Abby Sage

SONG PICK: Abby Sage – Fever Dream

“Fever Dream” deals with one of the hardest situations in a relationship: unrequited love.

SONG PICK: Ross Newhouse – Ohio

When a talented singer/songwriter, comfortably at home in the folk music genre, adds electronic elements to his music, magic can happen!

Today, the English indie rock trio in earnest releases their self-titled debut EP with six personal, moving tracks. The EP was recorded in a converted barn in single takes, which leads to a organic, honest sound.

Sarah and Thomas, who take turns on vocals, were so kind to give us the background of each of the six tracks.

“Saturn’s Rejoice” takes you onto a journey into a strange but fascinating world, a “far off cabalistic dreamland” how Georgia Collins, the woman behind Silky Disturbance puts it.

Kerri Martin

NEW EP: Kerri Martin – Haunting Me

Kerri Martin is a young musician from Orlando, Florida who has a refreshingly bold approach to pop music. “I am so happy to be living in an age where I can create complete tracks in my bedroom,” she says, but instead of crafting the abstract electronic soundscapes that dominate today’s pop music, she sticks to guitars and keyboards – she plays both herself – and produces a sound reminiscent of a big studio full of session musicians in the 80s.
