Kansas Bible Company preps new album release with "She's in the Garden," live this Friday (06.03)

It's just a taste, just a tease, but the dreamy "She's in the Garden" from Kansas Bible Company's upcoming Paper Moon shows that the band is drinking deep from a pool of laudable influences. Centered around the reliable tenderness of a Rhodes and leading into a horn breakout bound for who-knows-where, "She's in the Garden" sounds something like Jason Molina with a smile on his face.

The Bible Co. has a hometown show at the Beast coinciding with the release of the album on June 3, this Friday, so check out the track and then be sure to show these talented locals some love in-person style. -Austin Phy

Henry Hall is bringing his shape-shifting voice to Mercury Lounge on 6/1

Henry Hall is one of those singer-songwriters that successfully dodges any attempt to pin a genre on him. His discography to date, notably album-less, is filled with tracks that range from light indie pop-rock to harder stuff reminiscent of grunge, but some of his tracks eschew that spectrum (and instrumention) altogether and enlist producers to allow Hall to enter the world of James Blake-esque electronic R&B. Hall's vocals, though, are always at the forefront of each track, and he demonstrates impressive range that serves as the lynchpin of the diverse melodies present in his music. Hall and his endlessly malleable voice will grace the Mercury Lounge's stage on June 1st. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Tuxis Giant releases split EP with Traded

To listen to Boston based trio Tuxis Giant is to delve into the deep recesses of your mind. The rollicking guitar riffs and the gentle plucking of the chords play out like quiet, contemplative ruminations that creep up to you in the dark hours of the night. O'Conner’s voice glides over the melancholy melodies like pleading whispers before the electric guitar swells and his voice bellows over them. Tuxis Giant is the type of band you can listen to during long, midnight drives by yourself–the windows down with the wind racing past you. The band released a full length album in 2015 but just released a 4 song EP split with Traded (streaming below). Expect a full band show in a month so keep an eye on their Facebook page for details and listen to their album below!

Jonas Litton shows off jazz chops on "Backyard Beach"

Backyard Beach is far from the first release by Jonas Litton, but it's one of the most interesting in the departure that it makes from his previous material. A longtime singer-songwriter, Litton has taken a hard turn into butter-smooth tropical jazz instrumentals for his latest. There's plenty of noodling to be found, but the album avoids the cheesy wankery-for-the-sake-of-wankery tropes of Weather Channel bumper tunes by being genuinely interesting in its composition while still remaining completely accessible.

It's the most relaxing collection of songs I've heard in a while, so you might want to see what's up in the stream below. -Austin Phy
