Foreign Air drops new single "Better for It" and play U Street

With soaring vocals and infectious backbeats, DC-based Foreign Air brings you "Better for It," the latest single from the alt/synth-pop duo. Starting with simple, delicate piano, the tune's momentum gradually builds, eventually doubling down and releasing into lush layers of instrumentation by the time the chorus hits. "Better for It" is ripe-for-radio ear candy, and we'd be shocked if you're not humming along with the hook by the track's end.  Stream "Better for It" below, and catch them at the U Street Music Hall 10/27 with the Strumbellas. - Olivia Sisinni

The Deli DC Area's Record of the Month: Go Cozy - "Glaziao"

Named after the Puerto Rican slang word for perfect surfing conditions, Go Cozy’s debut full length Glaziao is a warm and hypnotic release that takes inspiration from ethereal acts such as The Sundays and The LA's. The quintet creates deeply personal music while wielding airy guitar tones and lush melodies. Lyrically, the album touches on themes of self-loathing, introspection, and damaging love, while warm shimmering guitars and graceful harmonies from front-man Homero Salazar Andrujovich and Maria Sage keep Go Cozy’s music delightfully upbeat. Definitely an enjoyable find. - John Honan

Check out Cat Be Damned's thoughtful and sleepy dream pop

Cat Be Damned is the lo-fi recording project of Richmond artist Erik Phillips, whose latest album Daydreams in a Roach Motel was released in May via Joy Void Records. His intimately soft tracks reflect on his introverted and antisocial tendencies, while also examining religion and what it’s like to be queer in the South. Drawing from inspirations such as Elvis Depressedly, Neil Young, and Elliot Smith, Phillips’ sleepy tracks employ the use of hushed vocals and melodic synths to shape his placid sound. - John Honan
