Deep Sea Peach Tree – “Haircut Confidence”

By Will Oliver, December 10th 2018

In August I was introduced to New York-based trio Deep Sea Peach Tree with their new single “Felt” and it’s equally effective b-side “Self-Portrait.”

The band had no plans of ending 2018 with just that release, as they returned on November 30 with their brand new 4-song EP Milk-​Based Religion.

“Haircut Confidence” is a jangly indie rocker with some groovy slacker vibes and garage rock fuzziness and interplay that they knock out of the park with confidence.

Enjoy a stream of the track below and find the entire EP available to stream and purchase at their Bandcamp.

Shy Shy Shy – “Doggystyle (Pretty Please)”

By Will Oliver, December 10th 2018

Swedish indie pop duo Shy Shy Shy have kept plenty busy this year with the release of their debut album Make Up as well as making songs for the new Danish TV series Doggystyle. We previously shared with you both “Sober” and “Joyride” from the show and today we share the video for the shows title track, “Doggystyle (Pretty Please).”

It’s a slick and confident electro-pop offering that is arguably one the bands biggest sounds to date, definitely leaning heavy in a smooth late night synth-pop territory.

Enjoy the video for “Doggystyle (Pretty Please)” below.

Henry Hall – “Missing Out on Purpose”

By Will Oliver, December 10th 2018

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Henry Hall has returned with new single “Missing Out on Purpose.” It’s a pretty yet heartbreaking slick of folk-driven pop with some slight r&b influence as well, that speaks to missing out on things because of anxiety and other fears.

The track showcases his incredible set of pipes and natural songwriting ability.

Enjoy the animated music video below, which was made by Miriam Cortez-Cáceres

Adam Melchor – “Real Estate”

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2018

Jersey-born singer-guitarist Adam Melchor now calls California home and bases his new single “Real Estate” off one of his first drives from New Jersey to California and when he realized he probably wouldn’t need the winter attire that he brought with him.

“Real Estate” is a beautiful folk song about “the personification of moving; moving to a place where you don’t know what’s going to happen, and moving from a place where you don’t know how much is going to be there if you come back.”

Enjoy a listen to the lovely “Real Estate” below.

Margot – “Coffee Stained Scars”

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2018

Margot is a newly formed band from South Loncharmswho have released their latest single “Coffee Stained Scars,” which they say was inspired by Lady Bird – which just so happens to be my favorite film of 2017.

They have this easy-going dream-pop sound that calls to mind some of the suburban charm of bands like Real Estate, led by the charming and smooth lead vocals of singer Alex Hannaway.

The Lady Bird inspiration came from a scene in the film where “a mother’s drive between work and home is the only time in her day when she’s not serving others, creating a time of contemplation.”

Margot’s sound feels fully fleshed out, accomplished, and very much their own on this outstanding single. Enjoy a stream of “Coffee Stained Scars” below and stay tuned for more from these guys very soon.

Noah Chenfeld – “Wind Speed”

By Will Oliver, December 6th 2018

Local New Yorker Noah Chenfeld has returned with a fantastic raw performance of his new song “Wind Speed.”

The track has an old NYC folk styling that Chenfeld confidently molds into his own, with a fitting video showing him performing the track live, paired with other visuals of him and New York. This a different sound that we are used to from Chenfeld, but it’s a welcome mature approach that shows a bright promising future for the songwriter.

Enjoy the video for “Wind Speed” below and kick off the New Year strong by catching Chenfeld’s live performance at Mercury Lounge on January 9th. Tickets are available to purchase here.

Yola – “Ride Out In The Country”

By Will Oliver, December 2nd 2018

If you don’t know the name Yola, it’s ok, it’s only a matter of time until that is corrected. Yola’s journey has taken her from living homeless on the streets of London, to joining Massive Attack, opening for James Brown and then to Dan Auerbach’s Nashville recording studio where he co-wrote and produced her album with old school session players.

Her debut album Walk Through Fire will be out on February 22 via Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound label and today we have her fantastic single “Ride Out In The Country.”

There’s just a naturality to her voice that absolutely fills your heart and the easy-going country vibe feels natural to her voice and a perfect pairing with the songwriting and production talents of Auerbach who clearly has help steer her in the right direction with this fantastic offering.
