New Track: "All In" (Feat. Cynthia G. Mason) - Sun Airway

Before 2016 ended, we were delighted by the news of Sun Airway's return after a four-year hiatus with his single "FOAM". And now, just barely into 2017, we are treated once again to the second sampling from his forthcoming LP, Heraldic Black Cherry, called "All In". The vibrant calm of Sun Airway's latest track also features backing vocals by Philly singer-songwriter Cynthia G. Mason.

New Loadcard EP Available for Streaming & Download

Free-floating between joy-inducing, synth-steering, playful, electronic grooves and juxtaposing disenchantment, Loadcard, a.k.a. Cameron Konner, consistently shifts gears on his latest EP Perfect Balance, available via DZ Tapes. Those experimental twists between bright soundscapes and desolate, moody, melodic avenues dictate an odd-ideal sense of equilibrium. (Photo by Jordy Lyric)

True Blue leaves SF for NYC, brings dreamy sadness to Baby's All Right on 01.20

True Blue, like a fair share of alternative artists, doesn't like to let any information about them transpire through their online profiles (in most cases, this is not due to love for privacy, but rock'n'roll-style lack of caring). This being said, it looks like this act really enjoys living in expensive US cities, since they list San Francisco and NYC as their home (we believe they currently reside in the latter). By the way, we are not sure why we are referring to them in the plural form, since they appear to be a one-woman bedroom project. Maybe because of this picture, which, together with this more electric version of single "Feeling Sad" (original streaming below) seems to imply that a band has been formed. True to their name and song titles, True Blue offers invariably sad and slow songs, sung by a beautifully melancholic female voice. It's a kind of sadness, though, that's ineherently (dream-)pop, and, therefore, very enjoyable. You can see them live for free at Baby's All Right on January 20th.

abbi press brings downtempo electronica to Shea Stadium on 01.28

What we find most intriguing about electronica and dance music is its collaborative promiscuity (which we are sure lends itself to a certain degree of its sexual variety as well, but we have that in many other musical genres already!). DJs and electronic artists are very prone to remix or appear on tracks written by other, likeminded colleagues, so much so that in some cases it becomes very complicated to understand who wrote what and who simply acted as a guest (Soundcloud should really figure out a way to make that more clear). NYC producer abbi press belongs to this scene (check out her Soundcloud playlist called "COLLABS" for more about this), but her own material veers more towards the ambient/chill/downtempo realm, with excursions in more moody and atmospheric territories. Her latest single 'Wait' (streaming) showcases her expressive soprano paired with production ability both in the programming and arrangement departments. She'll be performing live at Shea Stadium on January 28.

Industrial duo Uniform releases single "The Killing of America" + plays BK Bazaar on 02.09

Well there are a lot of angry people out there these days, which bodes well for industrial rock, the more radical and abrasive branch of electronic music (for the uninitiated, Nine Inch Nails and Ministry were the genre's brightest shining stars in the '90s, but if you want to dig deep into it, you'll have to look at mitteleuropean bands like Einstürzende Neubauten and The Young Gods, among others).  NYC duo Uniform plays a rather uncompromising version of the genre, with relentless drum machines, uber-fuzzy guitars that flirt with thrash metal, and distorted vocals. They just released "The Killing of America", their second single from their upcoming full-length, 'Wake In Fright,' described as "an exploration of self-medication, painted in the colors of war." For those in need to a cathartic, anger-releasing moment, catching this band live at Brooklyn Bazaar on February 9th might just do it.
