MELVINS + SPOTLIGHTS @ THE TROUBADOUR

Friday’s set showcased A Walk With Love and Death (out now on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Records) and a couple of new tracks, including the spectacularly named “Sober-delic (Acid Only)," which the sold-out crowd headbanged along to just as hard as classics like “Queen” and “The Bit."

THE REGRETTES + THE TRACKS @ LEVITT PAVILION

The band’s songs are mostly earnest and edifying hymns to the teenage experience, songs about telling off the shit-talkers and talking yourself up, even to yourself.

TRACK PREMIERE: BILLY CHANGER “NEW YEAR DREAMS”

L.A. producer/musician/mutant-pop visionary Billy Changer is back with the second single from his forthcoming LP: "New Year Dreams" catches that auld-lang-syne feeling of delirium and joy perfectly, with perfectly precise Cure-meets-Wire guitar work underscoring this story of romance, regret and hoping against hope. Changer starts his tour with the mighty Broncho today with double dates at Brooklyn's Union Pool, and returns home for a show at the Smell on Aug. 4. Full tour dates below!

TRACK PREMIERE: WARGIRL “LITTLE GIRL”

Last night, they played the Hammer, and today Wargirl releases the first single from their long-awaited debut EP, slated for release later this year on Sweden's Lab259 label. "Little Girl" matches shimmering new wave melody with a little feel-good funkadelic falsetto to make a song perfectly suited for a long summer drive or a wild summer dancefloor. Visit Wargirl here!
