frogi makes a blissful plea on new single, "Time"

"Time," the new single by singer/songwriter frogi, begins slow and steady. "Baby let's just give it time," she beckons, a song she wrote during a period of emotional relationship turmoil. She uses nothing more than her soft, enrapturing voice, hitting each note with striking precision over a droning ambient backdrop until she builds things up to a soaring finish. Her denouement is simple, yet sublime, letting us in into her most vulnerable state with a freeing sense of resolution.

Listen to "Time," alongside frogi's debut single, "peace of mind," via her official Soundcloud page. - Juan Rodríguez

Rey Villalobos begins anew on new single, "Breathe"

For close to a decade, Rey Villalobos wrote three albums of atmospheric psychedelia and indie-folk under his moniker House of Wolves. But for the Ojai, California native, a change of pace was necessary. There's something both familiar and new about "Breathe," switching to his birth name as a solo artist—his ominous new single blends a downtempo backbeat and swaying, oscillating guitars, using natural elements to describe a sense of escape. He incorporates an acoustic flourish on the song's bridge, later to demolish it, perhaps a clever guise to remind us that he's respecting the old and welcoming the new.

"Breathe" is the first single from Rey's forthcoming EP, due out later this summer. - Juan Rodríguez
