Ali Barter

Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
Hello, I’m Doing My Best follows Barter’s 2017 debut LP A Suitable Girl.... A record that, by all accounts was critically and popularly acclaimed. Tone Deaf touted it as “an album that struck a nerve with Australia”, while Sydney Morning Herald backed her as a "star on the rise". Ali Barter, however, wasn't so sure. “The first record came out and for some reason I rejected it,” she says, listing the complaints she found with her own work: “it’s too polished and my voice is too high” being at the top of the list. Overcome with self-doubt, Barter pushed herself away from music, determined to never write another song. Hello I’m Doing My Best is a sentiment most can relate to, and therein lies the undeniable pull of Ali Barter’s output. From her breakout single ‘Girlie Bits’ to recent cut ‘Ur A Piece Of Shit’ Barter spins sobering honesty through sugary pop songs, like a one-two punch of staunch self assurance and touching vulnerability, in a way that is so uniquely her own. On her method, Barter explains “I really connect to the idea that you can say something really controversial, but if you say it in a nice way people are more likely to listen to it.” Read More

Altre di B

Bologna, ITALY
Soccer buffs, as suggested by the vintage name, since their debut in 2011 A...ltre di B (also known as Altre) has secured a place in the flourishing underground scene of their hometown Bologna, carrying around a lively and vigorous sound combined with interactive, multi-instrumental and choral live performances that brought them as well on international stages including SXSW, Sziget, Primavera Sound, and Europavox. By claiming the inventiveness of Arcade Fire and the energy of The Vines as the main sources of inspiration, Altre unveils its artistic appetites with surprisingly jubilant rock songs for an uninhibited music with a strong euphoric dimension. After numerous recording sessions collected in self-titled issues, Altre has released its first DIY record "There's a Million Better Bands" in 2011 and started a tour across Italy and Europe before the releases of "Sport" (2014, DIY) and "Miranda!" (2017, Black Candy Records) and six tours between North America and Canada. With the incorporation of synths and choirs, they now expanded their sound spectrum, mining a mix of post-punk, jangle and twee; their fourth album is coming out in 2020 (WWNBB). Read More

American Werewolf Academy

Dallas, TX
Anthemic, energetic, and efficient might be a few words to describe America...n Werewolf Academy's approach to rock & roll. It's a bit of punk and fuzzy pop that coalesce in catchy bite-sized songs. Their music is frantic, immediate, sometimes wildly erratic- like a cat spiraling through the air trying to land on its legs. Imagine Roky Erickson fronting Cheap Trick. AWA hail from Dallas, TX and over the course of 15 years evolved over five albums and into a fascinating exponent of honest, slightly crazy, high-energy rock. AWA are currently working on a new album with Matthew Barnhart (Bedhead, The New Year, The Gotobeds, Metz. Nots, Xetas, SuperChunk, Silkworm) at the moment for a 2020 release with USA Tour.

A. Sinclair

Austin, TX
Every song that Aaron Sinclair writes has a certain underlying feeling. SPI...N described it as "twitchy paranoia." Baeble Music sensed a "strung-out urgency" in his voice, while the Austin Chronicle called his music "tension-driven" with "tight, rough riffs and sharp post-punk lines." This is definitely apparent on A Sinclair's new single "Weeds" on December 20th, 2019. It's surprising then, that in person, Sinclair is a quiet guy - reserved, humble, and even-keeled. Not one for self-promotion, he often shies away from putting himself in the spotlight. As Paste put it, he "lets the music speak for itself." "Constant rejection, months on the road, lineup changes, various flirtations with some idea of 'success' - none of these things seem to affect his output as a songwriter," says bassist Brendan Bond, describing the motivation behind his bandleader's prolific creativity. "The guy is writing straight from the gut. He's such a great storyteller that sometimes you don't realize that he's actually distilling something straight out of his own life into the music. I always trust that he's got a vision that's artistically valid and true to what and who he is." Once he takes the stage Read More

Bethlehem Steel

Brooklyn, NY
Bethlehem Steel formed in 2012 out of a long-time friendship that singer/gu...itarist Rebecca Ryskalczyk, drummer Jonathan Gernhart and bassist Patrick Ronayne forged through nights spent at the Brooklyn DIY venue Shea Stadium. Taking stock of your experiences and your emotional health in solitude can be an empowering task, but enlisting the assistance of allies certainly never hurts, and Bethlehem Steel’s sophomore album is a testament to the value of togetherness in difficult times. Rebecca Ryskalczyk and Christina Puerto’s collaborative energy provide the animating force behind their self-titled sophomore album - a release that serves as guide, of sorts, for those reaching towards self-empowerment, and an illustration of the transformative power of female friendship as a force in overcoming trauma. Bethlehem Steel is the follow-up to Party Naked Forever - a 2017 release praised by outlets like NPR, The FADER and Stereogum, is an exhilarating listen, and with the transition from a trio to a four piece, it’s the sound of the band finding another gear as they change shape and mature as songwriters and musicians.

He was getting slots at SXSW, opening for an eclectic assortment of bands (...Jerry Paper, Girlpool, Surf Curse, and Homeshake, to name some), and gaining a cult following with his solid debut LP Control and subsequent singles. Suddenly, his world turned upside down. Tilden began experiencing random, unexplained seizures and spent more than a year with specialists experimenting with different powerful medications for his undiagnosed brain condition. Somehow he managed to keep touring and releasing music; most notably his stirring fan-favorite LP Dance Alone, a collection of danceable psych-pop created by a moody, distant, and frightened person during a turbulent time. Serious bouts of depression followed as he struggled with an assortment of medications and more seizures. In 2018, Tilden was finally diagnosed with an acute form of frontal lobe epilepsy, found the right daily regimen of pills, and has been seizure free ever since. Slowly, life became less of a daily crisis and more manageable. But the experience of friends alienated by his medically induced uncontrollable mood shifts and his isolation due to irrational fears took its toll. “I couldn’t write another uplifting or dreamy Read More

‘I’m told to go it alone and just forget / you can love the song but yo...u just can’t love the man’ “I was alone, unpacking boxes in the strange old craftsman I rented a room in during my divorce. Out of nowhere my computer turned on and started playing Townes Van Zandt’s ‘For the Sake of the Song’. I shivered. I melted. I picked up my guitar and wrote ‘If Not The Man’” Years later, in an "about damn time" kind of moment, Seattle based singer-songwriter Caitlin Sherman is stepping out solo. She’s had her fair share of collaborations over the years, most notably the cosmic psych rock of Evening Bell and the hazy noir of Slow Skate. As a songwriter and arranger in both projects, she also held the role of girlfriend and wife. Now she is neither.

Portland, OR
Casey Neill & The Norway Rats combine haunting reveries & high energy rave-...ups built around narrative songwriting. Neill tours with the band and solo throughout the USA, Japan, and Europe, having performed on NPR's Mountain Stage and at the Newport Folk Festival. The band is a murderer's row of Northwest music vets from The Decemberists, Viva Voce, and Eels. The new Casey Neill & The Norway Rats album Subterrene is a major leap forward that No Depression calls "a milestone in Neill and company's trajectory thus far" while Rolling Stone says "(Neill's) songs mask their complexities beneath a simple, singalong-worthy surface - these swimming waters have serious depth." Subterrene taps into creative wells where electronic elements weave in/out underneath cutting guitars. While not a traditional concept album, Subterrene follows a distinct story arc. The ominous-yet-defiantly-optimistic portraits it paints were inspired in equal parts by vintage sci-fi novels, our current political climate, and the globetrotting manner in which Neill's lived for the past few years. Casey is a frequent member of The Minus 5 along w/ Scott McCaughey & Peter Buck of R.E.M. (who both guest on Subterrene). Read More

Corridor

Montreal, CANADA
Corridor are a group from Montreal and their Sub Pop debut, Junior, was mad...e just yesterday. The rock'n'roll band had barely inked their record deal when they surfed into studio, racing against time to make the most dazzling, immediate and inventive album of their young career: 39 minutes of darting and dodging guitars, spiraling vocal harmonies, and the complicated, goldenrod nostalgia of a Sunday mid-afternoon. Even the artwork came in the nick of time: in spite of other, meticulous masterpieces, bandmate Jonathan Robert's "shitty last-minute collage" (of an egg saying hello) was the one his bandmates went for. That might be Corridor's best trick—their mixture of seriousness and whimsy. Sub Pop have never before, in their 33-year history, signed a Francophone act. Maybe the band's magic springs from their ingenious hooks, their topaz-tinted vision. Maybe it's the panache of Québec's insurgent underground scene, or the camaraderie between band members. Maybe it's their name—a hallway crossed with a toreador. Probably it's all of these, and none of them: Junior is a joy, a hasty miracle, because it's so much damn fun to listen to.

Darkbird

Austin, TX
I wanted to be here I wanted to behave But it's so hard tonight Lyrics to t...he first song Kelly and Brian would ever write together set the stage for the romantic waterloo that would become Darkbird. Kelly Barnes left Los Angeles after a broken marriage resulted in a broken band. Just prior to the move, she unexpectedly hit international success, singing a monster hit called, “Get Shaky” with DJ Ian Carey. While the track and a few others were financially significant to the ex-wife and waitress, the style of music was unfulfilling to Barnes. She began to dread performing the songs and eventually became fearfully depressed. After a tragic house fire in NYC, Brian Cole opted for a fresh start. As his belongings smoldered in the winter snow, he decided to pack up what was left and head south in search of warmer days and better luck. Ironically, while most go to LA or NYC to make their dreams come true, Brian and Kelly found each other on the musician page on Craigslist in Austin, TX. While they had hoped to leave their pasts behind, inevitably, the heartbreaks found a place they call home in Darkbird. Read More

David Dondero

Duluth, MN
In 2006, when NPR’s All Songs Considered called David Dondero one of the ...“best living songwriters” you would have thought that everything would have changed for him. But today, Dondero is, at best, uncomfortable with that badge. “That’s just one person’s opinion”, he says. He’s opened tours for Pedro the Lion, Against Me!, The Mountain Goats and Bright Eyes amongst many others. Dondero has been a journeyman to the craft of songwriting for the past 25 years but remains on the fringe of popular acceptance. Sure, it’s his comfort zone, but that fringe has taken him all over the world under the radar. From Serbia to San Diego, Tasmania to Toronto and almost every place in between. He’s made countless trips around America delivering a linear narrative of character-driven songs. He’s taken the long cut approach to the craft. The scenic route if you will. He’s a working class drifter who’s worked every shit job known to mankind, and the songs reflect it. The Filter Bubble Blues, Dondero’s 10th LP (released in January 2020) is a biting, wary, heartbroken and sometimes hilarious sendup of the dumpster fire that is modern American political theatre and identity politics.

Deadbeat Beat

Deadbeat Beat slowly took shape as the natural extension of a friendship be...gun in high school by drummer/vocalist Maria Nuccilli and guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Alex Glendening. Always at shows, hanging out, killing time and absorbing music, the two moved through early projects and various members coming and going before solidifying Deadbeat Beat with the inclusion of bassist Zak Frieling. Musically varied and lyrically congruous, How Far finds the band at their strongest voicing, one spawned from rough nights at shitty dive bars as the emotional foundations for soaring pop songs that nervously bump into one another. Largely a reflection on asserting and maintaining a queer identity in an almost completely straight crowd, Glendening’s songs hit at the gut level — either doused in syrup like the harmony-heavy “You Lift Me Up” or stretched into an anxious infinity like “Tree, Grass & Stone,” the album’s extended freak out jam that still feels like a confessional indie pop song.

Deau Eyes

Richmond, VA
Deau Eyes is Ali Thibodeau: Richmond, VA born and raised singer songwriter.... Ever since Thibodeau left high school early in her junior year, she has been working to support herself and her art. Lifelong dreams of a career in performance brought her to NYC, Florida, Idaho, and Virginia to work in theaters, theme parks, studios, classrooms, festivals, and cruise ships. It has only been in recent years that she has listened to her original inner voice and began to translate her experiences into her own music. Her debut album Let It Leave (5/8/2020, Egghunt Records) was recorded in Nashville, TN with longtime friends and co-producers Jacob Blizard and Collin Pastore, whose credits include Lucy Dacus and illuminati hotties, among others. The songs celebrate the joys and complications of a liminal life—balancing freedom and stability, falling in and out of love, and trusting yourself through the noise of other people’s expectations. Her live shows can be loud and punky or subdued and sweet, varying from song to song. It is clear that she puts her theater experience to good use; however, playing as Deau Eyes, Thibodeau is far from acting. When the floor is hers, she is disarmingly earnest. Read More

Disq

Madison, WI
Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange o...f sounds, experiences, memories, and influences. Due out March 6 on Saddle Creek, Collector ought to be taken literally—it is a place to explore and catalogue the Madison, Wisconsin band’s relationships to themselves, their pasts, and the world beyond the American Midwest as they careen from their teens into their 20s. This turbulence is backdropped by gnarled power pop, anxious post-punk, warm psych-folk, and hectic, formless, tongue-in-cheek indie rock. Produced by Rob Schnapf, Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America. The songs are marked by urgency, introspection, tongue-in-cheek nihilism, and a shrewd understanding of pop and rock structures and their corollaries—as well as a keen desire to dialogue with and upset them.

Divino Niño

Chicago, IL
Divino Niño’s new album 'Foam' feels like catching up with a lifelong fr...iend. There’s undeniable songwriting chemistry between guitarist Camilo Medina and bassist Javier Forero, who met as kids in Bogotá, Colombia and years later reconnected by sheer happenstance after their families had both moved to Miami. Both studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where they met guitarist Guillermo Rodriguez and eventually Drummer Pierce Codina. Now Chicagoans, their rhythmic, soulful - and at times bilingual - Latinx punk songs are a reflection of their continent-spanning bond and proof that Divino Niño couldn’t have formed without unlikely but happy coincidences. The ten tracks on 'Foam' feature wistfully romantic lyrics like the yearning plea on the title track (“I really wanna run away with you”), and sunny, honeyed arrangements. Songs like “Quiero” trade-off between English and Spanish with woozy guitars and harmonies anchoring the sweetness of the lyrics. The quartet’s Latin American roots seep in throughout the LP’s silky psychedelic flourishes. Read More

"This album comes out 20 years after our first one," guitarist John Hill sa...ys of Dressy Bessy's second Yep Roc Records release, Fast Faster Disaster. "20 years in and we're better than ever. Tammy's songwriting and performance are as vital as ever. She's the genuine article and one of the strongest, most talented women I know." "This is the most selfless record I've ever written," asserts frontwoman Tammy Ealom. "In the past, the bulk of my songwriting was inspired by something or someone who'd pissed me off. Writing a song about it made me feel like I was getting the last word, case closed in my mind. With this album, each song was written for someone or something I love." Fast Faster Disaster makes it clear that, two decades from the band's seminal D.I.Y. beginnings, Tammy Ealom's distinctive songcraft remains as sharp as ever. The Denver combo's second Yep Roc release, and their second since the seven-year recording hiatus that preceded 2016's KINGSIZED, Fast Faster Disaster's new songs affirm Tammy Ealom's career-long commitment to barbed lyrical insight and effortlessly catchy melodies.

Drew Citron

Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn indie-rock stalwart Drew Citron formed Beverly in 2013, after havi...ng got her start playing in Frankie Rose and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Over the course of Beverly’s two LPs (Kanine Records), Citron toured the world with big acts (the Drums, We Are Scientists). She and Beverly drummer, Scott Rosenthal (The Beets), would go on to open storied Bushwick music venue, Alphaville, and more recently embark on the highly regarded post-punk outfit, Public Practice. In all these collaborative endeavors, Citron has been developing, refining, and ultimately giving life to what is her latest project, the solo work. “Growing up in San Francisco, I used to take so many long melancholic walks listening to The Smiths on my Discman. That was a kind of prelude to the feeling I’m getting at with this album,” says Citron. “Most of the songs were written in Northern California, camped out on the coast recalling much of how it felt to be sixteen and in love with a record.” With "Free Now," Citron, one of the most beautiful voices in Indie Rock, comes to the table with a whole lot of pain to sing about and the full musical knowledge to put herself, and her talents, front and center.

Dry Cleaning

London, UK-ENGLAND
Firm friends for years, Dry Cleaning (Lewis Maynard, Tom Dowse, Florence Sh...aw & Nick Buxton) only started making music after a karaoke party in 2017 inspired a collaboration. They wrote instrumentally to begin with and six months later Shaw, a university lecturer and picture researcher by day, joined on vocals with no prior musical experience. They recorded the six-track Sweet Princess EP before playing their first show only last year. When they started they knew they wanted to make simple music, direct and uncomplicated. The musical influences were clear - the Feelies, the Necessaries, the B52s and Pylon as a starting point. The garage / rehearsal space had a huge influence on the sound as it was so small and intimate; anything unnecessary was to be left behind. A discussion among the four band members about how to make the prospect of performing as comfortable as possible for Florence (a first timer) ahead of the band’s first rehearsal as a four piece, led to her using her speaking voice. There were several references for this; Will Powers, The Anaemic Boyfriends and Grace Jones among others.

Ezra Furman

Chicago, IL
“That teenage thing, of not being able to talk about your secret inner li...fe, is the reason I’m a songwriter and musician,” Ezra Furman declares. “Sometimes you need the music to fully convey what can’t be said in everyday conversation.” When the makers of the hit Netflix series Sex Education told Ezra Furman, “We want you to be the Simon & Garfunkel to our The Graduate", they clearly recognised a kindred spirit. Who better to articulate all that awkwardness and alienation than Furman? The new Sex Education soundtrack gathers the original songs that Furman composed for the first series and the brand new second series, whilst adding tracks featured on the show that can be found on prior Furman albums such as Perpetual Motion People and Transangelic Exodus. Lining up alongside older cover versions of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘ I Can Change’ and Melanie’s ‘The Good Book’ is a new rendition of ‘Devil Or Angel’, The Clovers’ doo-wop jewel from 1956. It all adds up to a bumper 19-track set of Furman’s trademark enthusiastic emotional catharsis. Read More

Fenne Lily

Bristol, UK-ENGLAND
In a time of over-production and over complication, Fenne Lily brings a raw...ness and open honesty to the equation which is both refreshing and compelling in equal measure. Fenne wrote and recorded the material that would form her debut album ‘On Hold’ between the ages of 15 and 20, while touring the continent with and lending her dulcet tones to the releases of rising alt-stars such as Aldous Harding, Charlie Cunningham, and Marlon Williams. Leaving school to spend her formative teenage years on the road, Fenne walked an uncertain path, playing truant from art college to immerse herself in a life of self-taught musicianship. The result is a tapestry of heartache and comprehension, realised in record form with the help of friend and musical ally Tamu Massif, members of Champs and legendary producer John Parish. The latter helped add permanence to ‘Brother’, a song written in a drunken black-out and nearly lost to the ether, devoted to the one boy who’s never let her down. This intimacy in the album has resonated strongly with the global online community and has received over 100 million streams, despite being self-released. Read More

A post-punk noise/pop band from NYC formed in 1986, Flower was a staple of ...the NYC underground scene carved out by Sonic Youth, Live Skull, and Swans, utilizing the noise element of the aforementioned artists to deepen the textures of more classically oriented pop/rock songs. They disbanded in 1990, leaving one EP and two albums to be remembered by. Members Richard (Guitar, Vocals) and Ed Baluyut (guitar) soon formed indie legends Versus, while Ian James (Bass, Vocals) joined Geffen flame-out Cell, and Andrew Bordwin (Drums) helped found Ruby Falls. Ian and Andrew would later team up to form the pop/punk band French. Having not written together for three decades and having played less than a handful of reunion shows, Flower recently reunited, locked themselves in a room, and did not emerge until more than an album’s worth of new material had been written.

Fran

Chicago, IL
The trick is to make a confession entertaining. A Private Picture, the debu...t album by Chicago’s Fran, delivers a collection of extremely personal experiences that have been distilled and abstracted to the point that you can see yourself in their imagery, find analogs to your own emotional history in their scenarios –when you hear them, it’s a conversation. It’s therapy, if therapy was allowed to turn you on and make you shake what you got. At its core, Fran’s music is about sharing a truth -–telling it, confessing it, yelling it—in the service of human connection. Or, as Jacobson puts it, “I feel that I am a songwriter for the same reason I wanted to be an actor. I want to tell the truth. I want to challenge myself to get closer and closer to the core of an experience, an emotion- I want to say it, sing it, in a way that says exactly what it is. I cry when I write songs because I am constantly making discoveries, about myself, about the world, about the best way to convey and connect and get closer.” Read More

Frontier Folk Nebraska

Cincinnati, OH
With FFN's latest album they've penned a love letter to their awkward teena...ge selves and their listeners alike. Set on the streets of their hometown, inside basements, second hand cars, roller rinks, and most certainly in the longing minds of the people they remain, Freaks is a psychedelic journey through a gloriously misspent adolescence. All of the best aspects of FFN have been packed into this beautiful package. Big rhythms, bigger guitars, singalong choruses, and storytelling that sets the listener firmly inside the people and places populating this record, all the while helping that same listener feel that this story is also their own. Recorded in Point Pleasant, WV and in their home base of Covington, KY, Freaks is a concept record in both the same ways as The Wall, or The Ramones. Overarching stories and characters; unifying righteous riffs. Fresh off another year of touring the midwest, south, and east coasts with festival appearances at SXSW, Rhythm Brew, and Whispering Beard, and tastemaker appearances at places like Leesta Vall Studios in Brooklyn, FFN has shared stages with Damien Jurado, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Spiderbags, Herzog, and many many more.

Gold Dime

Brooklyn, NY
Gold Dime is an unapologetic art rock band. It is the brainchild of Andrya ...Ambro, best known as one half of the noise rock duo Talk Normal. Raw but composed, Gold Dime alternates between abrasive to sensual to dreamlike, often in the course of one song. Live, Ambro anchors Gold Dime on drums & lead vocals. Every beat is a beckoning to actively listen; & her confident voice no less a beckoning. 2017 brought the release of their debut full-length Nerves which Bandcamp described as “a gutsy, dense, fascinating work." While previous iterations of the band featured a revolving door of collaborators, their sophomore album My House sees a more collective effort with Ian Douglas-Moore on bass & John Bohannon (Ancient Ocean || J.R. Bohannon) on guitar. Released in 2019 on Fire Talk, My House showcases the wildly dynamic sound with which the new trio now plays. Post-Punk called My House, “a psychedelic reverie conjuring the unsettling vision of peering into the cracked window of a haunted house where Diamanda Galás can be seen fronting CAN." Performing live since 2014, Gold Dime has opened for the likes of Lower Dens, U.S. Girls, EMA, Rainer Maria, Bush Tetras, Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu. Read More

Good Dog Nigel

Lynchburg, VA
Good Dog Nigel is the stage name of Parker Emeigh. At 10, Parker would dres...s up when his mom took him on errands around Lynchburg, Virginia. In highschool, he would dress as wildly as possible, selecting clothes from his trunk of costumes “just to entertain myself and the kids around me.” At 20, with a strong feeling of not fitting in, he dropped out of college supported by a mixture of his parents’ radical optimism and the thought that you can truly do whatever you want, which it turned out for Parker, was to entertain. If school and the people who attended it didn’t make sense to Parker, when he picked up a guitar and started writing songs as Good Dog Nigel, he had found his vehicle. Parker writes with a purpose of overarching optimism, a desire to reach for the small gems in life and how to help others find and relish them too. One thing we can all learn from Parker Emeigh of Good Dog Nigel, a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, is that “life is too precious to not do what makes you and others happy.” His music is there for all of us striving for that ideal.

Good Morning is the recording project of Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons. An ...experiment in blurring the lines that circle guitar pop, Good Morning are at once scrappy and melodic, cynical and silly, narrative and abstract: guitar music that’s distinctly contemporary and never self-serious. Good Morning formed in 2013 when Blair and Parsons bought themselves a 4-track, and  now have three albums and two EPs to their name. The band have consistently proven live favourites in their hometown, packing out headline shows, as well as recently completing their first ever headline tour of the USA, selling out shows in NYC and LA. Slightly belying their decidedly no-frills approach to recording and playing live, the band were heavily sampled on A$AP Rocky's "Kids Turned Out Fine", maybe the result of Instagram shoutouts from Tyler The Creator and members of The Internet. Their early EPs Shawcross and Glory defined the band's initial lo-fi, lazy and laconic sound, and have amassed over 36 million streams on Spotify alone.  Read More

Japanese Breakfast

New York, NY
When the album written to memorialize your mother becomes your calling card..., where do you turn for your second act? For Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner, it involved diving deeper into herself to evolve as an artist. With the release of her sophomore album Soft Sounds From Another Planet, Zauner expanded the breadth of the shimmering bedroom pop displayed on her debut Psychopomp. Her voice & vision came clearer into focus as she used the extended metaphor of outer space to observe the pain that defined the first part of her career. Between tours, studio sessions, and video shoots, Zauner has long been working on a memoir of her early childhood, time spent between the U.S. and South Korea, and the split heritage that has shaped so much of her life. An excerpt from that book, “Crying in H-Mart,” was published in The New Yorker at the end of 2018. A reflection on grief and a tribute to both biracial and immigrant families, Zauner’s essay is full of beautifully rendered, heartbreaking detail. The full book, also titled Crying in H-Mart, will be released via Knopf. Read More

Los Angeles, CA
John Vincent III, 24-year-old alternative artist, takes inspiration from th...e likes of Bon Iver, The Districts, and The Doors. After visiting Los Angeles in the Spring of 2016, his sights were set on serious music achievement. After completely leaving his life back home in Houston, John prepared for the intense industry in front of him. Somewhere along the line of continuous production, a fire was lit under this newly aspiring artist. Since then, John has independently written and produced several singles, EPs, and albums — while doing so, he was able to collaborate on his track “Back To My Ways" with Austin Texas's Aaron Zachary.

Justus Proffit

Los Angeles, CA
Following Justus Proffit's previous solo EPS- Ups/ Downs & Magic, and his e...ven more recent Collaborative EP with artist Jay Som; "Nothing's Changed", Justus Proffit’s first full length album, "LA’s Got Me Down" is informed by Los Angeles- and is painted with the city’s qualities- varying in tone from grim and passionate (as in the track Shadow of the Cross) to reflective and dreamy. (track Painted in the Sound). “LA’s got me down” is gritty, but deeply sensitive; obscure and echoey at times, and also consistently groovey. Throughout the album Proffit touches on deeply personal subjects that, via his EP’s, seem to be recurrent for him- revenge and loss being two major themes. However, while Proffit’s premiere album is certainly reminiscent; it is not nostalgic. “Los Angeles got me down” is an album inspired by familiar sounds and feelings, but ultimately exists as an entirely new sound that stands on its own.

Kiwi Jr.

Toronto, CANADA
Toronto’s KIWI JR presents Football Money: A product of two years of labo...r, and a monument to the work-life balance. The album was recorded by nightfall in dormant studios, with friends and enemies drafted as backup singers and engineers. Football Money untidily fuses the yin of work with the yang of life, chronicling a dual-existence, unkempt instrumentalists moonlighting as undercompensated administrators by the harsh fluorescent light of day, borne back ceaselessly into the Greater Toronto Area by night. Built from the clay of the day-to-day, Kiwi Jr. conjure what we think about when we think about Patricia Highsmith paperbacks, Peel Session Comps, and pitchers of cheap domestic: Football Money is a laser cold hit.

Kyle Emerson

Denver, CO
Kyle Emerson, the buzzy-indie rocker who splits his time in Denver and LA, ...released his sophomore album Only Coming Down on November 1st, 2019 on Brooklyn indie-label Swoon City Music. Met with critical acclaim from the likes of from Earmilk, 303 Magazine, Westword, and more, Only Coming Down puts the singer/songwriter’s skills on display. Only Coming Down succeeds Kyle Emerson’s first solo-album, Dorothy Alice, which was released in 2017 after the break-up of his LA-based band Plum. Drawing inspiration from life experiences – death of a family member, shifting his focus from Plum to a solo-career, moving from LA to Denver and back – and musically by the soundtrack of classic rock that filled his childhood -- Only Coming Down illustrates how Emerson’s solo releases have deftly expanded his garage-pop sensibilities with lush full-band arrangements and plenty of toothsome melodic hooks. At turns dreamy and driving, Only Coming Down bridges classic and contemporary sounds to create a warm, inviting, and introspective atmosphere. A pulsing, radiant optimism and empathy and the battle between heavy and light are found throughout Emerson’s sophomore effort. Read More

Land of Talk

Montreal, CANADA
Formed in Montreal under the leading hand of Elizabeth Powell, Land of Talk... was discovered around the turn of the 2010’s with the debut album Some Are Lakes (2008). Even with many lineup changes over the years, the band always maintained the quality of a well assumed indie pop, a sound especially marked on the sophomore album Cloak and Cipher (2010). After a several years hiatus, a necessary step for Powell to rediscover her artistic self, the singer-songwriter whose heart balance between Montreal and her Ontario hometown, made a timid return to music, playing shows, and then reinforced with the album Life After Youth (2017). With a ferocious energy balanced between vulnerability and resilience, Land of Talk will be back with brand new album Indistinct Conversations, out on May 15th, 2020, produced alongside friends and collaborators Mark “Bucky” Wheaton (drums and keyboards) and Christopher McCarron (bass).
