Rachael Sage is back with a four-song EP called NEW DESTINATION which is out in NOW, on her own label MPRESS Records.
This is just pure pop. Catchy, fun and insightful lyrics to boot!
The EP also features musical contributions by longtime studio collaborators including drummer Quinn (Daft Punk), cellist Dave Eggar (A Great Big World, Philip Phillips), guitarist Jack Petruzelli (Rufus Wainwright), violinist Kelly Halloran (G Love), and bassist Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega). Percussionist Everett Bradley (E Street Band) also contributed, as did Grammy nominated engineer John Shyloski (Johnny Winter) and Grammy winning mixer Andy Zulla (Kelly Clarkson). She sure is in good company!
If you like Sara Bareilles or Tanya Donelly then you'll love this! With a career that spans almost 20 years I think it's about time she breaks into the mainstream and give some of these radio pop divas a run for their money.

Hidden Basement is a collection of unreleased tracks, b-sides and remixes from Jesse Futerman.
This release highlights a number of Jesse's different styles, including some more uptempo house-style tracks, while most of the tracks will be thoroughly enjoyed by those familiar with his previous work.
In Jesse's own words, "Many of these tracks were made after my third EP (Exquisite Basement), around the time I started toying with house music more and more. Deebs helped me on one of the tracks (Lonely Soul), he had come over quite a few times to work on it and I was very happy with the result. Ryan (Hemsworth) enjoyed a beat I was working on called Santiago and requested the stems - the result is the remix on this release. I'd been a long-time fan of kidkanevil and I freaked out when he remixed my track (A Good Man Is Gone) - been listening to him for many years."
Seriously...just download this now. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Here is the hypnotic video for 'Anonymous Club' from Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett, off her new release 'The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas'.
The awesome video was directed by Celeste Potter. She shares how she came up with the video.
In Celeste’s own words:
“When I was making this video, I thought a lot about how dust is mostly dead skin cells; and when I spend time with someone, pieces of us are floating about around our heads. The space between you and me is made of us. I also thought about how we form one another through our shared experiences. I just wanted to make a video that communicated a feeling of people creating one another through relationships. All the dust and relationships makes me feel so connected to others but also incredibly lonely at the same time. I wanted to help people feel that. I think Courtney's song feels like that.”
Really beautiful stuff.
