New Music From The Inbox – Monday Edition! (Mar 23, 2020): S+C+A+R+R, Purity Ring, Ruby Waters, and more!

Sincerest apologies for the abbreviated descriptions this week. There’s, uh…kind of a lot going on in the world right now. I usually do my best to appropriately represent the hard work these artists put into their songs, and while I don’t feel I have the capacity this week to match that usual effort I still feel like it’s worth sharing the great songs rather than not giving them the spotlight at all.

Artist: S+C+A+R+R

Song: “The Rest of My Days”

Album/EP: Single

Nimble. Groovy. Unpredictable. Keeps you on your toes, which is appreciated.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Purity Ring

Song: “pink lightning”

Album/EP: Single

It’s the little details that really draw you into this one. Kind of sounds like a boombox in space.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Ruby Waters

Song: “Rabbit Hole”

Album/EP: Single

Hearty vocals sit on top of a ruddy, catchy chorus. Really latches onto you.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Ellie Moon

Song: “Promise It Won’t Be Boring”

Album/EP: Single

Light and airy pop, supporting breezy and capturing vocals.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Jealous of the Birds

Song: “Ode To Fire”

Album/EP: Single

Dreamy and enrapturing. Warm and enveloping. A comforting tune to fall asleep to.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Oh Land

Song: “I Miss One Week Ago”

Album/EP: Single

Timely, but without being too on-the-nose. Can apply to any earth-shattering situation, really. This coronavirus stuff kinda sucks.

Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
