Phoebe Bridgers releases video for "Motion Sickness," plays Highland Park Ebell on 9/21

Phoebe Bridgers has just released her newest music video for “Motion Sickness”, and it is artistically phenomenal. Lyrically, this single has me shook with the way Bridgers adequately describes her emotions through a nostalgic story. The simplicity of her voice quiets your mind as you watch and listen to an honest depiction of her life. This single resonates a lot with me, coming from a place where you don’t feel whole: “There are no words in the English language, I could use to drown you out.” I don’t know what I love more: the creativity of Justin Mitchell's music video, pinpointing the child-like references and intertwining them with adult problems, or Bridgers's true self coming through in her lyrics. Either way, they are both beautifully revitalizing.

“Motion Sickness” is just one single off of Bridgers's debut album, Stranger In The Alps, which is out on September 22 via Dead Oceans. Catch her play a headline show on September 21 at Highland Park Ebell. - Kayla Hay

The Great Escape live up to their name on "Let Me Go Wild"

The Great Escape brings on the funk on "Let Me Go Wild." Fronted by Ingrid Andersson's chirpy yet commanding vocals, the Venice-based band feed from a miscellany of influences ranging from classic soul to sleek pop rock. "Wild" takes many stylistic shifts during its lively three minutes, touching on some neo-soul licks and brass band theatrics worthy of a grand romp. The trio wholly embraces the old in the new without resorting to shameless parody, and really, when you're basing your song's structure off of Tommy James & the Shondells' classic "Mony Mony" you can't do no wrong.

BAUM comes to an emotional crossroads on "Hot Water", plays The Satellite on 9/8.

BAUM documents a moment of genuine self-discovery on "Hot Water." The buoyant electro-pop track gives us a glimpse into young adulthood with truthful insight, especially that moment when innocence begins to crumble without any warning. She makes a pithy observation with utmost confidence when it leads into the chorus: "You think of sex when I / spin in this dress / but I've never done much at all," she sings, adorned with a gruff yet sweet vocal style that could develop into a potential powerhouse.

BAUM is scheduled to perform at The Satellite on September 8.

Wait. Think. Fast. release soaring new single "Count No Count," play the Echo on 9/9.

Wait. Think. Fast. reach a transcendent state on their latest single, "Count No Count." The husband-and-wife duo of Matthew Beighley and Jacqueline Santillan Beighley captivate with a slow-building rocker that aims for an emotional apex. Santillan Beighley repeatedly mutters "Higher and higher and higher" with sheer delight, with a haunting voice that accentuates each measure as Beighley's prickly guitar creates a spacious, meditative soundscape.

"Count No Count" is the first single off of Wait. Think. Fast.'s forthcoming full-length, Dale Tiempo, which is due out on October 20. Catch them play a hometown show at the Echo on September 9.
