New folksy release ‘spring and summer demos’ by Sault is DIY at its finest

One consequence of music streaming is the over-saturation of the DIY scene with sloppy EPs recorded in bedrooms and basements that all end up sounding very much the same. But Sault’s spring and summer demos is not one of those records. Recorded by Nashville three-piece Sault, the EP travels between emo, folk, and indie rock in just four songs. Tracks like “socks” start off slowly, but eventually explode in an outpouring of emotion too raw for a conventional scene (a vocal tactic not too far off from Conor Oberst.) As a first release, this project is extremely promising and marks Sault as a force to be reckoned with on the local scene. - Lilly Milman

 





Pool Cosby plays Bowery Electric 07.20

Electronic trio Pool Cosby recently released their LP, Blind Gold, a record that's at once soulful and... brainful. With its dynamic layer of samples and live instruments accompanying the electronic experimentation, the album showcases a symbiotic relation between ambient, chillwave leanings, and a hip-hop based style. The LP also includes an intriguing selection of featured artists: single “Thrive” (streaming) features the delicate vocals of Tiger Darrow alongside subtle instrumentals that shift between a calm droney atmosphere and a dancey chorus with deep electronic kick drum beats animated by a minimal, but funky, bass line. Don't miss these guys at Bowery Electric on 07.20. - Tafari Lemma





bellwire’s new single “Dreamin’” is a modern take on the Everly Brothers

If the chorus of Boston-based bellwire’s new single sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The classic repetition of the word “dream” comes from the Everly Brothers song “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” but that is where the similarities between these two tracks end. bellwire’s take on this song is dark, stripped down, and is more comparable to the likes of Patti Smith than the pop duo (maybe not sonically, but definitely lyrically.) Tyler Burdwood, the lead vocalist of bellwire, is currently on a solo tour with Massachusetts-based Jake McKelvie, of The Countertops. - Lilly Milman





KYYN's soulful indie-pop fusion in self-titled EP

Local indie-pop artist KYYN released her debut, self-titled EP last month. In stand out single "This is the Way Things Go" (streaming below), KYYN's soulful vocals are immersed in a dreamy and edgy R'n'B production that delivers a perfect sonic carpet for her smooth soprano. The track features a collaboration with fellow New York artist Miss, and illustrates KYYN’s talent for delicate and sharp lyrics and dusky, detailed electronic arrangements. - Tafari Lemma

Bent Denim release ‘Diamond Jubilee’ EP + play The End 8.27

With the release of their EP Diamond Jubilee, Bent Denim has carved out a dreamy space for themselves in the world of indie pop. The new release has the same narrative drive as their 2015 LP, Romances You, but with more detached vocals and a hazier soundscape. There is a sobering honesty that comes across in these five tracks, which mostly focus on mortality and the human experience. However, ultimately, this is a record about space: considering that this band is equally based in Nashville, New York, and New Orleans, Bent Denim’s music fills in the space between these cities (quite literally, as the band members send each other tracks through the internet.) The group will be reconvening in Nashville to play a show at The End on August 27th. - Lilly Milman
