Lindsay Clark: Crystalline

Folk artist Lindsay Clark is releasing a new album, Crystalline, tomorrow September 21st. The album maintains a nice balance between vulnerability and resiliency. Clark’s words are intimate and delicate. Her music is deeply grounded in a strong sense of self that permeates each song. Part of this stems from the religious aspects of her music. Like most folk music, the album deals with questions of faith and spirituality. In Crystalline, these questions are permeated with delightfully vibrant depictions of nature. In “Rosehips” Clark’s calm, steady voice bathes the song in a subtle sensuality. The song invites you to forget yourself within the evocative call of Clarke’s voice, and the vivid portraits she creates. Overall, the album envelops the listener like a warm blanket on a cool fall evening.

Lindsey Clark is playing tonight, September 20th, at the Holocene in honor of her upcoming album. The show will also feature Ezza Rose, Anna Hoone, Jacob Miller, and Malachi Graham.

New Restorations LP Available for Streaming

In advance of its September 28th release date via Tiny Engines, Restorations's new album, LP5000 (Tiny Engines), is now available for streaming via NPR’s First Listen. Composed closeness that reaches anthemic ends, the quintet navigates large scale issues in a way that still hits on a deeply personal level. The ability to combine precision while evoking raw, emotive energy and responses is a delicate balance. Restorations is set to headline The First Unitarian Church on Sunday, October 21, supported by Wild Pink and Low Dose. (Photo by Jess Flynn; Collage by Bruno Guerreiro)

New Davey and the Chains LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A chill, fluid groove is ever present on Shimmy, the new album from Davey and the Chains. A gentle, surf sway and sparkle off the recording create a cozy, hip-shaking record. The laidback, fire-burning nostalgia with psychedelic threads that flare up, at times, cruises on the mellow, melodic waves but rips when the moment is right. Let it ride.
