"' Horizons' EP

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Dre Green

The local label Lo Motion has released the debut EP, Only One, from young R&B singer Dre Green. The Ep features production work from some of Chicago finest, The GTW, Supreme Cuts, The-Drum, and others. The EP is a laidback and soulful gem and presents a talented songstress on the verge of blowing up.


Arthur Caudy

Arthur Caudy is the production work of John Klein and the guitars of Danny Schaefer. Their self-titled debut album was released last week and it may not be what you expect. When you look at the cover with hand drawn dogs looking at each other you would not expect thumbing bass, interesting electronics, and shredding guitars to come blaring out of your speakers. However it is a thrilling surprise filled with near industrial EDM through to the last second.
