Again, back in 2020 we spent the day at Hotel2Tango studio in Montreal — we put out the videos of some of these sessions, but now can finally share the audio on this deluxe upgraded version of the album, Return to Lovers Rock.

Daisy The Great Share “Aluminum”

“‘Aluminum’ was actually the last song we wrote for the album,” say Daisy the Great’s Kelley Nicole Dugan and Mina Walker. “We wrote it with our pal Gabe Goodman, and it is about self-perception.

The Midnight Release Romantic and Moving Ballad “Heart Worth Breaking” Today! New Studio Album Heroes – due out September 9th via Counter Records

The first step on The Hero’s Journey is “the call to adventure” and in literature and film this usually means a visit from a stranger, a treasure map is found, or a secret passage is revealed. In my life however, the call was so subtle I could barely hear it. For me, it came by way of a breakdown in my early 20s when I realized (maybe stoned in my friend’s dad’s minivan) that even if I got everything I ever wanted, that I probably wouldn’t be able to hold on to it. I didn’t know how to love myself. My life was elsewhere – all projection and filler. Shortly after that realization, I bought a plane ticket and left my hometown for the first time to find an adventure that I’d been missing. – Tyler Lyle, The Midnight

Left Coast string band Hot Buttered Rum announces new album, shares first track

Like a long, dark piece of music, the pandemic started small, then got big, and loud, and painfully dissonant. Hot Buttered Rum did their best to cope with its indignities, as most did, and much of that coping was done through the business of making lots and lots of noise. The songs that emerged from all this noise-making are a little louder than any the band has released to date in what became the latest album, Shine All Night. Hot Buttered Rum hopes to help provide some cheer in the times ahead, whether those times are brighter, darker or, as so often, somewhere in between.
