Out this week, ok, tyler’s new album ‘PROFESSIONAL PRETENDER’ takes us on a journey through a range of genres and emotions, showcasing his exceptional range as an artist, producer and musician. Peppered with ethereal voice memo vignettes, the album heads off in totally unexpected directions but is tied together by Tyler’s authentic emotional depth and subtle dark humor. For example, the opening track “Jenny, u were my first” is a super catchy song with a jazzy sax solo that’s about falling in love with your dead girlfriend’s sister. Originally from Tennessee but now based in NYC, Tyler Moore is a pure one-stop shop writing and self-producing all his own music. Although not tied to a specific genre, when pressed he describes his music as a cross between Rex Orange County, Dominic Fike and The 1975. Having already had his music synced in Netflix’s “Devil In Ohio” and “Pieces Of Her”, […]

“Some Songs”, the modestly titled sophomore album by Nashville singer-songwriter Juni Ata takes us on a nostalgic trip through classic Americana. Touching on all the precious moments we experience throughout life’s journey, Juni’s earnest and emotional vocals breathe life into his poetic lyrics. The five-track EP features a range of talented local musicians and singers Sierra Ferrell, Madi Diaz and Lauren Farrah. This record was a labor of collaboration as much as any other love. From the outset it was an endeavor that provided us impetus to calling up everyone we knew, admired, or to whom we otherwise felt drawn. Some said yes, some maybe, some no. The people that said yes became the album. Their voices are forever entwined with mine, their stories blurring to take shape in my song. In this case, it took a village to raise a child. And what a dear child she has grown to be! –     Juni Ata After […]

The sophomore album from Canadian singer-songwriter Päter, ‘WHEREFORE WEEP I THEN?’ is a pure expression of their unique, eccentric indie pop style. The EP addresses struggles of love and all its accompanying anxieties; all delivered in a wry, subversive tone. Päter’s latest single, “FAN FAN FAN” is a quirky breakup song which approaches the sensitive topic with a welcome bit of levity: FAN FAN FAN was written from the point of unrequited love when you’ve cried every last tear, lost every last minute of sleep and things start to get a bit topsy turvy. There’s a deliriousness to it. I wrote this when I was feeling particularly stubborn about a relationship that wasn’t going my way. It let me release the tension around it and laugh at myself a bit. I think if you’ve ever been there, you’ll understand the melodrama of this song. It feels that dramatic when you’re in it. –     Päter Iran-born and […]

The eponymous album ‘Navah Sea’ by British producer/songwriter Phil Simmonds discusses themes of love and the evolution of relationships, self-reflection and personal growth. The album is pleasantly eclectic with a bit of a chamber pop throwback vibe a la Sgt. Pepper’s and Pet Sounds. Phil’s soulful, melancholic vocals create a dreamy vibe throughout the album. This vocal aesthetic is most potently expressed in the song “Maybe You Could Change the World”, a beautifully poignant ballad about a father’s mixed feelings of hope and concern at the birth of his child. The moniker, Navah Sea was originally created by Phil Simmonds to highlight his skills as a singer and artist after being widely known for his production and songwriting.

The debut EP Enfield by Tejano artist David de la Garza, better known as DLG., is a journal of his personal development. Each song was composed in a different place — either mentally, physically, or in the case of “Tortuga” temporally, having been recorded when he was just 14. The concept is to not just showcase a collection of new songs, but to document his growth as an artist over time. Behind the lush grooves, the songs deal with the notion of stepping into the unknown and knowing that it will change you. DLG. focused on these themes of self-empowerment and the progression of life as he continued to grow and develop as a musician himself.  “The Storm” specifically was made almost entirely with sounds from objects in my bedroom. The kick drum is me literally kicking a microphone, the snare is me slamming a book shut, and lots of other small weird sounds. […]
