The Armed drop final single “Liar 2” from upcoming album
The Armed have dropped a new single and video for “Liar 2” from their forthcoming album Perfect Saviors, available August 25th. Tony Wolski, the vocalist of the band (and co-producer of the album) noted, “We tend to be drawn to juxtaposition and trying to make disparate things fit in new ways to discover some novel aesthetic resonance or emotional response. Some push and pull. This is a dancey, happy track about being in the deepest pits of despair and giving way to lies and delusion as your only means of survival. It is a chocolate cake full of broken glass—the sonics of the track itself, seemingly in denial of the lyrical content.”

Rachael Sage Releases Magical Companion Video for Beatle-esque Pop-Rock Track “Flowers For Free” From New Album
Co-produced by Sage with Grammy® winner Andy Zulla and longtime engineer Mikhail Pivovarov, Rachael’s ’60s-influenced “Flowers For Free” is poetic pop-rock at its most adventurous. Beatle-esque wah guitar, baroque trumpet flourishes, chamber strings and Sage’s pulsing piano ground this psychedelic song about never giving up on this earthly life, or into the temptation of complacency. Sage’s band The Sequins drives the track, with guest guitarists James Mastro (Ian Hunter) and Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright) bringing the retro vibes.

Savana Santos Delivers New Track “cheater”
Well-versed in the art of transforming angst and heartbreak into pristine, catchy bedroom Pop, SAVANA SANTOS delivers another “mesmerizing and perfectly crafted track” (Wonderland) with “cheater,” out now via The Valory Music Co. In “cheater,” Santos shows off her penchant for wordplay, writing about a protagonist that isn’t actually having an affair with someone else, but instead is pinning for the old version of their love interest. In it, she quickly narrates the tension in a changing relationship, admitting “I’m a liar I’m a cheater I’m in love with the old you” over tense, distorted guitars that escalate at the chorus before a spiraling bridge.

NEWS: Austin Hart a.k.a. L’Orange Announces New Label ‘Old Soul Music’
After nearly 15 years of working as Creative Director with indie labels, Austin Hart aka L’Orange has left to create his own company- Old Soul Music. The first two artists announced on their roster: L’Orange and the group Marlowe with Solemn Brigham.
Starting a new label today is an insane idea. It’s near impossible to create something that mirrors the climate of indie labels in their current form. Add into that- business-as-usual model isn’t helping artists like it used to. There have to be new concepts & ideas to help artists navigate a landscape that’s increasingly leaning on technology for growth. Being a working, independent musician is prohibitively complicated and difficult.

Molly Burch new single ‘Unconditional’ | New album ‘Daydreamer’ out 29th September via Captured Tracks – produced by Wild Nothing
Molly Burch shares new single and video ‘Unconditional’ from her upcoming album Daydreamer out 29th September via Captured Tracks. Bright synths, garage rock drums, and a funky bass make the song a fun and playful listen, but as Molly describes, it is not so simple: “This song is a traditional unrequited love song but I wrote it thinking about how I feel as a working artist in todays climate. A big part of pursuing a creative job is being okay with the roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes things feel positive and sometimes you feel a lot of rejection. This is my way of expressing that through a narrative of not being seen or appreciated by a person you were romantic with.”
“slow step on quality wood” lives up to his self proclaimed title of being a “musical Swiss army knife.” Where his previous single “we can be friends” explores man’s relationship with nature behind a groovy, funky, synth led track, “slow step on quality wood” delves into his own perspective on new, fleeting relationships, showing that he can lay down fun, explorative, minimalist arrangements where every instrument (all of which iogi plays himself) can shine.
