New Releases On OurStage

Every once in a while, we like to share some of our favorites among recent uploads to OurStage. This month, we’ve got music from should-be country star John Thibodeaux, who had to put his career on hold in 2015 to serve in Afghanistan, but is back with a album produced by Grammy winner Robb TrippMoments Like This (get it here). There’s also a new track from our old friends Xolie Morra & the Strange Kind, from a forthcoming album. Xolie’s voice is golden. Finally, another familiar voice: Jimmy Lyback, aka July Fighter, who have been at or near the top of our charts for the last year or so. Listen below:

David Gorman Releases ‘Another Midnight’ EP

Last month, David Gorman topped the OurStage Roots Finals competition with his 2016 track “A Thousand Miles A Day.”


This week saw the release of the UK singer-songwriter’s new EP, his second, Another Midnight, which you can get now on iTunes. It’s a five-song set of sparsely orchestrated and arranged songs, which spotlights the young artist’s rich tenor voice and lyrical prowess. Included is one live track, “Tomorrow,” and the ambient style of that recording captures Gorman as a commanding performer, his voice and finger-picked acoustic guitar reverberating and filling the room. Get the new EP here, and see a live performance of the track “Ache No More” below.

Spiderman And Trump In “After Party”

Spiderman seems to get younger with every reboot.

That’s right, the new video for Air Traffic Controller‘s “After Party” features Spiderman battling the villainous Donald Trump (who is also portrayed as a villain in the video), along with several other former presidents.

A la Point Break, a group of ne’er do wells stage several heists, donning presidential masks to break up and loot children’s birthday parties. They are continually thwarted by a very young web slinger.

Enjoy:

Silent Party Readies New EP, Drops Second Single

London indie rock quartet Silent Party has been, well, if not silent, then relatively quiet over the past two years. The band has been working during that time, writing and gigging, but there have been no proper new releases. That’s changed now with the release of a new EP, including two singles so far. First was “Playing Small,” a pulsing, moody track with rapid-fire lyrics that somewhat evokes “The Boys Of Summer” with a bit of U2 guitar. Now comes “Offline,” a recording no less atmospheric, particularly in its restrained verse, but with a chorus that turns it into more of a dancefloor banger than “Playing Small.” Listen to both below, and follow @silentpartyldn.

My Radio’s “Tada IV”

Here is a humongous-sounding dose of powerful pop music by Virginia’s My Radio, a band formed by former Bostonian JP Powell, who we remember from his time performing with Bleu as well as the excellent vehicle for his own songwriting, Chauncey. The new release is called Tada IV, a seven-song set that repurposes some of the aesthetic of familiar ’80s radio giants to propel the band’s otherwise wholly modern, anthemic rock out of your speakers with urgency. The whole thing is streaming now.
