Bay Windows gifts an intimate experience in new record "Dance A Little Closer"

Bedroom pop generally gestates in the mind of the artist in such a way that when upon listening to its soundscapes, the listener becomes engrossed in the same intimacy of its creation. The easy-listening music found in Dylan Jockel's (Bay Windows) new record Dance A Little Closer is a perfect example of this occurrence: relaxed electric guitar riffs, warm basslines, and reverb-robust vocals all stir within the mind of the listener and elicit memories. In tracks like "Older," those breezy sounds raise the dainty particles of cognizance to produce elation or sadness, whatever you prefer. The Avon, Connecticut artist slows down the minutes with buttery tracks like "On My Way," and thus allows for full immersion into his lo-fi production of tranquil music. In the intimacy of his songs, naturally curious listeners can find whatever they wish, and that is the mark of great bedroom music. The smooth sounds of Bay Windows should be keeping New Englanders warm this fall/winter; we are excited about shows upcoming. You may stream the endorphin-triggering title-track from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

Phantasmosis supplies sweet escapism in new record "Sentimental"

Earlier this month Providence’s Phantasmosis (Sam D'Orazio) released Sentimental, his latest fantastical record. The album supplies the right dose of sweet escapism with psych-surfy ballads like “Heaven/Hell” and power pop tracks like “Green Eyes” offering variety throughout the journey. Phantasmosis lathers each track with intent: if indie-rock is the theme, the guitars will rip; if jazzy elements are in order, the saxophone will produce a buttery smooth solo—there is no subtlety, and that is great. Phantasmosis’ music has the appeal of Beach Boys and the eccentricity of Flaming Lips, he serves that shake in his unique manner, and it is rich. The new release should keep him occupied for the fall, and we are looking forward to new show announcements soon. We are streaming the entrancing track “Do You Feel It???” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar





Samuel Sandoval welcomes reflection in new record "Current Pretender"

Samuel Sandoval’s new full-length record, Current Pretender, is a sonic stained-glass window into the colorful mind of a young man wrestling and dancing with existentialism. The anthology is track after track of therapeutic acoustic guitar-led confessions and realizations: tracks like “I Mime” tip-toe instrumentally among bizarre ambient sounds and Sandoval's layered-pensive vocals. As esoteric as some tracks can be, others like “Falling Asleep to Your Parents Watching TV Pt. 1” are gorgeously composed, with honey-sweet piano melodies and soothing flowing-water samples creating a cave of wondrous sounds. Much like life itself, Connecticut resident Samuel Sandoval’s record encompasses beauty, ugliness, weirdness, love, hope, and existence as you want to see it. We are streaming the indie-folk tune “Madam Day” from the new album below. - Rene Cobar





Maya Lucia is splendidly assertive in new record "Lashing Out"

Darting in and out of Boston, Maya Lucia has managed to create a significant buzz in New England for her now-released EP, Lashing Out. The record is rebellious indie-pop, it is soft rock with a touch of lo-fi, it is alternative: the album is Maya Lucia, and that says it all. Tracks like “Jolene” are heartfelt, confidently presented, and punchy in their bass guitar plucks. Maya is explosive in the choruses of “Misunderstood” and playful-assertive in the verses of “Sadgirl (RIP Moviepass),” showing her ability to tell an honest story in each song. There is no reason to doubt that Maya can hang with the likes of indie-pop rising stars like Clairo and Charli XCX: the young artist offers something wholly different, something more attitude-fueled. Listen to “Jolene” streaming below; discover what the buzz is all about. - Rene Cobar
