All Things Blue - Chad.

LA-based dream-punk band All Things Blue are sharing new single “Chad”. Led by frontwoman India Coombs (or simply, Blue) and collaborator Jon Joseph, All Things Blue traverse genres and sounds; one moment flirting with abrasive garage-punk, the next – soaring psych-pop – with “Chad” sitting somewhere between the spirited psychedelia of Melody’s Echo Chamber and the exhilarating alt-pop of St Vincent.

Speaking about the track, singer India said: “See-saws are fun until you're riding an emotional see-saw; when you want someone that doesn't want you, but makes sure to keep you around. Sometimes you only realise in retrospect; that person was just a Chad. Also during the whole vocal take I was holding Jon's week old baby boy which is why I laugh at the end cause he fell asleep.”

“Chad” is lifted from All Things Blue’s forthcoming debut full length album, due for release later this year. Covering everything from pensive love songs to directly addressing social issues and political ironies; India herself compares the album to Gabriel Garcia Márquez’s ever-relevant novel Love In The Time of Cholera. Indeed, the the band's new material promises love, however ethereal it may seem, at the end of a very dark tunnel, if not somewhere along the way.

India and Jon originally met in LA at the age of 18, having both independently moved to the city; Coombs driving across the country in her broken down pickup truck from Philadelphia, and Jon hailing from further south in California. The pair wasted no time becoming friends and firing out an eclectic assortment of demos. They did so namelessly for some time, but eventually settled on "All Things Blue”.

The name itself was coined by India's late mother, who, when India was having trouble getting by in the rough and overpriced world that is Los Angeles, told her that she was just feeling blue and sometimes all things are blue for a bit but they'll get better.


Deidre Thornell - Keep On Loving Me.

In April of 2020, Deidre released her newest single “Keep On Loving Me” and on May 11th a video featuring an acoustic version of the song premiered on YouTube.

Deidre Thornell is a rising Country starlet. Her first big success came in 2013 when she was one of five finalists in the 2013 Texaco Country Showdown, leading to a performance on the stage of the infamous Ryman Auditorium, which aired on Great American Country Television.

Cuddle Magic - Working On Me.

Cuddle Magic—the New York / Philadelphia-based chamber-pop sextet—today shared a new single, “Working On Me,” packaged in a short EP alongside the previously released “What If I” and new track “Still In Touch.” Their upcoming full-length Bath is due July 3rd on Northern Spy Records.

“Working On Me” is a tender ode to self-improvement propelled by Kristin Slipp’s emotive vocals. Slipp, who has also been a member of Dirty Projectors since 2018, humbly requests patience from her partner in this delicate earworm. In her own words, Slipp explains the songs content:

"So much of what I've written in the past three years has referred either indirectly or, in this case, very literally, to my pursuit of self-improvement. 'Working On Me' is a tender request for patience from a partner or a friend. The spare arrangement conveys hope, which reaches a fever pitch by the final chorus when the whole band joins in.”
