Divey showcases serious sonic substance with new record "Beautiful Zero"

As far as DIY productions go Beautiful Zero, the latest record from Providence’s Divey (real name Alex Garzone) is a brief, but substantial listening experience carefully threaded to stimulate the mind. From the hypnotic vocal delivery and incessant electric guitar strum of “Call Me on the Phone Tonight” to the massive kick drum that drives “What U Do” the sounds stick to you as much as they stick with you. The immersive experience is generated by the smooth production of Garzone and friend Frank Mullen: the record is given an air of simplicity and bedroom-recording imagery while layering with deceptive skill. Divey is an artist on the fringe of the electro-rock revival currently spearheaded by artists like Des Rocs, which is excellent because it means he is free to go at it his way. Not easily labeled and engaging, the music of Divey is a modern treat your ears will thank you for indeed. We are streaming “What U Do” for you below. - Rene Cobar

NETHERLANDS scream into the void on "HOPE PORN," play Alphaville 7.22

Brooklyn’s NETHERLANDS makes the type of sludge rock we deserve in 2019—dark, synthbass heavy post-punk that confronts the consumerist elements of a society we all complain about (but in actuality do very little to change). From their gripes with excessive baby pics on social media (“NEGATIVE LIKES”) to the miasma of existence (“DEATHLESS”), their most recent EP HOPE PORN charts resonant lyrics for a pessimistic 21st Century mindset, all sung against the trudge of subwoofer-destroying electric instrumentation. It’s a maximalist reaction to our world, a sharp rebuke of the idea that things will get better, offering an insightful catharsis in its full-throated scream into the void. Rage on, and catch their sound at Alphaville on July 22nd, supporting Throwaway and Dead Tenants. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Get lost in the ambient, lo-fi world of Public Library Commute

New York based multi-instrumentalist Conrad Hsiang creates chill, lo-fi influenced soundscapes under the project name Public Library Commute, drawing from both Japanese hip-hop and contemporary alternative RnB to craft something novel. Last year’s sienna 1999 encapsulates these diverse genre influences in perfect form, with tracks like “fake hawaii” employing sticatto vibraphone-like noodling over Hsiang’s detached auto-tuned vocals. Hsiang’s lyricism and vocal performance in particular breathe new life into a genre of music that’s frequently criticized for its repetitive nature, elevating lo-fi from its stream-heavy, easy-listening reputation to something that is engaging—but still relaxed. Listen to it below, preferably while basking in the warm summer sun. -Connor Beckett McInerney
