From the Submissions: Funk/R&B band Valipala

Take a little bit of '60s Motown funk, mix that with today’s R&B, add with some jazz overtones, and you have Valipala. Their debut EP Mango City, released last October, is a fun, twisting journey through genres. The opening track “Mongolian Afternoon” (streaming below) showcases the powerful vocals of Lauren Scales; it sounds like the soundtrack to a happy, sunny, summer walk through the city. The band does an excellent job of giving the spotlight to each instrument at one point or another and their cohesion as bandmates is also evident in the EP's fourth track “Century Star.” Scales’ airy yet solid voice carries lightly over the instruments behind her, creating a harmonious blend of synths, drums, brass section, and voice. -Lily Crandall

Amir Tripp “Hardball “ Video

Amir Tripp released his latest album Pyro back in March, and it featured contributions from King Louie, Saba, and Trapo. One of the coolest aspects of this project is all of the original artwork by Makhai Foy, which has been complied into a a comic book.

Recently Tripp released a great video for the single “Hardball”.

Interview with nnin

Last month we stumbled upon a new album on bandcamp by an artist we had never heard before (or at least we think we’ve never heard before) called nnin. On “[re:Cover]” she has reimagined a collection of very well-know songs ranging from “Wicked Games” by Chris Isaac to “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus. On each song she takes a really unique approach and genuinely gives each song a new life.

We knew we had to write about the album, but in beginning that process we realized that we knew nothing about nnin. There were no links to social media or websites, no upcoming shows, no past releases, none of the information we typically share with our readers. However, there was the standard link to contact the artist that resides on all bandcamp pages. We clicked that link and here is the resulting interview with the mysterious nnin.


Window, Window

Window, Window recently released their latest EP, "Nothing Doesn’t Hurt", via Brace Cove Records. The five song EP is somewhere between sad piano pop and DIY garage rock.

The duo of Kevin and John have been recording together since 2012 and released their debut album, American Lonely, back in 2016.
