John Andrews & The Yawns returns with Love For The Underdog – Out April 28th on Woodsist, watch his hand animated video for “Checks In The Mail” now

John Andrews is something of an open secret in a certain corner of the music scene: a versatile musician & animator. A film school drop out whose work hat-tips tradition as much as outsider anti-aesthetics. He’s spent over a decade on the DIY circuit, playing early house shows alongside then up-and-coming peers Weyes Blood and Daniel Bachman. Today he is still out there projecting his sketchy hand drawn animations during his performances in coffee shops, small galleries and non-traditional venues. Andrews’ painterly approach now introduces us to his version of New York City, the place he was bound to end up after years of dwelling in Pennsylvania farm towns and New Hampshire barns. There is handmade vibrancy to the world he’s imagined for us here: intimate moments seen from the interior, looking outward from hole-in-the-wall restaurants, theaters and the fragments of peace found within the restless and dirty street corners.

On Field of Appearances, Object of Affection tap into the primitivism of said members’ diverse projects while elevating their capacity for atmosphere and melody. Hints of gloomy punk, forlorn new wave, and down-and-out Regan-era alternative rock reverberate in their sound, not as pastiche but in sonic kinship to the austerity and fatalism embedded in the previous generation’s desperate and dejected anthems. With the inclusion of drum machines, synthesizers, acoustic guitars, and auxiliary percussion, Field of Appearances highlights the band’s sophisticated evolution and experimentation.

RAYE Drops Long-Awaited Debut LP “My 21st Century Blues”

Speaking on the release of her deeply personal first full-length album, the south London native emotionally shares, “My 21st Century Blues. My debut album. My ugly, complex, beautiful mosaic formed from broken pieces of glass from the last seven years of my life. This music is my medicine, my anxieties, traumas, and unfiltered thoughts. The music on this record empowered me to face my demons and has accompanied me through my bluest blues, crafted unapologetically and fearlessly with love and tears. Now I can only hope it might provide the same medicine it did for me for those who choose to listen. I can’t believe it is really happening – my first album.”

Once you’re in that darkness long enough, it can become almost comforting. You start to see the beauty in the pain. And in the end, there’s a sort of acceptance that you will never be the person you were again. In that acceptance, there is freedom to be someone new.”

Ray explains, “I was sitting at home during the pandemic and missing NYC, thinking about how liberated I always felt there as a young queer person just starting to get comfortable with myself.

Woodes, Australia’s Most Captivating Creative Mind, Shares “Forever After” 

Elle shares, “I wrote ‘Forever After’ about love and the process of moving on, alongside grief. I started writing this at the start of 2022, after the breakdown of a relationship. I packed my things and moved interstate. ‘Forever After’ was the thought that I wouldn’t want to erase the love or the story; they’re a part of me forever. Personally, I was rebuilding everything around me, including my relationship with music after the time in the pandemic. I found myself playing piano again, writing songs to heal. I found myself hiking and returning to nature, starting to reconnect with myself. I’m so proud of the process. It feels like my most personal work.”

Once you’re in that darkness long enough, it can become almost comforting. You start to see the beauty in the pain. And in the end, there’s a sort of acceptance that you will never be the person you were again. In that acceptance, there is freedom to be someone new.”

REZN: Chicago Ethereal Heavy Psych Outfit To Release Solace Full-Length March 8th; First Single Streaming

For the uninitiated, the music churned out by Chicago quartet REZN manages to convey both crushing mass and cosmic weightlessness. The seed for the band’s megaton riffs and psychedelic journeys was planted when guitarist Rob McWilliams and bassist Phil Cangelosi began jamming together at age twelve in the DC commuter town of Leesburg, Virginia. They relocated to Chicago in 2015, recruited local sound engineer Patrick Dunn to bash on the drums, and, after playing just three shows together, set about recording their debut album — the molten amp worship service, Let It Burn. They invited their friend Spencer Ouellette into the studio to round out their bottom-heavy sound with the hum-and-squall of modular synth, and the added textural component immediately became a key facet to their sound.

Margo Price releases video for new single ‘Radio’ feat. Sharon Van Etten…

The standout collaboration “begins with little more than a minimalist drum pattern before bursting into a sweeping, Springsteenish road anthem” (Pitchfork), and from a hot pink house in Nashville, the video captures Price in the midst of technicolored catharsis as she drowns out the noise of critics and commenters who keep pushing her around, trying to change her face and sound. Accompanied by the harmonies that co-writer Sharon Van Etten sends through the waves of 1970s-era TV screens, she finds herself perfectly confident and content being all alone, moving from red velvet bedspreads to an opulent array of mirrors, filling each room with nude dance solos and clouds of weed smoke.

Fast guitars, melodic lines, growling’s and orchestration to place all the elements of the story that is being told, with a neoclassical twist in various points.

Speaking on the single, Paravi says, “”Broken English” is about growing up as a child of immigrants and watching the gut-wrenching reality of how immigrants are treated in this world come to fruition from an age that should be too young for that. It’s watching their accent get heckled, it’s seeing them being treated as “dumb”, knowing that their counterparts are getting promoted instead of them because they are “easier to understand”. It’s about every excuse that this version of America can sometimes make in an effort to ensure that no immigrant feels at home or accepted. But the thing is, this is still their home. That’s what this story is about. Regardless, this is still your home.”

As explored in the music video, she jumps through the portals of her own design right until the street lights flicker. Jumping is tied to shared childhood experiences, embodies connectivity and the chasmic leaps of growth in the Black womanly experience.” The music video is directed by Candice Hoyes who is a mixed media artist.

The inspiration behind it came from one of my favorite movies: Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet.

I’m not sure it always shakes out like that. In my experience, as you get to know someone, you slowly come closer to knowing. It boils down to making an active decision to choose someone or not. If not, you try to make a really painful, adult decision to move on, and you try to trust that it’s the right decision even when it’s hard. This song is about making that call.” The track is their first new single since their 2022 album, Sidelines.

FULL ALBUM PREMIERE: Love Gang Rivals 70s Rock Heavyweights On Mighty ‘Meanstreak’ Album

From Acclaimed producer (Sheryl Crow, The Dandy Warhols, Blitzen Trapper, Emmylou Harris)

Andrew of the band confides, “I was never afraid of dying until I had a child. Fading Moon, on the surface, seems like a love letter to my two baby boys. But, in reality, it’s a means to comfort myself from my overwhelming fear of leaving them behind when I die. When pure and intense love is experienced, there is a level of pain associated with it. I’ve never been more happy, but I’ve never been more scared. So this seemingly sweet, folky ditty is really a pretty dark, anxious proclamation.” Musically, the hypnotic guitar riff of “Fading Moon” was written when Dirk was in hospice care, visiting his sick mother. Performing for her brought her joy and “Fading Moon” also represents the magic and healing nature of music. Thanks for your consideration,

In a moment of clarity, the protagonist begins to climb out of the dark hole as they aim to understand what’s true and what isn’t, and makes a wavering attempt at optimism. In addition to the notable features, the album is primarily self-produced and self-recorded with drums and strings tracked by Julian Dreyer at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC. The rest of the album was recorded by the band in various home studios, later mixed by Matt Zutell at Coast Records and mastered by Dave Harris at Studio B.

“Green Goddess is about using plant based food to fight climate change. Whether it was the crazy hot summer, freezing cold winter or natural disasters, 2022 was filled with brutal reminders that climate change is real and now we’re all feeling it.
