New Track: "Indifferent Belushi" - Steady Hands

Truth In Comedy is the forthcoming album from Steady Hands, featuring ex-Modern Baseball drummer Sean Huber in the forefront. Due out on October 19 via Lame-O Records, “Indifferent Belushi,” the lead single from the Brian McTear-produced album, begins with spright keys and a personal admission. Off and running on close to empty, the melodic tune taps into a recollection of attempting to get lost in distractions, partying, etc. and not feeling satisfied. There’s a multifaceted, pleasantly-inviting casualness to the anthem, with a chorus that naturally bookends the summer.

Mother Feather returns with "Red Hot Metal" single + show at BK Bazaar on 09.29

The project of glamorous alt rock vocalist Ann Courtney and keyboardist/singer Elizabeth Carena, Mother Feather is a band born to be on a stage. Active since 2009, the group is approaching their ten year anniversary with a new single entitled "Red Hot Metal" (streaming below) and a show at Brooklyn Bazaar on September 29th. The song, a tense yet sparse post-grunge track resting on Ann Courtney's solid alto, is among the best material the band has released so far, and will hopefully be followed by a full album (no mention of it at this stage). The band will perform live at Brooklyn Bazaar on September 29th.

New Waxahatchee EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Named after a previous project that Katie Crutchfield had started with former Swearin’ bassist Keith Spencer, Great Thunder, the new EP from Waxahatchee, is out now via Merge Records. The sparse, piano-anchored instrumentation directs the light onto the sincerity of Crutchfield’s vocals/lyrics. One is comforted by the familiar folk setting, as a thoughtful, meditative solace the whirlwind of news from the outside world. Waxahatchee is set to perform at World Café Live on Friday, September 28, as part of Philly Music Fest.

Sister Sparrow releases "Gold" from upcoming LP, tours the US

A staple of the NYC resurging soul scene, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds have been churning out soul music in all its possible variations for almost two decades now. After two live albums that are a testament to the group's fierce live performances, the group returns with a shortened moniker (just Sister Sparrow) and a new sound that takes their nu-soul in a more produced and sophisticated direction. Single Gold (streaming) is a preview of the artist's upcoming album, scheduled for an October 12th release, and it makes the most of Arleigh Kincheloe's larger than life vocals, carving space around them with shrewdly sparse production by Carter Matschullat.
In support of "Gold," Sister Sparrow is currently on a major U.S. tour, including several festivals and an appearance supporting Nathaniel Rateliff. New Yorkers will have a chance to see them live at Irving Plaza on December 1st.
