The Strayngers are an alternative band from Los Angeles comprised of Shane Tanksley, guitarist Sergio Galindo and bassist Jesse Es.Inspired by the unique environments of Mexico City, Los Angeles and everywhere in between—their sound offers dreamy sonic landscapes paired with grounded, lucid rhythms and vocals.

Formed in 2019, The Strayngers started playing out at clubs and festivals around the city and developing a reputation for their live performances, while simultaneously recording a debut full length album

This record eventually turned into two related pieces of work that will form both episodes of their debut release: I Don’t Know.

Toronto-based artist Loviet has recently released her new single, ” Easier” “Easier” is a fantastic mid-tempo alternative rock track filled with emotion. It’s also the third and ultimate track from Loviet’s second EP of 2023, titled “Little Heaven,” which is a self-proclaimed collection of sad songs.

Last spring, she embarked on a tour with JP Cooper, gracing sold-out venues across North America, including venues like ‘The Roxy’ in LA. Additionally, Loviet played Bluesfest, FEQ, and Lollapalooza. Now, she is on a USA Tour supporting Mating Ritual, maritimes supporting The Beaches.

Loviet considers herself a live artist first and foremost.

“I think I’m a live artist first and that my strengths are definitely in my live show. When performing, it’s your stage and you get to make it whatever you want, while recording has always felt to me like I’m kind of walking onto somebody else’s stage. I’m learning to understand more of how to own both stages, be it producing my own music or finding like-minded collaborators and producers, but I really want to find that connection with both. There is something so intimate about being anywhere in the world with your headphones on, listening to your favorite songs, so recorded music means a lot to me. Nothing’s been more challenging for me coming up than when people say things like, “The live show is way better than the record” or that they prefer one over the other. I’m really happy that my recent releases are bridging more of that gap, and kind of live and breathe in the same worlds now! It sometimes feels like a different version of myself gets recorded than the one on stage, but I think those two artists are now working together more on both platforms.”

Singer-songwriter Lila Dupont just released a new song called “Dance and Smoke and Sing,” reminiscent of the 90s, which fans of indie pop will love. She wrote it while she was sick and going through a breakup.

Dupont says, “The song is about wanting to leave a place and a person behind in order to start a new life…I used to have a lot of trouble walking away from certain situations, so I loved the process of writing this song because in a way it became a self-realization that I have the freedom to do what I want.”

The New York native is now based in England, where she’s collaborating with Grammy-winning producer Scott Jacoby on her next few singles. Check out the video here.

Jady, the Alt-Pop Duo from Columbus, Ohio, Preps for Sophomore Album: ‘Napalm'”

They embarked on this project shortly after releasing their debut album, with the goal of grappling with the expectations set before them. As their music grew, so did their anxiety and the pressure to satisfy their audience. Each song in the project provided a glimpse into their experiences during the past year, shedding light on the highs and lows of starting a band and the ongoing internal struggle of whether compromising their artistic vision was worth it for success. They chose a haunted house as the central symbol of the album, continuing the narrative from their previous work, “The Haze.”

Jady is a rising Alt-Pop Duo from Columbus, Ohio. It all began when 19-year-old Jarrett Doherty, who had just finished touring with his longtime friends Twenty One Pilots, decided to form the band. Twenty One Pilots has played a crucial role in helping them develop their music. In just one year, Jady released their first album “The Haze,” which blends different musical styles. They’ve also sold out shows in Columbus, Cleveland, and Nashville in front of over 200 people, opened for Jay Joseph and Arrested Youth (in Jay’s band) on tour, and their debut album has garnered over 1 million streams across various music platforms. They are the fastest-growing band to come out of Columbus this year. This fall, they’re going on a nationwide tour with The Astronomers, releasing their second album called “Napalm,” and have booked a headlining show in their hometown with a capacity of 1,400 people.

Bay Area rockers French Cassettes return with their third new single in three years ‘Medium Horny‘.

Probably one of the strangest songs we’ve ever written, but the only hiccup was when I told the band the name of the song and I remember there was a full three seconds of pause,” vocalist Lorenzo Scott Huerta shares of the new song, which is called “Medium Horny,” “Then we got to work.”

The song explores mental health seriously, and the music is like a dreamy pop song with acoustic guitars. . “[It] started as just finger shapes I liked the look of on my guitar,” Huerta confesses. “But truth be told the inspiration is split into four of my favorite songwriters: The first verse is Johnny Marr, middle section is Jeff Lynne and Bill Evans, the outro is Elliott Smith. I’ve never heard a full Evans song in my life, I don’t think, but I’ve heard he does ‘chord solos’ and I loved that idea so I wrote a guitar solo of just strummed chords. When we recorded it, I tried to re-record the guitars, and our guitarist Mackenzie asked ‘Why?’ Which was a good point. So we just kept the demo guitars.”

The music video for the song gets even weirder. Director Syra McCarthy was allowed to turn a dream from their childhood into a video that goes along with the song. “From ages seven to 15 I had this recurring dream that this suave alien named Charles would fly down from the sky in a cool car, park in front of my house, and charm my neighbors and family into coming home with him, even offering me my favorite Tootsie Pop (cherry)—but I was never sold,” McCarthy explains. “Listening to ‘Medium Horny,’ the psychedelic sad-boy sway made me think of (yes) the literal meaning, but also, Charles. How easily we can feel so numb and unsatisfied on the day to day, and how easily someone like Charles could seduce us with ‘happiness’ capitalism.
