Christina Schneider, the brainchild behind Locate S, 1 has signed to Captured Tracks who will release her sophomore album Personalia on April 3rd. She’s recently let go of the artful first single from the record, the title track “Personalia.” The track has a glossy atmospheric art rock feel to it with some dance-grooves that are bubbling just under the surface with some early colorful Of Montreal vibes, which makes sense as the album was produced by their very own Kevin Barnes.

Named after a poem by Mary Ruefle, “Personalia,” is a retelling of an emotional night in 2018 when she nearly quit. The track is a therapeutic triumphant that moves expertly with confidence and ease.

Find the music video for “Personalia” available to watch below and find the album available to pre-order at Bandcamp.

Sam Seeger has returned with his brand new single “The Day After an All-Nighter” and he’s given us the privilege of presenting the exclusive premiere of its awesome music video.

The track is a groovy and atmospheric rock effort that sounds like a spooky mix of Beck and The Strokes. This vibe is perfectly captured by Max Seeger of The Mayor of Bad News, who both produced and directed the video which was shot in his neighborhood in South Orange and features a cast of local artists and musicians.

Enjoy your first look at the music video for “The Day After an All-Nighter” below.

Tummyache – “Machine”

By Will Oliver, January 21st 2020

Last year saw Soren Bryce’s Tummyache release her debut EP Humpday (which the previously shared “Median” and “Commonplace” are also from.

The EP is chock full of big confident 90s esque garage rockers with a good mix of fuzzy guitar work and some passionate vocals that hit you straight in the old core.

This is very much the case with “Machine,” which just got an official music video treatment that so warmly captures the essence of the track.

Anna Burch will return with her sophomore album If You’re Dreaming, which will see its release via Polyvinyl Records on April 3rd.

Our first taste of the new record comes with single “Not So Bad.” It’s a lovely offering that has a ton of smart layers that are not immediate at first but work their way to the surface every second that the song goes on. It’s a mature step forward for the songwriter, who already proved to be quite the talent on her first go-around.

On January 31st Dan Deacon will return with his new album Mystic Familiar via Domino Records.

He’s recently released his second single from the album, “Become A Mountain,” a notable release as it’s the first time on record that Deacon has presented his natural singing voice, unprocessed and with minimal all-acoustic accompaniment.

The album was a personal one for Deacon, which makes this choice ring that much more true.

By Will Oliver, January 15th 2020

Boston duo Vundabar have announced that their new album Either Light will come out on March 13 via their own label Gawk Records.

Today the duo released the record’s first single, the very 80s-esque “Burned Off.” It’s got a light and fun appeal that notes a slight change in their sound but one that suits them very well.

Real Estate have been teasing the release of a new album for the better part of a year which makes today’s official news of their fifth album that much more exciting. It’s entitled The Main Thing and will be released on February 28th via Domino Records.

The band have also dropped first single “Paper Cup,” which features guest vocals from Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso. The track is a notable shift in direction for the band who take on a disco-groove and sees them lean a bit harder into their jammy tendencies. That clean polished Real Estate sound is still very much there but this is a nice evolution for their sound.
