Ms Mr's Lizzy Plapinger unveils debut single "Tightrope" under the LPX moniker

About five years ago, NYC's Ms Mr (now on an indefinite hiatus) were one of the first acts to kickstart the soul music reinassaince - single 'Hurricane' quite literally took the scene by storm, at the time. Lizzy Plapinger, the band's singer (and co-founder of label Neon Gold), is now returning with a solo, self released and self produced project called LPX. First single "Tightrope" and press photos conjure up an image and sound a lot more aggressive than the one her break out band got us accustomed to: "I'm here to assert myself - harder, louder, and stronger - as a woman and an artist" - she states in the single's press release.

Mood Music: New Move - "The City Life (ft. Chanti Darling & Ripley Snell)"

Dishing out insatiable classic pop for the last five or so years, New Move go about their creative exhibition employing hints of glam, indie rock and lurid doo wop. Their new album, Back in the Habit, drops today and it features a variety of local artists, including Illmaculate, King Who, Radiation City and more. For the track we're sharing today, we're focusing on this banger with Chanti Darling and Ripley Snell on the mic.

"The City Life" has an interesting beat from Cameron Spies on keys, Jesse Bettis on guitar and bass, and a soulful vocal melody from Chanti Darling that lasts throughout the track, playing with some very silkily delivered bars from Snell. Everything about it is just delightful, and worthy of many repeated plays.

New Move are having a release show for Back in the Habit tonight at Mississippi Studios along with some sets from Y La Bamba and Hustle & Drone. Minden, Boone Howard and the Domestics will all be making guest appearances as well.

New Track: "Against The Odds" (Feat. Bilal) - Hezekiah

Another single from Hezekiah’s EP Gods has emerged. Featuring Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter/musician/producer Bilal, “Against The Odds” is shrouded in ominous tones, cultivating a suspenseful air as Hezekiah demonstrates a determined, serious, confession-inflected delivery. Bilal's smooth vocals provide a glimpse of hope before the emcee's powerful verses push through with an honest unfiltered take.

Hollie Hammel releases debut EP

Don't Wake Me Up is a body of work that both stimulates and soothes a musically curious mind. The songs are at once disarming and complex, blending a smooth, soulful voice with complex chord changes and playful, dancing melodies that skip lightly across the instrumentation of members of Nashville's more seasoned neo jazz/funk/R&B/soul outfit, Dynamo. Hammel's vocal talent is undeniable, with striking similarities to the vocal timbre of early St. Vincent records like Marry Me but with rounder edges that bring Nora Jones to mind. The overall complexity and combination of jazz, funk, and soul elements come together in these songs to form a masterful and cohesive piece that just makes sense to any appreciative listener. - Andrew Strader

Buzz Alert: Jelani Sei Unleashes Ethereal Funk in New EP, Kaaria

Transcendental indie-funk band Jelani Sei has released a genre-bending second EP in Kaaria, a study in ethereal soundscapes mixed with soulful vocals and nasty funk grooves.  The vocal work is exemplary, with complimenting performances from Kayana Guity and Evan Lawrence that work seemlessly together to create a unified voice.  Catchy hooks, inventive songwriting, and tight instrumentals make Kaaria a release that is not to be missed. -Brian Varneke
