Santa Cruz's Marty O'Reilly releases folksy 'Stereoscope' LP

In Santa Cruz-based Marty O’Reilly’s most recent LP Stereoscope, he takes Americana to another level, blending delicate violin arrangements with bluesy vocals and soulful harmonies to create something startlingly beautiful. The dynamic songwriting of O’Reilly—who is always joined by bandmates Chris Lynch, Ben Berry, and Matt Goff—takes the listener by surprise, as he breaks out of the tropes of his genre that would otherwise restrict such progression. The opening track “Firmament” (streaming below) offers a glimpse into the rest of the album, which is a complicated and well-crafted addition to a genre whose fans constantly think they have finally ‘seen it all.’ Marty O’Reilly and his band are currently on a cross-country tour and will be heading down to SXSW this year. - Lilly Milman

New Tapes & Tubes EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Tapes & Tubes, a.k.a. Austin Potter, recently shared his new EP Horse Trailer. Draped in an eerie, cinematic, western-folkie simplicity, the hushed, secret-delivering vocals reverberate and then vaporize. Those bare atmospherics allow one to slow down, collect their thoughts, and maybe flashback to the unresolved questions of the past. Tonight, Potter is part of a lineup at South Philly's The Pharmacy that also includes Slenko & McKeys, Alpha_Alpha, Suuduer, and Automatic Colors.

New Track: "Ruby Red" - Dream Safari

Chris Coulton, a.k.a. Dream Safari, has returned with a new single, “Ruby Red”. A pattern of strings peacefully wades into the momentous, wave-crashing groove. Taking a breath in a time of assessment and cataloging points in the past with an eye on what lies ahead, the song delightfully advances. Dream Safari will be sharing a billing this evening with Max Swan, Rover Rover, and DJ Sylo at MilkBoy.

New Hurry LP Available for Streaming

Every Little Thought, the new full-length album from Hurry, will officially be released on February 23 via Lame-O Records. In advance, the trio recently shared a video of themselves sitting consumed by their phones, with a sign that reads "EVERY LITTLE THOUGHT Hurry 'world premiere'" hanging behind them while the album plays in its entirety. The collection of songs continues the group's trend of producing crisp, melodic, personally-insightful music that moves with a loose but purposeful pace. The tracks go with the flow; however, they do manage to soar when the opportunity knocks. The band will be hosting its record release show at Everybody Hits on Saturday, February 24, supported by Amanda X and Worriers' Lauren Denitzio performing solo.

Sounds of searching from Americana artist Lauren Calve

Solid voice, solid backing band, well thought-out lyrics dealing with feeling lost and out of place; all in all Lauren Calve makes a convincing Americana artist. “Be my home” she implores on the refrain to her latest single of the same name, as if she is being driven to desperation by feelings of being out of place. On the track, Calve yearns for the same thing every Americana artist yearns for, an idyllic, peaceful, rural America that probably never was, but nevertheless lives on in the popular imagination as something to give people hope for a different world.

You can catch Lauren Calve March 9th at Black Cat.
