'Teen' beat

 

The Haunted Youth are a Belgian-based band putting out some damn good dream pop, at least based on their debut release Dawn of the Freak.

Hello again

Photo for EVG last year by Stacie Joy 

Big week for local band Hello Mary... the trio — bassist Mikaela Oppenheimer, guitarist Helena Straight and drummer Stella Wave — announced the release date for their debut LP — March 3, 2023. 

They were also profiled in Rolling Stone in a piece titled "Say Hello to the Next Great New York Rock Band." 

And then there is a brand-new single-video... this is "Spiral."

'Teenage' kicks

 

For the Halloween weekend... the Cramps with "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" ... with live footage from August 1980 and  "Urgh! A Music War." (Not the best-quality video, unfortunately.)

The song also makes an appearance in "Halloween Kills," which you really don't heed to see.

Miss you

 

Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile, the debut album from Pretty Sick, is out now ... the new video here is for the track "Self Fulfilling Prophecy." 

The band, with local roots, will be at Bowery Ballroom on Nov. 21

Read our Q&A with vocalist-bassist Sabrina Fuentes from last December right here.

P.S.
Today is Bandcamp Friday, where the platform waives its revenue share, and all earnings go to the artists.

This is a fantastic ramshackle day

 

A new video dropped this week for a previously unreleased Joe Strummer track titled "Fantastic" ... included on the record "Joe Strummer 002: The Mescaleros Years." 

The video, including scenes around the East Village, features archival footage shot by Strummer, Dick Rude, Julien Temple, Don Letts and more. 

Filmmaker Lance Bangs, who has directed videos for Nirvana, Sonic Youth, R.E.M., Green Day, and more, pieced together unseen footage from the artist's archives to lend a visual accompaniment to "Fantastic," and Strummer's lyrical oratory around dreaming, making change and better days... 
And the track: 
Recorded in December 2002 at the Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, "Fantastic" was one of Strummer’s final recordings, with vocals laid down just weeks after Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros played their last-ever live show at Liverpool University on Nov. 22, 2002, and exactly one month before Strummer’s untimely death on Dec. 22, 2002, at the age of 50.
H/T, Dr. Bop!

'Foul' play

 

This is "A Foul Form," from the most recent release by Osees (aka OCS, Oh Sees and Thee Oh Sees) ... one of the best live bands around (IMO)... and they are playing tonight and tomorrow night out at Warsaw in Greenpoint.

Freaks to the front

 

Australian punks Amyl and the Sniffers released this live video clip this week from a recent show... a good preview of what to expect when they play Terminal 5 on West 56th Street next Friday night... in support of their most recent release, Comfort to Me.

That 'Thing' you do

 

And now for some 80s-style emotive synth-pop courtesy of Au Suisse, the debut record from NYC-based music vets Morgan Geist and Kelley Polar (aka Mike Kelley). Read more about the two here.

Enthusiasts of this era can check out their recently released record and spot the loving similarities here and there to Scritti Politti, Pet Shop Boys, Talk Talk, Visage and Tones on Tails, among others. 

And the video here is for "Thing."

'Spring' break

 

A heartfelt new song by East Village-based singer-songwriter Jim Andralis ... the video released last week is for "New York City Spring," a love song to COVID-era NYC. (This Instagram post provides more background about the track. The stop-animation video is by Alex Dar.)
