New Track: "Down Your Street" - RFA

The quartet of RFA is slated to release its self-titled debut album on April 6. Recorded at Miner Street Recordings, it’s latest single, “Down Your Street,” balances the bass bumping at the door with the silky thread of guitar underneath. Caught in the circular trap of reflecting in the midst of moving on, a sweet sadness results. RFA will be holding its record release celebration on Saturday, April 7 at PhilaMOCA, supported by Secret American and Del Water Gap.

Anna/Kate Band release debut LP "How To Hold" at La Mama on 03/23

The debut album from NYC duo Anna/Kate Band, called How To Hold, is set to drop on March 23rd at the Downstairs Theater at La Mama in the East Village. Anna Gothard and Kate Foster have compiled nine of their songs into an album of queer folk-pop anthems with gripping harmonies, all of them recorded over six months in Ingrid Michaelson's revered Grand Street Recording Studio. Both Anna and Kate are trained in the art of jazz singing, which can be heard in the soulful delivery of their stories. They have already released two singles from How To Hold: "I Run With You" has received plenty of traffic on Spotify in both the US and the UK, and "Even Over Odd" has grabbed the attention of Fordham University's radio station, which called them an "Act To Watch" this year. Stream the Anna/Kate Band's latest single from How To Hold, called "Shipwrecked (In My Motel Room)", below. - Will Sisskind

From the digital submissions: Katie Ekin's dreamy folk track "Little Moon"

It’s rare that an artist sheds new light on a phrase as overused as “less is more,” but that’s exactly the feat that Santa Cruz singer-songwriter Katie Ekin accomplishes on her newest single “Little Moon” (streaming below), which is set to be included on a forthcoming EP. This simple track gives her dreamy harmonies room to shine, while also showcasing the power of a stripped-down sound. She is currently finishing up a string of local shows, with a performance on the 23rd at the NexTies Awards and another on the 24th at Aroma Cellars. - Lilly Milman
