The forthcoming The Beautiful Undead LP will be released on September 9th on their hometown’s Keeled Scales. You can order clear-vinyl, CD, digital and bundled versions of that either from Bandcamp or from the label’s webstore now.
“90 In November” — elliptically poetic inside a melancholic jangle — is the reassuring, resonant title track to the first full-length from Austin’s Why Bonnie. Released by Keeled Scales on August 19th, you can pre-order peacock-green-vinyl, black-vinyl, CD, cassette and digital editions of that either from them or from Bandcamp now.
On April 1st Tucson, Arizona’s Karima Walker releases her demos collection, and you can preview its oceanic, misty “how it falls apart” above.

M. Bailey Stephenson — once Sun Riah — now records under the name Moriah Bailey, and “So You Say…” is an enchanting spell cast with a light touch and beaming independence and her sparkling new single. Out through the courtesy of Keeled Scales, you can buy it from Bandcamp or stream it using one of these links.
Melbourne’s Jo Schornikow has announced the release of ALTAR, her next album, and “Visions” is loose, poetic, contemplative and one of its nine tracks. Out from May 20th care of Austin’s Keeled Scales, you can pre-order milky-clear-vinyl, CD and digital versions of it from them now.
(NB: The Autumn Roses will be off for the rest of this week.)
Today is the day that Lafayette, Louisiana’s Renée Reed releases her self-titled, debut LP, and from it this is the spectral, spare and silver-lit “I Saw A Ghost”.

Thoughtfully ambling, “Waking the Dreaming Body” is the gently-expressive title track to the forthcoming LP from Tucson’s Karima Walker.
