• If you checked out the solo quasi-EP-release party from JACOB AUGUSTINE last weekend, you still didn't actually hear anything from the album — for lack of supporting musicians. The slightly experimental folk-rock EP, Bikini Island, is surprising and heartfelt, with deep lyrics and rich, beautiful melodies; it's available for pay-what-you-can on jacobaugustine.bandcamp.com. Catch the full-band version live at KahBang in early August.

• Seven years after their debut, melodic heavy-metal group NOBIS are finally gearing up to release their sophomore album, Confession. Nobis were highly appraised during their touring stint, so this post-break album should be a banger. The release party is 8 pm Saturday at Time Out in Brewer, and in addition to the requisite food/drink/gear, Nobis will be performing the entire album in full, track for track. Pre-ordering your $10 ticket also gets you a voucher to pick up your copy of the album at the show. Snag! Head to Bull Moose or xactrecords.com.
