Fletcher C Johnson remembers his Long Strange Trip on "Portland"

Few continue to “walk the walk” of the folk musician’s talk quite like Brooklyn transplant Fletcher C Johnson, and his latest single “Portland” makes this fact abundantly known. A nasal diatribe of crashing on couches (and stints on the street) comprise Johnson’s narrative of the years he lived in track’s titular city, interwoven amongst lazy, nostalgia-inducing slide guitar. The lyrics earnest and occasionally self-critical nature, paired with Johnson’s unique timber and penchant for bluegrass soundscapes evoke the proto-alternative country sounds of Jerry Garcia; it’s fitting given Johnson has certainly been on a Long Strange Trip before coming home to roost in Brooklyn, New York. Give it a listen below, and keep an eye out for his forthcoming LP Are You Feelin’ It, dropping October 14th. -Connor Beckett McInerney





Affectionately releases fall demos

You know someone’s album will be good when you hear their demos and think, oh well now that’s sounding pretty solid. That said, Affectionately just released a wee little collection of demos--some of which you may have heard on other albums before--and it’s a true delight of a listen. “Bedroom Waltz” is a personal favorite, but they’re all impressive with fun with disorienting distortions and pure, pleasing vocals. It’s always fun to hear a little gentler behind-the-scenes of one of the Bay Area’s finer secrets. Check ‘em out and don’t wreck ‘em out. Stay tuned for the full album out, comin' in soon. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





Aaron Noj defies his surroundings in latest single "M​.​O​.​T​.​M."

We are always digging deep into New England's talent garden to find rising artists from all corners of the region: we have unearthed a March gem we want to share with you. Derry, New Hampshire's Aaron Noj released his single "M​.​O​.​T​.​M." with little fanfare and in relative obscurity but its bite should not be ignored as it leaves a lasting mark. Aaron rebels against the tranquility of Derry's quaint Main Street and the town's overall serenity with sharp grunge guitar chords that reverberate violently. Aaron's distant voice is melancholic, angst-fueled, entrancing—grunge music's preference. The culminating instrumental breakdown is destructive and has a lo-fi sound to it that delivers a cathartic finish. Whatever emotion you are feeling, Aaron's track will be sure to discover it and animate it. We are looking forward to some show listings from this alternative artist; stream “M​.​O​.​T​.​M.” below. - Rene Cobar





BODEGA debuts new EP "Shiny New Model"

Ahead of their forthcoming release Shiny New Model, New York garage heroes BODEGA headlined Brooklyn’s Market Hotel September 28th. The EP’s title track is a sunny and energetic romp, characterized by an uneasy sense of self—lead singer Bodega Ben riffs on the built-in obsolesce of technology (and people) while dropping metaphysical bombs, like “every woman and man is a microcosm of lust.” Watch the video below, and catch BODEGA’s wild, philosophical ride this Saturday alongside Native Sun, and Kahiem Rivera.
