You may be familiar with Brooklyn singer/songwriter Mitski, who mostly makes twee-ish indie pop, but she's now also fronting a metallic prog band called Voice Coils, which is primarily the brain child of former Roomrunner member Sam Garrett, and also features current and former members of Extra Life, Cellular Chaos, Epistasis, Porches, Skeletons, Feast of the Epiphany and Couch Slut. That's an impressive (and diverse) resume! Voice Coils don't just look good on paper though. Their new "In Sixths" / "Field and Border" 7" came out this week and is a terrific blend of spiraling prog riffs, complex arrangements, dark atmospheres and Mitski's soaring, operatic take on dream pop vocals. Hear both tracks for yourself, below.

Extra Life at Webster Hall in 2010 (more by Sarahana)
Experimental Brooklyn trio Extra Life have decided to call it quits after four years of releasing music. They last released Dream Seeds in 2012, their first (and only) record for Northern Spy. But before the band is gone for good, they'll be playing a farewell show in Brooklyn on Sautrday (1/19) at 285 Kent with Tyondai Braxton & Ben Vida, Oneirogen, Sam Mickens, and a DJ set by NMCM (Krallice). For the show, Extra Life will "be joined onstage by former Extra Life members for a few classic EL songs which [they] haven't played in years." Admission is $12 at the door.
Extra Life have also written a farewell letter, and in it they promise new projects from all three members. Nick Podgurski is working with his band Feast of the Epiphany and they just released a 7" this week which you can stream below. Caley Monahon-Ward is working with his band We Can't Enjoy Ourselves who released the album, Make A Mess of Sacred Ground, in December, which you can stream below. They also have a few upcoming NYC shows on February 8 at Knitting Factory with Holopaw and Love As Laughter (tickets), and Union Hall on March 13 with The Better Letters and The Eggs (tickets). And finally, Charlie Looker is working with his band Seaven Teares, who will release their debut album, Power Ballads, on March 19 via Northern Spy. You can stream a track from that album, "Meet Me," below.

Colin of Krallice at House of Vans, 8/24/2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Bloomberg oddly hasn't called a press conference yet, but in my eyes it is officially "Colin Marston Weekend." As discussed, Saturday night (9/22) will be spent celebrating Dystrhythmia's new LP at Saint Vitus with special guests The Wayward and Praetura (tickets) but tonight is another show for a different Marston project. Krallice headline Acheron tonight (9/21) with Mutant Supremacy and Feast of The Epiphany. Tickets are available at the door.
If you're heading to Acheron, get there early to catch Feast of the Epiphany, a project featuring Nick Podgurski (Extra Life), Andrew Hock (Castevet) and Tony Gedrich (STATS). The band, which dabbles in everything from doom to ambient to gothic post-punk, is preparing to release the new LP, Temperance, via New Firmament on October 20 and have dropped off a new track in the form of "Second Pulse" which is streamable below.
Check out that new track, a stream of the new Dysrhythmia, and more Feast of the Epiphany material below.
