A Heart is a Spade: Black Lips Debut New Video



December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Willow releases "Slumlord" EP, previews upcoming full-length "BlueLung"

Willow's Slumlord EP has finally been unleashed after recording delays held back its December release date. The four-song collection begins with the muffled vocals and layered guitars of “Fixtures," and things get even trippier on “Colors,” where warbling vocals and whistles fade in and out as guitars bounce off the walls of the nearly percussion-less production. The set closes with the sleepy “Breathe Water,” which also acts as the first release from BlueLung, the band's upcoming full-length debut. While a release date for the album has yet to be announced, you can keep tabs on the Providence rockers’ Facebook page to find out more about the band’s music and upcoming shows. – Jake Reed

Providence's The Range heads to SXSW

Providence's The Range (aka James Hinton) released his latest album, Nonfiction, on the UK label Donky Pitch last October, gaining him recognition both in the States and across the pond. The album's weirdest moments are its best: check out the dialogue that acts as a rap on "Metal Swing" and the slow ascent from spacious introduction to full-on electro jam. On March 25, he will release the EP Panasonic, but not before he makes the most out of a four-day stay in Austin for SXSW. Check out the full list of The Range’s SXSW stops above.  – Jake Reed

Austin 2014 issue (SXSW)
Read it here

 


B. Dolan brings indie rap to SXSW

B. Dolan has big things lined up for 2014. In addition to taking on SXSW this March, an as-yet-untitled film that he penned will see production later this year. On his last release, 2012’s House of Bees Vol. 2, the Rhode Island rapper is a stylistic chameleon. “Still Here” plays around with a samples straight from the Middle East, while “King Bee” finds Dolan playing frontman to an anonymous rock band – and those are just the first two tracks. “2Bad (Epic Beard Men)” reclaims the carefree vibe of the Beastie Boys’ greatest tracks and “Tin Soldiers” uses marching drums and a sample of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Ohio” to lament the injustices of the U.S. military. Catch B. Dolan with fellow Rhode Island rapper Sage Francis at Club 512 in Austin on March 14. – Jake Reed

New England Music Awards Week: Young Kaii

New England Music Awards Week resumes with Young Kaii (aka Kathy Silverio), a female rapper nominated for Hip Hop Act of the Year. The openly lesbian rapper is a role model for young people in the LGBT community, but as an artist, she believes that her music extends beyond that part of her identity. We spoke to Young Kaii about her nomination and her first album, This is Love.
