Within - "Young" EP and Music Video

Within is an alt/indie folk trio out of Toronto. Or “freak folk” as they say. They play dark, stripped down folk tunes. Definitely leaving plenty of space on the canvas which is a pleasant change to what we are probably used to hearing on a regular basis. The vocalist is rather enchanting with a trippiness to her voice that reminds me of Grace Slick or Dolores O’Riordan. They recently released an EP “Young” and below is the title track first single. – Kris Gies





New Track: "I’d Like to Thank The Academy" - Hafsol

“I’d Like to Thank The Academy,” the new single from Hafsol, a.k.a. Dylan Penna-Powell, develops an airy pensive setting before a percussive beat propels it into motion. Poetic lines flow at a laidback pace. The steer of the groove and the gradual fade of backing vocals washes over in a pleasant drift, intertwined with its hip-hop cadence. Lyrically, this feels layered with significance, while simultaneously retaining free association.





Anna Agosta @ Beat Kitchen (6/21)

Anna Agosta may be one of the most underrated musician in the city today. Last Fall she released her debut Ep, “Greenhouse”, which featured the standout single, “Never Fall” (video below). Through out the five songs on the EP, Agosta demonstrated powerful, soulful vocals and an ear for talented production partners. We are eagerly awaiting her next release and strongly feel that more of the city should be as well.

You can catch Anna Agosta on June 21st at Beat Kitchen opening for Emily Blue and LA’s Tim Atlas.

Will Dailey brings introspective folk to Bath Heritage Fest in Maine (6.30)

Boston singer-songwriter Will Dailey makes the type of introspective, feel-good folk that sticks in your thoughts. The single “It Already Would Have Not Worked Out By Now” (streaming below) off of his most recent album Golden Walker, released June 1, only further proves his ability to stay relevant as a songwriter. The melodic track is reminiscent of Vance Joy in style, but with a baroque build that is undeniably that of Will Dailey. Fresh off a string of local Boston shows, Dailey is now on his way to play the Bath Heritage Festival in Bath, Maine on June 30. After that, he will be hitting Nextival in Crownsville, Maryland on July 14. - Lilly Milman





Record of the Month: Renata Zeiguer "Old Ghost" - release party at Elsewhere 06.20

On first listen, the songs and sounds of Renata Zeiguer’s debut album Old Ghost are deceivingly simple. Indie rock influences clash with her delicate voice in interesting if not straightforward ways. Yet there’s an appealing aspect of Old Ghost that continues to draw the listener in as she paints an image of the world that is filled with naturally occurring voids that are at once brutal and beautiful. Her voice feels equally morose and triumphant as she explores themes of identity and loss. Nature also plays a large role in the Zeiguer’s lyrics; cosmic elements of our world like the moon and the mundane creatures who inhabit it both haunt and captivate the singer. These poetic lyrics burrow themselves in her ethereal voice and unfold in expansive and cathartic moments as the production swerves from angular to harmonious. Old Ghost is an album that burns softly if heard in the background but illuminates brightly when it is lived with. The entire record can be streamed below and you can hear Zeiguer perform at Elsewhere on June 20. - Tucker Pennington
