The track is one of 12 off of their upcoming album Familiar Fevers mixed and mastered by Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, As Tall as Lions). The album is due out this spring.

Singer-songwriter Justin Dzuban is preparing to release his LP, Shakedown, on June 17th, 2014. In addition, he’s premiering the title track as his sultry new single on Soundcloud.
The song is driven by his baritone voice and accompanied by soulful back-up vocals, a rhythm guitar that steers an off-beat swagger and upbeat dynamic, and a fat and live sounding drum-kit.

NYC-based singer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter, Michael Goodman (aka Goodman), recently released a digital full-length album, Isn’t It Sad. It is the follow-up to late 2012’s What We Want. The album was recorded at Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen in Brooklyn.
The 12 tracks on this album are biting songs unafraid of their own emotional importance. If you’re immune to melody and a fan of lyrics about nights where the fun never stops, stay away from this album. If you hate having songs stuck in your head, stay away from this album. If you’re afraid of sincerely caring about an artist more than just his trend potential, good lord, stay away.
Have a listen the the album track “Longing” below.

Singer-songwriter, Sonali Argade, recently released her new music video for “Who We Are,” the single off her new EP, Wake Up.
Argade’s writing style and musical tastes have evolved since her last release in 2012, titled Speechless. Some of her growth as an artist can be attributed to her attendance at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Plus, some has to do with experiencing the Big Apple.
Wake Up was released in February of this year. The album is an eclectic mix of folky pop-rock, reminiscent of both Mumford & Sons and Colbie Caillat.
Dedicated studies, including jazz guitar at the Players School of Music, Berklee College of Music’s Five Week Summer Performance Program for Voice, and her current studies at NYU have propelled Sonali’s knowledge and ambitions. In addition, she is armed with an arsenal of raw talent, technical know-how and resilient focus.
