Foreign Air releases "Used to You" + tours the US

Operating in the intersection between New Wave, EDM, and soul music, Brooklyn via Washington DC Foreign Air have forged a recognizable and original style, while releasing a series of incredibly catchy songs. First single Free Animal put them on the right path, but the solid 2016 EP For the Light already included another noteworthy track (In the Shadows), which climbed the digital charts and helped keep the name "hot." After that initial burst, the band has managed to keep their fans' attention alive through the constant release of several other quality singles. Their latest, entitled "Used to You" (streaming below), is a glo-fi mid-tempo that flirts with trip hop and Moby's looped soul samples. The duo just announced a month-long North American tour that will take them to Austin during SXSW and back to Baby's All Right on April 9th. 





Deathlist Song Release

This past month Deathlist released a new song, “8 Eyes” off their upcoming album A Canyon. Elusive and sly, “8 Eyes” is a hard song to get a hold of. However, that just means it’s all the more rewarding when you do, even if it’s only for a moment. The anxiety-packed lyrics provide the right amount of tension for the more cheerful riffs and beats present in the song. Listening to it is a hypnotic, immersive experience. It brings up a lot of feelings. Getting a glimpse of that one sliver of moonlight on an otherwise dark night. The first breath of cold, fresh air taken after dancing in a packed, sweaty crowd. It’s a great song to start the year off with.
 
Deathlist's album release party will be taking place at The Fixin' To, Sunday February 9th. Abronia will also be playing a set, along with new project John-Paul H.

Schlotman’s New Single “Bang Bang” Hits Hard

We are pleased to debut the new single “Bang Bang” from Schlotman, off their upcoming album Animal Glamour (another success brought to you by Tiny Telephone Studios). Pair this bad boy with their other single, “7-11 Jesus,” and we’re pretty confident that 2019’s album will be on par with 2018’s Future and ‘17’s On a Rope. More like on a roll. Lucas Nevrla’s vocals are lovely as ever (somewhere between Jeff Buckley and Julian Casablancas) and though this track has a sadder feel than a lot of their other songs, we’re kept from crying by those winding melodic riffs, the warm reverberating hum, a taste of grunge and just a little psychedelic guitar. Lines like, “Baby blue, all I want is someone to do bad things to” get stuck in your head as much as the melodies. Tasteful mixing and mastering by Brandon Eggleston and Chris Hanzsek, respectively. We can’t wait to see them live, February 12th at The Gilman and stay tuned for that January 29th full album release. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





New Track: "Rescind" - Yarrow

A Mild Circus, the debut EP from the trio of Yarrow (which features member of Great Weights an King Azaz), is slated for release on February 15 via Get Better Records. Its lead single, “Rescind,” opens by initiating a sense of a noise-accented tension. Pointing out the misplaced malice of those dispersing negative actions and attitudes, it notes the clear discrepancy in ideological goals and perspectives between the aggressors and their victims. You can find Yarrow this Thursday, January 17 at Hubris House, as part of a lineup that also includes Absinthe Father and Fox Hollow.





Quay Dash takes what's hers at All Girl Trap/Rap Party (Baby's All Right 01.18)

On her 2017 album Transphobic, Quay Dash proclaimed herself to be the "Queen of NY", and that's a title we're not going to argue. Hers is one of the most visionary new voices in the New York rap scene, and watching her evolution from her debut to last year's single U.A.F.W.M. can only be described as breathtaking. Quay Dash may have taken notes from the classic bravado of New York artists like Lil Kim, but the musical world she inhabits is all her own: the adrenaline-spiking beats and chilling effortlessness of her delivery are unmistakably hers, trophies of the hardships she's overtaken to get here. On January 18, Quay Dash will join JADALAREIGN, Dame Luz, Mother Mary Rose, and Na$h at BBYGRL at Baby's All Right: All Girl Trap/Rap Party to celebrate women in hip hop - so you'd better clear your schedule. - Sunny Betz
