Dani Jean-Baptiste " Lustdisgust"

The immensely talented multi-instrumentalist Dani Jean-Baptiste quietly released her debut album, Lustdigust, in the world over the weekend.

For this project she enlist the help of a handful of talented local musicians including Max Subar, Sam Kurzydio, Jack Callahan, Jason Ashworth, and Henry Mosher.

The album is beautifully raw and intimate while remaining fun and playful. The sound is primarily based in Folk or Americana, but is primarily a gentle soundtrack for Dani’s powerful vocals and honest storytelling.





Amory Sivertson returns to tell her story in new single "Walk in the Woods"

Amory Sivertson’s music draws you in with its soothing elements: bright and supple piano arpeggios at its foundation, uplifting harmonies that dance about, and Amory’s acrobatic lead vocals glowing throughout. The Boston-based singer-songwriter’s latest single “Walk in the Woods” confidently displays all of Sivertson’s strengths as it builds to a grandiose finale that is as cathartic as it is mesmerizing. Amory blends elements of folk and pop music with a distinct class that elevates her sound and gifts listeners luxurious compositions. The artist had been away for some time, with “Walk in the Woods” her first release in eight years, and is now back to tell her journey—the new song a precious fragment of that. We are looking forward to new songs by Amory; in the meantime, we are streaming her new track below. - Rene Cobar





10.11: Blonde Redhead's Kazu Makino plays solo show at Rough Trade

Blonde Redhead fans will delight in seeing Kazu Makino step out on her own and perform her solo material at Rough Trade on October 11th. Makino has released her first solo album called Adult Baby, which contains much of the same entrancing psych artistry that her band's fans have come to expect. Adult Baby takes that to the next level, as Makino plans to release a visual aspect to the record as well. The artist has already released the video to "Come Behind Me, So Good!" as part of that visual album; as if the faux-Satanic tint to the backwards-masked-sounding lyrics wasn't enough, in the video, Makino gyrates in a sheer outfit before the altar and the image of Jesus as other revelers sway in time with her. Take a look at the video for yourself, and go see her at Rough Trade on October 11th. - Will Sisskind





Otis McDonald's People Music

Who do we have here? Funky soul fellow Otis McDonald (moniker of Joe Bagale) is kind of rockin’ our world. He’s got a new album coming out, People Music, that we’ve got our hands on and we are dazzled. The strength in his vocals is enough to make you shed a happy tear. McDoland’s moniker is an homage to both Shuggie Otis and Michael McDonald. He says, “Even though I am a modern artist, I always pay reverence to all of the greatest artists that have come before me. Call it tangibly rooted in nostalgia while pushing forward. I want to make popular music something that is meaningful again." We’re sharing this cover of “A Day in the Life” because it’s not what we were expecting at all, and that basically sums up our entire listening experience to this fellow. We’d like to think that he’s making our dear Prince proud; there’s D’Angelo vibes, and modern-meets-old school funky jazzy moments with fascinating, solid compositions. McDonald is having a record listening party at Bar Shiru tomorrow night for the release of his vinyl (which goes out nationally this November) and we've gotta say that there is no better place to listen to anything vinyl than at Shiru. Production nerds know what I'm talking about. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
