Jenn Grinels and Marc Broussard Examine Love on "Evidence" (premiere)

"I immediately heard it as a duet - specifically I heard Marc Broussard's voice singing the other part - not surprisingly, because he possesses one of my favorite voices on the planet. When I wrote the song I didn't even know Marc, so it's BONKERS to me that he's singing it with me on my record. We even recorded a very sweet video together - a live acoustic version - and the whole time we were filming I was screaming in head: OH MY GOD MARC BROUSSARD IS SINGING MY SONG. I look chill. But reall...

Needshes Perfectly Capture Teenage Obsession on "Love"(premiere)

"First came a beat and a guitar riff. During the grueling work session on the special project, I wanted to relax, do something else to take my mind off of it. And then, after a while, when I was going through the demos, I came across this bit. The main melody has come. And it worked really well with the beat and the riff. Initially, it was just a balalaika sound. Then with various layers and other instruments, it acquired a more multi-timbral unique sounding. And then lyrics with melody popped...

Tami Neilson Examines Parenthood and  Feminism via "Queenie, Queenie" (premiere + interview)

Have you met her? I've gotten to open for her twice in the last few years. There's always that fear of meeting your heroes. On one of the opening dates, I was in the middle of my set, and I wasn't even sure if she was around. I was singing, and then I heard the gospel backbeat clapping. I looked over and heard this voice go, "Yeeeees!" [Laughs.] She was sitting on a stool in the wings, swaying and raising her arms. My heart burst out of my chest. I went back after my set. She came over an...

Indie Poppers Stars and Rabbit Hang Out "Any Day in the Park" (premiere)

With surreal visuals both blissfully soft and grand and sounds as tremendous in scale as they are sweetly simple, Stars and Rabbit make the mundane miraculous. That is, as Saad notes, by design. "Wherever and whatever circumstances we are in," he says of the sentiments behind the track, "sometimes all the comfort you need is space for your own thoughts."Out now in advance of upcoming album Rainbow Aisle, "Any Day in the Park" offers us a glimpse into the boundless imagination of Stars and Rabb...

Brother Dege's Profound Roots on Display via "The Early Morn" (premiere)

In making the video, he found a way to celebrate his partnership with fellow musician and dobro player, Tom Portman. He notes, "My solo and duo shows [with Tom] have never been properly captured with the ambient usage of the amps and pedals. Tom and I had some days off in western Ireland where he lives, so we decided to film this in-studio thing after a chance meeting the Bearfoot Production guys at a gig in Kilkenny. They were game to shoot something interesting. So we all woke up early on a ...

Americana's Jen Starsinic Probes Depression and Anxiety in "Bad Actor" (premiere)

The Berklee College of Music graduate delivers a poignant, intimate and stunning track with "Bad Actor", highlighting the loneliness of anxiety and depression while avoiding clichés and offering up a musical setting that is at once deeply familiar and stunningly new.Starsinic adds, "I think it's hard to admit to yourself when you're that down, like embracing it is going to make it worse when really it's the only way through it. So writing a song about how messed up I felt was pretty comforting...

Svetlana Gets "Happy" with a Pharrell Williams Cover (premiere)

Certainly, the visuals in Svetlana's new video are delightful, bouncing between perspective plays (the aforementioned group walking between foregrounded Pringles cans or across shoelaces as if they were a tightrope, which Svetlana refers to as a "'down to earth - literally! - perspective'") and studio shots. The latter make it clear that both she and Gordon are having a wonderful time, surrounded by brilliant sound (John Chin's cascading piano solo has a particular sparkle to it) and good vibe...

Lilly Hiatt Delivers Potent New Track, "P-Town" (premiere + interview)

You also wrote about your sister on "Rae" and about traveling with her while she worked with the homeless on "Some Kind of Drug". She threads through both those songs. I could try to be discreet about that, but I really can't be. She had a job working with a nonprofit here, Open Table Nashville. She was in contact with many homeless people, getting them housing, resources, fighting uphill battles daily. That song emerged after riding around with her to the spots where she helped people and me...
