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.

Join the band on their journey into "The Space Travelers Lullaby."
Eels: Today Is The Day The dark force behind EELS, Mark Oliver Everett, doesn't come off as a cheery type of guy. "Today Is The Day" sounds like him but is airy and cheerful with an optimistic perspective.
Sam Evian: Health Machine Sam Evian is the moniker of New York based musician, producer, and album cover graphic artist Sam Owens. A track we love is "Health Machine," a crunchy reverb-laden ditty about taking care of his health while on the road.
Amo Amo: When We're Gone Back in June 2017, Jim James invited a group of musical friends to get together for an impromptu jam. This particular group of seasoned musicians shared a bond that would lead to a revelation in sound and eventually, "When We're Gone."
