New Rosali Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Trouble Anyway, the sophomore album Rosali Middleman, a.k.a. Rosali, recently crept across the horizon. Elegant, hypnotically soulful folk is on full display. With direct, heartfelt songwriting and soothing vocals, she navigates through delicate and treacherous instrumental landscapes, providing a textured and at times, mystical setting, one that is both serene and stirring to the psyche. Tonight, Johnny Brenda’s will be hosting Rosali's album release show, where she'll be supported by Daniel Bachman and Erin Rae.





Lala Lala "Destroyer"

Hardly Art just announced that they have signed Lala Lala and has released the video for their new single “Destroyer”. The single is taken from their forthcoming album The Lamb, which will be released on September 28th.

Lala Lala is primarily the work of London-raised and Chicago-based musician Lilli West. Over the last few years her supporting cast has evolved, and on this album she is joined by Emily Kempf (of Dehd and Vail) on bass/backup vocals and Ben Leach (of Drool) on drums.





Record of the Month: True Blue's "Edge Of" EP - live at Elsewhere on 08.15

Everything about True Blue requires a double-take. A cursory listen of the debut EP from Porches’ bassist turned solo artist reveals a palette that often overlaps with Aaron Maine’s patented brand of throwback electro-pop. It’s on second glance where Maya Laner’s version of pop morphs into uncanny, yet compelling ballads that dig into the flesh of listeners. Using imagery that invokes the more rustic parts of the United States, Edge Of detail filthy characters and depressing scenarios. “Rocky Bottom” is a quaint tune that gallops at a steady pace, but Laner’s chipmunk vocals give this somewhat kitsch song an unsettling sense of reality that is wonderfully uncomfortable. The rest of the EP could also double as muzak from educational videos from the '90s, but it’s the warping of this very distinct vibe into something simultaneously blissful and unnerving that makes Edge Of a release that rewards multiple listens. The artwork perfectly sums up the music of True Blue: a somewhat simplistic pose that reveals something disturbing about its immeasurable size and discomforting beauty. Laner will be performing at Elsewhere on August 15, and you can stream her EP below. -Tucker Pennington





New Track: "Too Much Time" - Stoops

Stoops recently shared a new track, “Too Much Time,” off their EP Singles. After a brief moment to find its sonic footing, the song rolls forward in joyous oddity. Pairing the bounce of percussion and keys with vocal harmonies, there’s a pleasant looseness to the recording. That head-in-the-clouds, daydream quality is temporarily interrupted by an audio interlude of hostility, provided by a Joe Pesci sample, before returning to its exuberant, brighter tones. Keep a look out for the band's debut full-length, The Syrup of Ipecac, and catch the quintet this Sunday, July 15 at The Barbary, supporting Sweet Moves and Cave Mode Shakes!





New Track: "Slick" - Rosie Thorne

Below is the debut single from Rosie Thorne, the new project from Mannequin Pussy's Marisa Dabice, Zach Sewall (Grave Goods, Vexxed), and Max Steen (Cold Fronts, Vexxed). "Slick" is the first of what will be a series of songs that the trio plans to release each month for the next year. Fleshing out the pop moments that are sometimes hinted in the Mannequin Pussy catalogue, Sewall and Steen once again team up to build an infectious, downtempo groove that perfectly complements the seductive lilt and thoughtful, shadowy prose that exudes from Dabice, creating an unexpectedly irresistible, electro-dance jam. We are already looking forward to Rosie Thorne's next installment, which really can't come soon enough for us.
