Pensive mornings have met their match in Max Grazier's new record "Warm Enough Not To Care"

Your weekend playlist can get a boost from the music of Portsmouth’s Max Grazier. The New Hampshire singer-songwriter’s latest EP Warm Enough Not To Care is evenly spread with a sonic marmalade of dynamic acoustic and electric guitar riffs, stupendous vocal harmonies, and subtle drums to sway to, all tinged with a bedroom-production syrup so sweet. All three tracks of Grazier’s new record feel like confessions, not meant to be released, deeply personal, sung with passion, and played to the wave of pseudo-surf guitar ambiance. Pensive weekend mornings just got a lot better, in that kind of moody-basking way, thanks to the music of Max Grazier. The trombone finale in “Paper Eyes” is exquisite, let it build up below. - Rene Cobar





Cindy Latin mixes elegance and urban flair in new single "In a Year From Now"

Matching the splendor of the tasteful instrumentation that accompanies her, Boston’s Cindy Latin lets her vocals soar in her latest single “In a Year From Now.” Yes, the drums flash some nearly-acrobatic fills, the bass grooves deliciously, and the trumpets are resonant, but it is Cindy’s passionate expressions that captivate, switching with ease from flowing verses to soulful choruses, she commits to them wholly. Cindy Latin strikes that perfect balance between an elegant soul singer and hardened street lady, similarly as another gal people may know of named Alicia Keys. “In a Year From Now” drips with honest curiosity about the future, and easily creates a narrative that we can all relate to, Cindy Latin channels the message well. Without further ado “In a Year From Now” is streaming below for your listening pleasure. - Rene Cobar

Folk songstress Jeannie debuts with tender self-titled record, plays Union Tavern 06.29

The soft music of Boston’s Jeannie with its supple vocal melodies, entrancing acoustic guitar overtures, and pulsating cello foundations slowly leads the listener to a place familiar, a corner of the mind treasured. The indie-folk songstress is debuting with a self-titled EP suggestive of detachment from the hectic world, the atmospheric music lends itself to as much, the compassionate musical expressions float freely, and yet the lyrics center the themes back to people, relationships, love. Jeannie’s music is the perfect example of folk’s power of suggestion, the genre’s ability to produce beautiful sonic portraits recognizable to each listener in a unique way. Jeannie will be performing at Union Tavern in Somerville on June 29th, bringing the momentum of her premiere with her. See what you will when you listen to “in earnest” streaming below. - Rene Cobar





Dream-folk Band a.harlana Video Release for "Textile Workers" off New EP ada belle

The Brooklyn-based dreamfolk band a.harlana has released this new video for their song, "Textile Workers" from their latest EP ada belle. The trio started their career making shoegaze-type textured music with a 2018 release of sparse, simple covers, titled adventure dog covers. In 2019, their changes are coming from within: realizing a creative process that nurtured original music, the band locked themselves away for approximately a month, churning out the three songs "Textile Workers," "Faces," and "The Thunderings Are Nearly Through." 

The wistfulness, plus a penchant for fingerpicking makes for a thoughtful take on dream-pop, while the video streaming below adds a welcome element of evocative playfulness. - Susan Moon

Evangelia unveils video for "Always on Mine"

NYC's songwriter Evangelia's single "Always On Mine" is a subdued electropop ballad addressed to a past lover. Following the singer through the lonely streets of a city at night, the visuals that accompany the song grow more and more surreal, almost to the point of feeling like virtual reality. It's a fitting portrayal for a song that wonders about how things might have been, and how they could be, and whether you've imagined it all. Check out "Always On Mine" below, and stream the rest of Evangelia's music here. -Sunny Betz
