Polished and powerful as its engines roar, “Jaan Pehechaan Ho” is the molten new single from Detroit’s Olivia Jean.

Crisply-imagined noir, the narcotic, cinematic and brand-new video was directed by Marc McAndrews in a heavenly reverie. “Wool” is the absinthe-rinsed and gloriously-styled new single from New York City’s Julia Haltigan.

Smart, serrated and aglow with attitude, “Ballad of a Southern Midwife” is the raw and rousing brand-new single from Bowen Island, British Columbia’s Sarah Jane Scouten.

Inhabited by the kind, wise and tuxedoed ghost of Henry Mancini, it burns cherry red as wisps of smoke rise, curling in ivory ribbons. “Back In Time” is the heaven-sent new single from Brooklyn-based autrice Deidre Muro, whose Deirde & the Dark project is set to release its debut LP. Entitled Variety Hour, you can pre-save it on Spotify and Apple Music now, and you can pre-order the digital version of it from her Bandcamp page, too.
