Ida Mae release new LP 06.10 at Grimey's in-store performance

Though Ida Mae call Nashville home now, they originally hail from the UK, but their rough-and-tumble Americana music wouldn't give you that idea. Like current tour buddies Greta Van Fleet, they have mastered the art of borrowing from artists they admire to craft a sound all their own. Ida Mae -- the duo of Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean -- will release their newest album Chasing Lights on June 7, and they'll celebrate the event on June 10 at an in-store performance at Grimey's. Chasing Lights features the production of Ethan Johns, who has worked with Kings of Leon and Laura Marling; Johns' seat-of-your-pants production style and Ida Mae's energy make Chasing Lights an electric listen. Take a look at the music video for the single "Reaching" below. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "One Down" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

The first singles from Slaughter Beach, Dog’s forthcoming album, Safe And Also No Fear, have arrived. “One Down,” the LP's opener, recalls and catalogs one’s actions in an isolating, step-by-step progression. A subdued sense of routine allows a bit of sadness to enter the equation; however, it may just be a way of reviewing one’s day and clearing thoughts before going to sleep. Safe And Also No Fear is scheduled for release on August 2 via Lame-O Records.





New Kevin Lemarra Demo Album Available for Streaming & Download

Over the course of eight tracks, Kevin Lamarra creates a compelling, laidback, experimental folk sound on Demo. Sparse instrumentation invites you in as the shimmering acoustic guitars weave through layers of genteel vocals, gaining the harmonious, familiar feels of home. Those subtlety intricate, beautiful stacks of sonics sweep you up in their web, cultivating a comforting environment.





Merival - Folk Singer/Songwriter's new single "No Brakes, Record Due 06.27

Toronto folk singer/songwriter Merival has released a new track “No Brakes”. It’s a pretty little folk tune with some obscure moments that give the track a very theatrical feel. In her words “It feels messed up to walk that line of mental anguish vs. stability, ‘bad’ art vs. ‘good’ art, but I think we all do it at some point. With this song, I was basically wishing that I was depressed again so I could write ‘better’ music.” Merival’s debut full length album is set for release on June 21st. – Kris Gies





Weekend Warrior, May 24 - 26

Conversations (Tone Tree Music), the new album from The Dove & The Wolf, is something worth talking about, and this Saturday, the band, led by Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat, are slated to celebrate its arrival at Johnny Brenda’s. Hypnotic harmonies and subtly layered instrumentation induce an intimate, daydreaming state. The gentle, jangly vulnerability of the songs endears with an empathetic, heart-aching honesty. They'll be joined by multi-instrumentalist and tourmate Michelle Blades, who creates graceful, compelling, genre-experimenting pop. Shamir will also be on hand with their latest, Be the Yee, Here Comes the Haw, in tow. – Michael Colavita
