NYC rock artist Kibby released “Don’t Make Me Feel” from his upcoming 4th studio album, “Not Not Cool Anymore,” out on October 27, 2023. If you’re looking for a song that is dark and grungy, reminiscent of the 90s, and that will make Sonic Youth gush, this is that song.

Kibby’s new album is his heaviest and most raw yet, featuring distorted guitars and intense drums. Despite the rawness, it retains Kibby’s signature catchy hooks and lively rhythms. The album explores themes of disappointment, growth, and the struggle to find a secure place in life.

Born in Queens, NY, in 2018, Kibby was conceived with a goal of releasing one album each year for a decade. The journey started in 2019 with the first album, “Seance Rock,” a soft and catchy bedroom rock recorded in Iowa City and finished in Queens. The album’s release in April 2020 coincided with the COVID-19 lockdowns, preventing live shows but shaping Kibby’s future as a recording project.

Check out Jade LeMac and her track “Steal My Skin.” It’s a perfect song for a rainy day—sad and melancholic, an anthem for those who are ready to give up on life and tired of trying.

Meet Jade, an 18-year-old singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Vancouver. She creates emotionally introspective soundtracks for your sad nights and delivers anthems for when you want to feel empowered.

Growing up in a close-knit, multicultural family on Vancouver Island, Jade discovered her love for music early on.

She honed her skills by lending her voice to dance singles for the electronic label Monstercat and gained a following on Instagram.

In 2020, Jade found success on TikTok, amassing over 1.2 million followers. In 2021, she released the captivating single “Constellations,” comparing the freckles on people’s bodies to constellations. The independent release garnered over 20 million streams. She continued her momentum with “Let Me” and “Same Place” in 2022. Her latest release, “Aimed to Kill,” has amassed over 6 million streams to date. GLAAD recognized her as one of “10 LGBTQ Women in Music to Listen to this Pride Month.”

Jade’s journey led her to a deal with Arista Records, where her vision takes center stage in her debut EP.

After a six-year break, Los Angeles-based alternative rock outfit Maudlin Strangers is back with a new track “I’m Not In The Right Mind“. It’s a great alternative rock song, drawing influences from some of the best indie acts, ranging from Atlas Genius to Young The Giant.

The band says, “The track is about the moments where you realize you’re stuck in a habitual cycle of addiction, and finally wanting to break free from it. We use so many different things to distract and numb ourselves from the difficulty of life, whether it’s drugs, social media, alcohol, relationships, work, and it’s that distraction itself that becomes addicting. Recognizing what’s harming you and actually feeling the want to change it, is a far more complicated yet powerful feeling.”

Jake Hays, a Los Angeles native, started Maudlin Strangers in 2010 as a solo indie rock project. After releasing some independent music and forming a band with friends (Jeff Lehrer, Kenny Benson, and Richie Gonzales), they signed with BMG/Vagrant Records and released the “Overdose” EP in 2015. They toured with Bad Suns and LANY and supported Cold War Kids before taking a break in 2016. Fast forward to 2023, Maudlin Strangers is back with a new lineup (Richie Gonzales, Alexander “Schmorgle” Morgan, and Drew Bruchs).
