Riders Against the Storm Host Festival and Drop Single "OverUnder"

Local hip-hop funketeer group, Riders Against the Storm, are revving up the 5th annual RAS day which will feature other headliners like the legendary Saul Williams, NYC rapper Nitty Scott, and the Brazilian afro-rockers, Gato Preto.  This years RAS day fest has some magnified significance this year because of the targeted bombings that were perpetrated against people of color earlier this year, and the resilience of that community which would rather express themselves artistically rather than continue the hate.  While music is the main attraction at RAS Day, art and wellness are also on the docket for an immersive experience. RAS day tickets are $20 and can be bought here.  As we get ready for the festival on the 25th, Riders Against the Storm just dropped a new single "OverUnder" for you to imbibe prior to the event!

Phony Ppl burst with personalty on "Before You Get A Boyfriend"

It seems every summer the temperature becomes more and more unbearable. That’s why it’s so refreshing to hear the breezy and cool return of Phony Ppl. After three years without any new material, the group has returned with the vibrant “Before You Get A Boyfriend” video (streaming). Sun-kissed guitars and splashy keys make this the perfect song to mark the beginning of the end of summer. You can watch the video below. – Tucker Pennington

From the Submissions: Funk/R&B band Valipala

Take a little bit of '60s Motown funk, mix that with today’s R&B, add with some jazz overtones, and you have Valipala. Their debut EP Mango City, released last October, is a fun, twisting journey through genres. The opening track “Mongolian Afternoon” (streaming below) showcases the powerful vocals of Lauren Scales; it sounds like the soundtrack to a happy, sunny, summer walk through the city. The band does an excellent job of giving the spotlight to each instrument at one point or another and their cohesion as bandmates is also evident in the EP's fourth track “Century Star.” Scales’ airy yet solid voice carries lightly over the instruments behind her, creating a harmonious blend of synths, drums, brass section, and voice. -Lily Crandall

From the Submissions: Francis Aud brings his soul-pop to Mercury Lounge 08.09

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Francis Aud describes his music as “funk and soul music that is almost as charming as he is.” His most recent release “Friends Like Us” is a sweet summer song about friends who “don’t stay just friends for long” as he puts it. It has the universal charm and likability of a good pop song, blended with grooving synths and pulsing drums that dare you to dance. His debut EP Tender Thoughts, released last October is a collection of engaging, playful tunes. “Share this Bed” is a blues-inspired love song, while “Yeah!” is a powerful, heartfelt ballad complete with a commanding brass section and old soul tenderness. You can catch Francis live with his band “The Professionals” this Thursday, August 9 at Mercury Lounge. -Lily Crandall
