At first I thought Charismatic Megafauna must be the name of a rubber-suited mecha monster featured on an old episode of Super Sentai which would be pretty exciting. But instead it’s the name of the new Psymon Spine album which is nearly, if not equally exciting, depending on your feelings about the hyperkenetic Japanese teen superhero live action TV drama versus the Brooklyn-based band that co-founded the Secret Friend immersive art and music party series alongside POND magazine.
Anyhow the album in question strikes me as sounding just like the cool airport lounge music of the future we were all promised as children. But instead we got phone charging stations and Cinnabon franchises rather than having sleekly-funky space-age psych-pop bands paid to serenade harried travelers and to maybe even make them dance.
But going to airports isn’t too appealing these days so it’s all good. We’re all far better off sitting at home in front of our computers and luckily that’s just where Psymon Spine is playing an album release party to be livestreamed tonight at 8PM EST as the most recent installment of BABY TV alongside openers Dream Chambers and Hypoluxo, the latter of whom were featured not so long ago on this very blog.

This is the work of Angel Bat Dawid (clarinet), Ben LaMar Gay (cornet & melodica), Dana Hall (drums), Damon Locks (samples & electronics), and Arif Smith (percussion).
Locks had this to say about "Now (Forever Momentary Space)"; this "is about the moment outside of the timeline where everything is possible. That moment is now."
The album’s first single, "Talk To The Lord", was released on January 21st and is accompanied by the video below.
This album finds Bergman returning to her religious roots following the tragic loss of her father.
Post Punk group Nude Model has released a new single, "Heartbeat", from their forthcoming album, Love Games. The new album is set to be released later this year via No Trend Records. All sales from the 500 run Flexi single of "Heartbeat" will be donated to support Assata’s Daughters.
This is the work of Michael Guarrine (singer), Daniel Collins (guitarist), Jeffrey Kmieciak (bassist), Matt Pelkey (percussion), and Ari Neiditz (drummer).
This is the solo project of Ben Astrachan of the duo Berta Bigtoe, and "Scandal" is a Psych Pop/Folk gem that features the bass playing of Ryan Gebhardt of the band Stanley.
Moontype, Ben Cruz, Emerson Hunton, and Margaret McCarthy, have released the first two singles, ""About You" and "Ferry", from their forthcoming debut album, Bodies of Water, which is due out April 2nd via Born Yesterday.
The most recent single is "About You" and is accompanied by the wonderfully animated video from Ellie Tremayne below.
Dre Izaya has had a very productive year thus far with the release of three singles and a full length album all in the last month. Back on January 20th he kicked off his year by dropping the powerful "Sun Don’t Shine" which features the talented Oliv Blu. The single’s B-side also features a great Chicago vocalist Alex Banin and is called "More Than Friends".
Now Izaya is back with a new, emotional LP called I Fall Apart When They Leave which was released this week via Loop Theory. The album is heavily focused around the subject of lost love and was almost entirely produced by Izaya himself.
