Welles plays the Basement 6/28

 Welles is from a very small town in Arkansas called Ozark, which gives context for the nostalgia at the forefront of his song "Seventeen." It starts small, with Welles' voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar, but builds into a gritty, anything-goes rock chorus that feels like it represents the emotional conundrum of being a teenager. "I can see past your short hair / tellin' me that you don't care / he ain't here but he's somewhere / I'm all fucked up so I don't care" are some of my favorite lines in song to date. A little honesty goes a long way. Catch Welles live at the Basement 6/28. -Geena Kloeppel

Video Premiere: "A Cold Wind" - Dominy

Featured on the Wet Leather LP, we’re happy to premiere the new video for “A Cold Wind” from Dominy. Cruising in the twilight hours, director Lauren Tepfer captures the single's gradual, pensive, road-weary vibe. It wears into you with a steady, semi-spoken, tell-it-like-it-is wisdom, reinforced by the hearth-glowing harmony, the twinkle of the keys, and resonating, home-welcoming, peddle steel/slide. This feels like one of those songs that one basks in, after a long night and maybe a few beverages.  You can catch an intimate, acoustic set with Dominy next Friday, June 29 at The Music Ward, joined by Rentboy, Rylan, and All Boy/All Girl.

New Track: "The Red Door" - Restorations

"The Red Door" serves as the first single from Restorations long-awaited, forthcoming album, LP5000, which is scheduled for release on September 28 via Tiny Engines. After the initial wobble of keys, an anxious swell of guitar and percussion builds in anticipation. Addressing the anxiety and concern over the changes brought on by gentrification, the song is fueled by earnest, emotive energy. What are the remnants of past that last when the faces of longstanding neighborhoods are wiped away, and where do the people go? (Photo by Emily Dubin)





Wilder Maker shares video in reverse for new single (fronted by Katie Von Schleicher

In 2017, Wilder Maker released a two-track 7” with Saddle Creek Records featuring “New Streets” and “Only Child.” Those two tracks saw the group tightening up it’s ‘70s and roots rock inspired sound with the crisp vocals of keyboardist Katie Von Schleicher (who performs under her own name as well) coming more to the forefront. On Wilder Maker’s newest single “Drunk Driver”—which comes ahead of the band’s upcoming full-length Zion, out July 13 via Northern Spy Records—Von Schleicher’s voice leads the way again with excellent results. Over a hypnotic build Von Schleicher delivers lyrics with an emotional weight that sounds effortless: “I loved her with no thought for me, reckless as a drunk driver exhales and turns the key.” The motion of the arrangement toward an ending swirl of keys and guitar pairs well with the single’s video which plays an intimate party in reverse from the sleepy subway ride home through the pizza and shared drinks to the first greetings before sunset.
