Will Dailey brings introspective folk to Bath Heritage Fest in Maine (6.30)

Boston singer-songwriter Will Dailey makes the type of introspective, feel-good folk that sticks in your thoughts. The single “It Already Would Have Not Worked Out By Now” (streaming below) off of his most recent album Golden Walker, released June 1, only further proves his ability to stay relevant as a songwriter. The melodic track is reminiscent of Vance Joy in style, but with a baroque build that is undeniably that of Will Dailey. Fresh off a string of local Boston shows, Dailey is now on his way to play the Bath Heritage Festival in Bath, Maine on June 30. After that, he will be hitting Nextival in Crownsville, Maryland on July 14. - Lilly Milman

   

Record of the Month: Renata Zeiguer "Old Ghost" - release party at Elsewhere 06.20

On first listen, the songs and sounds of Renata Zeiguer’s debut album Old Ghost are deceivingly simple. Indie rock influences clash with her delicate voice in interesting if not straightforward ways. Yet there’s an appealing aspect of Old Ghost that continues to draw the listener in as she paints an image of the world that is filled with naturally occurring voids that are at once brutal and beautiful. Her voice feels equally morose and triumphant as she explores themes of identity and loss. Nature also plays a large role in the Zeiguer’s lyrics; cosmic elements of our world like the moon and the mundane creatures who inhabit it both haunt and captivate the singer. These poetic lyrics burrow themselves in her ethereal voice and unfold in expansive and cathartic moments as the production swerves from angular to harmonious. Old Ghost is an album that burns softly if heard in the background but illuminates brightly when it is lived with. The entire record can be streamed below and you can hear Zeiguer perform at Elsewhere on June 20. - Tucker Pennington

The Stray Birds "Nothing To Say About It Now" turns resignation into catharsis

 "Love has nothing to say about it now" sing Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven in unison, until de Vitry's voice vanishes into the distance with a repeated "nothing to say about it now..." The new Stray Birds' (de Vitry, Craven and Charlie Muench) single "Nothing To Say About It Now" creeps up from behind and pulls at your heartstrings unexpectedly. Somewhere between a crystal clear electric guitar that repeats the main vocal melody and a subtle acoustic guitar that drifts into the ether, this song completely stole my breath away. I'm surely not the only one eager to hear the band's new album Let It Pass, out 9/7. -Geena Kloeppel

 

   

New Jonny Clousson EP Available for Streaming & Download

Jonny Clousson, of North Carolina’s Almost People, recently shared a pair of tracks. The Two Cents EP gradually builds melodically in an uphill climb. A conversational, stream-of-consciousness lyricism opens an avenue into the emotive, internal monologue. Casual, contagious energy and sing-along-inspiring hooks make you want to stay there. Instead of getting caught up in the past or the future, slow it down, listen, and enjoy the moment.
