Review: Helen - "I'd Never"

Harvey Bruce's EP "What A Year" Out Now

Anthony and the Mountain's "Glass Motorcycle" Out Now


NEW RELEASE

Curly Brown's debut single "May I" is out now!

Inspired by the sounds of big rock guitars, pounding hip-hop kick drums, and 90's plaid flannel, Chris Pizzolo aka "Curly Brown" is setting out to live his truth through self-produced sounds. Pizzolo wrote "May I" to give thanks and love to his mother for giving him life, and for being there for him when no one else needed to be.

REVIEW

"I'd Never" - Helen

As more of us become eligible for the vaccine, and we (hopefully) prepare to share those joyous pre-pandemic moments at barbeques and yard parties again, I’m already curating my summer dance playlist. And I’ve found a perfect one with indie artist Helen’s "I’d Never".

THE PRENUP: MUSIC DISCOVERY

Cheriton - "My Reverie"

Cheriton’s latest single My Reverie opens with a lyric that any twenty-or-thirty-something can relate to. “I haven’t watered the plants in a little while, I guess I’m sad about that. I haven’t spoken to you in a little while, I’m just no good at getting back.” In other words you only reap what you sow, a hard aphorism to swallow in a year where starting projects and maintaining human connection has felt nearly impossible.

An Interview with Rae Isla

In the endless quest to find more genre-bending music to add to my collection, I stumbled upon Rae Isla and her world of magical realism.After taking a listen to her single "Lovely Lies", then watching the video for it and pretty much obsessing over her perfectly-crafted discography, I wanted to learn more about the artist behind the art. Last week, I got to sit down and ask her questions about the single that led me to her.

vern matz - "Funny Water"

Funny Water, the latest single from indie duo vern matz is easy listening from the first note. Warm, layered guitars set the mood and an immediately catchy verse melody follows. The song has a relatively small melodic range, allowing anyone to sing along in the car regardless of their vocal talents (or lack thereof).
