Dan Abraham brings melancholy indie-folk to Mercury Lounge 04.11

New York-based songwriter Dan Abraham puts a new spin on indie-folk. It's evident that he's first and foremost a pop songwriter: on "Golden," with vocal inflections reminiscent of The Black Keys, Abraham reminisces on lost love with bitter clarity and 20/20 hindsight, over warbling, chorus-drenched guitars and a punchy rhythm section. However, on "As Things Move" and "Alive," Abraham's approach is much more steeped in the folk tradition, with delicate, fingerpicked acoustic guitar and lyrics rife with desperation and longing. "Another day in the life/Without taking a pill to survive/God knows if we'll make it alive." Don't miss Dan Abraham at Mercury Lounge on April 11th, with LUECK. Listen to "Alive" below!" - Ethan Ames

Somme portrays the feeling of loss on video for "Ordinary Fools"

Indie-pop artist Somme has recently released a video to her newest single, “Ordinary Fools,” an ode to a past relationship that left her with a heavy heart. Jordan Cantor, the woman behind Somme, enchants her listeners as she passionately portrays the feeling of loss. “Ordinary Fools” is a work of fiction that every single one of us has been through - love, loss and everything in between. Somme captures her audience in a lyrical spider-web, stripping away the metaphors and telling her story raw: “You got me where you want and I’m trying not to show it.” Do yourself, your heart and your mind a favor and follow Somme on Spotify as her much-anticipated EP will be released on May 4th.

New Matt Oleksa LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

An air of murky mystery looms throughout Gotcha, the new album from Matt Oleksa (of St. Peter’s Dog). That haunting, suspenseful level of intrigue sends chills as dim, danceable synth illuminates the corridors and those ghostly, gravelly vocals lurk over your shoulder. Something seems just a bit off as one slips into the album's sneaky sonic trance. However, that could have been the plan all along, because just like that it's gotcha.

New Track: "Four Notes" - Adam Ackerman

Flower Girl Records will be releasing Autobiologist, the forthcoming solo debut from Adam Ackerman (Small Circle, Sorority Noise, Old Gray), on April 6. Gently opening up, acoustic guitar and piano mesh and meander. The narrator envisions sitting down and hypothetically writing an emotive, expository letter. "Four Notes" chronicles a blueprint to finding better personal footing. It may be a delayed explanation that also serves as a thank you to its intended subject.
