Amber Ojeda’s sworn to secrecy about who won Platinum Hit, but she says she’ll pret-ty busy after the results are in.

Scribe Amidst the Lions will debut their EP The Lidless Kind on July 1 at the Casbah. “This one was completely recorded, produced, and mixed by the band at our own Controls for the Sun Studio,” says bandleader Kris Towne. “We’ll also do a digital package on flashdrive and DVD, with music videos, high quality audio waves, photos, lyrics, and behind-the-scenes video footage.”

Also on July 1, Astra Kelly releases her Timebomb EP at Soda Bar. “It’ll be the first time my band has included live keys on stage,” says Kelly, who recruited keyboardist Ryan Morse and string player Marta Blalock Zaludova (Transfer, Republic of Letters) to back her up. “I’ll also have my broken record artwork on display, made from vinyl-album remnants.” Endoxi, Gayle Skidmore, and Erika Davies are also on the bill. “I plan on getting all the musicians up to the stage with me for one surprising classic cover tune.”

Speaking of Erika Davies, her Galaxy Lakes album release happens July 17 at Habitat House, 1008 21st Street. “Attendees can expect a lounge-y gypsy-jazz instrumental opening set by Trio Gadjo, with whom I’ll unveil a new [non-album] tune,” says Davies. “Then, I’ll play with different band configurations for different set vibes.” The album was funded via Kickstarter.com donations totaling $2914.

Berkley Hart will play two release parties at Swedenborg Hall for their new full-length, Crow: July 8 (with pop duo the Lovebirds opening) and July 9 (with rock duo Bug Guts).

Dudes’ new EP Narcissists Anonymous drops July 31 from Grizzly Records. Midwinters are recording a new studio EP with Andy Peet. Nervous Wreckords mainman Brian Karscig is coproducing an album with Subsurfer. Megadeth is recording in San Marcos. Bitter Sober is tracking their first full-length album with Beth Ladwig of Elliotthedog Music. And all-girl teen trio Pink Army is working on an album with songwriter/producer Eddie Galan (Hannah Montana, High School Musical).

Former Veronica Mars cast member Amber Ojeda, currently a contestant on the Bravo TV talent contest Platinum Hit, wants to release her Space Bar Love album this summer. However, she tells the Reader, “I’m on hold right now from the TV show producers from publicizing the album.” The show finale has already been filmed, though the winner remains a secret until the final episode airs. “After that, I’ll have all kinds of things happening,” says Ojeda.
