New Tapes & Tubes LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Tapes & Tubes, a.k.a. Austin Potter, has recently released a retrospective collection of songs entitled Retroactive. Available on cassette and lathe-cut vinyl via UK label Liquid Library, the songs emerge from in between the cracks with their intimately hushed/secretive vocal tones. The album touches on those deep, isolating, pensive states that come to the forefront when returning from sleep or conversely nodding off to slumber.

DAN EDMONDS - "LOVE CAN BE A TUNNEL"

Dan Edmonds is gettin' his solo career going quite nicely since his former band Harlen Pepper decided to go their separate ways. His debut solo album "Ladies on the Corner" will be released on October 7th via Missed Connection Records and Edmonds has dropped a video for the lead single. "Love Can Be A Tunnel" has a laid back folk rock feel with a cool chord progression and hypnotic vocal melodies. The song is about some ladies on the corner that he would talk to before heading into the studio in downtown Hamilton. The song shows there are different tunnels of love with the first verse being rather dark and the second becoming more positive. The video was directed by Taylor Heres. He'll be at The Dakota Tavern on October 7th before heading on a tour to Western Canada. - Kris Gies

Beccs celebrates release of 'Unfound Beauty' at Mercury on 09.25

NYC based singer songwriter Beccs may hail from Boston, but she sure strikes a very Manhattan chord with her first official video for single 'Therapy" (streaming below). Dripping with orchestral and even operaic character, this is a soulful song about the damage created by the duplicity of human impulses, written after a long period of healing, which - unsurprisingly - ended up bringing Beccs a period of intense artistic inspiration. 'Therapy' will be featured in the artist's upcoming album Unfound Beauty (out on September 21st), whose release will be celebrated at the Mercury Lounge on September 25th..
