Stacey Randol releases mellow new LP "Songs in the Soil"

One of the fun parts of writing about the local music scene is that you get to discover new musicians, even if they're just new to you and have been around for an album or two. Stacey Randol's one of those musicians with a couple of records under her belt, but only with the release of Songs in the Soil, her sound brings in elements of legendary artists like Stevie Nicks or Kate Bush as she spins weaving melodies and mellow mood-rock instrumentals into timeless songs. A single listen to "Realize" or "Hammock Cat" will give you a burst of the vintage influence that Randol fuses into her music; you'll hear why her music has appeared on TV shows like Say Yes To The Dress or All My Children. Check out "Hammock Cat" below. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "march 1st." - Augusta Koch

Below is a new song, "march 1st.," from singer-songwriter Augusta Koch (Gladie, Cayetana). The reverberation of keys and the snap of percussion create a somber, intimate glow of evening. The personal narrative details experiences of dealing with a narcissist and ignoring one’s instincts. There’s a lingering sadness that has a haunting affect as she addresses past trauma and a future day of reckoning. Koch plans to release a song every Friday this month, and with this latest track, it's easy to hear why we are looking forward to listen to more.





Debut Maggot Museum EP Available for Streaming & Download

Shaina Joelle (of Anxiety Sludge) recently shared her debut EP What Did You Expect to Happen?, under the moniker Maggot Museum. Self-exploration and personal observation via a bedroom-folk backdrop creates an endearing, open, emotive sound. There’s a tranquil, catchy momentum to the songs that eases the melancholy experiences being depicted. It aches but in a cathartic, unburdening manner.





Swimming Bell's "1988" is an authentic folk vision, plays Trans-Pecos 4.6

Swimming Bell, the solo project of Brooklyn-based songwriter Katie Schottland, found its start in 2015, after Schottland broke her foot and used the downtime to learn guitar. Perhaps a consequence of her homespun background in recording and composition, Swimming Bell’s music is endowed with a rare authenticity, creating raw, unfettered folk songs from memories of people and places past. Her newest effort “1988” is the latest example of this craft, accompanied by a video that seeks to recreate the innocent wonder of childhood against lush acoustics and overdubbed vocals. And as the first single from her forthcoming LP, Wild Sight, it demonstrates a focused, fresh approach to folk ahead of the album's release later this spring.

Schottland will return to New York on April 6th to perform a record release show at Trans-Pecos, supported by Monteagle, Pale Mara, and Andrew Victor. Until then, you can watch the video fro “1988” below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
