap, global warming, that sort of thing. Against this macabre-yet-unavoidable subject matter, Desert Sharks hunker down to have themselves an apocalypse party; as lead singer Stephanie Gunther truthfully points out, “it’s ok, no one knows what we’re doing anyway,” raucous celebration in the face of the end of everything seems like a pretty good plan. Watch it below, and catch Desert Sharks on September 20th at Mercury Lounge. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Lilith deliciously blends pop and rock in new album "Safer Off"

How wonderful it is to listen to music that takes the mind on a pleasant ride down memory lane: if you are having upbeat memories about better times you may be listening to the vibrant indie-pop of Boston’s Lilith. The Allston-based duo that is Hannah Liuzzo and Kelsey Rose Francis flies high in its latest album Safer Off, a posh blend of garage rock and pop that ticks all the boxes of appealing modern music. Do you want dynamic guitar riffs? You got them! Need some sweet pop choruses? Coming right up, friend! From the popping drums of Adam Demirjian to the female harmonies that accentuate each song, if a rich sound is what you crave, the music will satisfy you. The group recently celebrated the release of Safer Off with a performance at Great Scott and is sure to keep the momentum going this fall. We are streaming the cheery track “In Real Life” below. - Rene Cobar
