Foreign Air drops new single "Better for It" and play U Street

With soaring vocals and infectious backbeats, DC-based Foreign Air brings you "Better for It," the latest single from the alt/synth-pop duo. Starting with simple, delicate piano, the tune's momentum gradually builds, eventually doubling down and releasing into lush layers of instrumentation by the time the chorus hits. "Better for It" is ripe-for-radio ear candy, and we'd be shocked if you're not humming along with the hook by the track's end.  Stream "Better for It" below, and catch them at the U Street Music Hall 10/27 with the Strumbellas. - Olivia Sisinni

Buzz Alert: serpentwithfeet to play Le Poisson Rogue Sept 30

NYC-based artist serpentwithfeet (aka Josiah Wise) is likely a man, but he delievers vocal lines with the intensity of something that lives outside the bounds of this dimension. This month he dropped his latest single "four ethers," a track that showcases both his almighty R&B vocal prowess, and his classically trained singing background. Wise's effortlessly florid singing would be remarkable on its own, but what's even more gripping is the music he pairs his vocals with. The instrumentals on "four ethers" charge forward with the gravitas of a requiem piece, slowly building in suspense only to torturously cut to a muted bass drum the moment you'd expect a big auditory payout. There is something solemn, something ethereal, perhaps supernal released in serpentwithfeet's music. Check out "four ethers" streaming below off of the newly released blisters EP, and be sure to catch him opening at Le Poisson Rouge on 9/30 for Jenny Hval.-Olivia Sisinni

Beccs celebrates release of 'Unfound Beauty' at Mercury on 09.25

NYC based singer songwriter Beccs may hail from Boston, but she sure strikes a very Manhattan chord with her first official video for single 'Therapy" (streaming below). Dripping with orchestral and even operaic character, this is a soulful song about the damage created by the duplicity of human impulses, written after a long period of healing, which - unsurprisingly - ended up bringing Beccs a period of intense artistic inspiration. 'Therapy' will be featured in the artist's upcoming album Unfound Beauty (out on September 21st), whose release will be celebrated at the Mercury Lounge on September 25th..

Goldfeather celebrates release of 'Patchwork Quilt' at Rockwood on 09.19

With their elegant blend of bluegrass, folk, and chamber music, Brooklyn indie-folk band Goldfeather is on a mission to enchant you with a perfectly interlaced entourage of instruments. Sarah Goldfeather’s violin, Nathan Koci’s banjo and accordion, Dylan McKinstry’s mandolin, Katie Martucci’s guitar, and Pat Swoboda’s double bass surround the sweet-sounding vibrancy of Sarah’s vocals with  dream-like arrangements. The band’s signature three-part vocal harmony serves to heighten Sarah’s fluctuating melodies, resolve musical tension, and add a rich texture to the group's overall sound. You can experience Goldfeather live at Rockwood Music Hall on September 19th, when they'll celebrate the release of their debut album Patchwork Quilt. - Ashley E. Muniz
