Artist: Saidah Baba Talibah “High”
“High” delves into a kind of fleshy rawness reserved for skinned knees. It’s exposed, it throbs, and it longs for relief.
Sounds like: Jonsing
Artist: Lower “Another Life”
Lower have the same brash intensity that was synonymous with 80’s punk, but they pair it with booming drums and moody, melodic guitars.
Sounds like: Check out Lower during NXNE 2013 Sunday, June 16th @ The Garrison, 11 pm.
Artist: SIRSY “Lionheart”
Album: Coming Into Fame
The “go ahead I dare you” attitude of this song is undeniable.

Artist: Caged Animals “Cindy + Me”
Album: Eat Their Own
“Cindy + Me” is a quirky and tempered tale about the kind of shit you’ll do for love. Plus the video features baboons and the lyrics are really well written.
Sounds like: An acquired taste, but give this one a chance!
Artist: City Society “Speaking of You”
City Society is a blend of classical musicianship, poignant vocals, and dreamy electronic beats.
Sounds like: Everything in slow motion.
