Catch Up With Us: Puppy Angst Shares New Music in November

Philadelphia’s own Puppy Angst is swiftly moving onto the scene with their fuzzy, noisy sound sure to make you feel welcomed & in your feels.

The celebrated the end of 2018 by releasing their first full band track, “meet at the show.” Represented by Good How Are You Records, Puppy Angst had help from Dylan Kittrell at The Blank Space recording & mixing “meet at the show,” while the track was mastered by bassist Kyle O'Connor.

Check it out streaming below!

Having been released on November 16th, the track holds it’s own as an impressive & well constructed track that pulls at the heartstrings while also remaining easy to listen to. I’d be interested to see where Puppy Angst moves forward in the new year, and I wonder how they vibe on stage, as well as how they continue to grow and become an valuable piece of Philadelphian DIY culture.

Super Group Neaux Stream Debut Album

Perhaps the stars aligned when Neaux was formed, as the band is comprised of musicians scattered throughout the music industry – yet together, they’re able to produce a rich and crunchy 90’s-esque sound that gets you bobbing your head. What’s even better, is that they’re currently streaming their first album, Fell Off The Deep End, in full on AltPress.com

“Old friends making new noise.” 

The grunge-y, shoegaze-y “alternative” rock outfit is made up of Sierra Kay (VersaEmerge), Nick Fit (Trash Talk, Loss Leader), Ryan Briggs (Have Heart) and Chris Peters. What’s cool about this line-up is that they befriended each other while sharing the stage at Warped Tour. Years later, Nick and Sierra decided they wanted to collaborate and now, they’ve become a band to look out for in 2016 – a fun and exciting tale bound to inspire.

Neaux’s 8-song effort, Fell Off The Deep End is being pressed and distributed through a boutique label, Iron Pier, and will be available this Friday, September 16th.

Neaux Release New Video, Announce New Album.

Brooklyn based shoegaze band Neaux have released their first single and music video for their upcoming debut album Fell Off the Deep End.

Harking back to the days of Lush and Sonic Youth, Neaux are part of the recent resurgence of the shoegaze sound. Muddy guitars, dreamy vocals, and soothing melodies are the centerpieces of that sound. Originally formed by the main songwriters Sierra Kay and Nick Fit, Neaux was soon joined by Ryan Briggs and Chris Peters to fill out the sound.

The new song “Make Me Stay” is the first track we get to hear from the band’s upcoming release. The video is simple, featuring Kay and Fit, and utilizing a number of almost unsettling camera angles. It’s also strikingly red. The video fits the song excellently.

Fell Off the Deep End will be released on September 16 from Iron Pier records. 

Tracklist:
1. Slowstroll
2. Somewhere Up North
3. High Hopes
4. Only Lonely
5. Make Me Stay
6. Beaten Bruised and Over It
7. Deep Dive
8. Sorry I Said It
