The Saxophones release stunningly intimate debut LP

The debut full-length release, Songs of The Saxophones, by — you guessed it — husband-and-wife band The Saxophones is a tender and timeless piece of work. Filled with reflective and vulnerable lyrics (like “I know it’s not supposed to stay; / but still, I want my way.” from “Aloha,” and “I’m starting to lose / I’m falling asleep and I am sorry again” from “Singing Desperately,”) this work flickers like a candle flame. Sonically delicate and endlessly pleasant, this is a debut to remember. The Saxophones will play their next show in Los Angeles on July 14 at The Hotel Cafe. Stream the full album below. - Lilly Milman

Video Premiere: "A Cold Wind" - Dominy

Featured on the Wet Leather LP, we’re happy to premiere the new video for “A Cold Wind” from Dominy. Cruising in the twilight hours, director Lauren Tepfer captures the single's gradual, pensive, road-weary vibe. It wears into you with a steady, semi-spoken, tell-it-like-it-is wisdom, reinforced by the hearth-glowing harmony, the twinkle of the keys, and resonating, home-welcoming, peddle steel/slide. This feels like one of those songs that one basks in, after a long night and maybe a few beverages.  You can catch an intimate, acoustic set with Dominy next Friday, June 29 at The Music Ward, joined by Rentboy, Rylan, and All Boy/All Girl.

New Track: "The Red Door" - Restorations

"The Red Door" serves as the first single from Restorations long-awaited, forthcoming album, LP5000, which is scheduled for release on September 28 via Tiny Engines. After the initial wobble of keys, an anxious swell of guitar and percussion builds in anticipation. Addressing the anxiety and concern over the changes brought on by gentrification, the song is fueled by earnest, emotive energy. What are the remnants of past that last when the faces of longstanding neighborhoods are wiped away, and where do the people go? (Photo by Emily Dubin)

Wilder Maker shares video in reverse for new single (fronted by Katie Von Schleicher

In 2017, Wilder Maker released a two-track 7” with Saddle Creek Records featuring “New Streets” and “Only Child.” Those two tracks saw the group tightening up it’s ‘70s and roots rock inspired sound with the crisp vocals of keyboardist Katie Von Schleicher (who performs under her own name as well) coming more to the forefront. On Wilder Maker’s newest single “Drunk Driver”—which comes ahead of the band’s upcoming full-length Zion, out July 13 via Northern Spy Records—Von Schleicher’s voice leads the way again with excellent results. Over a hypnotic build Von Schleicher delivers lyrics with an emotional weight that sounds effortless: “I loved her with no thought for me, reckless as a drunk driver exhales and turns the key.” The motion of the arrangement toward an ending swirl of keys and guitar pairs well with the single’s video which plays an intimate party in reverse from the sleepy subway ride home through the pizza and shared drinks to the first greetings before sunset. Watch the video below. – Cameron Carr

Lewis also confirmed with The Deli that he is preparing to release his debut full length record later this summer, with his first single “Gauntlet In The Sun” gaining steady traction on Stereogum and Paste. The album was produced by Rod Sherwood (Au Revoir Simone) and mixed by Alex Lipsen (Phosphorescent, Kurt Vile). If “Gauntlet” is any indication of things to come, the album is sure to be an intense roots record for the summer. - Mackenzie Cummings-Grady
