Distant Mountains release new album Stationed Lockstep

Distant Mountains released their latest album Stationed Lockstep on March 1the first full-length album the band self-engineered and self-produced (Light Rail Studios, San Francisco). Well they’ve done a fine job. The album as a whole is a breathing piece; songs fade and blend into each other with seamless mixing and a refreshing blend of experimental, alternative rock that might please fans of Wilco and My Morning Jacket. Track “Look Back” is an opening song with the epic quality of early Arcade Fire and has some clever-funny lyrical and vocal moments. Enjoy that deep warble for a second there. Our recommendation is to hold out for Side 2: tracks “Expensive Taste,” “Solstice,” and “Junipero” blend together with a seamless spacey quality. Distant Mountains is Paul McCorkle, Scott Lord, and Ben Manning. Stay tuned into their sites for upcoming shows. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





New Sadurn EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duo of Genevieve DeGroot and Jon Cox, a.k.a. Sadurn, recently released an EP Gleam, via Dead Definition Records. Delicate, acoustic guitar and ukulele accentuate DeGroot’s impassioned, silky vocals. Bedroom-folk songwriting addresses personal concerns, while simultaneously capturing a soothing, daydreamy quality and captivating calm. You can find the pair this evening upstairs at World Cafe Live as part of a lineup that also includes Mother Moses and Americanadian.





Dina Maccabee's new music is a balancing act, plays Owl Music Parlor 4.6

Dina Maccabee’s forthcoming record The Sharpening Machine is a balancing act; Maccabee juggles inclinations towards melodic singing and experimental vocal expression, while simultaneously modulating between instrumental textures both acoustic and electronic. While it can be initially perplexing to discern her overall vision, it is out of these contrasts that she creates a tension wherein shifts in structure and sound deliver a satisfying build and release. Recent single “Could You Be Right” serves as a testament to the record’s dynamic nature, changing from stumbling synth lines and a wandering vocal melody to an indie-pop, almost baroque-like march during the song’s chorus (and then back again). It’s a peak behind the curtain to Maccabee’s uniquely singular vision which will drop in full on April 5th - stream it below, and be sure to catch her at The Owl Music Parlor on April 6th with Kaethe Hostetter and Out of Sight of Land. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)





Cassandra Jenkins releases acoustic version of "Hotel Lullaby"

Cassandra Jenkins released her debut album Play Till You Win in 2017, but her songs from that record continue to enchant new listeners in different ways. The songwriter released an acoustic version of her cosmic track "Hotel Lullaby" on March 8th, in which she strips the song of everything but her hushed voice, her guitar, and a symphonic string quartet. The track takes on greater intimacy this way, making you feel like you're getting a listen into its inner workings. This version of "Hotel Lullaby" got some recent publicity when ABC's Musicland -- a show on their online channel ABC Localish -- premiered it in a video, showing Jenkins performing the song at the Plaza Hotel where her father used to play piano. Take a listen to the acoustic version of "Hotel Lullaby" below. - Will Sisskind
