Within - "Young" EP and Music Video

Within is an alt/indie folk trio out of Toronto. Or “freak folk” as they say. They play dark, stripped down folk tunes. Definitely leaving plenty of space on the canvas which is a pleasant change to what we are probably used to hearing on a regular basis. The vocalist is rather enchanting with a trippiness to her voice that reminds me of Grace Slick or Dolores O’Riordan. They recently released an EP “Young” and below is the title track first single. – Kris Gies





Will Dailey brings introspective folk to Bath Heritage Fest in Maine (6.30)

Boston singer-songwriter Will Dailey makes the type of introspective, feel-good folk that sticks in your thoughts. The single “It Already Would Have Not Worked Out By Now” (streaming below) off of his most recent album Golden Walker, released June 1, only further proves his ability to stay relevant as a songwriter. The melodic track is reminiscent of Vance Joy in style, but with a baroque build that is undeniably that of Will Dailey. Fresh off a string of local Boston shows, Dailey is now on his way to play the Bath Heritage Festival in Bath, Maine on June 30. After that, he will be hitting Nextival in Crownsville, Maryland on July 14. - Lilly Milman





Record of the Month: Renata Zeiguer "Old Ghost" - release party at Elsewhere 06.20

On first listen, the songs and sounds of Renata Zeiguer’s debut album Old Ghost are deceivingly simple. Indie rock influences clash with her delicate voice in interesting if not straightforward ways. Yet there’s an appealing aspect of Old Ghost that continues to draw the listener in as she paints an image of the world that is filled with naturally occurring voids that are at once brutal and beautiful. Her voice feels equally morose and triumphant as she explores themes of identity and loss. Nature also plays a large role in the Zeiguer’s lyrics; cosmic elements of our world like the moon and the mundane creatures who inhabit it both haunt and captivate the singer. These poetic lyrics burrow themselves in her ethereal voice and unfold in expansive and cathartic moments as the production swerves from angular to harmonious. Old Ghost is an album that burns softly if heard in the background but illuminates brightly when it is lived with. The entire record can be streamed below and you can hear Zeiguer perform at Elsewhere on June 20. - Tucker Pennington





The Soft, Sad World of Gillian Frances

When listening to Gillian Frances’ debut EP Born Yesterday, the soft, ambient acoustics wash over you gently like waves. It’s not hard to be lulled to sleep by Frances’ gentle vocals, as she plaintively croons her poetic lyrics. Her voice is ethereal and tinged with a uniquely biting sweetness and her lyrics display a distinct worldview. Born Yesterday gives the audience a glimpse into a motionless world filled with the sort of nostalgia associated with forgotten memories and lost things. The EP is both mournful for the past and hopeful for the future. At times her music sounds eerily familiar, hinting at inspiration from acts such as Neutral Milk Hotel. It’s an impressive first release which was recently reissued on Good Cherry Records.

Fresh Buzz: Triathalon plays Brooklyn Steel on June 18th

In this new age of bedroom pop and DIY everything, Georgia's band Triathalon, who recently resettled in NYC, offers a sound all its own, blending elements as varied as soul, pop, jazz, and electro. Attempting to label their music proves challenging - and that's part of the plan, since they state that they "work towards a sound that can’t easily be defined.” Thriathalon's first two EP sounded like rather unfocused takes on anything within the indie realm, from dream pop to slacker rock. Third LP Online, released earlier in 2018, sounds like music made by a different band altogether: the production is more mature, the sound more focused, and a newfound passion for soul seems to have shuffled the band's sonic cards. “Hard to Move” is reminiscent of a lo-fi, synthed version of Michael Jackson’s “Blame it on the Boogie,” while “3” is backed with a thumping bass verse that cleverly transitions to a jazz-inspired keyboard interlude. This is a band with lots of potential, check them out live on June 18th at  Brooklyn Steel. - Lily Crandall
