Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections release classy record, play Brighton Music Hall 09.08

Somerville's Magen Tracy isn't shy about inviting listeners into her sonic playground; the singer-songwriter is wholeheartedly engaged in the music. Magen Tracy and the Missed Connections have released their latest record, Long Fuse Burning, a ten-track indie-folk carnival for the senses. The new album employs echoing guitars and fiery drum beats in tracks like "(Even the Good Guys) Fall," melancholy piano melodies in "Move a Crowd," and gorgeous harmonies in songs like "Sweetheart." Magen's performance never dials down the charm; it merely presents it in the most appropriate form for the song's mood. The band has a date at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston on September 8th. We are streaming the country-tinged "Dirty Little Secret" below for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar





Old Cob builds mystery on single "Wasted"

“Wasted,” the sole release by “secret music project” Old Cob, expands the mythos of the anonymous Brooklyn performer through eclectic instrumentation and impressionistic lyrics. Interspersed between a recurring Dixieland banjo loop, shuffling percussion, and warped synthetic hits, Old Cob croons non-sequiturs that evoke feelings of repetition and tropes Americana. “Once upon a time, I would stand in line for the magic show,” Old Cob declares, before the chorus begs the question: “what am I doing here? I should be somewhere else making a living.” Deeply esoteric and impossibly intriguing, your guess is as good as mine as to what Old Cob’s intentions are—my working theory is that they are an early 20th century time traveler who’s unexpectedly landed in present-day New York, but I’m open to suggestion. Until we have more answers, stream “Wasted” below. -Connor Beckett McInerney





Kaycie Satterfield's smart songwriting in "Women's Fiction" EP

Guitarist, singer songwriter Kaycie Satterfield is a welcome voice to the growing scene of NYC storytellers. One of Brooklyn-bred indie rock's best kept secrets, her voice croons confessional lyrics following rhythmic leads and melodic ideas that veer her natural folky approach towards indie-influenced sonic territories. With her powerful and smart songs inspired by jazzy singer-songwriters like Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Kaycie successfully transcends musical genres and hits emotional cords in ways that are never banal. For more news on Kaycie Satterfield, check out her website or label, Brooklyn based paper moon records. - Susan Moon





New Music Video: "E.C.C.B." (Starring LUNCH) - American Trappist

American Trappist and LUNCH recently issued a split EP, aptly titled LUNCH with American Trappist. Directed by Ian Kelly, there's new video from Joe Michelini and friends for the single “E.C.C.B.,” which also stars the gang of LUNCH. Set along the shoreline, the footage depicts a day at the beach & boardwalk, with the custom quirkiness/oddity of that mask-adorned sea creature. You can catch both bands this Thursday, August 22 at Bourbon & Branch, along with Minor Moon. (Photo by Kara Donnelly)
