Some Professional Help releases glittering self-titled EP & plays Uptown Nightclub (5.24)

Every now and again, a special kind of artist falls onto our radar—one that is able to give nods to music history, while also successfully innovating and pushing boundaries. One such artist is Scott Alexander, whose new project Some Professional Help is ambitious to say the least. Backed by a rotating 16-person band, Alexander leads the eclectic soundscape with his knowledge of orchestral music (if you think that there isn’t enough bassoon in pop music, then you and Alexander may be cut from the same cloth.) The self-titled debut EP is a glittering, baroque take on orchestral pop. With vocals akin to that of Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and arrangements that whisper influences from Sufjan Stevens, this project shines as a standout singer-songwriter debut. Some Professional Help will be performing in Oakland at Uptown Nightclub on May 24. - Lilly Milman

Momma unveils new single "Work," debut LP out 5/25

Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten have created a beautiful assemblage of uplifting, star gazing energy that will elevate your mind and soul into serenity. Masterminds Friedman and Weingarten together tackle both the instruments and the vocals with ease dominating the soft grunge genre. Hints of Tegan and Sara and Liz Phair flow through their newest single, “Work," layered with moody instrumentals, heavy lyrics, and undeniable talent. Momma is of the first magnitude - their depth and experience as young women hold a great impact on the sound they create.

Momma’s forthcoming album, Interloper, is available on May 25 via Danger Collective. Follow the duo on Instagram and Facebook for updates on a future tour. Kayla Hay

Cloud Becomes Your Hand is back at Alphaville on 06.09 within the Northside Fest

Demanding NYC indie rock fans who are struggling to find original, fun, and entertaining new bands should go check out Cloud Becomes Your Hand when they play live at Alphaville on Juse 9th, within the Northside Festival. The avant-post-punk (!?) collective was on the cover of our 47th issue of The Deli, and for a reason: their debut album "Rest in Fleas" was the most refreshingly fun thing we happened to listen that year, in particular single "Hermit," streaming below ("Sand of Sea" and "Bridge of Ignoramus" are pretty darn awesome too). Their live show is some kind of perfectly excuted experimental theatrical production that's tightly paced without ever falling in the traps of self-indulgence. Do not miss!
