B.A. Johnston - Hamilton Wildman's New Record "The Skid Is Hot Tonight"

Hamilton’s wildest performer B.A. Johnston has just released his latest record “The Skid is Hot Tonight” on February 22nd. Based on the tracklisting alone you should be excited about the tomfoolery he will have lined up for us on this upcoming album. Indie88 recently premiered his latest single “Geddy Lee.” The guitar noodles its way through this song with a very indie-reverby and somewhat silly riff as he offers his opinions on Rush. B.A.’s official album release party goes down on March 16th at This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton. He will be touring all over Canada and the UK from March to June. Don’t ya dare miss it! – Kris Gies

   

New Music Video: "The Sun Still Seems to Move" - Shannen Moser

"The Sun Still Seems to Move," a new song from Philly singer-songwriter Shannen Moser, has arisen. The recording possesses a gentle, folk-country progression as Moser narrates in an earnest, emotive manner with raw, gripping beauty. Inserting a poem as vocals bounce and echo off each other, there’s a tender yet escalating tension that tears right through. You can catch Moser this Thursday, February 28, on a Home Outgrown Presents lineup at The Music Ward that also includes The Obsessives and Active Bird Community. (Photo by Vincent Sadonis)

New Music Video: "Loving You (Is Such A Waste of Time)" - The Trust Fund Kids

This Time Next Year, the debut album from Kevin Connor, a.k.a. The Trust Fund Kids, is slated for release on March 15. Jumping out of the gates, "Loving You (Is Such A Waste of Time)" captures an exuberant, appreciative, yet simultaneously dejected lo-fi bedroom-rock sound. Taking in the scenic view, in snow covered suburbia, the footage has a familiar, neighborhood aesthetic. However, as one is taken around a path toward the video’s conclusion, an eerie clarity in the music plays out.

   

Debut Fruut LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Lyrical vulnerability meshes with silky beats in the recordings of Fruut, the latest moniker of Dani Mullen. There’s a graceful, anti-gravity quality to these electropop sounds. With the new album All About You, Mullen explores emotive-laced circumstances in songs whose experiences feel as though they’re being processed/lived through in real time. Intimately hypnotic, these tracks capture an endearing closeness.
