INTERVIEW + PREMIERE: Maria Taylor of Flower Moon Records

Sometimes a new record has a familiarity to it that feels like curling up under a warm blanket. Flower Moon Records Compilation Friends and Family Vol 1 puts a listener at ease; its laid-back cadence urges you to close your eyes and relax. These are old friends reintroducing themselves. Dead Fingers' "Whistling Song" stands out as [...]

PREMIERE: Emma Hern’s Self-Titled Debut

Emma Hern is as grounded as they come. As a young musician, some might expect a bit more hesitation in a debut EP. Hern's self-titled freshman effort is slick and satisfying, drawing its inspiration from traditional rock and blues. "Then you held me tight / Almost every goddamn night / You whispered in my ear, [...]

PREMIERE: Lillian Frances, Timeism EP

Lillian Frances rolls with the punches. When she developed tendonitis, losing the ability to play guitar, she knew it was time for a shift musically. Her resulting sophomore EP Timeism is light-hearted romp on an electronic playground, made for early summer days by the pool. Like many artists nowadays, Frances is in tune with her image, [...]

INTERVIEW: Exitmusic on Their Final Bow

Photo Credit: Philistine DSG Exitmusic has always had a flair for the dramatic; between their music, with its wall of sound intensity, and their backstory (two teenagers meet on a train), it's easy to see scrolling credits at the end of each album. Their latest (and perhaps final) record gives fans the depth and [...]

INTERVIEW: Mima Good “Bad For Me”

Witches talk back nowadays. Raechel Rosen, aka Mima Good, walks an interesting tightrope thematically; her music weaves together the historical oppression of women with music that more readily brings to mind a candlelit boudoir. It's the playful banter between hi-concept undertones and sexuality that make her new EP Good Girl stand out. Raechel says her [...]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Sera EKE’s “White Room”

  It's hard to peg down Sera EKE. As a self-described "artist who self-produces, pretty much, everything - including music, video; photos, artwork"; her work comes in tidy packages, complete with stark, often terrifying imagery. Her new video for "White Room" follows previous incarnations of work from 2017's EP Coup Coup Coup! "My hands can't be trusted [...]

PREMIERE: Kim Anderson Debuts “Yarrow” LP

photo by Andreas Hofweber Debut albums are an interesting lot. Oftentimes, they're described as a "freshman effort" in an attempt to explain work that isn't fully realized. Sometimes, they are the product of years, finely tuned and immaculately coiffed, a near-perfect reflection of an artist coming into their own. Kim Anderson's debut album [...]

INTERVIEW: Alice Ivy Talks Dreamy Debut Ahead of SXSW

Photo by Dominik Schmarsel Much of the country is still in the midst of winter, but over in Australia, Alice Ivy is spinning summer all year round. Her debut record I'm Dreaming is a surreal pool party, hazy with liquor and puffs of the finer stuff - its collaged snippets could easily invite remixes by [...]

INTERVIEW: Dana Janssen of Dana Buoy on Ice Glitter Gold

Dana Bouy by Colton Major Dana Buoy is the current evolution of songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Dana Janssen, previously of Akron/Family. Janssen has teamed up with long-time collaborator Justin Miller on a record that's less folk and more beach party, a cool glass of water, instantaneously refreshing on a first listen. From the first rolling [...]
