New Track: "Grand Canyon" (The Magnetic Fields Cover) - Worriers

On December 14, Living Statue Records will release You Can Sing Me Anything: A Tribute to 69 Love Song, with a plethora of artists covering The Magnetic Fields' classic album. Proceeds from the benefit compilation will be directed towards No More Dysphoria, a non-profit organization created with the goal of helping transgender individuals pay for major aspects of their transition. For their part, Worriers take on “Grand Canyon”. In lieu of the airy bounce of the original, there’s a reeled-in bareness to this version, which brings the emotive resonance to the forefront. Its forthright vulnerability is self-accepting, yet yearning for change.





Singer/songwriter Car Astor releases new single and plays Mercury Lounge 12.23

NYC-based artist Car Astor has given synth-pop a number of makeovers since beginning her solo career in 2016. Over the course of her two EP and two single releases, this singer/songwriter has displayed her talent as an emerging artist by mixing clean blends of synth-heavy electro pop. Her wide vocal range steers her sound, allowing her to deliver in formats ranging from poignant ballads to danceable hits. But it is Car Astor’s experimentation that pushes her music beyond the lines of her genre. Her most recent single, “Girlfriend,” (featured below) coolly executes a catchy pop melody, but is given depth with an electro-rock backbone and a defiant lyrical attitude. Though she may abide by archetypical pop song structures, this frontwoman’s darker style and killer vocal control is enough to give her sound a more sultry, polished edge. Her more touching songs, however, like “She Cries” and “Closed Eyes Open” off her first EP Ties, expose the softness around this artist’s edges with their rich arrangements and thoughtful substance.  Check Car Astor out for yourself on Soundcloud or Spotify and catch her playing live at Mercury Lounge on December 23. - Rebecca Carroll





Fawns of Love release kaleidoscopic video for new single "Mournful Eyes"

Fawns of Love celebrate the beautiful ties that keep us connected on "Mournful Eyes." The married duo of Jenny and Joseph Andreotti's latest single expresses an almost subconscious antipathy in our lack of human connection, and how the possibility to change that mindset is always within our grasp. The darkly poppy track sounds like a long lost coldwave hit, where Jenny's beatific vocals echo over a soft blanket of transfixing synth lines. On the accompanying video, a series of visually inventive animated images create a dark lit mood fit for a dance floor projection. 

"Mournful Eyes" is the second single off of Fawns of Love's forthcoming sophomore release, Permanent, which comes out on January 18 via Test Pattern Records. Juan Rodríguez

Rose Droll sings it like it is, plays it at The Independent

This lady is a force! We feel empowered just listening to Rose Droll. A genre-less wonder, Miss Rose gives us a little bit of a lot of things and we want more more more. Samples are interwoven in tasteful snippets, from Lou Reed baselines to “This Little Light of Mine” lyrics. There are parts we can only describe as coy-strong lady rap, interjected at the perfect moments (a poetic “...so baby, when you gonna give a fuck?” in the same breath as a line from “Ring Around the Rosie”...what the hell? Yes!). There are colorful bursts of instrumental delight--all her own doings--and to accompany it all, is that voice: fluid, lovely and nailing every pitch it tries to reach. Like we said, she’s a class all her own, but in an attempt to compare: if you enjoy Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Tune Yards and badass versions of your favorite nursery rhymes, you’ll probably dig this as much as we do. Come see her at The Independent this Thursday the 13th where she’s playing alongside Pllush, Pardoner and SOAR. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
