Suki Waterhouse has announced her upcoming full-length debut album, I Can’t Let Go, will be released Friday, April 22nd via Sub Pop Records. Additionally, she has released a brand-new single from the album, “Melrose Meltdown,” accompanied by a stylized and gorgeous music video directed by Sofia Malamute. Both “Melrose Meltdown” and I Can’t Let Go are produced by Grammy-Nominated Producer & Songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, War On Drugs, Snail Mail, Waxahatchee).

“Melrose Meltdown” puts Suki’s evocative vocals on display and features her signature style of singing in haunting refrains. Suki welcomes listeners into her Melrose Meltdown where “nobody ever breaks up, we just break down.” The music video highlights the beautiful loneliness Suki croons about by showcasing her dancing solo in fragmented light. Later in the video, Suki is seen singing to the camera in the back of a pickup truck with palm trees overhead, cruising down what we can only assume must be Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.

Today Psychic Hotline, the artist-forward record label founded by Sylvan Esso, releases the next installment of their singles series: “Do You See The Light Around Me?” by Uwade and produced by Brad Cook (Snail Mail, Waxahatchee, Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger).

The Nigerian-born and North Carolina-raised Uwade released her debut 7-inch “The Man Who Sees Tomorrow”/ Lodarore”  last year while finishing undergrad at Columbia University, and now shares her latest offering through the Psychic Hotline series, as she continues her education at Oxford University, where she is getting her masters.

“Having a crush is thrilling and torturous. And I think my experience in this song highlights both of these aspects. Our reactions and responses to “liking” someone are intensely personal and individual, often informed by our own insecurities, needs, and fears. When I look at someone I like, whether I want to be with them or want to be like them, I project desirable qualities and traits onto them and, for better or worse, make them the standard by which I measure myself. I see them and want to know what they see when they look at me. I question myself and they hold the answer. This can be great if feelings are mutual, but agonizing if they’re not.

But there’s a pivotal moment in the song that I think is really important. As much as this song is other focused, primarily on the person I admire, in the bridge I’m sort of able to escape the trap that I set for myself. I imagine what it would be like to disappear into a kind of spiritual cloister. To pose all the questions that I’ve been asking my crush to myself.

To seek answers from within, or at least from an immutable source. And to be satisfied in all that I am, all that I have been, and all that I can be. Once I’ve done this, I think the song becomes one of mutual joy and ecstasy. There is still a desire for the other person, but I finally and fully see myself, and all I’m doing is asking them to join me.

I wrote and recorded the demo of DYSTLAM? in a three day fever during my last semester of college. When I heard about the Singles Series I knew this would be the song for it. I went to the incredible Brad Cook with my finished demo, and instead of just trying to replicate what I had already recorded, we went back to the basics and rebuilt the track. We experimented with sounds, instruments, tempos, and structure, trying to capture the essential feeling of the song and represent that as fully as we could. He was super kind and collaborative, and he encouraged me to have fun in the studio and explore all the places the song could go both sonically and emotionally. The end result is a beautiful union of all the iterations of the track, and an invitation to the audience to find themselves in it.” – Uwade

Suki Waterhouse has released a brand-new single, “Moves” which comes with a visually stunning video directed by Cameron McCool. The track is the first to be released off her forthcoming full-length album, due out in 2022 via Sub Pop. “Moves” is Executive Produced by Grammy-Nominated Producer & Songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, War On Drugs, Snail Mail, Waxahatchee).

“Moves” is a song I first started writing one night on the couch, picking up the guitar and seeing what came out,” writes Suki. “It was a moment where I felt the urge to both sever a bond of connection with somebody and yet at the same time pursue and put my trust back in love.” @sukiwaterhouse.tv

Snail Mail

Today, Snail Mail (Lindsey Jordan) announces Valentine, her new album out November 5th via Matador. To mark the occasion, she has released the title track, “Valentine,” and its outrageous period drama companion video directed by Josh Coll.

“I wanted to take as much time as possible with this record to make sure I was happy with every detail before unleashing it unto y’all,” says Jordan. “Referring to the process as the deepest level of catharsis and therapy I have ever experienced would be a huge understatement. Valentine is my child!”

A hugely anticipated follow-up, Valentine was written and produced by 22-year-old Lindsey Jordan and co-produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee). Written in 2019-2020 the album is filled with romance, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears. But Valentine is poised and self-possessed, channelling its anger and dejection into empowering revenge fantasies and rewriting the narrative of its own fate. Stitched throughout it is the melodrama and the camp Jordan so deftly utilizes to offset her pain. The sonic leap forward can be heard from the first moments of the title track – the whispered voice and eerie sci-fi synths erupting into a full-on stadium-sized adrenaline-rush of a chorus. From there it’s all go – with digitized electronic inflected anthems, swooning baroque FM rockers, smoldering slow-jam R&B and some of the most gorgeous and heart-rending finger-picked guitar ballads this side of Elliott Smith. The star of the show however is Lindsey’s voice – no longer the prodigal wunderkind, her vocals and words are rawer, deeper, snarlier and more feeling than ever before.  Snail Mail has also announced a worldwide tour including US runs both in the fall of 2021 and the spring of 2022
