Kadhja Bonet - Delphine


Improvisation and extemporaneous flow are practices that, by definition, shun a blueprint. That Kadhja Bonet is able to emulate that unconstrained sentiment in her newest single while maintaining meticulous control of every note might be her greatest sleight of hand yet. "Delphine" is a song established on the thickest of bass lines while also leaning heavily on Bonet’s hazy, hypnotizing vocals. Weaved in the midst of her retro psychedelia, though, is an amazing ear for the tiniest details: watch for the drum entrance and its corresponding echoes, the careful use of harmony throughout, the atmospheric arpeggios and the slowly building lyrical narrative. Bonet’s sophomore album will be released this spring in conjunction with Anderson .Paak’s OBE.

Winter - Zoey

Winter - Zoey


Winter, fronted by songwriter Samira Winter, just released their newest album, Ethereality. “Zoey,” the third track on the record, is an uplifting, dreamy track that repeats “I feel alive where you are” like a gentle mantra. The individual instruments pop their heads up from the bright wave of that shoegaze sound every now and again to add a playful riff or an optimistic line. The band certainly succeeds in their goal of connecting people to their inner children with their music, as this track has that distinct feeling of a carefree spring day spent outside with someone you truly love. It’s like a daydream, or a time warp that takes you back to much simpler times.

Aisha Burns - Must Be A Way

Aisha Burns - Must Be A Way


Overwhelmed by the death of her mother and the start of a new relationship, Aisha Burns sings of ineffable turmoil in “Must Be A Way.” The stunning four-minute track, which takes inspiration from the vast West Texas desert, is anchored by Burns’ powerful yet vulnerable voice. A careful and beautiful violin arrangement blossoms and shifts around her words, providing a rich emotional landscape to an already heartrending song.

Aisha Burns’ second full-length, Argonauta, releases May 25 via Western Vinyl.

Eliza Shaddad - White Lines

Eliza Shaddad - White Lines


Eliza Shaddad’s long-anticipated debut album is finally on its way — and quite worth the wait. “White Lines,” the stunning first single off of Future, begins as a melodic dream-pop confection and then gradually unfolds into an expansive indie-rock ballad. “If I drive away, far from you, can I get free from this?” Shaddad’s captivating voice meanders like the short white tally marks on the highway. How many must we pass to out-travel the past and the present? The London songstress spends five minutes exploring this sentiment in a lush musical landscape. We couldn’t be more excited about Future.

Shlomo Franklin - Don't Love Anybody

Shlomo Franklin - Don't Love Anybody


Shlomo Franklin explores the unknown landscape of moving on in his new single. “Don’t Love Anybody” is the title track off of the New York-based singer-songwriter’s debut EP. Franklin’s broken voice cries above a twinkly and marchlike arrangement. “I can take sleeping pills/  I don’t need you to help me sleep at night/ I can even learn to live without you/ But please don’t love anybody else,” he pleads, acknowledging an often unspoken human fear: that someone with whom we have shared the depths and reaches of our experience could share that with someone new. The song, beginning with a sweet guitar part, reaches a musical and emotional high as strings soar, tremolo-heavy electric guitar moans and Franklin meditates on the sentiment of the song. “Please don’t love anybody else,” he repeats time and time again. Don’t Love Anybody comes out May 18. Until then, enjoy this saccharine and sad gem.

David Urbinati - Overtake Me

David Urbinati - Overtake Me


West Palm Beach, FL native, David Urbinati recently released his first full-length album, WAVE.S, a collection of music that depicts his own emotional waves through song. "Overtake Me" is the first single off the album, with a mixture of buoyant electronic vibes and a message of self-empowerment, David creates a sound that is raw without being heavy. It's both an earnest and refreshing take on a song of self-empowerment and within it lies a steady mantra of overcoming rather than be overtaken. "I feel the fight is getting older/ Still I won't let it overtake me." Be sure to check out this song and the rest of his album on all streaming platforms.

Holm - Hope

Holm - Hope


Mikkel Holm-Silkjær of Holm may only be 23 years old, but he’s already had an impressive musical career including collaborations with Brooch, Fright Eye, Happy Hookers For Jesus, Urban Achievers and Yung. However, this is an entirely solo project, with only his hands to touch each and every step of the process. You know that it’s extremely personal to him because he’s used his own name, and has created a sprawling yet concise track that’s difficult to define. He doesn’t exactly follow your “typical” modern song structure. The bones of this song are more along the lines of a classical composition, with themes and motifs placed with delicate intention. Still, it’s got crashing, cymbal-heavy drums, contrasted with catchy melodic phrases. Everything ties together with an undeniable force of energy that breathes through the whole song. This is the first track off of Holms’ debut album Dappled EP for Tough Love Records, which will be released May 4.

Juan Solorzano - Should've Been You

Juan Solorzano - Should've Been You


Nashville's Juan Solorzano is a jack of all trades. While he's usually producing or playing on tracks for artists such as Molly Parden and Becca Mancari, the release of his new song "Should've Been You" makes him the one who's front and center. "Should've Been You" organically exists in a world full of rhythmic precision, instrumental experimentations and layered harmonies that can only be created by a true song-crafter. With the common theme of a faulty romance coupled with talk of "taking trips to the nebula" one could say that there are elements of magical realism within this song making it seem multi-dimensional but yet still intrinsic. Grab your headphones for this one and see just why it's the kind of hidden treasure we love to discover around here.

morgxn - carry the weight

morgxn - carry the weight


Morgxn's "Carry the Weight" is an uplifting and hopeful anthem for anyone that needs a pick-me-up. The track, released a few weeks ago via wxnderlost records, makes a strong case for pushing through, sticking with your gut and making your own way in the world. A simple, but powerful message. Similarly, Morgxn's Soundcloud bio gets straight to the point: "no struggle = no process"; a powerful reminder that experiencing adversity may help us learn, grow and prosper.

Father John Misty - Mr. Tillman

Father John Misty - Mr. Tillman


Everyone's favorite outspoken folk-rocker, Father John Misty, has returned from a brief stint out of the limelight with a new album, God's Favorite Customer, his first release since 2017's highly political Pure Comedy. The full album was erroneously released by Apple Music the day after the announcement, a fuck-up that FJM took in stride by acknowledging it via meme on his official Facebook page, but three new tracks still remain available to the public. One of the three, the eponymous "Mr. Tillman," is a slight departure from the typical Father John sound, which frequently includes verbose storytelling unencumbered by a song's meter. "Mr. Tillman" still tells a story, one of an interaction between Tillman and a hotel front desk clerk, but Father John Misty turns a corner here by submitting to song structure and the results are quite savory. That, paired with his perfect smoky voice, brings us the makings of a modern folk-rock classic.
