Carolina Story Shares Stunning New Track “Don’t Leave Me in the Morning”

Carolina Story has released “Don’t Leave Me in the Morning,” the latest song off their mesmerizing sophomore album – Dandelion, out September 4 via Black River Americana. Featuring the gorgeous harmonies of husband and wife duo Ben and Emily Roberts, “Don’t Leave Me in the Morning” is a stunning power-ballad with an epic, swirling string arrangement that builds as the narrator seeks reassurance in the face of insecurity. The track has been hailed by Parade, who called it “an Americana dream…one to add to the top of your favorite playlist” and Rolling Stone Country, who said “Evoking some of the tension that made the Civil Wars so thrilling, Ben and Emily Roberts intertwine their voices for a lightly psychedelic folk tune…by its end, the song has transformed into an epic rock number of soaring strings and George Harrison-style electric guitar leads.”

NYC gay alt folk artist Prince Johnny shares emotive and raw single “Sex Party”

I went on a solo trip to Iceland and then Amsterdam June 2018. I had a couple of weeks in between jobs and wanted to “live it up.” So I got cheap tickets and a cheap Airbnb and packed my bags and left.

I have an ache that’s been following me for as long as I can remember. This idea that my life is passing me by and I haven’t “lived” enough. It’s that same things as in the last demo. I’m “young & beautiful” now – shouldn’t I get all my experiences in now before I shrivel and fall off the tree? I want the experiences, I want the thrill, I want to “feel everything” like Fiona says…but something about how I’m approaching it is not serving me.

Track Out Today from Gibberish

A track released today from psych-friendly duo Gibberish, “i dreamed u” consumes with a hypnotic, lush pull. Husband-wife duo Derek and Lorie Bromley mesh the latter’s serene vocals with thumping bass, shimmering keys, and a murky aesthetic elegance.

Formed in their spare bedroom in Arkansas before moving to Los Angeles, they started out with looping live drums through effects, with Lorie playing bass and keys and Derek rounding things out with a melody and guitar after looping some sort of distorted beat. Gibberish enjoy surrounding their songs in textured, spacey blankets, while touting a core of rhythmic, lo-fi percussive sounds anchoring the wafty synths and sparkling guitars.
