Shanshala debuts in style with "Closed"

We talked a bit about Shanshala when the behemoth collaborative effort Creepier Than Family dropped early this year and we've been low-key creeping on those social media channels to see what would come next. Next has come, and it's taken the form of the full-length Closed. It's an eclectic album taking fruits from the disparate branches of the musical tree and coating them with a thick, hallucinatory goop that binds it all together. Highly recommended if you're the kind of person who people have learned not to ask what kind of music they enjoy. -Austin Phy

Sam Lewis brings his Americana on tour + plays The Basement East on 09.23

A sun-dappled song that soulfully tackles inner ennui, “The Cross I Wear” (streaming below) by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Sam Lewis is quietly pretty. Emanating a lilting alt-country feeling that warmly recalls My Morning Jacket or Hiss Golden Messenger, the keys-fleeted track (off Lewis’s eponymous debut album) is the yearning of a man with aching worries but, in its very existence, its sheer sounding out, is the coddling of those concerns, too. Sam Lewis is currently touring the country, and has a home town gig scheduled at The Basement East on September 23rd. – Zach Weg


New Track: "Closer" (Feat. Daru Jones) - Modern Inventors

Modern Inventors has released a new track, called “Closer”. Enlisting the percussive services of Jack White’s Daru Jones, the song takes drums-meets-keys-and-bass groove, and spins it out in a free-floating psych manner. As the hypnotically smooth vocals coast on a pillow, a lingering exterior buzz hangs in the periphery. This electro-soul/R&B offers a loose, gripping, exploratory side that you’ll want to ride for a while.
