Yohuna prepares new album, play Elsewhere on 5/23

The vision of singer/songwriter Johanne Swanson (who performs as Yohuna) takes the introspection often found in personal songs and reflects it on both elements of nature and the personal relationships inspiring it. Her latest album “Mirroring” is set for release on June 7, with two songs now available for preview. Moving away from a previous reliance on synthesizers, Yohuna relies here more on guitars as the predominant instrumental force. The title track floats along pitch-bended chords rivaling the best of any dreamgaze practitioner. Ethereal, almost aloof vocals deliver poetic three word lines on the verses before a call and response chorus reveals the song's cascading vocals hook. Easy laid back drumming gives way to a 16th-note high-hat pattern, adding rhythmic motion at points within the overall dreamy feel. “Rain & Prairie Snow” opts for a cleaner guitar sound while adding simple, reverant keyboards allowing for more emphasis on a choral vocal sound (enhanced by long-time collaborator Emily Yacina). Yohuna's May tour arrives at Elsewhere in Brooklyn on 5/23. - Dave Cromwell

LVL UP's Mike Caridi debuts solo project The Glow with two new singles.

You may know Mike Caridi from his previous band LVL UP. If you enjoyed the indie rock group (which dissolved last September), you might want to look into his solo project The Glow. In between LVL UP albums, Caridi was writing songs that drew life from the same lo-fi vein that was supplying his former group. Now his songs are finally seeing the light of day: the first two singles are out now and they shine brightly on their own. “Weight of Sun” has a snappy rhythm and bright acoustic guitars that give it an upbeat nature. “I Am Not Warm” is driven by Caridi’s deeply-layered vocals, a distorted lead guitar, and dense drums. The hazy feel of the tracks, along with their grungy edge make Caridi New York’s answer to L.A.’s rising lo-fi star Justus Proffit. Check out “I Am Not Warm” below. - Rene Cobar

Retro pop duo Fly By Midnight debuts video for single "Waiting Tables"

A laid-back afternoon in the 'burbs with your buddy is something many New Yorkers rarely experience, if ever. So it's somewhat refreshing to stumble upon a video by a NYC band that's just about that: walking in the middle of the streets, dancing on rooftops and in empty parking lots, and picking up Wendy’s are only some of the "adventures" duo Fly By Midnight indulges in to the sound of their own feel-good retro pop. With its addictive, soulful melodies and gentle uptempo rhythms, this single is so uplifting  that it can make even a regular day in the 'burbs feel special. The track and its accompanying video are a preview of the bands' LP, scheduled for later this year. - Rene Cobar
