SIRINTIP brings complex jazz-influenced tunes to Trans Pecos 02.07

It’s easy to talk about personal and cultural background when breaking down the music of SIRINTIP. Their frontwoman’s childhood journey from Thailand to Sweden and then to New York is definitely a source of inspiration. However, the complex and vibrant sound of SIRINTIP is also a product of honed technical skill and a deep love of jazz, a passion that they were able to share at a recent three day jazz singing workshop at New Jersey’s OCVTS Performing Arts Academy. SIRINTIP will play Trans-Pecos with Elijah Fox, Rosemary Minkler and Devon Yesberger on February 7; check out a great example of their adventurous arrangements in their latest video for “Don’t Give Up”, below. - Sunny Betz

Daisy the Great shares quiet single "famous" + plays string of shows in NYC

It can be easy to overlook music that gets released during the glut of year-end lists pushed out around the holidays. This is especially true for music that appears as small and unassuming as that of Daisy the Great. However, their newest single “famous” definitely deserves reexamination. Combining twee aesthetics and simple vocal harmonies, the duo packs quaint imagery into a haunting track. Ugly sweaters, gumboil rings and fitting into new shoes all act as a disarmer before the hook asks what the point of life is if there’s no possibility of fame. There’s no denying this is a straightforward presentation, with plucky guitars gently strumming along, yet it’s the clash between the hartfelt folksy delivery and the mundane topic that fills the latter with a deeper existential meaning. Daisy the Giant celebrated their album release party at Baby’s All Right on Jan. 26 and will go on to play several dates in the NYC area between February and March. -Tucker Pennington

Teulu

Teulu’s music is a soft place to lay your head at night. It’s quietly but powerfully hopeful, the sort of music we need to get by in today’s world. “For The Learner” has a damp, earthy feel to it. It’s similar to the sensation of digging your fingers through damp grass, or the taste of a sweet, yet tannic tea. The soft, lilting tones take you gently by the hand and lead you into the best scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Each song infuses the listener with the gentle gray skies we wake up to most days. It's hard to capture the beauty of sunshine melting into cloudy skies, but Teulu does a wonderful job.
