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)

New Track: "Withoxt Yxu" - Welcome Center

Jesse Smith & Aaron Sternick have come together to bring us Welcome Center. The duo recently shared its debut EP Disorder. Album standout, “Withoxt Yxu,” creates a humid, electro-pop, key-percussion ripple. In a daydreaming state of limbo, one feels stuck in a situation. The trapped, melancholy perspective of the words is nicely counterbalanced by the liquidy dance groove.

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.

Renny Conti brings his indie folk to Mercury Lounge 06.27

Renny Conti describes his music as “indie folky songs for your heart,” and there is indeed a fireside-in-the-winter kind of comfort in his acoustic guitar-based tracks. He tackles heavy topics of in a subdued, quiet way. In “How I’ll Die,” Conti laments “Focus on the rhythm / Of where our life has went / All i can think about / While you're so far away from it.” It’s rain-on-the-windowpane sadness masked by the breeziness of indie folk anthems, and you can catch him live at Mercury Lounge on June 27. -Lily Crandall
