New Track: "Say" - Arch of Love

Consisting of Chelsea Brennan and Chris Schackerman (Literature, Mercury Girls, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart), Arch of Love recently dropped a new single, “Say,” via 6131 Records. The song stretches in a silky, synth-pop manner, but despite the smooth progression, Brennan voices concern over poor, conflicting communication. That coasting instrumentation contrasts with the turbulence within the relationship. The duo will be performing this Sunday, August 4 at Ortlieb's, on a lineup that also includes Crozet and Hibou.





Gold Child releases single "Undertow," announce debut LP, plays Baby's tonight

"Been disconnected / everything's feeling so hectic," Emily Fehler muses, just within seconds of the song's start. "Undertow" is the beginning of a tellingly honest vignette by a clever, talented musician. Under her Gold Child stage name, Emily has had her share of recognition with mentions from Rolling Stone (Top 200), NPR (Best New Music), Refinery29 (a media outlet which often focuses on artists empowering women), and Brooklyn Vegan. With its warm aura blending country and dreampop, the song is at once disarming and pleasant in its nostalgic overtones, with the dark folk elements bringing to mind powerful singer/songwriters like Angel Olsen or Neko Case.

The country-influenced instrumentation has been a driving force in developing her music since graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2012(She's a self-professed student of country music's golden era with a slight obsession with Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris). That, plus the lyrical content in "Undertow," paints a picture of a musician interested in taking American roots music to new places and the courage to face any personal demons she gets dealt by life - in this single's case, a problem with anxiety: "Gotta get to the right time and place someday," leads to the chorus that carries Gold Child's message: "So emotional / lost all my control / slipping in slow motion down this waterfall / stuck in the undertow." 

With tonight's show at Baby's All Right, Emily Fehler will have her chance to share long-awaited material. Additonally the self-titled debut album, will be released digitally on Friday, August 9th. - Susan Moon

Almost Owen is out here with your midsummer anthem

Boston’s Almost Owen is a little risqué and a whole lot of playful: the singer-songwriter’s latest single “We Out Here” is the perfect anthem for midsummer festivities. The percussive song moves limbs and provides a solid foundation for Owen’s smooth flow and catchy pop hooks. The production of “We Out Here” impresses with its textured vocal harmonies and cheery chants that create the merry atmosphere Owen is known for. We dare say too that Owen has a swagger in his delivery that completes the summer package. If you need a track for your mischievous summer evenings, we are streaming it for you below. - Rene Cobar
