New Sam Bekt LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sam Becht, operating under the pseudonym Sam Bekt, offers up stylish, homespun, pop melancholia on their album Selfie. A reflection on our culture of burnout and tech malaise, the LP combines field recordings and samples into songs that play cheerful despite taking on darker topics like social media validation and post-grad listlessness. The tracks touch on many genres without landing in one particular spot, giving Becht plenty of room to flex their producer chops. Tracks like “Switzerland” and “Sign Off” display an impressive range in style when put side by side, never deviating from offering a clean and full sound. You can take Selfie for a spin below. - Josh Kelly





Rachel Mazer channels her grief on "Home," debut LP out 3/8

Writing and composing is a coping mechanism for Rachel Mazer on "Home." On her latest single, the soulful singer-songwriter documents the grief she underwent after she lost her brother. Her silken vocals add welcoming warmth to the song's breezy jazz rhythm, exhibiting a more subdued take to the vigorous delivery of her previous single "Open Heart." It's through her tempered affliction that we're able to truly empathize with her story, which as sad as it may be, ultimately soars with a hopeful message. 

"Home" is the third single off of Mazer's forthcoming debut LP, which she will self-release on March 9. Juan Rodríguez

Power pop artist Sam Hoffman plays Springwater Supper Club on 02.23

Sam Hoffman released his power pop album Fairweather last fall, introducing the world to his mix of power pop and indie rock. With a little bit of soul and a touch of fire, Hoffman has pressed two of his songs from his debut album into vinyl with the help of local lathe-cut record producers Groove Family Records. Those two songs -- the previously-released "Glencrest Lane" and new single "All the Places" -- make a good pair for a single, and they each lend a little bit of their own to charm to Hoffman's live shows, where he dazzles the audience with his lyrical wit and melodic expertise. You can catch Hoffman live at Springwater Supper Club on February 23rd. Take a listen to "All the Places" below. - Will Sisskind





Thelma releases sophomore LP "The Only Thing" 02.23 at Secret Project Robot

Is it a paradox for playfulness and gravity to exist in the same breath? It might be easy to jump to that conclusion, but if we’ve learned anything from Kate Bush, it’s that whimsy can often be a great vessel for complexity. If anyone has taken that message to heart, it would be Natasha Jacobs, the brain behind Brooklyn based musical project Thelma. Her debut self titled album, an alt-folk meditation on chronic illness and loss, brimmed with unconventionality, whether it be from a surprising electronic breakdown or a yelping vocal performance. Jacobs writes songs that practically do dances around your mind, distracting you with baroque glitter for just a moment before pulling you back to reality again with a masterful lyric. Thelma is poised to release her second album The Only Thing on February 22nd (with release party at Secret Project Robot the day after) Below you can have a listen to single “The Only Thing”, a lyrical exploration of identity that practically saunters into your ears. - Sunny Betz





New Track: "Spoon or Fork" - AllegrA

Yet, Not Enough, the forthcoming EP from AllegrA, is set to arrive on March 12 via Citrus City Records. “Spoon or Fork,” its lead single, captures the picturesque, dreamy qualities of a relationship's beginning. Getting to know each other while exploring a new, untarnished residence, there’s an inherent sun, shining through the blind's warmth, as every aspect appears to glimmer optimistically. Then, amid those shimmering qualities, heart-racing instrumentals run lead with guitar riffs, punctuated by percussion, providing a breaking-loose element. (Photo by CJ Simavi)
