On “Bite,” Lou Roy’s delicate animosity will leave you wanting more

It isn’t too often that a young singer-songwriter from L.A. writes and creates a literary masterpiece. On “Bite,” Lou Roy passionately tells a deeply moving and emotional story through her lyrics—the newest release from her upcoming EP Your Friend, out in November. Roy’s sultry voice creates an indie jazz vocal experience that will set the tone for your night in alone. It draws influences from the musical stylings of Joni Mitchell and Fiona Apple, but Roy finds a sound that is all her own.

Passionate sentiments like ‘bite so hard’ have settled so deep in my bones that I am not sure if I can wait until November 15 for her EP to drop. Thankfully, though, she has a release show in at The Bootleg Theater on the 11th—and it is not to be missed. - Kayla Hay

Illuminati Hotties' brash, yet sweet "ppl plzr" narrates a night gone wrong

These days, Sarah Tudzin would rather not overthink things too much. In between touring in support of her debut album, last year's Kiss Yr Frenemies, Tudzin (who fronts Illuminati Hotties) has been releasing new material as it comes to her—raw, spontaneous, and without considering the album format. One of those experiments, "I Wanna Keep Yr Dog," was a slice of cool surf-pop that could've easily stood out in a full-length album. Her latest, "ppl plzr," is brash and beautiful, a fuzz-driven scorcher where she details a messy relationship quarrel during a loveless New Year's Eve. It's sad, but also bitingly humorous, elegantly illustrating Tudzin's songwriting mastery—even if she downplays the track as a spur-of-the-moment idea. 

All proceeds from the single will be donated to The Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ young folks under age 25. - Juan Rodríguez

Listen to Hurt Valley's dusty, sun-dappled debut single "Apartment Houses," sign to Woodsist

Brian Collins doesn't wish anything heinous on any duplicitous friendships. So instead, the rootsy singer-songwriter, who goes by Hurt Valley,  would rather kill them with kindness. "I'm so happy you are leaving/I only want good things for you," Collins jests on his first single "Apartment Houses," keeping his cool over a breezy guitar melody that's pitched halfway between acoustic folk and late-sixties British psychedelia. The dusty, sun-dappled track takes Collins out of the city and into the highway, or at least through his state of mind, learning to move on as he gives himself the space he needs. 

 "Apartment Houses" is the first single off Hurt Valley's debut album Glacial Place, which is due out December 6 via Woodsist. - Juan Rodríguez
