Sonya Kitchell releases single 'Funeral' about 2016 US elections

Since the appearance of Donald Trump on the US political scene, we've been receiving several submissions of protests songs, most of them filled with apocalyptic imagery and often also insults. We haven't published any of them, maybe because... we felt Michelle Obama was right when she said "when they go low, we go high." Single 'Funeral' by talented Brooklyn songwriter Sonya Kitchell certainly raises the level of the conversation, analyzing the complicated swirl of emotions brought by the 2016 elections, appropriately compared to the ultimate ritual of loss. Not new to the scene, Sonya earlier this year released her third full length album 'We Come Apart' after a long silence (her previous release is dated 2010), check out the video for single 'Mexico' below.

Sad13 Slugs It Out at Everybody Hits Dec. 12

After being advised to take a break from releases this year with her band Speedy Ortiz to avoid having fans get burned out, Sadie Dupuis found herself with an excess of songs that she had already written, inspiring her to record her debut solo effort as Sad13. Slugger (which is now available via Carpark Record) became a new lo-fi, electro-pop vehicle for Dupuis to tackle personal and societal issues. She is also currently on her first solo tour in support of the new LP, and it will be making a stop home this evening at Everybody Hits. She’ll be joined by tourmate Vagabon, the project of NYC guitarist and singer Laetitia Tamko, and dream-pop artist Emily Reo. (BTW: Unfortunately, Told Slant, who had been originally announced to perform, is no longer on the bill after getting picked up by Elvis Depressedly for their latest tour.) Everybody Hits, 529 W.

Buzz Alert: New Hampshire Singer/Songwriter Lina Tullgren Mesmerizes with EP "Wishlist"

New Hampshire songstress Lina Tullgren's Wishlist is a raw, vulnerable exploration of love, growth, and heartbreak.  Utilizing the warmth and character of analog, Tullgren invents a reflective melancholic sound that is both original and inescapably personal, sacrificing technical perfection for emotional connection.  With songs that feel more stream of consciousness than solid in form, Wishlist allows the listener a peek through the looking glass of what it is to be young and what it means to grow up.  Lina is a unique and mezmerizing voice, and we can't wait to hear what else she has to say. -Brian Varneke
