Beauty Queen stakes a vibe that is all her own on "Sold You Out," new EP out 4/19

Kate Iannitello, the artful mind behind Beauty Queen, is set to release her new EP, Out Of Touch, tomorrow. And with two singles already released, we were blessed with her latest drop, “Sold You Out.” Although her sound might be familiar to that of Beach House and Jack Antonoff's Bleachers, she has staked a vibe that is all her own. Sending dreamy pop sensations up and down her listener’s spine, Iannitello is an instant starter pack to your beach day. 

Out of Touch is out tomorrow, April 19 via Sleep Well Records. Kayla Hay

   

Malibu Blackout release single "Addy" on 04.26; play Springwater Supper Club 05.16

Malibu Blackout brands themselves online as "//fuzz//rock//pop//dance//move//yo//ass", which seems accurate, considering their first two singles "What I've Done" and "For The World" have a sizable funky dance rock vibe for a rising band. The trio's new single "Addy" will drop on April 26th, and from snippets on Facebook, it sounds like it'll pack quite a punch. If you want to catch Malibu Blackout live, you can see them perform at Springwater Supper Club on May 16th along with Boston-based visitors Blindspot and fellow local acts Pickup Sticks and The Down Squad. Until then, and until "Addy" drops, jam out to "For The World" below. - Will Sisskind

Maru "Vela EP"

Maru Martinez is the Guitarist for the Progressive Metal band Paper Hero. Last week she released her solo debut EP, "Vela", and it is a breathtaking departure from Metal of Paper Hero. On this project her intricate guitar playing is on full display and accompanied by the intensely talented Jessica Burdeaux of City Mouth on drums.

The lone track with vocal is called “Sola” and features a contribution from Bernadette Conant of Bernie & The Wolf.

This EP is thoughtful, beautiful, Post-Rock, and after three times through, still left us wanting more.
