Boo Riley Releases A New Single, "Mango Garry"

Manhattan-based artist Austin Lesch (aka Boo Riley)'s most recent single, "Mango Garry," is a clever, mid-tempo track vaguely remenescient of Steely Dan that will send you back to that sunny era in the '80s when you could hear quality pop rock on the radio. From the beginning, the song is packed with sophisticated songwriting twists and held together by Lesch's smooth, made-for-radio vocals. The song opens a three-track, impeccably produced and performed EP - you can stream it below. - Susan Moon

Singer/Songwriter Kira Metcalf plays Elsehwere on July 24

In her blend of folk and pop Brooklyn-based artist Kira Metcalf mixes poetry with a variety of genres. Listening to her new LP Indelicate, this young talent writes songs about women's experiences with the self-assuredness of a seasoned performer and an enviable introspective quality. Opening track "I Had a Head," is an acappella number that is as satisfying for its harmonizations as it is for Metcalf's voice. "Thornbird" is an unexpected change in style, in part reminiscent of rock songwriters of 90's like The Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan or - more recently - Paramore's Hayley Williams. 

Her new music video for "Lily" is equally poignant, showcasing Kira's keenness to investigate moments that escape most of us. The line, "to have what I crave feels like a trick" is the song's takeaway and the perfect summary of a personality that enjoys intellectual and lyrical reflection over... simple enjoyment. Kira Metcalf will perform live at Elsewhere's Zone One on July 24th. - Susan Moon

Sho releases soaring debut single "Planet Hurt"

Sho Ishikura makes their recorded debut with the single "Planet Hurt", an R&B ballad in the vein of artists like Prince, with Ishikura's soulful voice harmonizing over a seductive beat delivering lyrics such as "She gets me wet like a newborn." When Ishikura shared the song with fellow songwriters at an ASCAP workshop a couple of years ago, industry folks and other artists showed hesitation at the subject matter. However, a substantial amount of people were intrigued by Ishikura's tune, creating a sense of controversy that helped create some buzz for it. The uproar of "Planet Hurt" -- a track which blends pleasure with pain, light with dark --  makes it a piece of work worth your ears' attention, so that you can form your own opinion about it. Take a listen to "Planet Hurt" below. - Will Sisskind
