Spooky Mansion: "The One Who Was a Real Jerk"

I found myself singing along to the chorus the very first time I listened to Spooky Mansion's “Real Jerk," the new single from the Bay Area transplants who have found asylum in L.A. For the video's release, the soulful garage-rock five-piece partnered with French artist Bleu Garou, pairing intricate and comical cartoons with a story of misplaced feelings in a world filled with irrational choices. “Misunderstood/ What we meant when we said taking a break, I thought we could be free,” vocalist Grayson Converse sings, which sounds like a sentence taken straight from the Friends episode “The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break."

Spooky Mansion releases their debut album, That’s Me! on October 28th, so stay tuned. Kayla Hay

On "Bess's Dance," Itasca goes on a creative retreat

It'd been three years since Kayla Cohen (a.k.a Itasca) released 2016's Open to Chance, a sublime offering where the singer-songwriter sought to connect with the nature, and beings, that surrounds her with finger-picked acoustic melodies and lilting country ballads. There was a good reason for her absence—wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of L.A., Cohen went on a six-month creative retreat to rural New Mexico in hopes of finding something new and meaningful. One of her findings is documented on her new single, "Bess's Dance," a gentle jazz-folk fusion that conjures images of her days living in an old adobe house. 

"Bess's Dance" is the first reveal off Itasca's fourth LP, Spring, which is due out on November 1 via Paradise of Bachelors. Juan Rodríguez
