SPIELBERGS share emphatic new track “Distant Star”
If “We Are All Going To Die” gave us a look into just how intense, dark and heavy the band could go, “Distant Star” treads a more uplifting path, at least musically.

However, this is swift-becoming Spielberg’s calling-card; their ability to marry the soaring and uplifting with the dark and gloomy. Baklien continues; “Distant Star tries to capture that feeling of being stuck in relationships and leaving the responsibility for your own happiness in the hands of your close ones.”

Ashley McBryde’s GIRL GOING NOWHERE Everywhere 3/30
When Ashley McBryde and her touring band settled into producer Jay Joyce’s studio a few hours before dawn to record what would later become her first major label debut, Girl Going Nowhere, McBryde felt uninhibited. It wasn’t the whiskey or the weathered J45 that helped the Arkansas native finally feel at ease; it was the permission she gave herself to make the record she had always wanted to create without worry of Music Row naysayers complaining she was too traditional, too rock or too tattooed. The result is her 11-song album, Girl Going Nowhere, set for release tomorrow March 30 on Atlantic/Warner Bros. Nashville.

Moving with little fanfare, and only recognized by a stranger who heralds her arrival like a mysterious John the Baptist type figure, announcing her name over a patchwork grid of rural American fields.
AU/RA & CAMELPHAT – “PANIC ROOM” REMIX OUT NOW
“‘Panic Room’ is probably the darkest song I’ve written. It’s about something I don’t feel like a lot of songs talk about, which is anxiety. ‘Panic Room,’ to its very core, is about battling self-doubt and fear, and how sometimes you can be your biggest enemy. The word panic room ties into the song by saying that when fear consumes you, it automatically puts you into that panicked headspace. You think you’re safe in the panic room, but really you’re avoiding the issue and lying to yourself when you should be dealing with the problem.” reflects Au/Ra.

Kidd Bayou “Gold”
Comprised of Oregon native Luke Hall and Chicagoan Joey Colando, Kidd Bayou started creating music together while both were focusing on their own projects.
