New Music Video: "Everything is Nothing!" - Canine 10

"Everything is Nothing!" represents Canine 10’s half of their split vinyl with Secret Nudist Friends, released via Good How Are You Records. The band recently issued a caricatured video for the song, starring Emily McKinley Hill & The Dummy. Watch as Hill takes the opportunity to unleash some serious pent-up anger/frustration. You can catch Canine 10 at The Pharmacy on Saturday, July 27, with Debonair, Nothing Wrong, and A Very Special Episode.

Bandie releases fuzzy, energetic new single "It's Getting Late," plays Resident on 7/10

Bandie, the stage name of singer-songwriter Brian Hill, reflects on the pleasures of a fun night out on his new single, "It's Getting Late." Hill, alongside his four-piece band, write a hooky, good-natured power-pop song that also turns up the fuzz. "It's getting late so/why the hell we aren't asleep," Hill merrily sings, a sweet, simple sentiment that's balanced with a harmony-driven melody and an energetic blast of winding guitars.

"It's Getting Late" is taken from Bandie's forthcoming EP, due out later this year. Catch his single release show at Resident next Wednesday, July 10. - Juan Rodríguez
