Ray William Roldan New Single “Falling Star” – Lyric Video
THIS IS IT is a coming-of-age story in album form, a reflection on growing up but defiantly holding onto a certain innocence. All between the ages of 19 and 21, the Kansas City-based band delivers an undeniably original selection of songs that feel as intimate as a basement recording but unfold in intricate textures and melodic sophistication. The album pre-order goes live Friday, September 7 at all DSPs and grants instant grat downloads of “Don’t Go” and the previously released “You’ve Got Me” and “17.”
Additionally, Kelly was recently selected as one of NPR Music’s 2018 Slingshot Artists, a collection of exceptional up-and-coming artists chosen by public radio stations across the country. NPR Music declares, “Damn, is he good…Kelly digs down deep on Dying Star to fearlessly put forth a set of songs steeped in emotional twists, turns and complications…This here is powerful stuff.”

Paul Hazel Returns to Claim His Title of ‘The Future of British Techno’

Lando Chill “Dah Vapor” | Brooklyn Vegan Debuts New Single
About the new track, Lando comments: “Black culture is popular culture; with versions of various racial caricatures and appropriated stereotypes within every facet of our entertainment. There is a pure difference between reverence and obsession, and on ‘Dah Vapor’; produced by The Lasso and featuring Swansuit, we delve deep into that paradigm. We as a consumer base have varying levels of societal awareness in regards to the appropriation of black, brown, & queer culture, and waver between accepting it as a causality of our progression toward representation and true equality or as an aspect of colorblind or supremacist ideology rearing itself through the whitewashing of our history and the degradation of civil rights. In ‘Dah Vapor’, the exploration beyond the surface level of appropriation searches for authenticity; or lack-thereof, and the commodification of what starts as cultural & regional distinction but morphs into either a commodifiable flashpoint or misconceptions built from ignorance. We, as a people, are an untapped potential; a spout controlled by gatekeepers who search for the flavor of the month, and by the shackles surrounding our own perception of self.”
Emery Adeline Releases Video From Killin’ Time
Influenced by the likes of Nanci Griffith, Alison Krauss and Fleetwood Mac, Adeline has spent her twenty-three years of life with firm roots in the Colorado soil giving her an affinity for exploring the natural world. Whether riding raging rapids with her brother, skiing steep slopes with her father, painting sprawling fields of wildflowers with her mother, or standing on the cliffs of Ireland with new friends, Adeline has the ability to harness fresh air as a source of inspiration for her music.
The track premiered via Impose Magazine where the band shared, “This song is meant to be a fun, poppy ode to our purpose and a follow-up to our old festival tune, ‘Shakin’ & Swayin’. We give ‘Shakin’ a little shout-out in the chorus of ‘Gimme.’ At our live shows, it’s important to us that we create an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and feels like they can be themselves, and that’s what ‘Gimme’ is all about. We beseech our audience to let their hair down and send us back the same love and energy we’re trying to send to them.”
‘Understanding’, Mirah’s 6th full length solo record, is a conscientious return to her early unconventional recording process — an embrace of spirited imperfection and rawness inclusive of rough first takes, natural room sounds, and a fair amount of broken equipment. Bathed in the sparkles of disco ball light, Mirah recorded demos with vocals, guitar, organ, and percussion in a former army barracks gymnasium at The Headlands Center for the Arts, where she spent four weeks as an artist in residence.
Gengahr Share New Track “Atlas Please” || Out Now On Transgressive Records
“‘Atlas Please’ is us considering that our lasting memories are the ones shared in good company – although, at times it can feel as though the weight of the world is resting on your shoulders. Talking to friends and considering our own personal experiences, we’re mindful that we often find it easier to suffer in silence than to open up – so being able to identify when someone you care about is hurting and to make the time to help them is an incredibly important and powerful thing to do. We hope you all enjoy the song, and look forward to seeing you soon.”
