New York singer/songwriter Rachael Sage premieres 'I've Been Waiting' + plays Rockwood on 5.13

Ahead of the release of her latest album 'Choreographic' on 5/20, New York singer/songwriter Rachael Sage today premieres "I've Been Waiting" (streaming below) off the effort. A sultry yet warm song that smoothly melds potentially disparate genres as folk and pop, the string-lined track tells of interpersonal longing with Aimee Mann-like poetic bewitchment. "Cover me with butterfly kisses/I could be the one you haunt," Sage sings, unabashed desire sliding through. Rachael Sage will perform at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on 5/13. - Zach Weg

Maddie Medley releases dark, beautiful "Garland EP"

Good folk music must be one of those "you know it when you hear it" things. There's sure no set criteria. Is it the lyrics, the music, the mood? One thing is certain—you'll know you're hearing it when you listen to Maddie Medley's Garland EP. It's is an all-too-short collection of barebones folk tunes, no bells or whistles in sight. Despite her low, resonant voice and the melancholy throughout (you can only be so peppy when discussing the life of Judy Garland), Medley's register remains agile and bouncy. Check out the stream below. -Austin Phy

Butcher Knives unveils video + plays live at Pianos on 04.29

A little too often, the musical ingredient of what we highlight in this blog are very limited - ranging from traditional roots music to the more contemporary genres of rock and pop derivatives. That's why it's refreshing to stumble, every now and then, upon a band like NYC's Butcher Knives. Inspired to multi-cultural European acts like Mano Negra and Les Negresses Vertes, this collective uses a mix of ska and rockabilly as a frame for their world music influences, which are heavy on the Gypsy side of things - hence the adoption of the "Gyspybilly" label. Colombian vocalists Nacho Segura and Nikko Matiz also confer a certain Goth element to their songs. The group will be performing at Pianos on April 29th, taking the opportunity to unveil their new video for single 'American Dream,' streaming below, from their latest album 'Misery'.
