Guerilla Toss - 'Gay Disco'
Guerilla Toss

Guerilla Toss hail from the growing Massachusetts rock scene (Speedy Ortiz included them on their top Massachusetts albums of 2013), but while '90s indie rock is the main inspiration for most of those bands, Guerilla Toss are more interested in the dissonant sounds of noise rock and wacky art punk. Their newest album, Gay Disco, came out this past December via NNA Tapes (Blanche Blanche Blanche, Co La) and you can stream two of its tracks, "Pink Elephant" and "Trash Bed," below.

Guerilla Toss played NYC a few times last year, often with labelmates Blanche Blanche Blanche, and they've got a few upcoming shows with another NNA artist, Ryan Power, that brings them back to NYC this month. They'll play an album release show on January 30 at Silent Barn, and that bill also includes no wavers Sediment Club, Northern Spy-signed NYC avant-pop band Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Baltimore experimentalists Horse Lords, No Magic, Brat Pit and Jeremy Smoking (Justin from PC Worship). That show is $10 at the door. All dates are listed below.

Cloud Becomes Your Hand also have a bunch of other local dates coming up, before they head out on a longer North American tour with Guerilla Toss in March that kicks off in NYC on March 2 at Roulette and takes them to SXSW. All of those dates are listed, along with streams, below...

Identity Picks

Burlington, VT musician Ryan Power is set to release the followup to I Don't Want To Die, with a new album, Identity Picks, due out on June 25 via NNA Tapes. Similarly to someone like Ariel Pink or John Maus, Ryan imagines would-be '80s pop hits with a bedroom aesthetic. One album track, "The Prize," draws almost entirely from new wave-inspired pop, and on another, "New Attitude," he dives into the world of pop balladry. You can stream both of those songs below. That's the album art above.

Ryan will be celebrating the album with a record release party in Brooklyn on July 14 at Glasslands. The show is with electronic artist Co La (who also opens for Joan of Arc and for Avey Tare soon), fellow VT pop weirdos Blanche Blanche Blanche, Mexican Summer-signed Xander Duell and DJ Turkey P (of NNA Tapes). Tickets for that show are on sale now.

His only other show that we're currently aware of is another record release party in his home state. Check out those song streams below...

Happy Jawbone Family Band - 'Tastes the Broom'
Tastes the Broom

Attention Vermont hippies living in Brooklyn! Blanche Blanche Blanche, who released the impressive Wink With Both Eyes in 2012, will be teaming up with fellow VT psych poppers Happy Jawbone Family Band, Ryan Power, and Son of Salami for a show in Brooklyn on March 17 at 285 Kent. Tickets for that all-around great bill are on sale now.

Blanche Blanche Blanche are set to follow Wink With Both Eyes with a new album, Wooden Ball, on March 5 via NNA Tapes. While Wink With Both Eyes saw the band interpreting '60s pop through a lens of chillwave similarly to Maria Minerva, the first single for their new album, "Rich Man," immediately shows they're on to new stuff. Sporting cleaner and larger production, the track hops manically from genre to genre in a Congratulations kind of way. You can stream that track below.

Happy Jawbone Family Band recently signed to Mexican Summer, and they're currently working on their first full length for the label, which they're doing with Jarvis Taverniere of Woods. But before we get that, the label released Tastes the Broom, a compilation of Happy Jawbone's pre-Mexican Summer material, and a great one at that. The group mixes psych pop and freak folk in a manner not unlike Akron/Family or early Animal Collective, and deliver it through a screen of lo-fi. You can download the album's opening track, "Now Everybody Rock Like You Got AIDS," above, or stream it at the bottom of this post.

Ryan Power released his debut full length, I Don't Want To Die, in 2012 via NNA Tapes, and he opts for smoother pop vibes than the rest of the bill, as you can hear by streaming the album's title track below.

Son of Salami is probably the quirkiest on the show, and he's planning his new album, Sontava Nights, for a release some time this year via Goaty Tapes. Our first taste of that album is the track "Baby Mayo," a captivating blend of VHS synths, cardboard drums, and singing-into-a-walkie-talkie vocals. You can listen to that one below too.

All streams below...
