Laura Burhenn releases new 2-song single “Apples & Oranges”

The Washington, D.C. native has released a 2-song single featuring the lead “Apples & Oranges” and the second, “Good Medicine” under her own name.

Burhenn has worked under other monikers such as The Mynabirds and Georgie James, but this new material reminds me a lot of what she’s done in the past as a solo artist on Wanderlust, but shows tremendous growth as an artist.

New single, “Hit, Run” from Boston’s indie pop project, Photocomfort

From Boston’s incredible music scene, comes an artist with such a unique creative vision for music. Indie pop project, Photocomfort (Justine Bowe, ex-member of pop band, Magic Man), has released a new single, “Hit, Run.”

The track opens with solid electronics creating such ethereal and dream-like emotions. Bowe sings sweetly about an old relationship, demanding to escape, and be free to run.

“…get these golden handcuffs off me / get this piano off my back / I wanna run, I wanna run…”

Best Music of 2013

There have been so many great records released this year, I had no idea where to start. These are just a few of my top favorites from 2013. And by the way, these are in no specific order… After several weeks of working on this here it goes:

  1. Courtney Barnett – The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas

I admit that when I first heard her, I wasn’t so sure, but the lyrics are great. She illustrates the scene from the lyrics in her songs.
