Poplife "Bad Attitude"

Bruce Jazz trio Poplife released a new single last month called “Bad Attitude”. This is the funky yacht rock of Ben McFadden (Keys, Vocals, Guitar) (aka McFabulous) along with Foul Tip’s Adam Luksetich (Bass) and Ed Bornstein (Drums). For this single, their first in a year, the trio recruited the talented Vivian McConnell (aka V.V. Lightbody) on backing vocals.

   

The Burst and Bloom "Winter"

The Burst and Bloom seems to be on a mission to release a new song each month this year, and May’s track is called “Winter”. This is the amped-up Emo Rock of Adrian Serrano, Juan Santiago, Tyler Leninger, and Vincent Depierro.

It was only a couple of week’s ago that the group released an introspective track called “Dead Dads Club” that can also be streamed below.

You can catch The Burst and Bloom at Record Breakers on May 18th with Aunt Kelly and The Weekend Run Club.

   

Town Criers "It Ain't Love"

Town Criers have released a new single called “It Ain’t Love”. This is the first new music we’ve had from the rock trio since their 2018 self-titled debut.

You can catch Town Criers at Empty Bottle on May 6th with Modern Vices and Kachi.

   

The Widowers "Give Me Some Spirit"

The Widowers recently released the second single, “Arctic Coast”, from their new album, Give Me Some Spirit. This is primarily the project of singer/songwriter Matthew Sigur.

The video for the album’s lead single, “The Spirit”, paints an interesting and sadly true picture of suburban parenthood.

   

Successes

Successes released their self-titled debut EP last month. This is the driving Rock of George Mitchell (Guitar, Vocals), Ben Ryan (Guitar), Bill Shouldis (Bass), and Ben Spear (Drums).
