Cut Worms: Cash For Gold Recalling the early work of The Beatles amongst other British Invasion alums, mid-western born and New York-based Max Clarke aka Cut Worms sounds like a lost treasure from the 60's. Clarke handled most of the instrumentation on his debut LP. This is well exemplified on "Cash For Gold," where he plays guitar, keyboards, bass, and lap steel alongside producer Jonathan Rado of Foxygen.
Coby Brown: Cannonball LA-based Coby Brown talks about his new song "Cannonball" by saying: “The idea for the music came out of a different project I was working on. There was a scrap of a marimba line that I couldn't get out of my head, so I kept it and developed it into the structure for the song. I had an image of cannonball that had its inertia overcome by gravity and was starting to free-fall from way up high.” Check it out.
Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread: Less Than Positive Loose and freewheeling artist Michael Nau (and his band The Mighty Thread) has finally taped a live show favorite "Less Than Positive." Recorded on the final day of sessions, this existential love song came together without overdubs, much like the way they play it live. Enjoy!
Hatchie: Sleep Austrialian singer and bassist Harriette Pilbeam aka Hatchie gravitates towards celestial dream pop. How does she conjure her brand of pop? Pilbeam says “All of my songs usually start with a couple of lines that are very true, things that I think and write in my diary, and then the rest of the song isn’t really necessarily about me.” You'll find "Sleep" on Hatchie's debut EP out at the end of the week.
