MegafaunaAlbumCoverOUT THIS WEEK

Boyfrndz, “Impulse” (Brutal Panda). The indie quartet’s third album features 10 new songs of hard-edged, psych-tinged rock produced by Jeff Ziegler, whose credits include Kurt Vile and War on Drugs. Release show Friday, May 27, at Sidewinder. Here’s the video for the track “Ghosted”:

Please Please Me, “Volume  2” EP. The electro-pop band describes this sequel as “the upside to the down ’n’ moody of our last EP.” Release show Thursday, May 26, at Empire. Here’s a video for the track “I Don’t Want to Talk About It”:
