New Track: "I Want You to Stay" - Michael Do

Floating in a feathery daydream, “I Want to Stay”, the debut single from Michael Do, gently coasts into the New Year. However, those cozy instrumental cushions are somewhat spoiled as a lyrically illustrated departure creates a crushing vacancy. Maybe it's best to close your eyes, and hope for just a little bit longer.





Goodie is the one-woman electric folk act to soothe your soul

Goodie (aka Phyllis Lee) is a breath of fresh air in the folk/songwriter scene. For one, the traditional acoustic guitar parts are all replaced with electric, and she's not afraid to try out slightly avant chord progressions and go all out with supporting drums and bass. There's a lightness to the songs, partly because the sparsity of the DIY arrangement, but there is genuine power and confidence in Lee's vocals. "Shopping Cart" is particularly ethereal and lyrically wise, with ghostly background vocals perched atop bass and drums, proving that Goodie is one to watch. -Geena Kloeppel





“No Dogs Allowed” is the delightful new album from Boston’s Sidney Gish

Since her first release in 2015, Sidney Gish has put out four full length albums, an undeniably impressive feat for a 20 year old undergrad student at Northeastern University. Her latest album, the delightful No Dogs Allowed, is every bit as charming as her previous releases, but with a noticeable edge up on production, a task that Gish undertook single handedly. At its core, No Dogs Allowed rivals the songwriting prowess of any (Sandy) Alex G record, and shines with its endearing, twee characteristics, reminiscent of a signature K Records release. Gish could surely make Calvin Johnson crack a smile. -Charley Ruddell





New Track: "California Dreamin" (The Mamas & The Papas Cover) - Japanese Breakfast

In the midst of this deep freeze, one may be eyeing warmer climates. In that vein, Japanese Breakfast recently re-imagined The Mamas & The Papas' classic “California Dreamin” as part of a SiriusXMU session. This take hauntingly awakens, accompanied by synth, before the beat hits. Then, a sleek groove takes over, and vibrant guitar sets it off as the warmth and reassurance of vocal harmony warms the soul. Japanese Breakfast is scheduled to return to Philly on Sunday, June 3 at Union Transfer.





New Earth to Violet EP Available for Streaming & Download

Kelly Green, a.k.a. Earth to Violet, recently issued a fresh batch of bedroom-folk. Stranger incisively evaluates in a self-deprecating sincerity. A looming desire to change hovers overhead, as the hearth-crackling keys and percussion makes one feel at home. It’s difficult to move forward when the familiarity of routine and the past serve as a blanket to the cold world outside.
