Sail By Summer: LowLowLow

Scandinavian duo Sail By Summer offer yet another slice of Eighties inspired New Wave. The new single LowLowLow is a tightrope walk between grief and joy, the go to recipe for Danish keyboard player Jens Kristian and Norwegian singer William Hut. It makes for captivating listening, a multifaceted colourful gem with a dark core. It will be included on their forthcoming debut album Casual Drive, out on August 9.

Tracy Shedd: new album "The Carolinas" 09/20; stream "Kissing and Romancing"

It's been awhile since the last Tracy Shedd album. After releasing her acoustic album Arizona in 2013 she formed the left-field electronic duo Band & The Beat with her husband James Tritten, but now she is back with a new indie rock album called The Carolinas, due for release on September 20 via Science Project Records (vinyl) and Fort Lowell Records (digital).

Lead single Kissing and Romancing is a rambling garage rocker with tons of reverb, proof of her impeccable knack for both melody and spot-on guitar mayhem. The album was inspired by the couple's move to North Carolina. It's obvious that she has no regrets of their reallocation. Real estate brokers can't make this shit up.
