“A Rainy Week in Paradise” by Elessar Thiessen

The latest effort from Winnipeg-based, singer-songwriter Elessar Thiessen was released on June 10 and is titled A Rainy Week in Paradise.

"Out of the Dark" by Shane Tutmarc

Some may know Shane Tutmarc as the front man for the Seattle-based indie-pop band Dolour, which featured Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes). After packing up Dolour in 2010, Tutmarc moved to Nashville, where he refined his sound, blending garage-rock, folk, blues, country, gospel and pop to create an Americana flavor that pays homage to its […]

“Sirens” by Hydrogen Child

Shreveport, Louisiana-based, shimmer-pop band, Hydrogen Child (formerly Super Water Sympathy), have released the song “Sirens” as their new single.

Influenced as much by the cypress and bayou surroundings of Caddo Parish as their love of the soundscapes of Sigur Ros and the 80s-influenced alt-pop of The Killers, Hydrogen Child blends electronic sheen with rock n’ roll […]

Six-time San Diego Music Award nominee, Gayle Skidmore, is following up her latest full-length and coloring book combo Sleeping Bear (winner of the “Best Pop Album” in the 2014 San Diego Music Awards) with two new songs, live staples that have been requested by fans to be able to purchase: “Rag Doll” and “Barrel, Trigger, […]

“Pickup Lines” by Mishka Shubaly

Tomorrow, February 3, 2015, Mishka Shubaly will release his third full-length album, Coward’s Path, a document of his wasted years. It is twelve tracks of drinking songs, snapshots from a life careening out of control. Somehow, it’s also funny.

He recorded the bare bones of the album on an 8-track reel-to-reel in an unheated, condemned […]
