Melissa Mills spills raw emotion in new single "Lose My Cool"

Melissa Mills has a new single out, and it is classic Melissa Mills. “Lose My Cool” has an emotional edge to it that is hard to ignore: Melissa’s passionate vocals grip you from the start, and combined with a luscious blend of synths swells and smooth-cool rhythms drag you to the places of her mind where healing is taking place. Fury and acceptance exist in the track, and both are acknowledged with honesty and raw emotion—Melissa’s specialty. Stream this new track from the Boston-based artist below. - Rene Cobar





Sour Widows’ “Tommy” video hits the waves

Last week Oakland-based Sour Widows released one of their first singles, “Tommy” off their upcoming self-titled EP. The EP was recorded at Fantasy Studios just before they closed (and in part over at Decibelle Studios in SF). The song is dreamy and full of hooks and melodies we crave.

Rahkii “No Capes”

Rahkii has released the first single, “No Capes”, from her forthcoming debut album Capes which is due out February 21st.

This is just third single from the talented emcee and singer in as many years, but a great indicator of the powerful direction this album is heading in.





Surnames debut with gripping record "These Days"

The music of Boston’s latest standout band Surnames is sweet caramel, hot chocolate, gooey marshmallow—whatever decadence you can think of. Surnames’ debut record These Days grips you immediately with its smooth indie rock, tinged with a surfy vibe and sprinkled with natural sounds that enrich each atmospheric track. From the groovy dance number “Can’t Take It With You” to the funky-intricate guitar picking in “California,” the record is sensual, fun, and very much liberating. Even slower tracks like “To Wolves” drip with emotion as they swell into euphoric breakdowns highlighted by the soulful vocals of Liam Anastasia-Murphy, who has put together a group of talented individuals for a record worth betting on in 2020. Stream the romp-igniting track “Can’t Take It With You” below and let loose. - Rene Cobar





Dog Park sniffs success with debut record "Scotty"

Unorthodox as can be, the music of Maine collective Dog Park is a ride into the sublime unknown. The group’s debut full-length record Scotty is a playground of short but meaty sonic treats that range from gruff garage rock to full-blown noise rock: tracks like “Red Cabbage” are tastefully rhythmic with their lo-fi coating while songs like “Walter” are gooey in pace with lead basslines to savor. The record’s lead single “Zebra” slithers along with its industrial-psychedelic influences, contorting into a noise rock brevity that you cannot help play again. The group jams it out in the album’s final track “Horsey,” and the euphoria that surely sparked this record is exposed with gusto. Since not a single track makes it past the two-minute mark, this album is a bag of treats for the feral (or adorable) dog in you. Sit! And stream the record below. - Rene Cobar
