Buzz Alert: L'Freaq unveils video for "Moonlight," announces "Weird Awakenings" EP

We've been saying for years that female indie musicians have, on average, been producing a lot more interesting material than their dude counterparts, and L'Freaq, the project of bi-coastal electronic singer songwriter Lea Cappelli, is another piece in the truly beautiful puzzle representing NYC women's musical output in the new millennium. After releasing the delicate yet edgy electro-soul ballad "Weird Awakenings," the artists has recently unveiled a darker (and even edgier) single/video combo with  "Moonlight" - streaming below. Channeling the experimental, noir ballads of Portishead, the track features a deceivingly sparse arrangement, blending a killer plodding and syncopated rhythm section with ever-evolving, ambient electronic soundscape. Lea's vocals not only confirm her noteworthy pipes and silky tone, but also reveal her ability to convey character to a performance and "play" the song's part, a trait only few musical performer possess. Don't miss her next live performance at Rockwood on February 2nd.

Team Wild releases Volume 1 of project "The American Diary"

One of the best parts of Nashville's indie scene -- as is the case with scenes all around the country -- is that talent comes from far and wide to make their art. In doing so, they both blend into the American cultural landscape and stand out in it. Team Wild are one such example of this talent; their frontwoman, Amelie D. Noordzee, moved from Paris to Nashville in 2016, just as America was undergoing one of its biggest political shakeups in modern times. Noordzee made her anxieties known in the form of her debut album Clear Eyes / Full Hearts / Can’t Lose. Now, two years later, she returns with Team Wild to release her EP The American Diary / Vol. 1, a collection of thoughts put into song over her two years of living in the States. At times dissonant and dark, and at others bright and punchy, the three tracks on this first volume of The American Diary show a songwriter using all elements of music to spell out her emotions and observations about the current state of not just the nation, but the whole world. Take a listen for yourself below. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "Ask The Angels" - Potion 200

Potion 200, which is comprised of Bill Fries (Drone Ranger), Jeremy Colonna (Clasp), and Zack Robbins (Superheaven, DARK MTNS, Flight Habit, Sun Organ), recently shared a trio of tracks from their forthcoming LP Oblivion Parade. A smattering of percusion pops like firecrackers in the distance, hushed secretive vocals, and ascending keys build a mysterious intrigue on “Ask The Angels.” The song branches forward in a breezy pleasant jangle. Bill Fries's soft vocals lift as if floating on a daydream cloud. One steps into a fantasy world if only for a fleeting moment.
