Trella drops new indie pop single, "Retreat"

 With dulcet vocals, minimalist keyboard loops, and soaring choruses, indie pop artist Trella certainly has a firecracker of a song on her hands. "Retreat," the latest release from the Nashville-based artist, was written with her Jacksonville Florida roots in mind, and explores the places that we retreat to and can find respite, both physcially and within our minds. Check out the track streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "After Me" - Louie Louie

Louie Louie recently signed to Born Losers Records, a local label started by Suburban Living's Michael Cammarata and Chris Radwanski. Their full-length album, Friend of a Stranger, is set for physical and digital release on February 10, but you can take their new track, "After Me," for a spin below. With the quartet's latest single, the stylish ladies of Louie Louie continue to delve into the retro sonics of 50's/60's girl groups, incorporating their penchant for harmonic interplay, while finding a touch of grit in the bare-bones rhythm section and jangle of electric guitar strums. We think that they're definitely swoon-worthy. (Photo by Cassie Cummins)

NYC Record of the Month: The Shacks' self-titled EP

Feel like sending a chill through your old, mortal soul? Put on the eponymous, debut EP from The Shacks, which is our new, NYC Record of the month. Shannon Wise’s adorable, whispery voice and her simple but memorable melodies certainly charmed us to the core, but it was Max Shrager’s production, which updates the dream-pop genre in welcome ways, that brought the point home. Catch a cover of Ray Davies’ “Strange Effect,” which - slowed and stripped down - is the haunting opener. The more experimental “Orchids” – for which there is a music video, as shown below, follows lullaby "Left it With Moon," and shows off the musical variety and exploration for which The Shacks strive. More traditional dream-folk track “Tidal Waves” evokes dreams of summer, while the reggae-infused “Hands In Your Pockets” – with joyful bursts of slide guitar and innocent-sounding harmonies – bubbles with repressed youthful angst; a beat holding back a torrent of emotion. Least but not last, the collaborative track 'Strange Boy (with instrumental NYC band El Michels Affair), offers a glimpse into the ways this band's sound could evolve in the future with a more produced approach.

The Shacks just announced an early 2017 extensive tour in support of Chicano Batman – Will Sisskind

Sonya Kitchell releases single 'Funeral' about 2016 US elections

Since the appearance of Donald Trump on the US political scene, we've been receiving several submissions of protests songs, most of them filled with apocalyptic imagery and often also insults. We haven't published any of them, maybe because... we felt Michelle Obama was right when she said "when they go low, we go high." Single 'Funeral' by talented Brooklyn songwriter Sonya Kitchell certainly raises the level of the conversation, analyzing the complicated swirl of emotions brought by the 2016 elections, appropriately compared to the ultimate ritual of loss. Not new to the scene, Sonya earlier this year released her third full length album 'We Come Apart' after a long silence (her previous release is dated 2010), check out the video for single 'Mexico' below.

Sad13 Slugs It Out at Everybody Hits Dec. 12

After being advised to take a break from releases this year with her band Speedy Ortiz to avoid having fans get burned out, Sadie Dupuis found herself with an excess of songs that she had already written, inspiring her to record her debut solo effort as Sad13. Slugger (which is now available via Carpark Record) became a new lo-fi, electro-pop vehicle for Dupuis to tackle personal and societal issues. She is also currently on her first solo tour in support of the new LP, and it will be making a stop home this evening at Everybody Hits. She’ll be joined by tourmate Vagabon, the project of NYC guitarist and singer Laetitia Tamko, and dream-pop artist Emily Reo. (BTW: Unfortunately, Told Slant, who had been originally announced to perform, is no longer on the bill after getting picked up by Elvis Depressedly for their latest tour.) Everybody Hits, 529 W.
