New Music To Know This Week: Wes Reeve Has No Worries, LADAMA Came To...

Reeve is on a very ambitious journey in 2020, to release one new song per week. This one is a highlight, written during her self-quarantine as a little spot of encouragement to herself when she was feeling uncreative and stuck in fatigue. It's a jaunty ditty that will make you tap a toe and push…

Helen Ballentine, the singer/songwriter who is Skullcrusher, is creating a study in subtle, tiny moments. That's the theme of her songwriting, but it's also an apt description for her sound. Obviously, that means playing acoustically, but it also means asking existential questions about life and the decisions we make in it and how those decisions…

The dreamy, slow-paced vibe of this song from San Francisco's Stone matches my work from home aesthetic so perfectly. I love her lilting voice, which soars on the chorus and the slow, shuffling drumbeat that's holding the whole production together. Goodbye, if you need me you can find me in dreamland.

Yes, this week's column will be full of songs about breakups and realizations we have when relationships are over, thanks for asking. Toronto's Alannah Kavanagh slid into my inbox with a song about the kind of longing for closure, rekindling, and recapturing that feeling you had in a relationship that is as raw as they come,…

There's something so cleansing about the desert, isn't there? It's like going to a clean slate place, where magic could just happen and you have to fight to stay alive, you being made of 60% water. Press play, and take a mystical vocal ride through a place of great danger and allure.
