New Music Video: "For Billy" - Sheena, Anika and Augusta

Sheena, Anika and Augusta, a.k.a. Sheena Ozzella (Lemuria), Anika Pyle (Katie Ellen, Chumped), and Augusta Koch (Cayetana, Gladie), will release their debut EP Simple Pleasures on September 6 via Asian Man Records. Its lead single, “For Billy,” is a spellbinding a cappella that interlaces the trio's vocals in a penetrating, fluid beauty. The song is seemingly a reflection of the emotive path taken to reach the present moment. (Photo by Katie Krulock)

   

New Bad Heaven Ltd. LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Strength, the new album from John Galm's (ex-Snowing) Bad Heaven Ltd., has recently arrived. The delicate, intimate narratives wrap the listener in a tranquil, hypnotic state. The soothing, somber dynamic drastically alters when earth-shaking, fuzz-filled force enters the equation. You can catch Bad Heaven Ltd. at The Barbary on Sunday, September 8, as part of a lineup that also includes Very Bad Vibes, Highnoon, and Proper.

Humeysha releases sandy new single "Nusrat on the Beach"

Humeysha -- the project of musician and songwriter Zain Alam -- will release new EP Nusrat on the Beach on August 2nd; the record's name takes inspiration from a dream of Alam's, in which he saw legendary Pakistani vocalist and musician Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on the beach. You can hear some of the passion and devotion from Nusrat's music in the EP's title track, mixed with the chilled out indie sounds from Alam which convey the surf and sand. The whole song acts as an aural gateway to Alam's dream; you'll dream it yourself. Take a listen to "Nusrat on the Beach" below. - Will Sisskind
