Irene Diaz navigates lost love on new single "Another Observer"

Irene Diaz returns after a long hiatus with her new single "Another Observer", a cut from her upcoming full-length Lovers & Friends, out later this year.

This slow jam comes with a music video depicting Diaz working through her grief in text message format as she sits in her car overlooking the California dusk. With moody and electronic textures on top of Diaz's rich voice, "Another Observer" is just a taste of what's to come later this year on Lovers & Friends; take a look at the video for the track now. - Will Sisskind

Singer-songwriter Lily Kershaw releases new LP "Arcadia", announces tour dates

Singer-songwriter Lily Kershaw put out Arcadia, her new album and follow-up to 2018's acclaimed EP Lost Angeles, late last year, but this winter she'll tour through Europe and the States to support the release.

Kershaw's tour will take her Amsterdam, Munich, Paris, and London in late January and February; after a short break, she'll visit San Francisco and San Diego before heading out to the East Coast. Take a look at the video for "Always & Forever" below. - Will Sisskind

Alexandra Savior releases transcendental new album "The Archer"

Alexandra Savior has seen many places up and down the West Coast, and all of her experiences have led to the creation of The Archer, her sophomore studio album. Savior delivers her wistful lyrics in a voice and with arrangements that will remind indie fans of Lana Del Rey, with songs incorporating elements that are soft and airy as well as abrasive and thundering in their proclamations. The album focuses on feelings of isolation, as the inspiration came from an unhealthy relationship that Savior didn't realize she was in. The music video for the title track focuses on Super 8-filmed grim scenes of a lighthouse in Port Townsend, WA, which symbolize the mood of being in that relationship at the time. Take a look at the video below, and make sure to check out the rest of Savior's work on The Archer. - Will Sisskind

01.11: Maria Blues supports ska-tinged debut LP at The Concert Lounge

A fourth wave of ska has emerged in full force, and LA is the epicenter from which its waves originate. Among the talented artists creating new music of this style is Maria Blues, who released her debut album Look Who It Is last month. The singer-songwriter fuses reggae, ska, cumbia, and soul together to create tracks that are catchy and emotions. Blues's lyrics switch between English and Spanish and seek to uplift those who don't often feel that they have a voice, especially women. Many of the tracks on Look Who It Is came from the last few years of Blues's career, especially "Rude Monkey", which saw its music video released in 2018. To celebrate Look Who It Is, Blues and her band will play The Concert Lounge in Riverside on January 11th. Go check her out, and take a look now at the music video for "Rude Monkey". - Will Sisskind
