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.
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!
Cyril Hahn has waved his magic wand over Yumi Zouma‘s recent single “Keep It Close To Me”, elevating the quietly sweet original into a shimmering summer pop gem.
Yumi Zouma’s new album Yoncalla is out now on Cascine.
We have been avid fans of Psychic Twin for years now and at long last, we have new music from the project of the beautiful Erin Fein! “Lose Myself” is the first single taken from the long anticipated debut album Strange Diary, out this fall on Polyvinyl. We are thrilled to report that the track was well worth the wait. Give it a spin…
Strange Diary is out September 9 on Polyvinyl.
I’m a sucker for catchy, throwback garage rock and buzzing Brooklyn band The Britanys serve it up in heaps on their new single “Get My”. Fittingly, the track was produced by Gordon Raphael, the mastermind responsible for The Strokes’ classic debut album Is This It?. Give it a spin!
Catch The Britanys when they play Out In The Streets Fest alongside the likes of TEEN, Honduras, Frankie Rose, & many more in Ridgewood, Queens on July 17.
