Into the Wild
by Zola Jesus
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

Says the singer-songwriter, aka Nika Roza Danilova, "Into The Wild was written about the end of a relationship, and what seemed like the end of a former life. It was such an overwhelming, tumultuous time of my life; every step into the future felt like walking into the great unknown. My anxiety was at an all-time high, and getting through each day felt like a nearly impossible task. Songwriting was the only way to feel grounded in what I was experiencing. "This song in particular became a beacon for me. I’m so grateful to have music as an outlet to help me navigate difficult periods, and hopefully those listening to this will also feel a deeper sense of stability through their own big changes.”

by SZA
(64 plays) | (0 fans)

The entire world seems to be waiting with baited breath for the release of SZA's second album. Solana Imani Rowe, an LA-based singer and songwriter and first female signee to hip-hop label Top Dawg Entertainment, won universal acclaim with her debut studio album CTRL in 2017. An intensely personal release, SZA's lyrics revolve around themes of sexuality, nostalgia and abandonment - while musical threads of alternative R&B, soul, hip-hop and indie rock appear throughout the record.

All the Good Times
by Angel Olsen
(22 plays) | (0 fans)

NEW MUSIC from Angel Olsen! Angel Olsen will be joining Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker on The Wild Hearts Tour, playing Marymoor Park on Wednesday, August 3. https://bit.ly/3xjLg6t A press release describes the album as being "written during the time Olsen was coming out as queer, and having her first experience of queer love and heartbreak." At the same time, she finally came out to her parents. "Some experiences just make you feel as though you’re five years old, no matter how wise or adult you think you are," she said. "Finally, at the ripe age of 34, I was free to be me." Only days later, Olsen’s father died, and she introduced her partner to her family for the first time at his funeral. Two weeks later, her mother ended up in the ER, and Olsen soon lost another parent. Only a few weeks after that second funeral, Olsen went into the studio to make 'Big Time,' joined by Jonathan Wilson. https://angelolsen.bandcamp.com/

Behind The Sun
(33 plays) | (0 fans)

After the release of ODESZA's latest single from their fourth album, one thing has never been more clear: they won't settle for the ordinary. "Behind The Sun" samples a song recorded by Simin Ghanem, an Iranian classicial singer born in 1944. Ghanem's Persian chants bellow through ODESZA's spellbinding soundscapes, which slither through the arrangement with tinctures of lo-fi. The duo eventually drop a dark, booming chorus replete with their signature drums and a thunderous low end. https://bit.ly/37GETj7 Bellingham natives ODESZA, who will perform at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle on July 29, July 30, and July 31!

This track is a collaboration with Romy of the xx and London-based electronic artist Haai.

“This is a track I made with one of my dearest friends Jon Hopkins," said HAAi regarding 'Baby, We're Ascending.' "I’d been working on this particular track alone for a while and got stuck with it – I posted a clip on my Instagram one morning and Jon messaged me asking what it was and could we work on it together.” https://bit.ly/3yzUY54 HAAi will release her first studio album on May 27th. https://haai.bandcamp.com/album/baby-we-re-ascending
