The Joe Policastro Trio "Take on Me" (A-ha Cover)

We are proud to be able to premiere the new single, "Take on Me", from The Joe Policastro Trio. This is a cover of the classic A-ha song, and is taken from their forthcoming fifth album, Sounds Unheard 2012-2022, which is due out tomorrow, August 12th.

The album combines recordings made by the trio from its earliest iteration to the present day, and is comprised of new material and unused tracks from the band’s previous albums. Aside from one original tune, "Whose Muse," the album demonstrates the ability of the trio of Joe Policastro (bass), Dave Miller (guitar), and Mikel Avery (drums) to turn a classic song inside out and find something new every time.

   

Jordan Reyes "The Tide"

Jordan Reyes has released the first single, "The Tide", from his forthcoming album, Everything Is Always, which is due out via American Dreams on October 28th.

This project has taken Reyes over two years to complete, and it documents his journey from anxiety to medication triggered depression to zen to distance biking and marathon running.

"The Tide" is dark, filled with an unsettling drone, but also contains a melody and near chant that helps the listener manage the wave.

   

Young Jesus "Ocean"

Chicago Native, Los Angeles based musician John Rossiter (aka Young Jesus) has the lead single, "Ocean", from his forthcoming album, Shepherd Head.

For this first single he is joined by the Louisville, KY based artist Tomberlin, and it shows the unique recording approach he took for this project. He used found sounds, recording random people on the street, and experimenting with white noise. The result is a beautiful first offering.

   

This August Age "Paradise"

This August Age has released the first single, "Paradise", from his forthcoming debut album Artifacts which is due out this Fall.

This is the piano-driven Indie Pop of Singer/Songwriter Ryan Klockner.
