Tatum Gale's "Crocodilian" is a warm-blooded ode to love

It’s hard not to smile when listening to “Crocodilian,” a self-described “little indie bop” by Brooklyn synthpop artist Tatum Gale. It’s an accurate descriptor, given the track’s shuffling measure, it’s kitschy, bright keys, and Gale’s honest lyricism about relationships and, well, crocodiles. The track is accompanied by a music video that’s equally heartfelt, with the artist hitchhiking his way around the city with the help of a friendly anthropomorphized croc; while the visual is silly, it demonstrates Gale’s willingness to bare his soul in a way that’s truly genuine and unabashedly fun. Watch it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

New Music Video: "Weird Little Idea" - Radiator Hospital

We're excited to hear that Radiator Hospital is set to release a new LP, titled Music for Daydreaming, on May 10 via Salinas Records. On the latest album, the project's mastermind Sam Cook-Parrott has decided to take on all the instrumental duties, which is reflected in his new video for the record's lead single, "Weird Little Idea," directed by Adam Peditto. The footage appears to have been captured in the intimate confines of the First Unitarian Church's Side Chapel. Radiator Hospital is heading out on tour in May with Big Nothing in support of Music for Daydreaming, and will be returning home to PhilaMOCA on Tuesday, May 21 for the album's Philly release celebration. 





Ewe Dew's dynamic nature reigns on "Suspine Butterfly"

A rawness permeates the entirety of Supsine Butterfly, the debut full length by Brooklyn trio Ewe Dew. It’s a product of the band’s instrumentation, which veers from traditional folk punk into mathy, off-kilter acoustic segues on a dime, as well as the raw lyricism of frontman Christian Brion. Standout track “Wild Oats” is a pertinent example of Ewe Dew’s strengths, beginning with an antique metaphor of youth before transition to an impassioned, stream of consciousness narrative, highlighted by track’s shifting time signature and modulation between electric and acoustic textures. These dynamic changes make for engaging listening on Suspine Butterfly, and promises even more experimentation on Ewe Dew’s forthcoming second LP Birds Alight, dropping later this spring. Until then, stream them below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

New Ben Loomis EP Available for Streaming & Download

Ben Loomis is the recording project of Matt Roth. Roth’s recent collaboration with Pulgas’s Simon Martinez resulted in the EP Hoss Flat, a small but robust collection of songs released back in December. Frogs picks up from where Roth left off, inviting the listener into an array of modest pop tunes that exhibit slick grooves, crisp production, and a sophisticated sonic palette. Each track begins with a hook, immediately drawing you in and spurring a curiosity to hear out how the songs will evolve. The EP showcases Roth’s uncanny ability to explore genre conventions with a lucidity that gracefully lands each musical leap of faith; each track continually advances into new territories without feeling like the narrative is being stretched too thin. Perfect music to soundtrack a winter thaw, a refreshing burst of sunlight amidst the anticipation of spring. (Photo by Sarah Milberger)  - Josh Kelly





Songwriter Nicole Jackson releases EP "Radio Silence"

You might pass a hundred singer-songwriters in the Music City every day, whether they're lawyers, cashiers, or even your best friend who has a secret diary which you don't know about. Often times, they're university students, as is the case with Nicole Jackson. The Portland-born singer-songwriter studies the music business at Belmont University, but she's also put out a collection of four tracks called Radio Silence. The EP showcases a talent with songwriting on par with indie up-and-comers like Snail Mail and big names like Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood. Tracks on Radio Silence range in intensity from barnstormer "Disappear" to post-punk tinged "Ghosts" to the ballad title track. It's a promising debut from one of the many aspiring musicians who walk among us. Take a listen to Radio Silence below. - Will Sisskind
