ARO debuts perilous single "House Of Lies," plays Hotel Cafe 09.26

Aimée Osbourne’s project ARO has released a new single titled “House Of Lies” that tip-toes on the sinister and reveals a soundscape that is a pop, industrial blend so edgy. Osbourne’s vocals crawl to the beat of the track and provide a soft touch to the otherwise sharp clanking sounds that accompany an atmosphere of peril; a dangerous sort of love is evoked through the music. “House Of Lies” is part of Osbourne’s upcoming record Vacare Adamare, set for release October 30th. Aimée Osbourne will be streaming live from Hotel Cafe on September 26th. Stream this synth-heavy track below for a dangerous type of song. - René Cobar

   

LANY belongs in new single "Cowboy in LA"

LANY is finding time for recognition of itself and the environment that surrounds the group in a new chill single titled “Cowboy in LA.” The trio deploys slick electric guitar flourishes and key embellishments beside cool vocals that ride a trot of a beat all the way to a good feeling. The imagery the song paints is vivid: sunny days and good times, smoggy afternoons, and neon-tinted evenings, you take the good with the bad. The journey for LANY has been a long one, but it continues with this release and the group’s upcoming album, mama’s boy, out October 2nd. Stream “Cowboy in LA” and let your mind wander off towards a smoky sun above a known cityscape. - René Cobar

Joni recalls glowing memories in new single "Orange"

Joni Fatora, or simply, Joni offers us a world filled with luminescent memories that peek through a haze of upbeat indie folk in her new single “Orange.” Using elements of synth-pop and folk, Joni recalls her days living in New York City, or rather the feeling those days evoked, how the light of those times glows within her still. “Orange” is the perfect track for nostalgic nights and daydream-filled mornings: the subtle electric guitars, sustained synths, and dreamy vocals of Joni all move like waves to a rhythm sharp and penetrating. The dramatic shift in direction that “Orange” takes during its midsection is as memories that come to life: one day, we remember them one way, and the other another, but all the same, they remain beautiful. Stream Joni’s “Orange” below for something worth remembering. - René Cobar

   

Vita and the Woolf is home at last in new record "Anna Ohio"

Jennifer Pague has found a cozy home in L.A. for her synth-pop project Vita and the Woolf, her new album Anna Ohio chronicling just that mixture of emotions seemingly arising and consuming the city like pastel blue smog. Each track in the new record has a distinct character to it: where a song like “Paris” uses swelling synths and string instruments to dream up fantastic voyages, “Confetti” lets crisp-clean electric guitar leads accompany Pague’s on-target vocals for a song with hints of nostalgia and acceptance. Such emotions are followed up and further explored in  fierce songs like “Home.” Strong beat-driven songs like “Feet” ooze Pague’s confidence as synth flourishes gush flowing colors from the track. You also get songs like “Auntie Anne’s Waitress,” which are light in theme but full and exquisite in composition. Anna Ohio is a story of new and old surroundings, big dreams, and a new rosy way to look at them both; stream “Home” below for a taste of the adventure and the memories. - René Cobar, photo by Erica Snyder
