“Alligator Swamp Monster”
A DIY inspired bedroom blues-rocker, Kip Macklejar adds a nostalgic punch of garage rock with an entertaining and satirical lyrical style. Produced and performed entirely by Kip out of a bedroom studio in Copenhagen, the track quickly gained Spotify playlist attention. Stay tuned for the upcoming lyric video.
“Last Days of the Dark Age”
From the Album Forces of Nature
After a 2.5 year hiatus spent sailing the western Caribbean, Colin Lake returns with the new album Forces of Nature—a record as timely as it is timeless.
From the EP Old Girl
Two-time Blues Music Award winner Lisa Mann lives in blues-soaked Portland, Ore. Originally from West Virginia, her voice effortlessly straddles the line between the honey-sweet warmth of the South and the force-of-nature sound she’s cultivated by mastering everything from hard rock to blues & soul.
Marking her transition from poetic Americana to poignant electro-organic pop, Brit Drozda’s Seashells & Stories EP (Out Oct. 9) mulls the connections that stretch & strain between us with singular melodicism & rare lyrical lucidity. The 6-song collection is produced by Scott Jacoby (Coldplay, Vampire Weekend).
“Sure Feels Right”
From the album Three Reasons
Nashville based songwriter, Mike Thomas, released his first studio LP, “Three Reasons,” in June 2020. Drawing from a wide range of influences, Thomas’ raw vocals couple with his carefully crafted, yet accessible lyrics giving his songs a nostalgic feel that listeners can’t help but connect with.
Him + Her Worship
From the Album Even in the Dark
Based out of Minneapolis, husband and wife Seth and Jenna Herlich now live on the road full-time, towing their 13 foot camper around the country. With a passion for adventure and a calling to create, the duo leads narrative-driven worship nights to audiences in dozens of US cities.
“Can’t Be Swayed (No More)“
Nate Newburn issues a powerful indictment against injustice on his debut album. Melding African rhythms, aggro acoustic guitars and subversive poetry, Lazarburn spits out a damning indictment of our troubled world while celebrating the beauty of nature and the goodness of the human spirit.
From the album BBsitters Club & Party
Chicago-based quartet BBsitters Club blur the line between tongue-in-cheek rock parody, improvised jams, and tightly sculpted prog. Their debut album BBsitters Club & Party locks you in the basement practice space and asks you to hallucinate a “new classic rock” by huffing the ashes of the old.
“Summer of George”
From the EP Spring 3-3-3
Summer of George is a slice of sophisticated pop from this eclectic Minneapolis trio. Written and recorded remotely at the beginning of COVID lockdown and released 3 weeks before the tragic murder of George Floyd, this wistful tune of lost connections became a soundtrack for the summer that was/wasn’t.
“Futures and Goodbyes”
From the album Days Without Incident
T-Rex Marathon are a post-hardcore/Alt-rock band out of Ottawa, Ontario. They’re five dudes whose mission is to have a lot of fun and make some good music to help us all escape the demons. If you like fun, melodic, and energetic music then you have to check them out and see what’s happening!
