Onliness (songs of solitude & singularity) is the poetic title of the next album from Scottish alternative-Folk legend Josienne Clarke, and “The Tangled Tree” is its live-wired, epic and ageless first single and lead track. Out from April 14th, you can pre-order smokey-marble-vinyl, black-vinyl and CD editions of it along with handwritten lyric sheets from Bandcamp. Additional download and pre-saving information meanwhile is here.
Ultramodern as it rings with tradition, “eclipse de amor” is the bewitching, fearlessly-styled new single from Brooklyn’s NOIA — one featuring Puerto Rican, New York City-based duo Buscabulla. You can stream it here. Her debut album gisela is out care of Cascine from March 31st, and you can pre-order it on Bandcamp today. Gorilla vs. Bear.
Lia Kohl is a cellist and composer from Chicago, and she’s generously shared the stormy, revolving “sit on the floor and wait for storms” from her forthcoming LP The Ceiling Reposes. Streaming links for this are here. The album meanwhile is released on March 10th by American Dreams Records, and you can pre-order cassette, vinyl and digital editions of it from Bandcamp.
Coruscant in a bold crimson, “Crashing Against The Sun” is the beaming, humane brand-new single from Portland, Oregon’s Heather Woods Broderick. She’s just announced the arrival of her next album Labyrinth, which will be released by Western Vinyl on April 7th. Cloudburst-grey-and-white-vinyl, black-vinyl and CD versions of it are up for pre-ordering at their webstore, and it’s on Bandcamp, too.
A sweeping, American-Gothic epic, “Rock the Boat” is the literate, theatric and sharply-focused brand-new single from Fredericksburg, Virginia’s Karen Jonas. Stream it here. The track is taken from her forthcoming album The Restless — one released on March 3rd, but in the meantime you can download her previous five albums and more from Bandcamp.
From beautiful Montclair, New Jersey come Elk City, who recently released their Above The Water LP — one that arrestingly concludes with “Floating Above The Water”, a spectral, resonant panorama. The album is out courtesy of their hometown’s Magic Door Records, you can download it from Bandcamp, and more information about the band can be found here.
Noir-toned guitars growl in tremolos as ghosts swoop from verdant canopies on “Magic”, a dramatic, haunted, charcoal-aura and the spell-casting new single from Montréal’s littleuniverses. You can find a bounty of streaming links for it here, and her self-titled, debut album is released on February 10th.
