A Deli NYC premiere: Lake Ruth's 'The Only One Who Knows'

We can't exactly tell what Lake Ruth's singer Allison Brice sings about in the band's new single 'The Only One Who Knows' we are premiering below - the lyrics are rather unintelligible. Nonetheless, her vocals carry a quality of wisdom and sweet confidence that makes us picture a young mother - our Platonic mother? - giving us precious advice, with her beautiful, hopeful voice, about that relentless unraveling of mysteries called life. And even though the band's music, heavily influenced by the psychedelic '60s, puts this semi-imaginary lady in a historical context our real mother missed, the track's 'vintage' sound and dreamy atmosphere contribute in setting the stage for the most reassuring of dreams: re-living the days when we had somebody on our side who could answer all our questions: 'The Only One Who Knows'.

Don't miss Lake Ruth at NYC Popfest on May 22nd at Littlefield. LP Actual Entity' out on June 24th, 2016 on The Great Pop Supplement.

New Lux Perpetua EP Available for Streaming & Download

Since the turn of 2016, Lux Perpetua aka Justin Wolf has been on a monthly EP releasing run. His latest Music for Solipsistic Tendencies meshes frenetic experimental folk with mellower moments of internal contemplation. It’s as if the search party expanded the perimeter, only to realize what they were looking for was too close to originally see. 

Shaking Through w/Hemming

For the premiere episode of the new season of Weathervane Music's Shaking Through (above), the documentary series revamped its usual format a bit, giving us a more in-depth look at their featured artist Hemming (a.k.a. Candice Martello), who has already had quite an interesting journey in the music industry. From getting her feet wet fronting the indie-punk duo Omar to winning VH1's reality show music competition Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, you definitely learn some valuable lessons from Martello's experiences and get the honesty that she's now trying to achieve with her music. You also find her creating a wonderful track, "All I Want," with friends Augusta Koch and Allegra Anka of Cayetana and Matt Schimelfenig and Pat Brier of Three Man Cannon. Take the new single for a spin and download it for free below!

Brooklyn's Stone Cold Fox celebrates new EP at Mercury Lounge tomorrow (5/7)

Last week, Brooklyn indie rock quartet Stone Cold Fox released its electric new EP, ‘Tunnel Vision.’ Reportedly recorded over the course of two years yet bursting with urgency, the five-song effort starts its ominous magic with the reverb-backed “Contagion” (streaming below), a track that pleasantly melds The Strokes’ early ruggedness with Tame Impala’s solid psych rock. Middle track “Morning Light,” similarly, radiates with a guitar-based warmth that could be a refreshing antedote to a gray day, recalling the great ELO tracks of the late ‘70s. In short, ‘Tunnel Vision’ illuminates wonderfully strange magic. To celebrate the EP, Stone Cold Fox plays at Mercury Lounge tomorrow (5/7). – Zach Weg
