Acclaimed Pianist August Rosenbaum uses his own voice on “Swim On”

Sparse where it needs to be, “Swim On” leaves space for the watery instrumentation leaving you fully soaked. Here August takes his incredible musical talent to paint a sonic portrait that sucks you right in from the beginning – like getting stuck in a rip current. Its steady bass line hooks you under, much like love itself, his voice floating atop; like glimmers of sunlight peaking through the rippling surface, water illuminating up above.

LA-based alternative artist Ronboy shares debut LP ‘Pity To Love’

Out today, Ronboy’s debut album Pity To Love emerged first from feelings, rather than specific subject matter, and came together after a few tireless weeks in the studio. “A lot of the album’s concept comes from me grappling with my own mental health. I had a feeling, more than a topic, for the songs and wasn’t sure if they would translate the way I heard them in my head,” Ronboy explains. Speaking to the recording process, Ronboy says, “The recording process began as us chipping away when we could and ended with us all together for two hardcore weeks tying up each song. We’d record all day then I’d go straight to my studio to track final vocals, wake up the next day, print the vocals, maybe track some piano or something and head back to the studio to do it all over again for the next song.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to release my debut album, Barstool Whiskey Wonderland,” Doleac said. “So much hard work and time and LIFE has gone into making it.

Barstool Whiskey Wonderland is full of my favorite lyrics, titles, and most importantly, my favorite emotions. I hope you listen to it top to bottom, and then I hope you do it again.”

Precious Reveals New Single ‘Looking For Trouble’

Rising star Precious Pepala today shares her new single ‘Looking For Trouble,’ another example of Precious’ bold, mature lyricism and powerful voice. At just seventeen, Precious’ lyrics manage to contain universal sentiments that speak to her generation – the latest single, about the fear women feel walking alone a night, is no different: “She’s cold and she’s drunk, A little red riding her luck in the hood, She’s asking for trouble, Oh, that’s what they’ll say if trouble comes heading her way”. Swelling until it reaches a huge hook, destined to be screamed in crowded rooms, ‘Looking For Trouble’ follows Precious’ debut single ‘My Eyes Only,’ a big statement of intent from pop’s brightest new talent.

Hotel Fiction brings a space-bound love back to Earth on “Man on the Moon”

On today’s release, the duo said, “’Man on the Moon,’ despite being one of our most upbeat songs, is a metaphor for a struggling relationship. Distance can make someone you love feel like they’re on a different planet, physically and emotionally.” They continue. “It’s bittersweet to hear about a loved one’s adventures over the phone when they are far away. You’re happy they’re having the time of their life but wish you were there to enjoy those moments with them. The song never asks them to come home and has long accepted the fact that maybe they never will.”
