Rey Villalobos begins anew on new single, "Breathe"

For close to a decade, Rey Villalobos wrote three albums of atmospheric psychedelia and indie-folk under his moniker House of Wolves. But for the Ojai, California native, a change of pace was necessary. There's something both familiar and new about "Breathe," switching to his birth name as a solo artist—his ominous new single blends a downtempo backbeat and swaying, oscillating guitars, using natural elements to describe a sense of escape. He incorporates an acoustic flourish on the song's bridge, later to demolish it, perhaps a clever guise to remind us that he's respecting the old and welcoming the new.

"Breathe" is the first single from Rey's forthcoming EP, due out later this summer. - Juan Rodríguez

King Corduroy drops music video for Americana track "Workin' for a Livin"

Americana artist King Corduroy will release his new EP Avalon Ave. on August 16th; to preview the drop, he's released the single "Workin' for a Livin", along with its music video. A little rootsy and swampy, "Workin' for a Livin" mixes a little Texas blues and Southern rock with sounds from the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans' French Quarter. For the better part of the past decade, King Corduroy has written songs that reflect the world around him, and "Workin' for a Livin" helps to tell the stories of people doing whatever it takes to get by in the somewhat unstable world we live in today. Take a look at the music video for the single, which features little clips of people on the job doing what they can to survive. - Will Sisskind

Ariel Wang to release second single “House Upon a Hill”

This August 3rd at the Starline Social Club, Ariel Wang releases her second single, “House Upon a Hill,” off of her forthcoming album Bridges. The set will feature her string chamber orchestra, The Composer Arranger Performer Orchestra (CAPO). Wang's music has simple folk melodies with an orchestral feel and although the vocals are at times not the strongest component of these songs, they are enveloped by a warm chorus of violins, booming cello and compelling drumlines. Wang’s music feels like the soundtrack to a powerful moment and listening, watching, you can’t help but feel overwhelmed in the right kind of way. Join the band at Starline, where they’ll be opening for Meerna’s album release. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
