New Katie Ellen EP Available for Streaming

A few days ahead of its July 20th release via Lauren Records, Still Life, the new EP from Katie Ellen, is available for streaming. Balancing a melodic, earnest ease with an infectious energy, the songs wrap one up in a state of reflective assessment. Anika Pyle exhibits a level of focus and clarity. Within her vocals, there’s a gentle strength which adheres. Katie Ellen is set to head out on tour with Lemuria and Dusk at the end of this week.

   

New Track: "You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)" - Spirit Haus

Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR, Former Belle) recently shared a new single from his other musical outlet, Spirit Haus. Keys provide an ethereal glow as the heavy thump of backend knocks one to the ground in “You Don’t Love Me (Like You Used To)”. The sadness of a relationship reaching its end is illuminated as you witness a one way conversation. Emerging from the darkness, the song occupies a somber step forward, as delicate layers of production glisten in the moonlight.

 

   

New Crazy Bull Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Crazy Bull's The Past Is Today is loaded with raunchy riffs, as the quartet’s retrofitted, 70’s heavy psych-blues rock motors toward a collision course with your eardrums. Channeling Leslie West, the band hovers between a hard rock/metal threshold, establishing a groove, and then branching off into extended, escalating, guitar-fueled fire. What maybe starts off as bar blues quickly accelerates into a mystical stratosphere. Crazy Bull will be bringing their raw brand of epic rock 'n' roll to Kung Fu Necktie on Saturday, July 21, supported by Mota and Alms.

   

New Track: "Be a Light" - Ali Awan

If a temporary summer trip is in order, “Be a Light,” the new single from Ali Awan, could provide the sound. Harmonized vocals fortify the loose, laidback, psych-folk ride. The grit of the guitar strums are smoothed over by the shimmer of keys, as the continuous churn of the rhythm marches onward in a direct, mind-tunneling expanse. He'll be sharing a billing at Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, August 9, with Lightninging and Mesmeric Haze.
