The excellent fourth album from Seattle’s Chastity Belt was released today, and the band have shared a narcotic, Claire Buss- and Nick Shively-directed video for its chromatically-hazed “It Takes Time” to coincide with the event. The self-titled LP is out care of their hometown’s Hardly Art. You can order grass-green-vinyl, cassette, CD and digital versions of it now from their webstore.
Starkly framed and menaced by ravens, the spooky brand-new video was directed with a stunning, black-and-white clarity by the artist herself. “Ride” is the live-wired, cinematic and vintage-hued new single from North London’s Honey Montazemi. It’s out right now, and you can hear it and her previous releases on Apple Music.
Relentlessly tuneful, Blondie- and ABBA-esque and sympathetic, “Cry” is the pulsating, swoonsome brand-new single from Louise Burns. The track is taken from her forthcoming Portraits LP. That will be released on November 8th by Vancouver’s Light Organ Records, and you can download the album’s first two singles from them now.
Simmering with a dusky glamour, it’s an invitation to explore nighttime’s elusive textures and possibilities. “Soy Lo Que Soy” is the smooth, hip-shaking brand-new single from MONOGEM, the solo-musical project of L.A.’s Jen Hirsh. You can find streaming and download information for this and more of her music now by visiting this link.
A skeleton’s dance through rolling deserts past skittering tumbleweeds, it’s sparse and sensual, mystic and mesmerizing. “Open The Gates” is the rhythmic, bluesy and seductive brand-new single from Bad Flamingo. You can stream the track along with each of their previous singles now by visiting their Soundcloud page.
Escapism pressed like a wildflower in a dream, its intimacies whisper, shimmer and sing in universal tones. “Disappear” is a romance that promises future hope and the sweet, sonorous new single from L.A.-area musician, actress and model Charlie Taylor. It’s available now on all major streaming services, and the release of her Sad Barbie EP is forthcoming.
Suitably sweeping and bursting with romance and elegance, “The Winner Takes It All” is the heart-swelling new single from Halifax, Nova Scotia’s Christina Martin. The cover of the transcendent ABBA classic is taken from her just-released Wonderful Lie LP. Out through her own Come Undone Records, you can buy CD and digital versions of it right now from her Bandcamp page.
A gently-pulsing triumph, its bold, slate-grey shades are sharply patterned, making all of its contrasting bright lights beam. “Dark Horse” is the dynamic, uplifting and brand-new single from Nashville’s Lera Lynn, one she wrote, produced and recorded herself. You can find various streaming and download links for this track right here.
Guts Club is the solo-musical project of New Orleans’ Lindsey Baker, and she’s just shared a haunted-D.I.Y-dust-devil of a take on Iron Maiden’s “The Number of the Beast”. The track is taken from the just-released compilation Hidden Tape Unlocked: Volume 1, which you can download from Living Statue Records now. Additionally you can find digital and cassette editions of her recent Trench Foot LP on her Bandcamp page.
Roiling with rhythm and surging with creative energies, “My House” is an incendiary epic and the compelling new single from Andrya Ambro’s Gold Dime. On October 11th they release the My House LP through Fire Talk. You can pre-order vinyl, cassette and bundled versions of it either from the label or from the band’s Bandcamp page now.
