TV ME Wraps Tour With EP Release

Northern England has launched yet another pristine pop act, a three-piece called TV ME. Led by Thomas McConnell, the band returned to their Liverpool home this past weekent, at the end of a regional tour, just in time to celebrate the release of their four-song EP, A Broadcast From TV ME. At turns breezy and jarring, the EP mixes synthesized and organic instruments in a Harry Nilsson-meets-Brian Wilson-meets-Jon Brion Optigan blur, infused with some extra-modern electronic grooves. Dig it.

Aloud Is “Falling Out Of Love”

Boston-to-L.A. transplants Aloud have released a fantastic new single, “Falling Out Of Love.” It’s a classic soul style ballad, propelled by a tumbling horn arrangement and of course Jen De La Osa‘s belting, plaintive lead vocal. And I would be remiss not to commend unto you the single’s B-side, “Empty House.” Singer Henry Beguiristain takes the lead on this one, and while the style diverges a bit from “Falling Out Of Love,” the vintage feel remains, with powerhouse drums plowing through guitar reverb and a coiling Farfisa organ line (shouts out to drummer Charles Murphy and producer Benny Grotto). Fall out of love this Valentine’s Day, won’t you? Vinyl 45 and digital versions available here.

Darlingside, “Futures”

Massachusetts indie/folk/other quartet Darlingside have released the new video for the first single from their upcoming LP Extralife. The video, animated by Mara Fradella and directed by Keith Boynton, finds the present meeting the past in multiple attempts to create a greater future, reflecting the song’s refrain, “It’s not ever too late.”

Extralife is out February 23rd, and Darlingside will be on tour this spring.

Neon Void, “Numb To Love”

The great singer and songwriter Jes Hudak (moonlighting as her alter-ego, Ponymane) has released a new single from the latest of her fascinating side projects, Neon Void. “Numb To Love” is a grand, dramatic track featuring the flourishes of Hudak’s arpeggiated piano under both her own vocal hook as well as the rapid fire verses of Neon Void’s other half, rapper Know One (aka Roan Smith). “Numb To Love” is available on iTunes now.

Download Late Cambrian’s New ‘Sweet Cambrian High Vol. I & II’

Available last week to their PledgeMusic campaign supporters only, the new one from Late Cambrian is finally out worldwide. Sweet Cambrian High Vol. I & II is the first new collection from the Brooklyn band since 2015, and it reflects the metamorphosis of Late Cambrian into purveyors of tight, sophisticated electro/alternative pop. Sweet Cambrian High fulfills the promise of the handful of irresistible singles and intriguing videos released during the extended production of the album (and while Late Cambrian songwriter and singer John Wlaysewski produced Tracy Bonham‘s Modern Burdens, recently named one of the 50 best albums of 2017 by Rolling Stone). It’s their strongest set yet, reflecting a confident and original new direction, and you can get it here.
