Peaceful Faces shares new single “Hunger” ahead of new LP out March 10

“I was on the phone with my sister while noodling on the guitar, as I often do. She latched onto something random I was playing, and I decided to build a song off of it. ‘Hunger’ is rooted in nostalgia, but it’s also about realizing that things may not have been the way they seemed at the time. I’m proud of the way this one builds patiently to its inevitable climax.” -Tree Palmedo / Peaceful Faces

Indie Duo CHAMPS Have Found “What Heaven Is Looking For”

“‘What Heaven Is Looking For’ is late night in a dimly lit room. A pretentious fantasy of Paris in the 20s. Dark reds, burlesque, paintings of Mediterranean fruit,” says Michael Champion setting the tone for the new single. “It’s not necessarily a person that Heaven needs to fill an unknown void but more a scenario. An ironically earthly scenario. A glimpse behind the curtain to a time that’s already come and gone. Heaven is probably still looking for it, but might not ever find it. Heaven will always be bleaker than earth. Or at least Paris in the 20s”

aja monet shares new single / short film “The Devil You Know”

Surrealist blues poet and cultural worker aja monet has released a new powerful single and mesmerizing short film “The Devil You Know” via the drink sum wtr label, a new imprint of Secretly Canadian. Akin to her 2022 debut single “Give My Regards To Brooklyn” the song was created in collaboration with storied jazz trumpetist Christian Scott, drummer Marcus Gilmore, Samora Pinderhughes, and a cadre of other esteemed musicians, manifesting as an urgent rallying cry to demolish the insidious systems from which our futures seem to be wrought. Reminiscent of legendary jazz poets like Gil Scott Heron and Jayne Cortez, aja monet “wrote ‘the devil you know’ in support of a people’s movement to protect the planet and honor basic rights of all, especially the most vulnerable,” states monet. “the song is a sonic ode to our striving for a better society. It leans on the radical tradition of jazz, blues, and poetry clubs around the world to gather and speak truth to power, to exercise our hearts, visions, and dreams together so that we may be made anew.” The single anticipates a forthcoming full length from monet – more info is anticipated on that soon.
