Katie Rush returns with new R&B-glazed album Stage Life

Katie Rush is everything that is great about synth-pop music: the group confidently delivers a sonic meteor shower that dazzles with its dreamy synth melodies and sonorous bass lines. The harmonious flow of the band’s latest album Stage Life comes from R&B-lacquered vocals and essential drum beats. The group’s ten-track album is a sweet ride from start to finish that is powered by the tender yet sophisticated singing style of lead vocalist Katie Wagner. Think of Katie Rush as a soulful alternative to synth-pop group of the moment Chvrches. The record is dedicated to the memory of band member Sam Mehran who helped write, produce, mix, and master the album. We have the title track here for you. - Rene Cobar





Little Slugger's "You're on Your Own" is an American roadtrip

Brooklyn-by-way-of-Burlington’s Little Slugger exists at the intersection of indie rock, rockabilly, and surf rock, creating music from a DIY show in Westworld. Their recent single “You’re on Your Own,” the debut track from forthcoming LP I Want To Live Here Forever, is full of unexpected musical twists, from the introduction of vocalist Sam Bevet’s drawling, baritone vocals, to a metamorphosis from high gain synths to jangling guitars, to a sliding, Surfaris-inspired shredding breakdown. And while the listenability of “You’re on Your Own” derives in part from this unpredictability, these varied instrumental components coalesce over the track’s nearly four minute run time to create Americana that’s weird in the best way, the sonic equivalent of the Further bus chugging down Interstate 80 and incorporating all Statesian influences it happens upon along the way. Hop aboard, and stream the single below. -Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Meera Jagroop

The Weird Years offer a new brand of folk music with their self-titled EP

The few tracks that have been released by the newly formed Brooklyn quartet The Weird Years showcase a unique hybrid of folk music. Employing slowly strummed guitars and vocal harmonies, the group initially shroud their sound with simplicity, dwelling on themes revolving around the march of time and the paradoxical feelings that come with being alone. It's only after prolonged listening that their DNA unravels, revealing a double helix that equally relishes in a slow-burning ambiance. It's an arresting combination which makes their EP deserving to be unpacked patiently. -Tucker Pennington





Akinyemi pays tribute to the past, embraces the future, performs at Elsewhere 05.25

The elegant hip-hop beats that dominated the tracks of 50 Cent's 2003 breakout album Get Rich or Die Tryin' feel like a relic of olden days. The splendor of those beats was in their concentration of funky bass lines, R&B buffs, and kickdrums that popped alongside the velvety verses that laid on the track. It is the smoothly-layered words of NYC's Akinyemi—alongside his tribute to those beats—that make the artist a standout in the current crowded hip hop market. In his song "Fleece" (streaming) the young MC suggests protection from the elements: he references the frigidness of greed, the heat of competition, the winds of change. Akinyemi says, "the weather isn't bigger," and the more you listen to his track, the more you feel inclined to believe him. The Queens Village rapper is ready to bring his message to Zone One, Elsewhere on May 25th, loud and clear. - Rene Cobar
