Another band to be on the lookout this Treefort Music Fest. It’s Pregnant from Sacramento, CA. Their latest release is called Duct Tape and it has a very eclectic mix of music; ranging from electronic, to pop, to psychedelic, to experimental. Pregnant is in the same vain of trippy pop music as Animal Collective. I really enjoy the course that they take on Duct Tape. “She Noticed” starts off the album with an awesome psych-rock jam, then it gets more electronic and weird going further. I also really like the tracks “Dead Dog Head” and “How Does it End?”. Really cool stuff from Pregnant, make sure to catch them Wednesday eve at Neurolux.
Here’s another band not to miss at Treefort Music Fest this year. It’s Swim Camp from Philadelphia, PA. Their latest release is called SCUBA. Swim Camp has an awesome indie-rock sound to them. A real good mix of grunge, pop, and heavy vocals make up the majority of songs for Swim Camp. The album SCUBA is really well laid out, the progression of the songs goes from bright to darker, then back again. Highly recommend this to everyone. Make sure you catch them Friday night at Treefort Music Fest.
Hi everyone, we are still here (barely) with a bunch of new indie music. Treefort Music Fest 7 is coming up in just under a month. So we are going to start featuring bands that you should see there, and also just listen to in general.
First band out of many is Acid Tongue from Brooklyn, NY. They have a great sound with a mixture of pop, grunge, and indie-rock. Acid Tongue’s latest release is their debut album called Babies. The song-writing is on point and the guitar licks are excellent, and though the lyrics are sometimes lacking in originality, that is definitely part of the charm of Acid Tongue. My favorite track is “Humpty Dumpty”, it’s super catchy! They have a bunch of tour date through April on the West Coast, and be sure to check Acid Tongue at Grainey’s Basement on Saturday night at Treefort Music Fest.
It’s that time of year again. Time to get hyped up for the next Treefort Music festival. We finally have our video review of Treefort 2017 up and available for your viewing pleasure.

It’s been almost four years since the epic indie punk masterpiece Posture Theif hit the shelves. The Autonomics just added another rock solid album to their lineup; Debt Sounds was self-released September 1st 2017. Maintaining and refraining from complaining, their blend of bluesy indie pop and punk rock sensibility carries through in Debt Sounds, dusting the listener with nice thoughts and an enchanting realism.
The ultra catchy standout “Bad Blood” starts “We drove away from the city, we took all our money and we weren’t afraid to die” sets the tone of youthful invincibility for the album. This track highlights why The Autonomics totally kick ass, there’s a tangible vibrant energy that drives the crashing cymbals and rapid distorted guitars. You get the sense these songs are inspired deeply by the various excitements of adulthood in a not so straightforward town and world. The tempo moves from uncontained almost frenetic in “I Love You, Oprah Winfrey” to just slightly slower but still rocking “She’s into Death,” and “Nada Surf Hotel.” The album closes with some sincere words of encouragement “everything’s gonna work out, tomorrow we’re going to kill it,” which enforces the positive tones throughout. If Debt Sounds by The Autonomics isn’t on your playlist, we highly suggest you correct that mistake and haven a listen.
