Raina Bee & The Hive release music video for "Queen of the South"

Songwriter Raina Bee returns with her band The Hive in the music video for "Queen of the South", the second track off of her 2016 album Stung. The rough-and-tumble country-inspired romp takes cues from Nancy Sinatra and Fiona Apple as it chronicles the urge for revenge. Bee says of the song: "It’s about someone who wronged me and imagining what I wish I could do to them in response. The whole Queen of the South thing is somewhat alluding to the Civil War and that the relationship was kind of a war."

The video showcases that war in action, as a gun-toting Raina fires rounds at a bound-and-gagged man who tries to make his escape. To see it for yourself, click the Play button on the video below. - Will Sisskind

New Music Video: "Chazy" (Feat. Doug Hirlinger) - Jon Coyle

Later this month, Jon Coyle (of Son Step) will be releasing a new solo EP Happy Place, with the aim of raising proceeds for National Organization for Women. “Chazy” (featuring Doug Hirlinger) coerces a natural flow, establishing sonic swimming conditions. A loose, percussive foundation sends off an exploration, which is reeled in by the melody of cascading vocals.

New Track: "I Want You to Stay" - Michael Do

Floating in a feathery daydream, “I Want to Stay”, the debut single from Michael Do, gently coasts into the New Year. However, those cozy instrumental cushions are somewhat spoiled as a lyrically illustrated departure creates a crushing vacancy. Maybe it's best to close your eyes, and hope for just a little bit longer.

Goodie is the one-woman electric folk act to soothe your soul

Goodie (aka Phyllis Lee) is a breath of fresh air in the folk/songwriter scene. For one, the traditional acoustic guitar parts are all replaced with electric, and she's not afraid to try out slightly avant chord progressions and go all out with supporting drums and bass. There's a lightness to the songs, partly because the sparsity of the DIY arrangement, but there is genuine power and confidence in Lee's vocals. "Shopping Cart" is particularly ethereal and lyrically wise, with ghostly background vocals perched atop bass and drums, proving that Goodie is one to watch. -Geena Kloeppel

“No Dogs Allowed” is the delightful new album from Boston’s Sidney Gish

Since her first release in 2015, Sidney Gish has put out four full length albums, an undeniably impressive feat for a 20 year old undergrad student at Northeastern University. Her latest album, the delightful No Dogs Allowed, is every bit as charming as her previous releases, but with a noticeable edge up on production, a task that Gish undertook single handedly. At its core, No Dogs Allowed rivals the songwriting prowess of any (Sandy) Alex G record, and shines with its endearing, twee characteristics, reminiscent of a signature K Records release. Gish could surely make Calvin Johnson crack a smile. -Charley Ruddell
