The Fair Attempts release new single “Dark Star”
“There is something special about the Autumn mindset and it resonates with this single.” Says Friendly Timo, the artist behind the song. “I wrote this song to remind me how I tend to poison my mind by harboring negative thoughts and storing them in the corners of my mind. It’s this tragic duality of the human condition. Anything we intend to do has always the dualistic side to it in our psyche, and like a mirror world, it creates monsters inside us that are quite literally killing us.”

LYRICS BORN presents a new single “Diamond Door”, a new album VISION BOARD, a new tour, and a whole new Lyrics Born
His new single and video “Diamond Door” is a pop/rap banger that lands you with an infectious barb and keeps you hooked for days. Featuring New Orleans singer/songwriter Princess Shaw who coyly sings the chorus (“You want in my diamond door / I think you can come in / When I hear you knock / I hear you knock / I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knock”), the single is a thinly-veiled tribute to a particular style of female appreciation, but it can also be taken as a welcome mat to the new era of Lyrics Born.

Когда душа спит (When The Soul Sleeps) is due out on October 4th via Artoffact Records.

Toby Keith’s “Oklahoma Breakdown” debuts on Most Added today
Written and first recorded by Oklahoma-based singer/songwriter Michael Hosty, the Keith version also features Hosty on rhythm guitar and performing the slide guitar solo. “Mike was playing somewhere and I saw him do it, so it reminded me,” Keith explains. “The song has some miles on it, so I called him and asked if he wanted to play on it if I cut it. I figured everyone in that part of the world would get a kick out of him being on the record. So that’s him on rhythm and that slide solo.”
Keeping the hometown feel for Oklahoma native Keith, the end of the song’s lyric video features images of Norman, OK’s Hollywood Corners. The 1920s-era service station hosted performances by Bob Wills and Leon McAuliffe, and has been reported to be where actor James Garner had a job pumping gas as a teenager. View the video here:
New Music: Ye bro can’t go without his K like Kim // 16 Year old rap prodigy
Directed by Joni Spielberg, the music video for “Kim K ” follows FTL Jaii and Ezri as they deliver an explosive performance in dark alleyways and graffiti-stroked stairwells. It’s a hard-hitting single that discusses the recognition of greatness in oneself. FTL Jaii writes, “They keep on sayin’ I’m chosen/ I tell them I know it.” The hook of the song is a pop culture reference to Kanye and Kim as FTL Jaii says, “Like Ye bro can’t go without his K like Kim.” “Kim K” is a modern, prolific, celebration of the self as FTL Jaii and Ezri emerge with a power-punching new rap single.

A Norwegian-Iranian songwriter, producer and DJ, Marie Sahba has been making solid pop bangers since the release of her debut EP Out of Control in 2019. Combining her eastern heritage with Scandinavian pop, Marie released the touching new single “Never Got To Know You” earlier this year and with her AZERI BABY EP set to drop in October she’s teasing more new music from it with the release of “Fall Apart” today.
Marie has never hidden her roots, but on AZERI BABY she proudly presents five songs heavily influenced by her Iranian heritage and the role of her family in shaping who she is as a person and an artist. “Growing up in a multicultural home has had a big impact on my artistry,” she explains. “My father left Iran in the 1980s. He then spent four years in Istanbul, Turkey, immersed in the country’s culture, he then moved to Norway. Both my father’s and my own longing after our family in Iran and what could’ve been, has been a big part of my life.”

ATT BLOGS: Dream pop musician Jaguar Sun collaborates with power pop duo Husbands on ‘First Time Caller’
“SUNDAYS was originally made over the course of a year from April 2020 to 2021. Twenty-five hours of material from spontaneously composed live-recorded Sunday concerts was edited into an hour. Continuing in this spirit, I played a series of outdoor gatherings and recording sessions around Southern California with Carlos Niño, Josh Johnson, Jamire Williams, Efa Etoroma Jr. and Aaron Shaw. We expanded on the feelings in the music and the spontaneous composition concept, fully realizing more new places that the original SUNDAYS album suggested. I’m very pleased to present those recordings as SUNDAYS EXPANSION.” -Nate Mercereau
