Artist: The Rebel Light “Strangers”
Album:
Single
The Rebel Light
“Strangers” is the latest from Los Angeles based indie pop outfit The Rebel Light and it’s a solid radio-ready pop tune with hazy lust filled lyrics. Can’t get enough of this song right now.

Artist: Fractures “It’s Alright”
Album:
Fractures EP
fractures
“It’s Alright” is the latest release from Australian multi-instrumentalist & producer Fractures. Merging languorous, multi-tracked vocals with a short film exploring the Ukrainian ghost town Pripyat, abandoned since the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, there is both a stillness and depth to this song that is incredibly moving.

Artist: Las Venus Skyway “The Appearances of Day To Day Living”
Album:
Single
Las Venus Skyway
Las Venus Skyway is the latest musical offering from M.P.G’s Evan Sue-Ping. An intensely personal and electronic leaning solo endeavor, the project has been in the works for more than ten years. When Sue-Ping’s brother passed from kidney failure last fall, “The Appearances of Day To Day Living” emerged as a way to set the weight of watching his life come to a close to a telling and cinematic soundscape.

Artist: Mark Martyre “Find My Way Home
Album:
Red Letters
Mark Martre

There is something incredibly homey about Mark Martyre that centers itself upon the wryness in his voice and the longing in his words.
