"Souvenirs" is a gorgeous, wistful pop/rock song

 Robinson has got the whole hook-thing down. Their new song "Souvenirs" has hooks galore- vocal hooks, guitar hooks, their verses are catchy, their choruses are even catchier... And on top of that, the song is tastefully produced, helped along by a lovely rhythm section and some ethereal, washed-out guitars. Be sure to check out the rest of their latest album, Another Life, which offers up more of the same easy-going, silky pop/rock. I'll be humming "Souvenirs" all week, and that's more than okay. -Geena Kloeppel

A country tune to make you cackle: "The Left Lane Is for Passing" by Ellen Angelico

 Ellen Angelico's voice is an eyebrow raiser- it's incredibly blunt, a little sarcastic, but mostly, Angelico is so self-assured that she'll make you smile. "The Left Lane Is for Passing" is not only a country bop, but also features a choir, a jazzy upright bass line and this sly lyric: "The left lane's for passing / the right lane is for asses like you." The whole song is really just a burn disguised as a country tune, and I'm here for it. Angelico's full record Haven't Changed Much is out tomorrow, 6/25. -Geena Kloeppel

Welles plays the Basement 6/28

 Welles is from a very small town in Arkansas called Ozark, which gives context for the nostalgia at the forefront of his song "Seventeen." It starts small, with Welles' voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar, but builds into a gritty, anything-goes rock chorus that feels like it represents the emotional conundrum of being a teenager. "I can see past your short hair / tellin' me that you don't care / he ain't here but he's somewhere / I'm all fucked up so I don't care" are some of my favorite lines in song to date. A little honesty goes a long way. Catch Welles live at the Basement 6/28. -Geena Kloeppel

Beth White is sweetly soulful in 'Soul Evolution', plays Douglas Corner Cafe 6/22

 Beth White's record Soul Evolution is lush, sweet, and warm. "Work This Out" makes use of a tasteful horn section and showcases a gospel choir, and "If It Makes You Happy" is so delightfully serene that it made me smile. But easy-going songwriting and arrangement aside- White's voice is stunning. It's powerful but not in an intrusive way, and her vocal runs are nuanced and stretched so that you just want to hear more of them. White takes influence from Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse, but infuses a dose of sunshine. She plays the Douglas Corner Cafe tomorrow, 6/22. -Geena Kloeppel
