Zelma Stone’s “Light Bulb Boy” Exciting Taste Off New EP

There is nothing usual about the vocal powerings of Zelma Stone’s front woman, Chloe Zelma Studebaker. How do we mean that? There are the self-proclaimed modern influences of Angel Olson (we hear that), the haunting calls like Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick, some Kate Bush feels. This stuff is hard to find and there’s a blooming of those same types of lyrical and vocal strengths within this work, repackaged into a more modern type of dreamy folk with some touch-of-grunge rock. Tracks like “Light Bulb Boy” and “River” have surprising key-shifts, killer baselines, sexy drums and a smack of tamborine. Challenging, fierce and empowering. Let’s go see them tomorrow night, where Richshaw Stop hosts their album release party. January the 19th with an all female-fronted bill of Mayya & The Revolutionary Hell Yeah, Moon Daze and Mae Powell. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





Bryson Cone: "Destination Nightmare"

Bryson Cone dropped his song “Destination Nightmare,” and it’s every bit as dreamy and jazzy as it sounds. This song takes you waltzing on the moon while a full band, complete with holographic keytars, plays in the background. The distortion of Cone’s voice is romantic and dreamy, but also has some more serious notes. He keeps the track, and thus the audience, focused. This in turn allows for a fuller appreciation of the song’s artistry. It is an intricately layered song, which makes sense given Cone’s background in mixed media and sound collage. Cone’s talent is made perfectly clear with “Destination Nightmare.” We can’t wait to see where he heads next.

Moving Panoramas Tease Album Release with New Single "ADD Heart"

You dont need a Women's March patch, a Gloria Steinem novel or an 'I'm With Her' bumper sticker to be considered a strong female in 2019. Moving Panoramas began as an all-female dreampop band that not only exuded female autonomy and empowerment but they did so without the cliche man-hating rhetoric or knee-jerk sexist vitriol.  Frontwoman, Leslie Sisson, is a music-industry vet who happens to offer an angelic voice and hypnotizing guitar work on top of her strong leadership and songwriting prowess. While the band now features male members and has also added Sweet Spirit's Cara Tillman amongst others, it is still very much the Leslie-show. While the band certainly still retains some shoegaze elements on their newer tracks, they have opted for a more frenetic aesthetic that injects urgency and excitement and is basically more ADD-friendly. The music video for "ADD Heart" was directed by Willi Patton and he does a great job conveying the sleek, sexy and mysterious aura that inhabits the song. The sophomore album for Moving Panoramas, In Two, will be released on February 22nd through Modern Outsider and all signs point to Sisson's talents being on full display. That is great news for the rest of us.
