Piano duo St. Dawn in Slumber debut their dreamy EP

Nashville's Isaac (The Arcadian Wild) and Ella Horn met through a musical conversation discussed through the voices of two pianos in adjacent practice rooms, leading to marriage a few months later and beautiful music they are now sharing with the world. As st. dawn in slumber, an instrumental piano outfit, the couple is releasing their debut EP,  My Heart Awakened in a Dream, via Vohnic Music. With this effort, and future EPs already in the works, the Horns hope to "create space for rest and reflection" through "a collection of soothing, evocative piano pieces that we could use to sweet-talk sleep and to charm ourselves awake." If you're looking for music for late night meditation, look no further. - Chris Thiessen

Lizard Kisses opens for Florist at The Park Church Co-op on 10.27

If you’re a fan of Florist’s ambient folk melodies and subtle production, you’re probably pretty excited about the group’s latest album and October 27th headlining show at The Park Church Co-op. You’ll probably also fall for opener Lizard Kisses. The Brooklyn collective’s music has a similar melancholic minimalism, though veering in its own directions. Light on percussion, heavy on dual low-high vocals, and full of charming instrumentation like synth and glockenspiel, Lizard Kisses’ sound is somber and heartwarming at the same time. Get to the show early and see if you can resist falling for them. – Cameron Carr

Emily Yacina brings soft, dreamy bedroom pop to the Park Church Co-op on 10.27

New York college student Emily Yacina has been quietly uploading music to Bandcamp since 2011, making her part of what’s becoming – for better or for worse-- a somewhat ubiquitous subgenre of bedroom pop: DIY dream-writers. But unlike a lot of those artists, Yacina actually leaves her bedroom. And she gets pretty far, like all the way to Alaska far. That’s where she lived this summer, working at an environmental nonprofit. Her most recent release “Heart Sky” reflects that; it’s expansive but intimate, vast but quaint, like the state that inspired it. It’s wandering melodies most likely mirror her exploration of the state, and most definitely mirror our exploration of the album. She'll be performing live at a very interesting event inside a New York church on October 27th with like-minded artists Florist and Lizard Kisses. It seems like the ideal setting for music that's this quiet and intimate. - Rachel Kerr

Wheetay brings semi-electronic soul to The Tin Roof (10.11) & The Country (10.13)

The funky, stripped-down Southern soul made by emerging act Wheetay—fronted by Thomas White—is exactly what the Nashville scene needs right now. White takes on the responsibility of writing, recording, producing, mixing, and mastering all the tracks, yet he still considers the project a collaborative effort as his friends play a role in inspiring his tracks and bringing them to life. Explained in his own words as a “lo-fi approach to high fidelity music,” Wheetay is finally taking to the stage with a lineup of live shows, in which he will combine live instruments with looping tracks. The sultry, semi-electronic sound created by White and co. is fresh, fun, and a nice change of pace for Music City. If you can’t make his show tonight at the Tin Roof, then definitely make sure to catch him opening for Willie Shaw at The Country on the 13th. - Lilly Milman

Grooms hosts Brooklyn Bazaar Release Show on 10.25

Returning with a fifth album set to further the band’s exploration of ambience and shoegazey guitar effects, Grooms brings the music to Brooklyn Bazaar on October 25. Lead singles from Exit Index showcase swelling synths amidst the moody wash of sound without straying from Grooms’ usual noisy fare. The band’s brigade of fuzz and other-worldly effects is ideal for live shows where the onslaught of guitar and drums crashes into you with the force of a brick wall. One of the few brick walls you should be excited to crash into. – Cameron Carr
