Jesse Jo Stark just released her new single and video, "modern love", (from her forthcoming album, "DOOMED") and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

"modern love" was started in LA with Matt Schwartz, inspired by all the parties I had to go to that week. LA can be so beautiful and bright, but also has a dark side which added to the song. Sometimes I feel allergic to the environment I find myself in. When we were writing this song, we were visualizing racing down the highway on the hunt for something real. (continue)

We finished writing Plagued in January 2020, so it's great to finally share it with our fans.

The cover was co-produced by Rita and Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Rollings (Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett).

NYC post-punk outfit Love Crushed Velvet are releasing their new album, "Souls and the Barren Heart," this Friday (June 24th), and to celebrate we asked frontman and songwriter A.L.X. to tell us about the single, "The Future". Here is the story:

While we were in the midst of pre-production for the "Souls..." album, producer David Maurice played me a hook that he'd written sometime earlier which he thought I might be able to do something with. It was a clever, catchy riff that I took home with me and began to build a full song around--which ended up turning into "The Future". At the time, I was in a relationship that had an amorphous, 'on again, off again' quality to it, and some of the lyrics were influenced by that experience--although the song in general is about the underlying escapist urges that new relationships often bring about...and the futility of building foundational expectations around those kind of urges.
