Caroline Mason Can Keep You Floating

Instrumentalist and composer Caroline Mason has an EP coming out this fall, and she released a new single this past March. The song is called “Floating”, and that's exactly the headspace the song takes you too. Sometimes it can be hard to maintain an ethereal, enigmatic space in a song with a faster pace. That doesn’t seem to be a problem Mason faces. Her voice echoes and floats above the percussion. Fittingly, this effect happens most noticeably as she sings about her feet being on the ground. It’s very easy to connect with the song. Mason is able to control the flow of both your mental intake of the song, and the physical responses your body has to her instrumentals.

Mason is responsible for all the instrumentation on this track. This becomes incredibly clear in the songs music video. The video consists of very close up shots of each instrument - her hands on the keyboard, her fingers on the guitar, her mouth as she sings. Occasionally we get wider shots of Mason, standing on a rocky dessert playing a single drum set, or the camera panning farther away as she strums on her guitar. It’s intimate and disconnecting, without feeling jarring. Check it out below.

New Swim Camp LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Barlow Hill, the new album from Tom Morris-led Swim Camp, is out now via Z Tapes. A innate, intimacy takes shelter in his latest release. Adorned in a sense of time-worn nostalgia, the delicate combination of beautifully subtle, folk instrumentation and genuine, memory-recalling lyrics brings the record's imageries into sharper focus. One is temporarily transported back with vivid, familiar detail, yet the wisdom of time & experience remains.

New Music Video: "Holy Moses" (Feat. Lesley Barth) - American Trappist

“Holy Moses” is the new single from American Trappist, and can be found on Joe Michelini's forthcoming EP Amuse-Oreille, Vol. 2. The track features NYC singer-songwriter Lesley Barth, and in the accompanying video, you find a disheveled Michelini drunkenly strolling towards the camera, sipping on some Tonewood Brewing. A breezy, humid, spring/summer-evening vibe sets the tone. However, that sense of ease is countered by the heaviness of guilt and seeking forgiveness, expressed in the lyrics. American Trappist is slated to co-headline Johnny Brenda’s on Saturday, June 29 with The Vernes and additional support from Grace Vonderkuhn.

New Track: "JWYTK" - Taylor Kelly

Singer-songwriter Taylor Kelly crafts smooth seamless lyrical lines on her latest single, “JWYTK”. A soulful warmth radiates despite being the bearer of bad breakup news. Locked into the ever-expanding groove, one becomes invigorated by the soul-jazz hybrid. Within those apologetic tones, an optimism emerges, brought into the light by the compact, richly detailed, instrumental arrangement.

Stephen Day plays EXIT/IN on 04.29

A name like Stephen Day has about as much rarity in this world as one like John Mayer or Sam Smith, but like those other common-named artists, Day has one of those voices that propels him into the realm of rarity. Day's 2018 single "Dancing In The Street" may not have the dance groove of the song of the same name by Jagger and Bowie, but its soulfulness -- which shows off Day's vocal chops -- intoxicated listeners when it hit the Spotify Global Viral Chart last year. For 2019, two new singles from Day have hit the Internet: "For Life (Take You Out, Treat You Right)" has a bop to it, while "Twenty Two and Some Change" has a driving acoustic beat. Day and his voice will grace the EXIT/IN on April 29th in a set with supporting act Pacific; the show will kick off a summer full of touring for Day, where he'll hit up venues throughout the Midwest and Northeast. Take a listen to "For Life (Take You Out, Treat You Right)" below. - Will Sisskind
