Jake Hays debuts his sizzling retro-inspired new single, “All I’ve Got to Say,” due out on October 28, 2022. The Southern California native has a knack for the performing arts, with songwriter, actor, and director titles to his name. His band, Maudlin Strangers, signed with BMG/Vagrant Records in 2015 after he spent his youth touring professionally and diving into the songwriting process. Throughout his career, he’s shared the stage with many well-known bands, including Bad Suns, Cold War Kids, and LANY. As a songwriter, his credits include writing with Matt Sorum (Guns N’Roses, Velvet Revolver), Grammy Award-winner Holly Knight (Aerosmith, Pat Benatar), and Cherie Currie (The Runaways). As a producer, he amassed over 69.8 million streams with his work for HUNNY’s “Televised,” and 7.1 million streams for his own work, including his lead single, “Sleep Talk.” The release of his debut EP, “Room 13,” was the first-time fans and critics got a glimpse at his self-titled musical style after a house fire ruined the body of work he was making for Maudlin Strangers.
He launches “All I’ve Got to Say,” laying the groundwork for a unique sonic landscape and plenty of emotional frustration. Powered by an electric guitar track that lights up the musicality all around it, the verses feature an unrestrained sense of vulnerability in which Hays begs the object of his affection to recognize the situation they’re in. Co-written with one of his best friends, Alexander Morgan (a fellow producer operating under the moniker Schmorgle), the two came together to revive an old chorus originally written in 2016, into the full rhythm-forward, tongue-in-cheek version it is today. Meandering between riff-heavy choruses and stripped-down electric guitar verses, the track demands your attention, only to leave you drowning in the murky waters of uncertainty. Check out Jake Hays’ new single, “All I’ve Got to Say.”
The Los Angeles native recently made waves on TikTok, creating trends using her hit songs “Love Bracelets” and “Nintendo Bitch.” By coupling high-energy beats with positive messages, Izza prides herself on creating music that can be used as medicine for those who need it most.
According to Genius, “Not many can do so with the same effortlessly confident feel and focus on playful fun as Izza.” Izza’s empowering lyrics encourage self-love, normalize vulnerability, and motivate listeners to live their dreams and follow their dreams. The former USC Music School grad is an advocate for mental health and has been able to perform her message and new songs at 320 Festival alongside artists like Chris Martin of Coldplay, Elohim, and Social House.
In 2019 on Piano Day, the 88th day of the year, Adrian happened to tune Mariko’s piano. He asked if she wanted to play together; she said maybe. Realizing she might be able to return to her long-lost passion, music, they connected and started rehearsing with the hopes of playing out. Before they ever got the chance he moved to California, and soon after COVID-19 shut everything down. But they kept playing and sending ideas. Now, with an extensive catalog of 50+ songs, they are releasing their first album, Ignite the Sky, recorded at Earwig Studio in Seattle, WA.
Ignite the Sky chronicles Mariko’s journey of finding her birth parents during COVID, while processing the events and struggles of 2020 in quarantine. The self-produced and mostly self-played collection of songs, save for their drummer, Jason Edwards, lends to the intimate nature of the album along with the acoustic instruments and vintage keys. Using inspiration from nature, “Torn Vine” introduces others to the identity struggles of an adoptee, while “Biggest Wave” illustrates the immense weight of connecting to birth parents and discovering a love and loss so deep. The upbeat latin groove of “15,000 Days” isn’t what it seems at first–rather, it was 15,000 days that had passed until Mariko and her birth parents reunited once again. “Ignite the Sky” the title track, encompasses many themes across the band, adoption, and quarantine: distance, loss, hopelessness, separation, but ultimately faith that stars will align again for reconnection in the future.
Musician and multi-instrumentalist, Davey Harris, reflects on the power of a past love on new single “Ms Georgia,” out October 27, 2022. After years spent performing with The Tins, he embarked on his own project, releasing his first singles “Self Saboteur” and “Predictable.” His storytelling ranges from warnings of climate change to transparent self-reflections layered over psychedelic folk rock instrumentation.
On Harris’s new single, “Ms Georgia,” he uses kaleidoscopic sounds and sonic landscapes to take listeners on a journey through heartache. Written intuitively in a songwriting session, the track burst to life with the nostalgia of bittersweet remembrance. From the murky vocal effects to the 70’s rock influences and rhythmic intricacies, Harris was inspired by the chaos of his mind. As he tells the story of the person and the place that got away, listeners dive deep into the internal conflict of missing someone and knowing you have to let them go.Check out Davey Harris’s new single, “Ms Georgia”.
Marvin Tate’s D-Settlement today shared “Trouble a Come” from their 2002 third album American Icons, which is now available on DSPs for the first time ever. On the song, Tate shared the following insight: “Trouble a Come was written during a time when I questioned the religion I was ensconced in from birth. What I found was hypocrisy and mismanagement. I decided then to define my own faith. I’m good now, questions have been answered.”
The track follows two previously released songs: “The Ballad of Corey Dykes” from 1999’s The Minstrel Show and “Turn Da Fuckin’ Lights Back On” from 1997’s Partly Cloudy, and is the final single the group will share ahead of the release of Marvin Tate’s D-Settlement, a retrospective box set reissue of the locally renowned Chicago group’s first three albums, out on November 4th, 2022 via American Dreams Records.
This will be the first time these albums will be available digitally, and they will also be available as limited edition 4xLP and 3xCD box sets, with remastered audio by Mikey Young (Ty Segall, Parquet Courts) and art design by Field of Grass (Numero Group, Paradise of Bachelors), accompanied with an oral history book featuring words by Angel Bat Dawid, Ben LaMar Gay, Tim Kinsella, and the late jaimie branch, among many other voices of Chicago’s thriving music scene.
This is Augusta, Toronto-based 7-piece Alternative Rock band, and we’re known for “sparking ferocious dance parties wherever [we] go.”
Formed just this year, Augusta is led by Joe Dent (former band leader of A Fellow Ship), August Jones (Toronto session musician and touring member of The Reklaws, the Pick Brothers band and more), and Zach Stuckey (Toronto session musician and touring member of Anna Sofia, Dani Doucette, and more).
“Little Birds” was written during a cottage trip between August and I. We took all our recording gear and went to August’s cottage to write music for the week. After spending 5 days writing songs that will never be shared, in the last 24 hours we finally struck gold. Born from an idea that I was ready to throw away, we stayed up all night writing from start to finish the song that perfectly sums up Augusta‘s musical identity.
Listen to “Little Birds” on streaming platforms everywhere now.
You can also watch the official video on YouTube.
Little birds in their cage can’t make them go away
They’ve been here so long that their wings won’t open to let them fly
The music video for “Little Birds” is the directorial debut of Toronto actor Hallea Jones, best known for her role as Eden Hawkins in Netflix’s Lock and Key. Augusta was honored to have Hallea bring their vision to life by producing and directing their debut music video.
Thanks for listening – you’ll be hearing more from us soon.Joe of Augusta
international experimental four-piece Themes For Great Cities announces full-length debut album Themes For Great Cities: Tallinn as a love letter to the city of Tallinn, Estonia, due out February 2, 2023 via Moroderik Musik, including a limited run on vinyl, and available to pre-order here. The first single “Magazyn Sosysky” is out now. Watch the group’s first live performance of the track at the opening of Tallinn Music Week 2021 here.
In September 2021, four musicians gathered to celebrate the city of Tallinn, Estonia, and harvested sounds that tell the story of the city. The group consists of Mew‘s Jonas Bjerre (modular synthesizer, piano), Erki Pärnoja (guitar, keyboard), Jonas Kaarnamets (guitar, keyboard), and Alex Maiolo (modular synthesizer, recordings). Together, the four-piece create distinctly their own sound using methods never used before, without MIDI, and only with modular synths, augmented by guitar and keyboards. The idea came from the desire to shed light on cities that don’t often get attention in effort to highlight and celebrate hidden treasures that lay within lesser-known metropolises.
The forthcoming album, Themes For Great Cities: Tallinn is an eight track tribute to the city of Tallinn, Estonia. It creatively brings together the present moment in the city and its layered past using the sounds of the city. Though the ultimate goal was to make music, the final result proved to be even more than just music. Maiolo explains, “The only directive was that the end result be musical. Some of the sounds we used in the piece are recognizable. Some were reassembled in a way that they maybe seemed familiar, but not quite. Some were ‘behind the scenes,’ dictating other sounds, rhythms, or changes. This is an allegory for the various levels cities affect us, from the ostensible to the subconscious.”
“don’t wanna be your friend” was created after the band returned home from their biggest headline tour yet. Confiding, “Co-written with their friend Jon Capeci from the band Nightly, “don’t wanna be your friend” details the all too relatable feeling of being in a relationship with someone you love and feel close to but knowing that you need to move on as that person is not the right one for you. joan further reveals, “it’s also about growing up though and knowing that you just can’t continue being friends with each other, because you know how that situation turns out. hope this song resonates with you in some way – makes you realize you need to cut that person out of your life, makes you move, makes you want to start a band, makes you want to call your best friend :).”
“don’t wanna be your friend” features colorful synths over electronic-dipped landscapes and dream-filled melodies culminating into a sing-a-long worthy chorus. The song is a standout and empowering pop anthem all about moving on. The accompanying video shows joan’s light hearted and comedic side complete with an alien invasion to boot.
joan (Alan Benjamin Thomas and Steven Rutherford) have spent the past few years building their world, single by single, tour date by tour date; from their debut EP, 2019’s portra, to the much-loved cloudy & its sister EP partly cloudy, to 2021’s hi & bye EPs. Their songs have been streamed over 120 million times, with well over a million listeners a month across streaming platforms.
joan have enjoyed US and international tours supporting the likes of Jeremy Zucker, COIN, Bloc Party and The Aces, as well as playing to fans across Asia with headline shows and festivals in the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong – they return to Asia for the biggest shows yet, includes dates at a basketball arena and a theme park.
joan’s infectious blend of pop eras & styles belies their roots in Little Rock, Arkansas, but their sense of warmth and community from those around them at home gives their music a sense of belonging often missing from others’ and that extends to their fanbase, with whom they interact via a successful Patreon page and through free meet & greets at every show.
2023 promises to be the band’s biggest yet, with the release of their debut album and worldwide touring & festivals.
Genre-bending electronic artist Mike Inzano, better known as INZO, has released the title track off of his forthcoming Earth Magic EP following the recent announcement of his first-ever headline tour. Featuring DJ and singer-songwriter Elohim, this new track is the latest in a fast-growing list of revered collaborators.
LISTEN TO “EARTH MAGIC (FEAT. ELOHIM)”
“Earth Magic,” via Lowly. (home of NGHTMRE, Said The Sky, TroyBoi, and more,) heralds a new direction for his sound marked by the more quiet, introspective areas of his range. Created during lockdown, Earth Magic is more cinematic and calmer, with lo-fi beats, piano breakdowns, and transcendent synth beams—a byproduct of INZO’s renewed focus on health and wellness. Making music itself has become therapeutic for him, so it’s fitting that his new work reflects that cozy headspace. As much as he enjoys playing live, he especially loves the quieter, more intimate moments of listening back to a track he’s made for the first time and realizing it’s exactly what he’d envisioned.
“I like to make music for other people to enjoy,” he says, “but at the end of the day it’s an expression of me.”
The official video for the track, which remains unreleased, sets the tone for the project with a visual depiction of the inspiration behind the album, featuring INZO in various stunning nature scenes across Italy and Utah. Watch the official teaser and check out the full list of tour dates below. Get additional tour details and tickets here.
My first band was with my mother and my sister Nancy. My mother would lead us around the kitchen table on the second-floor of our two-family house in Malden, Massachusetts, banging pots and pans while we sang, “McNamara’s Band” at the top of our lungs, singing “Ba-da-da-da! Da-da-da-da!” for the trumpet parts. We were Italian, but my Mom always fantasized that she was actually 100% Irish. My Mom still sings all the time. Loves to sing and cry, sing and cry. Her mother and her used to sing together all the time, harmonizing every night while they washed the dishes. Even my Mom’s father, whose parents came from Italy, was always singing Irish music. The Irish have a great tradition of folk music so that may be from whence my love of simple melody, acoustic guitar, and a deep drone comes. My Mom and her mother also loved cowboy music. Not country music, but real cowboy music. “Home, Home on the Range,” you know? Gene Autry, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams. There’s this great saying that country music is, “three chords and the truth.” And John Prine always said that beyond the third fret on the guitar was “uncharted territory” for him. Maybe I’m lazy or I just love those three chords, but both sentiments describe my approach to composition.
My Dad’s grandfather and his brothers had come to Boston from Italy, and they had had a little music ensemble. They would come and play guitar and violin outside their house, which embarrassed my dad to no end. So, there’s a little bit of music on both sides of my genetic code.
I first picked up the guitar in the second grade and promptly quit. I had this teacher in a smoky storefront studio across from the Catholic school I went to. He was mean, impatient, and unhappy. He was frustrated with how long it was taking me to learn, “Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley.” So I quit.
Little Fuss is an art-pop duo consisting of Olivia Martinez and Cody Von Lehmden, a pair who bond over the strange daily humors of their little life in Boston, MA. After forming during the pandemic, the band broke onto the scene with their free flowing live energy and restlessly creative perspective on pop music.
The release of their 2021 debut EP, Hazy, saw the band exploring the outer peripheries of their sound. Their single, “Human of the Century,” perfectly embodies the dichotomy of their music, with inquisitive lyrics set against cinematic arrangements.
With their upcoming debut album, “Girls at Parties,” set to be released later this year, Little Fuss has gotten meticulously specific with their exploration of the detailed aesthetic they feel embodies their sound. Drawing from a wide range of influences, from David Bowie and Kate Bush to a once-scandalous Paul Cezanne painting, “Girls at Parties” seeks to inject a rich variety of musical and lyrical content into a 9-track pop album.

Lil Yachty has officially released his internet-toppling, viral hit “Poland”. The standalone track has quickly taken the world by storm, with Yachty’s frank yet infectious hook inspiring an outpouring of media coverage, memes, fan-created covers, and even renaissance-style artwork of his storied voyage to Poland. With a run time of only 1:23, Yachty proves he doesn’t need much time to craft an inventive, ascendant, and addictive earworm.
To accompany the release, Yachty joined forces with director Cole Bennett for a new music video, available now.
Glory Guitars, a new coming-of-age memoir by Gogo Germaine, is available nationally via University of Hell Press on this day, International Day of the Grrrl. The memoir on teen rebellion has been described as “if Howl had been written by a 15-year-old fanzine writer high on life, booze and illicit pharmaceuticals” (Louder Than War).
Reviews have compared it to movies like Kids and Thirteen, books like Neon Angel (Cherie Curie), and even Linda Jaivin’s sci-fi erotic novel, Rock’N’Roll Babes From Outer Space. More plentiful praise for Glory Guitars at the bottom of this email.
Gogo just returned from her NYC release at KGB, and will be doing another book launch in her hometown of Denver at Tattered Cover this evening followed by a punk after party at the Crypt.
The book can be ordered at University of Hell Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and everywhere books are sold. Limited edition colors are only available at the U of H site; red will be available nationwide.
fast rising Edinburgh-based band of brothers Dubinski share another slice of hard-hitting indie/alt rock with new single ‘Fall Right In The Grave’, taken from their upcoming self-titled debut album, due for release on November 11th via Gnu Roam/Kartel Music Group. Stream ‘Fall Right In The Grave’ Here – Watch ‘Fall Right In The Grave’ Video Here – Pre-order Dubinski Album Here.
Framed by coming to terms with death, ‘Fall Right In The Grave’ serves as the final single from the band’s debut album out Nov 11th. Introduced by a pulsing beat, the track builds into an all out rager with heavy guitar riffs and high energy vocals, eventually ending with a blissful, melodic vocal outro. Perfectly complementing the track, the music video, directed by Martin J Pickering, follows the band as they embark on a spiritual ritual and gives a glimpse of the band’s powerful live performance, which they’ve become known for.
The new cut comes on the heels of indie banger ‘Beyond Me’, anthemic single ‘MTSB’,released alongside the vaporwave-inspired animated video, and ‘Soothsayer’ – a hard-hitting cut praised by CLOUT for its “classic UK indie rock sound but with a slick, modern cutting edge”.
Toronto hyperpop artist Sufferin Mall releases glitched out new single “luv u always”
“I think I might just be addicted to the drama.” So begins the addictive and melodramatic new single from rising Toronto hyperpop artist Sufferin Mall. Cycling rapidly between disparate genres such as trap, drum and bass, and even mellow indie rock, the song grabs your attention and keeps you hooked with its glitched out production, sticky earworms, and lyrics that are endlessly fun and heartbreaking in equal measure.
The genesis of the song felt fated. It started when Sufferin Mall attended a small Halloween show headlined by local hyperpop gods Blackwinterwells and 8485. He was not only deeply impressed with their performances; he also felt a sense of urgency that people from his part of the world were making the music he wanted to make at the highest level. When he got home at 3am that night, he began working on the song that would become “luv u always”.
The song was an artistic breakthrough for Sufferin Mall. He had been working away in his dark basement apartment for a year on, Crushed, his EP of hyperpop bangers and this was a perfect closer, a recapping of all the themes of heartbreak and gleeful self-destruction that run throughout the album. And the seamless blend of far-reaching styles was a totally new direction, and a sign of things to come. With its unique song structure and its daring, ear-candy stuffed production, the song holds its own unique place in the bustling hyperpop scene.
Sufferin Mall is the project of Yoyo Comay, a musician and writer from Toronto. It is a conceptual space for him to explore the relationship between desire and suffering, named after the infamous Dufferin Mall, an early space of desire where, as a child, Yoyo felt the cold pleasure of the unattainable for the first time. Initially, the Sufferin Mall project will take the form of an EP, Crushed, which will be released in 2022. The sound of the EP is twisted metal and spun sugar, like licking honey off of a razor blade. In addition to his music, Yoyo also writes poetry — his first book, States of Emergency, is forthcoming from Vehicule Press in 2023. This unique blend of poetry and pop music results in a dedication and attention to the sounds of words, tuned to provide maximal pleasure while always maintaining a depth and conceptual undercurrent. Sufferin Mall is a project for everyone — brilliant, shining surfaces that also reward deeper reflection. Love,
Castle Frank is a Toronto based recording artist. The brainchild of Max Bergé, his sound combines buzzing synths and heavy drum machines with singer-songwriter influences, skittering the edges between indie rock and synth pop.
Castle Frank makes sure that people don’t need to pick between emotional lyrics, gritty synths and massive drums. With his debut “Shallows,” he delivered a washed-out and anthemic track followed closely by the bouncy and sarcastically carefree “Just Kids.”
At the age of 19, Max left a small suburb on the West Coast of BC with nothing but a duffel bag and landed himself in Toronto. He ended up dead broke, living in the storage room of a guitar shop in the city’s west end. During his first winter here, he holed up in the basement of the shop and began writing about his experiences in the city. With a laptop, mic, a drum machine, and a few synthesizers, Max began writing and working on a new collection of tracks.
Years later, those songs became the foundation for Castle Frank’s debut record which is coming out in 2023. Collaborating with producers Nixon Boyd (Hollerado, Dizzy) and Matt Lederman (Rural Alberta Advantage, Brave Shores, !!!,) Castle Frank’s debut record is the merging of his influences: from producers like Jack Antonoff, Grimes, Emile Haynie and JPEGMAFIA, to the foundations of classic song-writing in the vein of artists like David Bowie and The National.
Montreal-based singer and songwriter Annabel Gutherz shares the acoustic video for her cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars.”
Filmed in a seemingly endless field of sunflowers, the acoustic video for “Life on Mars” is a vibrant and stunning visual. In contrast to the theatrical and full-bodied sound of her original cover, Annabel’s raw and powerful vocals take centerstage on the stripped back version of the song.
Annabel writes about her decision to cover David Bowie’s “Life on Mars”: “My interpretation of the rich narrative conveyed through Bowie’s abstract and surreal lyricism is one of sadness, longing, and hope, with a commentary about society and the media that still rings true today.I love the emotional dimensionality of the story being told, the melody, the production… everything! I hope to honor Bowie, one of the most prolific and brilliant artists of our time, and his lasting legacy with this cover.”
breakout singer-songwriter Mimi Webb announces that her highly-anticipated debut album Amelia will be released on March 3, 2023, via EPIC Records. Amelia is available for pre-order now.
“Announcing my first ever album is such an important moment in my career that honestly, sometimes I wasn’t even sure would happen. But after 3 years of hard work, I just can’t wait to share this body of work with all of you who have helped me get to where I am today,” Mimi shares. “The album is named Amelia, my full first name, as there are two sides of me that I want people to get to know. There’s Amelia, the girl from the UK countryside who loves to be at home with her family, friends, and dogs; and Mimi, the pop artist who loves to be up on stage traveling the world. It was important for me to capture this duality with songs written for both of those girls, and I’m excited for you all to get to know them!”
Sounding bigger and better than ever before, Bad Sounds return with their knock-out new single
‘Nu Me Nu Yu’.
Self-produced and mixed by Nathan Boddy (Mura Masa, Biig Piig, PinkPantheress), bursting with energy the track is an unmissable reminder that Bad Sounds are ever-evolving and here back once again to stay.
Sharing more, the band explained: “We’re absolutely delighted be the latest in a long list of bands ripping off the Beatles and repackaging it as our own. ‘Nu Me Nu Yu’ is a song that was originally destined for one of our side projects, but everybody we know told us it sounds too much like Bad Sounds, so we eventually got the hint and now we feel silly for not realizing it ourselves. The lyrics are pretty self explanatory, they’re just spelled stupid.
The video is super DIY just like they were when we first started out. We built a room of mirrors and spent a day bumping into our reflections, and trying to not break the glass floor/ceiling/walls. It was super fun to shoot and kinda trippy to watch. We really hope people like it!
Nu Me Nu Yu is the band’s first release since January which saw the launch of their impressive EP ‘Escaping from A Violent Time Vol 2.’. The dreamy five track record played host to some stand-out collaborative moments including ‘Move Into Me’ which featured New Zealand two-piece BROODS and ‘You Move backwards’ which features hotly tipped UK artist Ruti.
The band’s collaborations continue outside of their own music as their production and songwriting network flourishes in their purpose built studio in the Cotswolds. They’ve had their finger on the pulse collaborating with lots of important new acts coming through, including Arlo Parks (co-writing and producing track ‘Bluish’ off her debut album) and others like Rose Gray, Miso Extra, Joey Maxwell, Devon, Max Pope, VC Pines, SOFY and LCYTN.
