A Deli Premiere: "A Step Back from the Wrong Direction" by Josh Knowles

Boston’s Josh Knowles gives sound to a time filled with tragedies, abysmal confusion, and above all else, profound hope for a better world. In his new record, A Step Back from the Wrong Direction, Josh uses his skills with an electric violin to craft evocative string music that stimulates the heart and mind with each swell and beautiful cadence. “A Step Back from the Wrong Direction: II” is a prime example of the ambiances the music immerses the listener in, cautious, almost as if stepping stealthily, the song creates a sense of peril that is both grave and familiarly comfortable. “A Step Back from the Wrong Direction: IV” seems more cheery, almost like the calm after a raging storm, back and forth the sounds rise like sea spume so majestic. Overall, Josh Knowles offers New England the kind of music that makes the most sense today: a type of music meant for contemplation, discovery, and healing. We are thrilled to premiere the record for you below; your weekend will be the better for it. - Rene Cobar

Satellite Mode softly examine the states on "Dream, American," new lP out 7.17

Your guess is as good as the next person’s in terms of whether the American Dream is still a tenable prospect in 2020 — though NYC synthpop duo Satellite Mode’s new video “Dream, American” provides a hazy meditation on what America means, exactly. Home movie visuals and dreamlike arpeggios underscore uncomfortable axioms, how we’re “all longing [for] that good American green,” how antiquated conceptualizations of comfort like “milk money” seem odd by contemporary standards, and how it might be better to set aside old visions and just “let it burn.” During a time when ideas of national identity and success seem increasingly more outdated and convoluted,Satellite Mode’s evenhanded, electronic approach feels centering, a soft-spoken critique for our shitshow year. Watch it below, and stream their new EP Robots vs Party Girls, out today.
