New Track: "New Age People" - Ryan McDevitt

Produced by Roldy Clark, “New Age People,” the debut single from Ryan McDevitt, crafts a mellow, mesmerizing trance. A steady key/percussive-steered beat stabilizes the movement. However, despite McDevitt’s self-assured, semi-spoken delivery, an acknowledgement of insecurity lurks in the lyrics. Displaying outward confidence as the stress of isolation spins within, the track irresistibly sneaks up on you.

Ed Pastorini releases "Strange Lures" LP on 04.14, see the eerily beautiful video "Loss"

Ed Pastorini has been around New York's underground music scene for a minute- the multi-instrumentalist and composer is a member of 101 Crustaceans, who've been a band since the 1980s. Now, Pastorini is back with a new record as a solo artist, called Strange Lures, which is out today. His charming, eerie video for "Loss," a song about just that, is filled with clips of serene landscapes, houses being bulldozed, and ghostly couples dancing. There are also a few brooding images of the artist projected into parts of the video, making for an altogether haunting experience. The release show for the album is set for April 14th at the Owl Parlor in Brooklyn. - Geena Kloeppel

New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

In the ongoing search to find musical treasures, Sandcastle provides a reliable source of riches. The band’s latest EP Bloodstone Mermaid exudes a mystical, enchanting, glam-folk level of intimacy. A pensive, candlelight aesthetic envelops the softly-sung, spindly-strummed selection, retaining a delicate, engaging fragility. On Thursday, April 12, Sandcastle will be performing at Ortlieb's as part of a lineup that alo includes Line Leader, Cookie Tongue, and Cóq.

Dark Tea plays tape release show 04.01 at The Glove

The music of Dark Tea has all the intimacy of lo-fi bedroom recordings—acoustic guitar, casio keyboards, near whispered vocals—but manages to present it with the smooth sentimentality of folk. Gary Canino, the songwriter behind the project, weaves elements from the worlds of indie rock and twangy Americana together into delicate arrangements. The songs gain added emphasis from Canino’s choice to use accents sparingly, only occasionally letting in pedal steel guitar, a guest vocal harmony, or wash of keyboard. With a new tape on the way, Dark Tea will play a release show at The Glove on April 1st before embarking on a west coast tour. Though there are few details about the release, we’re hopeful this isn’t just an April Fool’s prank, get to the show to find out. – Cameron Carr
