CD Release: The Dø

Are you familiar with The Dø? They’re an incredible French/Finnish duo (Olivia Merilahti & Dan Levy) that conjure up an unlikely blend of indie rock, folk, dance, and mid-20th century pop. Their second album, Both Ways Open Jaws is out now.

The Dø have already captured a global audience with their acclaimed second album and its unique approach to beautiful "avant pop" sounds. Now some of the most interesting electronic producers from around the world have put their own unique sonic stamp on the Dø's music. The Both Ways Open Jaws Remix EP which is out NOW features fascinating new mixes from Trentemoller, Vitalic, Mylo, Sei A, and Fever Ray's C-Berg. Check out this breathtaking video for their latest single, “Gonna Be Sick!” It is a stunning piece both visually and musically in which Olivia (the heartbroken heroine) sets sail on a stormy sea of silk to create an epic look that takes its cues from Fellini’s Casanova, Shakespeare’s Tempest – and also homages the silent era.
 

New Single: Letterist

* GRAB THE FREE DOWNLOAD OF “1OOMPH”

New York City is filled with hundreds of bands, but it takes true talent for a group to stand out amongst the rest. Meet LETTERIST, the infectious trio hailing from the streets of Brooklyn, New York. Just debuting their first single titled, “100mph,” LETTERIST will quickly draw you in with their catchy brand of indie-meets -electro pop-sound.

Be prepared to make this track one of your favorite songs of the year....already. Singer Pamela Bell’s voice echoes throughout the track, making it both haunting and gorgeous. Echoing guitars and heavy beats fill every inch of space with perfection, carrying the song to new heights. Blending a bit of dancefloor nostalgia, this is one piece that will make your jaw drop.

Forming in 2006, during a chance meeting on a night that can only be referred to as “a drunken underwear Twister-themed party,” Rammy Yogendra (Guitar, Synth, Piano), met Pamela Bell (Vocals), and Alex McCown (Drums) and the three hit it off immediately. Coming together from Minnesota, Missouri and Florida respectively, the trio found a common ground in New York City, which they have been calling home for several years. Playing at countless area venues and late-night rooftop gatherings, LETTERIST gained notoriety from their performances at the now-infamous BangOn!NYC Parties.

CD Release: TriBeCaStan's New Deli Breaks the Time/Space Continuum in New Deli (Feb 7)

From a media release: New Release from Little Known Government of TriBeCaStan : Capital New Deli Found to Have Irregular Time-Space Continuum EverGreene Music - February 7, 2012 TriBeCaStan: News Alert. This morning Aljazzeera reported that the questionable nation of TriBeCaStan ( www.tribecastan.tv ) has made scientific breakthroughs in time travel.

The breakthrough is outlined in an auditory compendium titled New Deli (distributed by the state-run EverGreene Music, set for release February 7, 2012 ), a recording that allows the world to experience a type of soulful networking mor

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020) New York City based singer and songwriter Shihori's new single Soul Trip is atmospheric and ambient. Interesting rhythms and interwoven melodic vocal lines showcase jazzy harmonic progressions in a slow groove mode.  As a songwriter, she uses electronic effects with impeccable musical taste. As a singer, her flexible vocals range from a sweet soprano to a strong mid-range. A veteran of the Japanese pop scene, Shihori moved to New York City in 2018, a move she talks about in a media release. "I was so surprised when I came to NY for the first time. Independent and strong women are respected and there are lots of different preferences in music and style. I thought, 'oh my God! This place really accepts uniqueness and freedom! I didn't know there is a place like this totally different world that allows you to be yourself. Everybody looks so different. So many races, colors, cultures, fashion, ideas...I am so
