Lake Street Dive's Bridget Kearney plays solo at Union Pool on 10.19

After twelve years on tour with folk-rock outfit Lake Street Dive, former bassist Bridget Kearney made a rapid transition into a self-made singer/songwriter, initiated by the speedy release of her debut single, “Won’t Let You Down.” This title also serves as the name of her first full-length LP, released in March 2017. Though slower tracks such as “Love Doctor” and "Nothing Does It” give glimpses of her previous group’s rootsy leanings, Bridget’s new sound primarily adheres to the glimmering and catchy traits of indie pop. Songs like “So Long” and “Who Are We Kidding” provide a nonchalant atmosphere to this record and pull her bright energy down to a more relaxed level. The echoey effect she applies to her gorgeous melodies combined with the tracks' pleasant instrumental landscape gives this collection an enticing, almost seductive feel. You can catch Bridget Kearney playing Union Pool on October 19, and stream her debut album Won’t Let You Down on Bandcamp.





Bicoastal duo EXES releases new EP "Before You Go"

In their new EP Before You Go (set for release October 5), bi-coastal duo EXES have expanded their exploratory indie-pop collection. The physical distance between these artists is certainly not palpable in this collection of cohesive, neatly produced tracks. Integrating snapshots of recent thoughts and experiences into their new work, EXES has merged their characteristic mellow pop with a noticeably more candid lyrical approach, showcasing the growth of this duo both musically as well as personally.  The duo's sound is driven by the soft, melodic vocals of Brooklyn-based singer Allie McDonald and the edgy electronic beats of LA-based producer Mike Derenzo, resulting in a soulful interpretation of clean electronica. Single “Before you Break” explores a playful staccato vocal style that, combined with a slow-burning drum track and layers of subtle ambiance, reveals the meticulous production elements of their recent work. Many of their new songs contain very visual and often experience-based lyrics. “Peckham” vividly evaluates abstract subjects such as romance, hopes and fears, showcasing this band’s equal consideration of both sound and substance. You can stream EXES’ Before You Go in full right now via Live Nation’s Ones To Watch, and be sure to keep an eye out for the official release this Friday. -Rebecca Carroll

New Don Babylon LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Foul, the sophomore LP from power trio Don Babylon, is out now via Medical Records. The record rocks & rolls through life’s everyday obstacles. Whether barreling through with a boozy, raw, rumbling tone, laying back and seeing things with a humorous spin, or coasting on a stoned-out groove, the band demonstrates an enthusiastic flexibility to go where the music takes them. It's a release that addresses the daily grind and tears it up in the process.





Isla Invisible share track “Pillow” debut EP out now

Dreampop is never out of fashion it seems, with selected members of each new generation embracing that classic 1990's sound. NYC trio Isla Invisible have accurately captured the mood of this era on their recently released debut EP1 via Velvet Blue Music. With their obvious (and admitted) influences such as Slowdive, Cocteau Twins and next decade practioners The xx on display, the group delivers in single Pillow (streaming) a waltz with the pace of Mazzy Star's “Fade Into You,” a song that lulls you into a hypnagogic state where melody ultimately merges with an overwhelming cathedral of organs and guitars. It's a potent formula, eliciting waves of emotional responses and feelings while immersed in this ethereal world. Second track “Outward” impeccably captures the male-female tandem vocals of Slowdive's Neil and Rachel, emphasizing similarly styled minor key harmonies. Those harmonies go even further on third song “Frail Device” where soft female voices swirl around in the background and complement the centrally placed male vocal line. The 7” vinyl is now available for order, and accompanying download card comes with 2 bonus tracks. -Dave Cromwell
