Artist of the Month- April 2016

Liza Anne

The T-shirt says “Liza Anne’s World Famous Melancholia.” It isn’t true. Liza Odachowski aka Liza Anne would like you to think her lyrics and mood are like Sharon Van Etten or Waxahatchee, a fun trip into darkness and despair. That isn’t true. There are some somber ballads on Two, Liza Anne’s latest release. The story however is the new material she has. A third album, when it comes, will be a cross between the deep lyricism of Laura Marling and the full energy of Springtime Carnivore. http://www.lizaannemusic.com/

Artist of the Month –  February 2016

It is an old axiom that if the song is right it will reach it’s audience. This month’s artist of the month was chosen by a song. 25 years ago Tori Amos shocked the world with the song “Me and a Gun” on her album Little Earthquakes. The song was description of her own rape years before. Steph Sweet releases a new song in January called “Rape.” The song is visceral and melodic but has the same power that “Me and a Gun” did years before. We include both the link to her site and the song.

Artist of the Month – June 2015

Hiatus Kaiyote

Their North American tour sold out quickly. We were lucky to catch them and were amazed when we did. This 4 piece Australian band is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. We describe them as acid jazz but neo soul and other descriptions abound. Nai Palm’s vocal styling is unique. Their second album is Choose Your Weapon. http://hiatuskaiyote.com
