Mother Yeti – ‘My Best Please’

Mother Yeti are as elusive as the Himalayan Cryptid for whom they are named. First spotted in the Pacific Northwest circa 2012, their numbers have varied between two to as many as five members over the years. Their latest single, ‘My Best Please’, has a sound as hard to pin down as the band themselves, and ranges between punk, psych rock, and RnB. One thing we know for sure however – we love it.

Lucy And The Night Sky Releases Second Album ‘Light Needs the Dark’

They say never judge a book by its cover, and likewise never judge a band by its name, but when you hear a name like ‘Lucy And The Night Sky’, the curiosity is piqued, and you get more than a suspicion that this is going to be a band who produces interesting music.

Lauren Crosby – ‘You Don’t Need A Rose’

Taken from her upcoming sophomore album, ‘I Said Take Me To The Water’, which is set for release on May 31, Lauren Crosby’s ‘You Don’t Need A Rose’ is a refreshing blend of blues and folk, with some pop and singer-songwriter sensibilities. Think Loretta Lynn crossed with Taylor Swift, with a dash of Muddy Waters.

Sami Chohfi Releases Folkie New Single ‘It’s Just Me’ Away From Blue Helix

If you’ve heard the name Sami Chohfi, it’s probably been in association with his band, Blue Helix, known in the Pacific Northwest for their melodic hard rock songs, such as ‘Anti-Social Butterfly’. But ‘It’s Just Me’, the debut solo single from Chohfi, is anything but hard rock – it’s just Sami, his acoustic guitar, and quiet, reflective vocals.

Liz Kennedy – ‘Hike Up Your Socks’

We last caught up with San Francisco based singer songwriter Liz Kennedy this time last year, with the release of her track, ‘Everyone Knows How It Goes’. Now she’s hiking up her socks in a love letter to San Francisco – in particular Telegraph Hill, historic North Beach, and the steep and spectacular slopes that say so much about the city. She presents herself as a woman who is more than just enchanted by her community and surroundings, she is also deeply invested in her neighbourhood, with the message of her song clearly saying, “a life well lived is one that’s deeply rooted in the local community”.

Swimming Bell – ‘1988’

Swimming Bell is the project of Katie Schottland. The Brooklyn-based folk singer broke her foot in 2015, and her imposed inactivity led her to write music. She writes by ear, having no formal musical training, and learned some basic chords from a chord sheet she printed out in order to work out how to play Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon’. From these gentle beginnings, she launched her debut EP, ‘The Golden Heart’, in October 2017, which was met with critical acclaim.
