New Songs and Videos
Ashley Myles, "Tides" [Song Premiere]
"Tides" is the anthemic title track from Ashley Myles' upcoming EP, due out March 25. The singer/songwriter explains that the song is "specifically about estrangement and also speaks to the cyclic nature of relationships. We often vow not to repeat the same issues that did not serve us well and yet so often we get stuck in a pattern of doing just that." Tides is produced by Rob Kleiner and profoundly influenced by Myles' background in musical theater/dramatic arts and passion for storytelling.
Tapani Rinne and Juha Mäki-Patola, "Fall" [Song Premiere]
Veteran Finnish musicians Tapani Rinne and Juha Mäki-Patola weave a cohesive meditative thread through ambient, jazz, and neo-classical music on their collaborative album, Open. "Fall" is one of the tracks from the LP, due out March 11 via Hush Hush. "Tapani sent me over his profound and beautiful bass clarinet theme and I was at the same time working for some atmospheric lands and layers with a vivid piano movement and undulating synthesizer pulses," explains Mäki-Patola. "All of these elements smoothly fit together and “Fall” found its place nicely from the album, spotlighting our atmospheric strengths." Pre-order Open here.
Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, "Don't Worry 'Bout What I Do"
Seattle-based soul-jazz group Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio has shared a new single from their upcoming album, Cold As Weiss. "Don't Worry 'Bout What I Do" is the LP's second single, following the previously-shared "Pull Your Pants Up." Cold As Weiss is due out February 11 via Colemine Records. It features Delvon Lamarr on organ, Jimmy James on guitar and marks the debut of Dan Weiss as the trio's drummer. Weiss is also known as the drummer of the powerhouse soul-funk collective The Sextones. Pre-order Cold As Weiss here.
