Happy Monday. Time for our first Monday Mashup of 2018, and there’s lots of new stuff for you. Here we go!
FORMER INDIE ARTIST MILCK CONTINUES HER 2017 SUCCESS
MILCK has continued her myriad of successes as 2017 closes out by being named to two important lists – Buzzfeed‘s “The 17 Biggest Baddass Women of 2017 You Probably Never Heard Of” and Billboard Magazine‘s “The 20 Best Protest Songs of 2017.” Both of these additions stem from her creation of “Quiet,” which was written as a protest to the Inauguration of President Trump, as well as MILCK’s refusal to not talk about past mistreatment, and ultimately resulted in her being signed to a major label. That song was considered to be the #1 protest song of 2017. Congrats to MILCK! We can’t wait to see what she does next.
First up today is the latest single from Jay Katana entitled “When She Dies.” It is an impressive bit of instrumental guitar magic. We can hardly wait for the release of his album, which we will review shortly.
Our final single today comes from the band Lesser Pieces. “Texas” is a grooving and soulful song that should give you a sweet chill time soundtrack. Let us know what you think.
Blue Ēlan Records has a pair of artists releasing new videos this week. First up is brand new artist Polly Baker, who has released the lyric video of her first single, “Scraped Knees.” We simply love this video and the song, and can’t wait for the upcoming release.
The second artist, Cindy Alexander, has released the official video for her song “Book of Love,” from her just-released Nowhere to Hide album. This song is simply beautiful and is acoustically driven, as are all the songs on the new album. Enjoy!
Last but not least is the latest from perennial LA Music Critic Award winners The Spider Accomplice. They released their latest video “Swallow” on Christmas Day, and it was the best present we received. Let’s rock out with TSA!
