red steppes releases "Trouble" at Pete's Candy Store on 04.12

Brooklyn welcomes a singer-songwriter with a lilting but powerful soprano voice, Kaki King styled finger-picking on their guitar, and a light touch of electronica in her tracks. St. Vincent held up the mantle when she called the borough home, and local artists such as Belle-Skinner have come to the forefront of the borough's scene in recent years. Nika Aila States comes to Brooklyn from Oakland. As red steppes, she'll release her sophomore album Arcs on May 31st. We are premiering here "Trouble", a track from the album which displays what States has to offer: Graceful guitars dancing over a simple electro-tom beat have moments of disruption when they break into jazzy chords accompanied by a piano and her voice rising into her upper register. Take a listen to "Trouble" below; States will release it officially at a show at Pete's Candy Store on April 12th. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "Class Killer" - Josh Levinsky & The Schmoos

A new single, “Class Killer,” recently arrived via Josh Levinsky & The Shmoos. The song occupies a conversational tone as lines are punctuated by backend exclamations. A confident & somewhat cocky narrator walks through the halls in an agitated manner as an acoustic, garage-punk tone is achieved. Opposing viewpoints are traded back & forth as a thoughtful aggression is released.





Fire is Motion bring their acoustic folk-pop to Elsewhere on 04.27

Union Jersey group Fire is Motion’s 2017 EP Still, I Try, put their dream pop and folk combination on full display and gives you plenty of reasons to check them out. The group recently toured the Midwest and is now back in the Tri-State Area prepping for shows in Brooklyn, the first of which will be at Elsewhere on April 27. The group appears to be growing both in recognition and band members as they have added a fifth guitarist in Shannon Moore (for a few shows for now it seems.) The music is seamless in its delivery of rich acoustic arrangements, and emotive vocal crescendos which, coupled with several minor chords help create a style that's at once moody and light. Fire is Motion is keeping their story going, one performance and band member at a time. - Rene Cobar

Molly Tuttle releases new LP "When You're Ready" on heels of international tour

Singer-songwriter Molly Tuttle cleaned up the awards last year, winning the Guitar Player of the Year prize from the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Music Association. Now, Tuttle has released her debut album, When You're Ready, a showcase of her flatpicking style and personal lyricism which presents in packaged form the music that has helped to sell out shows in both the US and the UK. Tuttle released When You're Ready just before a grand hometown show at The Basement East; days after the release, she played shows at the Savannah Music Festival and here in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry. Tuttle takes to the sky to perform shows in the UK throughout April; she'll return to the States to play shows and festivals throughout the spring. Take a listen to When You're Ready below. - Will Sisskind
