New Jersey band the Vaughns have released their EP, rom-coms & take-out. Its title stems from the lyrics of “All Weekend,” a synthy new wave-inspired song about staying home and doing nothing. Other songs “Bushwick” and “Raina,” are similarly chill, good for sunny and rainy days respectively. “Bushwick” is of course an ode to the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood, while “Raina” is a love song: “I’m falling in love, so what more can I say? / Oh, you’re a glimpse of sun on the rainiest day.” The Vaughns are coming to The Hollow Bar + Kitchen on Albany’s North Pearl Street on Saturday, June 26, with tickets available on their website.
The Fifty Two
The Fifty Two’s single “Just Kids” opens with a bang, calling back to David Bowie’s “Heroes” before mellowing out for the opening verse. However, its choruses continue to explode in waves of nostalgia for memories past. This effect is fully intentional: the lyrics speak of “limousine speakers maxed out,” and the song evokes late-driving over a bridge with the windows down. The Fifty Two are a trio consisting of Jamie Medick, Jordan Medick and Ronnie Devernone.
