Alex Bloom releases frenzied new single "Cigarette," plays Hotel Figueroa on 5/3 & 5/24

The cigarette equally intrigues and annoys Alex Bloom.  On his latest single, the aptly named "Cigarette," the singer-songwriter does an informal case study on how the vicious habit colors the environment in the city where he lives. He accurately describes it with palpable anxiety, diverting from one tangential observation to the next in a state of frenzy. He caves in—"No regrets," Bloom exclaims with a droll delivery over a bludgeoning, grunge-informed riff. 
"Cigarette" follows his hypnotic 2018 self-released track "Elevator." Catch Bloom perform at Hotel Figueroa on May 3 and May 24. 


Sofia Wolfson faces changing times on "Nothing's Real," play The Love Song on 6/18

On "Nothing's Real," Sofia Wolfson wishes that time stood still. "Going through the motions and spinning like a wheel," the singer-songwriter reflects, a genuine sentiment that comes from not having things figured out. It's an emotion that hits on a personal level, presumably the result of juggling the challenges of a music career and her life as a student. Wolfson's increased anxiety otherwise unfolds with patience and equanimity—she perfectly captures the excitement and ennui of entering young adulthood over some colorful guitar work. 

"Nothing's Real" is taken off of Wolfson's latest EP, Adulting. Watch her perform at The Love Song on June 18. Juan Rodríguez


Nightjacket unveil captivating new single “Waking Up With You,” play the Troubadour on 4/23

Holland Belle shows her unabated love with complete abandon on “Waking Up With You.” The deeply romantic new single by indie-rock trio Nightjacket is the perfect vehicle for Belle to reveal her innermost desires. “Ooh, waking up with you/there’s so much more to find,” Belle sings with her delicate, yet commanding croon, a sweet affirmation that pairs lovingly alongside the band’s brisk, charging pop-rock arrangement. Her lyrical sentiments—evoked with plainspoken simplicity—were inspired after she moved to Berlin to follow the love of her life.

“Waking Up With You” is the first single off of Nightjacket’s debut full-length, Beauty in the Dark, which is due out on May 31. There’s plenty of chances to catch the trio perform in the coming weeks: first at the Troubadour on April 23, followed by a show at the Bootleg on May 7. Juan Rodríguez

Mini Trees paces herself on new single "Steady Me"

Last we heard from Lex Vega—who performs as Mini Trees—was last year when we covered her reflective single "Take It Back." Her latest, "Steady Me," expands upon her lithe ambient touches with a tightly crafted indie-pop sound. Vega brims with cautious optimism, recognizing the goodwill that comes from being in a healthy relationship while also accepting its inevitable missteps. She's gradually coming into her own, taking another songwriting leap forward with sure-footed ease.

"Steady Me" is the first single off of Mini Trees' forthcoming debut EP, which is set for release in May. Juan Rodríguez
