“Running With The Wolves” by Daniel Robinson

In anticipation for his sophomore EP Guesswork, due out in June, electropop-songwriter, Daniel Robinson, has released his latest single “Running With The Wolves.” Always one to write with no filter, Robinson addresses a self-destructive lover, their accompanying paramours (aka “the wolves”), and makes it clear that he does it better by himself.

Of the new album, Robinson says, “The whole theme of this EP is very glitchy, like an old videogame that doesn’t quite work the way it’s supposed to anymore, which all relates back to the subject matter of the record itself which is about becoming comfortable without control, risk and reward, and the unknown.

This Buffalo native’s signature is deep-space instrumentals and airy vocals. He is also versed in acoustic guitar and ukulele. Lately he has been heavily inspired by the writing styles of LIGHTS and Bjork and the ethereal Lo-fi sound of Now Now.

“Surfboard Balcony” by Déjà Mae

Songwriter, Déjà Mae, released her debut album, Through the Half-Dark, on April 9, 2013. Mae not only sings, but she also plays acoustic guitar and piano. Her style is influenced by some of her favorite artists, including Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Sr., Billie Holiday and Led Zeppelin.

As the daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt-man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Mae traveled from location to location growing up. As a little girl, she fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film Dances with Wolves where Mae would get her first taste of performing. She continued to participate in the ‘family business’ throughout her adolescence, but soon she branched out into other areas of creativity, such as music.
