A gem from the submissions: Casual Male - "EP"

New York-based ensemble Casual Male’s sound is best epitomized by the cover of their most recent (and aptly titled) extended play, "EP": it's a photograph of a small, tree-covered island in the middle of a verdant river valley. There’s a nostalgic, summer-y quality across the release’s five tracks, not one evocative of an overdone Californian surf-rock trope, but something more nuanced and sonically diverse that reads as a tripped-out summer spent in the Adirondacks. The crux of Casual Male’s artistry emerges in their instrumental tightness - their ability to pull off disorienting tempo shifting numbers like “Resistance,” or incorporate a discordant synthy swirl behind screaming R&B guitar riffing on “Takin’ It Easy,” keeps the entirety of the EP interesting, while walking that careful tightrope between classic and contemporary. Here’s hoping this new group continues to flesh out their vintage vision in the near future. - Connor Beckett McInerney

New Fairy Godmother EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Spit It Out, the sophomore EP from Alyssa Thomas-led Fairy Godmother, is out today. The album embraces the melancholy of heartbreak, but counters the doldrums with a refreshing, optimistic instrumental backdrop. Exploring feelings with a level sense of clarity allows one to move on. The pain may temporarily weigh you down; there’s a hopeful, resilient breeze that lifts you back up and dusts you off.

Lindsay Clark: Crystalline

Folk artist Lindsay Clark is releasing a new album, Crystalline, tomorrow September 21st. The album maintains a nice balance between vulnerability and resiliency. Clark’s words are intimate and delicate. Her music is deeply grounded in a strong sense of self that permeates each song. Part of this stems from the religious aspects of her music. Like most folk music, the album deals with questions of faith and spirituality. In Crystalline, these questions are permeated with delightfully vibrant depictions of nature. In “Rosehips” Clark’s calm, steady voice bathes the song in a subtle sensuality. The song invites you to forget yourself within the evocative call of Clarke’s voice, and the vivid portraits she creates. Overall, the album envelops the listener like a warm blanket on a cool fall evening.

Lindsey Clark is playing tonight, September 20th, at the Holocene in honor of her upcoming album. The show will also feature Ezza Rose, Anna Hoone, Jacob Miller, and Malachi Graham.

New Restorations LP Available for Streaming

In advance of its September 28th release date via Tiny Engines, Restorations's new album, LP5000 (Tiny Engines), is now available for streaming via NPR’s First Listen. Composed closeness that reaches anthemic ends, the quintet navigates large scale issues in a way that still hits on a deeply personal level. The ability to combine precision while evoking raw, emotive energy and responses is a delicate balance. Restorations is set to headline The First Unitarian Church on Sunday, October 21, supported by Wild Pink and Low Dose. (Photo by Jess Flynn; Collage by Bruno Guerreiro)
