Pecas to premier single & video this Valentine's Day at Alphaville

It’s easy to get lulled into a false sense of security by first impressions - even as the painful truth is staring you right in the face. That’s what’s remarkable about the music of Pecas - behind tranquil synths lie words of fear and uncertainty so subtle they could easily get washed away, like a whispered confession to a friend after midnight. However, Sandy Davis, the mastermind of Pecas, holds command over the impact of her music, and lyrics like those from her 2018 track "Tuesdays" stick with you long after your last listen: “Do you ever just fall apart on Tuesdays after dark?” Pecas has been working on music with record label Broken Circles, and on Valentine’s Day, she will be premiering a new single and music video at Alphaville - but in the meantime, check out her 2018 EP After Dark, below. - Sunny Betz





Nighttime to bewitch audiences at Alphaville tonight (02.06)

While other genres toy with imaginary futures for sources of inspiration, those writing folk music today still find endless lyrical material in the traditions and sounds of the past. But more often than not, a "new" sound is simply a forgotten one, reimagined. Perhaps that is what makes the music of Nighttime so special: listening to her 2018 LP Hand in the Dark takes us back to a soundscape that's vaguely familiar but almost entirely forgotten. In the record, Goodman relies on influences dating back to the middle-ages, with drum-less acoustic arrangements, droney harmonies (in a church choir kind of way), and a voice deepened with conviction and more than a little sadness. The results are mesmerizing.
Nighttime will play at Alphaville on February 6th - have a listen to the haunting Hand in the Dark below. - Sunny Betz

SIRINTIP brings complex jazz-influenced tunes to Trans Pecos 02.07

It’s easy to talk about personal and cultural background when breaking down the music of SIRINTIP. Their frontwoman’s childhood journey from Thailand to Sweden and then to New York is definitely a source of inspiration. However, the complex and vibrant sound of SIRINTIP is also a product of honed technical skill and a deep love of jazz, a passion that they were able to share at a recent three day jazz singing workshop at New Jersey’s OCVTS Performing Arts Academy. SIRINTIP will play Trans-Pecos with Elijah Fox, Rosemary Minkler and Devon Yesberger on February 7; check out a great example of their adventurous arrangements in their latest video for “Don’t Give Up”, below. - Sunny Betz

Daisy the Great shares quiet single "famous" + plays string of shows in NYC

It can be easy to overlook music that gets released during the glut of year-end lists pushed out around the holidays. This is especially true for music that appears as small and unassuming as that of Daisy the Great. However, their newest single “famous” definitely deserves reexamination. Combining twee aesthetics and simple vocal harmonies, the duo packs quaint imagery into a haunting track. Ugly sweaters, gumboil rings and fitting into new shoes all act as a disarmer before the hook asks what the point of life is if there’s no possibility of fame. There’s no denying this is a straightforward presentation, with plucky guitars gently strumming along, yet it’s the clash between the hartfelt folksy delivery and the mundane topic that fills the latter with a deeper existential meaning. Daisy the Giant celebrated their album release party at Baby’s All Right on Jan. 26 and will go on to play several dates in the NYC area between February and March. -Tucker Pennington

Teulu

Teulu’s music is a soft place to lay your head at night. It’s quietly but powerfully hopeful, the sort of music we need to get by in today’s world. “For The Learner” has a damp, earthy feel to it. It’s similar to the sensation of digging your fingers through damp grass, or the taste of a sweet, yet tannic tea. The soft, lilting tones take you gently by the hand and lead you into the best scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Each song infuses the listener with the gentle gray skies we wake up to most days. It's hard to capture the beauty of sunshine melting into cloudy skies, but Teulu does a wonderful job.
