“Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better”


Bleeker is a Canadian rock quartet formed by the Perkins brothers.

Their new song “(Give a Little Bit More) Disaster” is a definitely a bleak view of life (pun intended).



Phondupe is an oddly named electronic producer from Sydney.

“Eel City”, a song of isolation and survival, will be included on his forthcoming album ONYKIA.

“Eel City”

Noga Erez

Noga Erez, musician and producer from Tel Aviv, gives us this fresh song “Views”.

For this futuristic hip-hop track she enlisted her partner Ori Rousso and singer-rapper, Reo Cragun.



Chromatics shared a new song “Teacher”.

It was to appear on the 2014 album Dear Tommy that was never released.

The song sounds so retro, and so good.



CocoRosie is the duo Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady.

Born in the U.S. they united in Paris as a musical entity performing throughout the continent.

By combing different musical styles their sound is difficult to categorize. Some call it Freak Folk. Put the Shine On is their 7th album which includes the song “Burning Down the House” (not the Talking Heads song).  

      “Burning Down the House”

Alison Mosshart

Alison Mosshart, lead singer of The Kills and the supergroup The Dead Weather, has just delivered a song under her own name.

“Rise” portends an exciting solo career.

Fiona Apple

It’s difficult to describe the brilliance of Fiona Apple’s new album as she defies musical conventions.

Fetch the Bolt Cutters is a paean to feminist power in all of its idiosyncrasies and nuances. Her voice, from whisper to a scream, with found percussion and zigzagging song structures, is mesmerizing.

This album deserves a complete listen so it is problematic to select one representative song; therefore, I’ll give you 2 to intrigue: the title track “Fetch the Bolt Cutters” and “Under the Table”.   

“Fetch the Bolt Cutters”

“Under the Table”


Austra is a band but the only permanent member is singer/songwriter Katie Stelmanis.

It’s been 3 years since the last album. Expect Hirudin on May Day.

The song “Anywayz” is an alluring advance.   


Tara MacLean & Catherine MacLellan

Two exquisite singer/songwriters, Tara MacLean and her friend Catherine MacLellan, gathered together on Prince Edward Island in the Canadian northeast to record this beautiful song to guide us through the pandemic.

“This Storm”  

Lopsided World of L

Jonathan L, new music to escape thoughts of the pandemic.

This teenage singer/songwriter/ukulele player from Oakland is a charm.
