New Mike Quinn EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Mike Quinn (Purples, Needle Points) has released a new EP Through Love. The record has a relaxed, rock-folk vibe, while still threading bits of raunchy riffs, incorporating biting texture into these eased off tunes. You’ll find yourself humming along to the twang of the melody, and you can expect a few curves along the path.





Gabriel Kahane lands (long!) Rockwood Music Hall residency

While singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane certainly does possess strong vocal chops, the core strength of his music comes from the "songwriting" half of his genre label. Kahane is a dexterous and thoughtful composer, balancing out the pronounced folkiness of his accoustic guitar parts with classic string or piano accompaniments on tracks like "Veda (1 Pierce Dr.)." He's also not afraid to "plug in" and rock out either (like in "Calabash & Catamaran") proving his versatility as an artist to perform a range of styles and capture a wide breadth of emotions. He even did a cover of a song from "Oklahoma" the musical for goodness' sake! On top of that, the strong Elliot Smith vibes in Kahane's music add an extra aura of melancholy, and if Rockwood booked him for a residency it means he's as good llive as he sounds on record. You can catch him next Rockwood's Stage 2 on 8/28, and then again and again until 10/23! — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, Photo Credit: Rebecca Deane





New Track: "Refugees" - Sea Span

“Refugees,” the latest from Sea Span, a.k.a. North Carolina transplant James Benjamin, balances a soft-spoken delicate nature with a subtly hypnotic groove. Lyrically, the song appears to speak toward the concept of embracing refugees caught in very difficult situations. It's delivering an eye-opening serious message, placed on a danceable backdrop.

Steady Holiday performs at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concerts

After many years of collaboration, Dre Babinski shines steadily in her own light as Steady Holiday, starting her dream pop foray with debut album Under the Influence. Poignant, personal and touching, Babinski’s lyrics are buried under infectious melodies, but become uncovered after a few listens. Words like, “it’s a lonely world, I don’t want to be hurt” ("Under the Influence") and “We’re not alone/ You and I have our demons we can’t control” ("Overcast Waltz") resonate with a solo artist’s apprehension. Having performed at the prominent Coachella Festival, Steady Holiday performs again for all, free on September 1 at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concert Series with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. - Kaitlyn Tang
