Maybe I’m just in a California vibe since I just spent the last week camping in the high Sierras, but the new single from Oakland, California’s Trails And Ways has me feeling pretty giddy today. The super cute and clever video for the track is also pretty irresistible.

Trails And Ways are releasing their sophomore lp Own It on October 7.

We’ve been following the amazing blues singer-songwriter Breanna Barbara for just over two years now when she quietly arrived on the scene in NYC. We heard a demo and booked her for a low-key Sunday afternoon show. Low-key went out the door when she took the stage and played a very raw, powerful set. That voice! And now, here we are – the release of her phenomenal debut album Mirage Dreams. Just take a listen to the blistering opening track “Sailin’ Sailin'”. That’s all.

Mirage Dreams is out now. Get it on Bandcamp.

EZTV – High Flying Faith (ft. Jenny Lewis)


NYC band EZTV are a great band. We caught them live when they opened for TSR fave Beverly a couple months ago and we were instantly taken with their tight, breezy sound. The band are set to release their sophomore album High In Place this fall and here we have the first single, which features Jenny Lewis on vocals. Catch EZTV when they play the Out In The Streets Festival in Ridgewood, Queens on July 17th (Beverly are also playing the fest the day before).

High In Place is out September 30 on Captured Tracks.

Spritzer is the great side project of Friend Roulette’s Matthew Meade. You may remember when we praised his debut ep last year. “Dead” is another great single that just pops off. Give it a spin!
