The Boot is premiering “Chicago,” the new single from fast-rising Nashville/Eureka country singer-songwriter Matt Jordan:

A mid-tempo country-rock song, “Chicago” is wistful and brooding, with lyrics that paint a vivid picture: “Fall growing in with the winter breeze / Hands in my pocket on a crowded street / Thinking about when your fingers locked in mine / I wander by the bay where the waves hit the wall / Remember that summer just before the fall / When everything was going great ’til you said goodbye.” The chorus of “Chicago” adds to the tune’s melancholy feel, as Jordan confesses, “I hear the skyline lights are awful pretty / But I can’t find the good in nothing since I let you go / I’m just a wishful-thinking boy stuck in the city / Talking to your ghost / Dying in Chicago.”

“Because (Randy Bemrose of Radiation City) pushes us to dig into our imaginative cores on debut single ‘Lock-Out Time,’ a technicolor tapestry of thought & sound. (via Plume Records)”

For the Rabbits features “Dusk” by Magic Magic Roses

Thanks to For The Rabbits for including “Dusk” by Magic Magic Roses (Plume Records) in this week’s feature!

Building around a gentle acoustic-strum and rattling marching drum; Dusk is a wash of hazy, Autumnal sunshine, rich with gentle melancholy. Like fellow modern Americana-acts Hurray For The Riff Raff or Cicada Rhythm, Magic Magic Rose manage to create something that’s at once nostalgic and fresh, and show once again that this is a genre with plenty left to say.

Belwood Music reviews Magic Magic Roses’ single “Dusk”

Thanks to Belwood Music for the lovely review of “Dusk,” title track of the new album from Magic Magic Roses out December 2nd from Seattle’s Plume Records:

The latest song from San Francisco band Magic Magic Roses surrounds itself with a kind of mystical air of beauty, like a fine veil of mist clinging on in the early morning haze. ‘Dusk’, the title (and closing) track from their upcoming third album out 2nd December, will be sure to appeal to fans of such equally gorgeous and ethereal folk acts as The Staves and First Aid Kit. The sparse and wistful arrangement and the warm layered harmonies create a soothing lullaby to lure you away into a peaceful, dreamlike trance. The song’s aesthetic whispers to you pastoral tales of strolling through golden fields under amber sunsets, and of crackling fires on cold autumn nights. It’s the kind of music that you can get lost in and simply disappear for a while in some better place.

Belwood Music features Brumby’s “Leave a Light On” as a Top Track

Belwood Music picks BRUMBY’s “Leave a Light On” as a Top Track:

The synth-laden Americana vibe, the anthemic chorus and the bright guitar melodies make this song essential listening for fans of Bear’s Den and The War On Drugs. “Leave a Light On” makes the perfect soundtrack for an introspective, late night drive or equally for carefree summer cruising. Whichever way you’re headed, whatever path you follow, the new single from BRUMBY is all the company you need.
