Artist: Bass Lions “We Got Guts”
Album: Bass Lions
Bass Lions

Combining peculiar and evocative vocal runs with lively arrangements and soulful lyricism, this is a damn good tune.



Artist: The Rebel Light “Strangers”
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”
Fractures EP
“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”
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
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.
