Maggie Rogers takes things to the next level with trilogy of videos and tour

After being blessed by Pharrell Williams' seal of approval, which got a lot of eyes on her and ears on her track 'Alaska,' NYC's songwriter Maggie Rogers is trying to capitalize on the attention by unveiling a trilogy of videos featuring that single and two new songs. The second one of the series, 'Dog Years' (streaming below), resumes the atmospheric, electronic-pop-soul sound of 'Alaska', including the subtle African music influences. Maggie has also announced three legs of a winter/early spring tour that will take her - between January and April 2017 - from the east coast to Europe to the west coast and back, with a final date at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on April 11. We are sure the third video will drop just before the tour begins, in early January.

Dr. Something Writes the Folky Prescriptions We Need

Atmospheric in every sense of the word, Dr. Something's minimalist chamber folk pop takes on strange artistic sensibilities with aural novelty mixed with a slight cat-crazy Tumblr aesthetic. Clarinet, keys and accordian are the gold, silver and bronze winners of her instrumental outfit. Yet it's the eclectically toned pitch of Miss Dr. Something herself, Alison Dennis, that elevates its sapid qualities.

Since Dennis is well versed in all things musically weird (previously coming from the strange Dr. Something & the Pipin’ Hot Love Engines and Coney Island Cartel), the ways in which Dr. Something satiates this oft empty hole left in the market make sense. Her self described "sad bastard piano pop" could very well inspire some bummer feelings if you're in the headspace for such, but it's tracks like the indelilble "Imperfect Skull" off of 2015's Tomorrow's Just Fiction, to the hauntingly fun filled "Here Comes Count Dracula" from October of this year, that make it hard to be sad.

Having a sound unlike that of run-of-the-mill folk pop, Dr. Something holds high regard in local odd sounds, making music integral to keeping Portland weird.

New Music Video: "A Message to Your Jealous Boyfriend" - Sad13

We recently shared the '90s-style group dance video for the consent-pop anthem, "Get A Yes," from Sad13, a.k.a. Sadie Dupuis of Spedy Ortiz, earlier this month. Well, she's already back with more visual stimulation and her touring bandmates for "a message to your jealous boyfriend". The single "is about how important it is to trust your partner’s friends, regardless of those friends’ gender identity (because to do anything else is some heteronormative toxic B.S.!)." She also recruited BuzzFeed Video's Sara Rubin, whom Sadie befriended as a child at Buck's Rock Performing and Creative Arts Camp in Central Connnecticut, to direct the video. "A Message to Your Jealous Boyfriend" can be found on Dupuis' solo debut LP, Slugger, out now via Carpark Records.

New Music Video: "Under The Rug" - Steady Hands

To honor the arrival of their double LP Rude Boys Of Bar Rock (Lame-O Records), Steady Hands, who is fronted by Modern Baseball drummer Sean Huber, just shared a new music video for album opener "Under The Rug". Directed by Emily Dubin, the camera focuses on the adorable "#1 daug," Bruce, enjoying a lazy afternoon with his favorite toy and a vinyl copy of the group's new record. Keeping it simple; it becomes more eye candy for animal lovin' YouTubers. (Photo by Jessica Flynn)
