Alt-rockers The Effects, to play DC9 10/14

With fuzzy basslines, bold vocals, and a classic, guitar-driven sound, DC-based The Effects deliver angular alt rock with indie rock vibes. Anthemic, and instantly catchy, the trio's sound is aggressive but melodic and immediately accesible without being boring. You can check out the band playing DC9 10/14 with Cinemechanica, but in the meantime stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

 

   

Cardinal Harbor

Cardinal Harbor has released a video of a live living room performance of "$60 T-Shirt". The band released their latest LP, Euclid, over the Summer.

You can catch Cardinal Harbor at Pub OK on October 21st.

   

Hellaphant bring high-energy punk to the International 10/29

With most tracks clocking in at the under 2 minute mark, Knoxville-based Hellaphant is proof that good things come in small pachyderms packages. The band plays high-energy, garagey punk, perfect for your parents-out-of-town party, or the next time you're vandalizing something. Check them out live at the International 10/29 with *repeat repeat and Mountains Like Wax, and in the meantime stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

 

   

Ambient-Indie Rockers, Mountains Like Wax, to play the International 10/29

Mountains Like Wax deliver the Southern-tinged ambient-indie rock you didn't realize how much you wanted. The TN-based fourpiece's EP, Tetraology, hits in all the right places: serving up some quiet introspection to the tune of post-rock vibes. Check out their EP streaming below, and be sure to catch the band 10/29 at the International with *repeat repeat and Hellaphant.-Olivia Sisinni
