LA skate punks FIDLAR were in New York last week with their good buddies from Wavves for two wild ass shows at a couple of our favorite venues, Glasslands and Shea Stadium. The My Social List team was able to lure them over to the speak easy at Webster Hall in the midst of their Rolling Stone-documented romp across Brooklyn and Manhattan with the promise of free drinks, but little did they know they’d end up splitting an entire bottle of liquor and a twelver with our host, Kristina Tequila.

Out now on Cascine, Rush Midnight‘s +1 EP is a plethora of tropical vibes that’s sure to make your baby-making parts feel all sorts of tingling. Russ Manning’s moniker, Rush Midnight, is equally dichotomous as the former Twin Shadow bassist’s solo debut record – perfectly rushed beats set the danceable rhythmic pace, while each track drips with breathy lyrics that after dark is made of.
Check out the video for “Crush” below, featuring NYC subway breakdancers W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew and produced by none other than George Lewis Jr. himself:

A lot has changed since the last time I saw the band Hollis Brown (4/24/2011). They sort of had this face melting, southern rock sound to them. They were really good at what they did. Their stage presence was out of control. I don’t know if life has pointed them into a new light or some hearts have been broken or what. But I feel like their new sound is what’s shaping them into an amazing band.
Now don’t chew my head off, but the first time I listened to this new track "Cold City" yesterday, It gave me the same tingly sensation I got in my feet the first time I listened to The Black Keys. Judge for yourself and let me know what you think. Shot right in our backyard, here is the world premeire of Hollis Brown’s new video Cold City. The video sort of reminds me of the beginning of “How to Make It in America” once it gets going. Enjoy!
So if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably still got Future Islands last album playing on repeat — and luckily for all of us, Thrill Jockey will be bringing us the Baltimore synth-pop trio’s newest, On The Water, on October 11th.
To visually capture these heart-breaking and simultaneously soothing tunes is our good friend and previous Future Islands music video director, Jay Buim, who takes us on a stroll through what feels like endless summer in some of New Jersey’s hidden gems. So go ahead, play it over and over and over again until you get mad at your make-believe boyfriend for not pushing you around in a shopping cart and gently sweeping the hair out of your eyes. Oh, is that just me? Le sigh.
Check out Buim’s video for “Tin Man” after the jump and, since he’s a man of many talents, be sure to swing on by Good Company this Saturday to get a taste of the this one half of Rude Dudes’ DJ skillz.
