Fresh Buzz: DC's Ari Lennox's 'PHO' EP, makes ears turn

People say 2016 is the year women will decide the American elections. DC Native Ari Lennox has the right frame set for this kind of epochal event: “Sometimes women are put in this box where we’re only supposed to talk about certain things,” the 25-year-old singer-songwriter explains. “I want to be braver and riskier. I think people want to hear that kind of honesty and frankness.” Her brand new debut EP marries this lyrical courage with perfectly produced Nu Soul tracks, dominated by her expressive and pliable alto, with influences ranging from R'nB to Hip Hop, Trip Hop and Jazz. Check out our favorite track 'Night Drive,' streaming below. 





Debut Smallhands LP Available for Streaming & Download

Somewhere between a disintegration of ambiance and driven post-rock, Fredericksburg, Virginia's Smallhands produce music that is as sonically dynamic as it is immersive. The group consists of Winston Givler, Kyle Guerra, and Austin O’Rourke, whose collective effort will be making its way to cassette via Tape Modulator as their debut album, How To Say Goodbye. The record is a ground-up, DIY effort, with the songs mixed and mastered by O’Rourke - and it is worth noting that he was the recipient of the 2015 Gold ASCAP Morton Young Composer Award. You can stream and download Smallhands' LP in its entirety below. - Josh Kelly

The Milestones to open for Seratones at DC9, 10/20

Baltimore's premier dance rock outfit The Milestones and one of the South's hottest rock bands, Seratones, are teaming up for what's sure to be a stellar night at DC9 this Thursday, 10/20. If you're familiar, Seratones are a fourpiece coming all the way up from Shreveport, LA, to bring their R&B-infused soulful rock to the nation's capital. Frontlady A.J. Haynes has pipes for crooning and belting out verses that surely reach the heavens. Kicking the night off for Seratones are some of Baltimore's favorite sons, The Milestones. They've been on a tear, playing a ton of shows since the start of the summer and spreading their standout indie-dance vibe for all to enjoy. Show at 8:30, $15 at door. -Jonathan Goodwin

Take a Listen to K A G's Powerful & Compelling Debut EP

K A G is the solo project of Katie Alice Greer, the incisive frontwoman of D.C. post-punk outfit Priests. Her album, EP A, encompasses four tracks that are disposed to lo-fi aesthetics, sonically hovering around industrial and experimental dance tunes. Though the sound is a departure from Greer’s work with Priests, K A G is an exciting batch of material that feels as precarious as it is powerful and compelling. The EP is available in digital formats online and cassettes via Priests’ label Sister Polygon Records. - Josh Kelly
