Sophia Prise - M A N I F E S T E N T
Oakland, United States
Singer/songwriter/producer Sophia Prise teams up with Emmy-winning producer/engineer David Earl for this inspiring power-pop track. Prise's exacting lyrics take on two distinct voices- a conversation between the push of the powerful and the protest of the powerless. Curated complexity in the synths mirror this conversation, underpinned by full-bore future beats and tantalizing buildups, while the singer-producer's vocal melodies range from grim and static to leaping and urgent. In French, the word "manifestent" means "they protest".
Pini Gurfil - Anny
Anny is Pini’s third single (following Fade Away and Reborn). The song’s narrative deals with human undertaking in relationship; in particular, the intricate mental network weaved by psychotherapy. The song dwells upon the inter-relations between mental resurrection and the underlying anxiety, while investigating the prospects and process of mental salvation. It includes an expert from a speech by philosopher Alan Watts. The song is melodically dynamic, with the 6/8 meter endowing it with a retro-rock vibe.
Josh Allen and The Whisky Brothers - Keep It in the Ground!
Austin, United States
Josh Allen and the Whisky Brothers started playing together in the spring of 2007 in Austin, Texas. Since then they have released two full-length albums and one EP: "Welcome to the Rockhouse" (2008), "GIANT" (2011), and the "W.B. E.P." (2015). Now, after a few years' hiatus to start families and whatnot, Josh and the boys are back with a new outlook, and a new EP. "Still Alive" (2022) represents a shift in focus for Josh Allen the songwriter. Unlike the band's previous, more debaucherous, even hedonistic material, this is very much a post-Trump, post-COVID collection of songs, written by a concerned parent in a warming world.
Charlie Weber - SADDER/LOUDER
"SADDER/LOUDER" is the first single from London Ontario's punk troubadour Charlie Weber's forthcoming sophomore album "Gold Never Stays". After releasing his first full length in 2018, Weber comes back to the scene (after an unplanned 2 year vacation) with a microscopic dissection of what it truly means to be a friend, and a crash course in how many straws it takes to finally break the camels back. If you're into raw vocals with emotionally honest lyricism that doesn't tread the same old story of boy meets girl etc etc, this might be the song for you.
You'll See One Day - The Letter
"Born on the streets of Melbourne Australia, three blokes created a blood pact to become the biggest, most discussed, covered, and listened to band of the 21st Century. A drummer born and raised on city streets, toughened by the harshness of life itself who lets it all out on the kit, Lee Elliott. A guitarist who crawled out of the whiskey bottle of the US to travel across the ocean on a cloud of Cuban cigar smoke to write fat & filthy riffs, Travis Presley. A vocalist from the untamed bogan bushland of the north who flew to the big smoke to write the catchiest of bangers, Nathan Peachey. We came together to form "You'll See One Day" as a shout-out to everyone who told us we couldn't do it. "
Sam and the Sea - Evil Ghosts
New York, United States
Sam and the Sea are a New York based singer, songwriter, record producer, and visual artist. The childhood love-at-first-sight affair with the guitar was only the beginning of their polymath musical education, which eventually extended to drums, bass, piano, percussions, and of course vocals, until music became inextricably linked with existing. Their songs are immediately personal and dreamlike, arranged with a DIY mix of real and electronic instruments, with a unique breathing vibe and intimacy reminiscent of Elliot Smith’s finest moments.

Graffiti Welfare - Just Follow
Denver, United States
"Just Follow" is a pop vapor-wave, time-warp unraveling along a red-carpet of psych rock. Synths stretch time while angular lead guitar & deep vocal hooks punctuate the modern vibe with 60s sensibility. The message is simple, just follow the stream, and trust in nature. This is the 2nd single of off Revolving Shores, the sophomore 10-track LP from Graffiti Welfare being released June 17th.
