01.09: Willow Stephens celebrates debut LP at the Troubadour

Willow Stephens dropped her debut LP All That Glitters today, and will celebrate with a show at The Troubadour on January 9th as part of the venue's Sound Collective Showcase. The Montana native has come up in the LA scene over the past few years, having released her first EP back in 2017 and changing from an acoustic sound to something more pop-oriented during her time down south. But despite her musical shift, Stephens has retained her strong talent for writing captivating words to deliver in her airy, angelic voice. Head to the Troubadour to hear it for yourself on 1/9 when Stephens performs alongside Miette Hope, Lucy Walsh, and Michelle Vezilj. Take a listen to the lead track from All That Glitters, titled "Gold", below. - Will Sisskind

Mousa ushers in nostalgia in new record "Mousatron X"

If you are in the nostalgic mood most of us are in after the decade came to a less-than-spectacular end, then we recommend a surefire stimulant: Maine’s Mousa has just released Mousatron X, a solid record worth the six-year wait. The album is a short treat that hits all the right spots as it fluctuates from galactic-noise themes like those in the opener “Silent In” to bedroom pop/psych-infused synth swells that complement a sonorous croon. The record captures the intimacy and infinity of its concept: the music found in tracks like “Cower” drains into the listener’s mind to create nostalgic images so infinite. Stream the delicate balance of grand sounds and homely vocals that is the album’s closing track “In Between Dreams” below. Happy New Year, New England! - Rene Cobar





Oddysseys debut year-end dreampop dual singles, play Lilypad Inman 12.28

Boston’s Oddysseys are delighting this December with a dual single release sure to catch your attention. “Testimony” and “Goon” complement one another with their lo-fi edge and dreampop sheen displayed at different tempos—both equally satisfying. The speedy pace of the drums in “Testimony” create along with sparkling-lingering guitar chords, a retro soundscape that brings out the brightest colors of ‘80s dreampop while finishing with light strokes of modern indie rock. “Goon” is far more atmospheric a track, yet its fat groove is undeniable as a voluptuous bassline drives the song into the euphoric breakdowns that characterize Oddysseys. The vocal delivery on both tracks should also be noted: “Goon” displays a softer and more sensitive tone while “Testimony” a confident baritone. Both singles stand on their own just fine, but together they are part of a greater work that demands it be appreciated as a whole. The band is set to perform at Lilypad Inman in Cambridge, MA, on December 28th. Stream the singles below for a ticket to a dreamworld rich in character. - Rene Cobar





Wyatt Blair releases new power-pop EP "For The First Time"

Though Wyatt Blair's new EP For The First Time has come out just weeks before the start of a new decade, it has a power pop sound which smacks heavily of sound from decades long since passed. A track like "Boys Night Out" has a touch of Springsteen with a guitar riff that sounds like "Rosalita" and pounding toms from "Candy's Room". "Cherry Rose" has hints of Pat Benatar and Ratt in its cross between glam metal and early Eighties new wave. And "Fear To Fight" picks up the speed with a bit of proto-punk from bands like The Cars. Even though Blair takes a lot from the music of the previous generation, there's plenty on For The First Time to please listeners in the generations of today. Take a listen to "Boys Night Out" below. - Will Sisskind
