Gabriel Kahane lands (long!) Rockwood Music Hall residency

While singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane certainly does possess strong vocal chops, the core strength of his music comes from the "songwriting" half of his genre label. Kahane is a dexterous and thoughtful composer, balancing out the pronounced folkiness of his accoustic guitar parts with classic string or piano accompaniments on tracks like "Veda (1 Pierce Dr.)." He's also not afraid to "plug in" and rock out either (like in "Calabash & Catamaran") proving his versatility as an artist to perform a range of styles and capture a wide breadth of emotions. He even did a cover of a song from "Oklahoma" the musical for goodness' sake! On top of that, the strong Elliot Smith vibes in Kahane's music add an extra aura of melancholy, and if Rockwood booked him for a residency it means he's as good llive as he sounds on record. You can catch him next Rockwood's Stage 2 on 8/28, and then again and again until 10/23! — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, Photo Credit: Rebecca Deane

Steady Holiday performs at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concerts

After many years of collaboration, Dre Babinski shines steadily in her own light as Steady Holiday, starting her dream pop foray with debut album Under the Influence. Poignant, personal and touching, Babinski’s lyrics are buried under infectious melodies, but become uncovered after a few listens. Words like, “it’s a lonely world, I don’t want to be hurt” ("Under the Influence") and “We’re not alone/ You and I have our demons we can’t control” ("Overcast Waltz") resonate with a solo artist’s apprehension. Having performed at the prominent Coachella Festival, Steady Holiday performs again for all, free on September 1 at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concert Series with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. - Kaitlyn Tang

Bodies Be Rivers, Lacrymosa release collaborative 7'' split + play release show on 8/29

Sometimes a collaboration is all a band needs to to reach the next level, and a prime example of this phenomenon is "Making Plans," Bodies Be Rivers' collaboration with mysterious pianist/singer Lacrymosa. On their past work, Bodies Be Rivers mostly relied on their guitar parts to hold down the song's structure, anchoring their ethereal vocals from floating off into space. With the addition of Lacrymosa's piano, however, the load is lightened, allowing the guitar to contribute to the song's overall atmosphere. The result is something far dreamier and uplifting than anything they've done in the past. "Making Plans" is the lead single off of a collaborative 7'' split between the two artists, and you can check out their release show on 8/29 at Manhattan Inn. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Music Video: "Wasted" - The Lawsuits

Found on their latest album Moon Son, which is available via Randm Records, The Lawsuits's new 360-degree video for “Wasted” wraps one up in the visually warping, sparse imagery. That calming groove plays into the context of finding a better half. The Lawsuits will be performing at Boot & Saddle on Friday, September 23 with Nemes and Jeremiah Tall, and they will also have new guitarist/manager Chris Radwanski (Suburban Living, Night Panther) in tow.
