Kentucky based newcomer Willie Breeding will release his debut album of beguiling, off-kilter Americana Big Sky in early 2018.  With influences ranging from Lee Hazlewood to The Strokes, Marty Robbins to A Tribe Called Quest, Big Sky is first and foremost an album of well-crafted tunes. The melodies are rich and wavy, complementing well the lyrics of someone torn between their years in New York City, and their generations in Kentucky.

The first single from the album is the excellent Prague Spring featuring guest vocal from MM fave Caitlin Rose.

 

Holly Miranda will release a new album in February next year, her first new material since 2015.

The first taste is in the form of the hazy, slow burn of Exquisite that also features Kyp Malone from TV On The Radio.

Stream it below.

 

In 2014 The Men side-project Dream Police released their excellent debut LP Hypnotized, toured extensively, and ultimately, as side projects tend to work, they returned focus to their primary band.

Fortunately, after three years wait, they got together recently and recorded a brand new single. Revenge.

Happily too, their signature use of the Roland 707 drum machine, the driving but psychedelic bass line, the droning organ, the dizzying guitar leads, and haunting vocals are all there on the single too, just as they always have been.

Have a listen.

Some musical films and lyric videos. They’re good.

Phoebe Bridgers has shared Funeral, another haunting and introspective track from her upcoming debut album Stranger In The Alps.

Brooklyn post-punk duo NØMADS have released their August single Phasmophøbia (the fear of ghosts or the paranormal).

The band is in the midst of their conceptual Phøbiac project, wherein they release a new song about clinical phobia-based fears. The project is going to be split into two EP’s, Phøbiac Part 1, which’ll be out in October, with Part 2 to follow in early 2018.

Featuring swirling, long-form synth improvisation, and man vs machine drums, Phasmophøbia tells the story of an ex-lover, haunting the streets of the paranoid narrator’s daily world.

 

Soft Fangs is the musical project of Brooklyn-based songwriter, John Lutkevich. We’ve featured him a couple of times, but never with a tune as good as this one. Honey Colony drips around the ears in a completely beguiling and seductive manner, melding the story of a bee with that of a workaholic.

It is taken from forthcoming album Fractures (out on the 1st September). Influences like Sparklehorse, Leonard Cohen and Pavement melt together to form a scuzzy tangle – while literary inspiration comes from the magical realism of author Gabriel Garcia Marquez and avant-garde poet Robert Creeley.

Wonderful stuff. Have a listen.
