Calliope Musicals – “Cosmic Poison Arrow”

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Calliope Musicals is a wild party band out of Austin who are led by singer-songwriter Carrie Fussell and have earned some high prise for their live shows.

They’ve since signed to Rhyme & Reason Records and released their colorful single “Cosmic Poison Arrow.”

The cotton candy coated indie pop offering is almost like a female-led Danielson if they went on a sonic journey into space, full of its own unique energy that is pure and uncompromised. It’s a joy to listen to and makes me eager to see what they got for us next. One can only imagine how much fun it would be to hear this song live at one of their shows.

Take a listen to “Cosmic Poison Arrow” via the official music video, which is posted below.

Cathedrals – “Just A Game”

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Last week saw San Francisco-based synth-pop duo Cathedrals release their new single “Just a Game. They’re calling it their darkest track to date and it’s hard to argue with them.

The duo of Brodie Jenkins & Johnny Hwin work in tandem to create a haunting ethereal late-night offering that soars in a chilly fashion that evokes plenty of emotions and the listener’s senses. It may be their very best offering to date.

You can stream “Just A Game” below and grab it for free here.

Charlene Soraia will release her new album Where’s My Tribe on January 25 via Peacefrog Records. If it’s anything like two of the albums’s singles, “Now You Are With Her” and “Tragic Youth,” it will be a good one.

The British singer-songwriter reminds of acts like Laura Marling with her fragile vocal work and guitar playing that all add up to something quite personal and touching. All the songs on the LP were recorded by Charlene in her flat with no edits, no autotune, and in one take, revealing the raw, pure beauty of the music. And that raw passion is felt throughout these passion-fueled tracks.

Find a stream of both “Now You Are With Her” and “Tragic Youth” below

Western Australia’s Stella Donnelly, who we last caught in March for her New York debut, returned to Brooklyn’s Elsewhere (Zone One) for another headlining show. In addition to selections from her superb Thrush Metal EP (recently reissued via Secretly Canadian), she showcased some newer material that, presumably, will be included in an upcoming full-length debut LP. Suffice it to say, we’re eagerly awaiting that album’s release and her eventual return stateside.

For the Stella Donnelly setlist—as well as a photo gallery of Stella Donnelly and openers Human People, and Fits—continue below.
