Alex Lahey at The Independent

Last week Alex Lahey came out to The Independent last week and it was just the show we were hoping for. Lahey’s got an approachable and fun energy. Her songs are youthful rock n’ roll with some feels like that early 2000’s rock but with messages that are more current. There’s something empowering and solid about the music and their delivery. The crowd bumping and jumping along to songs like “Am I Doing it Right?” Lahey is on tour now and we suggest fans of power pop fun go check her out while she’s around these parts. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Soulful singer-songwriter Zsela tours with Cat Power, plays Baby's All Right 09.16

With her strong, soulful voice and evocative, jazzy songs, Zsela stands out in the crowded scene of NYC songwriters. Her delicate debut track Noise (whose video we are streaming below) presents us with a sparse ballad full of poetry, led by vocals reminiscent of a more soulful Joni Mitchell from her early records. The lyrics tell a heart-wrenching story of the little things left behind after a failed love affair, leaving the listener with a sense of failed intimacy and emotional struggle Zsela evokes both through her lyrics and her vocal delivery. The Brooklyn native is currently on tour in North America with indie rock singer-songwriter Cat Power, stopping in New York, Canada, and Western America over the span of three months. See her live at Baby's All Right on September 16. - Karigan Wright

 

New Track: "Housefly" - Cheeky

“Housefly” is the new single from Cheeky, a.k.a. Kaylee Sabatino. A ghostly, ominous, electro-percussive suspense lingers in the bare atmosphere - one that is reinforced by the isolated chill of the vocals and the wind-blowing, veiled, noir minimalism of the video. Looking back on what once was, the narrator appears to be in a period of change/transition. Cheeky is slated to take part in Ellen Siberian Tiger’s Halloween Bash, at Underground Arts on Thiursday, October 24, which also features Rana Ransom and Soul Cannon.

Micro "Head 2 Toe"

This is Micro’s third EP of 2019 and she is a part of a collective/label called Flower Witch.

Young Clancy - Eclectic Soul Infused Single "Level"

Young Clancy has a new explorative EP due out soon titled “Volume II”. The latest single from this upcoming EP titled “Level” is inspired from 70’s soul music. This tune definitely has some soul influences to it along with a more modern electronic hip hop production. The chorus is so smooth and certainly full of soul.  The track as a whole is very eclectic. “Volume II” is available on October 4th. – Kris Gies
