Brooklyn’s Stimmerman (Eva Lawitts) releases new experimental rock single “Ruptured Lung” today

Stimmerman is the rock band of Eva Lawitts. With deceptively unusual rhythms, colorful and jagged harmonies and clear, repeatable melodies, Stimmerman makes music that feels a little bit like Art-Rock, but with no pretense, or a little bit like grunge, but glasses on. Eva’s mother is a classical oboist, and from a young age intricate baroque melodies floated through their house. From there a childhood love of At the Drive In, Motorhead, and Hendrix, an adolescent love of Mastodon and Eric Dolphy and an adult love of Gillian Welch and Jon Bap, as well as broadly speaking, a love of of all kinds poured into the songs of Stimmerman, which aim to hold a cathartic space for the audience.

Bring Prudence’s “Midnight” creates rockabilly momentum on a portrait of a stunted relationship – out today

Within the 11 songs on his sophomore album, Dreamboat (April 7), Bring Prudence expands upon the foundation of his stripped-down debut, diving into a range of sonic influences from Gillian Welch to the Amelie soundtrack. The album is full of magical thinking, disintegrating relationships, childhood loneliness, and sacrifice, with a cast of Ukrainian folklore characters—and, occasionally, a small sprinkling of business jargon for kicks. “Midnight,” out today, offers a sound inspired by the rockabilly momentum of Old 97’s and Jason Molina-esque slide guitar on an examination of a stunted, one-way relationship.

Out Now: Alt-pop band [mila] shares debut single & music video “Thuong Qua Is Vietnamese For I Love You”

Speaking on the new single the band shares, “Thuong Qua is a song about being face to face with things you know are toxic, and wanting to have the strength to choose things that are more wholesome and healthy for you. On a macro level, it’s about vaping. On a micro level, it’s about love.”

Alex Exists is “Dancing With Chaos” in Hypnotic New Single & Video

“Dancing With Chaos” is the first single from forthcoming debut album, Everybody’s Famous (Except Me). “This song is for anyone that feels overwhelmed by the state of the media, politics, and the unrealistic societal expectations that are placed on us,” Alex explains. “It’s an ode to confronting chaos head on, and having fun with it, instead of running for the hills.”

We Three release heartfelt new single ‘In Therapy’

‘In Therapy’ is a heartfelt acoustic-led pop ballad which showcases a deep vulnerable side to their songwriting as frontman Manny Humlie admittedly sings, “I’m a jealous little piece of shit,” after telling us that he saw The 1975 live and couldn’t help wondering whether his partner liked Matty Healy more than him.

Media Alert: Melanie Pfirrman Releases Epic Cinematic Power Ballad, “Remnant”

“I’ve always loved the music of Céline Dion and dreamt of having a power ballad of my own,” shares Pfirrman. “This song feels straight out of a movie scene, so I’m proud that that’s exactly what we accomplished.”


Following her hit singles like “W.I.T.C.H.” and “Hey Cowboy,” “Call U After Rehab” exemplifies Devon’s softer side. “‘Call U After Rehab’ is my most vulnerable release yet,” says Devon. “It’s a love song about pausing a relationship in order to take care of myself. I was putting off my issues for a while and finding any way to justify my bad habits. Deciding to say goodbye to my closest comforts, to give myself the space and time to heal, felt like ripping off a bandaid that had been there for ages. And this release kind of feels the same, in some ways. I hope people can relate by interpreting the rehab idea however they want to.”

Rick Monroe & The Hitmen “Looking” for a Love…

If you southern fried an Eagles track, threw in some Nashville Hot Sauce and added a dash of Classic Rock à la Boston, you’d get something like “Looking”. The latest track from Rick Monroe and The Hitmen talks about the search for someone who compliments you and will reciprocate the same love you are willing to give.

Malcolm Springer (Multi Platinum Producer) says, “This song is a GD masterpiece and f#%k anyone who says it’s not. And you can quote me on that.”


“I wanted to make a video that shows me at my most vulnerable place: completely without makeup where I am my true natural self,” shares singer Edith Victoria on “TMI.” “The song is about low self-esteem, anxiety, and self-hatred. I know everyone experiences these deep emotions, so I made it my mission to let people know that they are not alone in it. It’s normal to have trouble accepting yourself, flaws and all – I wanted everyone to know that they aren’t alone in their darkness.”

NYC Soul/Pop Collective Release Breezy, Funk-Driven Ballad, “Splinters,”

Today, the NYC-based soul/pop collective Gideon King & City Blog unveils “Splinters,” the title track of their new EP, slated for release on September 15th. A breezy, funk-driven ballad, “Splinters” captures the band at a creative peak, as their years of gigging and studio collaboration meld into some of their finest work to date. “‘Splinters’ is one of those rare examples of a song coming out largely as envisioned,” Gideon recalls. “Usually, the chaos of human input and practical realities changes the spark of your idea into an unpredictable flame that either warms you or burns you. But Splinters is different. It’s actually what was in my head, a textural thing with a pop/funk tune lurking in the middle.”


The Damned have just released a new video/track from their forthcoming studio album; “Beware Of The Clown” is out now. The track was written by founding member Captain Sensible to deride what he calls the “conveyor belt of bozos” who lead us. The track musically evokes two magical Damned albums, 1982’s STRAWBERRIES and 1985’s PHANTASMAGORIA. “It wasn’t intended,” co-founder and lead singer David Vanian admits, “it just happened”. Martin Gooch, responsible for the A NIGHT OF A THOUSAND VAMPIRES concert film, directs the video in which The Captain takes center stage as a politician cursed by all things clown (any resemblance to any real politician is purely coincidental).


Sunesthesia has a very fine and sophisticated melodic hard rock sound like UFO, Whitesnake, and Michael Schenker Group. The first single, “Speed Warning #1,” features Rainbow vocalist Ronnie Romero. The album has 12 tracks in total, with a core line up of Steph Honde – vocals, keyboards, guitars; Van Alexandre – lead guitars; JP Costa – rhythm guitars, vocals; Gui N Silva – bass guitars; and Fred Mika – drums. With artwork by Tristan Greatrex (UFO, MSG, Vinnie Moore, Lionheart, and more).

Echosmith Releases New Single “Hindsight”

“Hindsight” is a reminder to see the beauty in the present and not just in the rearview. With hard hitting lyrics written by Echosmith, the deceptively upbeat track explores our collective habit of only finding beauty in something once the moment has already passed. On the track, Echosmith builds a dreamy atmosphere with front-woman Sydney Sierota’s silky vocals and effervescent production done by Noah and Jamie Sierota. The band is currently in the studio finishing up their forthcoming album.


PARIA Unleash Official Music Video for New Single, “Venerate”!

The Mars Volta ‘Que Dios Te Maldiga Mi Corazon’ Out April 21

Much more than a simple “un- plugged” version of ‘The Mars Volta’ – the bands self titled seventh album and return as a band – this acoustic rendition furthers the mission of the source music, which drew into sharper focus the traditional Latin influences that have always inspired Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala. This is, says Rodríguez- López, The Mars Volta’s version of a “folk record”, tracing the melodies and rhythms of the parent album back to their traditional Caribbean roots and chal- lenging listeners to hear the group in an entirely new light.

Alt-Pop Artist dee holt Shares the Empowering New Single “Dishes”; Announces New EP ‘I’ll Be There’ 

dee explains: “I wrote this song about a one-sided relationship… It’s about someone who gives it their all, while the other sits and watches. It speaks about being taken for granted and walked all over. However, as the song goes on, this person realizes their worth and gets out of this draining relationship and comes to the conclusion that they’re so much better off without it. There are only so many chances you can give to someone, and this song is about standing your ground when it becomes too much.”


Bromsens third single “We!” is available on streaming platforms and celebrates the unshakable power of friendship. Richard and Karlo know each other for 20 years now and are convinced that their deep friendship has helped them through many low blows in life.

Properties Of Nature And Aluxes New Swancore Single “Clock Blocked”


“Wild and Uneven is a collection of songs about mental health and body liberation,” Amber explains. “Each song was written about my own struggles: feeling objectified as a woman, recovering from an eating disorder, living with depression and anxiety, and fearing that I won’t be accepted for all of who I am. Writing these songs was so healing for me, and I hope they bring healing to those who face similar issues. So many of us are suffering silently, and I want people to know that they aren’t alone.”

Told from the perspective of a grieving man who is determined to honor his relationship with his departed friend, Owens highlights his ability to share his personal experiences through his music and touching on moments that resonate and settle in the heart of his listeners. Focusing on remembrance, not avoidance, Owens refuses to bury the memories to avoid the turmoil accompanying them. Displaying his vulnerability candidly, without crossing the line that separates poignant songcraft from heavy-handed songwriting, he portrays a deep understanding of the human condition, creating a casual conversation out of a topic that could easily become an emotional bloodletting. “Tears Rolling Down” is the second track taken from the band’s forthcoming EP Into The Light Vol.2, set for release later this year. “Bride,” released last month and features Leora Joy Perrie, is set to the vibrant jangle of a ukulele and propelled forward by energetic “heys.” The song’s infectious chorus and exuberant, merry energy propelled Grimy Goods, Ones To Watch, Twangville, and others to support the release.
