New Track: "Ain't Life Grand" - A.M. Mills

Flurries of delicate guitar marry a matriculating, warm bass and sandy percussion in A.M. Mills latest single, "Ain't Life Grand". There’s a worn aesthetic and a sly sense of humor on display. It feels nostalgic - a comfortable melancholy that we're all invited to join in on. You can find the former Blood Feathers co-frontman crooning his heart out this evening at Johnny Brenda's, with The Cactus Blossoms and Frankie Lee. (Photo by Serge Levin)

New Track: "Going To My Brother’s House" - Maxwell Stern

Perusing unfamiliar territory, “Going To My Brother’s House,” the latest single from Maxwell Stern (of Signals Midwest), glides in a roundabout, acoustic-folk stroll. Along the song’s evolution, it traveled the globe from Philly to Pittsburgh, to Australia, to Chicago, where it was augmented by Mother Evergreen to become what we hear now. There’s an unassuming nature as the tune guides you down a path. Picking up additional instrumental pieces along the way fully fleshes out its details, as the catchy, lyrical string tongue-ties. There’s a familiarity in realizing when you're out of your comfort zone and the aspects that you notice in those circumstances. You can find Stern opening things up at Kung Fu Necktie on Friday, April 27, as part of a billing that also includes Shannen Moser, Port Arthur, and Friends of the Bog.

Ben Caplan's "Widow Bride" is a noisy nod to eastern European music

Canadian songwriter Ben Caplan's first single from his new album Old Stock (due out June 15th) is dark, witty, and energetic. Those are three adjectives that wouldn't normally make sense together, but in context, "Widow Bride" is all three. There is a sense of mystery in the eastern European chordal structure, the lyrics are smart and interesting, and the driving arrangement ties whole track together. Dynamic and confident, "Widow Bride" shows Caplan's songwriting talent and highlights a gorgeous assortment of textures. -Geena Kloeppel

New Track: "Sun of The City" - BARNES

Barney Cortez, a.k.a. BARNES, recently shared a new single called “Sun of The City,” featuring longtime collaborative partner Nick Bockrath (Cage The Elephant, ex-Nicos Gun/The Rich Mystics) and vocalist Katie Schecter. Acoustic and pedal steel guitar are delicately stitched together as a thought-filled walk unfolds words of wisdom and past events. There’s a duality in the intimate, inviting, folk sound and the chill of individual isolation that the lyrics depict. BARNES is slated to appear this Wednesday, April 18 in NoLibs at Ortlieb's, with The Mysteries and Lady HD.
