Tei Shi shares new video for “GRIP”; NY and LA headlining shows announced

Colombian-Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Tei Shi returns today with a captivating lyric video for her latest single, “GRIP.” The single served as Tei Shi’s first independent release and touched on the harrowing experience she underwent while in the middle of a strained relationship with her labels at the time. Although “GRIP” was born out of a contentious moment, the single showcases Tei Shi’s relentless and defiant spirit as she steps into her power. The striking visual directed by frequent collaborator Jonatán López depicts the literal chokehold Tei Shi was under as she was dealing with the exploitative facets of the music industry.

The band comments about the album: “Für Dich Existiert Das Alles Nicht is the purest example of this bands determination to concentrate all of its unrelenting elements into a pressure vacuum and explode them out into new and unexpected textures that will remain with the listener in a multitude of ways. TERRA have been biding their time; sharpening their claws on the pavement they have dragged themselves through to better utilize a way to gift the most honest statement of intent imaginable.”

Pillbox Patti Releases Latest Track, “Eat Pray Drugs”

Pillbox Patti’s style is one Forbes has called “hypnotic” and “poignant” while stating “It’s…honesty and authenticity that Hayford wants to share with listeners on her debut project.” Written by Hayford with Aaron Raitiere, Park Chisolm, Benjy Davis, and Connie Harrington, and produced by Chisolm, “Eat Pray Drugs” is brutally honest about the life Pillbox Patti led growing up in Florida with little money, resources, or options for extracurricular activities. It paints a clear image into a reality many live every day.

MONOWHALES Release New Album ‘Tunnel Vision’

Hook-heavy, but more groove-based, “Change###” pushes the boundaries of what a rock song can be. The focus track features an explosive rhythm-section in the guitar solo and lead vocalist Sally Shaar’s Robert Plant-esque wailing of emotion carries into the final chorus.


Both a love letter and a rallying cry, How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? is an expansive, uplifting, sun-drenched collection of singalongs produced by Jim Abbiss (Bombay Bicycle Club, Arctic Monkeys, Adele). Featuring co-writing collaborations with the likes of Maggie Rogers & Jamie Hartman, the albums finds the Reading 4-piece emerging from the darkness of 2019’s Future Dust full of lust for life and post-pandemic hope.

Multi-Platinum Artist // Pastel Dipped Anthemic Pop // New Single

On the video, Mimoza confides, “My concept for the video was ‘modern romance.’ I think we often romanticize how beautiful life would be if that one person fell in love with us but what if we romanticized falling in love with ourselves first?” Mimoza teaches us to still wear a crown, even with a broken heart and shows us once again that the most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves.

Bret Koontz & Truancy Club Announce New LP, Share “Strange New Love” Single + Video via CHORUS.FM | A Sparkle Road Cult Out 11/18 via Earth Libraries

Today, Bret Koontz & Truancy Club (ft. members of Fran, Famous Laughs) announce their new LP, A Sparkle Road Cult, out November 18 via Earth Libraries. The sound at the center of A Sparkle Road Cult is Bret’s voice. It’s an idiosyncratic writer and composer’s voice that has shades of the outsider sounds of Robert Wyatt, Syd Barrett, and Arthur Russell. The accompanying arrangements bring to mind the songcraft of the Carpenters and Prefab Sprout-esque Sophisti-Pop shaken up/down by a touch of the large format boogie of Wings and raw Power Pop of Big Star.
