Beecher’s Fault, “Never Mine”

Beecher’s Fault, pride of Astoria NY, have followed up their excellent extended player The Easiest Drug To Sell with a new single, “Never Mine.” The song sticks with the meshing of propulsive programmed grooves and warm pads with inviting melodies and vocals, a dynamic established to great effect on the last EP. “Never Mine” builds methodically, eventually exploding with guitars and real drums.

Kyle Bent, “Position”

Boston-based artist Kyle Bent has a new single and video for “Position,” a self-reflexive ode to how far he’s come, creatively and commercially. He investigates what that signifies for the person he was and hopes to become, looking at the idea of success as defined by his community and peers, as he stands ready for the mainstream, having mastered his craft, or at least come very damn near it. Bent is clearly a gifted lyricist, but he takes pains to express the extent of the work he had to do to see that gift fully realized: “Thinking it was easy for me – instant like Alakazam / Initially people were never listening / Women would always snicker and critics were steady dissing me / But somewhere ‘long the lines between writing rhymes and discipline / I realized Bent could be bending-ish with his penmanship.”

“Ready To Go” By Bronze Radio Return

Even before the departure of banjo and harp player Craig Struble, Bronze Radio Return had been shifting from barn-stomping roots music to a more modern pop aesthetic. Their new single, “Ready To Go” finds them comfortable and confident in that arena, their songwriting chops at peak form, with a radio-ready sheen that remains relatively organic, recalling some of the best of The Shins. Analog synths and tight, dry drums carry clean guitars and the band’s trademark harmonies over a great melody. Not a surprise, then, that banjo and harp might be superfluous to the production.

Larry g(EE): “Losing You”

Dallas TX-based singer Larry g(EE), who earned the opportunity on OurStage to appear as the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2012, is back with a brand new single, “Losing You.” After a few tumultuous years, during which he signed to a boutique label with a major distribution deal (ADA/Warner), only to see the label collapse amidst accusations of mismanagement and bad faith, Larry g(EE) did the only thing he could − get back to making music. In this case, however, he took the unforeseen misfortune and turned into an opportunity to shift directions, reevaluating his sound and ultimately trading the high-energy, anthemic soul/rock that had been his trademark for a pop/R&B vibe. That sound is apparent on the new single, which also marks a lyrical shift, finding the singer getting introspective and touching on a wounded past that informs the dissolution of a love affair.
