Cave Mode Shake release splintering indie single "This Is It"

We were celebrating America on July 4th -- drinking heavily and lamenting the injustices carried out by the nation's rich and powerful, that is -- so we slept a bit on Cave Mode Shake releasing their driving new single "This Is It". But now we share this indie jam with you; these five rockin' boys go ham on this track which sounds like an homage to LCD Soundsystem's latest work, what with the reverb on Joe Gladstone's vocals and Dennis Pickett and Ben Merlotti going absolutely bonkers with the guitars. "This Is It" is a good pump up tune for a night out this summer; maybe you're looking in the mirror getting your makeup on or driving up to the club with your friends, and you need a track that's going to speed up your heartbeat a little bit. Cave Mode Shake are happy to deliver. Take a listen to "This Is It" below. - Will Sisskind





Wyn Doran unleashes soulful new single "Spell," plays O'Brien's Pub 08.02

Yes, the rhythm is contagious, the bass real fat, the keys a bit spooky but it is the fiery vocal delivery of Nashua’s Wyn Doran that is the talisman entrancing in “Spell” her latest single. Known to a select few as Amy Wynne Doran, the singer/songwriter faces her insecurities in this single, and she incinerates them in a sonic flame of jazz, blues, and soul influences that suit her vocal prowess. “Spell” takes the listener for a ride with intervals of ambient build-ups, hard-pounding drums, brass instrumentation, and electric guitar flourishes. The New Hampshire-based artist exudes the kind of confidence necessary to drive the intricate instrumentation right through the heart. Wyn Doran will be performing at O’ Brien’s Pub in Boston on August 2nd, in the meantime we are streaming “Spell” below. - Rene Cobar 





Boo Riley Releases A New Single, "Mango Garry"

Manhattan-based artist Austin Lesch (aka Boo Riley)'s most recent single, "Mango Garry," is a clever, mid-tempo track vaguely remenescient of Steely Dan that will send you back to that sunny era in the '80s when you could hear quality pop rock on the radio. From the beginning, the song is packed with sophisticated songwriting twists and held together by Lesch's smooth, made-for-radio vocals. The song opens a three-track, impeccably produced and performed EP - you can stream it below. - Susan Moon

Sho releases soaring debut single "Planet Hurt"

Sho Ishikura makes their recorded debut with the single "Planet Hurt", an R&B ballad in the vein of artists like Prince, with Ishikura's soulful voice harmonizing over a seductive beat delivering lyrics such as "She gets me wet like a newborn." When Ishikura shared the song with fellow songwriters at an ASCAP workshop a couple of years ago, industry folks and other artists showed hesitation at the subject matter. However, a substantial amount of people were intrigued by Ishikura's tune, creating a sense of controversy that helped create some buzz for it. The uproar of "Planet Hurt" -- a track which blends pleasure with pain, light with dark --  makes it a piece of work worth your ears' attention, so that you can form your own opinion about it. Take a listen to "Planet Hurt" below. - Will Sisskind
