Pop duo MISTY MTN debuts with single "Greener"

Earlier this week, new pop duo MISTY MTN released their first single "Greener" after weeks of teasing the release on Facebook. MISTY MTN consists of Montana-based actress and vocalist Morissa Trunzo and Brooklyn-based composer Lucas Segall. They blend the soft folk music of Big Sky Country with the dark synthetic electricity of big city synths and samplers. "Greener" showcases this sound through Trunzo's and Segall's entrancing harmonies and sparkling guitars tucked into pillows of bubbling synth sounds. The duo doesn't have any shows lined up yet, but for now, you can stream "Greener" below. - Will Sisskind

Project Diem brings dreamy synth-pop to Alphaville, 12.13

Project Diem offers a different vision of the synth-pop aesthetic, one of lush melodies countered by delicate synths and soulful vocals. Refreshingly, the vocals are left relatively untouched by reverb and are left to deliver themselves earnestly. The duo works to combine a synth-driven sensibility with an emotional quality that is both raw yet approachable. The "mid-fi" production gives voice to a youthful and surprisingly catchy angst, one that blends in with the changing seasons and failed relationships. Make sure to check out Project Diem at Alphaville, 12.13. - Amanda Ogea





Soft Glas tours with Sports, brings electric soul to Mercury on 12.13 and Baby's on 12.14

The music of Soft Glas -- a.k.a. producer and songwriter Joao Gonzalez -- evokes dreamy and funky vibes that both excite and chill the nerves. It's music that works well in a full length format, and Joao seems aware of it, since Orange Earth, released in September, is the project's third LP. Live, the musician plays/samples/loops a series of instruments on top of electronic tracks, and does it in an entertaining fashion - so much so that Soft Glas has was recently asked to tour in support of Oklahoma-based group Sports, playing shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore. He'll return to NYC on December 13th at Mercury Lounge, and then on the 14th, in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right. Catch either show if you can; otherwise, stream Soft Glas's latest single "Perks of Being a Sunflower" below. Close your eyes, and daydream. - Will Sisskind





From OhMyRockness: New Jersey's Fire is Motion

Our friends at OhMyRockness introduced us to the lovely music of New Jersey's Fire is Motion, the brainchild of Adrian Amedor - we'll let them do the intros:

"I have not researched this (because I'm a music blobber) but Fire is Motion has to be named after that Cap'n Jazz song that goes like this.

Fire is motion! Work is repetition! This is my document. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all we've done. We are all, all defenses. Fire is motion is motion growth?

God, I love that song.

Anyway, Fire is Motion doesn't sound like Cap'n Jazz at all (except for a few nice math rock noodles here and there). Sorry for the red herring there. My bad. My blob.

So what does this New Jersey band (the work of one man, Adrian Amador, and his pals) sound like then?

That's a great question! Blast this lovely EP below and find out!

Please note: there will be glockenspiels / horns / harmonies / builds / plenty of pretty parts"





Renata Zeiguer drops new single in anticipation of new LP "Old Ghost"

In anticipation for her new LP, Old Ghost, debuting in February, Brooklyn-based songwriter Renata Zeiguer (ex Cantina)has decided to pull back the curtain on the forthcoming album and release the first single. Old Ghost's second track, now made playable on her Bandcamp page is "Bug" is a suprisingly haunting song inspired by Kafka's six-legged monster. The single hints at the themes we might expect from the upcoming album, like nostalgia spurned by external places, and contending with the internal ghosts we may struggle with on a day-to-day basis. Listen to "Bug" streaming below, and catch Renata Zeiguer at Union Pool on 2/23.-Olivia Sisinni
