Carli & the Dark's dream folk details night visions on "Mimi"

“Mimi,” the debut single by dream folk project Carli & the Dark, firmly establishes artist Carli Naff’s aptitude for magically realistic songwriting over the course of an atmospheric four-minute sonic novella, rendering hazy recollections of an evening in a manner that seems like an oracle’s visions. Gradually shifting from the minimalism of guitar arpeggios to a a full band, as sparse percussion and slide guitar enter the fold, Naff’s vocal performance retains its distant-yet-powerful quality before coming to an abrupt, forlorn stop, echoing into the recesses of the night as quickly as they manifested. With an equal emphasis on electric folk and dream-pop production, this track is recommended listening for fans of Andy Shauf and Songs: Ohia alike — give it a listen below.

Gam debuts butter-smooth record "Moments and Spirals"

Boston’s Gam is a silky smooth group with a short and sweet EP we recommend highly. Moments and Spirals opens up with “Every Second Levitates,” a funky track that unravels elegantly: the guitars range from crisp-clean to wah-tinged and swirl around warm vocals, and snappy beats. “Wait a Little” leans on its slow rhythm and oozes jazziness steady while “Sunkissed Lovers” has a serene ambiance and an R&B groove perfect for a sweet wind-down. The band is just taking flight, but already its path looks promising, and its musical colors splendid. Stream “Every Second Levitates” below to join the journey. - Rene Cobar

02.01: Ginger Root plays mini-series premiere party at Junior High

The funk-forward DIY crew Ginger Root are gearing up for a little tour in March, but on Saturday, February 1st, they'll perform some music as part of the premiere of Hole Man at Junior High. If you're unfamiliar with Ginger Root's sound -- which blends funk and indie elements along the lines of Toro Y Moi, Vulfpeck, and Jay Som -- you'll want to discover it at this show, as you can pay nothing to get in. This free show will also get you into the premiere of the new mini-series Hole Man, additional performances by RENDER BOY and Jesse Herb, and art and zines for sale from creators Tessa Lowe and Seannie Bryan. If anything, this event's a great chance to support Junior High, a non-profit space dedicated to highlighting marginalized voices with radical empathy and anti-oppression activism. Get yourself familiar with Ginger Root's music by watching the video for "B4", posted below. - Will Sisskind
