The Edwards "Slow Fade" b/w "Giddings"

The Edwards have released a new single, "Slow Fade" b/w "Giddings", and are donating all proceeds to fundraising campaigns to support the staffs of local Chicago businesses currently closed due to the Coronavirus. This is the groups second single and first since 2018's "Nothern States".

This is the work of Kyle Maurisak, Chris Murphy, Stuart MacFadyen, Emma McCall, and Chris DePorter.


Wildered "Deep March Frost"

Wildered is the atmospheric rock of Nate Bjorge. He recently released a new single called "Deep March Frost", the first new music from him since 2019's single "Your Ghost".

Bjorge recently released a video where he breaks down the writing and production process of this single.


Dav Paris "Somedays (I Got Issues)"

Dav Paris recently released his second single of 2020, the Hip Hop influenced "Somedays (I Got Issues)". The song is accompanied by the Michael Kettenbeil directed video below.

Back in February Paris dropped an introductory track called "Hello World" and made it clear that he is approaching music in a new way this year. Both tracks follow-up his 2018 debut EP "Lost" and demonstrate a more introspective approach to songwriting.


Damon Locks & Black Monument Ensemble "Stay Beautiful"

International Anthem has released a new and timely single, "Stay Beautiful", from Damon Locks & The Black Monument Ensemble. The track was recorded live in 2018 at Garfield Park Conservatory and is accompanied by the video of that performance below.

The musicians featured on this song are Angel Bat Dawid (clarinets), Dana Hall (drums, percussion), Damon Locks (electronics, bells, voice), and Arif Smith (percussion).

The label and Locks felt that this song was more than fitting for the times we find ourselves in and felt it needed to be shared.

Here is what Locks had to say about this song; "An ode to Chicago: In a hospital room, doctors and nurses come in and out, evaluating, recommending, prepping, and testing. But once visiting hours are over the patient is left alone with their thoughts, ruminating on the intimidating lack of agency and loneliness of losing control of their own circumstances. Drifting towards despair, they discover flowers in the room. There is a note attached that expresses what I would say to Chicago in its most precarious condition. We see you. We love you. Stay beautiful. I am very happy to be able to share this song at this time. It is a fitting message for this moment we are living through. I hope you all stay safe."
