Steve Shiffman & the Land of No premieres single from upcoming LP "Double Life"

"Things Are Clear This Morning" holds true to its title: it definitely is a morning song. Steve Shiffman & the Land of No's delicate, sleep-in-the-eye vocal gently guides you through the track, accompanied by a heartily strummed acoustic guitar.  There's even a synth-like electric guitar at the end that gives off just enough of an atmospheric texture to suspend the song in mid-air. Steve Shiffman successfully transports you to a warm breeze on a clear morning. The band's new record Double Life is out February 2nd on Later Records, with a release party at Club Berlin on February 10th. - Geena Kloeppel

New Track: "Dead Town" - Wrapscallion

A murky, meandering bassline, woven with acoustic guitar, creates a haunting level of menace in “Dead Town” by Wrapscallion, a.k.a. Cameron Alexander (formerly of Tangiers). Kicking up dust as one walks along the desolate dirt road, the narrative speaks to the dangers of herd mentality and the dreary doom that may follow as a result. The song’s lingering refrain suggests trouble, when one’s ideal paradise transforms into their worst nightmare. How can we escape?

Dougie Poole brings new wave country to Baby’s All Right 2.4

There’s something decidedly midwestern about Dougie Poole. It’s not so much the love for heartland country that Poole wears proudly on his sleeve, but the odd ways he stretches out those influences. Poole’s take on country sees mainly the sappy sentimentality at its core and embellishes that with generous reverb and synth-heavy arrangements. It’s definitely not country, but alt-country would be a major misnomer too... it owes far more to ‘80s synth-pop and new wave. There’s not much else like it, you really have to hear it to understand. You can experience this intriguing blend of influence in person next February 4th when Dougie Poole opens for Paul Bergmann’s record release show at Baby’s All Right. – Cameron Carr

Debut Ali Awan Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly singer-songwriter Ali Awan recently caught our ear with his “Citadel Blues” single release. Its title track rolls out onto the street, riding a compact, loose, percussive groove. Infected with that casual vibe, the song’s protagonist searches for a deeper connection, while “Last Resort” tells a tale of yearning with a folk-country foundation. Intensified by sunny accents of violin, which make way for bouncing piano keys, the song echoes a timeless sentiment, but is steeped in tradition.

Amen Dunes releases "Miki Dora" music video; new LP "Freedom" drops 03.30

In March, you can pick up Amen Dunes' fifth album, Freedom. However, right now, you can watch the music video for "Miki Dora", the first single from the album. Damon McMahon, the brains behind Amen Dunes, reflects on his youth and upbringing in the eleven tracks on Freedom; in "Miki Dora", he connects the life of the legendary surfer to his own, touching on the surfer's criminality and distorted personality. Tastes of the early-80s post-punk and late-80s no-wave scene come through in the track. The music video for the first single stars seventeen-year-old Boomer Feith running through New York City in slowed-down scenes to fit the bass-heavy moody music; scenes of McMahon singing and lyrics from the song cut in between.

To celebrate the release, Amen Dunes will perform at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 31st with a brand new live band. Get a taste for what's to come by watching the video for "Miki Dora" below. - Will Sisskind
