New Lunacy EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Despite one’s best efforts, everything isn’t always bright and bubbly; in contrast, it can be quite the opposite. Rather than avoiding the chaotic darkness, Lunacy's new EP, Disposition, invites you to steer directly into it. Released via Black Verb Records, Mental Healing and Funeral Party Records, the release engulfs the listener in a cloud of ominous, futuristic ambience. Succumb to the swirling haunt of uncertainty.





Mothica plays Elsewhere on 01.28

We've been keeping an eye (and a couple of ears) on Mothica for a few years now, and the NYC (via Oklahmoa City) electronic artist has been able to confirm her talent also in 2017, with a new EP that takes her soulful synthpop in edgier directions. She has also been keeping a regular live show schedule, something many "web famous" electronic artists aren't able to pull off. Music fans will have a chance to see her live at Elsewhere on January 28th.





New Music Video: "Necklace Stone" - The Retinas

The power trio of The Retinas recently shared a new song, “Necklace Stone”, which was recorded & mixed by Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, The Districts), to close out the year. Levelheaded vocals create a sense of calm, swaying seas, counterbalanced by the choppy grit of pace-establishing backend and escalating guitar. That steady build reaches unexpected heights in short order. Its sock-puppet video (with accompanying feline) playfully circles the globe.





I, Alexander's "Sturdy Thoughts" is sweetly mysterious

Eyes wide open and hands in the air, I, Alexander brings back some of the best parts of numerous Justin Vernon projects in his new song and music video "Sturdy Thoughts." You can hear the Bon Iver and Volcano Choir influences right off the bat, in the sweet, tender vocals and lucid, folksy acoustic guitars. But unexpectedly and impressively, orchestral textures meander in, lifting the song into exquisitely stunning territory. A beautiful string and flute arrangement weaves through the song, helped by a gentle piano. The video itself is mystifying, with a haunting silhouette of the artist projected on top of leaves and sparks flying. I, Alexander's self-titled debut is out January 12th on Susan Records. -Geena Kloeppel





Lawrence, Raycee Jones and Scruffy Pearls headline NYE party at Rockwood

Rockwood Music Hall is one of the best places in NYC where you can enjoy what we call "the unpretentious musical genres." The three-room venue specializes in folk, soul, Americana, pop songwriters and rock with a classic/southern flavor. The majority of acts they book is local. Their two New Year's Eve line-ups are a perfect reflection of this, featuring soul pop collective Lawrence as a headliner for the (sold out) night on Stage 2, with pop-soul songwriter Raycee Jones and upbeat pop band Scruffy Pearls (pictured). The smaller Room 1 will host performances by a series of emerging local artists, mostly local. We put them all in the playlist below, check it out!
