Lavachild returns with single 'Kandy' + announces debut EP

'Kandy,' by Brooklyn electronic chanteause Lavachild, is a song (as singer Chantel Marie puts it) about 'greed and lost perspective,' so it's kind of appropriate for us to blog about it on the day Donal Trump has de facto won the Republican Presidential Nomination. (Ok, ok, this is not a political song at all, but... you know, today Trump is all we can think about!). This is Lavachild's eeriest and edgiest tune to date, developing on top of abstract, moody and ever-changing layers of synths and a simple, tenuous electronic drum pattern. Chantel Marie's voice - as sensual as always - carves delicate, haunting melodies. The track makes us look forward to the band's debut EP, scheduled to be released later this year.

From the digital submissions: Airlands prepares sophomore LP

Brooklyn based artist Kevin Calaba performs under the moniker Airlands, a sophisticated art pop project that's about to release its second studio album. Calaba's liquid vocals encapsulate passion and longing. Single 'Love & Exhale' (streaming), off last year's self-titled debut album, is an intense ballad exuding almost mystical peace and tranquility; it will please the fans of Peter Gabriel from the 'So' years. The record is a perfect collection of music for the end of a long day, something many New Yorkers may appreciate. - Amanda McCall

Muscle and Marrow debut new track, announce 2nd album

 Muscle and Marrow barreled onto the scene with 2014's The Human Cry, with rave reviews. The pair, consisting of vocalist and guitarist Kira Clark and drummer and sampler Keith McGraw took their sound to various stages in support of the album last year, including a raving performance at the 2015 PDX Pop Now Festival as well as playing to a packed house with True Widow at White Owl. Whether you deem them as metal, experimental or some sort of dark folk, it's undeniable that their emotive sounds evoke a contradictive chaotic calm.

Lucky for us, Muscle and Marrow premiered a new track yesterday via She Shreds. Coming off their upcoming sophmore effort, Love, "Bereft Body" builds up with a quiet vocality from Clark, leading into a cacophonic spree of instrumental emotion that suddenly stops, leaving desire.

Love comes out May 27th on The Flenser. Dive into "Bereft Body" below.

Mega Bog moves to NYC, plays Shea on 04.30 and Rough Trade on 05.05

The impressionistic musical project of Seattle songwriter Erin Birgy - who recently moved to NYC - Mega Bog has been releasing intimate records flirting with folk, lo-fi and ambient since 2008. Her latest, entitled 'Gone Banana,' is a sleepy yet provocative LP that blends Joni Mitchell's delicately jazzy inclinations with Syd Barrett's dreamy, child-like preference for the unfinished draft. Check out our favorite song 'Gone Banana' below, and don't miss her upcoming live shows at Shea Stadium (04.30) and Rough Trade (05.05), after which she will leave for a US tour.
