Introducing…Sungaze

Sungaze is an American Dreamgaze band whose signature sound lends itself quite equally to the realms of shoegaze, psych rock and dream pop, with an unmistakable western flair reminiscent of some of the popular singer-songwriters of the 60’s. The band centers around husband and wife duo Ian Hilvert and Ivory.

Cincinnati’s Sungaze released Body in the Mirror, the second single from their forthcoming album, This Dream (self-releasing on August 13). This guitar-driven song has a dreamy and a spacious 60’s psychedelic sound with dreamgaze undertones.

Music by Bergman: Drab City

Mixing savage lyrics with a haunting, cinematic sound, this enigmatic duo deliver potent songs for surreal times. A heady air of dislocation envelops Drab City’s debut album, where songs of innocence and experience merge with dub, hip-hop, dream-pop and jazzy soundtrack vibes to intoxicating effect. Drab City are fixated on social alienation, violent revenge, and (perhaps) romantic love as salvation; topics not new in music, but listening to Drab City in 2020, one is struck by how uncommon they’ve become.

Doble concert de Beach House

Beach House tornen a la ciutat per presentar els seus dos nous disc en un mes, ‘Depression Cherry’ i “Thank Your Lucky Stars” (2015), un nou pas endavant en la carrera del duo de Baltimore format per la cantant Victoria Legrand i el guitarrista Alex Scally després de l’aclamat ‘Bloom’ (2012). Tres anys de silenci discogràfic en una carrera sempre ascendent on la banda ha deixat les cançons en el seu mínim esquelet, tornant a la simplicitat que predominava en els seus primers treballs. El seu so fosc i melancòlic beu d’aquells grups de finals dels 80 adscrits al segell 4AD i també del pop dels 60, transformant aquestes influències en una alenada d’aire fresc en l’estat musical actual. Avui i demà a la sala Apolo. Entrades exhaurides.
