Emily Edrosa is hanging in there in new single "Wade Thru"

Emily Edrosa is getting through a seemingly endless year via the throbbing beat and sharpened guitar riffs of her new indie rock single “Wade Thru.” Channeling the very best of Los Angeles’ ever-present garage rock scene, Edrosa vents feelings of longing for someone or something familiar. “Wade Thru” may be short, but its point is not dull: we all feel like we are getting through, not gracefully, but with lots of resilience, and the single embraces that. “Wade Thru” announces the rocker’s upcoming album Another Wave Is Coming Out out November 20th. Stream “Wade Thru” below and keep on moving forward. - René Cobar

 





Rhye lets love win in new single "Helpless"

California may be filled with the smog and fumes of a state—and world—on fire, but there is always room for soulful appreciation of loved ones and devotion to better times. Rhye debuts a velvety R&B single titled “Helpless” that pays tribute to that devotion, and within the track’s groove exists all of it. Rhye uses his fine falsettos to evoke a positive outlook driven by the intimacy he shares with his partner Genevieve Medow-Jenkins who also directed the music video streaming below. Rhye offers us a song and theme that are both long-lasting and cooling, reminding us that falling in love is still a cure sought after and that its best delivery method is music. Stream “Helpless” below for music soothing enough to inspire a better outlook. - René Cobar, photo by Emma Marie Jenkinson





Joni recalls glowing memories in new single "Orange"

Joni Fatora, or simply, Joni offers us a world filled with luminescent memories that peek through a haze of upbeat indie folk in her new single “Orange.” Using elements of synth-pop and folk, Joni recalls her days living in New York City, or rather the feeling those days evoked, how the light of those times glows within her still. “Orange” is the perfect track for nostalgic nights and daydream-filled mornings: the subtle electric guitars, sustained synths, and dreamy vocals of Joni all move like waves to a rhythm sharp and penetrating. The dramatic shift in direction that “Orange” takes during its midsection is as memories that come to life: one day, we remember them one way, and the other another, but all the same, they remain beautiful. Stream Joni’s “Orange” below for something worth remembering. - René Cobar





Raye Zaragoza calls for unity in new music video for "They Say"

Now residing in Long Beach, California, Raye Zaragoza is spreading her sonic wings and taking flight. The new music video for her latest single “They Say” is a beautiful tribute to folk music’s power of unity that is evermore needed during these divisive times, and that through sharp harmonica leads and a rich vocal delivery is easy to understand. Zaragoza, Indigenous on her father’s side and a first-generation Japanese-American on her mother’s, rejects any type of segregation in music and pushes for an inclusive world via a song that embraces and rejects politics at the same time; the music can exist calmly in all hearts, inspiring reflection. The music video filmed with director Matthew Freiheit in Los Angeles on March 17 (a day after the city’s lockdowns took effect) is a walk through a cityscape bare of bodies but not of souls yearning for a better tomorrow. Stream the new music video for “They Say” below for something heartwarming and real. - René Cobar, photo by Caleb James





Vita and the Woolf is home at last in new record "Anna Ohio"

Jennifer Pague has found a cozy home in L.A. for her synth-pop project Vita and the Woolf, her new album Anna Ohio chronicling just that mixture of emotions seemingly arising and consuming the city like pastel blue smog. Each track in the new record has a distinct character to it: where a song like “Paris” uses swelling synths and string instruments to dream up fantastic voyages, “Confetti” lets crisp-clean electric guitar leads accompany Pague’s on-target vocals for a song with hints of nostalgia and acceptance. Such emotions are followed up and further explored in  fierce songs like “Home.” Strong beat-driven songs like “Feet” ooze Pague’s confidence as synth flourishes gush flowing colors from the track. You also get songs like “Auntie Anne’s Waitress,” which are light in theme but full and exquisite in composition. Anna Ohio is a story of new and old surroundings, big dreams, and a new rosy way to look at them both; stream “Home” below for a taste of the adventure and the memories. - René Cobar, photo by Erica Snyder
