Dre Babinski's Altpop project Steady Holiday prefers "Your Version Of Me"

The two things you need to know about multi-instrumentalist Dre Babinski: she's idiosyncratic and particular. Older fans might remember Dre as the violinist/vocalist of Dusty Rhodes and the River Band, or as one half of the folkpop project Miracle Days. As a working musician, Dre admits that her job distanced her from creativity, and hence the local scene.

"I've had a pretty insulated experience. It wasn't til quite recently that I've felt the courage to lead a project and begin sharing my own work, and I'm quickly finding how nice it is to be a part of a community."

Her new solo project Steady Holiday digitally released "Your Version of Me", first single off the 2016 full-length Getting There. The looming progressions, cinematic strings, and lofty Spage Age vibes toy with a confession of (co)dependence. It might be a snapshot of Dre's musical and personal growth, but that's not up for discussion today.

"The only evolution I can speak on is a personal one, but we'll save that for my Oprah tell-all next week."

We're pumped all the same to hear Dre's Getting There next year. Steady Holiday performs tomorrow at Club Bahia with the Hunter Hunted extended family: Justin Cornwall, Sympathetic Frequencies, and Air Life. Stream "Your Version of Me", available on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and through Infinite Best. - Ryan Mo

Future Soul sensuals Air Life performs new songs at The Satellite tomorrow

Oh Taylor Dexter!

Beloved drummer of Hunter Hunted and the Body Parts. He who watched Daniel Garner and Ryder Bach raise roofs from afar. An apostle of the kit, born-again singer and frontman who spread the word of Pop and the future spirit of Soul into our hearts. Though our daily grind leaves us broken and defeated, the collective voice of Air Life lifts us up with such energy and funk, and carries us on.

Blessed are we Angelenos to have witnessed Air Life's residency at the Satellite, the collab performance with HOLYCHILD, and the back-to-back showcases at Echo Park Rising. Blessed are the stalwart sextet backing Dex, musicians of immeasurable talent — bassist Brad Babinski and drummer Brijesh Pandra, Derek Howa of keys and Mark Einhorn of the brass, the dextrous Wesley Singerman on guitar, and singer Cassandra Violet who loops and spits like it's nobody's business.

Woe to the music purveyors who forsake Air Life's next show, happening tomorrow at The Satellite with Steady Holiday and an undisclosed special guest to open the night. Forgive them, for they know not what they are missing out on (new music, an awesome live performance, $6 entrance with RSVP). - Ryan Mo

Stream: Air Life "Tell Me Anything"

Air Life is nose-diving straight into the heart of L.A. and right into a weekly residency at The Satellite venue every Monday in May. Their newest single, "Tell Me Anything", has smooth jazz beats, subtly soulful 70’s vibes, and endearing lyrics: “Tell me how you feel, when we are apart baby.” It’s incredible when certain songs can put you into different moods, folding into different styles and situations as they collaborate to the setting you're in. This song, in particular, should be played in the bedroom; lying next to your partner with lights strung above and gazing into each other’s eyes - you get the point. Speaking of the 70’s, this song has a groove evocative of that time with its energetic rhythm section, all the while Taylor Dextor engages the audience with his soothing, sensual voice. - Kayla Hay
