Zenizen Play Baby's All Right 8/30

Zenizen is such a perfect 2017 listen, we can't believe that they haven't blown up. Soulful vocals by lead Opal Hoyt maintain the sweet spot of R&B that manages to blend an original tone with smooth scales. Backed by charming keys and at times unpredictable beats, all these elements make this group such a timely combo. But Zenizen is not that young. They've been doing this for years now. With yearly singles "Coldwood," Fiver" and "No Contact" released since 2015, they've been working on their jazz-infused music for a while. Like most good things, they only get better with age. "Australia" their 2017 release and first EP, is their most confident work yet. Listen to the three tracks on this new EP and take the time to enjoy "Expanding," a Rihanna-esque heartbreaking pop song, especially. See Zenizen at Baby's All Right August 30th. -Allie Mille

Ritual Talk premiere video for new single, "Sense"

Among the many jaw-dropping moments from Ritual Talk's performance at Pianos a few weeks back, one that noticeably caught the eyes of the crowd was their artful 5-person vocal harmonization. With their newest single, "Sense" (brand new video below), they replicate that skill perfectly on record. The band's second track from their upcoming debut EP, Rippled Glass, is soothing and ethereal as was their debut single, "Help I've Been Dreaming"; but the vocal performance here is sublime, floating over a more psych, alt-soul vibe. The track's progression is reminiscent of Alabama Shakes' soul rock "Sound and Color," mixed with Alexander DeSimine's Dirty Projectors-esque vocals; the accompanying harmonies, and the final buildup, will send chills down your spine. And if the rest EP is anything as this single and their live performance, it will be one hell of a release. - Pearse Devlin

On the rise: Anne Dereaux crafts emotional alt-soul in debut EP

With her debut EP, Book of Lolita, released last month, Nashville born, LA based alt-soul singer Anne Dereaux delivers a soothing record filled with wisdom and vitality. Inspired by an alter ego conceived by the artist when she was a child, the EP marks an emotive and personal journey, featuring vocals that range between confidence, pain, and delicate textures, layered over atmospheric instrumentals. The artist released a video (streaming below) for the song "MO(U)RNING", which complements the emotional track through an ambitious story that transitions from a somber, darkened setting to a luminous ending, painting a journey through pain and heartbreak. She's playing NYC's hot hub Baby's All Right on August 22nd - it's a good sign. - Tafari Lemma
