Turnover
Turnover
Virginia Beach's Turnover are four dudes (Casey + Danny + Eric + Austin) who have (somewhat quietly) been slinging the underrated emo pop hits for a bit now. But the band appears to have bent the genre box because they're now veering away from such emotive, instantly accessible riffs and nudging their melodies (still super accessible) towards easy, breezy, 100% chill territory. I'm blasting them right now (truth) and this listener is left feeling mighty content in the Land of Ahhh. You can come hang here too. There's plenty of room.

If you're not familiar with these guys, you can mine Turnover's past all you want on the World Wide Intrasphere (they've released a couple of EPs and one full-length, if we're agreeing to decide that eight songs = a full-length, and I think we are). But I suggest you begin your Turnover listening experience with their present and work your way backwards because the songs I've heard from their upcoming new album, “Peripheral Vision," are DOPE. That's D-O-P-E and yes, Virginia Beach, there is hope in it. Sometimes.

Speaking of that new album, it comes out May 5th in the Year That I'm Writing This on Run For Cover (a fine label home to the following fine bands that I have also written kind words about: CSTVT + Elvis Depressedly + Modern Baseball + Pity Sex + Whirr + probably some more but I'd have to go back and check... and there are no rearview mirrors here at Rockness HQ... why do you think I never update my band profiles after I write them). You should probably pre-order it or something because it's going to be a smash. And I should probably mind my own business.
Turnstile
Turnstile
Hardcore band from Baltimore/DC/Ohio area, USA since the late summer of 2010.
Reptaliens
Reptaliens
Portland, Oregon's Reptaliens is the husband and wife team of Cole and Bambi Browning. Named in reverence for their interests in cult mentality, transhumanism, and conspiracy theories, Reptaliens quickly evolved from a bedroom-recording project to a full-fledged band that explores fringe pop culture through analog synthesizers, electric guitars, melodic bass lines, and Bambi's lulling vocals. Inspired by all things science fiction, writers like Philip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami, and music ranging from Paul McCartney/Wings to African artists Francis Bebey and Nahawa Doumbia, the band creates psychedelic, chameleonic dreamscapes that fall sonically and visually somewhere between abstract expressionism and surrealism. These ideas and influences all coalesce on FM-2030 - named after the renowned transhumanist writer and philosopher - the band's debut album on Captured Tracks. Full of dreamy melodies and catchy hooks, the feel-good vibe often belie something a bit more sinister.
