If you’re gonna be a rock ‘n’ roller you could do worse than being born on the same date as Elvis Aaron Presley and David Robert Jones. Actually, scratch that. You can’t do better than sharing a birthday with the King and the Starman. And on January 8th, music fans at the Mercury Lounge got to wish both of those legends and New York’s own Fiona Silver another wonderful trip around the sun.

By Will Oliver, January 13th 2019

The Killers’ Dave Keuning, is preparing for the release of his debut solo album (as Keuning) Prismism on January 25, 2019. Back in November, we got to hear Keuning play some of the new songs for the first time at Mercury Lounge, including some of the previously released singles that we’ve already shared: “Prismism,” “Restless Legs” and “Boat Accident.”

Today we return with the fourth release, the ballad-like “The Queen’s Finest.” It takes a simple approach but that’s part of the charm which makes it a warm and welcoming listen.

Enjoy the official music video for the song below, which was directed by Russell Sheaffer.

Beauty Queen – “Goner”

By Will Oliver, January 6th 2019

Beauty Queen is the project of San Francisco musician Katie Iannitello, who has taped into the nostalgic vision of vintage dreampop on her debut single “Goner.”

She worked on the song alongside Henry Nowhere (who is also in Day Wave) and his influence is all over the hazy dreamy nature of the song that instantly warms your heart and never lets go. It’s quite a debut offering.

The song will be featured on her debut EP The Out of Touch, which will be released sometime later this year via Sleep Well Records.
