Noise purveyors Kill Alters play October Residency at Market Hotel

Avante-garde electronic trio Kill Alters will take up residency at Market Hotel for the duration of October, lending their disconcerting, experimental sound to the Brooklyn venue every Thursday throughout the year’s spookiest month. Building on the momentum of their three archival releases earlier this year (Kill Alters Archives Vol. 3, Bonnie Baxter Cobweb Sensations, and Kill Alters Vol. 4), the New York noise outfit will accompanied by a slew of supporting acts, some of which include Brian Chase (of the Yeah Yeahs), Ikue Mori, Hisham A, and more, all of which will culminate with a Halloween “Mutant Massacre” performance. Attendees will also have the opportunity to give donations to Al Otro Lado, a bi-national legal services nonprofit who provide advocacy representation to deportees and other individuals in need of immigration-related civil rights services. Catch a show, support a good cause, and stream Kill Alters Archive Vol. 4 below. -Connor Beckett McInerney 

   

Tough Age - Garage Pop Music Video "Me in Glue", Junction City 10.19

Tough Age are a power pop trio on Mint Records spending most of their time in Toronto. They have a rather lengthy discography available on their bandcamp page which includes their latest release “Shame”. Earlier this year they released a video for the single “Me in Glue”. This tune is a catchy lo-fi rocker accompanied by a music video which shows the singer of the group having just a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. The guitar licks sound happy though! Tough Age will be playing a huge show at Junction City Music Hall on Saturday October 19th with the legendary BA Johnston and pop punk extraordinaire’s First Base. – Kris Gies

   

Cheap City debuts flamboyant single "Welcome to Lizardville," plays 13th Floor Music Lounge 10.26

Cheap City wants to welcome you to its sonic carnival of funky basslines and grandiose trashings. The group’s latest single “Welcome to Lizardville” is a festive track that leads listeners up and down the band’s tendencies for funk-punk stylings: one minute you are grooving and moving to an infectious bassline, and the next you are drowning in a gritty pool of cathartic noise-rock. The new track is tailored for crowd-interaction, and one could imagine the song being a flamboyant hit live. Cheap City keeps the big sound going and preserves that maniac jam-band feel that has always characterized the group; the good times keep on rolling. The group will be playing at the 13th Floor Music Lounge in Florence, MA, on October 26th. Stream the new single below. - Rene Cobar

   

Listen to Trends' indie-rock scorcher, "Branches," play two shows in November

On their poignant new single, "Branches," Trends deal with time's ever-changing nature. The surging first single, which started as the lo-fi project of Marina Paiz, considers how we deal with change in our lives, and how the people we care for come in and out of our lives—some we outgrow and others outgrow us. It's a bittersweet feeling that Paiz conveys through the now quartet's powerful blend of shimmering guitar leads and surging choruses. "Time passes me by/ pieces, they flake right off me," she softly sings, following the song's placid ebb and flow before it builds into a driving indie-rock scorcher.

Trends are playing two upcoming shows in the month of November, starting with The Other Door in North Hollywood on November 6, followed by Harvard & Stone on November 20. Check out the video for "Branches" below. - Juan Rodríguez
