King Corduroy drops music video for Americana track "Workin' for a Livin"

Americana artist King Corduroy will release his new EP Avalon Ave. on August 16th; to preview the drop, he's released the single "Workin' for a Livin", along with its music video. A little rootsy and swampy, "Workin' for a Livin" mixes a little Texas blues and Southern rock with sounds from the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans' French Quarter. For the better part of the past decade, King Corduroy has written songs that reflect the world around him, and "Workin' for a Livin" helps to tell the stories of people doing whatever it takes to get by in the somewhat unstable world we live in today. Take a look at the music video for the single, which features little clips of people on the job doing what they can to survive. - Will Sisskind

Ariel Wang to release second single “House Upon a Hill”

This August 3rd at the Starline Social Club, Ariel Wang releases her second single, “House Upon a Hill,” off of her forthcoming album Bridges. The set will feature her string chamber orchestra, The Composer Arranger Performer Orchestra (CAPO). Wang's music has simple folk melodies with an orchestral feel and although the vocals are at times not the strongest component of these songs, they are enveloped by a warm chorus of violins, booming cello and compelling drumlines. Wang’s music feels like the soundtrack to a powerful moment and listening, watching, you can’t help but feel overwhelmed in the right kind of way. Join the band at Starline, where they’ll be opening for Meerna’s album release. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

07.18: Grace Ives brings lo-fi synthpop to Elsewhere

Lo-fi synthpop artist Grace Ives released her second album -- appropriately titled 2nd -- this past April. It received critical acclaim from sites like Pitchfork, where writer Sasha Geffen compared Ives' music to LCD Soundsystem for its tracks' electronic backbeats and succinct length. The album could attract resonate with the fans of James Murphy's band, but also folks into Ariel Pink, or Slingshot Dakota -- or any artist or band with a knack for sharp songwriting and explorative musical arrangements. Ives will perform on July 18th at Elsewhere on a bill with UK-based soul artist Tirzah; go discover both artists for yourself if you haven't yet. Take a listen to Ives' "Icing on the Cake" below. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "bed" - Bad Heaven Ltd.

"bed" is the latest single to emerge from strength, the forthcoming album from Bad Heaven Ltd., which is due out on August 2. John Galm (formerly of Snowing) shares that the song "is about being eaten alive. It’s about the dream of relief that comes from living with a chronic mental illness.” The recording hovers between a low-key, illuminated contemplation and bursts of unencumbered feedback. The dichotomy of sound between delicate moments and distorted ferocity provides a multidimensional, musical image.
