Umi Copper's debut single "All"

Within the first verse of Umi Copper’s single, “All”, the singer asserts an engaging mixture of soul and R&B--his soothing vocals flow and enchant. The track draws from an emotive range of tones, showcasing lively percussion reminiscent of 70’s afrobeat, and ethereal, orchestrated harmonies, that lusciously serve his lyrics about enduring and unconditional love. The track marks the debut of Copper, who has previously worked among local soul producers. Listen to the new single “All” below. -Tafari Lemma

Cruel Youth assists on holywater's debut track "Hush"

Though we've seen quite a few musical icons make headlines in the fashion world *coughKanyecough*, it's quite rare to see someone from fashion make the switch to music. Enter holywater, a photographer, fashion curator and the head of creative collective Virgin Gold Cult, who is now also making her foray into music under the same name. And not content to simply get her toes wet, she has dove in head first with "Hush," a moody, yet upbeat collaboration with Cruel Youth. Over the track's party-ready instrumental, Teddy Sinclair of CY sings with fiery passion, trying to rekindle an old flame that seems to have burned them both out long ago. "Hush" is a very promising start to holywater's musical career, and is hopefully only the beginning of exciting collaborations in the future. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Maurice and the Stiff Sisters Thank the Fans

Gratitude is essentially a virtue. It used to be the norm for bands and solo musicians to have a particular hubris about them-a cocky air craving the praise of their fans for oftentimes no reason at all. Thankfully artists aren't as much like that anymore. Power pop quintet Maurice and the Stiff Sisters show this, demonstrating how farther a good relationship with the audience can take you in addition to talent.

The group hasn't been around for very long. In about a year's time since they've been a band they've already played to masses of people, like at the Kenton Street Fair, as well as to pretty varying crowds like patrons of the southeast country bar Landmark Saloon. Maurice and the Stiff Sisters have a type of accessible sound that's easy for all crowds to enjoy. Their power pop is not only delightfully catchy, but also mixes in romantic soulful notes that make them even more lovable. 

Seeing Maurice and the Stiff Sisters is just as enjoyable as listening to them, which in part helped them become one of our June artists of the month. You can catch their next set at the end of July for an ACLU benefit at Dig A Pony, along with Bubblecats and Snowblind Traveler. Until then, enjoy their performance video for "Our Old Haunts" and an adoring acceptance video for their win.
