track premiere


You’d do well to get on board with Brooklyn trio Endearments at this early stage of their career. They tapped Abe Seiferth to mix the song we’re premiering today. He’s worked with Nation of Language so knows a thing or two about the up-and-comers when it comes to Brooklyn synth-pop. ‘Too Late’ is the band’s …

Oh boy, this is good. Say hello to Parris Mitchell; he’s from New York, and he’s got form. Not only did he release a self-titled debut EP last year, he opened his 2022 account with the vibrant ‘Super Power’ in February. At the time, he hinted there was more where that came from, and while …

You may be familiar with Chicago native Mike Tafoya – he’s certainly been around the block a bit, an active musician for more than three decades with Tafoya’s Lost Boyzz among others; certainly what you’d call a rock lifer, and he’s nowhere near done. Quite the opposite, in fact: he’s moved on to the next …

As introductions go, this is pretty special: no room for clutter, richly melodic, teetering on the verge of explosion to leave the listener wanting more. More is exactly what you’ll get in a few months, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Say hello to A.M. Boys. They’ve been together 8 years and their second album …

Sometimes, the true test of an artist’s abilities is when they have to prove themselves as a performer, and we’re of the opinion that New Jersey’s Jewels Gold has got what it takes. Evidently, so does she: Gold sat on her debut EP for close to a year until shooting live videos for the whole …

As Paul McCartney once sang, some people want to fill the world with silly love songs. California native Andy Frasco is not that kind of person. At least, he isn’t anymore. Two years of collective pandemic-induced trauma changes people, and reconnecting with oneself takes time. The title of his new album calls to mind the …

No messing around here: Berlin trio ERRORR‘s new song is a beast. If fired-up noise rock is your thing, you should keep an eye on this lot. The first song to be taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Sixxx’ is built around a needling riff that gives the listener about eight seconds to brace …

Who wants to hear a cheerful song about mortality? Northern California export Cooper Kenward has got one for you if you’re a big fan of stark contrast between sound and subject matter. His debut single gets an assist from touring members of Hand Habits, Vetiver, Bedouine and more. It’s a sweetly melodic indie-folk song with …

She closed 2021 with the original version of this song and we’ve gotta say, the rework is just as good, if not better. If MuMu – the New York-based Madeline Rhodes – is new to you, listen to this and then go seek out her other stuff immediately. A sultry acoustic spin on the track …

He’s been part of the New York performance art noise scene for over 15 years, and the weird and wonderful go hand in hand on the forthcoming debut solo album from Rob Erickson, also known as LUMBEROB. The reference points for the 22-track collection range from Captain Beefheart to Dan Deacon via Deerhoof, which is …
