Elizabeth Cook, “Bones”
The Americana badass gets her Mad Max on in the apocalyptic online video for “Bones,” a smoke-present of a tune off her forthcoming album Aftermath. “I have on your bones all over my neck/I am the keeper of the flame,” she moans, not so significantly threatening you as telling you the way it is gonna be. It’s a dominant rock & roll effectiveness, tailor-built for dark bars and even darker souls.
City Mountain, “You Just can’t Win Em All”
The Asheville, North Carolina bluegrassers sidle up to the bar for some tear-in-your-beer honky-tonk. A enhance to Hank Williams’ “You Earn Yet again,” “You Cannot Earn Em All” is forlorn and woozy, but there’s one thing oddly reassuring about it also — the concept that no one lives a existence devoid of a loss or two. Penned by the group’s Phil Barker, he phone calls it the “last track on the jukebox.” Drop in an additional quarter.
The Suffers, “Take Me to the Great Times”
Houston, Texas-dependent team the Suffers ramp up the funk in “Take Me to the Great Situations,” a energetic ode to the joys of touring daily life even though it’s indefinitely paused for most musicians.

Emily Barker, “The Girl Who Planted Trees”
U.K.-based folksinger Emily Barker will release her new album A Dark Murmuration of Words on September 4th and in “The Woman Who Planted Trees,” she finds a relationship to the earlier through mother nature. “I can inform my age by the height of trees/By the a long time they’ve stood expanding in excess of me,” she sings, her apparent voice accompanied by a circular finger-type guitar pattern and an arrangement that swells and turns haunting.
Michael Logen and Jennifer Hanson, “Tides Will Turn”
Americana singer-songwriter Michael Logen groups with place singer-songwriter Jennifer Hanson (the Wreckers’ “Leave the Pieces”) for 5 songs on the newly released EP Here’s to Hoping. In the meditative, dreamy “Tides Will Switch,” the two harmonize fantastically and envision a position in time when problems will start to recede.
