Yohuna prepares new album, play Elsewhere on 5/23

The vision of singer/songwriter Johanne Swanson (who performs as Yohuna) takes the introspection often found in personal songs and reflects it on both elements of nature and the personal relationships inspiring it. Her latest album “Mirroring” is set for release on June 7, with two songs now available for preview. Moving away from a previous reliance on synthesizers, Yohuna relies here more on guitars as the predominant instrumental force. The title track floats along pitch-bended chords rivaling the best of any dreamgaze practitioner. Ethereal, almost aloof vocals deliver poetic three word lines on the verses before a call and response chorus reveals the song's cascading vocals hook. Easy laid back drumming gives way to a 16th-note high-hat pattern, adding rhythmic motion at points within the overall dreamy feel. “Rain & Prairie Snow” opts for a cleaner guitar sound while adding simple, reverant keyboards allowing for more emphasis on a choral vocal sound (enhanced by long-time collaborator Emily Yacina). Yohuna's May tour arrives at Elsewhere in Brooklyn on 5/23. - Dave Cromwell





New The Dove & The Wolf LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Dove & The Wolf just released their first full-length record, Conversations, via Tone Tree Music. Led by Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat, intertwined harmonies radiate in a soothing yet emotive manner. The delicate, crisp instrumental accompaniment perfectly complements the group's exquisite, wandering, daydream vocals. You can catch The Dove & The Wolf's record release show at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday, May 25, where they'll be supported by Shamir and Michelle Blades. (Photo by Marcus Maddox)





New Empath Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Active Listening: Night on Earth, the full-length debut from the quartet of Empath, is now available via Get Better Records. Merging shimmering melodies with stormy, noise-effected discord, the band finds a catchy, chaotic balance. Groundswells of rhythm are countered by ethereal synth as the contrast of feathery-ferocity grabs one’s focus with an intriguing intensity. Get lost in its unpredictability.

LVL UP's Mike Caridi debuts solo project The Glow with two new singles.

You may know Mike Caridi from his previous band LVL UP. If you enjoyed the indie rock group (which dissolved last September), you might want to look into his solo project The Glow. In between LVL UP albums, Caridi was writing songs that drew life from the same lo-fi vein that was supplying his former group. Now his songs are finally seeing the light of day: the first two singles are out now and they shine brightly on their own. “Weight of Sun” has a snappy rhythm and bright acoustic guitars that give it an upbeat nature. “I Am Not Warm” is driven by Caridi’s deeply-layered vocals, a distorted lead guitar, and dense drums. The hazy feel of the tracks, along with their grungy edge make Caridi New York’s answer to L.A.’s rising lo-fi star Justus Proffit. Check out “I Am Not Warm” below. - Rene Cobar 





New Track: "On The Range" - Moor Mother & Zonal

Moor Mother & Zonal combined forces for the 37th chapter in the Adult Swim Singles series. Honing in via static system, a quaking beat spawns an ominous urgency in “On The Range”. As noise consumes on the periphery, an internal fire maintains and propels one's focus. Climb over the obstacles and individuals that lie along your path, and prosper.
