Nashville’s Leagues has just released a free maxi-single for the track Spotlight (which you might’ve heard on WFPK). The song does a great job of capturing the intense energy of the band’s live performance.
Speaking of which, Leagues is playing at the Fest-a-Ville on April 30 alongside the Same Roberts Band. So you’ll have a chance to find out for yourself just how crazy Thad Cockrell and the gang can be.
If Shara Worden recorded nothing but her voice, that would be enough. It’s powerful, vulnerable, flexible and downright beautiful. But she’s also blessed the world with three albums, as My Brightest Diamond, that pair her pipes with experimental-pop music that often defies easy categorization.
Worden has just released a six-song compilation, Until Now, that traces her entire career as My Brightest Diamond. It’s currently available for free via NoiseTrade.
Based on her new single Taking Chances, it sounds like Sharon Van Etten is doing just that – she’s taking a few chances musically when compared to her past output. That’s not a bad thing, but it certainly is an interesting thing considering the polished nature of the track.
Since it’s the first taste of her upcoming Are We There LP, there’s a good chance it is indeed indicative of a new direction. We’ll see on May 27, when the record drops via Jagjaguwar.
You might need to listen closely to the intro of Shelter Song by Temples, lest you think you’ve accidentally pressed play on Donovan’s Sunshine Superman. That’s not a criticism of the track, by the way. Quite the contrary. Shelter Song takes the best parts of mid period psychedelia and wraps them around some solid songwriting.

You’ve no doubt heard us playing the title track to Lake Street Dive’s latest album, Bad Self Portraits, on the air the last few weeks. Well now the album is finally out, and the band is offering the song for download to celebrate! On top of that, the band is coming to The New Vintage on March 3.
