Monday, June 4 Libella (Carmen Rizzo & Joel Shearer) “Los Angeles”
LA-based producers and musicians Carmen Rizzo and Joel Shearer debut their new collaboration, Libella. Recorded all over the globe, their lush, ambient tracks carry the names of some of the cities they recorded in, including one for our fair city “Los Angeles.”
Tuesday, June 5 Mazzy Star “Quiet, The Winter Harbor”
Mazzy Star have issued less than a handful of records since Hope Sandoval and David Roback began their musical journey in the early 90’s. A newly minted EP – consisting of a new version of 1993’s “So Tonight That I Might See,” alongside a previously unrecorded track, and 2 brand new songs – just came out. We get to share a new one “Quiet, The Winter Harbor,” so grab it today!
Shara Nova aka My Brightest Diamond is a dexterous artist who can front a rock band, perform in a baroque opera, and lead a marching band processional. As we await a new album (dropping this summer), we pop the cork on “Champagne.”
LA outfit Milo Greene are working on their 3rd album due in September. Kicking up their trademark melodies, they embraced the genre of ‘Adult Contemporary’ as their muse and title to the album. We are digging the infectious song, “Move.”
Warpaint co-founder vocalist, guitarist, and producer Theresa Wayman has a solo project she’s calling by her nickname TT. TT has been working on her own music in between tours and being a single mom. Recorded on the road and at her home studio, Wayman plays most of the instruments. “The Dream” explores her love of beats.
