First up is the Adam Ezra solo tour, hitting living rooms across the country. 40 homes will host the “Get Folked Tour – 2017.” Couple that with a surprise live solo album, and then triple it with an impending avalanche of new demos, all tied into a crowdfunding effort that will allow the band’s fans to pick the songs, name the album, and choose the artwork…and the result will be their most ambitious album yet.
Our old friend Larry g(EE), the Dallas soul/pop/R&B singer whom we featured a few years ago on the Warped Tour OurStage stage, as well as the OurStage spotlight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,, has announced that he’s signed with up and coming independent label DEFDISCO. The label, based in both Dallas and Sheffield UK, is distributed by ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance) / Warner Music.
Larry g(EE)’s last release was the single “Don’t Talk,” released one year ago, produced by DJ A1 and featuring new labelmate Sam Lao. A new release, his debut for DEFDISCO, is expected in 2017.

It’s a very stripped down indie rock holiday special from Pullman Standard, in the form of a slightly older single, “Happy Holidays To All.” A pretty melody and harmonies over some shimmering acoustics, and of course…the sleigh bells. In these dark times, a simple message of good will might help keep things in perspective. Listen below. We’re revisiting this 2013 song on the occasion of Pullman Standard’s impending new release, Diamond Hearts. You can hear a preview at the Soundcloud link at the bottom. We will have more on that album soon.
Rapper and producer Chris Fields has released his brand new full-length, Dreams Are Forever, a 12-track tour-de-force that follows a series of singles released over the last year or so. While those singles were initially expected to be part of the final album, Fields output since he started recording near the end of 2014 has been such that Dreams Are Forever is primarily fresh material. “Crown,” which we wrote about when it dropped back in September 2015, is the familiar track, and still dominates with its confidence and snaking melodies. Fields contrasts a track like that one, which he characterizes as full of bravado, with others that allow more vulnerability, like “Visionary,” “Therapy,” and the title track. He sees this as part of the natural progression into adulthood, and as an artist, he says, “I’m just really letting people into my mind – what I think of and go through as a man.” Dreams Are Forever is a record of that progression.

We’ve been bringing you songs from Brooklyn electro-pop duo Late Cambrian‘s latest project, as they arrive. And so, please dig the brand-est new-est one, “Girl Bag Holder.” See “More like this” below for other recent tracks.
Se’von has achieved next level status over the last couple of years, and he just keeps bringing it. His latest track, “War,” created with B Sims and The Coalition, is a classic, foreboding, head-nodding beat with a killer hook. Se’von owns this one, spitting with the intensity of a man truly preparing for war. Don’t sleep on Se’von Legend. Full version available at iTunes.
