Daisy the Great shares quiet single "famous" + plays string of shows in NYC

It can be easy to overlook music that gets released during the glut of year-end lists pushed out around the holidays. This is especially true for music that appears as small and unassuming as that of Daisy the Great. However, their newest single “famous” definitely deserves reexamination. Combining twee aesthetics and simple vocal harmonies, the duo packs quaint imagery into a haunting track. Ugly sweaters, gumboil rings and fitting into new shoes all act as a disarmer before the hook asks what the point of life is if there’s no possibility of fame. There’s no denying this is a straightforward presentation, with plucky guitars gently strumming along, yet it’s the clash between the hartfelt folksy delivery and the mundane topic that fills the latter with a deeper existential meaning. Daisy the Giant celebrated their album release party at Baby’s All Right on Jan. 26 and will go on to play several dates in the NYC area between February and March. -Tucker Pennington

Teulu

Teulu’s music is a soft place to lay your head at night. It’s quietly but powerfully hopeful, the sort of music we need to get by in today’s world. “For The Learner” has a damp, earthy feel to it. It’s similar to the sensation of digging your fingers through damp grass, or the taste of a sweet, yet tannic tea. The soft, lilting tones take you gently by the hand and lead you into the best scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Each song infuses the listener with the gentle gray skies we wake up to most days. It's hard to capture the beauty of sunshine melting into cloudy skies, but Teulu does a wonderful job.

Foreign Air releases "Used to You" + tours the US

Operating in the intersection between New Wave, EDM, and soul music, Brooklyn via Washington DC Foreign Air have forged a recognizable and original style, while releasing a series of incredibly catchy songs. First single Free Animal put them on the right path, but the solid 2016 EP For the Light already included another noteworthy track (In the Shadows), which climbed the digital charts and helped keep the name "hot." After that initial burst, the band has managed to keep their fans' attention alive through the constant release of several other quality singles. Their latest, entitled "Used to You" (streaming below), is a glo-fi mid-tempo that flirts with trip hop and Moby's looped soul samples. The duo just announced a month-long North American tour that will take them to Austin during SXSW and back to Baby's All Right on April 9th.
