GRANDSON RETURNS WITH NEW SINGLE “EULOGY”
Speaking about the new song, grandson elaborated, “‘Eulogy’ was written in the aftermath of a bad mushrooms trip this summer, which led me to scrapping my album and admitting to myself and others that I was struggling with fantasies of self harm. It’s easy to feel nihilistic or cynical about the future, and there’s a strange comfort in indulging in the depressing absurdity of day to day life with the only people in the world that understand you.”

Eilen Jewell Shares Her Journey To Purpose And Meaning On Expansive New Album “Get Behind The Wheel”
“They say things have to get worse before they can get better,” Idaho-born songwriter Eilen Jewell reflects on the last few years of her life. “And for a while there, everything got worse.” Indeed, in the span of just a few months, Jewell watched as her marriage, her band, and what felt like her entire career fell apart in a series of spectacular, heartbreaking implosions. By the time the dust had finally settled, the critically acclaimed recording artist was grieving and shocked, living in a remote cabin in the mountains and unsure if she’d ever get to make music again. Fortunately for all involved, especially fans of Jewell’s music, she took her time to regroup, recenter, and set off to live a renewed life—including making a new album—by dictating her own path forward.

Aimée ‘Hurt Like Hell’ – Official Video
“When deciding what to do for this music video, I took quite a different approach. Most of the time I can imagine the entire music video as soon as I’ve written the song. I would usually have so many ideas on how to tell the story of the song itself, but with ‘Hurt Like Hell’, instead of sharing the narrative of the song, I wanted to to express the feelings instead. I think the video represents the complexity of all of the emotions that comes with a break up.”
Far Caspian Shares New Single “Arbitrary Task”
“‘Arbitrary Task’ is meant to represent the journey into work and the repetition of it happening everyday,” he explains. “I moved into a studio in Leeds to record new music and the daily commute there brought me back to that repetitive feeling of working, and the emptiness we can feel in a job we hate or push ourselves too deep into. I wanted to write something quick and direct to coincide with that frustration.” Far Caspian has already sold-out his first-ever three U.S. headlining shows that surround his trip to Austin: one at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on March 10th, and two at Los Angeles’s Moroccan Lounge on March 18th and 19th.

Mylar Releases New Single “Ghost Of The Party” From Sophomore EP ‘Human Statues’ (Blue Flowers)
“The arc of the song is basically realizing these worries are yours alone and don’t reflect what other people think. You just need to let go in spite of yourself and listen to some triumphant 4×4 beats. Musically we were inspired by all those summery guitar parts and twinkly keys you heard in UK garage and Neptunes tracks growing up, that people still love. Maybe that’s because of nostalgia for a simpler time. It’s joyful, but there’s an underlying melancholy to it which seems to always be the case with big party songs.”
