Folk duo Gentle Temper premiere endearing live EP, “Sleep It Off”

Gentle Temper, a self-described “Ocean Folk” duo comprised of guitarist/vocalist Ryan Meier and bassist/vocalist Marion Earley, have released Sleep It Off, a charming documentary/live EP that captures the songwriters performing live in the studio, and follows them through the streets of Boston with a series of short interviews. Between elegant performances of the harmony laced “Mouthful of Saltwater” and the earnest, smokey folk of “Heavy Handed”, Meier and Earley describe how they met, their creative process, and their interpretation of Ocean Folk, ultimately concluding Sleep It Off with a spirited performance of the epic “Sunnyside.” Check out the video below. -Charley Ruddell





Fresh Buzz: Anna Shoemaker's soul mashup is worth the hype

Who has the guts to mash up Big Sean, Kendrick, and Chance the Rapper, AND perform said-mashup with an acoustic guitar? Anna Shoemaker does. The pop artist's downtempo cover has garnered almost 700,000 plays, and she's just released the VHS-filmed music video. shoemaker has quietly released covers on SoundCloud over the last 4 years, and the buzz surrounding her definitely isn't undeserved. She recently signed with Steve Madden's 5Towns Records, and plans to release new music next year. Anna Shoemaker's striking voice holds its own even without production elements, but we are interested and excited to hear her with a fuller pop sound. - Geena Kloeppel

Pop duo MISTY MTN debuts with single "Greener"

Earlier this week, new pop duo MISTY MTN released their first single "Greener" after weeks of teasing the release on Facebook. MISTY MTN consists of Montana-based actress and vocalist Morissa Trunzo and Brooklyn-based composer Lucas Segall. They blend the soft folk music of Big Sky Country with the dark synthetic electricity of big city synths and samplers. "Greener" showcases this sound through Trunzo's and Segall's entrancing harmonies and sparkling guitars tucked into pillows of bubbling synth sounds. The duo doesn't have any shows lined up yet, but for now, you can stream "Greener" below. - Will Sisskind

Project Diem brings dreamy synth-pop to Alphaville, 12.13

Project Diem offers a different vision of the synth-pop aesthetic, one of lush melodies countered by delicate synths and soulful vocals. Refreshingly, the vocals are left relatively untouched by reverb and are left to deliver themselves earnestly. The duo works to combine a synth-driven sensibility with an emotional quality that is both raw yet approachable. The "mid-fi" production gives voice to a youthful and surprisingly catchy angst, one that blends in with the changing seasons and failed relationships. Make sure to check out Project Diem at Alphaville, 12.13. - Amanda Ogea





Soft Glas tours with Sports, brings electric soul to Mercury on 12.13 and Baby's on 12.14

The music of Soft Glas -- a.k.a. producer and songwriter Joao Gonzalez -- evokes dreamy and funky vibes that both excite and chill the nerves. It's music that works well in a full length format, and Joao seems aware of it, since Orange Earth, released in September, is the project's third LP. Live, the musician plays/samples/loops a series of instruments on top of electronic tracks, and does it in an entertaining fashion - so much so that Soft Glas has was recently asked to tour in support of Oklahoma-based group Sports, playing shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore. He'll return to NYC on December 13th at Mercury Lounge, and then on the 14th, in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right. Catch either show if you can; otherwise, stream Soft Glas's latest single "Perks of Being a Sunflower" below. Close your eyes, and daydream. - Will Sisskind
